About CKS management
We are very interested in Balinese arts and culture. For more than 20 years we were coming to Bali to work, enjoy the weather and get inspired. Finally, by 2010 we settled in Bali and build the compound of 3 villas. Yet not retired to live in Bali most of the time, we are trying to spend as much time as possible here. We are enjoying meeting new people and eager to share our knowledge and contacts in arts and theatre. We are yoga enthusiasts, play a lot of recreational tennis, dive.
CKS management purchased this Villa in 2010
Why CKS management chose Candidasa
It is a great alternative to Bali's overcrowded South. Incredible nature, mountains surroundings, safe ocean, great for boat activities, snorkeling and sailing. New highway makes our place very accessible, it takes only 50 min to get to Sanur these days. Plus, we like it quiet. Like many creative people we need the sound of the wave and the wind to concentrate on our work. Our villas are built in Traditional Indonesian style with contemporary twists at the palm fringed beach overlooking coral reefed lagoon outside the town of Candidasa. You will love an oasis of calm and comfort decorated with cleverly chosen local antiques, artwork and crafts you’ll want to take home with you. All meals can be catered at the villa or you can eat out in a wide variety of local restaurants, but with kids in tow it’s a good idea to stock up on snacks and favorite foods for light lunches. Groceries can be ordered in for you, or have the driver take you to a supermarket in one of the larger towns at the beginning of your stay to stock up on necessities. There is a German baker in the local town for fresh bread and rolls. Wonderful massages can be booked in the spa courtyard, private yoga sessions or tennis lessons can be arranged on request.
What makes this Villa unique
Three villas share large (6200m2) oceanfront property with 100 coconut trees. Villa Joglo and villa Saraswati larger rental villas are built using antique carved wooden walls and ceilings from a traditional Javanese homes. Intricate carved wood delights the eye at every turn and is combined with wide glass doors all over villas' sides to create an interior that is at once rooted in tradition and modern and light filled. Beautifully decorated with a mixture of contemporary artworks and quirky traditional craft, every piece of furniture is individual, carefully chosen and comfortable as well as beautiful. Floors are smooth local stone tiles, tactile and pleasing to bare feet – there is no reason to wear shoes at all at the villa, inside or out as the grass lawns are soft as deep pile carpet. Upstairs in Villa Joglo the stunning carved ceiling is the architectural focus. The two bedrooms are divided by the wooden panels and glass doors, and the central sitting area curtained at night. Central area can become an additional bedroom. There are two beautifully fitted bathrooms with soft fluffy towels, huge granite tubs and stone sinks. All three rooms open onto a wide wrap-around balcony with an upstairs sitting area and stunning views through the palms to the sea and the island of Nusa Penida. Balinese thatched villa Yoga Bale has two large bedrooms and its own spacious open living room with soaring thatch ceiling. It is designed for island living with two sides open to the garden, closed in only by rattan blinds when windy and at night. The downstairs family bedroom with two large carved wood beds and plenty of space for a cot is the room. The two bathrooms are open air, like small private courtyards. Beautiful carved wooden beds, soft linen sheets and well-chosen pillows make for comfort all our villas.

Attention to detail in every way-a truly wonderful visit
Excellent private location, this luxury estate is meticulously groomed and landscaped, offering superb accommodations for a large group with ample opportunity for privacy and comfort. Architecturally stunning buildings accompanied by artistic and historic interior design. Hand crafted Balinese wall and ceiling panels are jaw dropping in their beauty and, with the ancient and modern art throughout the compound, there is an overriding sense of calmness and serenity. Spectacular baths as well as a private spa are welcome amenities. Private beach with protective breakwater allows for excellent clear water snorkeling and swimming. The large infinity pool overlooking the beach provides ample room for swimming laps or just for cooling off and enjoying the view. A well maintained tennis court along with rackets and balls really exceeded all expectations. The staff is professional, gracious, friendly and attentive. The chef has skills found at some of the finest restaurants on the island. He has perfected western, Balinese and Indonesian cuisine and is eager to share his passion for preparing truly memorable meals. The manager is always quick to respond to even the most unusual of requests and the entire staff is groomed to respect the privacy of the guests in the most sensitive manner. We have had the privilege to be guests at some of the finest hotels in the world and Citicara Sari is equal in quality to all yet with the added bonus of allowing one to be the only guests on the entire property. We look forward to our next stay at this wonderful estate.
Our stay was absolutely fabulous! We had a group of 8, from 5 to 70, and we all loved our stay. The pool had a shallow area for the kids, and we spent hours at the beach snorkeling and beach combing. The food that Putu prepared was delicious and Ayu and her staff were attentive, quick to respond to any request, and a true pleasure to be around. Thank you for an amazing vacation!
Beautiful property at a gorgeous location
Great experience. Perfect for a week long secluded stay without having to go anywhere; probably for a repeat visitor. Only problem, if at all- everything is too far
Dr. Eknath Deo
The only place to stay in Bali!
We have stayed here three times over the last three years and each time it delights and surprises us. The estate is beautiful! The staff is diligent, but unobtrusive and the accommodation tasteful, clean and comfortable. We rarely leave the compound- instead enjoying the world class snorkeling right in front of the villa. Lounging by the pool and enjoying the delicious food prepared to order by the chef. The owner is quick to respond and very accommodating. This is a wonderful vacation destination.
Paradise on earth!
I have nothing but great things to say. The property was just as displayed in the photos, better actually. Staff was friendly and attentive! We spent 11 days here and happily called it home!
Didn't want to leave but real life called and would welcome the opportunity to visit the villas and Bali again in the future ... until them we have great memories
Linda & Mackenzie

Citakara Sari estate
What an amazing place and wonderful team we've left part of our hearts in Bali.....
We booked all 3 villas so we could share this beautiful place with friends. The villas are all beautiful! The grounds truly stunning lying by the pool was just Bliss! The Reef fascinating lots of fish to see for those who snorkel. The team of staff so wonderful Ayu and team so lovely, friendly and helpful the kids talk of them still! This is definitely a non touristy part of Bali which is stunning much to see and do if your prepared to travel away from the Villa a little. The group enjoyed visits to Coffee plantations, rice fields, water temples, Volcano cycle ride and a Boat trip over to the Gili Islands all thoroughly recommended. This place was incredibly special and I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone thinking of staying were just looking for an excuse to return tho from the UK it's a Long Trip. We will be back tho Thankyou so much for sharing with us your wonderful Home. The Jackson, Cornwell & Boardman Families. UK
Our Estate is located right on the beach, has 6 bedrooms in three villas, sleeping 12 adults(of course, kids staying with their parents in the same bedrooms). There is tennis court, spa and sauna on site, fruit garden and more. We are in Candi Dasa, a quiet haven on the Bali's east coast, which is known as a quiet refuge for artists, writers, and discerning travelers, seeking a beautiful retreat away from larger westernized resorts. We have 7 service personnel attending to almost any guests' needs. We organize private shows involving the best artistic talent of Bali performed at he villas.
There are many wonderful restaurants in the area though our chef offers great menu and may entice you to dine in. We have great ocean views and the white-sand beach is at out boat ramp. Great diving is short boat ride away, snorkeling is right off the beach. Our compound of 3 villas is build on 6200m2 of land filled with grass, thousands of plants and flowers, 100 palm trees, pools and fish ponds. Our place is great for large families, reunions, weddings, celebrations.
