Great place for serious downtime

Reviewed April 17, 2012 NEW

We thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of Rama Candidasa. (We dislike the madness of touristic Kuta/Legian.) We spent most of our 12 day stay gazing past the palm trees and across a placid sea. The shushing of the waves was a lovely lullaby each night. Our room was a junior suite in the new section. It was spacious, had a huge bathroom with a great shower and a very comfortable king bed. I loved the pool area and its friendly, helpful staff. The day bed swings are great for lolling in too. The gardens are manicured and have a pleasing zen aesthetic. Food at the restaurant was ok for a few meals and most restaurants in town run a free taxi service, which we used - and a taxi into town is only Rup 20,000. Day trips to nearby attractions are easy to organise. WiFi and cable TV kept our teenage daughter entertained.
