“Bali heaven”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I have stayed at the Bali Blue Karma three times in the last two years. If anything the experience get's better. The staff go out of their way to look after you and I love the accommodation, it's great having a plunge pool when you come back on a hot evening. I would recommend this place without hesitation. It's so central to everything, yet a quiet little haven.

Blue Karma was an excellent choice to stay at on our first trip to Bali. We had the downstairs of Champaka Room which if opened up could be used as a large villa. The food, staff, gardens, pool etc were all faultless. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation returning here. Special thanks to Budi the Barman who was very nice and friendly.

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.
