In the heart of Seminyak, Villa Karisa delights with charming comfortable rooms and a personal touch.

This gorgeous boutique hotel shares the entrance off Jalan Drupadi with their upmarket hostel Karisa Pods—park the (adult) kids there while you indulge in a little more luxury.

A lot of thought has gone into decorating the rooms here.

You are welcomed into a spacious wooden-floored, antique-filled lounge-lobby with soaring beamed ceiling hung with a cluster of white Vietnamese silk lanterns. This relaxing salon offers seating, communal dining and an open bar-kitchen. Beyond, a row of rooms edge a patch of lawn and a jewel-like swimming pool, bordered with greenery and culminating with a traditional wooden joglo-style room at the bottom of the garden.

Individually designed interiors are filled with carefully chosen furnishings and quirky accoutrements; this is all the style of a starred resort, but with more personality. Some rooms offer mozzie-netted four-poster beds, others are simpler, sans net (if you’re concerned about bugs, state your preference on booking). Amenities include both air-con and ceiling fans, and all rooms are equipped with filtered water dispensers (bring a bottle to refill). Deluxe rooms add a flatscreen TV and minibar.

Beautiful Balinese stylings at every turn.

Ensuite bathrooms offer hot-water rainfall showers with a tub in the joglo. Note that in some rooms the bathroom is more open style, so if you’re particularly modest, choose a different room.

Clever and thoughtful touches abound, such as a torch on a hook by the door for when you venture into the darkened streets at night (or when the power fails—despite the luxury, you are in a developing country, after all).

Take it easy, Karisa style.

The smallish but inviting pool is long enough for a refreshing lap, and when you’re done splashing about, grab a book from the library and relax in a poolside lounge or bale. Included breakfast and afternoon tea are served in the communal lounge, a sociable relaxing spot ideal for meeting other guests. Friendly and professional staff can help with any local inside info you require.

Villa Karisa is one of our favourite spots in Seminyak, but as it’s a small hotel with shared common areas, it may not offer sufficient privacy for some guests. For a more secluded and equally charming boutique style, consider Oallas Lifestyle Rooms in Umalas.
