“Beautiful surroundings - Average Rooms”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The grounds and communal areas of this hotel are lovely. The site is clean and attractive and the staff are generally attentive. The pool is peaceful and the food in the restaurant is good (although restaurant staff are sometime keen to set up for breakfast before you have finished your dinner). Some of the rooms, however, are of a lower standard and it is clear that while money has been invested in the higher priced bungalows the same investment has not been put into the hotel rooms. Our room on the first floor was shabby and the bathroom décor was dated and dirty. The biggest problem was the smell from the drains. Although the hotel staff tried to mask the problem with air-freshener it was evident that a significant piece of work is required to rectify the problem in the long term.

Room Tip: The bungalows are newer.

We used the Rama as a recovery after a flight from London and before going to the Gili Islands! It was very relaxing, lots to do if you want to and the staff very attentive and welcoming! We had a nice room and all the facilities are very well kept! The restaurant was very good with a very nice breakfast selection and a good evening meal! Highly recommend!

Room Tip: I cant add a good room tip but I feel sure from my experience that whoever books here will be happy!

Upon check-in we received already a pleasant surprise to be upgraded to one of their bungalows. They are spacious and have a nice terrace in front. The room inside is a little dark but has a good bed and nice & clean en-suite bathroom. Their breakfast has a splendid spread and an unobstructed view over the sea. We had one time a good dinner with a cultural performance at the same time. For lazing around there is a good sized pool with adequate number of “beds” around to enjoy.

Room Tip: When you stay longer and can spend some more, take a bungalow in the front row overlooking the sea.

Candi Dasa a lovely place to go for a few days to relax & the Rama overall did not let us down. The hotel was excellent value for money with all facilities above average. The restaurant menu had a good range with fantastic outlook. Prices were typical Bali resort prices so if wanting a cheaper meal there are plenty of excellent restaurants only a short $2 taxi ride into town. (Would recommend a visit to Vincents) We would definitely suggest an upgrade to a beach bungalow as although the superior rooms were ok they were what we would say as 3 star. The day spa was one of the best I have visited in Bali, good value and facilities. A real stand out was the swinging day beds looking out over the ocean however the pool staff let us down due to lack of service & attention.

Room Tip: Beach front bungalow a must!

Loved being at the Rama at Candidasa, Unfortunately spent only 3 nights there, Would have love more We were totally happy and relaxed there.
Would love to have my Honeymoon there but unfortunately already married with kids/teenagers.
Booked a garden Bungalow and was fortunate to be upgraded to a Junior Suite, beautiful room.
Just one hint although the staff done there job well they seemed to be a bit tired, maybe they need a break as well.

Room Tip: Book yourself a Junior Suite or Ocean Bungalow

This resort was beautiful and relaxing, the staff were very cheerful and always ready to help. I originally booked for one night on my way to another destination but ended up extending my stay another 2 nights

Forget seminyak and legian this is the best place to get away from it all and just relax away from the crowds . The staff are truly amazing with sugi ensuring we were satisfied . The food was fantastic with imam our chief producing some wonderful plates for us, pasek served up our freshly cooked breakfast and our pool man loco always had a towel and smile at the ready rooms are spacious with tv and Internet connection there's yoga twice a week which was great and table tennis if u r feeling energetic or the great day beds for relaxing.

Candidasa is a quiet village with lots of great restaurants including la rouge and Vincent's where a 2 course meal and drinks will cost about $20 per head including transport. U can also snorkel bike ride and dive or just read a book at the pool overlooking the Indian Ocean and islands.

So glad we found this place thanks to our travel agent for the recommendation.
