Serene hotel with a nice architecture. Dispite its pretty distant location from Candidasa this hotel is well located to discover the east of Bali. The noisy room airco has only 2 positions: freezing & cooking.Shuttle service stops already around 5. The restaurant looks nice but the food is only moderate (with far too expensive drinks).
In terms of facilities, the hotel was superficially excellent - there were things like complimentary water with meals and at the poolside. If you like a holiday where the hotel takes care of everything for you in terms of organising activities and trips, this is probably the place for you. They also have complimentary shuttles to both Candidasa and Tenganan, which is great. I found it a bit too "organised", not to say claustrophobic. I had to give my room number constantly for things - even water by the pool - I began to wonder whether I should tatoo the number on my forehead! When I left the complex in the evening to have dinner elsewhere, I was questioned about where I was going like I was a kid. Drinks were overpriced, as was the food. The pool was very shallow, except right in the centre - great for kids but not much use if you wanted to swim.
Garden and superb sea view (the best in Canda Dasa!) Shower hose is way too short, room is very basic and because it's an outdoor bathroom a fan would be nice!
I really enjoyed the swimming pool just close to the sea...
the beautifull sea-view, kind, helpfull staf and the garden are the + points. _ points: the bungalow is too basic: no chair and table inside. The lightning was very economical: in the evening you even can't read a book !!!!This is a good place for a few days rest. Dinner is very bad. Go to a local reataurant at the corner or Balissima. At Vincents we had a very bad expiriment.(Tripadvisor)
Very nice having the verandah with chairs to sit on and being close to the pool and beach and many other restaurants and the lagoon and the ashram. We were upgraded to the delux room at no extra charge. No storage room to leave your bags in after check out and before going to the airport. We were told to pay in US dollars but the bill was expressed in rupiah which made it less transparent.
The hotel is very new, nice balinese style, wonderful garden with nice sea view, helpfull staff, relaxing atmosphere. We liked the place and extended our stay. In Candidasa there are almost no natural sand beaches, but you can compensate this with the nice seaview hotel pool. After taking a shower the bathroom floor was halfway flooded. They told us they need to recheck the new drains.
