A Look at Bali's Five-Star Beach Resort, Karma Kandara
Mar 06, 2023 By Sean William

Word on the street has it that Uluwatu in Bali is the place to go if you're a daredevil in search of grittier atmospheres wherever you go. Uluwatu, located in Bali, is a popular destination for surfers and other ocean lovers due to its reputation as a reliable surfing spot. A section of cliffs called Billionaire's Row is close by, remaining on the island's southern borders and barely around the peninsula.

Karma Kandara, perched atop Ungasan Hill with a sweeping vista of the Indian Ocean, is one of the five-star resorts that give this area its illustrious moniker. Recently, I was asked to spend two nights at Karma Kandara, where I could partake in the resort's offerings and document them with photographs.

In this post, I'd want to tell you about my recent personal experience. Booking a stay at Karma Kandara Beach Resort may be your next big adventure if you are searching for a luxurious place to kick back and relax.

Where is Karma Kandara?

It is easy to get to Karma Kandara from Bali's international airport, Ngurah Rai, as it is just around 11 kilometres away. Karma Kandara may be found on the Bukit Peninsula (the protruding bit at the island's base), south of the airport, and is characterized by an arid and rocky terrain.

The coastline here is mostly composed of cliffs like that of Karma Kandara. Have no fear since Karma Kandaras has its cliff-side cable car to make trips to the beach a breeze. And if you're feeling adventurous, the stairs are always an option. I couldn't wait to get to this part of Bali and start shooting because I'd only seen the west coast of the Bukit Peninsula.

The Karma Kandara Villas

At the Karma Kandara resort, you may enjoy a cosmopolitan beachside villa stay with your loved ones. The villas here are like mini-resorts in and of themselves, thanks to their pools, terraces with loungers, and other facilities. Not just a place to lay your head anymore.

Some more luxurious homes have infinity pools that look out over the water, while others have garden views. Among the verdant landscaping, you'll discover villas with 2, 3, and 4 bedrooms, and you'll have to navigate a labyrinth of beautiful stone paths to get to Karma's amenities. If you arrive at the proper time of day, the sun will cast lovely shadows through the palm trees, illuminating the pathways below.

All of these villas are stunning in their own right. Each has been meticulously crafted to the highest standards and is always pristine. The villas are staffed by attractive Balinese concierges available 24/7 to see your every want.

The complimentary fruit bowl is restocked daily with fresh, local tropical fruit, and luxurious lotions and potions are available. Oh, and if you, too, are a robe fanatic, your closets are stocked with robes for your use.

The Karma Beach Restaurant and Exclusive Beach

If you're in the area, stop by the Karma Beach restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or sunset drinks, regardless of whether or not you're staying at the Karma Kandara Beach Resort. Relax in a pod suspended from the ceiling, share a romantic dinner at a table for two on the beach, or chat with your pals at a round table. Raise a glass and cheers to a happy life!

The Amazing Setting At The Cliff Spa

The Karma Spa, perched on a clifftop, has won several awards and is a spectacular setting for luxurious spa treatments. Spa Bales are perched precariously on the edge of the cliffs, overlooking the Indian Ocean from every direction. Various health and beauty facilities, such as a sauna, a soaking pool, a steam room, and outdoor showers, are available to guests.

Karma offers spiritual healing, detoxification, anti-ageing facials using oxygen, and traditional Balinese wellness treatments. All bodyworkers on our spa staff have extensive education in human anatomy, and they take their time during treatments to help you relax and enter a state of deep healing.
