There isn’t an island on earth quite like Bali – and there’s nothing quite like experiencing the festive season here – especially when you book your holiday in Bali with Karma! From December 23rd through January 4th, Karma Kandara in Bali celebrates its now iconic 12 Days of Karma – the biggest festive programme on the island. From top notch culinary offerings, international DJs and extravagant beach parties to family yoga classes and indulgent spa rituals here are 8 reasons to bring yourself (and family and friends) to celebrate Christmas in Bali this year…
Most of us feel better around nature – and that’s something Bali has in spades! Iridescent rice terraces, soaring volcanoes, beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean. From mountain biking to trekking, white water rafting to cultural encounters – Bali has a myriad outdoor activities to offer. And Karma Kandara is home to one of the best beaches on the island – the award winning Karma Beach. Karma Jimbaran meanwhile is situated in Jimbaran Bay, famous for its fish markets and incredible sunsets. The ingredients for an unforgettable Bali holiday!
EXPERIENCES OVER GIFTS
Does the focus on things over experiences get you down at Christmas? The relentless focus on consumption? You won’t find that in Bali – another great reason to whisk your family away to paradise island, where it’s all about experiences and connecting. And we can guarantee you’ll all remember your Bali holiday long after the gifts have outlived their usefulness!
SPA LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW
Bali is regarded as the spa capital of the world and with good reason – Balinese therapists are simply the best at their craft, since massage and physical therapy is woven into the culture This year, we’ve put together a host of incredible spa and holiday packages to keep you fit, rejuvenated and glowing from the inside and out – all curated by our highly trained therapists and teachers. We even have an Intuitive Healer on-site for Tea & Tarot Readings plus a pop-up Hangover Remedy Bar for recovery and hydration therapies… return home feeling healthier than when you arrived!
KEEP YOUR FAMILY FIT
Bali is also known as the yoga capital of the world. We believe that nobody is ever too old – (or young!) to stretch, breathe and move. Returning this year to Karma Kandara is our Yoga Ambassador, Ola Lirka, who will be leading twice-daily yoga and other themed classes. You can book in for couples/partner yoga with your loved one or friend as well as mother and daughter yoga and even a group class for your entire family.
NEW YEAR’S EVE GROOVE
Hands down this is going to be the most colourful New Year Eve celebration on the island. At Karma Kandara, we’re putting on a spectacular circus show with a troupe of dancers, acrobats and more. Our International guest DJ’s, Pete Gooding (UK, Ibiza), John Sa Trinxa (Ibiza) and Glaswegian house duo, Silicone Soul (UK), will be heating things up at di Mare and Karma Beach so don’t be surprised if you find yourself dancing barefoot under the stars till the wee hours to ring in the new year…
WE’VE GOT A KIDS CLUB!
As well as our 2, 3 and 4-bedroom luxury pool villas that house families and groups of friends, Karma’s ‘3 Monkeys Kids Club’ is so much more than your typical babysitting service. This year we’re hosting a full menu of fun and educational activities for the kids including treasure hunts, arts and crafts, holiday games, magic shows, Balinese dance, Zumba and more – such a great way for kids to connect with other kids from all over the globe under the watchful eye of our staff – while you get to do some of the other things you love.
Karma is aligned to the Bali Life Foundation that is dedicated to providing love and care to the disadvantaged children of Bali. On Tuesday December 24th at Karma Kandara, we invite guests to join us for the Christmas carols sung by the kids from Bali Life as well as donate IDR 300k to our Christmas Tree initiative which will be used to purchase gifts for the kids…
