During our stay at Karma Reef my partner and I were extremely comfortable and greeted with the kindness of the lovely staff every day we were there. Anything we needed or requested was taken seriously and helped during our stay. I had a dietary requirement that needed to be sorted with the chefs and they were always willing to accommodate...

The hotel was close to the port where many boats arrived to the island making the place very busy in front of the bungalows. The service had many failures and the price was way too expensive compared to the offer in the island. Hot water failed sometimes and at some point there was no water for the toilet at all....

We came for dinner here, lovely atmosphere and stunning setting! We sat on a table overlooking the sea. Initially was a little disappointed by the service (which is why I have given 4/5) as we seated ourselves and then had to ask for menus. However once different waitress took over our service it improved to a much better standard. Food...

This resort has the closest bungalows and tents to the beach on the entire Meno island with amazing sunrise views! The rooms are fairly new and pretty and overall the resort is well kept.

Absolutely loved our stay in the sea tent!! The staff were amazing, the location was perfect. The restaurant was a bit over priced, the food was lovely but expensive. Definitely recommend the sea tent although when it's really hot the tent is warm.

Stayed 5 nights - 3rd time we've stayed at this resort. Unfortunately Mother Nature took its toll a couple of months before, eroding the beach in front of the resort hopefully all the sand will be back soon! The bungalows are basic but that's how we like it! The views are amazing particularly sunrise over Mt Rinjani. Nothing to do...

Lovely place to stay on the island, and in a great location, although very expensive and food overpriced compared to many other places on the island. Would still recommend as the bungalows are very nice.

The hotel complex is situated long the beach but every boat coming to Gili Meno is putting the tourists on the karma reef beach. So it is the harbor and it is a continuously busy with tourist just in front of the bungalows. Sometimes even stopping on the stairs of the bungalow or on the private platform. So no privacy...

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
