“Amazing hidden paradise in Seminyak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We stayed at Blue Karma for 4 nights commencing on 19th November. The first 4 nights of a 9 night Bali Honeymoon. Our villa name was Sesame and in a word it was amazing. Amazing from the time we where picked up from the airport by the hotel driver to check in right through to checkout. Our room was spacious and luxurious whilst also having unique Bali attributes like the Outdoor bathroom and detailed stone carvings everywhere. The facilities and gardens at Blue Karma truly set the scene for what you are about to experience during your time. The staff are very friendly and nothing is ever to difficult for them. The complimentary breakfast is simple yet tastes incredible. The only baffling thing we encountered during our time at Blue Karma was just how unknown it is within the streets of Seminyak. Almost every taxi driver we had during our 4 days there had no idea where it was and had never heard of it. Fortunately it is about a 5 minute walk on the same road as the Bintang Supermarket which all taxi drivers know the whereabouts of. Overall ranking 10/10. Definitely will be back again one day.

Really happy with our choice of hotel in Seminyak. It is about 15 minutes walk to the beach but the hotel offers a free shuttle. IT is a small boutique hotel with very friendly staff, beautiful gardens, art work and pool area. The rooms are very comfortable with a small private verandah decorated in a very artistic style. Be careful if you are upstairs and stairs can be quite slippery when wet. Internet was a little slow, but apart from that we were totally happy with Blue Karma and can't wait to go back.

Hi Tracey, Thanks for amazing feedback and look forward to your return so you can sample more of our facilities like the spa. We are looking into the internet and working with our providers in finding the best consistent connection which is at times difficult in Bali. We assure you to pass these comments to our team and see you soon

This was my favorite hotel I have ever stayed at. The rooms were spectacular. The staff was so friendly and helpful, they will go out of their way to help you with anything you need. I recommend purchasing any tours or rentals of any kind through the hotel. It is both less expensive and convenient and comes without the feeling of being hustled by someone. The free breakfast every morning was delicious. It was a relatively easy walk to the ocean (about 15 minutes or a 5 minute scooter ride). However, not ocean front if that is what you're looking for. I honestly do not know how the price is relative to other hotels in the area but you pay about the same price here in San Francisco for a a dirtbag, roach infested hotel in the tenderloin. Truly a great experience and if I go back to Seminyak please believe I will be staying here.

Room Tip: Splurge and get one of the rooms with your own private pool.

We stayed at the Blue Karma for our honeymoon. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and always willing to help.

The pool at Blue Karma is beautiful - just what you need when returning from being out in the heat. Sunloungers were always available and towels provided.

We room we stayed in was 'Ginger' - the room was large and we enjoyed the fun of having an outdoor bathroom. The shower wasn't all that powerful however but we liked the double sinks, the day bed and being able to see the sky whilst having a shower.

The room itself was ok, air conditioning not powerful enough for Bali and there was no chair or mirror at the dressing table which would have been useful. We could also have done with a bigger wardrobe. There was some noise at night from mopeds, cockerels and cats but I think that is probably to be expected all over Seminyak.

Breakfast each morning was acceptable - not the variety you might expect from a 4 star place but ok nonetheless. The pancakes were the best :)

We enjoyed the spa and the complimentary massage - so much that we went back and booked a full one hour massage each as well. The spa itself is clean and relaxing and with a good range of treatments.

We enjoyed Bali - the sunsets are amazing and the beach at Seminyak was huge. However if you want white sand go to Sanur or Nusa Dua. If you want a great meal, to to Sangria in Seminyak - delicious!!

Great little boutique hotel only about 20 meters from Jl Seminyak and close to plenty of shops and bintang supermarket. Stayed for 8 nights in the Musc room without a private pool. The main pool was amazing so didn't bother us at all. Staff are all lovely and room was amazing and clean.Overall beautiful hotel will stay again next time for sure.
