The place is wonderful - friendly stuff, nice location and food. The only "minus" is that the beach is crowded with boats after 5 pm. Recommended for backpackers and tight budget travelers. I'd rate it quality/price as 8/10. Check dates for bungalows in advance, because you can get the higher price for bigger bungalows.

The bungalow I stayed in was big enough for 6 persons. It is good for relaxation. The sorroundings were quiet. And It means no nightlife activities if you're looking for it. You can go snorkelings right in front of the bungalow. I don't have to swim too far from the beach, the colorful fishes is just all around you.

We ended up staying here for a week because we simply loved it! The bungalows are simple but comfortable with stylish outdoor bathroom. We were literally 5 steps from the beach with beautiful black sand and great snorkeling. Good Karma has a beach for itself not sharing it with other hotels, this is great. The breakfast consists of 2 meals... More

I absolutely loved staying here after Seminyak and how busy it is down that end. This was more like the Bali I remember from 30 years ago. Staff nice, little house - perfect, snorkelling great, sunrise and sunset wonderful. Even my 20 year old son absolutely loved it here - will definitely go back and stay longer next time. 2... More

I stayed in Good Karma Bungalows by myself in one of the big bungalows for 6 nights in the beggining of May 2014. The Bungalow was very nice, nice bathroom and shower. I learned by the end of my stay that there were cheaper bedroom, especially because I was alone. But, I think they weren't available when I arrived. The... More

The local friend recommended us to stay in Good Karma and I am so happy we listened to him. It is definitely the cosiest, calmest, nicest place in Amed. We took a bungalow for 4 people with a view to the beach and literally 3 steps from the water. It is also one of the best place for snorkelling, especially... More

Cute and funky little bungalows with lots of charm and privacy. The staff is beyond accommodating, especially a beautiful young woman named Made who made us feel so welcome. It's a fun place to go out snorkeling, explore the coast or (like us) get rained in for a couple days and just enjoy great company and good food. Highly recommended!

These rustic but spacious bungalows right on the beach allow you to lay on your daybed on the verandah and watch the waves, fishing boats and relax. Walk out into the water and you have lovely tropical fish to see with a snorkel. Each morning a piping hot thermos of water and teapot is delivered to your door. The restaurant... More
