Reviewed January 22, 2009

We stayed at this place while traveling around the central mountains of Bali. We just showed up an took a room based on a review in the Lonely Planet.

Overall our stay was OK, but we felt that the room, restaurant and staff quality was not the best value compared other places we had stayed in Bali. However, it does offer a great location directly on the edge of Lake Danau Bratan as well as next door to the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan Temple. It is also a 30 min. walk to the Botanical Gardens.

The cottages are roomy and function well (plumbing etc.) however despite what was originally a good design/concept they have definitely seen better days. Cleanliness is acceptable, but not great. For example, the balconies are small and offer glimpses of the lake, but the furniture and cushions are so stained that they have no desire to sit on hem. Staff are lethargic and uninspired. Beware... I made a local call of less than a minute to the town 20 minutes down the road and they charged me an outrageous rate. The cost of a good meal in Bali!

I don't doubt that this the best place to stay if you're going to stay in Candikuning, but if you have your own vehicle then I'd go further along an stay elsewhere. It seems to be popular on weekends with groups of partying young Indonesian men... sadly the sound travels, in fact if they are in the cottage next door, it will sound like they are virtually in your room!

Also, just as point of interest, there isn't too much to see in Candikuning, other than the temple, lake view and the gardens which could all be done efficiently in a half day or leisurely in a full day (if you're walking around without guidance).

Enjoy your stay ;-)
