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 luxurious feel. 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.

My family & I stayed at this resort for 2nights. We rented the vila. Upon checking-in, they seemed busy, no time for introduction, welcoming or anything. Maybe short staffed? The vila was extra spacious. With a jacuzzi & private pool. But too bad the private pool was filled with insects inside, didn't even bother to swim. The main problem is the worm looking insects that kept crawling inside the room. Had to sweep 20 over in a day. Creepy & tiring. (please don't say that it's nature because other vila i stayed with garden doesn't have this problem) Water pressure was good though. Swimming pool was adequate. Breakfast/dining was less than adequate, they need to improve this. The staffs are also very busy. Friendlier towards the foreigners it seemed. It could have been so much more if it wasn't for the insects. Read less

Thank you for upgrading my room into Luxury Ocean View Suite.. they provide a private open jacuzzi at the balcony facing to the ocean, Nice concept.. love the room design, layout and bathroom amenities.. nice.. and the most important thing, the Bed and pillows re very comfortable 👍🏼 tried the Pizza at Basil restaurant, it was good.. Breakfast was so so.. Health protocol was also applied in room and all areas.. But the staff service quality needs more improvement, specially for front office staff. Starting from check-in, i didnt feel a warm welcome at all.. no greetings, no smile.. I must say, most of your staff were looking like you dont care, lack of initiative and willingness to serve. Luckily all of our rooms were ready at the time we arrived, good point (I was part of the group, 65 rooms in total). Housekeeping staffs were good and friendly. Check-out process was the worst, sorry to say but i’ve spent almost 45 minutes for it. First, there’s no one in the lobby, they let the lobby empty without any notice/note. Even at parking area, no one!! Have to wait sometime for one staff finally came (i was thinking that guests can easily leave the hotel without paying).. Second, when settling the bill their portable creditcard machine was lowbatt, i asked if they provide a QR code payment (my bad that i didnt have much cash). I said i prefer to use QR code payment as my cc got trouble sometimes, the staff said that QR code is only available in the restaurant, so i had to wait (again) for him to take it. Third, after waiting so long finally a different staff came (a lady) with a QR code (i thought she’s a reception-didnt see the name) with no smile, no sorry, no everything! And the code was undefined, had to wait (AGAIN) for another QR which both were the same! Then i asked if i can transfer the payment using my mobile banking. And FINALLY its done. No more drama! Again, No thank you, no sorry from her!! I understand that there’re 2 lobby, but hotel supposed to anticipate the operational needed! Anw, Thanks to Cristian - the only Front Office staff that shown a high level of service. As a frequent traveller, i expected more from Candi Beach Resort.... hopefully this was happened not because we’re a “black hair” guest! Read less

Staying in Candi Beach Resort & Spa is truly a wonderful experience! Check-in process was super quick and our room was magnificent thanks to Shinta! Everything from the room and facilities were in good condition and well-maintained. Too bad the main lobby and some buildings were under renovation. Sunset at the beach was amazing, Meals at the Basil restaurant were good and reasonably priced, plus they had 1 for 2 beer promo going on. A special shoutout to Ibu Sukarmi whom we met during breakfast at Basil. Her Impeccable service and attention to details amazed us whilst handling the service all by herself! She really made our day. Would love to see her and the amazing team again on our next visit. Read less
