What a fabulous little hotel. How can you beat a room that opens right on to the sea? How can you beat breakfast brought to your room and placed on the balcony? How can you beat hearing the sea while sitting on the balcony of your own room? How can you beat great staff just wanting to make your stay memorable? The list can go on and on and on.

We loved staying here and will be back. All the staff was so nice (They are everywhere in Indonesia) and so willing to so anything for you. The breakfast was great. After a month of eating too much it was nice to have a big bowl of fruit, toast, juice and coffee. We needed no more. The grounds are so well taken care of. There was a very nice gardener who worked constantly looking after things. The pool was great and a bit secluded rather then being in the center of everything.

The rooms were very nice and always kept very clean. The entire wall looking out to the sea was glass. You could leave your curtains open at night and see the ocean from bed.

They are in the process of adding an additional building to the site with more rooms and a restaurant. I understand the hotel was taken off the online sites while this is going on so they could correspond individually with request and let them know there is construction going on. That in itself says a lot to me, that the customer comes first. We were there while they were building and there was no problem at all with noise but I do appreciate being told in advance. My husband found it very interesting watching them build so it was a bonus for us. The addition will not take away from anything from the lovely setting. I almost hate to say to much about this hidden gem, when we go back I do hope I am able to get a room.

Thank you for the great service Nengah, Putu, Ayu, Ada and Aldo (the owners son) you are all doing a great job and we will be back again some day, hopefully soon.

Room Tip: At present you can't go wrong with any of the rooms. The better view is the three floors on the...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of our trip in Feb. 2013. We had the bungalow and it was comfortable with a view to the water from the veranda, good hot water and live plants in the shower area, and tasteful furnishings. Our children and spouses and a grandchild stayed upstairs in two rooms in the 6-room main unit and had an even better view of the grounds and water. The pool was lovely and we enjoyed it in the evening as well as in the morning. The new restaurant building was under construction so we gathered for breakfast on our veranda in the mornings, and walked to a restaurant down the beach at the next hotel for dinner one night and walked into town for dinner another night. Aldo, the owner, was wonderful. He arranged a car to pick us up at the airport and another for sightseeing -- both were excellent. We enjoyed the quiet location (we were the only ones there due to the construction) and will definitely return.

Room Tip: All the 6 rooms in the main unit face the ocean--the upstairs ones have a better view. There is one...

Quiet hotel, beautiful grounds, wonderful view from room. We stayed in the bungalow, it was bright, spacious. Loved the bathroom with the miniature garden and the power shower was fantastic. The owner, Aldo, was very helpful arranging us a moped and airport transfer. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I am back in Candidasa.

We stayed in Genggong for 3 nights at the end of our trip. The room was modern, clean and tidy but did start off with a very strong smell of cleaning products - but as I said - it was clean.

The grounds are pleasant and the pool lovely. The hotel is situated right of the beach - at the end of Candidasss that actually has a bit of beach. So very nice location.

Negative points would be - the reception area is a bit messy - it came as a bit of a shock when we came to check in. Also - there is building work going on to create a restaurant. At the pace they are working at - it is likely to be several months before this is completed. However it was not particularly off putting. Work seems to be done by hand - so the noise was not bad.

As others have said - breakfast is a bit lame - but there is a fridge in the room where you can keep some snacks and tea / coffee facilities are provided.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and your comments are very much appreciated. I'm sorry for the very late reply to your review.

We do try our best to keep our rooms and the rest of the hotel as clean as possible. Yes we do have a sandy beach! Something a bit rare in Candidasa. That's because we decided to build our wall further back so that there would be a sandy beach. Also because we did help protect the coral reef in front of us many years ago.

I'm sorry about the on going construction at the time, I did inform you of the situation when you were booking with us. Don't worry, the messy reception area and the lame breakfast is no more! We have a brand new reception and restaurant, so I guarantee we have a better breakfast now.

We are currently developing another wing with 9 more rooms replacing the old shocking reception building, which should be ready by June 2014.

We hope to see you again in the near future.

Best Regards,
Aldo & all Genggong staff

We stayed 1 night only in Deluxe room, it's not enough, definitely will return.
The room was spacious, modern style and of course clean, we had a problem with few bugs when we returned to the room after dinner but we don't too much care with that, they also provide electric mosquito repellent in the room.
It takes only 5-10 minutes to restaurant or ATM nearby from the hotel.
The staff are very helpful and nice, we enjoyed breakfast in the pool with bowl of fruits and toast, very healthy to start your day.
We heard that the hotel will be renovated, they'll add restaurant and few rooms, we hope that they don't take garden area for this and they should consider to add more space for parking.
Very recommended hotel.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your kind review. We have now finished the construction of our new reception and restaurant, but still in the middle of constructing more rooms, which should be ready by June 2014. Don't worry, we only built over the pre existing buildings, so the garden still remains the same. Our car park will be able to accommodate 7 cars.

We hope to see you again in the near future.

We stayed at Hotel Genggong for 4 nights in the bungalow. Room was spacious, clean and had everything you need. The bungalow overlooks the large pool to the beach (what you would pay 100's for in a resort), hotel in a quiet location away from the main street, yet only a 5 min walk from restaurants. It felt like our private hotel as we always had the pool to ourselves. Pool size big enough to do laps if you feel inclined! We had massages by the pool everyday! We will be back! Highly recommend. A Tip: take a small torch with you, as the lane way is dark at night.
