WHEN IN BAVARIA…

Don’t miss the opportunity to book in for a facial treatment with the amazing Heike Lehner. I’ve travelled the globe and have been fortunate to experience many facials delivered by some of the best and both Heike’s Sculpting Facial and Face Hydration Booster are amazing. She is a true artist when it comes to lifting, toning and sculpting the skin - expect to depart looking years younger!

WHEN IN INDIA...

Ayurveda is the spirit of Indian spa culture and I can’t recommend highly enough an Ayurvedic treatment (or any massage for that matter) with our Indian Senior Therapist/Trainer, Vipin Kakkove, who originates from Kerala, the birthplace of Ayurveda. Vipin is one of the most passionate and integral therapists I’ve worked with - and a favorite with our members. So impressed were we with his dedication to his work that we sent him on a jet plane to both Bali and Bavaria to partake in our key training - we are blessed to have him on our team.

WHEN IN BALI…

Karma Kandara was our first spa to open back in 2008 and remains our flagship and this cliff-top spa holds a sacred place in my heart. The entire team here is phenomenal as they undergo year-round training with the island’s best healers, practitioners and massage experts. While it’s impossible to name my favorite therapist, my treatment pick is the signature Karma Rhythm Massage that focuses on back, neck and shoulder - and is a cure-all for anyone like me who spends too many hours on the laptop. Add on an Infrared Detox Session and you’ll be sorted out in no time!

Simon Shaw Fitness Tips

England World Cup Rugby Legend, Simon Shaw, shares 3 key fitness tips:

Use the Buddy System

Find a friend or relative whom you like and trust who also wants to establish a healthier lifestyle. Encourage one another. Exercise together. Use this as an opportunity to enjoy one another's company and to strengthen the relationship.

Be Happy

Be sure to pick an activity you actually enjoy doing! If you hate weights, don't go to the gym. You can lose weight and get in shape with any type of training or activity.

And choose something that is convenient. Rock climbing may be a great workout, but if you live in a city, it's not something you'll be doing every day.

Nutrition is Key

Exercise with a balanced nutrition plan has been repeatedly shown to improve muscle strength, boost lean mass, and slash body fat. Both the research and the real world evidence has borne this out time and time again. Exercise alone just won't cut it. Saying this, do not deprive yourself of things you like to eat and drink. I work to a 80/20 plan. Eat and drink sensibly for 80% of the time and do as you like for the other 20%!

Karma Beach DJ Hans

Dutch DJ Hans calls his unique sets for Karma ‘travelling through music’ because his personal collection of tracks has touch points in every sound and genre. His cool, mellow style is the perfect soundtrack to the Karma Beach scene, where the vibe comes from unique live entertainment and where the beats get stronger and the bass deeper as the night goes on.

‘I call myself a groove-master because music is not a hobby or a job; it’s my passion,’ he says. By popular demand, DJ Hans plays at Karma Beach events throughout the summer.
