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 boyfriend and I stayed here 3 times during our 3 week trip to Bali. We even checked out of one of our other hotels a day early and transferred back to Candi Beach Resort. All 3 restaurants at the hotel are fantastic, the grounds are kept very clean, and the staff is incredibly friendly! We stayed in 3 different type of rooms, the best being the rooms in building 5 by Basil Restaurant (Garden and Sea View rooms). The location of the resort is fairly secluded, but you can hit some really cool spots with a driver, a scooter rental, or the transport service that the hotel offers that goes in to town twice a day.

We stayed here in a garden bungalow for 10 nights, mainly to scuba dive. We found the room to be in a quiet area, yet close to the pool, reception and restaurants. It felt quite private as tucked away in the gardens. We got a free gift of a sarong upon arrival. The bed was very comfortable, we slept very well here. Bathroom spacious with rainfall shower. Shampoo, shower gel and even a toothbrush were provided, but no body lotion. We had to keep requesting this nearly every day, which was quite annoying (we didn't bring it to save luggage space as hotels always provide it). They had it, but it wasn't put on the rooms for some reason.  It's a quiet resort, perfect for relaxing and a great base for scuba diving, with a dive centre in the resort itself. I did 12 dives with the dive centre and was very impressed, saw turtles, sharks and rays and dived the USS Liberty twice.  However we like our holidays to be quite action packed, and we felt a little bored here with the lack of things to do. There wasn't many excursion options at all, we like sightseeing and photography and the only sightseeing excursion was visiting the temple and water Palace, everything else was trekking,  cycling, or snorkeling, which didn't really appeal to us as divers. There were 2 free walking tours available from the hotel, but both of these were quite short. Everything also seemed to take place at around the same time in the morning, Tai Chi, Yoga, scuba diving, so didn't have time to do everything and was bored the rest of the day. There are also some short afternoon activities, like coconut tree climbing and a cooking demonstration.  Breakfast was good, an omelette bar, and a variety of hot dishes, fruit and fruit juices and pastries. I enjoyed the doughnuts. However hot chocolate cost extra, which is annoying, and the coffee was awful. It was nice to eat breakfast outside overlooking the beach.  There were 3 restaurant options. The Italian and Indonesian restaurants were quite good, very generous portion sizes and the price wasn't too high for most dishes. The Ocean Terrace restaurant was good for lunch (burgers, pizzas and sandwiches), but very disappointing for dinner. Considering that this was the more expensive restaurant, the food quality was poor. Both dinners I had here was disappointing, flavourless duck legs and a cardamom chicken curry which was a large piece of chicken in skin containing some bones drizzled in a tiny bit of curry sauce. One evening, they gave us a free appetiser of a ham sandwich which was just bizarre. All three restaurants had views of the beach, and were perfect for watching the breathtaking sunsets over dinner.  There is also free WiFi throughout the resort with excellent coverage.  There was a 50% off the spa offer if we didn't change our bedsheets or towels for a day, which was good, and allowed us to visit the spa on our final day for a reasonable price.  Pools are open to 9pm, which we liked as we could have an evening swim after dinner.  Read less

First time in my life I see extra in breakfast for hot chocolate for my child... staff was not like all around in Bali/Lombok... We ask for the baby bed but when we arrived nothing was ready. One good point, the bed very comfortable.Good location to move to Gili Islands
