I wish we had been able to stay forever! The staff were so kind and accomodating, and clearly love their jobs and their patrons. The rooms were clean and light, with a big verandah and day bed. With a private beach, plenty of beanbags and sun lounges, this was the perfect spot away from the crowds to relax and enjoy... More

We liked the location of this resort on the north side of the island. It is quiet and a great place to watch the sunset. I would recommend renting bikes (something that I think a lot of other hotels provide for free). The actual hotel was just okay. The breakfast was probably one of the worst I've had. All three...

We had a tapas dinner and the food was very good. Six tapas between two of us was just right, and great banana pancakes! The tables are set out on the beach and we had a perfect view of the sunset behind a distant mountain. And you can dip your toes in the sea between courses. Very tranquil! The staff... More

Best place we found for food and sunset watching. We were pleasantly surprised by the service of one young lad by the name of Are ( I hope I spelled his name correctly, sorry if I didn't Are) he was very friendly and commented that he liked his job very much. I can see why. This place was lovely. Great... More

I was travelling Gili T. with my girlfriend. We stayed here for 5 days and can only recommend it to everybody who wants to unwind from the routine and just relax. There is not much to add to the other reviews here, except for the provided possibility to use "water shoes" for free as to cross the rocky riff in... More

We enjoyed the tapas as well as the beautiful sunset and loved the picture-perfect setting on the beach. However, the tapas are a little small so we ordered some more 😉. Great choice of very, very delicious tapas. Furthermore, The staff is extremely friendly. We loved it!

We stayed at Karma Kayak for 6 nights in August 2016 and very much enjoyed our stay there. This part of the island is quieter than the "main" part further round to the east. The staff are very friendly and helpful and all our transport was organised by the manager which made it very easy to get to and from... More

Food was really good. One of the best we had during the stay. Tapas are somewhat pricey compared to a regular dish, but you can try different things without doubts. All is nice and clean, staff is friendly and quick.

We loved the tapas meal. So tasty and great spice. The sangria was so lovely and fruity. Portions are small especially the baba ghanoush so perhaps a little more would be appreciated. The chicken satay was moist and the peanut sauce to delectable ! Would love to go back.

Karma Kayak is located on a great part of the island. Being up the top means it is well away from the craziness of the main part of Gili T and is also great for viewing the sunset. Breakfast on the beach each day was great, as was a drink in the evening om a bean bag watching or waiting... More
