“Stunning family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

We stayed for two nights in Villa 2 and it was beautiful. Everything was perfect from the gardens and paths, gorgeous villa with ocean views. Friendly staff who helped me organize a surprise wedding and an in house BBQ! We will never forget this place.

Room Tip: Villa 2 sleeps 8 (4 bedrooms) and has ocean views. Close to restaurant, main pool, cable car and spa...

Hi Bek

Our in-villa BBQ regularly receives rave reviews and it is great that you were able to enjoy this experience whilst you were here. It was a delightful pleasure to assist in organising your special occasion and to be part of this lasting memory for you both!

We (myself and my loving wife) planned to had a gala valentine's day in Bali, and karma kandara was our choice of resort. We reached there on 13th Feb night and since then till we left on 16th Feb was nothing but an amazing experience. Thanks to all the smiling faces (it doesn't matter who they are or what they do, they will always greet you with a loving smile and always ready to help).

They also assigned Ms. Donna, concierge personal, to us so that our stay can be as comfortable as it can get. I would like to thank Donna for her unusual support in making our experience with Karma a remarkable one. Specially, in arranging vegetarian meals (otherwise we would have died of hunger.) They asked their native chef to specifically arrange Veg. breakfast, lunch & Dinner for us and The Chef did not disappoint us.

There are so many good things i want to share, but can not due to spare and time constraints, but below is my rating for major point that will be helpful to other visitors:

1.) Villas Great 90%

2.) View from Villas, Club and Restaurants Perfect (Sea and pool view) 100%

3.) Service Can not be better than this 100%

4.) Assistance Great 99%

5.) Food Good (Not much Veg. choice) 80%

6.) Readiness to resolve issues Awesome 100%

Hope this will help you guys in planning your visit.
Regards Nitesh.

Room Tip: Villa 19 is good. But try to take Villas from 1 till 5 and you will get amazing beach view from hill...

Always heard wonderful of this villa, so we decided to spend our previous short vacation (february 12 to 14, 2013) at karma kandara.
First night we arrive, most of the lights are not working at the villa, so had to wait for four technicians to fix the lights until almost midnight time.
On our second evening, we didnt get any make-up room or let alone a turn-down service. This is after i put up the "please make up room" sign at the front door and informed the front desk to please clean our villa as we about to leave for ubud that day, and would like a tidy clean place after a long day. Had to wait 25mins for a buggy to take us to our villa this day also.

Absolutely beautiful villas, that were modern, clean and well appointed. Very friendly staff, especially Donna who made our stay so enjoyable. The views are incredible, especially if a storm blows through. The beach isn't huge, but it is in a fantastic setting. The surf is fun when the tide is low, but once it comes up over the reefs, it isn't safe for children due to a big rip current just off-shore. Only a couple of reasons I don't give it 5 stars: they charge almost US $100 for a roll away bed. I could see a $15 set up fee, but to charge for an extra bed when you are renting a multi-room villa is obnoxious, especially when the bed was for a child. Also, the di Mare restaurant could use some improvement. The beach side restaurant was very good, with fresh seafood and tasty pizzas, but di Mare fell short. It served a suitable breakfast menu, but we were disappointed by the limited menu for dinner. We had more options off the in-villa dining menu than at the restaurant. To make this a top tier resort, they need to revamp the dinner menu to offer a more interesting selection.

Dear Marc

Thank you for your feedback, we are continually working on our guest options to provide a level of service and choice that exceeds expectations and we are excited to have on-board our new Executive Chef who is curating a wide variety of new delectable options with wine pairings at both Nammos Kandara and di Mare which I am sure you will enjoy should you be able to visit us again!

As you know, the selection of 3 & 4 bedrooms is great for travelling groups and families with the charge of US$80 for an additional extra bed including our daily breakfast charge for additional guests to ensure that all members of the travelling group are able to enjoy.
Each of our restaurants consistently receives rave reviews so I apologize on behalf of the team if we didn’t meet your expectations on this occasion but with the introduction of our new Executive Chef we are confident you will enjoy should you wish to visit us again and we are currently in process of putting the finishing touches on our designs for a third restaurant at Karma Kandara to ensure there is a wider selection of dining options available to you.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Kind Regards

Outstanding grounds! Amazing employees, great food! We had the beach to ourself... Rough but so much fun! A definitely return! You will not be disappointed. The villas are self contained, and the private pool made the kids so happy.
