Kanawa is like a little secret paradise that if you are lucky enough to find and book far enough in advance, you will never ever want to leave. One tip--the food was okay but not great and as you are stuck there, it would be nice to have more basic, fresh food options. Still worth it though and we are... More

I found Kanawa online, with the option to book a tent instead of a bungalo. After sending an email with no response, we thought to stop by the island to check the accommodation options since we already had a free transfer there from our tour boat. The island is nice enough, with snorkeling, white broken coral sand, a nice hill... More

Idyllic and quiet but basic place to enjoy sun, sea and life. Staff is very nice and friendly. Bungalows (even the so called "deluxe double") are small and basic but except a fan in the night we didn’t miss anything. It is a bit annoying that you have to bring your own towels – in a place for 40 $US... More

Short review: It is with regret I give this place 1 star, as the island itself is very nice, and the surrounding sea makes for good, if not outstanding snorkelling – however it is the “Kanawa beach bungalow resort” that’s up for review here, and this is so badly run that it’s just not worth staying here. Their website and... More

We went to Kanawa island at the end of our 3 weeks trip in Indonesia. It was, by far, the highlight of our trip. Even though we stayed in many very fancy hotels during the trip (it was our honeymoon!), the island's simple bungalows were the most satisfying place to go back to at the end of the day. We... More

Great island, perfect for snorkeling. But bad staff, a bed full of bed bugs and horrible food. I should skip this island the next time. We stayed in bugalow 8, basic is okay, but a bed full of bed bugs is also for me too much.. Sorry. The staff didn't seem to care, gave us a new bugalow (without bed... More

Good or bad first? ... As an avid traveller you learn to see and promote the positives. So let's start with the good :) The Island (The Good) - Kanawa Island is beyond beautiful! It's picturesque landscape will take your breathe away. Surrounded by an amazing reef, the colours of the water are just as surreal as what you'd see... More

The upside: clean area and friendly services in the restaurant. Outdoor dinner area at night is so warm and cozy.. Its like being in dreamland. Snorkeling activity: love it! The downside: for me is the electricity>> It only turns on for about 4hours. After 10pm is total darkness. So bring itself flashlights or small battery powered lights if ur not... More

We were very enthousiastic when arriving to this place: highly recommended, nice reviews, nice pics on the Internet and good reactivity by email. Also, on arrival, the facilities were really nice: nice reef, good bungalows, good view, etc... Everything was here to make our stay nice ! Disappointment came from various reasons: - service: waiters prefering typing on their smartphones... More
