If you're looking for a basic beach hut place with a carribean Feeling, Kanawa is the right place. Very nice housereef, but also guided snorkelling tours to other places offered. Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

I spent 2 nights and three days at Kanawa in September of 2014. This is definitely one of my favorite places in all of Indonesia. I flew from Denpasar to Labuanbajo and booked accommodation in Kanawa from a local travel agency. Advance booking is highly recommended but I was lucky enough to book two nights on the spot. The terrain...

18 months ago my girlfriend and I stepped foot on Kanawa for the first time. 18 months ago this simple little island stole our hearts and became my favourite place on earth. So much so that I planned a wedding there, 50 guests, white sandy beaches, life, love and simplicity, it would have been perfect. Having loved Kanawa so much...

This is a great place for snorkelling, but there are many similar places as good. The resort looks very inviting, but was closed or at least empty when we visited. Great to spend a few hours on your way to Komodo

Extremely charming island. The perfect place to do nothing, just chillout, snorkling (event from the beach or jetty), eating (they have quite good food and what was suprising tasty pizza) but if you want you can olso socilizing with other people (despite a few tourists staying on island at the same time). This is good base for snorkling or diving...

MUST BE STOPPED FROM DOING BUSINESS. PLEASE READ THE WHOLE REVIEW. Unfortunately/unusually we did not check TripAdvisor before making a snap decision to stay overnight at Kanawa Resort after a boat cruise around Rinca and Komodo. We paid 3.2million Rupiah for 2 bungalows (family of 5) which is US$240...which is super expensive for this part of the world. We assumed...
