Very relaxing place to stay. Clean, comfortable rooms, nice grounds, good pool, excellent restaurant, friendly staff, convenient location and all very efficiently run. Had a bit of a mix up over the bill at the end but all sorted out in teh end.

I travelled Tobago on business and we stayed at kariwak. Must say that the service is great! At the restaurant the staff are so warm and inviting. The meals are absolutely delish! It's located within walking distance of the airport so it adds to the non-hassle of getting transportation to the village. The downside is the wireless Internet access. For business persons like myself it's an inconvenience if I have to read and respond to emails. I have to sit outside of my room in order to get a good signal. In closing, I recommend this place. It is indeed a lovely spot.

my second stay at kariwak was just as great as the first, great service, the rooms are clean and grounds are well manicured, housekeeping visit rooms daily and all the staff are exceptionally friendly and yet still professional, if you're looking for a relaxing stay this is the place.
Kariwak is walking distance from the airport, Store Bay beach and Fort Milford.
I look forward to visiting kariwak soon.

Arriving from Luxembourg and staying at the Kariwak was truly a beautiful experience. Rooms and bathrooms were exceptionally clean. Housekeeping changed towels and toiletries on a daily basis. Housekeeping was also extremely friendly and trusting. Ambiance and surrounding area was well kept and clean. All staff were very friendly and service was above expectation. Each night the food was amazingly delicious. They seem to have a true understanding of local cuisine, especially since the healthy food was made using fresh herbs from the surrounding gardens. Breakfast was also wonderful, especially with the birds chirping in the back ground. Price too was affordable. Location also created a great stay as the hotel is 5min walking from the beach, airport, nightlife and other beautiful restaurants. Truly and amazing stay.

Room Tip: Stay closer to the jacuzzi, the view is very scenic.

Checked in on the 27th Aug, in need of some rest and a recharge. I had 4 days of peace and quiet, a rejuvinating and relaxing massage from Anthony, pool time and lots of sleep. All of the water is filtered and ozonated, you notice a difference in your skin within a day of consuming and bathing in it. It was a nice break from all things electronic. Kariwak is one of the few places I travel to, where it is clean enough to walk barefooted... everywhere! Cynthia and her team are true exemplars of customer service and caribbean hosoitality - if you have special needs, allergies, a request - they are always eager to assist. My home away from home in Tobago.
If you do go, try out the hammocks and waterfall Jacuzzi.
Many of the restaurants have gone out of business, Kariwak is really the only good / healthy eating place, many items are home grown at Kariwak. You can’t book online, call way in advance, Kariwak is booked months in advance.

We stayed at Kariwak for the fourth time and was not disappointed. This hotel's ambience is truly wonderful and very serene. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel staff are very friendly and the service is great. The food was very delicious and the breakfast was quite a treat. I really enjoyed the Kariwak spice tea and the yogurt with honey for breakfast. The great thing about their food is that it's quite healthy and made using fresh herbs. I must say that I've stayed at Kariwak over the last 20 years and the hotel has really maintained it's standards and even improved. I will definitely be staying here again in the future.

We last were at the Kariwak Village 27 years ago. And I can say (poitively!) it hasn't changed much at all. The rooms are soundproof, clean, and situated in a semi-cirlcle around the pool. The only change I noted from 27 years ago was that the palm trees had now grown up a great deal!
The bird life is quite spectacular here, in that the Hotel is surrounded by lush gardens. They have added a new section complete with a very nice waterfall jacuzzi at the end of the property. The water at the waterfall is much cooler than the pool - and by that I mean refreshing.
The restaurant is still very good. However these days there is a great deal of choice in dining around Crown Point. Unlike twenty seven years ago you can get very good food at other close by restaurants.
Staff is friendly and go the extra mile with service.
