The Karma Royal Group has recently announced the opening of their first Karma Retreat, Mayura, in Ubad, Bali

Opened on the 1st of July, 2015, the property sits on the fringes of a river in the picturesque island village of Mas and is the debut boutique resort for the company’s Karma Retreats brand. Nestled among coconut groves, rice terraces and an array of local temples, the inaugural resort offers travellers a bijou collection of  32 guest rooms, each with their own balcony giving sweeping views of the surroundings.

Harnessing the artisan culture of the area, each room incorporates traditional Balinese crafts including carved hardwood beds, and bespoke hand-crafted furnishings. The resort’s poolside restaurant incorporates an expansive outdoor terrace from which to view the  countryside and jungle which envelops the property.

“'Mayura' is the Sanskrit word for peacock, a bird sacred to Hindus and renowned for its spectacular physical beauty. It represents benevolence, kindness, patience and compassion and is believed to be an omen of good luck. It is a fitting name for Karma Royal Group's very first Karma Retreat in Ubud,” says the company’s chairman, founder and CEO, John Spence.
