“Like a dream”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We went to these hotel because our travel agence recomended us. It was a very, very good experience. We enjoyed diving and relaxing at the hotel. The views are excepcionally. The rroms are perfec and the bathroom si special (see you the photo below). Only one thing: there is not enough light in the dinnigroom, but I think is because the mosquitoes? The diving center is perfect:the people, the organization, the boats, simply perfect!!!

My friend and I made 7 dives with Gangga Divers. They are very professional. We felt safe while diving and had a lot of fun with the whole team. They have as well an excellent service, so we had the same guide for all the 7 dives and they cleaned our equipment and when it was dry, they brought it to our room. Special thanks to Gede (our very good divemaster) to show us the Mola Mola :-D and Henriette for the good customer service.

We were in the Lotus Bungalows for 5 nights in April. We felt like home, cause the staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean. They clean the rooms two times a day. The bathroom is outside, which is special. The garden area around is very well kept. The pool is right in front of the ocean and aswell clean. Candidasa is nice but very quiet.
Many thanks to everyone who made our stay there so wonderful.

Such a beautiful place.
You can't beat having an infinity pool on the ocean in front of you and an on-site dive shop behind you with gorgeous bungalows in between.
The bathrooms are AMAZING. They're open to the sky and the staff fill them with fresh flowers every day.
The pizza here is some of the best I've had ever. Seriously. Ever.

We came here for one or two nights but stayed for 5 nights. Very nice and very clean resort, fabulous pool, very friendly service. My favourite was outside bathroom, so romantic. The location was out of the centre but it was calm and quiet.

Bungalow accommodation (about 16- but joined 2 together so 8 different blocks). Beautiful grounds, pool is fab (especially if you have small children as it has many different levels). Air con is fine for the room (which is not huge but big enough - you wont spend much time there anyway). Outside bathroom - not my cup of tea but clean and big. If taking children there will not be enough room for much of a sleeping area in the rooms - they are quite small.
The view is very special right on the ocean (as in maybe 30 metres away).
Owners run dive shop on premises so easy to get to and from the many brilliant dive areas. its about a 10 min walk into town - don't expect your usuall Bali shops etc - town is just a lovely small area with lots of quaint good restaurants some variety shops a couple of money exchange places and about 4 convenience store etc. Restaurant at the Lotus is really good. breakfast is very simple - eggs and bacon, some cereal and toast coffe and tea - thats it. I love the locationand quietness of the Lotus Bungalow and we plan to go back soon.

Stayed 5 days over Christmas 2013, Villas are basic but clean and good value for the price. We had a beachfront villa which was great to hear the ocean on the beach. Not too many people @ this resort because it is small, which was nice. Also quite spacious & big pool right on waterfront.
Gangga Dive also on same site, did 6 dives. Very professional, good equipment, generous guide ratio, also they have 2 of their own dive boats in Padang Bai, very seaworthy unlike some companies I saw diving off canoes ! Very safety focused, refused to dive @ one spot where currents were dangerous, other operators were just letting their clients drop in and take their chances, a few days before 2 tourists were swept away from their guide with another company in strong current and found (alive) 24 hours later by fishermen, so if you are not cautious things can go wrong here !
Saw many great things underwater, liked Liberty Wreck dive the best but Shark Point also great, all dives were good, saw so many turtles I got tired of filming them, could have touched them we were so close.
The restaurant on site had excellent Italian food, Asian food nothing special, dozens of restaurants within walking distance so no problem for choice in Candidasa, all nationalities catered for.
No TV in room which didn't worry us, but might annoy some customers.

Would definitely stay there again, loved the Scuba around that area !
