Stayed here 3 nights in July 2014: Beautiul: the rooms, the place! Its a not too-big-with-no-soul-resort, with a charming beach and pool area, the boss, manager and staff are kind and really helpful! We feel at home, i would say this is a "human" place ! For the people who says that the service is slow... its not slow, you're... More

The name is a bit misleading as they don't have kayaks for rent anymore, but this place is wonderful. We moved up to the north end of the island after staying closer to the center and wanting a bit more relaxing atmosphere. The manager (Lorianne I think?) was absolutely wonderful--so friendly and helpful, but not pushy as was the case... More

This place is to the northern end of the island and so is a bit more remote. The benefits of this are great and ensure you have a relaxed stay way from the busy strip. The area is a popular place to watch the sunset and the place caters for this perfectly. The rooms are basic but comfortable and quite... More

During our month in Indonesia we travelled around much without anything booked from home(Sweden). Before we went we made research and thought karma kayak would be a nice stay. But it turned out bad, especially because of the really bad service. First of all our toilet did not work. And we were asked to use our friends bathroom who stayed... More

We were very happy with our rooms and everything worked, including a hot shower. Staff and especially the manager was very attentive, always on site and helping us and answering our questions. She is Dutch so her English was great. There is a nice pool, bar, dining area and a lounging and eating area on the beach. They set up... More

We booked over the phone for one night and the decided to stay longer as the place was really nice and in the quiet part of the island. It's still a walking distance towards the party area, very close to the snorkeling part, overall - perfect location if you are looking so some chilled time. Our bungalow was really nice,... More

Have been there with Family. Location is quite nice and relaxed, away from the east coast which is very busy. The small compound is well managed by the NL owners, quite friendly, this also applies to the local staff always keen to help. Breakfast on the beach, looking at the light coming on Bali summits is awesome. Food is nice... More
