Karma Memories

“Being Fractional Owners of Karma Group affords us opportunities to gather family from all over, to some of our favorite Karma vacation locations!”

What an incredible year it has been with new properties opening, plenty more of our beloved resorts reopening and an increase in Members getting away on international holidays!

As 2022 grows ever closer, we are looking back on the fantastic memories that our Members, Owners, and Guests have shared and looking forward to what 2022 will bring…

Here are a few of our favourite #KarmaMoments from the past few months!


Mr and Mrs Yelamanchili – Karma Group Members Since 2013

Our First stay in our very owned(Fractional ownership) 1 BR unit was very pleasant and Memorable indeed specifically because:

  1. This was eventually materialized after 2 postponements/cancellations over 2 long years, due to the Pandemic.
  2.  This Visit to Royal Haathi Mahal is our 5th time since 2014 but the special 28th Anniversary of Karma celebrations, special attractive full/half board food package offers, member discounts on Spa etc. all made our fully relaxed stay more delightful.
  3. Our visit this time is First in December month with almost packed and buzzing all the time.
  4. Special thanks to Mr. Keith Smith and his team in making our checkout more comfortable.

Mr and Mrs Williams – Karma Group Members Since 2015

Not breaking with tradition we are celebrating Christmas and the New Year with some of our adult children and grandchildren in Thailand.   We fully own this tradition as we have spent over 20 years living and working in different parts of the world and now retired living 1/2 the year in Asia and the other 1/2 in the USA.

Being Fractional Owners of Karma property in Bali is such a good fit for our family.  It affords us opportunities to gather family from all over to some of our favourite Karma vacation locations.  This Christmas and New Year will be no different.  Seven of us will fly into Koh Samui in Thailand and enjoy the Karma property shortly after the new year.  We can’t wait to make new memories together in the new year.  We have much to celebrate coming through these last two years of limited to no travel.

Our Christmas and New Year’s wish for our family and extended Karma Family is that everyone will be safe travelling and enjoying time spent together creating lifelong memories and soaking up all Karma has to offer in 2022 and beyond.

The pictures attached are of our Thailand family celebrating the Christmas and New Year Holidays with us in Vietnam a couple different years.  While there we traveled and stayed at the Karma property in Hoi An.

All the best,

Don and Kathy Williams.

It’s not that you always connect with your blood relations alone. Humane gifts of humanity and loving hospitality also bind you and cement your relationship equally.

I’d say there is something about Karma Royal Palms Goa that envelopes us in its warmth. It beckons. We come here as many times as a holiday in Goa is planned. We have just returned after a 4-night stay from 10th Nov to 14th Nov 2021 after a fulfilling holiday.

The warmth of the people there engulfs and lingers.

With a heart full of gratitude, my husband, Ved Prakash Saxena, and I both extend heartfelt thanks – to the staff at reception, restaurant, and housekeeping who provided service with kindness, concern, love,and smiles.

While booking, I had requested to allot us the ground floor 1BR apartment because of our current health issues as my husband had undergone a stent implant, and I had developed terrible knee pain. Karma could have just been quiet, but it was such a warm gesture when one of their navigators phoned me. He asked about our health and assured us of this needful concern. I should have remembered his name to thank him appropriately through this note. I apologize.

A day before our flight, I was a bit worried, what if the ground floor is not available! I called up

the reception. Ms. Nayan assured me that they would take care of the notified request. It won my trust in Karma leadership. These little things bring comfort and undoubtedly fuel strong bonds. I also thank Ms. Ruella and Ms. Nayan both for a lean and mean check-out.

Today when I logged in to book a resort, I found another human dimension of Karma Group. It melted my heart. I just found it under my membership profile. They have been so kind to consider the repercussions of the pandemic and bestowed enough time frame to utilize our points. It is a much- appreciated move as one can’t travel for an extended duration and in quick succession – merely to avoid points lapse.

We salute you for this in-depth member concern. We wish that members notice such minute details of their service above self and share their joy with friends to bring them into the KARMA family.

On your 28th anniversary, we wish you an ever-rising membership and multiple expansions.

My holiday letter would be incomplete if I do not share the most joyful family moments that bring me and my husband very close on a holiday. It is when he treats me like a QUEEN! Voila!! He does things that he normally wouldn’t – like making my morning tea for me, going for a walk with me, and obliging me with as many pictures as I wish even though he is the one who is not at all camera-friendly – in front and behind both. And, that adds to the fun!


Don’t forget, there is still time to submit your Christmas Traditions! What are your Christmas ideas this year? Do you have a recipe you’re eager to share,  a homemade decoration everyone must see, or maybe something you do in the community / for charity that will warm our hearts? – There are no bad suggestions.

We will choose our favourites from the submissions and the top 3 will win a $100 voucher.

Please send your entries to karma.odyssey@karmagroup.com

Our favourites and the winners will be showcased on December 20th – Good luck!

    1. Thank you for being part of our Karma family, Mr. Desai! We are thrilled to be part of so many of your wonderful holiday memories. We hope you can soon visit some on the newer Karma Group Resorts and experience more of our attention and hospitality!
      Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones from all of us at the Karma Group!

  3. We just returned from Udaipur. Our stay at Karma Seven lakes was really memorable. The rooms are excellent and the staff is very courteous. Stayed there for 5 nights. It is very close to the heart of the city and hence it was very easy for us to explore Udaipur conveniently. Thanks to Karma, we had a wonderful vacation.

  4. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable Christmas week for us. I had requested for a ground floor apartment in Hathi Mahal, which was my 4th visit. My request was fulfilled partially. Could not get ground floor villa, but was not far away from the Reception area. We are members since 1997. We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas at Hathi Mahal. Thanks to hosts of people starting with Ireane and Rupal from Marketing ( I hope), who helped us out through our entire stay 20th till 26th evening. Then there was a cute little lady at the Banquet hall, where usually buffet’s are served helped us on all days including Christmas eve dinner and thereafter, my apologies to her for not remembering her name. Lastly but not the least, two cute little young ladies at reception counter Banu and Rochelle, they are ever around for everything. Even our son Satyanarayana Rajaram joined us on 23rd night around 11pm, who in fact enjoyed the best. Thank you very much for the excellent welcome and checkout in a jiffy and allowing us to stay for a delayed check out on 26th December.
