This Hotel is situated on the South side of the island, just to the west of where the boats dock. It's ever so slightly away from the main "strip" of accommodation / restaurants, but the island is so small it's not more than a 5 minute walk to these areas. We originally booked a standard room, only to find it... More

This hotel was everything you could dream off: the staff was friendly, the room and bathroom were beautiful, the pool was amazing for sunbathing and the breakfast was delicious. Only minor thing was that we had the room with a fan, but it still was crazy hot, which made it hard to sleep. This could easily be solved by taking... More

My husband and I really wanted to indulge in a spa treatment while on Gili Air. After riding our bikes around the island we choose Villa Karang Spa because it was the only spa on the island that we could find that had air conditioning (which in 90 degree heat was necessary). We decided to do a couples massage that... More

Villa Karang is nice resort park on the east side of Gili Air. It has a good location being almost next to the dock. It is on the end of the beach strip though but it is a nice walk to the end of the strip of bars, shops and restaurant. The rooms were simple, but nicely decorated and cleaned.... More

We'd viewed TA reviews and noted that many had rated this hotel average. But, we took the chance as we were struggling to find anything available last minute. We booked just one night initially and ended up staying for four. It's location is about a 7 minute walk out of the main restaurant area, which we like, and only a... More

We really enjoyed our time at Villa Karang. Located at the far end of the main strip but still on the beach, it was nice and quiet. We upgraded to an air con room which was very nice and clean, as was the previous one, though there was still no hot water. Staff were friendly.

After we checked TA reviews this accom. seemed to be the most suitable on Gili Air. So we booked for 5 nights. From the outside the hotel presents itself in a very nice way. The garden, pool and exterior is very kempt and nice to look at. Rooms are clean and kinda cute furnished. Staff is pretty friendly. Breakfast is... More

I would love to rate the hotel higher, but so much of it was disappointing. We had booked 1 double room and 2 twin rooms, but were given 3 double rooms. They tried to sort it out, but it took a while. The electricity was intermittent on 2 evenings and, despite paying for a superior room, we had no hot... More

We stayed for 3 nights initially and extended for one more. Staff very helpful and friendly, beautiful and peaceful. Fresh towels and cleaned everyday. Located out of the "loud area" but still walking distance to all restaurants etc ( very close to harbour and 1 min away from Ocean5) . The only two littles things that could be improved :... More
