About Villa Kalua
Villa Kalua is part of a 3 villa complex called The Blue Karma Resort. The villa is linked to its sister villas, Villa Ka and Villa Kayu by a small secret passage that can be used to link the three villas together if guests should wish to book the entire complex. The Blue Karma Resort makes use of an ethnic theme
with great attention paid to furnishing the villas in a truly traditional way. The villas are set in Umalas
, a short 10 minute drive away from trendy Seminyak.
Villa Kalua, the three bedroom villa
, is the the smallest villa on the complex and it features a large tropical garden surrounded by traditional Javanese Joglo houses
, completely crafted from antique teak wood. The ambience is certainly perfect for you to relax and enjoy the sweet tropical life on the island of the Gods.
Outdoor and pool area
A teak wooden gate guarded by traditional hand-crafted wooden statues
leads into villa Kalua, where you will be thrilled to see such as gorgeous and spacious private garden
for your usage only, like a hidden paradise
revealed to you and your loved ones. A bridge over a koi fish-pond leads into the villa's lobby, a Joglo that looks out onto the rice field that lies at the back of the estate as well as the stunning free-form swimming pool
and the manicured lawn of the garden, surrounded by lush tropical greenery and colourful flowers. Around the pool there are luxurious double day-beds
for sun-tanning and relaxing in the shade of a traditional Balinese parasol
. The Joglo's scattered around in the garden add to the ethnic and traditional feel of this amazing luxury villa.
