After 12 visits to Bali and stays at numerous 5 star villas and resorts, I would have to say that Blue Karma was very disappointing. The main pool, gardens, Wi-Fi and restaurant are fabulous, the staff are very accommodating without being annoying and the lighting is beautiful, that is where the praise ends. We travelled with another couple and checked in at the same time but were given completely different villas. Our villa was a bedroom, small bathroom and plunge pool that I named the puddle. The other couple's villa had a lounge room, kitchen, separate bedroom and large bathroom with a huge bath. We booked at the same time and paid the same amount for our villas, so to say that I was unimpressed is an understatement. After voicing my displeasure, we were moved to another villa that was equally as small but had a table a chairs outside so at least we had somewhere to sit instead spending all of our time inside the bedroom. These villas do not get any sun so the pool was too cold to use, this is one of the main reasons we book private villas. The staff used an area directly next to our villa so we had no privacy as the stairs they use look straight into our villa, not to mention their chatting, coughing/spitting and moving around in general ruined any chance of peace and quiet. I feel that they are confused between being a resort/hotel or villa and should have gone with one or the other. The other alternative is to book a suite at nearly half the price, we went through one of the upstairs suites, they are very small with cement décor but perfect as the main area is the highlight.
