First time at Blue Karma. Very impressed. Big separate rooms, lounge and kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. 2 TV's & 2 DVD players & 2 A/C, 3/4 size fridge, nice polished concrete floors, walls, kitchen bench. Big bathroom with open type wood floor boards and a very big cement bath. Concertina doors open the lounge area to the pool. All lighting is LED and very colourful and effective. All villas open with a very big wooden door to the infinity pool, lawn area, beautiful garden, dinning and bar. This area is very nice and again very clever with LED lighting, even in the pool. Great restaurant with a smallish healthy menu, seats overlooking the garden and pool. Most of the kitchen is open and can see the staff preparing the meals. Looks like all meals, food is made in house. A small shop near the restaurant with cloths and gifts, part of Blue Karma is a trap with the ladies. We found ourselves sitting here all morning after breakfast, soaking up the garden area, going for a dip, ordering another drink. Don’t miss free afternoon tea at 4pm.
All villas have names, no numbers. The key ring is a very nice, heavy brass symbol that also doubles as the power key in the villa. At Blue Karma there are Villas and Suites. Villas have a privet pool and you can get one, two and four bedroom villas. These villas have an upstairs suite that can be shut off and with outside stairs so the suite can be used at the same time. There are inside stairs as well. So you can have a two bedroom villa, upstairs and down stairs.
The photos on Blue Karma web site are all as it is, beautiful, but only showing the better villa bedrooms. Very nice garden, swimming pool and restaurant areas. Great staff.
Our villa pool was shaded a bit so a bit cool sometimes. We swam in the main pool mostly. A couple of evenings there was some noise from motor bikes across the street, but not too bad. The villa and suite combination is very confusing when booking. This I see is a very big problem when booking for a one bedroom villa with a pool. We went with another couple and we both booked one bed room privet villas, at the same time. We got the best villa at Blue Karma, but for the same price the other couple got a villa that would have fitted in our bedroom. Both are classed as one bedroom villas. I questioned staff about this and this is right, one bedroom villas are all different at Blue Karma. I also found out ours was the biggest villa, and the only one this big. The only one bedroom villa with a kitchen. The other villa was a bedroom and bathroom. No bath, no kitchen, small fridge, one TV, one A/C and a shaded pool with no room around it. The pool was too cold to swim in, even in Bali. May be not a problem but not at this price.
So for us this has been the best villa we have stayed at in Bali, very good big villa, common area, gardens, restaurant, great staff. Close second we have stayed at would be Villa Kubu. But unless you know the villa names, and book direct with Blue Karma it would be hit & miss with what type, size of villa you will get. We would love to stay again, but only in the same villa. Because the one bedroom villas are different at Blue Karma, may be look at how Villa Kubu do it on the net as all Villa Kubu villas are different and they have each villa listed separate, photos, plan of the villa area.
