Place In 70 km from the airport, the capital city of Denpasar Bali island, on the picturesque bay of the Indian Ocean, far away from tourist bustle and noisy nightlife, there is a small town, the resort town - Candidasa. Translated as Ten Temples. In fact, the name Candidasa distorted from Cilidаsа- ten children, that it is logical because the main temple of the city devoted to Harita -goddess of soil fertility. This temple was building in the beginning of eleven century and very dearly cherished not only Balinese people, but also the residents from neighboring islands. Here come to pray all those who want to have children. The resort is located not far from of main highway between the northern and the southern Bali and this allows you easily to get any interested you place on the island. Chandidasa is a small town and just 15 years ago was a fishing village, but today local restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and SPA salons are able to satisfy the most outstanding tourists. In additions this resort town is a great place for diving, snorkeling and fishing. So in this beautiful and secluded location, among coconut palms and black volcanic beaches we have decided to build our hotel. Hotel The hotel > is a nine detached bungalows with spacious terraces and cool rooms equipped for your comfort air-conditioning, mini bar, fridge, coolers with hot and cold water, safes and free Wi-Fi Internet, personal hygiene items. The hotel has three different types of bungalows: -DeLuxe 64sq.m(2 bungalow) - two rooms with king size bad, outdoor bathroom and shower. -Double standart(4 bungalow) -room with Queen size bad, outdoor bathroom and shower. -Twin standart(2 bungalow) -room with two bads. outdoor bathroom and shower. Facilities The hotel has a swimming pool with jacuzzi and a bar/restaurant with national, homemade and European cusine. In the hotel, you can rent a car, moped, bicycle. Taxi for any place in the island. Buy tickets for the speed-boat to the surrounding islands. Enjoy a massage or use the spa salon, which is located near hotel. Delicious breakfast included in the price of the room. Welcome!!!

The greatest hotel in CantiDasa and CantiDasa itself ❤️ The owners know what is hotel business and hospitality itself, everything is made with love to people and nature. The spacy rooms, the huge bathroom with bathtub outside, the pool with warm(🔥) water, beautiful garden and the restaurant with tasty homemade food. Service is on the level! CantiDasa is so beautiful and the beach is so close to the hotel. Also they organised the trip by the boat where I caught 10 kgs Mahi-Mahi and even treated me with it for dinner. Highly recommended.

I didnt book any accommodations when i arrived in candidasa, and i checked many rooms around here, and my choice is this colourful place. I really hope to extend more days if i dont have flight ticket Nice quite chill but funky place. Room and bathroom was spacious and clean well maintained. There are fancy swimming pool and yoga shala so it was perfect place for retreat. Jenya is always so helpful, whenever i asked something i got an answer in 5 mins. I hope to come back this place soon thank you jenya :)

I spent 2 nights there with friends. We just wanted a couple of quiet days before heading back to the hustle and bustle of Kuta. The rooms are a decent size and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed having the pool right there and made good use of it.The "open air" bathroom was different. I appreciated the outside sitting area, fridge and hot and cold drinking water. Staff were very helpful and organised a driver for us at very short notice when something went wrong with our arrangements. Supermarket, beach, eateries and temple are all within walking distance. Whilst you don't have ocean views you have views of the garden. Breakfast was good with the usual fare of eggs, porridge, etc.

I was looking for a small, nice, and quiet place to be away from the crowds, and this hotel fit the bill perfectly. 5 days flew by, and I can't wait to go back. This is not a beachfront hotel, but it's super close to a beautiful sandy beach. I went to this beach a couple of times and I was there alone. What a wonderful way to relax! While staying there, I took a boat to snorkel and explore other nearby beaches. Make sure to ask the owner, Eugene (a.k.a Zhenya), for help with arranging a boat and also trips to the waterfalls, volcanoes, etc. Eugene himself is an excellent tour guide. He is clearly in love with Bali and he makes sure his guests enjoy it to the fullest.

Have eaten here a few times and the food is always good and fresh. Beer & wines available. They do good, filling breakfasts. Very good fresh salads. Friendly staff. BBQ platters also available. The menu is quite huge! A small selection of desserts as well.

Went here with a group of people. My friend and I shared a room, they brought in an additional full sized bed for me to sleep on, I opted to sleep with my friend on the original bed in the room as it was more comfy. I was caught off guard because the room looked similar to a hostel bedroom... BUT the outdoor private bath that was connected to our room was killer. Such good ambiance, and to take a bath in the HUGE tub was splendid. We even both got poolside massages performed around 8pm at night in the dark next to the beautiful pool... it was awesome. The food I ordered for dinner was tasty and breakfast was great as well. Definitely a great place to stay at.

I spent one night here on my way to a nearby yoga retreat at another hotel. On arrival, I was exhausted and grumpy, my case had gone missing and I was trying to deal with a taxi driver who apparently had no change! To make matters even worse, there was a moment of miscommunication when it seemed that I had no room booked. However, all of this was quickly resolved and the staff made me feel really at home. Their kindness and understanding meant so much to me as a lone female traveller. My bungalow was clean, comfortable and very spacious, if a little sparsely furnished, and the bathroom was huge! It was fun having an outdoor bathroom, although I did have to share it with beetles, ants, a spider and geckos but it goes with the territory I suppose! There was also a nice outdoor porch area to sit in, which had a nice view over the gardens and pool. There was a water cooler and safe but on the downside, the rattan-style blinds on my floor to ceiling windows left me feeling a bit exposed, especially when the light was on. I used the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and was impressed with the food and friendly service. Overall I had a great stay and would consider Arco Iris again, mainly because it was clean, quiet, had great staff and felt close to nature!

Arco Iris is located in a very calm place Candidasa nearby ocean. We’re stayed in the hotel 10 excellent days in September. It was very relaxed atmosphere. Every morning we were awakened by singing roosters and in the evenings our ears were delighted by geckos. Of course, the hotel has big well-furnished bungalows, a good clean deep pool, fast Wi-Fi, good cuisine and normal prices for drinks in the restaurant, clean rooms, soft pillows, etc. However, brilliant feature of the hotel is man with name Zhenya and his staff. Zhenya is owner of the hotel and he made our days. Zhenya originally from Moscow but many years he lives in Bali and knows Balinese language and culture in some cases even better than locals know. Zhenya very gladly shares all information he has and he can manage your local trips and adventures. From our point, you must visit waterfalls Gili. Views are fantastic and if you brave enough you will be able to jump from 10 and 18 meters cliffs. Also Zhenya can organize night tracking on volcanos. There are two volcanos on the island Batur and Agung. We postponed the climbing on a next time. Regarding water pleasures. Hotel’s watchman with name Bayan at the same time is a fishmen with his own boat. So if you OK to wake up in 4 am, than you will be able to enjoy a popping or trolling. By the way, our breakfasts “to go” were ready exactly in time, 4:30 am (thanks to the kitchen staff). My wife were so encouraged that we fished two times. After fishing, this is reasonable to visit on the same boat a “white sand beach”. There are a lot of “varungs” (local cafes) where your fish will be roasted or grilled by your taste for a normal price. On the top, you’ll be able to use all day sunbeds and sunshades for free. And of course I can’t pass over in silence a diving. First reason because it was our first dive. Second is a world famous “Liberty” is very close to the hotel. Third and main reason is a perfect company that taught and assisted us. Zhenya and his friend, dive master Patricia, organized for us an unforgettable dive. A couple words about Patricia. Originally she is from Spain, lives in Bali and Philippines many years. By our own experience, we can confirm that she is very and very professional. Patricia works in «Southern Dreams Diving Club». So, if you need to spend a vacation with your spouse or with your friends in atmosphere of calmness and with interesting adventures Arco Iris is a right place.

We had dinner in this restaurant as it is close to the place we are staying at. The staff are friendly and the menu is varied and interesting. The food was fresh and tasty . We were the only couple there but as the place is hidden away from the main road in a quiet location and as this is low season , it's not unusual. There are steps up to the restaurants but just a few (advise for elderly or wheelchair people)

I came from Melbourne Australia, stayed in Arco Iris for a week and loved every minute of it! Accomodation was spotless, the restaurant menu provided a wide variety of freshly cooked delicious meals. The staff was always at hand and very attentive.The owners Tatiana and Jenia were around to help. On my request Jenia planned a couple of interesting trips for me, Tatiana organised a car for travel, a good massage and a scuba diving trip on a short notice, Both were very welcoming and made me feel at home. I stayed at the hotel alone but never felt lonely. Lovely people, lovely hotel, very reasonable price. I am definitely coming back again!
