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...

Had an absolute gorgeous time at Karma Kayak. The food was delicious, the staff was great, the location was absolutely stunning. All this and the effort that was put in by the staff made our stay perfect. We stayed on the island for a week and only stumbled upon Karma Kayak on one of our last days on the island....

Stayed in Karma Kayak for 7 nights. We had an amazing time. The location is absolutely superb. As well as the friendly hardworking staff. Always with a smile. The ample breakfast was delicious every time. Fruit salad, fruit juice, coffee as much as you would like and delicious pancakes. I do not recognize the complaint in another review about the...

Whilst staying on the northern side of Gili T we stopped in here for breakfast. Wasn't too bad. Had fresh pineapple pancakes and a fresh papaya juice. Was yummy and good size. Nice service from the staff. Also its right on the beach and you cant beat that! What a view.

We stayed for 3 nights in May and the villas themselves were lovely although a few minor hiccups here and there. We were not provided a fridge in our room which we believe is a must as it is so hot. The air con worked great! we definitely couldn't complain except for when it's freezing in the middle of the...

This is a great little cafe/bungalow spot. It is owned by a Dutch couple, and serves amazing tapas. The sangria was perfect, and it's facing the side of the island where the sun sets, so it's wonderful to sit and dream the day away. The bungalows are clean and well organized - Can't wait to go back.
