“Beautiful intimate boutique hotel”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This accomodation is located away from the busy streets of Seminyak, though still in walking distance of shops, pubs and clubs . A walking trip to the beach will take you about 20 mins, or you can take a taxi of course. Uma Karan has only 10 rooms, with a beautiful and serene pool located in between. Actually, we choose this hotel because it is near the airport and we had to leave the next day. We really enjoyed our stay here: the room was neat and clean and we loved the pool. Personnel was nice and helpful and provided us with information and a small map to find our way in Seminyak. This accomodation has a strong and fast WiFi so you can tell your friends how great this place is... :-)

We had a very warm welcome at Uma Karan and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are spacious, quite new and clean with proper shower and aircon. We loved the pool and the tranquil area to hang out in the evening. Although it's not in the center, you'll find enough places to shop and dine.

Everything is great except the location is a bit far (about 20 minutes to the central Seminyak). A tranquil, pleasant and homey hotel, with a nice tropical swimming pool, fresh breakfasts, very comfortable, spacious and well-designed hotel room. If you don't mind a bit walking and prefer quiet places like us, this is definitely your choice!

This hotel has only 10 rooms, a reception area, a swimming pool, and a small breakfast area. Located on the outskirts of seminyak. The hotel is fairly new and well maintained. The rooms are quite large and offer a sofa, TV, large bed, a fridge and a large bathroom with shower. Breakfast is served near the pool or in your room and is a bit basic. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free wifi works fine and due to the fact that there are only 10 rooms the complex has a very private feel. It's a 15/20 min walk to the center of Seminyak. A very pleasant stay!

The Uma Karan is a new hotel in Seminyak. Small and intimate, with an amazing pool. Staff incredibly friendly and accommodating. Slightly off the beaten track but still very close to the action.
Clean rooms with a great bed, you want for nothing.
Feels like you are staying in a villa. Great value for money.

Great location in that it's close enough to walk to the main streets in Seminyak in 5-10 mins, but without being in the thick of it. You can walk to Legian beach in about 20 mins or a taxi will take 5. Getting there from the airport was 25 mins at about 8.30pm, so all very positive in terms of distances.

Staff are really friendly and helpful.

I loved the nasi goreng at breakfast too. I definitely recommend staying here.

We stayed in Uma Karan for 3 nights. It was a last minute booking and we were positively surprised.
Its a small lovely hotel with just a few rooms.
The room was very big and comfortable, and the hotel staff all the time very friendly and helpful.
They serve you the breakfast every morning to your room or to the pool. Its up to you.
it is really quiet and looks amazing with this pool in the backyard.
Could recommend it definately. Thanks to the Uma Karan team.
