Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

The staff at Puri Bagus are simply wonderful, there was nothing they wouldn't do for us. Krisna (the manager) was very informative and made us most welcome. Made Swasta was very attentive as were the rest of the staff. Food from the restaurant was excellent and the views spectacular. My first Balinese massage ever and one I shall remember. Thanks Puri Bagus we will be back.

Candidasa is such a beautiful and quiet town. You really get to enjoy the beach and its surroundings at Puri Bagus. You can't beat laying by the pool all day staring at the ocean and have access to a very private beach that you can swim at. Their are two down sides to this hotel. The beds are rock hard and the outdoor bathrooms are connected so you can hear your neighbor doing everything...showering, brushing teeth, etc. But you really can't beat the location!

My first stop in Bali and I couldn't have been more pleased. The property itself was beautiful, the room extremely spacious and clean, and the outdoor bathroom was a great surprise. Loved the fairly remote location/feel, though still walking distance from restaurants. Wonderful views of the bay. The spa experience was very good and reasonably priced. Staff was very helpful. Not a huge fan of the twin beds pushed together to make one large bed, but I'm not picky. I'd definitely stay here again.

I visited Puri Bagus for dinner last week with some local colleagues. We were very impressed by our surroundings and were given a guided tour of some of the villas, even though we just stopped by for dinner. The hotel manager Pak Krisna welcomed us and ensured we had a delightful evening. I understand that they have recently hired a new chef, in response to guest requests for more healthy food offerings. Our dinner was delicious and healthy. The Indonesian dishes were very 'clean' without the oily flavour you can find in many hotels. Some of the villas are under renovation, which is a good sign, that Puri Bagus is keen to maintain the high standard of its facilities.

I hope to return again soon to enjoy the quiet surroundings, lovely pool and enchanting view.

The Views are fantastic compared to the rest of the Island. It is the perfect place for that "some enchanted evening". The staff is wonderful beyond compair and the food is amazing! The villas are spacious and beautiful. The restaurants that are close by are fantastic! Do not hesitate to stay here, its amazing. I stayed here for 5 days and was never bored!

Room Tip: the rooms closer to the entry of the hotel have wifi

When you're choosing a hotel in Candidasa you want to get it right.

Firstly it's a very long way from the airport, around a 90 minute drive in good traffic. Then there's the town itself - small, beachless, lacking any major attractions but abundant in taxi drivers, bike hire pushers and people who will try to sell you their wares whenever you walk the streets.

Puri Bagus looks, on paper, to be the perfect spot for this kind of isolated getaway. It has a good pool, an acclaimed spa, a restaurant and decent villas. What more could you want?

My issue is not really with the hotel (though there are some issues) but with their determination to wring every last dime out of every customer.

They will pick you up from the airport - but the transfer is US$50, about 30% higher than the rate in the airport.

The spa is lovely but at 300,000 for a treatment it's about 150% higher than the spas in town and then charges 21% tax, versus their 10%

Ditto meals in the restaurants and drinks in the bar - all marked up considerably, all with more tax than anywhere else.

Late check out (despite the room being empty after my leaving) "Of course, just an extra $35"

So while it's pretty nice, it's also pretty pricey and it's just not worth the feeling that somehow you're being fleeced while you're here.

I loved the open air shower concept in the villa; and the little tented areas overlooking the sea.

I liked the dead cockroach that greeted me on arrival a little less (on the floor, right by the bed) And the door that would often lock and then refuse to unlock. The TV claims lots of channels but only really tunes to one of them. The mosquito coil machine that they gave me didn't work. All minor but if you're going to pick my pocket at least be flawless in your delivery.

So yeah, not a bad place to stay but the pervasive sense of 'what else can we overcharge him for?' left a bad taste in this traveler's mouth

Room Tip: choose a room close to the pool or reception areas as only these rooms have wifi access.

A beautiful hotel away from all the troubles of Kuta, great food, friendly staff, fantastic clean bungalows! Great views and pool, good massages and wellness. Do be aware though that that is all there is! Outside the hotel you will find restaurants and cafes and offers for a quick massage but nothing like Kuta and the prices obviously differ greatly to those in the hotel. A truly relaxing time.
