This is our second stay here and again enjoyed it very much. We used the resort as our base to scuba dive in the area. We stayed in the upstairs, both pool and sea facing, 1 bedroom "imperial apartment". This stay was for 1 week using our Karma timeshare allocation. The apartment is very large, with a full kitchen, dining table, lounge area, large TV, a sound system, good size bedroom with a "bit too firm for me" king size bed, and ensuite with separate bath and shower. There is air conditioning in both the bedroom and main living area but it struggled a bit with the heat of the afternoon. A balcony with chairs overlooks the sea but does catch the hot afternoon sun as well. TV reception was poor, WiFi was average to slow. It was pretty quiet but I would imagine if you had a few noisy guests at the restaurant or pool it would be intrusive. Both the pool and restaurant were just a few steps downstairs from the apartment. The food in the restaurant was varied, reasonably priced by hotel standards and very tasty. The staff all over the resort were very friendly and helpful. There are a couple of local minimarts a short walk away as well as a few shops and several local warungs to eat at. The one a few steps away on the other side of the road next to the minimart was really good and cheap. We ate there several times (the 1kg fresh prawns cooked however you like, was yum). Glass bottles of fresh drinking water are provided in the room and you refill them as needed at a central refill station in the garden. The gardens are lovely and well maintained. There is occasional entertainment of an evening. There is a twice daily shuttle service to/from Candidasa town (about 10 minutes drive away) at 9-11am and 11am - 1pm. A late afternoon one would be useful. The spa/beauty services shack is small but the staff very accommodating and we had very nice massages (one of which we won at the trivia night - even better!). We would be happy to return…
The location of resort is amazing!!!!! Just in form of beach and u can hear and view waves anytime u want. Just sit in the balcony and forget all your worries.. Staff is also very helpful mainly the spa lady who came early specially for us as we were checking out.. it was very nice of her. Even the reception and restaurant staff are also very kind and helpful.. In one word our experience was - wonderful!!!! We will surely come again.
There is currently a free shuttle in to Candidasa at 9 and 11am with only a 2hr window. It would be be if you could be collected when you are ready. It would also be great if the free shuttle ran in the evenings as well
From the time you arrive until your departure the staff can not do enough to make you feel like family. It's a great location to do any type day trip or just hang out and listen to the ocean and relax.
The most welcoming and hospitable resort in beautiful Bali. Right on the ocean with a beautiful pool and staff that attended happily to your every need. We will return sooner rather than latter. Thanks Karma Royal Candidasa for a most memorable holiday.
