High quality at a reasonable price. Having stayed at a number of pricier (global chain) hotels on java, I arrived at uma karan and was pleasantly surprised by its simplicity, effectiveness and efficiency. With only 10 or so rooms the hotel is not suited to those looking for a big resort environment but I have no hesitation in recommending it... More

Uma Karan is a compact hotel located in the city center of Seminyak. It is located in an alley where it is peaceful and quiet. But whenever you need something quick to eat or would like to go to the beach or various shops, it is reachable by walking or a few minutes of drive only. The hospitality of the... More

Yet everything can be reached easily either walking or by scooter. The hotel staff were great and always very helpful. But what we liked best is the pool. It is such a... More

First and foremost, the room was unbelievably comfortable. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud, and the shower was spacious with great water pressure. The fixtures were of very high quality, and the room was immaculate when we got there. Each of the ten villas is pool facing, with a small patio good for drying off. The pool is... More

This 'villa style' hotel consist of only about 10 rooms, situated in the quiet side of Seminyak, nevertheless 5 minutes walk and you will reach the main road.

It was the perfect villa for us. 10 rooms in a villa environment, just a stone throw to sunset St and the cool cafe's and restaurants. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
