    "I had an yoga and massage retreat with my friend at Blue Karma Ubud."

    "Yoga in middle of nature was very relaxing and refreshing!"

    "The resort is beautiful and charm with good nature view and relaxing environment. It is located a bit far from the Ubud center, but gives us a peaceful time from a busy and crowded town."

    "The staff is very friendly and ensures that we are comfortable. The shuttle bus to / from Ubud center is convenient (every 2 hour from 10am to 8pm)."

    "I will definitely stay again!", edited

    "We went to blue karma for the first days of our honeymoon. The location was very nice near the center street of Seminyak. The decoration was wonderful. Our room was specious with a lot of furniture. We could choose one of the five breakfast menus every day. The staff was very helpful with everything we needed. For sure, if we come back to Bali, we will return."

    "The hotel is good and has a very different setup. The decor of the hotel is also unique. The breakfast buffet has set menu options. Well, the area is not as lively after 10 p.m. like the hotel areas near Seminyak square."

    "Upon arrival, we knew we were somewhere special. Tucked away off the road, this was paradise. Our room was upgraded on arrival to a private villa with plunge pool, and from this moment on we didn't look back. They have amazing room and facilities. The staff were amazing. I highly recommend getting a massage here too. It's a great way to end our stay."

    "We stayed here for five days and four nights. Overall, this hotel is really good. Great hospitality and good homely environment. We stayed in a two bedroom private pool villa, which was very good. Few points which I feel to be improved here."


    "1. Bathroom tap water supply flow was very slow. Big challenge during shower. So it has to be improved."


    "2. Room service was good but again some improvements are needed because the bathroom towels were not changed everyday, though they come for room service everyday. For a few days, they did not give us fresh towels but they just put the towel back to place with proper fold."


    "3. Hotel restaurant service really needs to be improved as they are very slow, not very attentive, and served wrong food in my room. Also, the restaurant menu needs to have more items and variety as we got bored with the same menu after two days, because we tried almost all the food. Food taste requires to improve a bit."


    "4. The spa also requires to improve a bit as they need to have more efficient and more professional staffs."


    "I still recommend this hotel hoping they will improve after getting good feedback from guests because overall it is very good hotel and very clean."


    "Room tip: Good cozy villa rooms and queen-size bed was really big enough to accommodate two adults and one kid."

    "Our stay at Blue Karma was very enjoyable. The small size of the hotel really makes you feel more special as guests. The hotel seems to easily pull everything off and get everything right by not over-complicating things. The rooms are a very good size and we loved how they did the breakfast here. The spa here is also very good and well priced, so would definitely recommend booking in for a treatment or two."

    "We had a seven nights' stay in a villa with private pool. The rooms, food, gardens, pool, and of course the staff are fantastic. The rooms have an outside bathroom and shower and it's so quiet. They were so good to us and particularly our daughter. It's really close to the shops, restaurants, bars, and they help you with everything. We will be back!!"

    "What can I say, this resort is magnificent! It is just a few steps away from the main bustle of Seminyak. This resort has totally made my trip! It's insanely gorgeous, and the staff are just so lovely. There really are no words, and photos online do not give it justice. The rooms are amazing, large, and clean as a whistle. The pool is so clean and you literally feel like you're in your own paradise. With the beautiful decor and amazing art work, this place is a must stay if you are looking for a quiet and totally relaxing trip to Bali. I would also like to encourage all tourists over here to do their bit and donate, or at least do something to help the overpopulation of animals. Villa Kitty is a cat sanctuary and desperately needs assistance. I saved and donated for a mother and kitten over here and if we all do one thing during our stay, we can make major contributions to Balinese animals. Don't be an ignorant tourist! Help where you can and have an amazing trip as well. "

    "The large private villa with private pool was very intimate and it has a wonderful bathroom. The rain-shower is a drawback because it didn't function properly. Breakfast was a surprise. The large pool is good in temperature and pool chairs are nice. However, sometimes they lack of pool towels."

  • Review by Joanne Hurley from UK

    "This place is incredible. My daughter and I arrived very late on a Sunday night. The receptionist was so helpful, that he stayed with us for around half an hour, showing us the room and advising us what to do. We had just arrived from London after a long two flights. The room was absolutely beautiful (a lower floor would definitely had been better), very simple, clean, with a lovely shower. The walls are bare concrete but the furnishings make it look very attractive. For breakfast, you can order a tray of hot food with eggs. We just went for the fruit and bread as we are vegan and this was plentiful. The fruits were fresh, and I saw the lady cutting it up each day, not some bucket of fruit you buy in bulk. The jams were lovely and homemade. The hotel is very small but so cozy. The grounds are beautiful and it's right in the center of everything. It is around 15 minutes walk to the beach, past loads of shops down a lovely road. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommended this hotel. Thank you for the amazing two nights."

    "Lovely hotel, peaceful, and secluded. Beautiful room, pool, and breakfasts. Very difficult to leave the hotel as it was so relaxing. Only about ten rooms and not completely full, so it felt like our own! Nice staff too. Had a massage there, and it was a bliss."

    "My husband and I stayed at the Blue Karma Hotel during our last couple of nights in Bali. The hotel itself was wonderful - beautifully decorated, tranquil, and luxurious. I would highly recommend it. I would like to share an incident that speaks volumes about the staff. I left a diamond necklace in our room by mistake and only realized it about a week after we returned home. I emailed the hotel and they confirmed they still had it. The staff (especially the Sales Manager, Panca) went above and beyond to help reunite me with my necklace. They showed themselves to be extremely honest, caring, and definitely put the customer first. If you're considering booking here, just go for it. You won't be disappointed."
