The coastal town of Candidasa offers a quiet getaway from the busy bustle of the south. Idyllic and picturesque, the town lends itself to couples and family vacationers seeking a relaxing seaside holiday, with days spent lounging by the beach, enjoying spa rituals or dining out at seafront restaurants. It’s also a great base to explore renowned dive spots and key historical sites in the surrounding vicinity.
Your Candidasa villa enjoys a prime beachfront location, with uninterrupted views over the ocean. Each villa comes equipped with amenities you’d expect of a five-star property: a sparkling pool, spacious tropical garden, beautifully appointed living spaces and impeccable guest services. Couples will appreciate the serene environment and ultimate privacy that our properties offer. Your villa manager will readily assist with special requests, such as organising in-villa dining experiences, couple spa treatments, cooking classes, yoga sessions and more.
Spend the day relaxing upon the palm-fringed shores of Pasir Putih. The warm waters are a joy to swim in, and offer gentle waves suitable for bodyboarding. Clear waters and a rich marine life offer excellent snorkeling. Snorkeling equipment may be rented from one of the local eateries dotted along the coast.
Plan your sightseeing trip around key cultural attractions like the Taman Ujung Water Palace and Tirta Gangga. Both of these are former royal residences with picturesque grounds, beautiful architecture and scenic surroundings. The Goa Lawah Temple is a large temple complex that derives its name from its location around the opening of a cave inhabited by bats (Goa Lawah translates to mean ‘Bat Cave Temple’). Round out your trip with a tour of the Tenganan Aga Village to discover the unique culture and lifestyle of the Bali Aga, or the aboriginal Balinese.
Amuk Bay and Blue Lagoon are must-visits for any diving enthusiast. Both attractions offer diverse marine life and dive conditions suitable for less experienced divers, although stronger currents may be present at Amuk Bay as one ventures closer to the surrounding islands.
Dine out at date-worthy venues like Vincent’s Restaurant, where European and Asian fare are enjoyed in a cosy setting complete with live jazz performances. Seasalt Restaurant, tucked away amidst the grounds of Alila Manggis offers poolside and garden dining, along with contemporary Indonesian and Balinese fare. La Rouge Restaurant and Bar has a great ambience and Garpu Restaurant is our venue of choice for seaside dining accompanied by excellent wine and seafood dishes.
