Karma Kandara Bali is a 5 star luxury resort at the southernmost midpoint of Bali. Traveling directly South of the resort you would reach the mainland of Australia. If you veered slightly East, missing Australia, thousands of miles later you would wash up on the shores of Antarctica.
1. The Infinity Pool
Infinity pools are one of our favorite things and this pool perched high on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean is one of our favorites.
2. Bean Bags at Karma Beach
- The beach is accessed by a small lift holding a maximum of 4 people. The views are incredible as the small car descends the side of the cliff. The beach can also be accessed by a set of stairs winding along the side of the cliff.
- Yoga classes are offered at the open air studio overlooking the ocean. Can it get better than starting your day in downward facing dog, the sound of the ocean, and the sun just peaking over the horizon? An advantage of taking the stairs opposed to the lift to the beach is passing by the yoga studio and oceanside massage room..
- Waiting until low tide, we walked down the beach to the neighboring Sunday’s Beach Club. Early morning the waves crashed against the rocks separating Karma Kandara’s beaches from neighboring properties. At low tide we easily walked the beaches along the shores of Bali.
Private Villas, Private Pool, Private Entrance
Stone walls line the narrow paths to the private villas. Each villa contains a private courtyard with a pool. Be cautious walking along the paths, many guests are chauffeured around the grounds on golf carts.
4. The Breakfast View at Di Mare Restaurant
3 days later and we are just as mesmerized by the breathtaking view at breakfast. Stephanie loved the various Karma superfood smoothie or yogurt based bowls topped with fresh fruit and nuts on the breakfast menu at Di Mare Restaurant and Lounge.
5. Sunsets at Temple Bar and Lounge
We enjoyed our last dinner in Bali at the Moroccan inspired, Temple Bar and Lounge. Listening to traditional music as the sun set behind the cliffs, we indulged in an Indonesian buffet of grilled meats, salads, and rice.
