Bali Blue Karma Hotel 

 Dawn and I both enjoyed our stay.The staffs were very helpful and professional. As the owner of the hotel is a French artist, she has an Art Gallery that showcases and sells her art pieces. We love her work and bought a couple of her painting and ornament that we found in the room. Everything was so beautiful that we cannot stopped myself from shopping.
