On the sandy shore of Mendira Beach, flanked by palm groves and mountain views, the Candi Beach Resort and Spa is a wonderful place to rest up and relax while exploring the rural rice fields and crumbling stone temples of eastern Bali.
From the resort, you can wander along the small golden beach, snorkel and dive using the on-site dive center, or adventure along the bike and walking trails that lead into the countryside of Candidasa.
The property has a variety of room types, including small Balinese bungalows that dot the lush gardens, luxury ocean view suites, which offer unparalleled views of the ocean and Nusa Penida Island, and charming pool villas that are tucked away at the back of the property and have their own gardens.
This resort is a great option for guests staying in the Candidasa area, boasting excellent facilities and one of the best oceanfront locations in the area. The luxury suites and pool villas offer great value and are worth considering as an upgrade.

The resort has several different room categories, all with air conditioning and en suite bathrooms.

The deluxe ocean rooms are located in a two-floor building and each have a balcony where you can enjoy views over the gardens and a partial view of the sea.
Balancing traditional Balinese and modern styles, the spacious junior and luxury ocean view suites have floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as additional amenities such as a coffee machine and TV.

The area lies in the shadow of Mount Agung and is home to Besakih, the Mother Temple, as well as Taman Ujung Water Palace and Tirta Gangga, a beautiful Balinese water garden. You're also within easy reach of the rural fields of Sidemen, and close to the launch point for reaching the Gili Islands and Lombok.
