“Exceptional Rooms, Service and Experience.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Had the most wonderful opportunity to stay in this hotel during my trip to Bali. The rooms in the hotel were beautifully decorated (love your bolsters on the bed) and the hotel staffs were most friendly and attentive to our needs with special thanks to Dewa and Putu. The complimentary traditional boat ride provided by the hotel to Ulun Danu Temple was definitely a highlight for us. Our experience in the hotel would have been even better if not for the large amount of houseflies petering us during our spa sessions and while having our meals at the restaurant. I would suggest that the hotel install some housefly traps to solve this annoying problem. Other than this, I feel that this is one hotel you should definitely book.

The property is extremely scenic, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Our room opened on to the lake, and we had a nice boat ride to the local temple by the lake.
Service leaves a lot to be desired, and the place seemed short staffed.

Room Tip: We had a lake facing room and it was very scenic.

This is a great place to stay if you are visiting the Bedugul area. The hotel is perched above a huge lake with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. There are only six rooms, which are all basically self contained suites with large bedrooms and substantial bathrooms with whirlpool baths as well as good showers (and water that is hot almost as soon as you turn on the tap). Also all have nice outdoor areas with a great views of the lake. All the staff are kind, friendly and helpful and full of suggestions of what to do whilst staying there. They have some paddle boats by a little jetty and are happy to paddle you round the lake to the famous Bedugul temple and back. There are also three bikes for guest use if you feel brave enough to hazard the main road with buses, cars and motor bikes honking loudly as they overtake you.

All meals are taken in the dining room above the swimming pool which looks across the lake. The food is very local and not at all bad, especially grilled fish fresh from the lake. However the breakfast is not good and Western tastes are not really catered for, eg the Continental Breakfast - fresh fruit is OK, but the orange juice is like orange squash, the milk is 'local' Indonesian milk (ie v strange tasting), coffee is Balinese and varies in quality from day to day, toasted white bread and Danish pastries unimpressive. Adding some fresh croissants and some half decent jam (we are right in the middle of the strawberry growing region of Bali) would greatly improve things. Also at dinner not much in the way of drink options - only alcohol is Bintang beer, would be nice if they could at least provide some wine (and not that dreadful ubiquitous Hatten wine either!). Only other gripe is that many of the lights in the bedroom an bathroom are not working, this isn't such an issue in the bedroom but the bathroom is very dark at night so it's difficult to see oneself in the mirror!

Nevertheless a great place to stay and if they can make the above improvements it could be even better.

Best choice to have a relax trip, veryvery nice landscape and a great SPA experience and price..We will be back~

However, WiFi signal in Rooms was weak and Slow! Bad taste about the curry!!! <---Please!

Large room and many doors in the villas, We felt un-safety in first day......

Room Tip: Just 6 Villas, It seems all the villas are face to the lake, has a good view.

During our regular stay at Puri Bunga Resort in Ubud we took a day trip to enjoy the natural beauty of Puri Candikuning. Putting it simply we were blown away. The Retreat overlooks a beautiful lake and the jungle. The view was breathtaking. We enjoyed a beautiful lunch under a thatched gazebo and the staff were so attentive. This Retreat is so peaceful and relaxing and the standard of the rooms is off the scale.I've never seen bathrooms as big as these! The cooler temperature is a welcome change. It is about a 1 hour drive from Ubud and the scenery along the way was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend this Retreat it is certainly worth a visit.

Room Tip: very private retreat all rooms are to a very high standard

I had a wonderful time at Puri Candikuning. The staff were extremely gracious and helpful, always willing to assist promptly with whatever we needed, especially Ettie and Dewa. The villa was beautiful, with kitchen, daybeds, terraces, gardens, view of the lake and an enormous bathroom! The grounds, swimming pool and buildings were luxurious and very well maintained. The only drawback was the restaurant menu was a little limited but the food available was good. Overall I would absolutely recommend this accommodation.

Room Tip: The one bedroom villa is fantastic!
