The Watergarden Hotel & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 2, 2012

The Watergarden is a small, personal and welcoming collection of villas set around a series of beautiful Koi ponds. Sitting on your full length verandah, you are hardly aware of other guests or villas as you are separated by water, tropical gardens and winding brick-paved paths and wooden bridages over connecting waterways. The genuine welcome and ongoing attention from staff members adds to your enjoyment of this hidden gem. A lovely restaurant, spa.massage and pool/bar area, all facilities very close by and the seafront just a 50 metre walk across the road through the small resort opposite. If you want a relaxing place to stay and don't like the over-crowded and noisy party atmosphere of Kuta (although you can still find some of that in Candi if you want) you will find the Watergarden offers a special holiday in a very special setting.

Room Tip: Wide range of rooms in different locations around a series of cascading water features up a gentle s...

There are not many hotels in the world where just hanging out at your room is a shear pleasure. The gardens are beautiful. It is so peaceful and quiet. I nodded off yesterday after a hike only to be woken by the splash of a fish jumping at my feet. There are lots of birds.The whole property is a delight.
This property has water everywhere so it is not friendly to kids who can't swim.
Obviously, it is not a party place either.
The only downside is that the pool is too hot to enjoy, but this is November and while the weather is beautiful it is hot. I'm told Bali is noticeably cooler mid year, but then there are far, far more tourists.
I note that a previous reviewer (Sunny B) didn't like this hotel. I think he is correct in that for him it was a bad choice. This hotel, and I'd say all of Candidasa, is not a place to go for Octoberfest. His comments about the beds and mosquitoes are an exageration of our experience, particularly considering that we are not paying anything like 5 star prices, even by Bali's standards.

Room Tip: We are staying in room 11, at the rear of the property. I would definitely choose it again.

This hotel have a unique beautiful jungle setting at their surrounding. Their room is very comfy, their Koi pond in front of the room is such a dream.When i stayed here, I usually day dreaming there for 10 or 15 minute, gather my thought and then continued my holiday activity with my fiancee. It's so 'soul healing'. Their staff is very helpful. Their breakfast was nice. Couldn't ask for more.

It was my second stay at The Watergarden, and it did not disappoint in any way. If you are looking for a beautiful hotel with wonderful private rooms, friendly staff and a perfect romantic stay then go here!
The whole experience is fabulous.
Can't wait to go back!

PS have a treat and book a massage in the spa, mmmmmmmmm.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, but room 10 is at the top of the grounds, no one walks past!

I was in awe of the serenity and the lush tropical gardens of the Watergarden. I stayed here with friends for 5 nights and within a few days we were like part of the family. The staff were absolutely wonderful and attentive to all our requests. We had the opportunity to upgrade from our private villas, which were in themselves magnificent, to a two bedroom private villa with pool. This made our holiday that much more enjoyable. Whilst here, my friends celebrated their wedding anniversary and the Manager, chef and staff went out of their way to prepare a beautiful cake and made their special day even more so. I will definitely return to the Watergarden as I have left a piece of my heart here.

Room Tip: All rooms are designed with privacy in mind and each villa has it's own verandah overlooking a b...
