Had a short stay at the Karma. From the minute we walked in the service was fantastic. Very friendly and professional throughout the entire stay. The villa was beautiful and clean. Very well appointed even had a selection of quality wine glasses. The restaurants in the hotel were amazing. Fabulous food and service. Great place for families and couples.

A luxurious resort, with great facilities, including the spectacularly-sited spa, the Temple Lounge, the Di Mare restaurant with its excellent food, and the beach bar, which we used several times. It is remote, and transport is necessary to visit local shops and to see the main part of Bali, but a local driver charged us the equivalent of £50 for... More

We went to the Beach Club for the day but decided to leave after 2 hours. It's about $25AUD to spend the day here. Don't bother. You can only use the beach, you are not allowed access to the pool if you are not staying at the resort. Wish we had known this before we got there. The beach is... More

Dear Jane5432 Thank you for your review on our beach club and I am disappointed to read that you felt the beach was not worth recommending. The entrance fee paid (a common practice at most, if not all beach clubs in Bali) covers access to the beach (AUD$15) and then a credit of approximately (exchange rate based) AUD $ 10... More

It was the ideal retreat for us, the resort was such a lovely and peaceful place for a relaxing holiday. The place is beautifully landscaped and the views from the bar and restaurant were fantastic. We enjoyed walking the beach just before sunset as it was not so hot. We were in a three bedroom villa which is lovely and... More

Dear Peter W My sincere thanks for ranking our resort as “Wonderful” in your review. The monkeys whilst resident in the area and generally not an issue, have been known to help themselves to fruit and it is therefore advisable not to leave these “food offerings” lying around to tempt them.

Spent 4 days at Karma last week. 3 bedroom villa was perfect. The private pool was particularly nice for kids to enjoy. Food at the on resort restaurants was good and staff very friendly. Only thing to be mindful of is that the beach, while very scenic is not ideal for swimming given the many rocks. Otherwise great resort.

Dear Bartek M Thank you for your review and comments following your recent stay.

Karma Kandara is a very unique resort that I don't have proper words to describe it. This was our first visit to the resort since we upgraded to Karma partial ownership.
