Recent guest reviews
We stayed at Rama Candidasa for 5 nights for our honeymoon, and the experience was wonderful. The hotel is clean, well maintained and beautifully appointed. We could spend the afternoon just looking at the beautiful gardens and decorations. The beach view was excellent, and there were plenty of chairs for lounging and watching the ocean. Pool was well maintained and elegant. There were a variety of options for the food, including Balinese food, and the staff was attentive and passionate about the dining experience. We went on three of the treks and the "Relaxation Walk" and we would recommend them for others who are in reasonable shape. The staff inquired about our desired exercise level, and ensured that we were accommodated. We got great exercise and wonderful insights from our guide (Toto SP?) about Balinese culture, farming practices and ecology. We both got massages by the pool, and they were very relaxing. The service was exceptional all around. Any time we needed something, the staff was there to help. They arranged for a driver during our excursions. They called the airport on our behalf to find our lost luggage. They made sure that we had food and water for all of our events. The house cleaning and laundry service was top-notch. They were always pleasant and efficient with excellent follow-through. They made sure we were taken care of when a volcano warning disturbed our commute to the airport. Nengah was our driver, and he also went above and beyond to make sure we got to the airport for our departure (and other driving duties). We would heartily recommend this hotel to others looking to stay in Bali, but there are a few things to note. The beach near the hotel was pretty to look at, but this stretch of beach is not really good for swimming (although possible). There is lots of coral and there are lots of small boats in the water near the area. White Sand beach, which is near by, is much better for swimming. If you are a traveler looking for nightlife with clubs and bars and lots of single people, this is also probably not the spot for you. There is a nice bar at the hotel, but it is mostly couples or families at the hotel, and there did not look to be good options in town. The only issue we really had was the hot water. It is possible that we were just not operating the shower correctly, but we experienced fluctuations in temperature. Not a big deal for adults, but it is something to watch for if you have small kids. Finally, note that this is not an all-inclusive resort. Expect to pay for most excursions and additional services, but the price was very reasonable. We ate every meal at the hotel and used many of the services, and our bill at the end of our stay was well within our budget. Highly recommended for couples and families looking for a low-stress stay in Bali, and we would go again.
This incredible resort sits on a dramatic stretch of coastline offering stunning sunsets and sunrises. The grounds are meticulous and beautifully maintained along with the characteristic Bali fresh flower petal offerings that are changed daily and sit perched among the walkways. The staff is lovely and so willing to accommodate your needs. The rooms, particularly those close to the sounds of the crashing waves, are so restful, clean and spacious. I simply loved my stay here and would eagerly return. My routine was to wake early, make a cup of instant coffee provided in the room and go sit in one of the cabanas on the sand to watch the sunrise. It was very hard to leave this place.
We had such a fantastic stay here which was not only due to the beautiful accommodation but also because of the fantastic staff they employ here. Our room was beautifully light and airy with really comfortable beds and pillows. 30 seconds from our room and you were at the restaurant and pool area. Breakfast was a very varied buffet and you could also have eggs, omelettes, fruit pancakes etc cooked to order. The restaurant menu I thought was very reasonably priced especially for the standard of hotel we were staying in. They also had additional buffet menus in the evening which you could choose such as suckling pig, sate evenings etc. The quality of food was exceptional and Inwould challenge even the fussiest of eaters to be impressed. The staff were some of the friendliest I think I have encountered and really make an effort to kremember your name and give the best service possible. I will have great memories of our time there enjoying amazing food to the sound of the crashing waves but most of all meeting the amazing staff who make this place so fabulous. Than you to everyone at Rama Candidasa for giving us some truly fantastic memories.
This hotel is more than 5 Star hotel ,everything was more than perfect ,you feel you are at home , All staff at this hotel do their best to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable ,they let you need nothing everything you ask for they do in very short time if not on the spot . Location is perfect and good for all kind of travellers .The food was also first class with menus that suit everyone taste and you can order whatever you want and they do for you . In short the hotel is excellent in everything and you will feel that from the first moment you arrive and till the last moment you depart .
We decided to have a weekend away from the traffic, noise pollution and kuta. With a lovely drive up to the east coast and the breath taking scenery on route passing many ceromies of the local people. Arriving at the resort with the warm welcome, cool towels and smoothy taste drinks. You know it was time to check in to a slice of paradise as we had requested an early arrival to check in and jump in. The front office staff are all special in ways with a little perfection and style. Escorted down the path towards the ocean and the sound of crashing waves in the distance as we get closer and closer to see the sea. Front row of lovely cottages with ocean views and a cool breeze flowing in across the ocean. Stepping in to the beautiful suite with everything you need for three to five days, soft beds, great pillows and a beautiful bathroom. Everyone and everything was fabulous not one person to thank but all as a team you made this break a wonderful one again and Thank you. Room service from the restaurant was well spent money, no need to move they were looking to service and fast too. Circulating the pool for any needs. Service and hospitality they have both in Rama Candidasa.
After visiting The Rama last year, all I have wanted to do, was come back! When checking in again last month, we were greeted by the staff and Dewi, the resort manager, who had upgraded us to the same bungalow I stayed in last year! During our 7 day stay, we could not have been treated better ....we felt like royalty! Dewi checked in with us just about every day, as did Sugiani. When everyone calls you by your first name, you truly feel like part of the family, so thank you to ALL the staff....:-) Dewi's welcome note in our bungalow, was an extra lovely touch! It was also amazing to see the many changes since 12 months ago. Last year, "our" bungalow was dark and the patio was hot since it was located at the end of the lane. Now that is has been opened up, not only is there a fantastic view, but also a cool sea breeze. BIG improvement! The unsafe viewing platform has been made safe and stable - a great place to take photos from! The restaurant looks much more spacious and bright, also a big improvement. Unfortunately, the food was mot as good as I remember it and also pricier than 12 months ago. The breakfast package for members, is half price however, so that was a pleasant surprise! Happy hour has been changed to 20% off, instead of 2 for the price of one. I remember all the cocktails coming past last year, whereas this year, hardly anyone around the pool was ordering them. Maybe something for the restaurant manager to review? The Zen garden was as gorgeous and peaceful as I remember it and I again loved spending time there. The pool is big and a wonderful place to spend time in. The little town of Candidasa with its shops and restaurants is only a short taxi ride away. Overal, it remains one of the most beautiful and wonderful resorts I have ever stayed in and it will not be hard to twist my arm for future stays! Thank you again for making our week at the Rama so special!!
I never come to east part of Bali before, And i tried to stay arround Candidasa area, and i have stayed in hiden paradise. Waw so amaze to stay here.

May be for every one try to stay in Rama Candidasa All is zero complain
We are currently staying here and are very disappointed with the resort. Positives: big large rooms Very nice view of sea view with sun beds to relax Impressive lobby Negatives: Poor internet ( you can barely watch a youtube video) Poor service - most staff cannot speak English well. They don't seem to be engaged and try to make your stay better. Restaurant - is not that great for vegetarians. It had poor whisky selection( no single malt). The breakfast was similar to what you have at travel-lodge. They charge you for coffee at breakfast. There was argument between staff and another guest over the quality of orange juice. The room toiletries are no where close to what you get in a 4 star hotel. The activities in the resort are close to nothing. There is walks around the resort, and yoga. I came here thinking this has good reviews. But it seems the resort is cutting corners on quality of staff, activities, service provided. I won't recommend this resort for your stay at chandidasa.
For a relaxing holiday Rama Candi Dasa is the place with its beautiful gardens fantastic staff lead by Dewi Resort Manager, front office manager Darma, and ops manager Sugiani who with there teams are very supportive helpful to make sure your holiday is relaxed and do every thing in there power to make sure your holiday is a memorable one . It has a lovely pool overlooking the ocean,attached is a children's and do not leave without trying the spa there is a very good gym as well The rooms are very spacious clean and well appointed the resort has lots of activities including diving & snorkeling as well as fishing & sailing. Recommended experiences are refreshing morning walks are excellent also the Rice Paddy Trek has a 50 minute car transfer return and then 1 hour 30 minute trek where you meet the local village farmers and spectacular scenery including rice paddies you can do this at your own pace.A must is the GARPU Restaurant which normally includes a fantastic breakfast in the quoted price with many choices lunch & dinner are also excellent with an array of food to choose from at reasonable prices with wonderful service . if you are looking for a relaxing holiday give Rama Candi Dasa a try you will not be disappointed
Comfortable,well appointed room with garden access, oceanfront area with plenty of lounges, comfortable pool area and relaxing zen garden to while away the hours. The restaurant overlooks the ocean and offers excellent food and service. Best of all are the friendly and helpful staff who are always there to make sure your stay is everything you expect and more. We'll be back.
