Lovely place to stay, it may seem out of the way but its a 10min walk or a 2min taxi right to all the food and shops! The hotel is lovely always clean and always has hot water! The room is everything you need for when your away. The pool is great and hardly any one is ever in it...

This was probably the best hotel at this value in our 4 week trip in Indonesia. The setting is intimate and relaxing, beautiful. Swimming in the pool is very serene. Rooms are clean and well equipped, the staff is very nice and helpful and breakfast was very satisfying. Highly recommended for the price! (Note that this hotel is not in...

Would highly recommend this lovely little hotel, with a quiet tranquil pool, friendly and obliging staff, clean spacious rooms except for the bloody yapping dog in the villa behind the brick wall, at the end of the pool, where the day beds are! Night time is the worse. It even came to verbal abuse and a fist fight from the...

We stayed 4 nights at Uma Karan. The taxi driver also had problems finding the place as it is situated a little outside. But you can walk to the city centre or get a cheap taxi to the beach. The staff is very helpful with everything.The hotel itself has only about 10 rooms so you don't get too much noise....

Beautiful, clean, boutiqueishh hotel. Great that it hosts only a few hotel guests which makes you feel special. With a jump in the beautiful pool in front of the hotel room you can't wake up any better. The beach is just a short walk or a short taxi ride away.

Do not stay here. We had the most unfortunate experience with this "hotel". We booked for the last 5 nights of our honeymoon in October after understanding that the property was a good Seminyak location. Unfortunately we were sorely disappointed. The hotel is only a few hundred meters from the often congested dual carriage way into Kuta, up a dirt...

Dear Guest Mjgabg, Thank you for your feedback to your experience at Uma Karan recently. We understand that your visit to Bali did not go as your original expectations.

We stayed at Uma Karan for 4 nights in late September and had a great time. The hotel is tucked away in the quiet corner of seminyak, but it's a close enough for a short taxi ride to the main action spots.
