Blue Karma , Ubud Indonesia, Bali
The Blue Karma is a good option for anyone visiting Ubud. Each of the 4 thatched roof villas is uniquely designed and the beautiful communal garden, dotted with fruit trees and perfumed plants, is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the town or surrounding countryside.
The beautifully remastered Javanese huts have a clear view across the resort's pool, into the rice paddies and tropical rainforest beyond. The spacious and stylish rooms, in keeping with the whole resort, have a calming ambience. As you feel yourself winding down, why not treat yourself to a free yoga session in the ‘Karma Yoga’ pagoda or have an afternoon snooze in one of the thatched gazebos nestled in the garden?
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
It was a little disconcerting to be met by a stranger who took our passports and $50 with the instruction of "wait here for me". However, the fact that he then fast-tracked up through customer and immigration was amazing - we felt like rock-stars!
