Villa Karang is just 100m on the left-hand (quiet) side of Gili Air’s arrival jetty – no horse and cart needed. The hotel has lovely rooms – well-decorated, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable – and bathroom finishes that you’d be happy to have in your own home (though obviously you may not want your home bathroom half-open to the sky!)....

What a nice treat! Somehow we overlooked this expansive and expensive looking resort when we were here last year, but this year we checked it out and were offered a very comparable low season rate for a large beautiful room with air con, fridge, and very large, beautiful bathroom. During our three days here, we enjoyed the great pool, quiet... More

The hotel itself at the beachfront is lovely, the grounds are well cared for and the pool just right in temperature. Food at the restaurant is great, the view is amazing as it overlooks the ocean. However, for the discounted price we were placed in the "other" side of the hotel - down a pathway about 50' away, past construction... More

The rooms are based in mini individual villas and are lovely. The semi 'open air' shower was a nice touch. Breakfast wasn't great but there's plenty of other options on the island. Wi-Fi is good and pool area is nice apart from a few wasps! Would happily stay again.

We had a booking at another hotel that was not so good, so walked to Villa Karang and were greeted with the friendliest staff at reception. She showed us two rooms and we took them straight away. They are located about 5 min (or 2min bike ride) to the left of the harbour. Everything is so close to get to... More

I had a good feeling about Vila Karang before I even got there. They reply to my email enquiry promptly and offer to arrange the pick up from Lombok airport. Rooms are basic but spacious with aircon in working order. Pool is of good size and clean. They also have bicycles for rental. Nothing is a bother for the staff... More

Villa Karang is a great place to stay on Gili Air. In a quiet area of Gili Air just 5 minutes walk from the ferry terminal / harbour. When you get off the ferry turn to the left and after 5 minutes walk and easy to find. There are horse and carts at the harbour if you have heaps of... More

We arrived unannounced at the Karang after having been badly let down by another hotel. Herna (spelling?) the lady at reception immediately showed us two lovely clean rooms (with ac and wifi). We had intended to travel down to Kuta after a few days but enjoyed it so much at The Karang that we stayed the whole week. Its a... More

We got off the ferry on Gili Air with no plan. One of us stayed with the bags and the other went searching for a place to stay. We found Villa Karang, a five minute walk from the ferry and as it was almost empty we got the room for half price. A nice new place with a lovely outdoor... More
