“Wonderful Small Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We stayed for two weeks in March. It had been over a year since our last stay and the high standards were still evident and we were greeted like family. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well maintained and unlike others who have reviewed, we found there was sufficient room for our belongings and the bathroom is spacious, clean and has soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, a drying rack and towels are changed daily. The rooms are serviced daily and the beds turned down and mosquito nets drawn each evening. The room had an efficient air con. The hotel was sprayed for mosquitos while we were there which is done on a regular basis. The attention to detail is all there and if anything needs attention, the staff do their utmost to fulfill any reasonable request. The staff go out of their way, to make all guests feel that they are important and special. I had my birthday and the hotel organised a birthday cake. My sister had, without my knowledge, arranged for flowers and champagne directly with the hotel and she later told me that this had been a streamlined and easy process to arrange. The hotel ambience is enhanced by the beautiful gardens and fish ponds that run adjacent to the walkway between the rooms, not to mention the amazing outlook at the ocean front to the three small islands and then Nusa Penida. The restaurant serves delicious food with a varied menu. Breakfast is included and I like the cappucinos. The hotel spa has reasonable prices for massages, pedi, mani etc. The pool is clean and refreshing and when the tide is low, there are steps leading into the lagoon out front for a swim in the sea. Alam Asmara is in a great location, very quiet, peaceful with the sound of the sea lulling guests to sleep. It is also convenient to the main street in Candidasa where there are shops and other restaurants. We also had to organise for the doctor to come and this was all handled efficiently with concern for the wellbeing. We've written reviews previously about Alam Asmara and I'm pleased to report that the hotel is still a wonderful place to stay.

We made an unplanned stop here last February on returning early from a less than fun stay in Amed and we were so glad we did. A small and simple but truly lovely hotel on the waterfront. Good value for money and very comfortable rooms. Yes they are small but tastefully furnished with some luxurious touches and very clean. A perfect place for couples. The staff were excellent and the restaurant was very good as well. We would come back again in a heartbeat and we will on our next visit. Thankyou to the wonderful staff and the great chef.

We stayed at Alam Asmara as a couple for 5 days to explore East Bali. The small hotel complex (12 bungalows all of equal size) is very pretty, scenic and relaxing and the staff were truly excellent, professional, efficient and friendly (especially the lovely Mudita).

All of the small bungalows are set back off a beautifully kept water walkway with fish swimming and trees overhanging, creating privacy between the accommodation. Unlike other comments here we found the accommodation perfectly large enough with good a/c, fully provisioned and clean garden bathrooms and a small terrace at the front.

At the rear of the complex is an infinity pool, and the 'Rendezvous' restaurant overlooks the sea (great sunset viewing). The food is good but there are lots of other options nearby also.

We cant comment on the diving as we chose this hotel as a base to explore from and the hotel staff organised car&driver and itinerary with ease.

A great relaxed and romantic setting with impeccable service, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We spent 5 days here. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel is in a peaceful location overlooking the sea. We enjoyed the style of the rooms and everything was very clean and well maintained. We ate all our dinners there because the food was good and the setting was perfect for us. No beach but there were boats or cars to take us to a lovely sandy cove close by and the swimming pool was good to have a quick dip. We went snorkelling and fishing. The hotel arranged a car for us to visit a traditional village and some temples . We would like to go back...

The small bungalow style rooms with kingsized bed and outdoor stone bathroom were wonderful for a traditional feel of Bali. The walkways surrounded buy lush tropical plants and Koi fishponds were stunning. The pool was clean and refreshing and hubby loved being able to dive straight into the ocean in the mornings. The whole resort was imaculately clean and fresh. The restaurant food was sensational and we loved the food so much we ate nearly every meal there. Hubby LOVED the sate beef! As it was our 20th anniversary we were treated like a honeymoon couple with a petal heart welcoming doormat and a delicious heart shapped anniversary cake. The greatest asset to this resort is the staff. They were the best we found in the whole of Bali. Super friendly, very efficient at their jobs, and they were attentive to every wish you had and then all the ones you hadn't thought of yet. We were totally pampered! Snorkelling, fishing and trekking are the main adventure activities in Candidasa, so unless you are happy to lounge around the pool or go sightseeing 3 or 4 days is probably enough time in Candidasa for a young couple. Absolutely LOVED Alam Asmara and would definitely stay there again!

It has good location, close to everything and has affordable price level. Here is cheap minibar, laundry service. Room was small, dark, with bad noise insulation, but bed was really kingsize and very very comfortable. I dont like outside bathroom without sidewall, it is not for me. Territory is also too small, bungalows is very closed to each other. There is no beach, only small swimming pool with 4 or 5 sun-beds. Staff is very friendly, like everywhere in Bali. They have own dive center with excellent dive master Tika. This man is great profi! I'm thankful for my unforgettable diving with him. So, if you search hotel for beach rest you need something other, if you come for find great entertainment outside, and you need hotel for sleeping and for storage your bags Alam Asmara is the best choice in Candidasa.
