Karma Resort (Official Artist Accommodation)

Karma Group’s award-winning flagship Bali resort, Karma Kandara stands as a testament to the singular will and vision of Karma Founder and Chairman, John Spence. Gracing a verdant clifftop along Bali’s coveted ‘Millionaire’s Row’, and often the resort of choice for celebrities, Karma Kandara epitomises the style of laid back luxury the Island of the Gods is so famous for. Designed to bring the allure of Bali into the room through every line and curve, the resort’s spacious one to four bedroom pool villas nestle along the clifftop, with many villas holding a commanding view of the azure Indian Ocean.


Religion is devoted to the pursuit of individual style; lyrical quotes, musical muses and British heritage have always been heavy influences behind each collection. Inspiration from London’s east end and international street culture has been integral in shaping the brand’s much loved signature style.

Established in the early 90’s Religion firmly rooted itself to early club culture; when music was chemically inspired and beliefs were publicly expressed on statement tees. Initially developed as a niche t-shirt range, Religion’s blend of anarchic graphics and commercial attributes has pushed the brand to the forefront of the fashion and media spotlight. Its ‘no fear’ policy of experimenting with design techniques, washes and trends has given the brand its diverse appeal: distressed garments with a rock star edge.
