Reviewed 11 May 2014

Right from moment one, our stay was pleasant. The location of the property is awesome, at the cusp of two hillocks on a beach. Days here pass like dreams, one can spend hours gazing at the turquoise waters and sailboats languidly rowing by. The hospitality of the staff is admirable. Possibly owing to the small size of the property (just 17 villas), guests are pampered by the personalized attention of the staff. The food is good too and the breakfast spread is lavish. The rooms are spacious, clean and tastefully designed. Overall, a great experience that played a significant role in making our vacation memorable. Book well in advance since they tend to run full during the peak season. The only grouch is the wi-fi connectivity, which tends to flag occasionally inside the villas, but we found no issues with the speed in the open (terrace, poolside or restaurant). Our verdict : An abode of beauty and tranquility that gives excellent value for money.

I have nothing bad to say about my stay at the Chandi.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious. We had an ocean view room which I recommend. We had lovely views of bali, the ocean and were right next to the pool.
I can't say enough good things about the staff who provided the best service at all times. The restaurant was amazing, plenty of variety on offer and breakfast is amazing! Saturday nights are BBQ night. For AU$18 you can have an all you can eat BBQ feast. Absolutely yum!
All in all a perfect 11 night stay. Even tho every staff member was amazing and Always so friendly and helpful a special thanks goes to Ayu and Abdulla :) a friendly chat and always greeting us by name, it goes a long way!
Thanks to the team at Chandi, we will recommend you to all of our friends and family

It was 4 of us (two couples) and rented two villas with ocean view.What I can definitely say is that the photos don't really do it justice, it looks far more impressive in real life. The rooms are extremely clean and spacious with beautiful views! The food is also really good. We found it a bit pricey for Indonesia, so took a taxi to the town nearby. There are a few places with extremely good food. Overall, it is one of the best places we stayed when visiting Indonesia. It was sad to leave but we will definitely go back there one day:)

This hotel is stunning, and if it were anywhere else in the world you could expect to pay double or triple the going rate that the Chandi charge. The grounds are beautiful with huge tall palm trees all over giving it a really tropical atmosphere. The photos don't really do it justice, it looks far more beautiful and impressive in real life. The location is right on the beach, just a 5 minute taxi ride outside of Senggigi. You can see Bali's Mount Agung in the distance and there are some spectacular sunsets that can be enjoyed while sipping BOGOF cocktails in the hotel bar at happy hour. The hotel is very small and despite being fully booked we often found we had the pool area all to ourselves, perfect for relaxing and chilling out. The rooms are all separate villas, huge spacious bedrooms with an outdoor bathroom at the back. Showering during a heavy downpour was a real experience! I would definitely pay the extra for the ocean view rooms. The garden view rooms are set further back next to the road so would probably be more noisy. Breakfast was lovely, it's a la carte but included in the room price, and you can order as much or as little as you like. The lunch and dinner menus were not the best, the food was very overpriced for the quality and portion size that was served. It's fair to say that western cuisine is not their strength. We had dinner at the hotel once and it was very disappointing so we ate out all other nights. The only other downside is the early wake up calls in the form of mosques and overly enthusiastic cockerels. Some of the calls to prayer were as early as 4:30am.. and the birds would start crowing when it was still dark. It woke me up the first night but I managed to get back to sleep easily, and I noticed the noise less each night I was there. If you are a light sleeper either bring ear plugs or consider a non-muslim destination where calls for prayer won't be an issue. Service is excellent, the staff are smiley and attentive and speak really good English. In conclusion I would have given this hotel 5 stars, but the restaurant and early morning noise brings it down to 4. I would stay at this beautiful resort again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Splash out on the ocean view rooms, it is definitely worth the extra $$.

They do the little things well. Attentive and proactive like preparing chairs with towels in the morning, offering fruit kebabs in the afternoon, turndown...and the list goes on. Nice spacious rooms. We were in an ocean view room and were very comfortable. I would say the only drawbacks are the multitude of rooster which crow like gang busters and the call to prayer at all hours of the night/morning. Oh, and the food is also VG. A pleasurable stay...thank you Chandi.

Stayed here for two nights with friends.If you objective for your holiday was purely for rest and retreat then look no further.
The ambience at the Chandi is understated yet elegant and very comfortable.
The villas were airy and bright,large,well maintained and clean.The washroom facility was truly "au naturale" ;a refreshing and delightful experience.
The grounds were landscaped beautifully and well managed. As was the pool.
The staff (especially May)are to be commended highly for their warm and friendly assistance. Services were rendered not only effectively but efficiently too.
Food and beverage services were excellent too.The a la carte menu for breakfast not only offered variety but was generous and yummy too. We had the Saturday BBQ buffet which was also as good.
I can go on and on with positive praise about this resort but won't
In retrospect I think the only negative point I have to make is that one should wear shoes when approaching the ocean for a swim in front of the resort. The beach is kept clean however the ocean floor had an acute drop gradient and had a lot of fragmented coral which does feel sharp to the soles of your feet.
The Chandi is an excellent choice to make if you want peace and quiet however if you want boozy and jiggy nights out please look elsewhere.

Room Tip: the rooms by the pool; but not immediately by it,could perhaps be a better option for a quieter stay...
