“Couldn't get any better than this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

This petite-sized villa is the perfect nest for couples who's looking for a calm and serene setting to spend their holiday in. With only 10 rooms and a short 15m swimming pool as the central attraction, this place is quiet and intimate. The staff are very friendly, helpful and patient with our silly requests. The major highlight here is the opportunity to float in pool under the lush canopy of poolside trees lit by romantic lanterns while being serenaded to ephemeral Balinese music. The ambience is sublime. The only thing to bear in mind is to avoid the western or soup options for breakfast. Trust the Indonesians to make what they make best - go for the Mie or Nasi Goreng.

Fantastic little boutique hotel! Everyone is very helpful, thoughtful and friendly, all the services provided are wonderful! The best Spa tip ever, breakfast in the room or by the relaxing pool, surrounded by tropical scenery... Absolutely Approved!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are around the pool!

This accomodation is located away from the busy streets of Seminyak, though still in walking distance of shops, pubs and clubs . A walking trip to the beach will take you about 20 mins, or you can take a taxi of course. Uma Karan has only 10 rooms, with a beautiful and serene pool located in between. Actually, we choose this hotel because it is near the airport and we had to leave the next day. We really enjoyed our stay here: the room was neat and clean and we loved the pool. Personnel was nice and helpful and provided us with information and a small map to find our way in Seminyak. This accomodation has a strong and fast WiFi so you can tell your friends how great this place is... :-)

We had a very warm welcome at Uma Karan and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious, quite new and clean with proper shower and aircon. We loved the pool and the tranquil area to hang out in the evening. Although it's not in the center, you'll find enough places to shop and dine.

Everything is great except the location is a bit far (about 20 minutes to the central Seminyak). A tranquil, pleasant and homey hotel, with a nice tropical swimming pool, fresh breakfasts, very comfortable, spacious and well-designed hotel room. If you don't mind a bit walking and prefer quiet places like us, this is definitely your choice!

This hotel has only 10 rooms, a reception area, a swimming pool, and a small breakfast area. Located on the outskirts of seminyak. The hotel is fairly new and well maintained. The rooms are quite large and offer a sofa, TV, large bed, a fridge and a large bathroom with shower. Breakfast is served near the pool or in your room and is a bit basic. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free wifi works fine and due to the fact that there are only 10 rooms the complex has a very private feel. It's a 15/20 min walk to the center of Seminyak. A very pleasant stay!

The Uma Karan is a new hotel in Seminyak. Small and intimate, with an amazing pool. Staff incredibly friendly and accommodating. Slightly off the beaten track but still very close to the action.
Clean rooms with a great bed, you want for nothing.
Feels like you are staying in a villa. Great value for money.
