Karma Kandara

Karma Kandara

*****

Perched, celestially, between the azure Indian Ocean and emerald jungle of Bali’s southern Bukit Peninsula, Karma Kandara takes relaxation to a higher plane. Vast villas hidden among tropical gardens, a serene spa, gourmet restaurants and a sexy beach club invite you to perfect the art of laid-back lounging.

Highlights:

  • Indian Ocean-facing spa, with outdoor Jacuzzi, staffed by talented therapists

  • Spacious, multiple-bedroom villas with indoor and outdoor space for sprawling

  • Undiscovered rugged pleasures of the Bukit Peninsula, far from the clamour of Kuta

An inclinator descends the cliff to Nammos Beach Club, where non-motorised watersports are free for hotel guests. There is a compulsory New Year's Eve dinner, priced at US$375 a head (50 per cent off for under 12s).Look out around the resort for the fruits of Karma Kandara’s artist-in-residence programme, which nurtures the talents of painters, sculptors and musicians then try the healing hands at clifftop Karma Spa.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

How good is that moment at the start of a beach holiday when you spot the ocean for the first time? It doesn’t matter if it’s the Bahamas or Bognor – that initial glimpse of blue always makes me grin. So, as our golf buggy winds its way from reception through a pretty maze of walled limestone lanes, over little humpback bridges and past splashes of hibiscus and bougainvillea, I’m craning for a look at the Indian Ocean.

At a sunshine-yellow door we descend stone steps into our Luxury Pool Villa. I’m absorbing its vast proportions when Mr Smith emits a squeak of astonishment. I spin round – th

Dining information

Restaurant:

Main restaurant, di Mare, is a high-ceilinged, airy, whitewashed space where executive chef Steven Grande serves a Mediterranean menu featuring dishes such as salt-baked whole red snapper with a shaved vegetable salad and truffled chicken breast with mushroom tortellini. It’s all grilled seafood and pizzas from the brick oven at the laid-back, veranda restaurant at waterside Nammos Beach Club down on the sand. Veritas has an addictive tapas menu.

Top table:

Book ahead at di Mare for a perimeter table with eagle-eye views of the peninsula. The communal central table is a sociable option; we’re also drawn to the back wall’s elevated padded banquettes for their broader ocean views.

Last orders:

10.30pm at di Mare; Nammos serves drinks until 11pm.

Room service:

Available from 11am to 11pm. Enjoy salads, Balinese specialties like ayum bumbu (coconut-milk braised chicken with Balinese yellow bumbu and stir-fried water spinach) or classic burgers and pastas.

Hotel bar:

Fruity concoctions and ice-cold beers can be found at Nammos Beach Club, but serious oenophiles will enjoy Veritas, the resort’s glass-clad wine bar overlooking the coastline. Sink into plush, dark-velvet club chairs, and sample chardonnays and pinots from Bali's first Enomatic wine dispenser. Temple Lounge & Bar, on the roof above di Mare, is another drinking hole with Moroccan styling and great views.
