What a beautiful and comfortable place to stay!!! Karma Kayak is really the place to be when you visit Gili Trawangan and you are looking for a magical and quiet spot. The 8 bungalows in a beautiful garden are very clean, comfortable and cosy, the bathroom is excellent with hot and fresh water ( wich is rare on Gili ),... More

We spent our 3 nights in Gili T in karma kayak. We booked through the website and paid half to confirm the booking (other half in cash at the end of our stay). The room is nice and clean. The restaurant offers many food and drink options (from salads to toats and tapas - unfortunately they never had the baguettes)... More

Clean, simple and pretty bungalow style accommodation with a beautiful seaside space - tapas style food was delicious and the staff were friendly and fun! Ideal place to go snorkelling but a tad disappointed that kayaking no longer offered though this did not take away from overall experience. Ten minute walk to main 'strip' of restaurants, bars, and shops.

We stayed for two nights but wished we could stay longer! Extremely friendly staff. Situated at the beach in the quiet, northern part of the island. They've got a nice, cosy restaurant on the beach where you can enjoy your breakfast in the morning (included), sunset in the evening and a private BBQ at night. The rooms are reasonably priced....

We found Karma Kayak to be the best place at north beach Gili Trawangan, Lombok. In a quiet area only a 20 min. walk to the vivid tourist area around "the strip". Karma Kayak has a good restaurant, food is served under the trees directly on the beach, a lovely spot and a great place to enjoy sunset! High and... More

We stayed for four nights and it was simply fantastic... The rooms are basic, but nice and clean. I liked the ecological approach, saving waste, water and energy. The staff was all friendly, funny and helpful. Food and breakfast were very good. The music always was chilly and fitted very well. We were sad we had to leave.

Had an excellent stay here on my honeymoon. The location is a little bit removed from the main strip, but nice if you want to stay somewhere a bit quieter. The walk isn't all that far though, and it's even closer by bike. Perfect spot for snorkeling just in front of the hotel. That was a huge plus. The staff... More

My wife and I upped our travelling budget a bit and stayed at Karma Kayak for almost 2 weeks. We loved the breakfast and chilling by the pool or borrowing some snorkelling equipment including crocs to go and view the turtles, rays and other sea life in the coral just out to sea. It's a great place and the rooms... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Karma Kayak after searching for a nice place to stay for about 2 hours. The hotel has a really nice location away from all the craziness and has an amazing beach in front of it. The breakfast and the food in general is also great and the whole decoration of the place is really... More
