The hotel is set well off the main road. In one direction is the ocean, and in the other mountains. The feeling is peaceful and relaxed. We loved sitting outside the restaurant listening to the ocean. The staff were friendly, helpful and not at all intrusive. The room had a Balinese character and was clean. There was a shuttle bus to and from Candidasa central, about 3kms away. We would happily return as we really enjoyed Candidasa.

If you need to have the total package of a culinary experience, water sports, tours and resort life...this is your place. I enjoyed the stress free pampering of a well trained staff and nice facilities.

It was fantastic. At first the staff was attending and warm but we noticed a slip towards the end of our stay when the hotel got more crowded but no biggie..
The swinging beds by the ocean were amazing and my only struggle was leaving them as I did not want to at all.
clean swimming pool, and the food was fantastic albeit a bit pricy compared to the surrounding resturants.
Situated right on the beach, Bali Shangrila Beach Club is a perfect getaway destination. It is one of only a few resorts left in Candidasa that has its own white sand beach with a coral reef teaming with fish about 30 metres off shore that provides some of the best snorkelling in Bali. No need to go to Blue Lagoon or Amed. It's all right here and only a 5 minute walk into the main street. Candidasa has great restaurants. I highly recommend Vincent and La Rouge as well as the Crazy Kangaroo and a burger with Gary at No Nasi Goreng is a necessity. The best burger I've had outside Andrews in Melbourne. Candidasa also has a large expat population and they are all wonderful people.
As you arrive at the Watergarden Hotel in Candidasa, it is quite deceiving as the front reception is simple, and small. But what a wonderful treat - as we were lead to our rooms, up a very clean and tidy path through lush gardens, we were very pleased to see our room. Set in a very lush tropical setting, the room was lovely, nice and cool, and we had the joy of spending quite a lot of time relaxing on our verandah feeding out koi. It felt like that we were away from the world, so peaceful.
Staff were wonderful, especially the Orchid Day Spa, where I went every day for a massage and to be pampered and spoilt. Great place to unwind. The Manager there is lovely, and we could not find fault with anyone there, and the prices were excellent.
Staff were always happy and greeted you with a smile, and the meals in the restaurant were great, plenty of variety and staff were very happy to order off the menu as well. They were able to help us with booking a driver to see the sights of East Bali as well as book in a fishing trip in a traditional Balinese boat.
We visited in November in the low season, and had absolutely perfect weather the entire time. Now looking at when we can return.
We stayed in a villa on the top of the point that looks back to the port on one side and out over the bay towards Candidasa on the other. The port is a 24 hour port and some might find the distant noise at night a problem. I mentioned this to the staff and we were offered a villa on the Candidasa side, but as the sounds didn't bother us we stayed where we were.
They have an on demand bemo shuttle bus to take guests into town. When it's time to be picked up from the port village, you can call reception, or ask the restaurant you are in, to ring for you . We never waited more than a few minutes for the return lift.
The massages were good, ( I had a one hour foot massage) and there is a relaxing atmosphere throughout.

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days from 30th June 2015. The resort style hotel is located in a large parkland style location with a very attractive white sand beach. There was building work being carried out and one of the two pools was unavailable but this was no problem. The Balinese cottage style room was adequately spacious, clean and very comfortable with a lovely king size bed and a pleasant bathroom. The available infinity swimming pool and children's pools near the beach were great and there were plenty of sun loungers and towels. The restaurant served an included Asian/International style buffet breakfast , all day snacks and light meals and cocktails, and a generally Balinese/Indonesian oriented a la carte menu in the evening with a few standard International style dishes. Food and service was of a high standard and service was friendly and helpful. The hotel provided a regular shuttle to Candi Dasa for free (about 2km) and drivers were readily available if necessary for this journey (about 60,000IDR) for a ride to Candi Dasa and a pickup to return. The massage available from the hotel spa was of a good standard but obviously it came at premium prices being based in the hotel. All in all a very comfortable and enjoyable stay, friendly enthusiastic staff.

Never been to candi dasa and we will hope to return to bay shore villas yearly now! Exactly what we were after. 7 nights of bliss. Quiet, tranquil and close to shops and restaurants if you feel the need to even leave your bungalow by the pool or villa. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the owner Brad is on site and extremely friendly and most accomodating! He's done a fab job of the stunning getaway! Great for all sorts of travelllers, couples, families and solos! Lots to do near by and beautiful beaches near by to visit! Highly recommend!
A haven of quiet relaxation, the fishing village of Candi Dasa on Amuk Bay is the antitheses of frenetic Kuta to the southwest. With a rocky coastline, most swimming is confined to resort pools, although some of Bali’s best diving and snorkelling is found in this area. Candi Dasa is also a great base from which to explore the historical and cultural sights of the east, including the pre-Hindu village of Tenganan, the sacred baths of Tirtagangga, and Bali's mother temple, Pura Besakih.
