This was my second visit to The Watergarden, the last was over 20 years ago, and made a lasting impression on me. This time around, it was just as lovely. While on the main road the individual bungalows are set well back, and are placed so you not only have your very own lotus and koi filled pond, but privacy from your neighbours. The rooms are spotless and well equipped, and the verandas perfect for relaxing with a book and a beer. Great swimming pool, excellent restaurant, and very good value. Above all, wonderful people. Nothing was too much trouble, and they went out of their way to help us with our plans. We hope to return.

This is our third stay in The Watergarden Hotel in Candidasa. This time we spend 4 nights in this beautiful water- and garden palace. The always very friendly staff and the warm hospitality is special for The Watergarden hotel. The Balinese cottage's are situated in a oasis of gardens and pools. It is almost impossible to see the other accommodation from the veranda of a cottage. There is a great Orchid Spa offering a wide range of treatments. good. We had a special cooking class with the master chef. The hotel is situated on the main road through Candi Dasa and is a few hundred metres from the beach. Highly recommended and we would not hesitate to go back. The staff is always friendly and there service is very good.

This property is conveniently located in Candidasa and provides easy walking to many of the cafes and restaurants along the town. The staff we found to be very friendly and accommodating in the restaurant, check-in counter and all over the property. Unfortunately, the property itself is showing signs of wear and under maintenance. Overall it just felt depressed and neglected. Peeling paint and green algae in the pool, cracked tiles, patched up roofing, broken, falling over lights around our pool. Our bathroom door repeated fell off its hinges. If you are going to need to do any work that requires Wifi they only area that appeared to be capable of handling the bandwidth was in the restaurant area. This was the highest-priced places we stayed at while in Bali and was the poorest value. If it were not for the lovely staff I would have given less stars. They make up for a lot of its misgivings. I hope the owner puts some money into this place to restore it to what might have once been so the staff can be proud.

Thank you for your comments about our staff. I see you failed to notice that the restaurant was renovated in April this year, our swimming pool area is in the process of being painted now and we are renovating a room currently. I have looked at the swimming pool and found NO algae and no cracked tiles, maybe it was a leaf you saw in the pool or maybe you took a dip in one of our ponds!! One of our roofs does need renewing and we are waiting for the Alang Alang to grow before we can get it changed, as it takes about 2 months to grow and there is a shortage in this area for Alang Alang. Better a couple of temporary patches than a leaking roof, which I am sure you would have had joy in telling everyone about. I also checked the bathroom door and do not see how it fell off its hinges and it is fine now. Why did you not report this while you were here to our friendly staff? The light is broken and thank you for telling us so publicly and it will be replaced now. The internet is a problem locally and is painfully slow at times but this is beyond our control and other establishments in the area. The wifi will only be as fast as Telkom supply us. Best Regards Watergarden Hotel Team

The Watercarden is lovely. My room was large and beautiful. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the morning and the evening, and was shocked that there really weren't any mosquitoes. The hotel is walking distance to the beach, the lily pond, and many restaurants and shops. The restaurant on site was excellent for room service and dinner, and a standard breakfast is included. The specialty cocktails were excellent too. I also received a spa treatment including traditional massage and body scrub and thought it was excellent and an incredible value (I think about 2.5 hours of treatment for less than US $30). I did not stay long enough to find out but it seemed that the hotel could help with tours and activity booking, and I found the front desk very responsive when I had questions. I would definitely stay here, and go to the restaurant and spa, again.
