Fronting a wide seafront at the far western end of Candi Dasa, Lotus Bungalows offers classically styled, well-appointed air-con bungalows set in a grassy landscaped garden.

Sea-facing brick bungalows are well spaced, however each has two rooms abreast. Tastefully and elegantly styled, rooms have solid and comfortable wooden furniture and feature framed classic batiks and Chinese ceramics in blue and white tones. Pale blue painted walls, with darker blue curtains and cushions continue the blue theme. Beds are comfortable with fresh white linen.

Attached outdoor bathrooms have the shower completely outdoors, a delight in balmy weather, but could be positively miserable on a cold, rainy day — and the closeness of the neighbouring room’s bathroom doesn’t allow for much privacy.

Surrounding tropical landscaped gardens invite bird-watching opportunities. A large seaside infinity pool has a shallow kids section, however the pool is rather exposed and doesn’t offer much shade. Nonetheless, it’s flanked by two shady bales if it gets too hot. Beside the pool, a bizarre, large open boat-shaped pavilion, reminiscent of the steep pitched roofs of traditional Batak houses, shelters two rows of Chinese antique cabinets leading to one wooden couch facing the sea. A pleasant spot for reading or sun-gazing, but seems an excessive piece of architecture for one couch — odd, yet interesting. The restaurant also features a very unusual roof of intertwining large bamboo. If you are interested in unusual architecture, even if you’re not staying at Lotus Bungalows, it’s worth popping in for a look.

Breakfast is included and there’s free WiFi. It’s a little quieter down this end of Candi Dasa, and a bit more of a trek to the popular restaurant areas, but that aspect may suit some. Lotus Bungalows has an on-site PADI dive operation, so if you are planning on diving, it’s a good choice. We liked the comfortable and elegant style, though it may not be everyone’s cup of tea — and a little staid for some tastes. They offered excellent discounts for walk-in rates, making Lotus Bungalows a solid midrange pick.
