This property is quite new, so everything is in tip top shape. The staff are the real stars of this place. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very well done - simple clean lines, bright and airy. There is a very cool bar overlooking the ocean (drinks are very expensive) and similarly there is a lovely restaurant on the other side. The restaurant is quite nice and the meals are interesting and well prepared. However, like the bar it is very expensive - the kind of prices you would find in big cities.
Unfortunately The Chandi is not in a very good location. As others have pointed out there is not much of a beach. It's a narrow sandy strand that is very dirty and because of coral and rocks not suitable for swimming. The nearby beach is also very dirty. The resort is also on one of the main roads to town and quite close to the road. It's not particularly quiet with the traffic noise. Avoid the garden view villas as they back on to the road. The property is bordered on either side by fishing huts so there are always people around, fires burning, noise etc. Across the road is a busy mosque, so expect to be wakened at 5 am. And by all means, avoid this place during Idul Fitri (end of Ramandan celebration). I was there during this period and for 2 days the place was so noisy and the waterfront was packed with people all day and night. The properties on either side had been turned into carnival grounds starting at 7am and going until 10 - 11 pm. It made the resort an unpleasant place due to the all the noise and the road was clogged with traffic so it was difficult to get in and out. I don't think the resort staff expected this as they really didn't know how to react and in fact weren't really sure how long it would last. This may prove to be an annual problem for The Chandi. I think that you may find equal quality and value at the resorts north of Sengiggi.
