“Bravo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

If there is a more spectacular location and a more beautiful beach in Bali I want to know where it is??!!

I had the privilege of staying at Karma Kandara to celebrate my friend's 50th Birthday and what a three days it was. Three superb events at three equally delicious locations - di Mare for welcome cocktail function, Nammos Beach Bar for the all bells and whistles beach party including the most fabulous entertainment imaginable, and Sunday's chillax recovery poolside BBQ!!! The world class cuisine and faultless service all just added to what has now become for me at least one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

As a special event location I can not recommend Karma Kandara more highly.

The best beach of Bali with an environment glamhippy chic, with good music, chill and relaxing ambient and perfect mixed crowded The infinity pool on the top has amazing vies all over the ocean and the restaurant does not have waste, we gave to ourselves a masage in the spa with the ocean views, the briezze, and the profesionality...you should get the experince!like in a paradise!The service fabulose , and the villas very good value for their prices. Karma Kandara is a destiny itself!

Karma Kandara's impressive reputation is fully deserved, beautiful location, excellent facilities, wonderfully attentive staff and perfect for a quiet weekend with either a young family or group of friends.

Would not hesitate to recommend Karma Kandara to anyone, for both business or pleasure.

My partner and I first came to stay at Karma Kandara in March 2008, for the grand opening which was amazing. The resort is built in Mediterranean-style and is perched on the cliff-top, overlooking the majestic blue ocean below. Each villa is absolutely stunning, and no two are exactly alike. We enjoyed our stay in 2008 so much that we have since come back to Karma Kandara twice already – once in October 2009; and also in January of this year. Each of our stays have been absolutely fantastic and we would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a holiday with that extra touch of luxury that you cannot find in most places.
Dinner at Di Mare Restaurant – overlooking the Indian Ocean (oh - and with such a dramatically beautiful view!) has never disappointed. Serving a world-class delicious Mediterranean-inspired cuisine with a huge selection of fantastic wines to match, the members of staff are all fantastic and attentive, and we have recommended this wonderful place to all of our friends. I cannot also stress enough how wonderful their spa is. Getting a massage while seeing the vista of the ocean below you is an experience not to be missed.
We spent most of our days lazing down by the private beach which can be reached via a sort of vertical cable-car that takes you down the steep hill to the beach which is at the foot of the cliff. You can, of course, make your own way down via steps – although this was way too much of an effort for us (there are 360 steps so quite a trek – especially coming back up!). Nammos - the beach restaurant – is also of world-class, serving everything from tasty beach-snacks to delicious lunches and also dinners, all the while a DJ spins cool chill-out music – creating a wonderful ambience. We found that we just wanted to stay there and let the usual worries of life slip through our fingers - like the perfect white sand on the beach. We quite often came for lunch, and stayed to watch the amazing sunsets that never fail to amaze.
The concept here at Karma Kandara (and for that matter - any of the Karma Resorts) is that – if you are travelling as a family, or for a group of friends - instead of renting umpteen rooms in an anonymous hotel, you can rent a gorgeous 3 or 4-bedroomed villa with a fully equipped kitchen and a private swimming-pool, all enclosed in your own private compound, for quite a reasonable sum. And with full hotel service facilities - you can still order room-service and have all your usual hotel-luxuries (your villa is cleaned every day, as is the pool) - everything was done for us, all we had to do was sit back and chill! My partner and I have absolutely loved each of our stays here, and would recommend this slice of Heaven to anyone who wishes to enjoy true peace and tranquility, but with the added luxuries that most places aren’t able to offer at the same time. The villas, the food, the staff – they are all absolutely world-class fantastic, and we will come back many more times in the future.

Absolutely stellar service on all fronts including the bars, restaurants, spa, room service and housekeeping. Grounds are immaculately kept and the ocean views are breathtaking. Each unit having it's own zero-edge pool with great view is magnificent.

Karma Kandara is a fantastic place for sunset drinks and tapas. Don't miss Nammos Beach Club for their great pizzas and my favorite cocktail Vanilla Passion - tasty and potent.
10 out of 10 and a must next time your in Bali!

Even if you’re not staying at Karma a visit to Nammos is highly recommended. The combination of spectacular locale, music that matches the setting, amazing food and our ‘tasty and potent’ cocktails, plus the sun setting over the Indian Ocean definitely makes Nammos the place to be at sunset! Thanks for the comments.

Yours Sincerely,
Karma Resorts Management
