Karma Kandara is fairly difficult to get to - the unpaved road leading to the hotel can be rather uncomfortable. This is a resort for those who want a secluded, romantic resort (like us honeymooners), not for those who want to explore Bali.
We had a seafacing villa with a gorgeous infinity pool. The villa was spacious, luxurious and comfortable, with free wi-fi. The indoors/outdoors rainforest shower was nice, though it was a bit of a surprise not to have a bathtub.
As for the hotel facilities, the highlights must be the di Mare restaurant which has fantastic views of the sea, with good food, as well as the private beach which can be reached by an inclinator. The spa has lovely cabins facing the sea, though they are still building the bathroom facilities so you should use your villa bathroom before going to the spa. There is a small but well-stocked library. The grounds are lushly landscaped to give a feeling of a cross between a Balinese garden and a Mediterranean terrace.
The staff were warm, friendly and usually prompt, but out-of-the-usual requests such as our honeymoon perks were met with some bewilderment at first, and it took repeated calls to get a simple thing like the standard honeymooners' layout - which rather spoilt the experience. The staff is friendly but seem rather inexperienced, perhaps as the resort is rather new. Hopefully, they will get better with time.
