“Superb villa, delicious food and sublime spa experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

We've just returned from an excellent week at the Karma Jimbaran with our family. Our sprawling four bedroom villa provided that tricky balance of privacy and practicality. The villa grounds were very well kept and the pool was clean and refreshing.

The accommodation was appointed with everything required for a self sustained stay (easily achieved with some good deli's within striking distance). If that's not up your alley then the team at the bar and restaurant will take good care of you, they certainly did for us.

After taking advantage of a complementary massage at the spa, we all promptly booked in for various treatments over the week which turned out to easily be one of the best such experiences that I've ever had.

I'd recommend the Karma Jimbaran for anyone seeking a relaxing break away from the action. We'll come again.

Wow!  What a week in Bali at the Karma Jimbaran!  We reserved a 2 bedroom villa for our family of 5.  The staff at Karma Jimbaran picked us up at the airport without delay and drove us about 20 mins to the Karma.  When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that we had been upgraded to a 3 bedroom villa.  The villa was beautiful, well appointed with everything you would want, and the kids loved having their own pool.  The next morning we woke to a rooster at 5 AM in the village next to the Karma.  Not good when we had another 5 nights to go.  I called reception at 8 AM and they said when we returned from our day out they would have it resolved.  When we we returned at 1 PM, I called and they informed me that they were moving us to a four bedroom villa.  They picked our luggage up and moved us within 10 mins!  The three bedroom was nice, but the four bedroom (villa 9) was over the top.  Luke the manager personally came by to make sure it was fine.  It was more than fine, it was amazing. 

That night we went to dinner and left a light on in the kid's bathroom.  During the day, we had heavy rains for a couple of hours (it was rainy season).  That night the water bugs / moths came out in force.  They were attracted to the light we had left on in the bathroom.  When we returned from dinner we were surprised to find over 300 hundred moths in the bathroom.  They had slipped in between the doors.  Needless to say my wife (and me although I didn't show it) was a little freaked out.  She called reception and within 10 mins we had 5 people and Luke the manager in our villa.  It was cleaned up in no time and Luke made sure we were happy before leaving.  Either one of these situations could have happened in any villa in Bali, but the way the Karma reacted was fantastic!

The remainder of our trip was uneventful and we enjoyed the Karma very much.  Everyday we would come back from our excursions and the kids would swim and relax in our villa.  We also had the "in villa BBQ" one night and it was excellent.  They setup candles everywhere, set a nice table, and brought in a grill.   There was enough food to feed several villas!  The food was excellent and the price was even better. 

Our breakfast was included and we took advantage every morning of the breakfast at the one restaurant on property.  They offered a wide variety off the menu as well as full coffee bar and fresh juices.  It was very good.  In addition, Luke was walking around the restaurant talking to the guests, including us, asking how our stay was, what we were doing for the day, and if we needed anything.  He was very visible and sincere in his interest in the guest.

Anytime we needed something, we would just call reception and they were there in minutes.

When we checked out, the Karma staff drove us to the airport.  On our way, the reception called my mobile phone to let me know that we had left an iPod in the villa (one of the kids).  They offered to drive to the airport and give it to us before we left.  And they did just that!! 

If you are looking for a great villa experience, I highly recommend the Karma at Jimbaran.  We plan to return on our next visit to Bali.

This really is a little piece of paradise. Staff are amazing, service second to none, food, what can I say it is fantastic food. The private villas give you all the privacy you need. The beach is right across the road so you can go for a nice walk on the beach, come back to your villa for a swim and then head up to the restaurant for breakfast or order into your villa for private dining, either way you can't lose. Great atmosphere, great team of staff and a wonderful manager make this a holiday destination not to be missed. I had the oxygen facial at the spa, with a free manicure thrown in which was total luxury. I cannot wait to come back and have absolutely no problem recommending this place to anyone. I have tried a few places in Bali and this is definitely my top choice. I can not fault this place, you should do yourself a favor and try it yourself.

As I write I'm relaxing on the day bed of our 4 bedroom villa, accomodating a rather large extended family of my children and grandchildren. The villa is exquisite, beautifully appointed and comfortable, catering for all - we range from 6 months to 60 years! Everyone is very happy with the location, food and general ambience. The staff and manager are friendly and helpful. A small problem on arrival was soon rectified and it has been a great holiday for everyone.

Room Tip: Villa 29 is fantastic and an easy walk to beach.

Although this hotel is quite secluded and far from the hub of Seminyak (about 45 mins to an hour in traffic) we relaxed and got exactly what we needed - a rest! Staff are amazing, Nammos Beach was great (ocean not the best to swim though, tides, currents and allot of sea urchins). The food and vibe was awesome. The rooms in the villas are spacious but kitchen was not very clean, cupboards and doors need to be updated. We had a few issues with our room but these were quickly addressed. Di mare restaurant was fantastic, breakfast delicious and staff wonderful. Massage on beach magnificent. Overall experience was fantastic!

Dear Ginaki3144

Thank you for your review of Karma Resorts. Since your last visit there has been numerous upgrades in the roads infrastructure on the island making Jimbaran a now convenient choice and location for those that not only wish to be nearby the airport but also have convenient access to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak.

We would all love to see you again at the resort and if the team or I can be of any assistance until then, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind Regards

Our family of four stayed in Karma Jimbaran for four nights and we couldn't fault it. Although we had booked a two-bedroom villa, we were upgraded to a four-bedroom villa when we arrived, which was fantastic. The food was excellent, even for children and there is a separate, healthy spa menu which made a nice change. The spa is very well appointed and the treatments were very professional. Karma's staff were attentive without being intrusive, which is a bit of an issue if you stay in a private villa with multiple staff. I left some clothes behind when I checked out and they found them for me and organised to post them back to Australia. Overall, I would highly recommend it.
