We stayed in Lotus villa (2 bedroom) for a week & absolutely loved this place. The staff treated you like family & really wanted to get to know you which is especially lovely when you're staying in a small property such as this. The food was excellent..we ate here at breakfast & dinner time. The pictures on their website do not do it justice, it is a really beautiful boutique hotel. It was wonderful to escape back here after the craziness on the streets of Bali. The villa was very spacious & we loved the outdoor bathroom. The day spa was also lovely. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to Seminyak.

Walking down a quiet alleyway I didn't know what to expect, but when we stepped through the curtain it was quite amazing. We had the four bedroom villa and it was like nothing I have stayed in before. Private pool, 2 large lounge rooms, four separately lockable bedrooms with ensuites. The entry door, the lighting, the bathrooms - everything was designed to give this wonderful Bali feeling while still being in the heart of Seminyak.

The location was excellent, with many bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance. There is a free shuttle to Seminyak beach on demand and their fun doorless buggy (it's like a big golf cart). Service was fantastic and we loved watching the large team of cleaners blow through the villa very quickly, leaving it all clean and fresh.

Breakfast is included, but the selection is not what you would find at a large resort, so don't go expecting a massive buffet of anything and everything.

The only thing the villa was missing was a stereo, preferably with an iphone doc. There was nothing to use to play music and sometimes you just needed that background noise.

Dear Henners, such a pleasure reading your fabulous comments on your recent stay in our 4 bedroom villa that's indeed wonderful. We are delighted you enjoyed our award winning service and facilities. Our breakfast is more ''boutique'' and at the minute and we appreciate your feedback on the stereo for the villa which we will look into.
Hope you will return soon with friends for another fantastic holiday

Wonderful stay at this Balinese style boutique hotel. Generous size rooms & ensuites with all amenities. Friendly, helpful staff willing to do your bidding. Very clean, quiet, nice linen with good breakfast. Lovely refreshing, good size pool & pool service to make your stay relaxing. Would recommend to all! Cheers

Room Tip: standard rooms were lovely but friends stayed in a pool suite & paid a bit more but loved this!

We hadn't been to Bali for over 20 years and even after thoroughly researching on Tripadvisor, Blue Karma was still a wonderful surprise and better than the photos. The main pool was beautiful, in such a quiet tropical setting and the bar with nightly 'happy hour' and restaurant open to the pool and gardens were so lovely. Staff were amazing and our 15 minute complimentary massages were so good we booked in for another massage before we left - so relaxing!

Hotel is down a quiet gang/lane off the main busy street and so welcoming to return to every day, handy to Bintang supermarket, reputable money changer, shopping and places to eat. Fun to ride in the free shuttle to the beach at end of street with it's bars & restaurants or to view the sunset and only 10 minutes to walk back. Easy cheap taxi ride to get to other areas of Seminyak, Legion or Kuta and we booked a driver through the hotel to take us to Ubud one day.

We were in the one bedroom Lavender Villa with private plunge pool which was lovely and spacious. All the staff were wonderful and made us feel so welcome, we were sad to leave but can't wait to go back and stay at Blue Karma again when we return to Bali!

Room Tip: Villas with private plunge pools are lovely, the hotel rooms are above the villas and apparently sam...

Welcome back to Bali - you must have seen so many huge changes in 20 years - it was a pleasure you chose Blue Karma and we delivered on a great holiday for you. We are indeed privileged being in a secluded while very accessible location within Seminyak and we hope you will make a return trip to the island of the gods very soon

Have just returned from an amazing stay at the Blue Karma.

First time staying here and wasn't disappointed. My girlfriend and I researched thouroughly and the reviews on Tripadvisor are all spot on.

From the cleanliness to the service, everything was of 5 star quality.

I cannot thank the staff more as they went above and beyond to make our 5 night stay an enjoyable and memorable one.

We will definitely be staying here again when we next venture to Bali.

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Karma for a few days of our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. It is a boutique hotel and the pool and rooms are great. It is the perfect location for visiting Potato Head etc and the food is delicious - banana pancakes and Asian bar snacks in particular. The massages are great - we had 15min ones thrown in for free and they were amazing. Highly recommended - we will definitely go back here.

Room Tip: Private pools are beautiful- not sunny all day I don't think…

We have stayed twice at Blue Karma and will return again! Just returned from an 8 day holiday. The best place in Bali. The staff are all really fantastic and go out of their way to help and make you feel at home. The rooms are beautiful, clean spacious and very tastefully decorated. The hotel is in a quiet location and yet easy to walk to restaurants, bars or just 10 minutes from the beach. The food was great and breakfast included in the nightly rate was plentiful and really nice.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms!
