The resort’s 40 villas, which range in size from one to six bedrooms, are inspired by classical Balinese architecture, with two or three pavilions surrounding a courtyard garden with a swimming pool, outdoor shower, and sun loungers. The Karma Lounge restaurant is open-air and surrounded by tropical palms and sweet-smelling frangipani trees. The chefs prepare local dishes and Western comfort food using ingredients from nearby farms, and live musicians often play anything from jazz and blues to traditional Balinese gamalan music. The Karma Spa offers an array of treatments from oxygen infusion facials to Balinese massage.
In the Area
The resort is on the shores of Jimbaran Bay, the hub of Bali’s nightlife and surf scene. The Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple, the most sacred of the eight cardinal temples on the island, is located just a 15-minute drive away; it’s dramatically suspended on a rock outcropping high above the waves. The concierges can also arrange game fishing, whitewater rafting, Balinese cooking classes, cultural encounters in ancient villages, shopping in local markets, climbing a volcano, scuba diving with giant manta rays, and kite surfing.
How to Get There
There was an incident where a guest fell over in the bathroom because of the poorly design shower screen . The water leaked from the shower and poured over the floor causing the quest to fall back on her head and hitting her hip and leg on the tile floor. This caused a great deal of pain for several days for my guest. The fault was reported but not adequately fixed.
We were a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) staying here. The grounds are beautiful. Lush and well maintained. The villa is everything we could have asked for. Beautiful rooms. The outdoor shower was great. The pool was a great size for us to have fun in. The villa even had a dish washer! The staff was amazing. Very professional and helpful. The location is fantastic. It's directly across from Muaya Beach. What a great place to each and watch the sunset. Highly recommend this place.
Very pleased with our visit to Karma Jimbaran. The Villa was spectacular and the friendliness of the staff was simply amazing. Spa seemed pricey, that's why we chose against it, so can't say how good it was or if it was value for money.
