“Great hotel with for people who don't mind noise. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I stayed in Blue Karma for a total of five nights and we loved it. The hotels are beautiful and the service provided is impeccable. We asked the lobby to book restaurant reservations and taxis and they did so without any problems. They also allowed us to have an early check in, as we came from another hotel in Ubud where check out was 12pm. They also allowed our luggage to be stored there as we had an 11pm flight but had to check out at noon. We were very grateful for this and found the staff very accommodating. We stayed in the lavender villa which was roomy and beautiful. My only negatives for Blue Karma is that the private pools are very cold as the walls are high to provide privacy, which is understandable. We did use the public pool though and that was fantastic.

Another negative is that our room did back onto the street with a door literally leading out to a back alley. We're not light sleepers so it didn't affect us very much, but other people may have problems. There is also a temple or something very close which on our first day decided to play extremely loud music from 9am-9pm. This bothered us a lot more than the room on the road did. They played music with no rhyme or reason, at whatever time they felt like. Other than that we loved our stay at Blue Karma. If you're a light sleeper or you plan to spend a lot of time in the hotel the noise may bother you but otherwise I would definitely recommend it!

Our villa at Blue Karma was a lovely surprise, so spacious and quiet, very well appointed and with the luxuries of a private plunge pool, and fabulous outdoor shower. My daughter and I were able to spread out our yoga mats in the huge lounge room to practise. 6 days here were spent very comfortably, and we were well cared for by all the staff. Breakfasts were a highlight with delicious fruits, muesli and omelettes. Spa treatments were also excellent, especially the Balinese massage by therapist Christine. But be cautious of the shirodhara oil treatment, the oil was way too hot! We enjoyed the resort's quiet lane way location, and happily walked or were driven to the beach. Thank you everyone at Blue Karma.

Blue haven is pure luxury for a great price - If you want to be reasonably close to the beach - about a 10 minute walk - and want direct access to great shopping this is an Excellent location , rooms, gardens and service from the staff are all beautiful and first class you will not be disappointed.

We stayed at Blue Karma for one week at the start of July and could not have been happier with our experience. The food was exceptional, especially breakfast and the cocktails were delicious! The room was beautiful, so comfortable and the grounds were stunning. It was a peaceful retreat when we needed to get away the busy streets surrounding. We felt so at home and the whole experience was topped off by the staff. They were attentive, friendly and did their best to make our stay amazing. We loved our chats with them over breakfast and the reception staff were always going out of their way to help us. We stayed in a villa with a private pool and if we were to make one suggestion it would be that the photos do not do this room justice, it was incredible! Overall we could not have had a better experience and we would return in a heart beat.

My mother and I shared a one bedroom villa for 6 nights and had a lovely stay. The staff are really lovely and caring and the grounds and pool are immaculate and such a relaxing place to spend time.

The spa is a must do- I had the most amazing facial by Christine, I highly recommend it! My mother also had a fabulous massage by her.

Great location for our first trip to Seminyak- not right on the beach front but they take you down in a golf buggy and it's a 10 min walk back (through shops-dangerous!) and it is near the main road so very central, easy to walk places or get taxis.

We stayed at the Blue Karma the first week of July, selecting it due to Trip Advisor reviews, location, and price. The first, middle, and last impressions are the staff- everyone was friendly, helpful, and simply great. I don't think we could have asked for more with regards to staff, and they are the reason I bumped Blue Karma to an Excellent rating.

On our first night we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. This room had a very cool feel to it- kind of like urban loft meets Bali resort. The only downside was that the bathroom only had a curtain separating it from the main room. Otherwise, we were very happy with it. The remaining nights we were in a 1 bedroom villa. Equally cool feel to it, and with a very sexy outdoor bathroom and shower. One note if you're considering a villa: The weather was not as hot as normal in July for us, and the villa's pool was too cold to be in.

The grounds were meticulously maintained, and quite charming. Everything was centered around the blue tile bottom pool, and the incredible breakfast area sat just to the side of the pool, offering everyone an open view to the statues, palm trees, and pool. We looked forward to breakfast every morning as a great way to start our days. And back to the staff....someone actually called us on our first morning to make sure we didn't forget when the breakfast buffet closes since it was getting late! What place does that?!?!

I would stay here again except that if I return to Bali I would opt to stay in a different location just to check out a different part of Bali. For anyone else looking to stay near the main strip in Seminyak- I would absolutely recommend Blue Karma.

Room Tip: Ask for a room without windows/doors bordering either street.

We stayed for 4 nights in the Ginger room. The hotel's location is great for shopping, eating and drinking. We shopped in the area and were never more than an IDR 20k taxi ride from the best restaurants in Seminyak. We also watched the World Cup final at a bar street less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel, which is amazing given how quiet and tranquil the hotel is. It was peaceful to sit and read by the pool. Our room was an upstairs room with an outdoor bathroom and no private pool. The room was spacious and clean. It was also quiet indoors. We really liked having an outdoor shower, but you'd have to accept having ants and bees around. My only negative comment would be inconsistent water pressure in our room. The staff are very friendly and helpful with good command of English. The service is definitely a highlight of staying here. The breakfast is good and we were offered a lot more than we can eat (fruit, cereal, yogurt and bread table along with eggs, bacon and either pancakes or crepes). We would come back to stay and recommend this hotel to other travellers. Thank you for having us!
