Karma Kayak is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the island - the beach and sunsets here are pure paradise. It's nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the pubs and discos, but just a short walk (the island is only 7.5k in total) and you'll find yourself in the busy part of the island. Having... More

I booked Karma Kayak a while back after it getting some great reviews in Lonely Planet and also on this site, it sounded like the perfect place for a couple of nights of extra paradise after Gili Air.

We checked out very early in the morning (6am) so no... More

We wished for our honeymoon a combination of rest, space, fun but also entertainment in the form of snorkeling, diving and explore the environment. On the authentic island of Gili Trawangan have 2 enthusiastic Dutch women, Grace and Astrid, their dream realized by setting up a small holiday village by the sea and their own private beach . We have... More
