My friend and I absolutely loved our 5 nights on Gili Trawangan. It is paradise! It is clean, safe, relaxing, and unassuming. Karma Kayak is located at the north end of the island which means it is quiet and about 15-20 minutes walk away from most of the islands bars and restaurants. I loved the location, although my friend would... More

We stayed 4 nights at Karma Kayak in the front bungalow. When it comes to booking, we note that they are very honest in providing information: bungalows have no sea view since there is a little road between the bungalows and the beach. As far as we know now, this is the case on the whole island so don't expect... More

I stayed here over Christmas 2014 with my family and we loved it. Really nice and friendly staff and excellent service. It is definitely in the best location, away from the main strip which is very busy and loud, but still about a 15 to 20 min walk. Beautiful seating all around their beach area, from the tables at the... More

I couldn't have been happier when I chanced upon Karma Kayak for our 5 stay in Gili Trawangan. Located on the quiet north beach of Gili Trawangan, it really is the most idyllic, charming, relaxing beach side accommodation with lots of little private villas, nestled within garden surrounds for maximum privacy and relaxation! The villas are not located on the... More

Stayed in this fabulous little resort on the beach, on the quiet side of the island. Stayed six nights and cried when I left, we felt like we were leaving family!!. I can't say enough good things about the management, owners and staff! It's so quiet at night, no noise except for our gecko friend, that we thought was a... More

We chose Karma Kayak for its location away from the main strip, and because we wanted to indulge a bit more on Gili T compared to other locations we'd been to. And this was our favourite place of our three week trip. The place is lovely, the staff even lovelier, the beach is right there with corals and turtles, and... More

We cannot judge the Karma Kayak accomodation, staying nearby at Grasia Villas in the northcoast of Gili Trawangan. But once we discovered the Karma Kayak beach restaurant, we wanted nothing but to spend all our time there. The completely relaxed atmosphere, quiet music, lovely food and drinks (especially the sangria, meatballs, sate with peanutbutter sauce and the pancakes:-). Come early... More

If you're looking for that perfect bounty island feeling, this is the place. We stayed here for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Rooms are nice and clean, staff is super friendly, really helpful and they service with a smile. The beautiful beach with white sand and crystal clear blue water is right in front of the... More

Booked Karma Kayak over the internet after seeing photos and thinking it looked nice. It was very nice and being up the North end of the island away from the business was lovely. We did lots of walking around the island and were glad we had stayed where we were. Dave the manager was very helpful and friendly and the... More

We stayed here five nights in September. We had the Africa room. We liked: +Great place on Gili. Far away from the busy chaos of the east coast but still within walking distance to all the restaurants of the east coast. +beach area is perfect for hanging out in a very relaxing atmosphere with great chill out sounds +stunning sunsets!...
