Groovemaster Hans Havenaar

Veteran music selector and all round music connoisseur Hans Havenaar (a.k.a. ‘The Dutch Touch’) is a legend in his native Netherlands and here at Karma Beach. Describing himself as a ‘groovemaster’ Hans expertly blends eclectic musical flavours from every era with a penchant for jazz in its myriad forms. For Hans, a music set is a true journey into sound and all the things it can make you feel. There’s nothing quite like hearing him spinning live on a white sand beach giving onto the Indian Ocean, with a signature Karma cocktail in hand!

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!


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.


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!
