We stayed her last December. There are more pros then cons when we stayed. CONS: 1, No beach hence the name change from Karma Beach to Karma Reef. 2, Sunbeds placed next to the road so you head is a foot away from the local traffic of horse and carts and people. 3, Situated next to the main boat terminal...

We spent six night atthe Karma Reef and highly recommend the resort. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff are really friendly and helpful. It's a great location, being opposite where the boats land and close to many excellent resturants. We'll definitely be recommending this location to others travelling to Bali.

We stopped for dinner purely based on how nice the resort looked, The resort itself looks absolutely incredible however the food isn't up to a right lot and it cost more than similar places on Gili M. Neither here nor there, don't really know what more to say. I mean the food isn't bad it's just not very good, Everything... More

So nice to go to a small upmarket resort. Arturo the manager greeted us on arrival. The ground/housekeeping staff were great (special mention to Ketut 😊), the bar and waiting staff were excellent and professional but great kudos to the chef Wayan!!

The location is great for sunrise (for those who look for sunset, the island is small and we can have a drink on a beach west side) and near dive centers and stores. The architecture and design of houses are certainly the most harmonious and elegant in Gili meno. Rooms are very comfortable. Beach is small but there are many... More

I have been there two times, and I recommend it to my friends when they have visited the area too. It is kind of the only nice lounge bar/restaurant with a very nice customer service around Gili Meno, There are limited options (therefore the chilled vibe of the island ) so if you are aiming to enjoy a super relax...

Superb restaurant with nice grilled seafood. It's a little pricy compared to the other cafes Ali v the beach. But for the price you will get better cutlery and real napkins (not paper) highly recommended if u are tired of casual island life on meno. Service staff could be more well trained

They have added tented accomodation that would suit many people including those less able to manage stairs.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Karma Reef at Gili Meno offers an unforgettable vacation experience. Everyone should experience life on a tropical island at least once in their lifetime - where there is nothing to do but eat, drink, sleep, read, walk, swim, snorkel and relax. No hassles, no motor cars, no telephone (except in an emergency) and far from the tourist hordes. Throw in endless stretches of white sandy beaches, one of the world's most beautiful coral reefs, and magnificent sunrises and sunsets, and you have "paradise." If this sounds like a holiday that appeals to you then the Royal Reef Resort on Gili Meno is the place to go. Just getting there is a memorable holiday experience in itself. Located northwest of the Indonesian island of Lombok, Gili Meno is reached by sea or air from Jakarta or Bali. On arrival at Mataram airport in Lombok the choice is yours as to whether you want to take the drive along the spectacular coastline, or to go up and over the mountain through the monkey forest, then back down to Bangsal harbour for the 30 minute boat crossing to the sandy white beaches of Gili Meno. ... more   less
