Just finishing our stay in Karma Jimbaran. We chose Jimbaran because we wanted to stay outside of the hustle of Kuta and Jimbaran seemed like the perfect place. Jimbaran offers great restaurants, beaches and yet you are still able to commute across Bali from here if you like.

If you don't like huge hotels and won't to just relax in your own private villa then Karma Jimbaran is the prefect choice.

The hotel is situated across the road from the beach and the seafood grills that Jimbaran is famous for. You can also walk to other hotels if you would like to try something different.

We had a 3 bedroom villa complex with our own private plunge pool. I say a complex because it had its own separate quarters for eating, relaxing and sleeping. When we walked into the villa we actually thought we were sharing with other people, but this wasn't the case it was all ours for 7 nights.

I have to mention that the gardens at Karma Jimbaran are incredible and it is a credit to the staff who manage this. I don't believe I have ever noticed this before in a hotel.

The Karma spa is a great offering and we found the treatments to be perfect and not that expensive.

We ate a lot at the Karma Lounge which is the restaurant, the food was of really good quality and well presented, I found the pricing pretty reasonable considering the quality of this resort. The wine in Bali is really expensive compared to what we pay in Australia but this has nothing to do with the Karma Jimbaran.

If you are after just relaxing and not wanting to share a resort with heaps of people in Bali then the Karma Jimbaran is the perfect place. We work pretty hard at home and just wanted to chill out at our own private plunge pool and not have to worry about what was happening outside.

The management team lead by the General Manager Luke Harley makes a huge different and he made us feel at home from our initial contact, nothing was a problem.

Worth also mentioning that Karma own another resort called Karma Kandara which they have a free shuttle between resorts. Karma Kandara is beautiful but a lot busier, we really enjoyed the day there but were happy when we returned home to Karma Jimbaran.

Room Tip: Pretty quiet place all over resort.

Dear Craig071, thank you for your positive posting about something we enjoy doing. The seafood grills are an outstanding experience so I am glad you enjoyed them with a great sunset, as is Karma Kandara which we are also proud of. The team across all areas are very proud and genuine, but I am glad you have identified the landscaping team as our grounds are very well maintained with a lot of pride and effort. They do not get recognised much from external guests and they do deserve to be, so I am very happy you pointed this out. Internally with 7 months now passed, 2 of our employees of the month have been from the landscaping team so assure you they are recognised by our hotel team. It is good looking after good people, so I certainly hope we have the chance of welcoming you back again for another great boutique experience in Jimbaran at Karma. Kind regards - Luke Harley

This was my second family holiday with 2 kids - 1 and 4 years. Last year, I went to Banyan Tree Phuket and stayed in a villa. Wanted a similar experience in Bali, so I decided to try Karma Jimbaran. Every unit here is a villa with its own private pool. I booked a single room villa but was upgraded to a 3-room villa. The villa was lovely - had a nice, big kitchen and a decent sized pool. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the master bedroom was upstairs. Too troublesome to climb up and down with kids, so we bunked in one of the guest room downstairs instead, and used upstairs for bath times as they had a big bath tub in the master bedroom. I later realised that all units had the master bedroom upstairs, so it wouldn't have made a difference even if I had gotten the one bedroom unit. The plus is I could bring my younger one to the spare room just across when she got up early in the morning :)

The food at the hotel was good. We had our breakfast there everyday and even though it wasn't a buffet, the food was healthy and appetising and portions were decent. They gave us complimentary breakfasts for my 2 kids, so we ordered more than enough for everyone to share. We had most of our dinners there as well, as we didn't want to travel at night with 2 kids in tow. The food was really good and decently priced.

We also visited the sister resort at Karma Kandara to enjoy the stunning view of the beach and have our lunch there.

Overall a wonderful stay with the kids. It's the kind of holiday you just want to R&R and take things easy!

Dear KarenC, thank you for your review and thank you for bringing the family to us. We are a great family location especially with the included kids club, large private villas with plunge pool. I certainly note your comments about the master bedroom upstairs and hope this did not impede too much on your experience with us. I am glad you enjoyed our Karma Lounge for breakfast and most dinners. It is a very good mixed offering, the team are wonderful and the price is absolutely right. We also now have entertainment 5 nights per week too, which we did not have in May. How stunning is Karma Kandara? a real gem and I am glad you visited this like any of our guests can. A beautiful product with Nammos private beach club named in the top 40 beach clubs in the world so why not use it, a guest of Karma Jimbaran is a guest of Karma Kandara!! I hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you all back again and if I can assist in making this happen, feel free to liaise with me directly. Thank you for your business and I am glad we could provide a positive Karma experience. Kind regards - Luke Harley

This place is the perfect relaxation destination. With massive, well-appointed villas, lush private gardens and pools, you can't beat this place. We recently had our second stay here in as many years and weren't disappointed. A great affordable luxury holiday for Aussies. Both times we’ve stayed here, we booked and paid for a 1 bedroom villa and ended up getting 3 bedroom villa’s all to ourselves! The hotel restaurant is great too as is the in villa BBQ service and the day spa. We’ve stayed at several places across Bali and highly recommend Karma Jimbaran and Karma Kandara.

Dear Rob-McMelb, thank you very much for your belated review and making the effort. It is wonderful that you like so many others enjoyed not just our wonderful villas, but also the additional services that maximise the guest experience like the In Villa BBQ, our day spa and included transfers to our sister property Karma Kandara. Our team enjoy what we do which I believe shows and now you can also add live music 5 nights per week as well to ensure there is atmosphere in our restaurant. I do hope I and the team here have the chance to personally welcome you back over and over. If I can assist personally please feel free to liaise with me directly on gm@karmajimbaran.com Kind regards - Luke Harley

We stayed at Karma Jimbaran for our honeymoon in July. We arrived late in the evening, but were greeted by friendly staff and a nice welcome drink. The check-in process was smooth and quick and we were brought from reception to our very nice 3 bedroom villa by car. We were shown around the villa and they made sure we were happy with everything before they left us to it.

The breakfast was delicious, with a good choice of menu. The resort was fairly quiet and peaceful, which suited us fine. We treated ourselves to a spa treatment, which we fully recommend. There are various offers, e.g. buy one get one free. We also had access to a computer and printer in their library, which came in handy.

If you don't like bugs and insects, Karma Jimbaran is the place for you. We were provided with bug spray and mosquito coils, but they weren't really needed. The resort is clean and well tended too.

The resort is not directly on the beach, but it's just across the road. There are also a couple of good restaurants nearby and within walking distance (on the beach). We preferred to use the pool in our villa so not being right next to the beach wasn't a problem. We also recommend visiting the sister resort, Karma Kandara, a lovely location perfect for a romantic meal, with the added bonus of free transport provided.

Luke, the manager, is a credit. I'm sure he reads these reviews, and the personal touch is much appreciated, from introducing himself to providing us with a welcome bottle of bubbly. He also produced a couple of surprises during our in-villa bbq, which we highly recommend (we won't spoil the surprise for those of you thinking of doing the same!)

As a separate note/tip - don't be ripped off by taxi drivers when you arrive at the airport if you are seeking transport. Either arrange transport through Karma Jimbaran, or if you take a taxi don't pay more than $10(usd).

Dear TheHosk, thank you for celebrating your honeymoon with us and I am glad we exceeded all your expectations as a team. Our villas are beautiful and spacious, a perfect location to celebrate a honeymoon or also versatile enough for couples or families travelling together due to their size and privacy. I am very happy you experienced everything on offer from our own services here, the local beach across the road and the private beach club Nammos at our sister property with transfers provided as a guest of Karma Jimbaran is a guest of Karma Kandara. The team here do it because we enjoy it and that reflects across the board in all areas, not one person or department in particular. Desire and intent goes along way and the team here demonstrate that in spades, far from perfect but the belief is wonderful to see. I am glad the mozzies and other bugs also left you alone as they do exist given the climate and environment of Bali, it would be remiss of may to say they don't but we do all we can to minimise their existence. I look forward to welcoming you both back one day and providing you a few more special treats for an anniversary. Kind regards - Luke Harley

We have just enjoyed the most magical two weeks in Villa 17 (3 bed). From the moment we arrived our 21 hour journey from the UK was a distant memory as we were shown around our villa. The accommodation is top quality with all the amenities you could ask for in a luxury villa. The privacy, peace and quiet we're exactly what we were looking for. The huge bath and outdoor shower were great touches! The landscaped gardens and sunshine waking us up on the veranda every morning was just beautiful.
We got married at the Jimbaran Beach Club and everything was handled by Budi the sales manager at Karma. Organising everything from the UK was a worry at first being so far away, but we have to say Budi and his team - wedding planner, make up/hair, photograher and beach club staff ensured the wedding was a truly magical and amazing experience from start to finish - we really were treated like Royalty and the day was just a dream come true.
All the staff couldn't do enough for us with Charles and Luke offering helpful tips and ideas over breakfast and the whole team were first class, giving us lifts to the sister resort at Karma Kandara to enjoy Nammos Beach club. The staff were engaging and interested in making the whole experience as enjoyable as possible.
We can't thank the team enough for all the great memories we will taking away from our wedding and honeymoon at Karma Jimbaran - this really has to be the best address in Bali, FANTASTIC!!
