I stayed at Karma Kayak for two nights. To put you in context, I had been staying at guesthouses, cheap hotel and did a few trek during my trip. ''Spending'' on accommodation during my month long trip in Indonesia wasn't my priority. My budget per night for 2 people was at around 25CA$. Being in the last stretch of my... More

Without a doubt, Karma Kayak is one of the best choices for accommodation on Gili Trawangan. Located a 20 minute walk (8 minute bike ride, 5 minute horse-cart taxi) from the ferry drop off beach and main town, this boutique resort escapes the "hustle and bustle" of the island. It's clear after checking in that people behind Karma Kayak are... More

This is a very good place to stay, when you don’t want to be in the middle of the bustle. Staff is very helpful and kind. There is a good price quality ratio. Rooms are clean and there is a mosquito net. The breakfast is good, not spectacular.

We stayed at Karma Kayak for 3 nights, and had a very nice time. The staff really make it, and Arie in particular made our stay most enjoyable! It was a perfect escape for the crazier strip of Gili T, and we loved the more peaceful vibe of this part of the island. The rooms are basic, but the bed... More

We stayed here for three nights in October. It is on the quiet side of Gili T which was nice and the beach just across the road. The room was basic but met our needs. We had issues with the shower draining and one power outage. The food is good but portions are very small. What really makes the place... More

We really liked our stay at Karma Kayak, rooms are clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. Staff are super friendly and helpful which we found very comforting. The location is great in a quieter part of the island which has brilliant snorkelling directly opposite where we were lucky enough to spot Sea Turtles. Food is also very good quality and... More

I am puzzled by the rave reviews of Karma Kayak given by some travelers and Lonely planet. We found it adequate but nothing special. The room was clean but small and very basic with a small bathroom. It has minimal light at night; if you want to read you'll need a flashlight. Beach towels are not provided, instead they give... More
