Bali is undoubtedly one of the most famous islands in the world. The Island of the Gods is particularly well known because it reveals to its guests cultural, spiritual and natural wonders both on the surface and under water.
For people wishing to escape the tourist turmoil of the south of the island, Candidasa is a good option. The city is ideally located for divers desiring to explore some of the best dive sites in the area while being close to major tourist attractions.
The Lotus Bungalows is a beautiful resort offering twenty bungalows each with elegant furnishings, a Balinese-style open-air bathroom, air conditioning and a private veranda.
The restaurant serves local dishes and a delicious selection of Mediterranean dishes. With ocean views and an elegant bamboo architecture, there is no more picturesque place to dine in the surrounding area.
