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...

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...

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...

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...

This place is amazing! It is located on the north side of the island and is much quieter than the party side. We loved it! The pool looked very inviting, but we couldn't tear ourselves away from the beach. We ate, read, drank and relaxed at the beach. There were tables, trees and loungers and it was always easy to...

We had a lovely tapas meal at Karma Kayak, the food, setting and staff were all excellent. The lanterns in the trees and bean bags on the beach were a nice touch. We will definitely go there again, next time we visit Gili-trawangan.

We loved it! The beach is beautifully set up with bean bags, little huts and sun loungers and so. It was a little hot in the sun but the staff is always willing to put your lounger under a tree or set you up with an umbrella. We loved their food. Could not get enough and kept eating, trying everything...
