I have travelled around the world and stayed in many types of accommodations. The Dafish was the most pleasant stay I have had to date. The islands have a village vibe and everyone is so friendly and helpful. I have never felt safer on a holiday. The food was delicious, I stayed at the Dafish for 7 days. Getting there is an adventure in itself. From the airport to the boat launch, on the scooter and over the yellow bridge, I was well looked after and enjoyed every minute of my holiday . Thank you Sentana. Yogi and Putu, and the rest of the amazing people there. All the staff were so welcoming and helpful. The grounds were beautiful. I loved the Bungalow. I will definitely stay here again and make it an annual stop for me on vacation.

Nestled on the picturesque island of Ceningan, The Dafish offers a tranquil and unforgettable stay. The warm pool, surrounded by lush greenery, provides a serene oasis for relaxation. Impeccable customer service ensured that every aspect of our stay is perfect, with dedicated staff, Dana & his family, going above and beyond to make us feel valued. The restaurant delights with a variety of flavors, from local specialties to international dishes, creating a memorable dining experience. I, personally, think the chef is one of THE BEST chefs there ever is. The private cottages and bungalows exude rustic charm and provide a comfortable retreat. Additionally, the hotel offers a range of exciting activities such as snorkeling trips, fishing trips, and even guided tours to nearby Nusa Penida, enhancing your experience and allowing you to explore the natural wonders of the area. I highly recommend talking with the hotel to organise these trips instead of doing it with outsiders! Whether you seek relaxation or adventure, this hotel is the ideal destination for an unforgettable getaway. 100% recommended and we will be back again! P.s. even if you’re not staying here, you HAVE TO come eat lunch Zoe dinner here, the food is AMAZING!

Second time staying here. Still have the same amazing and friendly staff. Can’t say enough good things about the staff. Also run King of the sea snorkelling trips (highly recommend). Grounds are beautiful with lots of trees and flowers. Rooms are unfortunately dated and air conditioning is not great. Small fridge in room but no bottle water or coffee/kettle. Also only provided pool towels, no bath towels or hand towels in bathroom. Bathroom is part open and showing it’s age. Have a safe in the room but it’s not attached to anything. Pool area is nice but pool was so dirty we did not use it. Breakfast included was simple but very good. Close to restaurants and blue lagoon. Great prices but very rustic.

The Dafish Ceningan was such a nice break for us. As a family traveling for a long time and with two little girls we needed to slow down for a bit. Ceningan can be the perfect spot for this - but Dafish is also a great location for a snorkeling/diving/surfing holiday. Dana and the rest of the Staff made us feel like home. In general people are very kind and real on this little gem of an island. We loved to relax by the pool and have slow breakfast in the common area. The smoothie bowl was superb! The location is perfect for visiting secret beach point and blue lagoon. We will come back again some day.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Management and staff were all accommodating to my whims and sudden schedule changes. Nothing seemed impossible for them to arrange. Seems odd to say given the weather but consistent hot water was a win. The bungalows are situated so it doesn’t seem like you’re on top on the next person. No ocean views, but honestly except for one specific bungalow on a close by property did you have this (in this price range) Great value for money.

My stay at Dafish was amazing! I stayed in the Standard room with my friend. The room has high ceilings, which makes it feel quite spacious, even though the huge, comfy bed takes up most of the room floor. They have the essentials: mosquito net, air conditioning, a fan, towel. And other things like a tv that we didn't use. The bathroom is outdoors, very nice!! Everything was clean, the service was fantastic. The staff are very attentive. The pool is very nice with lush greenery everywhere, and a treehouse that you can see the ocean from. Loved my stay at Dafish. Would recommend!!

We booked our trip well in advance and we were on a bit of a budget, but we got so much more and ended up having an amazing trip. Da Fish had it all. They organised our taxi from the airport, our ferry across, our taxi to yellow bridge and our taxi to the hotel. The had scooters we could rent and they even have a boat that does all the fishing and scuba trips including Crystal Bay and the manta dive. All of these were cheaper than on the main strip where the majority of tourists hang out. All of the people who work here are connected trough family or friends and were born and raised on the Island. They knew everything and could help us no matter what we asked. For the price we paid we had really nice accommodation. There was air-conditioning, a decent shower, nice bed, fresh water delivered every evening, and decent electrical plugs. There are nicer rooms with your own porch and they are building more accommodation so definitely keep an eye out for this place. I suggest trying to stay with them asap because they will become very popular in the future as they grow. They have a pool with a poolside bar, they do make breakfast and will make you food pretty much any time of the day if you asked them. They do sell beer and one or two spirits as well as bottles of water. One BIG plus for me is that they had normal coffee because I did not develop a taste for the Bali coffee. We did not eat that much at the hotel as we were out most of every day so I can not advise on food, except I did have a local dish one afternoon and it was on par with what I had on the rest of the island just with a bigger helping. They have a shop across the road and a place to fuel up. If you do get stuck with out fuel, Mr Dana comes to your rescue with some emergency fuel. In the morning just before the sun came up, I had a leisure stroll down to the local surf spot to dip my toes, it was the best time of day where you could watch the village wake up with all the smells and sounds of Indo, not a single car or scooter in site. We had the best insider information for surf spots and surf conditions, local places to visit, best places to buy drinks and curios as well as best places to fish or just chill on the beach. There are a few gems if you are up for a bit of exploring. We left early because we had an invite to another experience and were so happy that they could sort out all our arrangements. It was last second and they helped us every step of the way to the doorstep of our next adventure in Ubad. They literary waited with us for our taxi and ferry, helped organise our bags and even helped getting our rentals back to their homes. We used them for our snorkelling trip. Again we were picked up outside our rooms, taken to the boat and did the whole trip back to the hotel with out hassle and with them organising everything for us. The captain helped us navigate a mass of crazed tourists to get a glimpse of the manta-ray and got us all the best spots for the snorkelling. He also had hes own GoPro we could borrow after mine decided to bow out. Everything is close to them, including a good surf spot, cliff jump and a few bars and restaurants. It is far enough from the crowds so you can walk down the road at night or early morning and really feel the village come alive around you with out all the craziness of a hundred rude tourists around. I would like to say please be patient, everyone speaks a fair amount of English but many tourist get upset if there was a bit of a communication breakdown. Explain what you want and try to illustrate it if you are on a phone or via email. They are very humble and outgoing people, so if you are friendly and patient you will be rewarded for it. This is not a luxury Hilton lodge, there are bugs in the trees and the birds will chirp in the morning(if you get my drift). For the very cheap price we paid it was a castle. The people of Da Fish will go above and beyond to make their home yours, if you want to have a truly authentic Bali experience, including a few comforts, go visit them. they have everything you will need and if they don't, they will normally organise it. Thank you everyone for a unforgettable experience and sorry for drinking all your coffee:)
