“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

A huge thanks to the family and staff at Hotel Genggong. We had a lovely stay here in their bungalow right at the front, next to the pool overlooking the beach.
Absolutely beautiful room, (had a good giggle at the toilet), so well decorated and positioned.
Not far to the main road, I'm talking a three minute walk perhaps.
Managers spoke English very well (perhaps studied overseas??)
Stay here when you come to Candidasa and try to book in the bungalow.
Clean, friendly, great bathroom, comfortable bed.

Not that we have stayed in other places in Candidasa, but to be honest after our stay at Hotel Genggong, i wouldn't stay anywhere else! this is the loveliest property, and the staff are great! Small, secluded and gorgeous! the gardens are perfectly looked after, a great pool and the ocean out the front is clear(clearer than i saw in other tourist areas in bali), and with barely any people except the odd guy promoting his boating business.

Aldo(manager/owner) is lovely - super helpful, and makes sure that whatever he offers guest(be it airport transfers etc), is fair.

we stayed in a room on the top floor for 6 nights, and the floor to ceiling glass windows just absolutely made the room. nothing better than waking up to an ocean view and watching the sunset from your balcony.

you get way more for your money at this place, and would give it a 5 out of 5 star recommendation to anyone considering staying here. and if you're un-lucky enough to get sick while you're away, there is a great international and new medical clinic only 15mins drive away which provided great service.

Thanks for the great stay! - Lara and Dan

Room Tip: I'd say the rooms on the top floor are the best - the studio isn't that private, though is r...

We stayed at Genggong just for a long weekend over Easter. We booked directly through the Hotel website. The reservation was replied by a friendly email from Aldo, the MD and owner. He arranged for our airport transfer, which took about 1,5h.
Upon arrival we were really stunned by this place. We found a small place with a beautifully landscaped yard with I huge lawn area and the ocean just behind a concrete wall. There is also a nice eco pool area with a small jacuzzi. Genggong is one of the few hotels in Candidasa with an own narrow strip of sandy beach which also serves as a marina for local fishing boats and expands at low tide. Not even 20 meters out is nice and intact reef which is great to get an idea about Indonesian aquatic life. You just need a mask and snorkel. We saw a lot of fish and nice hard coral out there. If you are in for a boat ride, the local fishermen on the beach will be available pretty much any time to get you out.
Genggong has only 7 rooms which all have a porch and face the ocean, the main building is two story. The rooms with the even nicer view are upstairs. Our room was kept up nicely and had TV, DVD player, hot water maker and a safe. Needless to say, the room was spotless. Aldo or his wife arranged for our trips and massage sessions which were all very reasonably priced. Aldo gave us good hints what to see and what to take off the list. Due to the size Genggong and its very friendly staff you almost feel like being part of an Indonesian family. This is a very secluded place at the edge of paradise, the tranquility and value you are getting here is incredible.

Room Tip: Take an upstairs room for an even more stunning view.

My wife and I stayed here for several nights on two different occasions (we liked it so much we returned) in January, 2012. The onsite manager/owner couple, Aldo and Fransisca, are wonderful hosts, as are all their staff. One day Aldo overheard us planning our day and quickly offered to drive us at no cost to the traditional Bali village near Candidasa, an example of their gracious hospitality.
We stayed in an upstairs deluxe room in the new two-storey, six-unit building, with terrific views of the sea and well-kept grounds through our nearly floor-to-ceiling window and glass door. The seventh unit is in an adjacent cottage beside the salt-water swimming pool. Our well-appointed, environmentally-designed room (air-con, mini-bar, rain shower, TV, eco-toilet, plenty of hot water from solar panels) was kept sparkling clean and all fixtures were new and in great working order. Unlike many rooms we stayed in elsewhere in Bali, the room is well sealed to keep out bugs and ensure efficient use of the air conditioning system. The rate included a nice, though limited selection, a la carte breakfast.
This small, ocean-front hotel is located away from the noisy main street of Candidasa down a quiet street at the east end of town where the main road turns sharply northward, a short five-minute walk to the main strip of restaurants. The salt-water pool is well-maintained, clean and so inviting; we made extensive use of it. Also, Hotel Genggong is fortunate to be located on a regenerating black-sand beach – which means you can swim and snorkle right outside the hotel – something missing from many of the resorts here as a result of extensive erosion of the shore-line due to poor development in the past.
We highly recommend this place. We checked out many of the other resorts in Candidasa while walking around and nothing compares to it. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Any of the three upstairs deluxe rooms as they have the best ocean views. The one at the end of the...

Literally stumbled across this absolute gem when we left our previous hotel which was a real disappointment. This place is gorgeous, small (currently only 8 rooms) with the best garden and pool area of all the hotels nearby. The hotel has been recently renovated and the rooms are great - clean, modern, tasteful but still with a Balinese feel, not just a trendy room that could be anywhere. Great saltwater pool, never crowded with views, like the rooms, directly out to the beach and sea. Staff really nice and polite and intrusive. The owners say some more rooms are planned Sept 2012, so check if building work has begun. A great place, we enjoyed our 4 nights and only wish we had come here first. We will be back, as this place was everything we wanted - quiet, relaxing, peaceful and tasteful. The images on the hotel's own website are a true reflection of what to expect.

We enjoyed our four nights at this hotel - it represented great value. We particularly enjoyed the lovely pool and well kept grounds. The owner couple also added to the experience. There were some nice restaurants to choose from nearby in this quiet town.

Wonderful small hotel off the busy road thru Candidasa. Only spent one night but had a nice dinner in the outdoor seating area and good breakfast the next morning. Seaside pool is refreshing as is the jacuzzi. The beach has boats for hire to take you snorkeling should you choose. Excellent staff.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room near the pool; great views!
