“Bliss in Semyniak, Bali”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

Perfect place to be in Seminyak, Bali.
I like Seminyak for the vibe and lifestyle. And in Blue Karma you could find serenity and tranquility right in the center of Bali life.
The restaurant will make you love raw food if you've never experienced before.
They have nice spa, and just recently got special laser tool for slimming which gives remarkable results.
The whole place is artistic and was designed with attention to craftsmanship work.
Place is promising to provide soon creative workshops and special healthy packages.

Room Tip: Take villa with private swimming pool. The one I like is 1 bedroom villa on the left side from the p...

A lovely boutique hotel with 21 beds arranged in various private, spacious and unique layouts.  As a frequent single traveller I look for a small hotel with clean facilities close to areas I want to visit and this great little hotel is set out like a village fits the bill. While only new and still understanding guests this accommodation is homely while centrally located and in a quiet location just of the main Seminyak / Kuta road close to the Bintang shopping center (great for taxi directions)

Rooms are very spacious by any measure with most having their own private swimming pool within its their own compound. The breakfast and bar area is on one side of the communal pool with the villas arranged around the other side of the pool. This hotel is for the sophisticated traveler who wants the choice of privacy or community facilities with Balinese staff who will happily include you in their family if you choose to do so.  Having stayed over 25 times in Bali I wanted small and peaceful place to relax and not be stressed by my accommodation, I booked via Agoda and I rate the stay as one of the best to date. 

Small niggles were the lack of electrical points by the table for the laptop and charges that we inevitably take with us these days on our holidays and the lack of suitcase stools. The management was organizing these to be installed as I was leaving as a measure of the proactive willingness to look after their customers.

Having come from a 5 star facility in Ubud I was very impressed by the facilities and the level of service in Blue Karma, it is one of the 40 hotels I have stayed in Indonesia and it rates one of the highest for the reasons mentioned.

This is the first review here, so it gives you a feeling for just how new Blue Karma is!

I stayed with four friends in a two-bedroom villa at Blue Karma over new year's 2012. The hotel consists of several standalone villas. Our villa had its own private pool, tvs in each bedroom and living room, a fridge and cutlery (but funny enough, no kitchen, so I'm not sure what they really really expect us to be eating in the rooms!). Bathrooms are on the outdoor terrace (high walled and covered); it was a very soothing experience to be bathing outdoors!

Hotel staff were helpful and responsive to needs, including requests for directions, help to book outside massages and request for additional sheets/towels/etc. Ardita was particularly welcoming and warm. The hotel staff were also very honest; one of my part forgot a computer tablet in the room after we checked out and went for lunch (before departing for our flight). When we returned from lunch to pick up our luggage, they immediately asked if we had forgotten anything and returned it to us after identification.

Hotel grounds are beautiful, with a lawn around the pool and a pristine pool. As the complex is relatively small, there really is a cozy, comfortable vibe. No beach though -- Blue Karma is located a good 25 min walk / 15 min cab ride from the beach. However, it is very conveniently located with restaurants and shopping right around the block.

Only cons were: The first villa on the left side of the complex (left of the reception area, closest to the road; I believe its called "Ginger") can be very loud, especially if you're in the bedroom on the 2nd floor. You can hear EVERYTHING from the road --- and in Bali, the rumbling of cars and motorbikes is no small thing. I had a sleepless night or two, but friends downstairs were oblivious to any noise. This really is the only thing that keeps me from giving Blue Karma a 4/5 rating ...

The staff were also clearly still figuring out rules of the operation as of Jan 2012: one day we're told eggs were part of breakfast (the continental breakfast that is included with the room); the next day, we're told they're only available at extra cost.

All-in-all, I think if you requested a villa further away from the road, I don't think you can really go wrong with Blue Karma!

Selamat Siang,
Many thanks for your review and taking the time to share your experience with fellow travellers. February was indeed our second month of operation and soft opening. we are delighted to hear that you have enjoyed our facilities and staff hospitality as they are the jewels of our property. We have since reviewed the layout of the upstairs bedroom with more separation and plantings to prevent some of the noises in that particular villas and we thank you for your feedbacks as this always assists any new properties in adjusting their products. We very much look forward to having the chance of hosting you again very soon and let you enjoy the hospitality while visiting the vibrant Semyniak and Oberoi. Warmest regards from the entire team @ Blue Karma Bali
