Karma Reef offers barefoot luxury on Gili Meno
The latest resort from luxury lifestyle and resort developer Karma Group is designed to offer sanctuary a world away from the noise and demands of everyday life on the Indonesian island paradise of Gili Meno.
Guests at Karma Reef enjoy exclusive access to a secret beach, where they can indulge in blissful spa treatments, feast on freshly caught seafood, or kick back with a cocktail before strolling barefoot to their beautiful beachfront bungalow or luxurious glamping tent.
An ode to authentic, sustainable architecture that is consciously designed to leave the lightest possible footprint on the environment, all of Karma Reef’s beachfront lumbung-style bungalows are stylishly appointed with comfort in mind.
Perfect for couples and families, each two-storey bungalow features rustic stone and tropical hardwoods, contemporary furnishings, and an upstairs air-conditioned double bedroom with a private balcony overlooking clear, turquoise waters. Ten metres away, guests have the Indian Ocean at their beck and call, inviting them to explore the island’s world-class coral reef, teeming with colorful tropical fish and curious green sea turtles.
Guests can indulge in a leisurely grazing lunch or romantic dinner at Karma Beach Gili Meno’s restaurant where Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, wood-fired pizzas and succulent tapas-style dishes as well as seductive signature cocktails, custom designed by internationally renowned mixologist Grant Collins, complement captivating ocean views. Bicycles and non-motorized water sports are free for guests to enjoy at their leisure.
Each of Karma Reef’s one-bedroom seafront bungalows offers guests a stunning and unique ambiance, perfect for an unforgettable holiday on Gili Meno’s less-travelled, white sandy coastline.
Elegant sasak motifs, bamboo accents and alang-alang thatched roofs honour the region’s traditional sense of design in the ample interiors, while on the first level, guests can enjoy a cozy and comfortable living room-lounge area, with a well-stocked minibar, unlimited mineral water and tea or coffee. A flat screen television, cable TV and a DVD player are on offer for in-room entertainment.
A second level master bedroom features vaulted ceilings, a king size bed, silk mosquito netting and a private balcony with views looking out towards Mount Rinjani on Lombok island.
Guests can also enjoy a taste of barefoot luxury on the beach in one of Karma Reef’s one-bedroom sea view or seafront tents, with spacious interiors and enjoying all the benefits of Gili Meno’s stunning natural beauty paired with Karma’s heavenly creature comforts. There’s a plush king-size bed, air conditioning or fan cool, en-suite bathroom with hot water rain shower, wooden floors throughout, private open-air terrace with ocean views, and a unique ambiance that is exclusive to Karma Reef.
Karma Reef’s breezy Sea Spa offers holistic therapies, massage curatives and personalised experiences to the natural sound of lapping waves. Karma’s spa team of bodyworkers train under the guidance of certified massage experts, health practitioners and healers and deliver deeply therapeutic experiences. Karma’s treatments are curated from ingredients sourced from ethical and sustainable farmers and growers. All treatments are performed slowly to ease guests into a state of deep healing.
Karma Reef is located within a convenient fast boat ride of Bali, Lombok and the Gili Islands. Several boat companies operate from various ports in Bali and provide transfers from hotels to the harbour. Karma can organise transfers from Karma Jimbaran or Karma Kandara as well as fast boat tickets.
Karma Reef has been undergoing renovations since the earthquake that struck in August 2018 and will reopen before Nyepi, on 4 March 2019 with a brand new Karma Beach restaurant accompanied by Tiki Bar, a beautiful Karma Spa Tent, one-bedroom seafront and sea view tents and one-bedroom seafront bungalows.
