Travelers' Choice® 2012 Winner Relaxation & Spa

Total package for service and relaxation

Reviewed April 21, 2012 NEW

We stayed at the Karma Jimbaran in March. We were upgraded to a four bedroom villa on arrival and over the next 6 days enjoyed fantastic service and consideration as other members of our family joined us. Nothing was too much trouble for General Manager Luke and his staff to make our holiday more relaxing. The villa was equipped with everything we needed for self catering, though we chose to eat at the restaurant most nights and enjoyed consistently wonderful food. The staff at the restaurant even entertained our one year old grandson by pushing his pram around the swimming pool when he and his parents joined us for an early dinner. We were also provided with cot and high chair within an hour of requesting them. We really appreciated the availability of the sister resort, Karma Kandara for a change of scenery. The infinity pool and view were amazing as well as the ride on the funicular down the cliff face to the Namos Beach Club. A regular transfer service in comfortable cars ran between the two resorts. More than anything we appreciated the ability to shut ourselves away in our own walled garden with beautiful pool and traditional Balinese surroundings. When we did venture out of our villa, we enjoyed the two of three treatments we had at the resort spa. The resort is close to the fish restaurants in Jimbaran Bay, which we enjoyed thoroughly as well as the tranquility of the almost rural setting when you walked further on down the road, a complete contrast to the few days we had in Seminyak. In conclusion, this was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.
