Lotus bungalows are a well managed operation, the food is excellent, the rooms ( 2 rooms in a bungalow ) offer sea view and the outside bathroom is very nicely made. Everything is not brand new, but everything works and is comfortable. Airco is silent and provides good sleeping, as well as the peaceful distance from the main road, which makes the sound of the sea prevail over the buzz from the street.

Breakfast as buffet is deliberately slim to prevent flies and food waste, everything desired is provided upon order and prepared quickly. The food is excellent and since you can not dive on a bali belly, its hygiene is of a very good level. Furthermore the Europeaan management is extremely careful with regard to allergies such as glutenallergy. We discussed this during our first visit and now during out second no reminder was required and everything was already set on point.

The pool is nice and the benches around it provide a good lounge experience after diving.

The diving with ganga divers is very well organised with precision. Lunch is provided on most ( longer ) trips. And the crew and local dive masters know the spots and create a safe dive. For each level of experience a dive can be organised, and the reefs around nusa penida are beatifull, tulamben with the liberty wreck provides a land based dives and padangbai provides very nice dive spots with many unexpected species like seahorses etc.

The fellow divers provide good company and the staff is open to adaption to special wishes.

We stayed in bungalow 112 that had beautiful views of the pool and ocean for 11 nights.
All of the staff were amazing from swapping emails before we arrived up until the moment we left. The reception/ office staff were really friendly and helpful and greeted you with a huge smile!
The bungalow was spacious and had a fantastic outdoor bathroom - although you do feel like you should have sun tan cream on to shower!
The bungalow was cleaned twice each day - while we were at breakfast and again while we were out on an evening. This was to a very high standard and little flowers were placed around the room and bathroom each day which was a lovely gesture. The water bottles in the room were also topped up without charge twice a day - this is excellent as we’ve always had to buy our own water once we’d finished the small ones you normally get in your room in most other places.
Breakfast was excellent - hot food cooked to order with the cold options on a buffet which was always topped up with fresh fruit and juices.
Beautiful view out over the ocean while we relaxed on the very comfortable sun lounges - sometimes we were the only people around the pool for most of the day as others went diving. The pool is lovely too and a welcome relief from the sun. Worth noting that it is quite difficult to get access to the small beach area - large steep steps which you can only use in low tide. But to be honest there’s only a small sandy area so go down in low tide for a dip in the crystal clear sea.
There are a couple of monitor lizards within the grounds which was great to see and a turtle popped up in the sea at high tide right in front of the hotel too most days.
We didn’t eat in the hotel on an evening as we like to venture out but we did enjoy a few lunches and superb fresh fruit smoothies in the restaurant - really tasty and value for money. Especially the freshly made pizzas!
We walked into town most nights - takes about 10-15 minutes. Plenty of places to eat and drink in town for those who like to see more than the hotel.
Candidasa is very clean and there is a real focus on reducing rubbish especially plastic which is great to see - we went to Lombok last year and the sea was full of plastic. We didn’t see any rubbish in the sea here at all! The resort even give you a fabric bag in your room and ask you to use this when shopping to avoid getting plastic bags - excellent idea!
All in all we loved Lotus Bungalows and we hope to return again soon.

Spent 12 nights in Lotus Bungalows. Friendly, hard working staff. Clean, simply appointed rooms. Love the fresh flowers placed in rooms daily. Outdoor bathroom was beautiful and serene. Close to ocean but no beach unfortunately. Gorgeous infinity pool with comfortable seating around. Nice restaurant with good food, good prices. Easy walk into town from resort. The scuba diving operation is exceptional. Great crew. Would highly recommend staying in Lotus Bungalows fow peaceful, calm holiday. You will be well cared for.

Room tip: Rooms closer to the water can be a bit louder (ocean sounds) if you dont mind that. It can be soothing actually.
