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.

The Staff is friendly but they came to often to offer you something you can do arround the hotel, like tours and boatrides. The breakfast is good with a lot different stuff to eat, but the Restaurant at the evening is way to expensive! You pay over 10 Euro for a normal Plate Bolognese (for example) also the indonesian food is about 4 Times more expensive than oudside of the hotel in a local Restaurant. The Pools are clean and big enough for the guests. Its better to book all inclusive (its cheaper at the end ) It was ok but i dont come back here. Read less

We had the pleasure of staying at this resort in one of the pool villa suites (803) which was amazing. The room was beautiful with all you could wish for during your stay. The bed was very comfortable however if you are a light sleeper ear plugs are a good idea as the birds and dogs barking nearby like to wake you up with a song or two from 5 am. For UK travellers who may be wondering about the plugs, no chargers required the room has UK sockets. Also we brought lots of mosquito repellents but did not need them it was simply too hot. Great Daikin ac in the rooms and trust us when we say it’s so nice to come in from the heat to a lovely cool room. The lovely housekeeping crew will change your sheets each day if you want but put the flyer on your bed and they will give you a 50% discount voucher for the spa. The pool is amazing and it’s certainly not a fish pond so mood clear photography! Easy to do a few lengths or bring a lilo and float to your hearts content. The pool, like the garden is cleaned daily shame as to be honest the smell of the falling frangipani flowers is lovely. We stayed on an all inclusive basis and would say that whilst it had its restrictions ie local drinks and no room service there was plenty to eat and drink. Don’t worry if you are asked to sign for things it’s only by way of a record not to charge you (so long as it’s in the AI package). The Indonesian restaurant Biru is an absolute must, the food was amazing and sitting with the background of waves, bliss. The Ocean View restaurant was also lovely however the menus are western in style so steak etc. Pasta night was probably not the best but why eat pasta buffet style when in Bali.The local house wine is also very nice. We have to say you will certainly not go hungry and in both the staff are so lovely and ensure you are well looked after The resort itself is one of peace and tranquility so if like us you wanted to do very little it’s perfect. There is almost nothing to do however there are plenty of beautiful places to visit and these are easy to arrange whilst at the resort. if you like to snorkel or dive then there are lots of local boats to take you. All in all a fantastic little piece of heaven in Bali. Would we come back absolutely it’s full of warm people, beautiful scenery and amazing food. Read less

After travelling around through Indonesia before during the last 35 years even with groups, my resting place in the orient always was Bali! Since 1996 I prefer Candi Beach Resort and Spa because of its well ordered situation in Candidasa. Next to the sea and far from busy traffic roads. Always clean housings and good various restaurants !

This is the second time I have stayed at Candi Beach Resort. My first stay was so perfect I was almost afraid to go a 2nd time for fear of disappointment. But my 2nd stay was just as perfect as my first. The room is lovely, the property is beautiful, the staff are warm and friendly, and the ocean-front location is perfect - far from the crowds you see elsewhere in Bali. You can actually fall asleep to the sounds of waves. Read less
