I spent 14 days on Kanawa, what was definitly the best choice I have ever made! They made a mistake with my booking, but it was solved perfectly! I loved the vibe, the staff, the snorkeling, the sunsets, the shooting stars, the diving, the tours (especially flying foxes) and the views! I stayed in a bungalow and a bale. Don't... More

(I just finished traveling around Indonesia and Vietnam for two and a half weeks with extended family consisting of 26 people - 13 adults and 13 kids, including my 4 month old) I have traveled all over Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia, and Kanawa is now one of my few favorite places on earth. Our group stayed there for 4... More

Kanawa is a place of pure natural beauty which is kept clean and pristine. The good bits: snorkeling, sunsets, location to national park, good vibe, some attentive staff, excellent dive school. Bits to improve: the tour to Rinca. A few risks were taken with a large group and currents. You let yourself in for an adventure. However we did see... More

We spent a few nights here and while it is simple and rustic, we loved it. We stayed in bungalow 7 and it was one of the only ones without a sink like the other bungalows. Had a great view. It was quiet when we were there so we felt like we almost had the place to ourselves. The service... More

Me and my girlfriend planned to relax a couple of days on Kanawa island after an exhausting conference on Bali. We called ahead and booked a room for three nights. We planned to arrive the day before in Labuan Bajo from where their boat leaves every day at 12pm. Our flight was cancelled and we had to fly on the... More

I would stay here again for the fabulous snorkeling. I enjoyed staying in the rustic bale (my partner not so much:)). I understand there is a cost as EVERYTHING needs to be shipped in. My only gripe was .... yes... the restaurant. The food itself was good. Restaurant service is shambolic to say the least. We ate there 4 times... More

We stayed on Kanawa in July, It was AMAZING. The island has a truly relaxed feel which is down to the staff and management. The snorkeling from the beach is out of this world. The island's location to Komodo and Rinca make it a perfect base to visit either location of the Komodo Dragons. The food was perfect and a... More

We have visited Kanawa last summer and everytime we plan a new vacation we hope it is going to be like Kanawa. Come here if you like: weaking up in front of the sea/ going to bed in front of the sea / snorkel and dive / living a 100% natural island experience

Everything has been said about Kanawa, and the place is almost always full. When I'm asked why I return there, on top of snorkeling, accommodations, activities, clean beaches, sunrise and sunset, ....and farniente, I never forget to talk about the food. The cook they have there made a difference. He's certainly part of the reasons why I invite people to... More

When I pulled up the page for Kanawa to leave my review I was really surprised to see negative comments from others. I loved my time on Kanawa and so did every other guest that I spoke with while I was there. In fact, I hadn't previously planned on visiting but I met a couple that had just recently come... More
