“Bali Indulgence”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

A birthday "indulgence" for my partner was an excuse to book into Karma for 4 nights [which turned out to be 5 nights] - a special treat for a lady who has never travelled to Asia before and was a little apprehensive. She was instantly enchanted by the atmosphere and tranquility of Karma, and the Villa was far more than she had expected. Beautifully presented, private and opulent, the private plunge pool and courtyard, with frangapani trees and stunning evening lighting made for a fantastic romantic getaway - with wifi - if required. The staff were wonderful. Helpful, attentive and polite. Breakfast was an event to really look forward to after a walk along the beach at Jimbaran, literally on our doorstep. Evenings on the beach eating what must be some of the best seafood "warungs" Bali has to offer. Our departure from Bali was late evening. Upon hearing of this, Luke, the manager, saw us personally and allowed us to stay in our villa way beyond checkout to shower and change after a long hot, sweaty day, before the mad dash to the airport. That really topped off our wonderful stay. Can't recommend them enough!

Room Tip: Our villa was subject to morning sun making early mornings - if you are an early morning person - a...

We spent 3 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period at Karma Jimbaran. Family flew in from 3 different countries to reunite and celebrate. We all had a fantastic time. The staff couldn't do enough for us, the villa was fabulous, the restaurant top quality. Our breakfasts were amazing and sitting there in the morning really started our day with the manager asking us what we were doing for the day and offering wonderful tips. It did rain a little but even that wasn't bad as we got to stay in our beautiful villa playing cards or went to the spa, which I think is the best I've ever been to. Highlights - sitting having a drink at the Beach Club watching the local boys playing soccer or the beach grills at night watching the sunset. A perfect place for a family re-union.

We had a fantastic time staying at Karma Jimbaran for a couple of weeks over Christmas and New Years. The staff were friendly and helpful. Organising trips to various parts of Bali was easy thanks to the staff - they helped arrange transport and other accommodation, which made our entire experience easy. A lot of effort was put into making sure that you had a range of experiences at your finger tips. The restaurant and menu were excellent, great variety and great quality. The villas were immaculate and gave a great feel of space and privacy. Finally, it's a beautiful area to be, and very close to a lot great places to explore.

Patrick, thank you for your time and for staying with us. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the restaurant and the menu. When you return our new menu has just been launched by Chef Charles which has a whole new take on the previous menu but receiving rave reviews from media and our guests. I hope we can welcome you back to experience it, our huge villas and our friendly service which hasn't changed.

We loved our time at Karma Jimbaran. The villas are divine, the grounds are luscious and the ambience is calm. The staff are genuinely helpful, especially the GM and the chef. The cuisine is fresh and delicious, especially the healthy menu. And Jimbaran is blossoming beautifully, with amazing seafood on the beach and cute boutiques and cafes in easy stroll. It'll be the next hotspot in Bali, for sure.

Room Tip: each villa seems to be unique, but all are divine in their own way.

Dear GeorgieLee, thank you for your review and also thank you for travelling from so far away to visit us, quite a distance and quite a change from Washington DC I dare say, but obviously well worth it. Our product, our team and our overall experience are memorable and I trust you will return. Now you have seen the size of the villas, you can bring more people with you to enjoy the environment, the service, the restaurants and the plunge pools in your villa. You are absolutely right, Jimbaran is becoming a lot more popular and we are excited about this.

Great place even though its a little way out. Not much around here. Beach was ok but I wouldn't swim in their beaches. We kept to our pool villa. Our first villa 3 bedroom (upgraded) was very noisy and there was a very busy back road behind the villa. Dogs barking constantly and when they stopped the roosters started. Little to say i didn't get much sleep. Our pool filter wasn't working properly especially after the rain. After making a comment to the GM - Luke -we were very quickly moved to another villa which was 4 bedrooms and much quieter and with a pool filter that worked. They were very accommodating and very professional in ensuring that we very comfortable. We had in house BBQ in which they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine as well. Included breakfast was also good with freshly made juices and healthy. We found a nice restaurant at the back of the villas called Pepe Nero's (italian cuisine) with great views of the ocean and the best food. We also visited the sister resort to Karma called Kandara Jimbaran situated on a cliff top. Take a carriage ride down 85 metres to Nammos Beach Club and enjoy a cocktail or two.

Dear MelbourneAdri, thank you for your review. Sometimes unforeseen circumstances like operational plant and machinery, rogue animals and weather can affect the operation slightly and have a knock on affect to the guest experience. Most important is the recovery and I am glad we were able to rectify quickly and professionally so you could enjoy the remainder of your stay. I am glad you enjoyed the In Villa BBQ, which is truly an amazing experience and highly recommended. I hope you return to us, so you can experience this again and if I can personally assist in any way I am only a phone call or e-mail away gm@karmajimbaran.com

I have been to Bali many times and was really impressed with the Karma Jimbaran.We stayed for 8 nights. We purchased a voucher for a 2 bedroom pool villa but were upgraded to a 3 bedroom villa. It was ideal for a young family ( 3 kids under 6). The kids club was great and there was a fence around the pool for security. The rooms were maid up twice daily. The in villa BBQ was fantastic as was the overall service and professionalism of the resort. The breakfasts were pretty good ( a few excusable hiccups aside) and Luke the GM was always available and happy to impart tips of things to do and places to go. The day trip to the Beach Cub of the sister property was well worthwhile and the beach was awesome. Close walk to shops and restaurants and across the road from the Beach.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back did get the odd traffic noise and animal sounds.

We just had 4 weeks at Villa 22 over Christmas and new year.

It was without doubt the most relaxing, most beautiful holiday I have ever had. Over the course of the month, we had our extended family of 12 coming and going and everyone had a ball!

The staff and services were second to none. The location was stunning - we couldn't have asked for anyting more! The food and entertainment were sensational. And, the spa - what a magnificent experiecne.

We were ready for a relax and we certainly got it. Nestled in our villa, we felt far removed from the hustle and bustle of Bali, but we were still so close to so many things.

Thank you Karma Jimbaran - we will most certainly be back.
