Reviewed 10 August 2012

We had a perfect stay at Blue Karma. The Villa's are beautiful, we stayed in Sesame Villa and the staff had a good laugh when we called our room 'Sesame Street' and would sing the song to them when asking for our key. The staff provided exceptional and friendly service to us - we loved coming 'home' each afternoon to have a swim in our own private plunge pool and/or having a beer or a cocktail and talking to the great staff at the main bar. The decor of the villas are beautiful along with the perfect gardens - it is a little oasis away from the hectic traffic of Seminyak. The outdoor toilet and shower take a little to get used to but this just adds to the whole ambience of Blue Karma. Even the art work at the main reception was beautiful - I can't say enough nice things about the accommodation and staff. Next trip to Bali I would definitely stay at Blue Karma again and wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

Room Tip: Definitely select the Pool Villa's - they are comfortable and perfectly decorated and having you...

What we loved:
Location- it was really close to the hustle and bustle but down a little lane so it you couldn't hear any of it.

Service- whenever we needed anything they turned up in less than 2 minutes (seriously), everyone was welcoming/friendly/smiled/greeted us- even maintenance staff which was nice, and everyone was always perfectly presented.

Attention to detail - giant coconut and 15 minute massage on arrival, when were taken to our room and then they explained how everything worked and where it was, a fruit basket in our room, beautiful smelling products, separate bath and pool towels and even different coloured pool lights!

The private pool and outdoor bathroom - awesome awesome awesome. I want both now.

The really comfortable bed and pillows


The only things we would improve were...
THE rooster- this rooster crowed in the morning. And at lunch. And in the afternoon. And at night. All hours actually. This is a recording, imagine it 1000% louder http://soundcloud.com/joeii/the-rooster-i-wanted-to-shoot

Breakfast- only a small thing- they asked us what eggs we wanted to order and gave us the impression that was only what breakfast included (as well as the buffet of course) and everything else was al la carte. I'm not sure if this is the case but we later ordered pancakes and that was included so it was a bit confusing.

The driver - We asked them to help us book a car so we could go to Jimbaryn for dinner. We specifically asked for it to be from 6- 11pm so that we didn't have to worry about what time we wanted to come back and agreed on a price. When we got there and wanted to be dropped off for drinks the driver informed us he was only told he was taking us there for dinner and back only (3 hrs in all) and that extra time would be charged. I don't know where the miscommunication was but a) he was given the wrong information or b) they're using dodgy drivers. It was a moment of stress we didn't need!


Overall: It was a great stay and I'd definitely recommend it. Some of the paintings and light swirls in the ceiling were a tiny bit tacky but you're on holiday after all. I was definitely sad to leave this place.

Room Tip: Seriously- ask about the rooster and try to be as far away from it.

Down a lane in the heart of Seminyak is this gem. Beautiful villas many with their own private plunge pools is a welcome escape from the assault on your senses from the main streets of Bali. The rooms/villas are beautiful, the bedding comfortable and the staff welcoming and incredibly friendly. My daughter and I initially stayed together for a week in Villa Lotus that was just gorgeous, with a large plunge pool but perhaps a bit noisy in the upstairs room but it didn't worry us. Also the Internet in the downstairs bedroom was a bit spasmodic but once again it didn't worry us because the place including the external gardens and pool were just beautiful. Breakfast was included and perfect for what we wanted each day. My daughter returned home and I went off to another resort for 10 days but was extremely happy to return to this very friendly, safe and welcoming place for another week. Second time round I stayed in Villa Lemon wehich was quiet with no internet problems at all. I love Blue Karma, it will be the only place I'll ever stay in Bali... Hope it doesn't become so popular I can't get a room!

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.
