Candi Beach Resort & Spa

Candi Dasa, Bali

The hotel

Secluded among coconut palms on the white sands of Mendira Beach, this Balinese escape has two distinct personalities. One is thoroughly modern, with chic ocean-facing pools for adults and children, subtle contemporary décor, and luxuries like air-con and complimentary WiFi. The other is utterly authentic, bringing you everything you’d expect of an Indonesian island idyll. Candi Beach Resort & Spa’s coconut palm grove gardens open up to visions of Balinese architecture. You can dine on Asian and island dishes overlooking the ocean at Biru (or on Western fare at Ocean Terrace). And its attractions mix a dive centre on the beach with local experiences like Indonesian cookery lessons, leaf drawing, and Balinese and Asian dining events, often with island dancing and music adding to the atmosphere.

The ocean view from my balcony sofa where i'm writing this lengthy review, is simply fantastic!. One can simply doze off listening to the sound of the waves crushes the shores. We were riding from the city the day before, initially made a stop here only for a drink, and then everything in this hotel felt sooo right that we decided to stay. This is a new suite, the layout, the bed, the color scheme, feels fresh, airy and bright, with such an expensive ocean view from the balcony. The suites have private parking area and more personalized reception. The suite itself is equipped with all essentials that we need for an unplanned stay. More than enough amenities, we love that they all packaged in paper wrap instead of plastic packaging, nicely arranged in a flat rattan basket. I smiled when i found among them are two small rubber band for hair. Oh how thoughtful!. Unlike other hotel, there provide 2 pairs of proper flip flops alongside the usual sleepers, also 2 complimentary beach sarong. After having drink at BIRU and delicious pizza at BASIL in the afternoon, our dinner at OCEAN TERRACE was equally enjoyable. The tuna was cooked exactly the way we wanted, and the cardamon chicken was tender and has subtle taste, not overpowering. The buffet breakfast at the same spot this morning was easy. They may not have extensive breakfast buffet items, but we were satisfied because each food that we had was all tasty. Read less

The resort is a very calm place mainly family oriented. A little dated facilities but everything is clean and very well kept. No gym available as well. Good breakfast selection. Dining in the hotel is expensive though. There is a wide variety of accommodation classes available depending on the price. The garden room around the main pool was just ok. There are no openable windows. Good and spacious bathroom but relatively small room. The bed is comfortable but the mosquito net around the bed is not adequate and barely do the job. There are mosquitoes as well but the management makes efforts to spray around on a schedule. One just quite scandalous experience is that some staff rushed into the room to ask if we want to spay for mosquitoes albeit we put do not disturb tag on the door already! He knocked on the door first, we replied that we don't need spraying in here and he opened the door anyway to enter and beg again to spray?! Entering in a room that way is just not acceptable by any hotel standards! The resort overall is good but not much to do around. It's just perfect for a short stay and explore Candidasa area with a motorbike. Read less

My partner and I just spent 4 nights in a luxury pool villa. This was by far the most amazing, luxurious (and private) villa we have stayed in. The private pool and cabana is simply sensational. The room is extremely generous in size with a very comfortable super king bed and a large day bed. The huge separate bathroom has a spa and a covered outdoor double shower. The staff at the hotel were the friendliest, most attentive hotel staff I have experienced. Nothing was too much trouble. The grounds of the hotel are lush and very well maintained. Breakfast, which is a la carte for villa guests, was lovely and the pool snacks which were delivered to the villa were delicious; however the evening meals at the restaurant were just okay. We were a little tentative about travelling to Candidasa, having always stayed in Seminyak and while there is very little to see or do in the town, it wasn’t a problem as the villa was so fabulous we didn’t want to leave it. We will definitely return as soon as possible. It is truly paradise. Read less

The resort is nice enough great location for snorkel in and diving but... I got sick from either a salad or a cocktail Resort staff didn’t care and the toilet blocked... A really unpleasant experience for a 5 star resort 🤢
