“Clean, comfortable and welcoming”
Reviewed September 27, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Situated on the main Street in Candidasa, just a walk away to other restaurants and shops although this is a very busy road so need to be careful. The beach is on the doorstep but comes right to the boundary wall so I never found it available for swimming. However a great pool in the resort which we used every day.
We had particularly difficult journey when our plane was cancelled and our baggage went missing. The staff were amazing , really helpful, phoning the airport constantly to make queries for us. Lovely people, lovely place and I would definitely recommend. The bath does have small leak but this can be sorted.

“Great Villa, nice quiet resort”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a lovely week at Vila Palmboyan, traveling with our two teenage daughters as well as our brother and sister in law. The vila was clean, well furnished and the self contained master suite on the first floor offered privacy and great ocean views for our in laws while the rest of us occupied the two bedrooms, bathroom and living spaces on the ground level. The hotel staff were fantastic and watching turtles bob up in front of the resort while having breakfast each morning was an added bonus. The owner of the villa Richard was very accommodating, responding to enquirers quickly. I'd recommend this villa to people traveling with teenage kids who want to experience the quieter side of Bali.

“THE best place for "down-time" in Bali”
Reviewed December 27, 2014 for a stay in December 2014
people found this review helpful

If you are looking for somewhere to relax and opt out of the exciting, hustle and bustle of Bali for a little "breather", Richard's villa is definitely the place to do that. It's so much quieter in candi Dasa, the streetes are cleaner, traffic isn't the full on "ballet" that it is on the west coast (I still haven't worked out why the Balinese have white lines painted down the middle of their roads ... lol), there are few hawkers on the streets and they are pretty laid back too.. We spent 12 nights there at the end of our holiday.

The Owner
Richard is great to do business with and a considerate and responsive host. He was physically out of country when we arrived but online to welcome us and help with settling in. Thanks Richard !

The Villa:
The villa is within the Bali Palms resort and is surprisingly private (being in a small resort). It has 2 levels. Upstairs (accessed by outside stair) is a queen bed room with large balcony with views to Lombok Island, TV, tea/coffee facilities, mini bar (we just used the fridge for our own drinks) and separate bathroom (shower).
Downstairs is 2 x queen bed rooms + room safe, huge bathroom (you really should get a pic of that bath up on your listing Richard lol), fully equipped kitchen, (leather) lounge room and downstairs balcony. All rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans and the furnishings are . Renting this villa gave us access to the resort, all it's facilities and some of the inhouse discounts.

The Resort
The resort is on the seaside - literally. There is no beach in front of the resort. It is a small rock wall with the resort boundary on the wall.
The resort has everything you need, reasonably priced restaurant, cocktail bar, great pool (can do short laps), spa (by the pool if you want), dive school & equip, beach chairs looking over Lombok Island for great sunsets ... or they will source it for you The staff are welcoming, responsive and friendly without being intrusive. They do you a great service there, Richard!

It is within EASY walking distance to restaurants, bars, spas and shopping. We enjoyed some of the best steak dinners in a long while at the Hungry Crocodile and great music and "real" cocktails at the New Queen. If you are over bartering .... there is a well stocked shop 2 doors down from Grumpys where items are all (reasonably) priced and you can still barter on the final price if you want....

The villa is in Candi Dasa on the quieter south east coast of Bali. The resort is at one end of the main street in Candi Dasa and they have a sister resort at the other end of the street and run regular air con shuttle services down the main street between the 2 resorts. You can snorkel over coral & tropical fish straight off the little beach at the sister resort. White Sand Beach (Pasir Putih) is secluded, beautiful, coral snorkeling and $100rp/hr massages on the beach and is about 15min drive & great snorkeling at blue lagoon, about 20min boat trip. private driver hire is cheaper than Seninyak or Ubud.
