Karma Kandara, Uluwatu-Bali. OK, what should I say about this most stunning luxury villa in Bali. All the prestigious hi-end printed and electronic media coverages have said enough about this spectacular place situated on the cliff top of the Bukit Peninsula, southern of Bali. I was proud to be part of BALISTARZ-the finest event company in the island-team organizing the Grand Opening Party on March 2008, where Emmy & Golden Globe winning Hollywood actor, Jeremy Piven, from the hit series ‘Entourage’, international supermodel Kristy Hinze and GQ editor Grant Pierce were among over 500 VIP guests from Bali and beyond who joined in the festivities that carried on through the night to meet the dawn ! And the only event in Bali with Hannah, the gorgeous mermaid swimming across the ocean from Australia to Karma Kandara private beach to wow us and entertain us with her underwater moves !
While most Balinese doing their monthly religious ritual in temples, Saturday, 9 May 2009, this time I went to Karma Kandara as a guest on their Full Moon Party at NAMMOS Beach Club – voted as the Best Beach Club 2008 by Hello Bali Magazine-well, actually I was accompanying Bart who was there on a photography assignment from his boss. We don’t usually go out clubbing in the evening,as it is an activity that truly made me sleepy…zzzz….and yawned many many times….and I did! Dunno why, why being in a place with minimum lighting, at 10pm which is my bed time 🙂 and had to listen to this house-or whatever it is-music from DJ Pee Wee Ferrisfrom Sydney that says : come on…come on..come on….like 50 times really drove me mad….LOL.
That is why trying their Karma wooden fire pizza, Calamary ring with that lemon mayo sauce, sipping their signature cocktail and fun drinks such as : Passionata, Karma Jungle Juice, Karma Colada felt more entertaining to me than dance and mingle…hehe…we’re allowed to be different and have our own taste and preference, right?
Finding Menu @Nammos…
There were not much people attending to this party as expected. I heard another Full Moon Party were being held nearby in one of Bali’s latest leisure spot (you know where – don’t feel it necessary to ‘promote’ this ‘tragic’ place) and only one ‘gang’ from Karma team continued their dance the night away to NAMMOS.
This place is amazzzing, indeed..you should check out these photos that BALISTARZ team made on the Grand Opening Party on March 2008 aforementioned. Not only their only access via private inclinator that carries up to 5 guests 100meters up and down the cliff is already the fun part of the visit, but the white sand beach with blue turquoise water, daybeds, private pavilions, and its own lagoon where you can go with their kitchen staff to catch your OWN seafood will made your tropical day. I would personally go to NAMMOS in the afternoon and enjoy the sunset cocktail (although it’s not the perfect spot to enjoy a perfect sunset) after.
The Full Moon that night was sometimes covered by the clouds, but its reflection to the sea gives a true romantic setting..too bad Bart was working he had to leave me sitting alone enjoying the beach by night and delicious dinner, courtesy by Espy & Clinton (Terima Kasih!) 🙂
No offense to DJ and house music and those sometimes silly dance after several cocktails maybe spirits, but I imagine this place would be much better to enjoy with my family and friends, chill out music or other easy listening music,enjoying Karma signature cuisine.
