'Hi Steve and Debbie!
We had an absolutely wonderful week. The villa was beautiful and spacious, pool was amazing and exactly what we were after! Chris has been a fantastic help, given us some brilliant recommendaions for restaurants, trips and arranged for us to participate in the ceremony at the temple on the mountain which we will never forget!
Alex and Komeng were wonderful too, we went fishing with Alex and his brother, had a few massages from Komeng and even Alex's Dad! and they took us to the ceremony - felt very honoured.
We have the bug for Bali now and would love to visit Candidasa again! I'm sure if we do we will be in touch again to see if your little piece of paradise is available.
Thank you again.
Bec and Marc.'

We were picked up in Kuta by a fabulous driver who had no problem stopping at different places along the way (he was organised for us with the villa and was a great price too ) He took us to the beautiful villa where we stayed for nearly a week .
The locals were so helpful and nothing was to difficult.
White sand is just beautiful alex,s brother took us out there on a boat and we snorkeled and had a lovely day .
All the local restaurants are really lovely and all very good and fresh food.
We all had a massage everyday for under $10 very luxurious, and would come home to our villa and just laze in the pool .
I am saving for my next trip and cant wait , i wll definitely be staying here again .

After some very busy days in Kuta, coming to Candidasa was the perfect way to relax and unwind. The staff who collected us from Kuta were friendly and willing to accomodate our every wish. On arrival at the Villa we recieved a friendly welcome and an orientation to the unit and all of its features. The unit was clean and fresh flowers added that little extra friendly touch. The villa is well located, accross the road from the beach, a short walk to shops and restaurants. The gardens around the villa provided interest, beauty and privacy. The pool was clean, cool and beautiful to lazy around and completely private.
I loved the style of the villa, and coupled with it's location, I felt like I was in the heart of a balanise village... far away from the noisy hussle and bussle of Kuta. Having the bedrooms located upstairs and the main living area below allowed for very restful sleep ins or early morning coffee addicts, depending on your preferance.
The local families who manage the villa are extremely accomodating and very friendly, the arranged boat rides, car trips, laundry service and even invited us to have breakfast with them! The villa also has a full time security guard, which while safety is not an issue, gives you a great deal of peace of mind. I really loved the villa and I cant wait to go back again!

I loved when i arrived alex was there to help with my bags and make sure we were happy with everything. He was more than happy to show us around the villa and the town.
The villa was just lovely and really nice to come back to after a day in the sun, the pool shaped like a turtle was bliss. I loved the furnishings and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Alex's brother was great to he took us all out on his boat to go snorkelling and a day spent at white sand beach finished it of perfectly .
I loved everything about Candidasa and cannot wait to go back.
I will definitely be staying at the villa again, I wish I had stayed longer :(
Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday Debbie and Steve
Private, family villa in walking distance of Candidasa

The Villa is one of 4 but the only one rented out in the block. It is a comfortable villa with lovely garden and surrounds. The King Size bed was perfect and the two day beds great for our kids (10 & 8). The turtle pool was a great oasis with a useful outdoor shower.
By far the best part of staying here was being introduced to Domo who organised our transport and had us to his house for breakfast for 3 days. Charming man and only too happy to please. Also, wonderful was having alex on staff who, with his family, looked after us and our needs during our stay.
Our driver Ray (through Domo) was a wonderful driver and guide. Make sure you visit Tenganan, TG Water Palace and White Sand Beach. Our trip to Ubud was ok but very busy on the roads - go early and enjoy the Monkey Forest and the many shops.
We went snorkelling at Blue Lagoon and fishing (ask alex) and left from the Bali Shangri-La Beach Club which is down the road just in front of the Villa. We were able to use their pool and facilities for free whilst enjoying something to eat there. The snorkelling was a little rough on our day but the kids loved it just the same. We caught 10 small fish between us and our boatman cooked them up for us for lunch back at our Villa.
An affordable option for a small family and close enough to enjoy the shops and services Candidasa has to offer.

The villa is in a poor state of maintenance, with so many things not working or not properly.
When we arrived there was no electricity.
The hot water unit at the sink produces hot water, but not hot enough for tea or coffee, and there is no kettle.
The satellite tv doesn't work, I suggest not paid or similar. Can't translate the on screen messages.
Dvd library lucky to find a few that actually work
Bathroom door downstairs doesn't shut most of the time, privacy is an issue.
Downstairs windows don't open, for fear of breaking them.
Update the floor tiles are all loose.
I could go on.
But the worst is the rat that wants to visit every night, he comes in under the door, and needs to be chased out, but he's persistent, we will not be sleeping in a villa that with a rat
So sorry you didnt like Candidasa and chose to move on.

Had a lovely stay in Villa Tenganan, of which the locals know this property as Kura Kura, (sorry if wrong Spelling).
The Grounds and gardens and pool are lovely and the beach is only across the road via the Shangrala Hotel.
Chris, Alex and family were great and very helpful. Had some lovely Breakfasts down the road at Domo's home along with some cooking lessions. He organise a car and driver for a fair price and provides good service.
Villa is well pointed, however the upstairs is too well ventilated to allow airconditioner to work effectively and allows noise in.
Walking distance to the main road in Candi Dasa, with restaurants and shops, alot quieter than Kuta if you want to relax and chill.

We loved our stay here. From the very friendly locals to the wonderful peace and tranquility of the villa. All our needs and expectations were met. Chris and alex were invaluable to making sure we had such a great time. The Villa itself was very comfortable with a lovely ambience and great with a small kitchen. The location was perfect, away from the main street but close to everything. Great eating places close by - Vincents, Warung astawa for Indonesian Duck, Mr Grumpy's for great morning Nasi Goreng and Bubur ayam. This was the best trip we have had to Bali - in over 10 trips. The serene and calm at Villa Tenganan was so relaxing for our 5 night stay (wish it were longer). A tip for those thinking of travelling there - it's well worth the effort and Villa Tenganan is located at Kura Kura Villas which is very private, a little hard to find, opposite Shangrila - that's the only reason I marked down the 'Ease of check in'. This didn't affect our stay which was made all the more better due to the privacy.

The villa and surrounding resplendent gardens were always spotless, which was very refreshing after traveling through Bali for two weeks prior and staying in some less-than-sanitary places.
We had a delicious Balinese style grilled fish dinner cooked for us one night by one of the locals for a very reasonable price.
Candidasa, in my opinion, has a perfect balance of everything Bali has to offer. It is just rural enough so you're not listening to loud motorbikes everywhere you go, yet it's just busy enough to provide all the activities and tours you could possibly imagine.
We being a couple in our mid-twenties, were nervous that the town would be a bit boring for us. But we managed to find some fun bars at night, go surfing a few times with one of the locals, and go on a long tour of various temples and palaces in the area.
The villa is situated around lots of different beach resorts, which are great to make use of their restaurants, beach chairs, etc.
The pool here is beautiful and we had it all to ourselves during our entire two week stay.
Our only complaint would be that there was construction going on a few doors down, which was at times loud and seemingly never-ending!
Other than that, we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

This was our third time staying at Villa Tenganan. We will be staying there again in February 2014. The sheer beauty of the villa and its surrounds beats anywhere we have stayed before. The staff continue to be at their absolute best and nothing is too much trouble. The grounds are well maintained and the pool is both unique and tranquil, being in the shape of a turtle with a little waterfall coming from a rocky wall. So close to everything you need and not a care in the world. The locals are very welcoming and there is not the hustle and bustle of Kuta. If you want to do nothing this is the place to do it.

Cute little house in a lovely garden - the pool is one of the best you will see - rock wall with hanging ferns, black volcanic edging, all in the shape of a turtle. The locals help out with snorkelling tours (from Wayan the caretaker) and driving - we had a wonderful breakfast with Domo our driver down the road. All adds to a village feel. It's a house rather than a hotel, so not lxurious, but good fun.

We really loved the traditional architecture of the villa with its lovely wooden construction and beautiful tiled roof, it really felt like you were living the Balinese lifestyle of old. The gorgeous mature garden offered a nice private enclave to enjoy the pool and watch the wildlife. Everyone who frequented the complex to perform ceremony or help with the villa itself - particularly the fantastic cleaner who did a brilliant job tidying after us - were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for a stroll into the main strip for dinner and away from the busier main road whilst having lovely local restaurants close by. For a couple the villa is large and spacious and the upstairs
area was breezy and cool with a nice private terrace to enjoy a drink and watch the world go by.
Pleasant villa, welcoming staff within walking distance to every

Such a beautiful, welcoming villa that was more that comfortable and super convenient! Chris, Alex and Putu (management & staff) are incredible and all worth their weight in gold!! Chris has so much local knowledge and is more than happy to provide tips on places to visit or he will even spend the day with you touring local villages and attending traditional ceremonies, an absolute legend!! Alex is also happy to take you out on the water in a traditional Bali fishing boat where you can spend the day snorkelling, fishing and visiting local trasures such as white sand beach. Putu was adorable and kept me company while watching scary movies alone at night and accompanied me to breakfast while showing me around town. True, sincere, gentlemen.
The villas amenities were extremely comfortable and the little touches of home (for us aussies) like the Vegemite in the fridge was such a nice touch! There are many Wurungs (restaurants) within walking distance and a local mart where you can buy drinks and nibblies directly across the road. I will definitely be back for another visit!! Thanks again for your hospitality and kind loan of your little piece of paradise... It is truely magical :D

During our adventure through various places in and around Bali, we made sure to stay at Candi dasa for a week of serious relaxation. With this is mind I searched the net for suitable accommodation that wasn't overly expensive. From the description and photos posted on Flip Key, Villa Tenganan (despite its lack of reviews as compared to other places in the area) ticked all the right boxes and did not disappoint!
The gardens were beautiful.
The pool was clean and clear of any leaves etc.
The villa was bigger than I expected, with a huge living area downstairs.
The bathroom was spotless and also quite big, even enough room for a small garden!
The bed was massive and very comfy (a real deal breaker/maker for me due to lower back issues).
The staff were always very helpful/friendly; offering info about Candi, setting up activities or just for a chat.
Thanks guys, we shall be seeing you again very soon!

My title says it all. A magnificent villa and surrounds. Upon arrival the staff made us feel right and home and throughout the holiday went out of their way to make the stay that little bit more pleasurable. The amenities in the villa were first class, including the bathroom with the garden. The sleeping area was large and , as with the whole villa, very airy. The pool was unique in the shape of a turtle! Everything you required was within a couple of minutes walk from the villa. From the many restaurants, shopping, beaches, to hotels for a leisurely meal and a few drinks. I will definitely be back.
