Kini and Kirana are amazing places to stay, eat and drink. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is incredible - all the produce is fresh and grown on-site metres from the restaurant and nearly everything is made in-house, from sourdough bread to kombucha.

Waking up inside a lodge made of bamboo entirely. With a private pool facing the ocean and precisely Yoyo’s wave. Was quite an exclusive and special feeling. Kini is tucked in rainforest jungle and the presence of the elements is very powerful, yet, it all feels safe and clean. Jungle vibes!!

My stay was average, but 5 stars for kak rezi and kak ewi (employees) who took care of me when I had to leave the island unexpectedly. Best part about the hotel is the superb restaurant food and private beach.
