My room was gorgeous! The facilities were very nice and clean. I was there for the 4 day juice cleanse. The juices were great. However, I would have preferred to have staff contact me when it was time to take them for my entire stay. This was corrected by the second day. I didn't really have one instructor as different people were helping me with my detox process.
Overall, it was a relaxing and good experience.

"Absolutely amazing and flawless. "
I came to get away as I was going through a bad time in my life. I wanted to relax, have good food, escape, rejuvenate, yoga, massages, beautiful morning walks through rice paddies, visit the cultural side of Ubud and blue karma was able to tick all the boxes, if not more. This definitely took my mind off things. Also the staff were absolutely brilliant, they would go over and beyond to keep you happy with big smiles! The entire stay was the best ever and very tranquil...Definitely will be revisiting and hopefully soon!

"Close to perfection. Too bad food is a bit boring "
The location is uncanny. A bit far from Ubud, but that's also part of the charm.
The pool is so serene. The number of guests appropriate. Rooms are fantastic. Views stunning. Staff so helpful and friendly. Yoga classes very good, and the yoga hall is fantastic. The massage therapists very good as well.

"Wonderful re-energizing experience "
I had such a wonderful experience. The staff is amazing. They were very helpful with my yoga and meditation schedule that was part of my retreat. The yoga and mediation teachers were very professional. The SPA and massages were very nice and relaxing. I really enjoyed the location - everything is close and in walking distance. There is also a shuttle to the beach that is also very convenient. The Villa by itself, the swimming pool and all the facilities - all is so well decorated, beautiful design, relaxing smell. Overall, I felt so good vibes and energy - you really feel ZEN since you enter this place. Well.... if I have a chance - I would definitely go again and next time for longer time! Thank you Blue Karma for this pleasant time and experience.

"An unforgettable retreat"
Everything at Blue Karma Resort Ubud was magical. The second I walk into the lobby of the resort, I immediately felt a sense of zen. The property is absolutely immaculate and picturesque. The staff and customer service were superb and was able to accommodate just about anything! My room was breathtaking and what I loved about the entire property including my room was how meticulous the details were.
The 8:30am yoga classes were challenging yet invigorating - a great way to start the day! Not to mention, the yoga studio/platform is quite a unique space.
My retreat included breakfast - the food was incredible! Healthy options and they offer you plenty of food to fuel you.
I received daily massages with my package and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend the traditional Balinese massage.
I highly recommend staying at Blue Karma Resort Ubud. I will definitely come back during my next visit to Bali!

I enjoyed my stay in Blue Karma resort Ubud with kind hotel staffs and comfortable cottage with cute interior. Breakfast and lunch were delicious for me.
There are some information I would like to share with the people who are thinking to stay this resort. (they also inform you at the time of check-in) 1, Shuttle bus service to Ubud Center - Now they prepare for us round trip to and from Ubud. You have to tell them what time you want to pick you up from Ubud at the time of drop off. The service is once every hour. 2, Yoga lessons - They have yoga lessons twice a day from 8:30am and 6:00pm. 8:30am class is hatha yoga. 6:00pm is viyansa yoga. Also I remind that Activities in this resort are required for 1 day advance booking. They cannot arrange their activities on the same day.

"Definitely want to come back"
Amazing staff. Beautiful location. Great massages. Really enjoyed my stay, and would 100% recommend to friends and want to return.
from ON, Canada,
Blue Karma Resort was breathtaking - photos do not do it justice! Excellent service & hospitality from the Blue Karma staff from the minute I arrived through check-out. I would definitely consider staying here again.
The yoga retreat: 7/10
Massages were excellent but yoga instruction could have been better. Being the only student in class, it would have been nice to have instruction tailored to my practice level and/or be provided some guidance or adjustments. I was not a fan of the so-called "Gentle Yoga" which mostly consisted of a few variations to 'kiss your knees'. Beautiful yoga pavilion and all the props provided for a restorative/yin practice but never used.
Because the resort is shared with regular/non-retreat guests (& families with kids), it wasn't always quiet and peaceful as kids love to yell and scream when they play around a swimming pool. Personally, I was still able to enjoy myself despite the less than ideal noise levels required for a relaxing retreat.
A couple of suggestions to improve the overall experience for retreat guests: noise level from kids on the resort should be monitored during yoga classes & spa treatments (or provide a separate kids play area far from treatment facilities); would like to see a better variety on the menu for special diets (eg. vegetarian/gluten-free/etc.). Perhaps include pre-selected meals for retreat guests.
I received excellent customer service from BookYogaRetreats and will definitely use them for my next yoga holiday!
"The yoga retreat in Blue Karma was fantastic"
The yoga retreat in Blue Karma was fantastic! Rating: 10 Fantastic location in the middle of the jungle and rice field and only 15 mins away from Ubud using the free shuttle from the resort! It is a great resort with lot of attention to details in the facilities (garden, pool, restaurant, yoga place, massage place) and the bedrooms. The pool was also very nice with a fantastic view on the rice field and jungle.The choice for breakfast and food was also fantastic with lots of healthy options.The staff was also very friendly and very helpful.Daily yoga classes and massages were very relaxing with very competent staff. These were some of the best massages we ever had!Daily excursions with some people from the local village can also be organised from the resort and we would highly recommend them as you can get a great insight of the life in villages near Ubud and in the rice fields from a local.The overall price is also very good.Overall, we felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated after this retreat!We would highly recommend this resort and would come back again.
from South Korea,
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!
