Great location and extremely well run. On the relaxed north coast, these guys go the extra mile to make your stay memorable. Clean and comfortable rooms, fantastic beach location and great food! Got it all!

Have been there with Family. Location is quite nice and relaxed, away from the east coast which is very busy. The small compound is well managed by the NL owners, quite friendly, this also applies to the local staff always keen to help. Breakfast on the beach, looking at the light coming on Bali summits is awesome. Food is nice...

We enjoyed so much our stay at Karma Kayak. the smiles, the rooms, the food and the location. The little bungalows are cute and simple, very clean, and make us feel at home. The beach in front, the gorgeous snorkelling, the relax set up... It is out of the centre, so much calmer. A very good location choice even if...

Very nice bungalows, perfect lcation to avoid both the everyday night fever and the very loud muezzin calls, very good service, nice beach (but as everywhere on Gili T you cannot walk barefoot-dead corals), beautiful sunsets, and a nice swimming pool. Only setback : the price... Just like Bali, Gili T is well overpriced, and Karma K is not an...

We had a fab time at Karma Kayak. Beautiful location, staff were really friendly and helpful, food was delicious (if portions a little small!) Karma Kayak was our first stop after a long flight, and we had decided to treat ourselves. (we're generally hostel/small b&b travellers) Karma Kayak was great value and the perfect place to relax on Gili T,...

Lovely location, friendly helpful staff. Excellent pool and lovely sunset viewed from beanbags on the beach. No problems taking a walk into town along the beach. Good variety of food from the Kayak kitchen, a very enjoyable stay!

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! We were scepticle about Gili T as a stop on our travels and decided to base ourselves away from the main drag. The north of the island is lovely, its about a 20-30 minute walk into the main area or you can hire a bike (there is only one part that...

I stayed at Karma Kayak July 2012 for about 4 days and I could not have hoped for a better experience. When I first arrived on Gili Trawangan K.K. was booked so I stayed just down the road for a couple of days until they had availability. Even while I was a guest at another property, I ate all of...

Great spot on the beach away from the bussle (& touting) of the port area. Open honest service & advice. Special sunsets. Lots to see & do despite the kayak trips not being available. Snorkelling was a dissapointment, but I have been spoilt by pristine trips on the Great barrier reef & Tonga. Overall very good value.

We booked an initial 4 nights and returned at the end of our trip for another week. The managers, Sandra and Noel try very hard to run a happy and efficient place in a challenging environment. They were very honest about the construction noise nearby (there is construction everywhere on the island!). The staff is very well trained and work...
