Candi Dasa, Bali
Discover one of Bali's best kept secrets: the unique Watergarden hotel. Follow narrow brick paths meandering through lush tropical gardens, over small streams, past waterfalls and lily ponds, to find your private bungalow nestled amongst the verdant growth.
Enjoy peace and serenity in the sleepy seaside village of Candi Dasa. From here one has easy access to East Bali's spectacular unspoiled beauty. A short distance from the hotel one encounters dramatic views of Mt Agung, Bali's sacred mountain; lush green rice terraces clinging to steep and sweeping valleys; traditional villages following age-old customs; colorful rituals and ceremonies; and crystal-clear seas rich in coral and marine life. Here there is a timeless quality as ancient cultures and traditions remain unchanged - an essential element of daily Balinese life.
Voted one of the most romantic boutique hotels in Bali, The Watergarden offers cool thatched cottages blending natural materials and Balinese craftsmanship to create an ambience that is simple but elegant. The murmur of flowing water and the splash of leaping Koi enhance the tranquility of the lily ponds and prize-winning gardens. Here comfort, beauty and tradition combine.
Discover the pre-Hindu weaving village of Tenganan and watch the textile-weavers create the magic "geringsing" cloth; scuba-dive or snorkel in the abundant ocean, or skim across it in a glass-bottom boat, enjoying a fishing expedition! Explore the rich and diverse hinterland by bicycle, enjoy an easy trek or tackle the summit of the sacred mountain Agung.
Whether you come to be married in the cool tropical gardens; to spend your honeymoon in our unique and romantic environment, or just to experience total relaxation and to be pampered, our staff's natural warmth and friendliness will make it hard to leave.
The Watergarden was designed, built and is operated by expats. The hotel restaurant, the Watergarden Kafe, is justly renowned for its diverse menu and fabulous frozen margaritas and features as the local meeting place every evening for Happy Hour.
