We stayed overnight at Karma Resort - Rottnest Lodge and had both breakfast and an evening meal in Riva. The menu was refreshingly different and we were very happy with our meals. Some of the best dishes we've eaten for some time. The staff are lovely. Caring and friendly. Recommended.

Spoiling my sister-in-law to a visit to Rottnest. We each had a 3 and a 1/4 pamper package in the spa. We then continued to chill out over dinner. Wonderful staff, the salmon entree was to die for and we both enjoyed the barramundi. Accompanied by bottle of WA Pinot gris. Couldn't have asked for more.

We ended up here as part of our day tour package. The service was really good which is always a bonus. The food was OK and did not really stand out. The dinner menu looks good and maybe this is the time to be there.

The atmosphere of the place is very relaxing and cozy, plus the buffet came with a wide choice of food: pasta, rice curry, steamed barramundi fish, veggies, fruits, desserts, etc. You can stay both inside and outside as there are plenty of tables available. We payed... More

Lovely ambience, fabulous food and great service. We had the buffet breakfasts each day and a dinner at night and the table service was excellent every time. The alfresco area next to the pool is lovely for breakfast or coffees during the day. A great place to relax.

The restaurant setting is very attractive, with the hotel pool nearby and an open air terrace adjacent to the wing that overlooks the pool (assuming you were willing to risk birds descending on your meal if you turned your back for even...
