Newly renovated Karma Reef brings the charm of the Maldives to Indonesia. A ‘no news, no shoes’ escape on the east coast of Gili Meno, this secluded sanctuary is a haven of exotic barefoot luxury. The secret, private beach promises indulgent white-sand relaxation, while one of the region’s best coral reefs sits just offshore. Here, snorkelling equipment, kayaks and paddleboards are always up for grabs, while free bikes give you the chance to see more of the island at leisure.
There’s no pool here, but trust us when we say you won’t miss it. Instead, its the ocean that's always at your beck and call. There’s a gorgeous sea spa tent, set right on the sand, and a new addition of the Karma Beach, Gili Meno restaurant – both laid-back and sandy-floored, this is beachside dining with a difference. Beyond the Mediterranean menus and Asian-fused favourites, there’s also local dishes, wood-fired pizzas, and succulent seafood barbecues to enjoy. For the utmost in private dining, have breakfast in your tent or bungalow or request a romantic candlelit dinner right under the stars.
Epitomising beachfront relaxation, rooms here are either beach bungalows or safari-style glamping tents. All rooms include generous rain showers and plush king-size beds, plus a pair of personal sunbeds just metres from your room. Wake to the soothing sounds of the sea in your stylish One Bedroom Seaview Tent – a bohemian-chic retreat with wooden floors and a seaview terrace. Upgrade to a One Bedroom Seafront Bungalow for an oceanfront balcony and mezzanine-level bedroom.
