“Perfectly pampered - without breaking the bank”
Reviewed 15 March 2011

My preference is always a private, spacious, stylish villa with kitchen facilities (e.g. full fridge which you can stock from the local market) over a four- or five-star hotel room. Karma Jimbaran offers the best of both worlds.
The many, courteous staff at Karma Jimbaran were always there immediately when you needed them and, more importantly, not there when you didn't. The ratio of staff to guests must be very high. The service was impeccable - when required.
Situated across the beach in a small complex of 24-hour guarded villas, Karma Jimbaran villa facilities include a restaurant & bar alongside a large pool as well as a calming spa with wonderful masseurs/masseuses and, apparently, a gym and kid's play room. It is nestled alongside the Four Seasons resort and just down the beach from the Intercontinental Resort - both with expansive gardens (and bars) worth utilising at sunset (Happy Hour). After cocktails at a beach-side lounge, wander down the beachfront and dine at one of the cafes/warungs. It is a very reasonable meal out.
Stay at Karma Jimbaran and take (free) advantage of the exclusive, gorgeous Nammos Beach Club at their sister resort, Karma Kandara, 20 minutes away.
Karma Jimbaran villas is is an ideal location for vacationers who have already seen the sights/shopped the shops of Bali and just want to relax in a spacious villa and be pampered. Of course, first time visitors could book a <$50 driver/car per day to sightsee and shop the length and breadth of Bali but they, too, will be eager to return to the peace and privacy and pampering of Karma Jimbaran.

Thank you very much the wonderful comments, Dscerning! We really take pride in our well-trained and professional staff who know how to serve discreetly. I’ve let them know of your feedback. Good personal tips as well. The luxuries and views of Karma Kandara are just a ride up the hill and well worth taking advantage of. Many do find it hard to leave the ‘peace and privacy and pampering of Karma Jimbaran.’ Hope you’ll return soon to enjoy it once again! We would like to invite you to please post your 'Karma Experiences' and any photos with us on our FaceBook Fan Page - http://www.facebook.com/karma.resorts.group

A most beautiful resort in a stunning location! The staff were at all times most helpful, friendly and polite. They were very keen to please at all levels and we were not let down once.
The villas are beautiful and the gardens sumptuous. Watching the sun rise through the palm treees is very special
The staff at the Spa gave wonderful massages and I am now a Bali massage convert.
Thank you Karma Jimbaran!

We are delighted to hear that you had such a great stay with us at Karma Jimbaran, SaucySource. We’ll be sure to let our staff know about your kind words regarding their service! ‘Morning of the World’ is one of Bali’s nicknames, and I’m sure you realize why after witnessing a sunrise or two between the palm trees! Cheers for writing and hope to see you back soon.

This hotel is very good for relaxing and rest but with teenage boys there is not so many attractions. The hotel does not offer boards or sports equipment and the trip to other teenage attractions means a taxi ride each time. Watch out the tour,s priced in US$ come very expensive.
We found the villas lovely and well equipped although you are not supposed to do any cooking as there are no oven gloves, tea towels etc. Private pool was a great asset and the sports complex well equipped. The massages are very expensive. You can get much cheaperand better ones off the smaller spas in Jimbaran and despite advertising yoga it was unbelievably difficult to organise.

Staff all lovely and friendly. If your family like to be away and rested this is a good hotel. If they are very active probably not the best choice.

Thank you for the feedback and glad you had overall positive experience during your stay, AniBerlin. Perhaps you can plan a complimentary visit to our sister resort, Karma Kandara on your next trip. Our Nammos Beach Club offers a number of activities from sea kayaking to snorkeling that should keep your teenage boys sufficiently occupied. We will take note of your comments regarding our yoga program and work on getting this more easily scheduled.

Yours Sincerely,
Karma Resorts Management

Stayed 6 nights at Karma Jimbaran with 2 small children. From our initial greeting, to our sad farewell, the staff were always warm, generous and of course responsive. Service here was simply exceptional.

The key to the stay is always the accommodation and our villa was perfect. Strong simple design that worked, quality fixture and fittings and of course amazing garden and pool. We didnt feel the need to leave often...esp with twice daily cleaning.

Used many of the facilities at the resort, kids club was huge success with both children, gym well equipped and can recommend the 'bali' style massage. We take food seriously - were from Melbourne :-) and the coffee and food from the restaurant was always excellent.

Our big tip is the cooking class. After huge breakfast we were escorted with staff member Jeffrey and chef Stefan to the fish market at Jimbaran. Selected fish to our taste as well as fresh vegetables and spices. Fascinating experience. Back to the kitchen to prep the fish, and then finally a 2 hours class in our villa on cooking traditional balinese cuisine. Six courses all up, which we ate as the kitchen was being cleaned!. Incredible value and experience.

Hope to be back again and again....

Cheers for your enthusiastic comments, JohnLiz. We are very proud of our well trained and ‘exceptional’ staff and will let them know about your kind words regarding their service during your stay. Excellent tip about our cooking class too. It’s a truly unique opportunity to check out, hands on, how we source, prepare and serve up traditional Balinese cuisine. We are especially fortunate to be located near Jimbaran Bay, one of the island’s most bustling fish markets. Glad you were able to make this a special part of your trip and we hope to see you back again…and again…and again!

We stayed at the Karma Jimbaran Resort on Bali from 13-20 November, 2010, and let us say that it was absolutely fantastic. We had a one bedroom villa, enclosed by a surrounding wall and with our very own pool. The setting of the resort and villas and the atmosphere were all that anyone could hope for. The villa was complete in all ways. The outside Balinese Shower was an extra amazing touch. The resort restaurant was excellent and Jimbaran Bay with its calm sandy beach was only 25 meters away - a short walk across the street. The resort staff was outstanding and if we wished, we could lay by our pool all day long and see or hear no one and nothing but the birds and butterflies that came for a visit. An easy 20 minute ride got us to Uluwatu Temple and the airport, a 250 meter beach walk got us to the freshest seafood around!! The resort had accommodations ranging from one bedroom to 4 bedrooms; each and every one was unique and simply exquisite!! We have plans to return again late next year.

We appreciate your glowing feedback, BeachBumBill! Thanks for taking a moment to share your experiences at Karma Jimbaran with us. It’s true that we are located very practically to several attractions such as world-famous Jimbaran beach and bay with for its seafood BBQ, the spectacular Uluwatu Temple (and the must see Kecak Dance), and of course our sister resort Karma Kandara with it’s stunning views and delicious cuisine options. That is, of course, if you’re able to drag yourself from your villa pool! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
