Karmagali Suites is located in Sanur, on the east coast of Bali, and is owned by French couple Magali & Fred. They opened the doors to this beautiful boutique bed and breakfast in December 2015. This B&B has 5 beautiful rooms available to stay in, each with its own unique Balinese style.

Every room has been specially named because of the decoration in the room. There’s Frangipani, Garuda, Timor, Rama & Sita, and Naga. The rooms are all spacious, each with a large bed that feels like you are sleeping on a cloud. And the bathroom is generous in size, with a his and her sink, a fantastic size rain shower and lovely smelling bath products.

Each room has its own outdoor lounge area, which is where you have your breakfast. It is also the perfect spot to lounge about in the afternoon, before taking a plunge into the swimming pool. Plus, the villa offers excellent Wi-Fi connectivity, which means you are still connected with the outside world and can share snaps of your time in Bali.

When I stayed at Karmagali Suites, every evening, no matter how full I might have been from dinner, I always looked forward to breakfast. The breakfast at Karmagali Suites is fresh, because everything is homemade – from the brioche to the bread to the eggs to the jams. Plus, they provide you with a great selection of teas and coffees – I mean not many hotels will let you choose the type of coffee you want. So the hardest decision in the morning for me was whether I was going to have a cappuccino or a black coffee.

And my favorite part about breakfast time – I could just slip out of bed in my PJs and sit down for breakfast. No need to figure out what clothes to wear and fight with the crowds at the breakfast buffet. It’s all personalised service here at Karmagali.

The pool is the main feature of Karmagali Suites – it is the Bali dream. I literally spent many afternoons just enjoying the sunshine whilst swimming in the pool. Surrounded by greenery, coconut trees and flowers, you really feel like you are in paradise.

The Verdict

Tips to Getting the Most out of Your Booking

  • If you are sensitive to street noise, then it is best to book the rooms Naga, Timor, and Rama & Sita
  • Karmagali Suites offers free bicycles that you can borrow. It is the best way to get around and explore Sanur – I particularly enjoyed cycling along the beach road in Sanur.
  • Try the French breakfast – I am in love with Magali’s brioche. It is fluffy with a perfect level of sweetness, and it pairs well with her homemade jams.
  • Now this is an absolute treat – you have to try Magali’s French cakes and pastries. Most days you will find Magali busy in the kitchen baking up a storm. And she uses only the best ingredients that she can find to ensure her pastries are of the highest quality. If you are the kind to only have dessert once in a while – then use your once in a while to try Magali’s dessert.
  • If you get sunburnt, try the after-sun massage. It’s a fantastic massage using aloe vera to help alleviate your sunburn.
  • Finally, if you want some tips on places to eat or see, just ask Magali & Fred.

  1. Great review! I went to Bali with my family many years ago, and stayed elsewhere, but I’m pretty sure we went there for a swim! I remember that amazing pool! We had the best time walking and swimming up and down it. It’s just beautiful! You’ve just about convinced me that I need to go back. When my kids are old enough to be left behind 🙂
