The food is the best i have had,herbs grown in their own gardens,all the desserts are homemade,along with the breakfast granola.The whole area is very relaxing,hamocks in the back garden to get an afternoon siesta and snooze,while listening to the birds,a private jacuzi is available too.Ignore any comments about the airport,it is not noisy at all,you dont notice it unless you want to.

My best friend and I stayed at Kariwak for a week between May 27 and June 3 and I cannot thank the proprietor and staff enough for the most wonderful week I have ever spent in Tobago. From the minute you walk across the bridge at the entrance you just feel a sense of calm.

Our Cabana was well furnished, clean and extremely comfortable. The surrounding gardens were beautifully maintained and the peace and tranquility was only broken by the sound of the wide variety of birds feasting on the fruits and flowers. Peace indeed.

The service was excellent, the food was wonderful and always freshly prepared - we were thoroughly spoilt and cannot wait to repeat the experience.

My wife and I stayed at Kariwak for a fortnight in February. I cannot remember a more friendly, accommodating and engaging staff, and we've visited hundreds of hotels.

This is paradise on earth. The accommodaytion is comfortable and rigorously cleaned. Possibly the bungalows are a little close together, but Kariwak seems to attract sensitive and upbeat people, so this was not a problem.

The grounds are wonderful, and the profusion of flora and fauna is spectacular. Never a problem ot find a tranquil spot to read in a hammock and drift off to sleep. The daily classes tke place in an idyllic setting, to the sound of trickling water and birdsong. The food in the hotel rightly has an international reputation and the setting and service are superb - and not expensive.

I was so sad to leave.

Located a mere 5 minute walk from the airport, the beach and a few of the shops, Kariwak is truly the oasis of the lively Crown Point area. Conceived and constructed in the early eighties, Kariwak is a family run establishment with a reputation for its unassuming flair and tranquil atmosphere.

Kariwak has carved a distinctive niche with its holistic approach to holidays allowing people around the world to retreat, recharge and renew.

With its intimate accommodations, exquisite food, revitalising holistic treatments, lush trpical gardens surrounding its world renowned thatched roof ajoupa, it is little wonder that the majority of guests are repeat visitors.

From just an idea born in the minds of Allan and Cynthia Clovis, Kariwak Village has become the gateway to an island rich in history, culture and natural landscapes. Kariwak Village really is .... where Tobago begins.
