3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I didn't see any beach bungalows - I would classify it as a guest house. The positives first: beautiful setting overlooking the sea, beautiful gardens, lovely staff and the sea breeze coming off the sea is a blessing on steamy days. The pool is ok too and you can just step down to the beach.
I had a very basic room and the bathroom was just grimy. I asked them to clean it more thoroughly but that didn't make a difference. Also the shower just dribbled and the hot water was fickle. So if you don't mind roughing it with some comfort then this place would be good. Having said that, I saw some of the other rooms and they were of a better standard. Nevertheless most bathrooms were plagued by mould.

Room Tip: Check the room before you move in.

We stayed at Puri Oka for 3 days before going over to Gili Islands from Pandan Bai.
The first night our room was OK, it had air conditioning and hot water but
the bathroom door wouldn't close and it was a bit dark.
They moved us to another room for the last two nights and it was much better..
The staff were very good and helpful, the meals were very reasonably price.
The view is amazing, the pool was OK.

They stored our bags for us while we went to Gili Island for a while and came back
to another good room and stayed for another 3 nights.

Free WiFi until 9:30 PM (??) and had a few problems with it.


They have various standards of rooms/bugalows, with/without air conditioners as well
as family units. They are competitively priced.
They have 2 amazing villas next door with 3 bedrooms each with en-suites, very new with great
views and very western.
The two scooter I hired from the hotel were the best I have had in Bali.

The real test- I'd stay here again.

Things to do:
1) Padang Bai & Blue Lagoon
2) Ujong Seraya & Tirta Gangga Water Palaces.
3) Pantai Putih (White Sandy Beach) - Compared to little beach at high tide at Candidasa
Snorkeling in the SE of the bay.

Looking at the map it would be possible to do the Safari Park, but did not go there.

We stayed in the standard room, checked out after one night.Have travelled a lot and this room we found equivalent to staying in a three or four dollar room in India.The bathroom was filthy and fixtures broken and disgusting.The door has a large gap of about 10mm in it so when you have your light on there goes your privacy.Room full of termites.......we paid for a mid range resort and yet the room is well below what we expected.
To be fair the staff are very nice and the restaurant serves good food ....the restaurant is priced for the mid range traveller.
The pool is ok old and a bit on the dirty side.
hope this helps.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

Visited here for 1 night last year as was highly recommended by some friends. Returned this year for 2 nights but once we arrived wished we had have booked for much longer. We have fallen in love with this place. The staff are fantastic, the food is great and the view is to die for for. My husband had one of the local fisherman take him out fishing for the morning and came back with lunch. The staff at Puri Oka cleaned and cooked the fish and served it with some Balinese salad and chips. It was sooooo good. If you want 5 star with the works you won't find it here but if you are after basic, clean accommodation for a good price it may be the place for you. There are not a million other tourists to contend with which makes it a lovely place to relax, unwind and enjoy the views or some of the local attractions such as fishing, diving and snorkelling. We've already booked to go back...this time for much longer. Can't wait.

We spent 5 perfect days in Ocean Wild Villa in March 2012. People are very kind, food is good, ocean and massage every day. I recommend everyone to go to Candidasa and stay in Puri Oka. Master bedroom is perfect!

Puri Oka has simple, basic accommodation right on the beach.
There is a protected area to swim in front of the hotel- lovely.
Staff are friendly and always willing to help. There is free wifi at the beachfront restaurant.
Very peaceful and very cute.
Staff are happy to help you organise transport into Candi Dasa, trips to White Sandy Beach, snorkelling and transfers.
If you need a break from the rat race and are happy with basic, friendly accommodation then this is for you.
