Karma Kandara: Bali

Post Category - TravelTravel

Our very first post brought to you by the boutique and luxury hotel experts, Mr & Mrs Smith – read on to find out how you can win a two night stay at Karma Kandara!

Style: Supersized villas
Setting
: Dramatic cliffhanger perched, celestially, between the azure Indian Ocean and emerald jungle of south Bali’s Bukit Peninsula, boutique hotel Karma Kandara takes relaxation to a higher plane. Vast villas sporting two to four bedrooms, crowd-pleasing restaurants, a laid-back beach club and a serene spa for chill-out sessions invite you to perfect the art of kicking back with kids in tow.

Need to know

Rooms: 46 pool villas, each with two to four bedrooms, make for the perfect family escape. If your brood’s particularly large, consider plumping for the Grand Cliff-front Residence, which has five bedrooms.

Facilities: Spa, gym, library, gardens, free WiFi throughout. In villas: flatscreen TV, CD/DVD player, iPod dock, SMEG-equipped kitchen with stocked refrigerator, tableware, washer/dryer, microwave, pillow menu, own-label natural toiletries.

In the know

Sleeping: Karma Kandara throws open the doors to kids of all ages, and the multi-bedroom abodes mean families can bunk down together. Villas with a third bedroom include twin beds; cots are free and extra beds cost US$75 a night. It’s worth noting that some villas are split into several buildings. If you’d prefer to be under one roof at night, opt for three-bedroom villas 1, 3, 5 and 7, or four-bedroom villa 2.

Playing: The all-day Karma Kids Club keeps younger guests entertained with treasure hunts, dressing up, beach larks and junior cookery classes, as well as Balinese puppet- and mask-making and dancing. There are also child-friendly movies and plenty of toys and games in the air-conditioned romping room, just off reception. Under-twos are welcome at the club only if accompanied by an adult. Karma’s concierge will happily arrange family activities; including fishing or sailing to neighbouring island Nusa Ceningan to snorkel its kaleidoscopic reef. You’re also near mellow beaches such as Padang-Padang and the monkey temple at Pura Lulur Uluwatu, where you can catch local dances at sunset.

Splashing: Of the two main pools, the lower one is shallow and ideal for little children. A lifeguard is on duty from 9am to 5pm daily. You’ll need to keep a close eye on younger kids around the villa, as the private pools aren’t exactly toddler-friendly.

Feasting: The colourful children’s menu features age-appropriate fare such as Thomas the Tank Engine’s baked chicken nuggets, Incredible Hulk grilled cheese sandwiches, and Harry Potter’s English muffin pizza, as well as local flavour from Little Buddha’s nasi or mee goreng. Nammos Beach Club, down by the sand, is the place to head for tasty Greek grills and kid-friendly pizzas. Young’ uns will love the inclinator, which ferries guests up and down the cliffside from hotel to beach and back.

No need to pack: Play pens, baby cots, high chairs, sand toys and buggies (request one in advance).

Time-out If you’re a Smith member, you’ll be treated to a wine-tasting session for two, so leave the kids in capable hands and book a trained babysitter, with four hours’ notice, from US$9 an hour. The seductive day spa’s ideal for child-free chilling, too.

What are your weekend plans with the kiddos? Mine are usually spent trying to find outdoor activities for my boys to expend their energy. One of our favourites is spending time by the sea, in fact most of our family holidays are in tropical locations by the beach. My boys have never seen snow so I’ve been thinking I should take them somewhere cold for a change! Any ideas where? Don't forget to check IG stories to see what I am up to tonight!

What’s your personal mama style? Having been part of a fashion business over the last 10 years (alongside my mum and sister) at @luxe_fashion_boutique, I have seen so many trends come and fade away. I love classic and timeless maxi dresses which defines my style and personality. I also prefer to invest in quality pieces that will last the test of time. ⠀
