This is my villa in Bali which I am offering for rent in 2014. It has up to 3 bedroom and is located in a managed resort in the quiet east of the island.
Candidasa is the quiet end of Bali. It is a small village sandwiched between the hills and the sea with views out towards the undeveloped Nusa Penida and the west Lombok peninsula.
Bali Palms Resort is a small complex with all the facilities of a hotel but with private villas and apartments. There is a large swimming pool, bar, restaurant, and spa for relaxation. There is also a front desk with 24 hour cover which is able to provide help with any of your plans. A medical centre is also on site.
The villa itself has 3 bedrooms with air conditioning and ceiling fans in all rooms. The ground floor can be used as a 2 bedroom apartment with a small kitchen and large bathroom, private terrace and living area with satellite TV and media centre. Upstairs is a single bedroom with onsite shower and large balcony with sea views. There is also a private sun terrace which can be used by either floor.
The villa is about 1.5 hours from the airport. Transfers can be arranged on arrival. Contact me for details.
Candidasa has a good selection of local and western cuisine. The resort is situated at the west edge of the village and a shuttle bus runs up and down the village but walking the entire length is only about 20 minutes.
There is also a good selection of shops selling clothes and local arts and crafts.
The area is becoming more developed as a diving centre with good coral very near to the shore and more exciting diving at Nusa Penida with the genuinely named Manta Point, from experience. For marine photographers, the unused passenger liner port at Manggis is a real surprise.
Trekking through the rice padi is easily accessible all the way up to an ascent of Gunung Agung. The art centre of Ubud or the Beaskih or Danu temples are about an hour away.
20 minutes away is Padang Bai which is the main ferry terminal to Lombok and more remote places
