Our dive centre diving CANDIDASA is conveniently located right in the heart of the resort, close to both main pools and in the middle of the two restaurants. Built on a terrace extending into the sea, divers have easy access to the two sandy beaches on either side of the platform.


Right from the start the Candi Beach Resort & Spa pursuits a sustainability concept. It uses water out of its own well. This water is recycled afterwards, by clearing and filtering it in the resort’s private clarification plant, before it is used for watering the gardens.

The management strives to involve the local communities (Balinese: “Banjar”), thus most of the resort’s employees live within minutes of the resort’s premises and also the daily supplies are purchased directly from local producers wherever possible.

Pioneering in Candidasa, the Candi Beach Resort and Spa was the first resort in Candidasa to initiate and support the building of artificial reefs along the coast.

Being awarded the TRAVELIFE Silver Award in 2012 already, the resort was honoured with the TRAVELIFE Gold Award in 2014 for sustainable management in tourism.
In regards of the resort’s efforts towards the local communities and its environmental approach, it was also certified by Tri Hita Karana (THK), the Balinese concept of “a balanced life”.


Whether you are aiming to enjoy a restful holiday at the infinity-pool or the sandy beach or prefer a relaxing traditional Balinese massage at the new Spa, play badminton or go snorkeling – the Candi Beach Resort & Spa caters for your needs. In addition to that, the chef takes great pride in spoiling his guests with daily changing à la carte delights, be it in the Hibiscus restaurant or in the Biru restaurant.

And of course Bali itself offers countless options to spend your leisure time: Bird-watching and hiking, rafting and visiting temples that have been erected centuries ago are just a small range of things. The spiritual and cultural centre of Bali, Ubud, is certainly worth a visit, and so are the pristine beaches and the picturesque rice terraces or the steep cliffs of the south coast. Yoga, batik- and cooking-classes have also become increasingly popular among tourists and locals. The friendly staff at the Activities-Counter in the resort’s lobby is happy to assist you in organizing your perfect holidays.


Both the Candi Beach Resort and diving CANDIDASA are located in the village Sengkidu. Here you will find some restaurants and warungs, offering delicious and reasonably priced food as well a shops selling all basic necessities. There are also accommodation alternatives, ranging from low-cost beach-bungalows to private villas. Please send us an email in case you would like more information.
