Reviewed 8 August 2014

We stayed at the Blue Karma Hotel for 3 days to recover from a very long flight to Bali, and to acclimate. This was a perfect hotel choice. The staff was great. Very helpful. The food was good and budget friendly, and the hotel itself felt like a little oasis in the middle of a busy area. We arrived at 3:00am and were greeted by friendly front desk staff, who escorted us to our room and were thoughtful enough to bring sandwiches for us.

We were surprised to find the hotel very conveniently located to the beach. I think about 5-6 blocks. Definitely walking distance, but the staff was happy to use their motor cart to drop us off at our convenience. We had a blast body surfing at the beach. Perfect waves and well groomed sand. We rented beach lounges with umbrellas and boogie boards from an attendant on the beach. Perfect!

We stayed in two more expensive hotels during our 3 weeks in Bali, but were most impressed with Blue Karma. Great value and staff were the highlights.

Room Tip: All of the rooms center around the pool area. Our room was quiet and private. Not sure if any of the...

We finished our trip here before flying home and it was the perfect end to Bali. The grounds are immaculate, it's small, quiet and yet just off a busy shopping strip. We had a villa with private pool but the main pool is lovely too and gets more sun.
The room was spacious with great outdoor bathroom and prepared for us each evening. All staff were friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is amazing!
There is a spa which we didn't use due to timing and also a sister yoga studio Blue Senses, just a few streets away.
Overall would highly recommend for this area if you are after small, quiet and boutique style.

I spent 9 nights here with two friends. The hotel is in a great location, close to shops and about a ten minute walk to the beach. A short taxi ride will take you into Kuta. Tip - Always use Blue Bird Group taxis. They are on a metre and stop you being ripped off.
The staff are friendly and welcoming and really make an effort to get to know you and ensure you have a great holiday.
We stayed in a one bedroom villa with private pool. The only downside was that our pool didnt get much sun but the hotel has a large pool with ample sunloungers so it didnt really matter.
Breakfast was simple but enjoyable and we didnt have any complaints. We ate in the hotel once for lunch and the food was good.
I have no complaints about my stay at Blue Karma and would happily return again.

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.
