Villa Karma Gita in Uluwatu, Bali
Imagine staying in a private villa, with your own pool, in a luxury cliff-top resort on the spectacular Bukit Peninsula in South Bali. Here, you can enjoy all the benefits of your own three-bedroom, modern holiday home – including personal butler service and the use of a car and driver – as well as all the benefits of the boutique-style Karma Kandara Resort, which has everything that you could possibly require within a secure, walled estate. This includes access, via a cable cabin, to a pristine white-sand beach-club, as well as a kids’ club, a jungle gym, a gourmet restaurant, a main swimming pool, and a fabulous cliff-top spa offering spellbinding views of the Indian Ocean.
Your personal butler will be there to greet you at Villa Karma Gita – your contemporary-styled, two-storey, three-bedroom residence, with a courtyard garden and a 6 x 4-metre pool lined with green Java stone. The villa is constructed of local materials, and features white palimanan walls, marble floors, and a shingle roof.
Tactile interiors, Indonesian artefacts, and a rich palette of fabrics in shades of coffee, cream and chocolate, make for an effortless elegance. On the ground floor is an open-plan living & dining room and integrated kitchen, featuring full height folding glass doors, designed to combine air conditioned comfort with tropical living around the pool deck. Here, you can live in harmony with the balmy Bali outdoors. The living area beckons with a comfortable sofa and chairs for a cosy family movie session in front of the large, international-channel TV and DVD player.
The dining area is furnished with a table for eight – perfect for a leisurely lunch that could segue effortlessly into a more formal dinner. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering, which is a blessing if you have kids, and a great opportunity to impress your companions with your cooking skills. Alternatively, you can just sit back and relax with the indulgence of your own personal chef who will prepare delicious meals with the help of the dedicated villa attendants, who will also see to all the grocery shopping; this service incurs an extra charge.
Villa Karma Gita has its own gas-fired barbeque grilling station, so that you can enjoy a barbequed seafood feast prepared by the chef. Of course, you may prefer to do the barbequing yourself, making the most of the sunshine, with tongs in one hand and a Bintang beer in the other (note, the BBQ must be supervised by the staff). Finally, you will always have the option of dining at the resort’s glamorous fine-dining restaurant, or you can head down to the beach club with its barefoot restaurant and bar, where you can swim, relax on the white sand beach, or have fun kayaking in the rock pool lagoon at low tide – kids love this!
The ground floor sleeping arrangements offer flexibility and are ideal for families with kids. Here, you will find two air-conditioned guestrooms, each with an ensuite marble bathroom fitted with a shower. One of these bedrooms is furnished with a king-size bed, and the other with twin beds that can be converted to king. Additionally, there is a separate, air-conditioned study room furnished with a desk and a sofa, which can be converted to a bed and used as an additional bedroom if required (at extra charge).
For sure, there is a huge choice of villas in Bali, but very few of them offer all the perks and benefits of the highly-affordable Villa Karma Gita, which is perfect for families, groups of friends, or even honeymooners. In fact, if you stay here, it is quite possible you will never want to leave!
