This was our second trip to Indonesia all the way from South Africa. 2years ago we stayed at Karma Kayak for 5 nights and in the centre of town for another 4nights. We loved peaceful Karma Kayak so much that this time we stayed for 8 nights. It was just as special as we remember. Some of the staff have changed but they are equally friendly and efficient. The Dutch owners are very hands on and very friendly. The managers are happy to help and offer advice, and even cooked up a fish that my husband caught and it was absolutely delicious! The food is generally great, with the menu offering tasty tapas or main courses.
Snorkeling was superb, seeing turtles every few days as well as eels, beautiful box fish, angel fish, parrots, butterflies and trigger fish - all right off the beach out front. sunsets are not to be missed-magnificent! It really is a little piece of heaven.
It is located away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but it's well worth the 30minute walk. It feels like you have peace and quiet away from the crowds.
Rooms are clean, big and adequate, although some new pillows would be nice. Air-conditioning is a must, and the cold shower welcome after a day in the sun or sitting at the new pool.
We can't recommend Karma Kayak enough. If relaxation is what you're after, you will find it here!
We will be back!
