My husband and I stayed at Rama Candidasa Resort & Spa for 2 days as part of our Bali honeymoon trip. All in all I would say that you get great value for the money you are paying. But they could definitely improve the service. This was the only hotel that didn't offer us any specials for honeymoon and declined to give us a room upgrade even though half of the hotel was empty at the time. The staff at the restaurant is very unfriendly and ignoring you a lot. And the food is average I would say. I am still giving this hotel 4 stars, as I think that it is good value for what you are paying, but wouldn't come back.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Rama Candidasa. Stayed in a third floor room with a nice balcony view. Pool was great and restaurant food quite good compared to many hotel restaurants. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Appreciated the special service we got when we required a laundry cleaning of our daughter's wedding dress, as she had got married in Bali the week before. My wife also really enjoyed the massage she had at the Hotel Spa. Only negative was the Wi Fi connection which was inconsistent. Overall a very relaxing place to stay.

Rama Candidasa is a great property. We opted for Hotel Unit. Which is very spacious. Resort is really very Good. Facilities are excellent. They have swimming pool overlooking Indian ocean. Restaurant is really good.

We stayed in a second floor room, that was tastefully decorated. The pool is great, and you can hear the waves crashing whilst reading your book on the lounge chairs around the pool. The beach is pretty ordinary, but the pool was so good anyway!! Restaurant is great, we had breakfast and dinner there every day (for the week) We ventured into town ( driver provided by the resort at 'set' times, but once was enough. The is a beautiful Water Lilly lake in town that you can walk around, and in doing so, you'll come across a spot where they will take you in their boats for trips here and there across the bay. The resort was so quitet for 6 days, but then a school group arrived and our peace and quiet was shattered. Staff were excellent, and the dinner 'staff' got to know us, and knew what we liked.... so impressed. Thank you for a great time

I stayed here for 3 nights! I couldn't have found a better place to start my trip in Bali. The Calm of the place is overwhelming. The Staff are definitely courteous and are really fun to talk to and experience the culture of Bali. I made a lot of friends and I swear to come back here everytime I am in Bali. Putra, Suwela, Agus, Merta, Luhde, and Suprawata! Some of the staff who truly made this place feel like home!

We chose Rama Candidasa for the quiet side of the island with old world charm and its beachfront. The highlight here was the food, their service levels and the couples massage in the spa. This was relaxing and yet close to water temples and the east coast sites. We went up to Amed for a day of snorkeling. Which was awesome. This might be an older property but it is well maintained and is beautifully landscaped. The crashing waves of the ocean offer the perfect backdrop to this quaint resort.

This hotel is quite a long way out of town and located down a long driveway. We booked this as a timeshare exchange week. I was aware this meant a room in the tower block as a basic room. had previously emailed the resort requesting a price to upgrade to a cottage. Initially I was told an extra USD$50/n. Then I asked again just before we left, and was told USD$80/n for a seafront cottage but they only had single beds. Again, as an extra USD$560 for the week, forget it!! When we arrived, the Regent sales guy had a chat with us and offered it to us for USD$40/n but I still couldn't see the value in it as we'd seen 4* hotels in Kuta for less than that. Never mind! When we checked in we were also offered a meal package as an extra cost which we declined. Our room was in the tower block but it is only 3 stories high (NO elevator!) and I had previously requested Ground Floor due to my physical limitations. The room was close to Reception and had been renovated so was very pleasing. The shower over bath (as usual) was a bit of a challenge for me to get in/out of. The only "down"side was the fact there were NO drawers and only about 5 coathangers. When you think that most timeshare places are there for a week it was somewhat challenging to say the least - plus we were travelling for 4 weeks so we had more than most. The fridge was a small bar-fridge style with no ice tray. We got 2 small bottles of water daily. If you want ice you have to walk to the bar to get a glass of it, or pay for a bucket of it. The WiFi is a bit spasmodic and you have to keep signing in every time you use it. We went to the restaurant for coffee one morning and no-one understood us when we asked for a pricelist as most guests choose an inclusive rate for food. The pool was lovely and overlooked the beach. It didn't have any rails to assist with getting in to it and the steps were very steep (warning for the mobility impaired!!) The hotel has a daily shuttle - into town 10am & pick up 12md. So it wasn't very helpful for dining. If you wanted to go outside that time it was 30,000rp in & 60k back. No taxis in this town but most restaurants will collect you and return to hotel for no charge. Outside the hotel there's a small warung where we had a meal (just basic stuff) & a laundry which we utilised.

Me and boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights. OH MY GOD I LOVE IT! I love everything in this resort. The studio room was very clean, the restaurant was amazing with a delicious food in there. And Tama, the front liner, he is a nice guy!! Definitely will comeback again!!

A great beach property.Rooms are decorated as Traditional Balinese house.They are clean,cozy and with all modern facilities.Ocean front cottages are best location wise.Bathroom is pretty big..good quality free toiletries are supplied.Swimming pool is actually infinity pool with adjoining spa area.Restaurant is just hanging over the ocean.Food quality is good.Traditional Balinese dishes as well as western cuisine is available.Bar facility is also there.Staffs are very helpful,friendly and prompt.Best feature of this property is a library with great collection.It's a great place to explore Bali's eastern coast.

I just got back from a week long vacation in Bali and I have no words to sum up my experience. Whenever I travel to a new place, I like to soak in every bit of that place...what it really stands for. Rama Candidasa, for me, represents all-things-unforgettable about Bali. The beautiful people, the lush greenery, the crystal waters of the ocean and the rich culture. The hotel architecture and furnishing represents the cultural heritage of Bali. The property is embedded in plentiful greenery and sits right on the gorgeous waters which you can gaze at for hours. The staff is upright and forthcoming and also warm and friendly...I've never had so many members of any hotel staff remember my 5-year old son's name...they literally made friends with him!!! All these factors with a dash of beautiful weather gave us the fondest much that it left a lot of it in me. We travelled to some other places like: Ubud - oodles of culture and handicrafts nested in greenery & waterfalls White Sand Beach - Crystal turquoise waters...giant waves lashing against the rocks Seminyak, Kuta & Jimbaran - "uber" side of Bali...chic with shopping centers and malls and of course the un-missable Rock Bar! Balinese food was delightful and we never had a bad meal. We explored many restaurants in Candidasa town and found Vincent's the best of the lot...great food, service and music. Bali is best experienced with a lot of time and a free mind...can't wait to get back!
