This is the kind of place you wish to visit if you want to enjoy relax, kindness and a very comfortable room. I stayed 5 nights, standard garden view room, clean, with a small but very nice patio with an outdoor bench and a green garden all around. I'm not pool lover, but if you are, you will get what...

It was supposed to be a lovely week on Gili Air... but it was clouded by a really BAD experience at Villa Karang. One may think that I am a complainer, please read the review through, then make up your mind and decide whether you'd like to go there. First things first... I have made a reservation about a month... More

Ok standard but did not manage to help us with simple requests such as beach towels etc. Nice pool area. The restaurant is a disaster. Do not go there. Considered to skip the prepaid breakfast. Extremely slow service and poor quality. Staff is helpful but seems to be lacking necessary resources. Close to the harbour

Rooms were small (we had deluxe), showers were nice touch. Indo channels only on TV and nowhere to play all those bootleg DVD;s!!. Pool was small but clean... More

Ignore the bad reviews. We really enjoyed our stay and it was worth every penny. It was clean and the rooms were nice and airy. The outside shower was fun, although the drains smelt a little (but what do you expect on a remote island?!). The breakfast was okay and the members of staff were very polite and accommodating. Very... More

The food is not good at all. The schnitzel was rubbery and the hamburger was in pieces. The vegatables was not fresh but was frozen vegies that had been heated up and the mushrooms came from a can. But we did get a lot of chips. And the staff was nice.

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
