We stayed in the bungalows by the pool. These are equipped with air conditioning. Extra mosquito nets over the two beds. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. The furnishings are beautifully designed with bamboo and natural materials. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was very tasty and the service was hardworking and friendly. The place is quiet and beautiful, the pool is clean and you can snorkel well, almost right on your doorstep. We enjoyed the wonderful and affordable massages from Ketut Warni (+62 858 5775 0712).

Good Karma Bungalows’s has its own private beach, the sea is warm, the water clear and the fish and coral is spectacular! The restaurant on site offers a wonderful breakfast to get you started and amazing food and drinks thoughtout the day and night. The meals are amazing. See Wayan Wani if you want to hire anything, he and all his friends and everyone that works here are so helpful and lovely. The views, the atmosphere, the pool, villas, everything is spectacular. Don’t just stay for a few days, stay as long as you can, you can truly unwind, relax and enjoy a part of Bali that is still untouched. Simply beautiful

We stayed the first night in a beach hut next to the restaurant and under a huge, spreading tree. Very close to the sound of the waves and lovely thermos of hot water, instant Bali coffee, sugar and cups delivered in the morning. We then moved to one of the newer villas by the pool. Very relaxing and very clean. The outdoor bathroom is great , the two double beds are comfy and the aircon is useful. The shape of the bay means that waves crash near the shore. If you go to the southern end, past the pool, there are easy channels, cut for boats, to swim to the reef. Many jellyfish are floating about before breakfast and the fishing nets are out but a reasonably enjoyable snorkel. Go to Lipah Beach, 2 km north, to snorkel with children.

The three bungalows opposite the pool is the place to stay, the other villas and bungalows are amongst the trees and foliage and look a little dark and scary. The property runs along the seafront. Nestled amongst giant banyan trees. Lush green grounds. On entry a temple embedded into a banyan tree and bowls of fresh flowers floating in water. Bungalow is dated and bits and bobs are old and need some love and care. But you see the sea from your bed. And you can hear the waves crashing throughout the night. There is a kitchenette and outside bathroom. Restaurant has really tasty food with some Japanese additions. Breakfast is generous, a fruit juice and two mains, but a little bit of a let down as it’s western focused (pancakes, toasties that sort of thing) but not executed nearly as well as their local and Japanese food. Be great if there were some local options too. The pool was super clean and a hop skip and jump from the pool, a black sand beach (ouch watch out it gets hot hot hot). Ladies from now where appeared and give massage for 100k on lounger overlooking the waves. Snorkelling off the beach with coral reef.

Exactly as the name says Good Karma! We have travelled to Bali many times over the last 15 years and stayed in nearly every location and accommodation type there is, from luxury villas to beach shacks and everything in between. Good Karma is definitely our new family favourite. It offers everything that makes Bali so special just book it it's beautiful and the staff are gorgeous. I would give it 10 stars if I could. We will definitely be returning soon.

Good Karma is a place you keep coming back to. It’s atmosphere is very relaxed but caring, with the employees all local, extremely friendly and helpful. The traditional accommodation in the deluxe villas is our favourite but the newer villas by the pool offer a few more mod cons. You can watch the local fishermen from your balcony as they bring in their boats after a morning fishing, enjoy the very good snorkeling just off the shore, mix with the locals on the beach or laze by the pool. The grass hut rooms are all very shaded so there is always a place to get out of the sun. Good Karma offers one of the best breakfasts we’ve had, Good home made bread is a treat! The warung is also great for lunch and dinner if you don’t feel like travelling too far. It’s hard to find a place that ticks all the boxes like Good Karma. All this for an incredibly cheap price.

We stayed in a wonderful villa with two big beds and sofa, set 20m from the beach, overlooking the swimming pool. Beautifully appointed with lovely furnishings and comfy beds with mosquito nets. The aircon and fan worked well and we had our own Wi-Fi router, so excellent connectivity. We loved the little kitchen and outside shower, and spent much time chilling on our verandah overlooking the pool and sea. The bar and restaurant has 5G and serves good food. We really enjoyed the gentle Balinese guitar music sung on the beach by Wayan Wani and Putu and would highly recommend to management that they are taken on by Good Karma as lunchtime and evening music performers, there is no music in any of the local eating places so I'm sure it would be a big drawcard. They are really good! If you want a change of menu go to the nearby Green Melon warung who cook traditional Balinese fish dishes, or try Warung Dodo in the village down the hill. The beach here at Good Karma is perfect, with easy access to the pristine offshore coral garden for snorkeling and swimming. Be careful snorkeling at low tide as the coral is very close to the surface, make sure you stick to the sandy channels that the fishing boats use to avoid being scratched. Congratulations to Good Karma owner Baba who has a clean beach / no litter policy. Definitely this is one of the most natural, authentic beach hotels in Bali, away from the madding crowds. Highly recommended.

Beautiful bamboo bungalows set 10 steps from the beach and crystal clear water. If you're looking for traditional design the single and double bungalow's are great & only Aust$ 26- 40 per night including breakfast. Double bungalow's have 3 places to sleep ( out on deck, inside and up in mezzanine) All have mosquito nets and fans. Big spacious bathrooms. Beautiful tasty food inc Bali, Japanese and Western in rusterant. Massage on front deck, sailing trips in double outrigger canoes and lots of nearby places to eat. Villas also on site if you want more pricey. I stayed 5 nights and loved sunrises and whole experience. Each morning a big thermos of boiling water,tea, coffee is delivered to your deck to enjoy throughout the day . Selang beach is in quieter part so traffic noise almost zero. The beach has working fishermen who go out each morning then return round 7 am, great to watch the landing process. Covid impact has hit Amed coast hard 2020-21 and many families still struggling on tiny incomes of Aust $ 2-4 per day.

Great resort , offering various accomodation to meet your budget. We stayed in Pool villa . We have stayed here before. It has the best snorkeling right out the front of resort. Villa have a great view from your villa out to sea and we loved sitting in morning with our coffee and watching the fishing boats returning. Villas are large ,with a basic kitchen,including a full size fridge and drinking water available. Bathroom is outside , large with bath and shower and seperate toilet. Bed is comfortable and you have 2day beds one in room and one on verandah. Breakfast was good with a variety to choose from. We also ate lunch and dinner there on several occasions and was also excellent . Very clean and tidy and great value.We would recommend staying here. Staff were excellent and men that cleaned our villa did a great job. Just a recommendation, villas could do with renovation of bathroom , kitchen needs more equipment and somewhere to keep food,utensils etc away from gecko’s etc. Also hot and cold water in kitchen,our villa had no handle on tap and sink was dirty. Repainting of villa including bathroom would make a difference. We would readily recommend Good Karma bungalows and the restaurant.
