Hotel Alam Asmara Dive Resort Hotel 3 star

Candidasa Street Candi Dasa, Indonesia
Amy Adejokun Section editor

A pocket-sized hotel in Candi Dasa! This establishment (which we wouldn't call a resort as such), once entirely devoted to diving, recently changed tack and now provides a setting created exclusively with couples in mind. On the whole, the facilities are very modest: the accommodation is decent and while there is direct access to the sea from the hotel, it's a shame there is no beach.

    Location 7.4 /10

    Located in Candi Dasa, it's a quiet resort that is the exact opposite of the over-exploited resorts like those in Kuta. Situated on the coast in the east of Bali, we'd describe Candi Dasa as a peaceful large village. If you can't imagine a holiday without having an abundance of restaurants, bars and clubs to choose from, then we recommend you look elsewhere as this may not be the place for you. Nevertheless, it is possible to do some diving on this side of the island and excursions to visit the wrecks and the neighbouring islands are organised by a number of centres found on the waterfront. It takes around an hour and fifteen minutes to reach Ubud by car, and between an hour and a half to two hours to reach Denpasar International Airport.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has 12 guest rooms that are located on either side of a flower-lined pathway. The numerous decorative sculptures built into the exterior walls are a clear reference to the pleasures of the flesh, creating an atmosphere that is echoed in the rooms. In addition to being stylish, their clever layout somewhat makes up for their modest size. They are equipped with a decent range of amenities (a large flat-screen or CRT television, a fully-stocked minibar, tea and coffee-making facilities and free Wi-Fi) and all have a four-poster bed. Bordered by vegetation, the bathrooms are open to the outside. Unfortunately, as a whole the rooms are lacking in natural light.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Opened in 2007, this very modestly sized hotel composed of just twelve guest rooms now strives to attract young couples rather than diving enthusiasts, as it once did. The diving centre has closed but all of the equipment is still here. With regard to the main part of the hotel, special mention goes to the pretty little reception area at the entrance, the traditionally Balinese decor, and the central, flower-lined pathway leading to the guest rooms located on either side of it. At the end of this pathway is the swimming pool (which is not very big) where there are a number of deckchairs layed out in the shade of the frangipani trees. The hotel provides direct access to the sea but unfortunately does not have a beach, so guests will have to make do with the hotel's terrace that looks out over the clear water. If you go for a swim, watch out for the rocks and the light current. The staff at the hotel are young and friendly. The hotel also has an area for relaxation and well-being where guests can enjoy treatments like massages and reflexology.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel's restaurant, which also serves as its bar, is located right on the seafront. How lovely! The menu is composed of a number of very classic Indonesian dishes (nasi goreng, mie goreng, etc.). The restaurant itself is very pleasant and is entirely open to the outside, affording a beautiful view of the sea. There is a large table set at one end of the room that is used for the cooking classes.

    To know

    The hotel organises cooking classes, although these are not included in the room rate.

      A hotel that stands practically in the water in the resort of Candi Dasa, in the east of Bali, and far from the busy, over-populated districts of Kuta and Seminyak. Offering high-quality facilities without being extravagant, this trendy hotel promotes a tranquil atmosphere on its very pleasant, wooded site that caters exclusively to couples. It's a shame, though, that there's no sandy beach here, meaning guests have to make do with a strip of pebbles.
