Message from the Chairman

With the Covid19 virus on everyone’s minds and on every front page, I thought it a good time to give my thoughts on the current situation. Karma Group is a hospitality company at the forefront of the holiday industry in Europe, India and Asia Pacific, in many countries that have been affected by the spread of the Corona virus. With travel restrictions, health warnings and isolation measures escalating every day, we are not alone in being greatly concerned about the events happening around us. However, we are prepared and ready to tackle the difficulties that are coming our way.

Karma Group’s Sustainable Designs Win Top ‘Rethinking The Future’
Architect Awards

We are honoured to announce P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S has won two prestigious awards for their sustainable designs for Karma Group projects for the 2020 ‘Rethinking the Future Architect Awards’ (RTF).

A First Prize Award in the hospitality concept category was granted to Karma Bequia, a sustainable resort proposed for Bequia island in the Grenadines Islands on Saint Vincents in the Caribbean. A Third Prize Award was for Stiff Chili [Karma Sanctum Bali], a proposed 40-suite sustainable resort in Uluwatu in Bali.

Says P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S Director Georgina Huljich: “Working with John and the entire Karma team has granted us the possibility to challenge our practice by integrating a genuine sense of local vernacular and pushing the boundaries of what represents the conventional. Both projects embrace the highest hospitality AND aesthetic standards framed by both Karma and P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S as brands, along with being unique and full of character.”

The annual ‘Rethinking the Future Architect Awards’ are given to projects showcasing excellence and innovation in architecture and design.

Adds John Spence, Karma Group’s Chairman. “Good architecture is a Vital part of creating a successful resort and is a passion of myself and the company. I am very proud that we have received these awards and want to congratulate Georgina and her team of extremely talented people.”

This year, 1500+ entries were registered from more than 50 countries, spanning architecture, landscape, urban design, product design, and interior design categories.

We can’t think of a better way to start your day than breakfast at Karma Kandara’s clifftop di Mare restaurant overlooking the Indian ocean. Chef Joseph’s newly devised menu consists of spa-inspired creations including gluten free quinoa pancakes, vegan almond milk bircher muesli with goji berries and a tropical fruit parfait with homemade coconut yogurt to name a few. If you need a little decadence then explore his playful variations of breakfast classics such as a Balinese Benedict made with bumbu cured pork loin which is smoked over coconut husks and topped with kaffir lime hollandaise.

Another highlight is the Baked Eggs Balado that is a local flavored play on shakshuka. All this plus daily health tonics served by Karma Group’s Jamu lady to get you vacation-ready for another day in paradise.
