From the moment we stepped out of the airport, the staff at Blue Karma were fantastic. A huge shout out to Madi our driver who later took us around to ubud, the volcano and many other cultural shops as well as driving us to our next resort the day after. He took care of us so well which really made our holiday. A real great guy- definitely ask for him!
We stayed at Blue Karma for 2 nights but would happily have stayed for longer.
Be aware that this is a small resort of about 20+ rooms but this means its quieter and more personal.
Pros:
- beautiful, clean cool rooms- an escape from the bustle and heat.
- quiet secluded corner but right in the heart of Seminyak
- excellent staff
- fabulous spa- my husband fell asleep and I had to go wake him up. Not expensive at all. (We upgraded our complimentary massage to a full hour which was completely worth it.)
- complimentary breakfast was definitely good enough. They have specials each morning and great eggs. The fresh juices were to die for!
- complimentary wifi was good to have but slow connection.
- last but not the least- Madi our driver and guide!!

Cons:
- rooms were a little dark and could do with more light.
- slow wifi connection
- roosters screaming their lungs out from 5am but no one can do anything about it so bring your ear plugs. It's probably a common problem all around Bali.
- yes airport transfers might be a little pricey vs finding a taxi from the airport but it means no worries.

Overall, I won't hesitate to come back the next time I'm in Bali.
Thanks to all at Blue Karma!

Beautiful accommodation with lovely big rooms. Always slightly dubious booking via Internet but was well guided by TripAdvisor reviews. This place is stunning, beautifully decorated with a lovely pool. Service and staff are amazing with a fabulous breakfast. Recommend without any reservation.

Room Tip: 4 bedroom villa is stunning with own pool. Excellent service and a beautiful villa.

Thank you Gili for your review on your stay at Blue Karma in our 4 bedroom villa which is indeed a real oasis with private access. A great travel tip for our family and group of friends visiting Bali. Look forward to your next visit for more Bali Blue Karma treats.

What a resort. We have just had the most amazing week From the very first email Ary was responsive and helpful and flexible and Ana bolster joy to deal with. The resort itself was even more beautiful than the photos. Beautiful and clean. An oasis so close to the shops and restaurants. The service was outstanding. Every staff member was smiley and helpful. The rooms and villas we gorgeous we were a big group and all lived it. The food was delicious we ate there most lunches and some dinners. Being a small resort it's very handy getting from rooms to pool and bar. We were travelling with a babies and it was perfect.

Some negatives.

Nanny that they recommended was unreliable and sent her sister on the first night when I was expecting her and had checked her references.
We paid for a bigger van for all our stuff and it was old and had no air con or seat belts. Terrifying for a new mum.
Some villas don't have lounge rooms and lavender backs onto a very loud lane.
Light on the alcohol in cocktails.

In saying all that it's my favourite hotel I have ever stayed in and we will be back next year.

Room Tip: Ask lots of questions as villas different.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

It was our greatest pleasure to find that our web search for accommodation could lead us to an oasis in Seminyak! We were really taken with the undivided attention, as if we were the only guests. If we should return to Bali, we would not look further than Blue Karma. We will thoroughly recommend it!! Ask for Sesame, it's so quiet and the private plunge pool is very welcome to relax. The bugs didn't trouble us in the outdoor bathroom.

The accommodation, atmosphere and attention by all the staff was second to none.

With best regards

Nice stylist rooms with beautifully carved doors and art objects, but not in every aspect practically furnished. The mosquito-net (with holes!) too short to cover the whole bed is an example. Bathroom stylist but not enough hooks to hang up towels. Little space to put things and too little contacts to load all batteries needed nowadays. Very small balcony with no view at all. A good designer with a practical eye for details AND a good taste could do wonders to the room. The staff is friendly and helpful and does its best. Overall a bit impersonal atmosphere.
