GOING IN DEEP WITH KARMA'S POOL PARTY


Karma Kandara are one of the longest running venues on the island when it comes to hosting music events and have continued to be one of the most respected over such a period of time as they continue to evolve and change what they do from year to year.

This year under the watchful eye of their Marketing guru the lovely Sabine as well as upping their game with some international acts on the horizon they are also hosting poolside events at both their flagship venues in Bali.

We managed to get Sabine to take some time out from her hectic schedule to answer a few questions regarding Karma Kandara and their plans for the short and long term future in 2019…

HEY SABINE, THANK YOU FOR TAKING TIME OUT FROM YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE TO ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS, TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BALI AND KARMA KANDARA IN PARTICULAR AND WHAT WERE YOU UP TO BEFORE THEN?

I’ve been in Bali for around 3 years now and have also been with Karma for around 3 years. Before that I was traveling quite a bit and living in Holland and the US for a while.

KARMA BEACH CLUB IS IN THE MIDDLE OF SOME QUITE MAJOR RENOVATIONS WE UNDERSTAND, CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THAT?

We are reopening a brand new hill tram this weekend with twice the capacity and an increase in speed which is a great addition for us. The future plans are to also build in a pool at Karma Beach which promises to be amazing once done.

SOME OF OUR FOLLOWERS MAY NOT BE AWARE OF THE FACT YOU HAVE ANOTHER LOVELY VENUE IN JIMBARAN, NOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE HOSTING EVENTS AT BOTH, TEL US ABOUT THAT LOCATION AND HOW IT DIFFERS FROM KARMA BEACH CLUB IN ULUWATU?

Yes at Karma Jimbaran we have the Bay, a lovely restaurant with a beautiful big pool where we’re now also hosting Karma Pool Parties every Sunday. I guess it differs from Karma Kandara in location and surroundings, The Bay is more tucked away with beautiful green lush surroundings.

WHAT WAS BEHIND YOUR MOST RECENT CONCEPT, THE POOL PARTIES AND WHAT CAN PEOPLE EXPECT FROM THESE WEEKLY HAPPENINGS?

At the pool parties people can expect extravagant 5 star pool party events accompanied by the best DJs for some good music, lavish food & drink specials & of course a whole lot of champagne. The Karma pool parties take place every Saturday at Karma Kandara and every Sunday at Karma Jimbaran.

WE UNDERSTAND YOU ARE NOW WORKING WITH SOME NEW PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF BALI WHO ARE SET TO BRING YOU SOME INTERESTING BOOKINGS IN THE COMING MONTHS AS WE LEAD INTO HIGH SEASON, ARE YOU ABLE TO TELL US MORE ABOUT THIS PLANS?

Yes we have a few awesome international artists and DJs coming up to perform at Karma Beach Bali over Easter and in the lead up and in high season such as Crazy P., Neil El Diablo Scott, Mike Allin & Ralph T., Scott Watson/The SunChasers, Jon Sa Trinxa, Ashley Beedle, Bert Bevans, Andrew James, Kelly Parkes & Mr. C. And more to be added to this.

WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE SPOT IN BALI FOR DOWNTIME WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING?

My favourite spot in Bali in my downtime would be the beach, the ocean & the waves. I love to go for a surf in my downtime.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE EVENT AT KARMA KANDARA IN YOUR TIME WITH THEM?

I’d have to say the Bestival after party, lots of good vibes, great music and great people.


AND FINALLY, SUM UP KARMA KANDARA IN THREE WORDS:
Beautiful, extravagant, fun.


Thanks, Sabine! We hope to see you at Karma sometime soon!
