On the website they say that you get special prices for direct bookings. In reality, however, the prices are higher. You have to pay 50% in advance, that you never get back. And if you even ask for refund, you will be you roughly insulted by staff and owner.

ordering the tapas menu (squid vinegarat, garlic snails, tapenade@mash black olive) pair with roasted bread@dark & light bread (good way in pairing the tapas). the taste is perfect (good service, good setups & good food). my partner drink with local beer (Large bottle of Bintang Beer). Me myself ordering sharwarma (marinated chicken with vegi etc wrap with a soft pita bread), they pair with nice gravy to enhance the taste. Superbbb with my jar of plain water. Highly recommend this place as to stay and for restaurant.

My partner and I came to stay here end of January/ early February on the first part of South East Asia trip. We are currently one month in and Karma Kayak still holds first place! Everything from the food, to the clean and freshly decorated rooms and the staff were truly wonderful. Gili T is a beautiful island, but Karma Kayak is really something special. The breakfast was delish (fully recommend piña colada overnight oats and scrambled tofu). Going for a swim/snorkel afterwards (literally straight outside where the hotel is) and viewing the colourful coral and turtles really made the morning. The staff were so helpful and always had a smile! My partner and I had “holiday brain” and tampered with the safe, but someone was there to fix it quickly. The icing on the cake was the free filtered water bottle refills! Lastly, the soft blue and beachy/ocean themed room was so relaxing and something lovely to come back to after a long day of exploring. The bed was comfy and air conditioning worked perfectly. If we’re ever in that neck of the woods again, we will definitely come and stay again! Keep up the great work!
