Reviewed 29 January 2014

My partner and I stayed for 5 nights in late January 2014. We stayed in the 1 bedroom "Frangipani" villa. Overall we were very pleased with our stay.

Positives:
- Excellent service, all the staff were lovely and happy to accommodate any needs
- Terrific location and facilities (Everything seems very new and aesthetically pleasing)
- the main pool is AMAZING, always the perfect temperature and such a joy to use
- Central Seminyak location is very useful

Negatives:
- The water pressure in the shower should be increased
- The private pool in the villa was far too cold compared to the main pool, so we never used it
- You can hear quite a bit of external noise from the rooms, particularly early in the morning

The positives far outweigh the negatives and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Karma. We would like to thank the staff for making our stay so pleasant, we will be returning! :)

Room Tip: Frangipani Villa had no "rooster noise" and was very central to the main pool.

Seminyak is a busy tourist area full of shops cafes and restaurants . Blue Karma is right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle but has been so cleverly designed that once you walk through the door you would never know you were in the middle of a town.
The attention to detail is amazing as are the staff ! The food is simple, organic , freshly cooked and tastes delicious . I will definately return.

Hi Anne, You are spot on - we are a little heaven of peace in the middle of bustling Seminyak and lots of thoughts on the design was incorporated in the resort - delighted to hear of your superb visit and looking forward to your return

We stayed in Coconut villa with our adult children and my sister for 8 nights. Well worth the expense, staff were wonderful and the location was relaxed. The villa was so clean and well appointed, would love a bathroom that big at home. The spa was so good. Would definitely go back again. The only down side was the steps to the villa are a bit difficult after a night out.

Blue Karma is a little oasis. Once through the reception the outdoor pool and bar area is fantastic. We stayed in Bergamot villa and were extremely happy. Private pool (while cool was refreshing on the hot days and nights) and the room itself were fantastic with great air con which is a must. Even the outdoor bathroom was a fun novelty.

The staff were what made our stay excellent. Mang Sri in the mornings made us feel welcome and at home. The breakfasts were also great changing daily (Mangosteen is my new favourite fruit)

Finally the location was fantastic. 10 minute walk to the beach, close to the more upmarket shops in Bali, and a nice walk home from dinner or the markets (if you wanted but a cab only costs $2-$3 if you're being lazy).

All in all we loved Blue Karma and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: If worried about noise (we didn't have any problems with cockerels and traffic noise) but maybe...

Hi Nick, Lovely to read your feedback on what seemed to be an awesome stay. Indeed our outdoor showers are a big hit even for guests that have never experienced it and this is the joy of the tropics :) . Mangosteen are indeed awesome and I am sure you will be able to get some at the Victoria Market in season :) or just visit us again we will stock up :) See you soon

We stayed here for 3 nights, and this resort was absolutely amazing!! The staff was incredibly helpful, the villas were BEAUTIFUL, the spa was great, the location was super convenient in the heart of Seminyak (near lots of shops, restaurants, and a supermarket), the food was delicious, and we really enjoyed the pool. And breakfast was included! You cannot beat the price!! The only downside is that it's not near a nice beach, but it seems like there is a dearth of nice beaches in Bali (ironically enough) unless you go to the super expensive resorts or go to one of the islands (like Gilley Island).
Just as an FYI, the bathrooms / showers weren't fully enclosed in somewhat of an "outdoor shower" concept. The shower/toilet/sink are covered, but they are not enclosed by 4 walls. I had never experienced such a thing before and was hesitant at first, but I ended up really enjoying it.

Blue Karma made our stay in Bali. Coming down the alley to the hotel I was thinking "what have we got ourselves in for?!" but stepping into the hotel was a like stepping into a oasis right in the hub of Seminyak. The moment we entered the hotel after our late night flight, we were treated like royalty, the staff were so friendly and inviting, were there are at your beck and call. Our room was absolutely beautiful, we stayed in a queen suite with an outdoor bathroom - absolutely amazing. The room was cleaned to perfection daily and bed was turned down of a night with all the lovely lights and mosquito nets drawn. The gardens and pool of the hotel were beautiful, immaculately kept by the gardener and traditional decor was admired. The inclusion of breakfast with our accomodation was a bonus! Beautiful breakfast daily along with coffee and fresh fruit juice. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Seminyak, particularly couples. If I come back to Seminyak, there is no doubt I will be staying at Blue Karma.

Blue Karma was right in the middle of Seminyak, yet stepping inside makes you forget and even disbelieve you are currently in a city. My wife and I had one night stay in Seminyak, and greatly enjoyed our time at Blue Karma. We were treated VERY well from the moment we arrived. Its location on Seminyak's main road made walking this city very possible. The complimentary breakfast buffet was delicious and offered both traditional and very Balinese tastes. Our room did have air conditioning and television. We would recommend Blue Karma to anyone!
