“Wonderful place for a quiet getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Rama Candidasa is the perfect place for a quiet, peaceful getaway on Bali. The chef in the restaurant is great, and you don't pay much at all! There is no beach though, just an endless view at the coast, but with the nice pool, it didn't matter. I stayed 10 days, which might be too long. There is only one main street with small Indomaret and Alfamarket to buy things. Staff is extremely friendly and kind. Loved it!!!

We stayed for 5 days only which i regret, should be longer... The hotel is awesome, the room was new, fresh and clean with cosy interior where you want to stay and relax. The staff very polite and friendly. The surrounding area of the hotel also makes you wishing to stay and relax there as much as possible. I would be happy to return to this place again and recommending it to people who like quiet vibe. However, i have 2 points to complaint about. A breakfast could have better range of food and the other PROBLEM for this property are children! There should be a separate area for kids such as swimming pool and playground. The swimming pool is suitable for rest in a quiet atmosphere and screaming kids with balls there not appropriate at all, they are not appropriate for this hotel in general. There were just 2-3 kids but as the hotel so quiet it was enough to disturb. So if not noisy children i would rate it 5 stars.

Room Tip: We had pretty dark room on ground floor so if you do not want it jusk ask at the reservation time fo...

After a rocky start of finding out that my room was going to be two single beds despite emailing the manager previously to confirm I was getting a double, we were upgraded complimentary. The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom seemed newly renovated. The bar area needs a update but did not detract from from the room. So close to the ocean, we heard to water and as Candidasa is very quiet, you felt cut off from the hustle and bustle of the Denpasar region. The pool is amazing, as is the view of the sea and Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongen. Spent a day there despite the unusual full day of intermittent rain showers. The restaurant is beautiful and the breakfast selection was amazing! Best breakfast ever! The menu for lunch was great - recommend the nasi campur. The pool attendant was extremely friendly and the foot reflexology which I chose to have at the bale by the pool with the ocean view was amazing.
I honestly and thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone. I cannot wait to return again. All staff are kind, caring, friendly and helpful.

Strange room and bathroom layout and very dark, great bed!

Internet slow.

Breakfast: 80% basic western, very small selection 20% of traditional Balinese meals; great taste! they should increase to 50% Indonesian as local cook is great. Should make own jam instead of using all the plastic throw away cups.

Restaurant: reasonable priced food, drinks too expensive. 10min away are many resto's and they pick you up and drop you back to the hotel after dinner.

Pool: too many screaming kids inside the main pool, management should consider making a separate smaller kids pool on the unused piece of land on the far side of the property, there is now a swing daybed but would be more suitable to have a kids pool so the main pool can be used by people that would like to swim. They should also forbid kids to throw balls to each-other in the main pool.

Staff was very friendly.

Would stay again.

Everything is weather dependant isn't it - and this was the case with our stay @ Candidasa. The room was well appointed except we didn't expect to be staying on the 3rd floor of a large complex so be sure to make sure what you are getting when you book - especially as there is no lift and this could be difficult for those with mobility issues. This complex was also a wee way away from the restaurant and pool so it pays to take a bag of your vital things with you when leaving the room - pain to go back when you forget something.
Pool beautifully clean and clear and a good temperature.
We had a lot of wind and 4 out of 5 grey days here- it was even cool enough to contemplate a jersey - lots of others had them on. This did affect how we experienced Candidasa. We had planned a boat trip to the Gillies Islands and a couple of fishing trips,but very rough seas. Snorkling was not undertaken at the apparently pristine White Sand Beach as it was not at all appealing with big rough waves and limited visibility but it would have been great on a nice day.
We did go on a great trip to Amed - very lovely rice terraces - and many more vistas than around Tegallalang - which was a major tourist trap and lots of kids hassling us to buy postcards etc. I got a lot more and better photos around Abang - just stopping on the side of the road and no payment required unlike Tegallalang!
We did snorkel @Jemulak - lovely clear warm water and heaps of fish but the coral was dissapointing.
Candidasa itself was quieter than many other centres - anough shops to get some shopping done and supermarkets but no hassels from shopkeepers or eating places unllike other places we stayed at. Just as we were leaving the weather changed - calm seas, very clear, and lovely with no wind - the full potential of the place was glimpsed - always the way when one leaves!
Would recommend Candidasa as a quieter place to stay in Bali, good hotel and lovely surrounds. Just be aware there are limited beaches here - you are right on the ocean front, but it is mainly breakwater and limited access to the ocean.

Room Tip: no lifts! so choose room carefuly

We really love this hotel. We had stayed twice, we were really relaxing.
They have nice view, nice spa, nice restaurant(resonable), and nice staffs.
We were enjoying to do nothing. We think, that is the best thing to stay here.
We want to go back soon there.

This resort is located in the rather remote part of Bali. Consequently, the town still exhibits the old and intimate Bali feel that I was looking for. The hotel is located by the ocean, but it does not have any beach at all since the wave breaks at the reclaimed land owned by the hotel.

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. We stayed at the ocean-facing bungalow and were very happy. Breakfast was great. Most of the restaurants in the area will pick you up from the hotel, so you will not have any problem to get around. If you are looking for a place to get away and rest, this would be a good place.
