“Great property to rest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

This resort is located in the rather remote part of Bali. Consequently, the town still exhibits the old and intimate Bali feel that I was looking for. The hotel is located by the ocean, but it does not have any beach at all since the wave breaks at the reclaimed land owned by the hotel.

The hotel is clean and nicely decorated. We stayed at the ocean-facing bungalow and were very happy. Breakfast was great. Most of the restaurants in the area will pick you up from the hotel, so you will not have any problem to get around. If you are looking for a place to get away and rest, this would be a good place.

We enjoyed our stay at Candidasa very much, it was very relaxing. The gardens and apartments are very well maintained and the location on the ocean is beautiful.
2 hours from the airport but if you treat that as part of the touring that isn't a problem
We recommend asking the resort to arrange a taxi from the airport. This will cost around 50,000 IDR. You can negotiate maybe 40,000 with a driver but it is worth having it pre-arranged when you arrive after a long flight.
The resort offer a flat rate for a buffet breakfast. This is good value. It saves having to worry about finding a restaurant every day for breakfast. the restaurant is first class and the prices comparable with the better restaurants in Candidasa.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The free activities are a good idea to try and take in if you can.
Free shuttle bus to the town is a great service. The shopping in Candidasa is good. The supermarkets are good value if you don't enjoy bartering all the time.

The Rama Candidasa is a serene resort with a wonderful staff and incredible views from the restaurant and from our exquisite suite... We stayed in the Rama suite.
From the time that we arrived the staff were welcoming and obliging... And when we were taken to our two level suite the views took our breath away... It's hard to leave this room, even to go to the restaurant - which has a great menu of local and international foods and sits just over the ocean...
The prices are reasonable and the service is impeccable. The perfect balance of efficiency and friendliness.
There is a lovely pool area and a zen garden which is truly gorgeous. We stayed in the garden lying on one of their day beds for hours reading... Truly serene...
We have been coming to Bali for years and this is perhaps our 20th visit, but our first to this side of the island. It will be our first of many visits and I would happily spend weeks here. Not for the shopping but for the ambience of this magical resort.
(We booked directly with the hotel and had a super quick response)
Book this resort with confidence for a perfect getaway!!

From the moment we arrived at Rama Candidasa until we left four days later we were treated as special guests for whom nothing was a problem. Staff were charming, helpful and efficient.The resort is located a 5 minute drive out of Candidasa in a quiet location on the ocean. It was well maintained (apart from some hot water problems experienced by our friends, although we had none) with delightful gardens and pretty floral arrangements throughout. The pool and its surrounds were very clean and attractive. Both pool and restaurant overlooked the ocean. The restaurant offered meals that were tasty and reasonably priced. Lots of fun was had from the free hotel activities of a rice paddy walk and yoga. Would recommend the hotel for those looking for a peaceful, pretty, clean, relaxing getaway.

Room Tip: Ask for hot water plumbed well

July 2014: Nice beachfront resort, beautiful pool and gardens, nice restaurant with friendly staf, and reasonnably priced good food! Very good breakfast buffet! Rooms, though clean, are old especially the bathrooms! The beds are very comfortable! Nice free activities organised by the hotel. A bit remote, but restaurants in Candidasa will be happy to pick you up! Not much to do in Candidasa, this is just a nice relaxing hotel! A critical note: We booked 2 deluxe rooms via booking.com and chose for the double bed preference! Upon arrival, me and my pregnant girlfriend, as well as my parents were told that there were no more rooms with a double bed... (Note that we arrived early in the afternoon!). Very disappointing start of our 4 days stay. The staf hid behind the booking agent for this problem, but that felt unfair and not taking responsibility! Reading through the reviews, you can see that more people had similar experience. "We just don't have enough rooms with a double bed..." Well, than just don't offer them online! After complaining and needing to be a bit angry, we were upgraded after the first night and had a great stay!

Room Tip: Check your booking/room/bed choice, this does not always guarantee your prefered bed!!!

Rama is very well maintained and attractive and probably one of the best of its type in the area. It is out of town and the walk is fraught because of the poor footpaths, but it is only $3 by taxi. If you know which restaurant you want in the evening most of them will pick up and drop off for free so it is great for the evening. We used to use this service and also go for a drink or two elsewhere after promising to come back so it worked out really well, like having a chauffeur

The hotel itself is a haven from town and has a great pool and relax area. God for breakfast was normal but not as good as some hotels I have stayed at.

Room Tip: No tip really, just what you want to pay. I enjoy the rural view from the cheaper rooms, nice verand...

We stayed at the Rama for 2 nights, our friends 3 nights. Our first night in Bali was not what we thought it would be, it was my friends FIRST overseas trip, and we ended up with the screwded up booking (Murphy's law came into play), we went with 4 other friends and asked for rooms near the pool, together, which we had upgraded on our initial booking on a special deal, but our friends decided that they would upgrade when they got there. The hotel it seemed was booked out over the days we were there with a huge government seminar. So that when our friends upgraded and paid cash they ended up getting our initial room, so for our first night in Bali with our 4 other female friends, my room friend and I ended up in a totally different hotel (Puris Bagus) which really but a damper on our celebrating her first night outside of Australia... But putting all that aside, the 2 days we did spend at the Rama, we totally enjoyed ourselves.. the poolside atmosphere is great, the service was without compare, and because off our first bad night experience, they did make up for it with the service they gave to us. I highly recommend this hotel.. the staff are beautiful and could not help us enough..

Room Tip: ask for one of the junior rooms, they are worth the extra. there up the back, but are further away f...
