“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

I come here regularly. Food is great, from the 5 or so meals I've ordered from the menu, always more than satisfied. Staff are friendly while still professional. One of the best selections of wine on the island, cold beer in the fridge and uber fast internet, what more do we need! Try it once and you will surely return.

“Sadly Underwhelmed”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Karma Jimabaran for a week. We were sadly underwhelmed by the standard of the food. Very ordinary and overpriced.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

Quite average food for a lot of money

We had the bouillabaisse which was not a soup. Just a big mound of rice in the middle and some seafood around the side. The rendang was light on sauce but the beef was at least cooked better than at Made's Warung. Not worth the money or the long walk up the hill. Avoid. Service whilst attentive was nervous.

Dear berniebern

I am sorry that you feel dissatisfied with your dinner in Karma Lounge. You are right in saying that the “Balinese bouillabaisse” on the menu is not the traditional south of France dish and we should have advised you when taking the order.

Training is a big part of Karma Resort and we will continue improving in order to give our guest the best dining experience.

We are now renewing some of our dishes and prices, and I would be very happy to welcome you again in Karma Lounge and hopefully meet your expectation.


Warm regards

“Lovely Breakfast”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

We stayed at Karma and had breakfast every morning in the lounge which was great. Attentive staff always with a warm welcoming smile. Yummy breakfast selection and great coffee. Had dinner here a couple of times as well which was nice but a bit on the pricey side. Lovely outlook across the pool and gardens. Throughly enjoyed our stay.
