We stayed there from 8 to 11 Dec 2013. Together with my two teenager children, we stayed in the suite, which was really spacious, beautiful, complete with a large private jacuzzi.
Bedugul on the whole is a quiet place, if you like the clubs and shopping in Kuta, this is not the right place. However, if you are wishing for an easy, lay-back, cool holiday, Puri Candikuning definitely offers the tranquility and serenity you are looking for. The retreat is nestled in the lakeside (literally as shown in their pictures) and is a little far away from main activities. However, free boat ride to the temple and one-way car ride to the fresh fruit market/Botanical Garden are provided. If you take a little hike northwards, there is one or two simple eating house that sells pretty good Babi Guning.
The restaurant could improve on their menu though especially for a quiet place where patrons generally dine in.
