“temple cafe & cottages a wonderful restful place”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Hello ,
i recently stayed at Temple in candi dasa with 2 friends. The rooms were excellent andvery modern .
The outlook and garden setting was glorious. The manager was such anice person and her two little dogs were delightful.
The cafe was very good and although there is no pool we could use the pool over the road if we had lunch ..this was quite inexpensive too.
I could recommend this hotel to anyone and i am sorry we couldnt stay longer but next time we will

I have stayed at Temple Cafe and Sea view Cottages on numerous occasions.This was my first visit in over a year though.The staff are courteous and remembered me from before.If you are not on a serious budget pick one of the from sea view rooms.I was in 3B with the bed facing the ocean and a large window to enjoy the view.The seating area has improved to both dine and enjoy a drink and take in the ocean.True you will not find a golden expanse of beach but that is not the owners fault.Highly recommended and there are rooms to suit most budgets.

Room Tip: Front sea view cottages,3B my favorite.

Stayed here for 2 nights,

We got the standard room with hot water and AC. It was very cheap, only 22 euros for a small bungalow with a soft bed and a great shower, ( most showers in Bali have low water pressure but this one was great) It was clean wel maintained. If you spend more you get a larger bungalow and bigger shower.
the only thing that bothered me was that after a night of sleep I woke up completely blue, due to the bed sheets!
The breakfast was not included in the price, but it was not expensive and you can choose to eat elsewhere of course.
there was free wifi in the restaurant.


the surrounding was idyllic. you can eat at the seaside and some bungalows are placed faced towards the sea.
We did a tour to Besakih and the bat cave, It was not expensive and you can choose your own departure time.

the staff was friendly.

the only con was that you cannot swim near the cottages. Candidasa is more the place to explore the countryside of Bali. Therefore, Seaside Cottages is an great place to sleep.

This is the second place I have stayed at in Candi Dasa.

Seaside Bungalows is clean,neat and tidy.That is,after six years in Indonesia,enough to warrant a second look.

Inside the rooms the beds are comfy and the pillows are clean.There are three desks and chairs and tables on the nice ,large deck.

A nice ceiling fan in the room is a treat as it makes zero noise when running.For Asia this is extraordinarily welcome.

The bathroom is clean and all the interior and exterior is kept up and maintained well.

As a gardener I enjoy the variety of plants and flowers in the gardens.

All of the grounds are clean and tidy.

The staff are pleasant and there is really nothing to do but admire and enjoy the place.

The main road runs through Candi Dasa and is just outside the cafe entrance but the traffic slows down at night and the waves coming in provide a nice enough rest.

Of course,there is the ocean in front with quality deck chairs and tables set up to eat from the restaurant.

Really,it is a very clean,comfortable and affordable place to spend a few days-or more.

Room Tip: Get a room as close to the ocean as you can,The closer you are to the road (and main highway) the mo...

We stayed here 3 nights. From inside your room you can hear the waves crashing on the reef and rocky beach outside. Tasty breakfast available at the accompanying cafe: get the banana crepes.

I stayed here as diving base with my family, the room were are clean, the staff are helpful. The front is dedicated for caffe, so if you miss the sign it would be mistaken as just a caffe. The bungalow are in alley behind the caffe, with some place next to the beach. We took the standard room, with fan, ceiling fan that is, with no breakfast included. So if you want to take your breakfast elsewhere, there are plenty seller in walking distance, in fact just cross the road is a convenient store. The beachfront, is actually not at sea level, but at about 3-4 meter high from the sea (well this is the average condition in candidasa) with rocky based, which from there you can see small rocky island (mimpang and tapekong) . When we stay there, the wave are a little bit higher, so during the tide, it a little bit scary to walk at the shore where pounding wave on on side and a wall on the other. The good news is there are sandy beach about 50 meter to the right ( a good alternative for rocky beach)

Our garden view cottage with fan was wonderful! We were close enough to the ocean to hear the waves at night and see the water from our patio. The facilities along with the exceptional staff of the Temple Cafe made my first trip to Bali a huge success! And very reasonably priced too! The rocky beach in front of the Temple where we swam may not appeal to everyone but there is a sandy beach just around the corner.

Room Tip: A cottage close to the ocean is best.
