Rama Candidasa Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 20 Hotels in Candidasa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 June 2014

There is nothing much to do in the Candi Dasa area, if truth be told, but if you ever want to just relax by the coast in Eastern Bali, Rama Candidasa Resort is a nice place to stay and is definitely worth its price - unbelievably cheap.

The rooms are typical but are clean and comfortable enough. You wouldn't want to stay in for most of the day anyway so the superior rooms are more than ok. I would suggest asking for the rooms on the groundfloor, esp if you're not as young anymore.

The facilities are average but they do provide lots of free activities within the resort (hiking, yoga, cooking lessons, snorkeling) on specified days of the week (so you might want to email them to ask about the schedule before you book your stay) and some special activities (for an extra fee: diving, village visits, etc.). It's nothing much but apart from the pool, you can play mini golf at the beachfront and table tennis at the court in the back. I liked the beachfront but the garden was far more relaxing in my experience.

If you're into spa treatments, there's a bunch you can get within the comfort of the resort. A bit pricey, actually, but might be worth trying if you're not really tight with the budget.

The breakfast is quite nice and filling but nothing too exciting. The restaurant's food is delicious and service is good, but you can expect it to be pricey. You can always choose to explore the nearby restaurants - plenty of them east of the resort (nearest one is about 10 minutes walk). If you want a quick, cheaper meal, there is a Warung right infront the resort - which, by the way, serves absolutely fantastic fish and chicken dishes! I highly recommend.

Over-all, I would definitely recommend Rama Candidasa.

Room Tip: If you're booking a superior room, definitely ask for the groundfloor rooms because the building...

Initially we don't know how the resort will be since it was booked by our uncle. The resort is too far from air port taxi will cost u around 375000 IDR and it will take around 2:30 hrs to reach. But the location of the resort is very peaceful near the sea. If u want to spent a quality time with ur partner than its a good place. Rooms are not that spacious but the staffs r really well behaved n they will treat u nicely. V got a very good taxi driver his name is surya an honest n a person who knows the places very well n will also bargain for u in local language if u r planning a visit u can reach him on his cell +6281805308373 mail is ksurya747@gmail.com he is really ver cheap. Since u will be staying too far from city therefore u need a taxi driver who is very cheap for u n very accommodating relating to the timings. If u r staying in candidasa than u will get opportunity to see the authentic Bali the village n hill area. It's natural beauty is awesome. Kuta nausa Dua ubud volcano will be 1:30 to 2:00 hrs drive from this resort and u have to pay between 450000 to 500000 IDR. I will suggest if u have to maintain budget than only plan for this resort because room n food is cheap but travelling is expensive. For stay more than 3 days. U will also get good restaurants near buy so it won't be much problem. Most of the travellers visit the resort for long stay n they all r very friendly n will talk to u a lot. For honeymoon I would rate 3 star n very peaceful location for spending quality time. I rate it good.

We stayed at the Rama candidasa for 2 nights before heading to Gili Trawangan. The stay was exceptional apart from one confussion. I had read on one of their reviews that you dont seem to get the room you generally book. The same thing happened with us. We had booked the ocean view room, but as we reached they told us that the room was occupied and they would give us another room. They also offeres us the suite, but it located in the backside of the hotel, away from the ocean. But we took a room closer to the ocean. Also the hotel, although located seaside, has no beach or beach access.
The staff was exceptionally courteous, which made our stay worth while. Candidasa is not a very lively neighborhood, Its very quite and the eating joints are rarely crowded (or ever half full) but its very calm and beautiful.
Overall it turned out to be a peaceful stay.

Room Tip: Do not miss the breakfast and the BABI KECAP, it is exceptional.

I stayed there for a couple of days with my wife for a short getaway. The first thing that catches our attention was the pool. It was gorgeous. We literally slack around for the whole day at the pool side, you can even catch the sunset from the swimming pool. The environment was very peaceful and quiet, not much of a tourist area, so it felt like you have the whole resort for yourself.
The only thing which you need to consider is the location of this place. It took us about 2 hours to depart from the airport to Candidasa area. So if you are planning to have an early flight back, you're gonna have a hard time. But in general, this is an amazing place, highly recommended for couples looking to have a romantic time alone.

Therooms are nice, though ours had a bit of a smell. Thz breakfast was great and the food in the restaurant is very good and very nice presented. Beautiful pool, good srvice and staff is very friendly. Candidasa as place does not present vey much but it's a nice place to stay for a couple of days.
