KARMA KANDARA, BALI
Located in Ungasan. the southernmost tip of Bali and a 25-minute drive from Denpasar airport, Karma Kandara is situated on the edge of a cliff offering breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean.
We were warmly greeted by Judy Chapman, the Spa Curator Manager of the resort, who had lined up a stay for us with a programme filled with adventures, wellness spa treatments, healing therapies and yoga.
This outstanding resort comprises 46 villas, ranging from 1-5 bedrooms, all with private pools. The villas are connected by tranquil lush tropical gardens, paths, bridges and ponds, and thriving fauna with regular visits from monkeys.
The morning after our arrival we had the opportunity to experience yoga in the ocean’ also known as S.U.P. or ’Stand Up Paddleboard’ yoga. The class consisted of yoga stretches, meditation, paddling and a serious core body work out, all on a surfboard! A very fun and challenging experience that left us relaxed for many hours after the class.
At Karma Spas their philosophy is pleasure is part of the cure’ and we received different ecstatic treatments from healers and therapists that always left us longing for more. Our favourite ones were Cranio Sacral healing therapy with Elisa Senese, a fantastic Jacuzzi session overlooking the sunset and the amazing private yoga class with Leilani. karmakandara.com
