“Too good for words. Loved every minute here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2010

Stayed 6 nights at Karma Jimbaran with 2 small children. From our initial greeting, to our sad farewell, the staff were always warm, generous and of course responsive. Service here was simply exceptional.

The key to the stay is always the accommodation and our villa was perfect. Strong simple design that worked, quality fixture and fittings and of course amazing garden and pool. We didnt feel the need to leave often...esp with twice daily cleaning.

Used many of the facilities at the resort, kids club was huge success with both children, gym well equipped and can recommend the 'bali' style massage. We take food seriously - were from Melbourne :-) and the coffee and food from the restaurant was always excellent.

Our big tip is the cooking class. After huge breakfast we were escorted with staff member Jeffrey and chef Stefan to the fish market at Jimbaran. Selected fish to our taste as well as fresh vegetables and spices. Fascinating experience. Back to the kitchen to prep the fish, and then finally a 2 hours class in our villa on cooking traditional balinese cuisine. Six courses all up, which we ate as the kitchen was being cleaned!. Incredible value and experience.

Hope to be back again and again....

Cheers for your enthusiastic comments, JohnLiz. We are very proud of our well trained and ‘exceptional’ staff and will let them know about your kind words regarding their service during your stay. Excellent tip about our cooking class too. It’s a truly unique opportunity to check out, hands on, how we source, prepare and serve up traditional Balinese cuisine. We are especially fortunate to be located near Jimbaran Bay, one of the island’s most bustling fish markets. Glad you were able to make this a special part of your trip and we hope to see you back again…and again…and again!

Yours Sincerely,
Karma Resorts Management

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2010

We stayed at the Karma Jimbaran Resort on Bali from 13-20 November, 2010, and let us say that it was absolutely fantastic. We had a one bedroom villa, enclosed by a surrounding wall and with our very own pool. The setting of the resort and villas and the atmosphere were all that anyone could hope for. The villa was complete in all ways. The outside Balinese Shower was an extra amazing touch. The resort restaurant was excellent and Jimbaran Bay with its calm sandy beach was only 25 meters away - a short walk across the street. The resort staff was outstanding and if we wished, we could lay by our pool all day long and see or hear no one and nothing but the birds and butterflies that came for a visit. An easy 20 minute ride got us to Uluwatu Temple and the airport, a 250 meter beach walk got us to the freshest seafood around!! The resort had accommodations ranging from one bedroom to 4 bedrooms; each and every one was unique and simply exquisite!! We have plans to return again late next year.

We appreciate your glowing feedback, BeachBumBill! Thanks for taking a moment to share your experiences at Karma Jimbaran with us. It’s true that we are located very practically to several attractions such as world-famous Jimbaran beach and bay with for its seafood BBQ, the spectacular Uluwatu Temple (and the must see Kecak Dance), and of course our sister resort Karma Kandara with it’s stunning views and delicious cuisine options. That is, of course, if you’re able to drag yourself from your villa pool! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. We would like to encourage you to please post your 'Karma Experiences' and your photos with us on our FaceBook Fan Page - http://www.facebook.com/karma.resorts.group

Room was full of mosquitoes when we got there. No minibar in room . Very small tv, with bad sound and wobbly vision. Bathroom large with one hook and one towelrail.Nowewhere to hang our wet bathers. Only one towel per person per day. Use your handtowels for the floor as lots of wet spots. Lots of dripping water from the ceiling, must be the aircon ducts, even on the bed. Not a new problem as the mosquito net has lots of brown spots on it. Did not sleep well, apart from the generators humming all night long, the staff arrive from 6.30am on their noisy mopeds. No do not disturb signs, and as the staff arrived at 8.30am, one knock and they put the key in the lock becomes annoying and embarrassing. The bed is three feet from the door. Phone calls looking for other guests at 7.50am ,one morning at 5.45am. Went to bed 11.00pm one night and saw the clean sheets had a very large stain on it, my husband referred to it as a rust stain.It was definitely not rust. Too late to ring, and threw a damp towel on it. Most upsetting. The private pool as not serviced very well. For 2 days too dirty to swim in it. After the rain the staff dont wipe down the pool chairs, or put the cusions on, as well as no pool towels are provided. You have to ring. If they remove them they dont replace them. The restaurant charges a delivery charge for room service, even if the restaurant is closed for a private function. Dont order the organic salad with tomatoes, feta, artichokes, semisundried toms, asparagus and avocados. You get sliced iceberg lettuce with 3 cherry toms and a small bit of avo. The wagyu beef burger is good, and the massage at the spa is expensive but fantastic. All round a beautiful landscaped property, but not a 5 star in our villa. We did not enjoy it, nor had a relaxing holiday. Never complained before, but this was just neverending, the water dripping on our bed was the final straw. The staff did not do the normal "how was your stay" when we paid the bill, maybe they knew villa 8 is a major issue. We looked forward in staying there, but up to now not even an email from the manager to apologise for our comments. He was away for the weekend when we left, and the front desk sent a worker in overalls to come and see what theproblem is.This is from the worlds leading boutique hotel, or so they claim.

As members of the Royal Resorts we stayed at the Karma Jimbaran during June 2010 as part of our timeshare exchange. Hospitality and service was exceptional. We loved Bali so much we have already booked for next year and next time we will explore Bali a bit more as we couldn't tear ourselves away from the villa or Jimbaran Beach. Most days on the beach we ate at the Bamboo warung. There are no downsides to Bali except it is way too far from the UK!! Can't wait to get back to Karma Jimbaran.

Very friendly and good service. My main gripe was the musty smell in the 2 bedrooms downstairs and the mouldy pillows. Also, the airconditioning system in our villa was not adequate. Despite having tthe maintenance guys look at it it was still very hot in the living area. Great Kids Club.

This was the best accommodation we have ever experienced. We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa for a week. The service provided by all staff was sensational - everyone was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were immaculate - and serviced twice daily !!!!! The location was close to Jimbaran Bay and the famous Seafood dinners on the beach. Amenities were great including our private pool in the villa, the restaurant and the "Kids Club". We highly recommend this if you would like a little luxury as part of your holiday experience.
