I’ve been to Bali so many times but it was my first time staying in Candidasa. It’s a short two hour drive from the airport and is located on the Eastern side of Bali.
This place is perfect if you wanting some downtime with your family, friends or even partner. Most of the accommodation here features smaller hotels as it’s a lot less commercial then central Bali.
I spent my days lazing by the pool, taking day trips to near by beaches and at night heading to local bars in town. Everything about this place is low key so its easy spend 3 nights here and feel like you’ve been here for a week.
I stayed at the Ganesh Lodge Hotel which was amazing. It’s as though they know your there to relax, unwind and get away from the outside world just for a few days.
The rooms are spacious with mini lounges and balcony views that overlook the tropical surroundings of this small hotel. Every morning your treated to selection of breakfast choices along with room service and refreshments all day. Simple never felt so good.
So chill by the pool, indulge in a few cocktails (their mojitos are the bomb) and make sure your try their Nasi Campur, it’s the best I’ve ever had.
