Sitting directly on the ocean a calming energy permeates Rumah Imbang that is immediately evident upon passing through the gates into the garden. The large (24are) properly is surrounded by 4-meter high walls fronted everywhere by Bougainvillea, with Frangipani and fruit trees pleasing the senses and a variety of palms completing the tropical oasis in this unspoiled corner of Bali away for the hustle and bustle of Seminyak & Kuta.
There are a total of 3 villas spread around the property.
The newly renovated Seaview villa has 2 rooms, luxuriously appointed each with private outdoor bathrooms and views over the pool to the sea from bed and the terrace. Price quoted is for one of the Seaview suite, with the other readily available for friends and/or family.
The Garden Villa is ideal for a young family with a double bed in one room and a pair of twin beds in the other, sharing an attractive common full bathroom.
The Master Suite is a well-appointed with inside/outside bathroom with private porch & water views. The Main living space has indoor dining and entertainment area – also with panoramic views of the sea. Thus the property is ideal for groups up to 8, 10. And up to 2 single beds can be added in the rooms to squeeze in a couple of more for $20/nite.
Organic produce is available from Bali-Direct upon request (at an additional cost).
The Main living area, kitchen & Bale are viewed of as “common" shared spaces where guest may mingle freely. If more private dining is desired guest may use the villa porches. Also shared is a swimming pool (note: not fenced so small children must be monitored at all time in the pool area), as is of course the beach area down private steps to perhaps the nicest sandy beach and swimming area on all of Candidasa Bay.
The host lives in the Master bedroom/office, when not travelling or home in the US. When not on promise guest questions or issues can be handled by our quality staff as they arise.

Candidasa is a small traditional fishing village with all the amenities one looks for on vacation. Among the many relaxing, beautiful, and interesting attractions nearby are: - Candidasa: village sports a number of good restaurants, bars with live music, several dive centers and various shopping options. Many restaurants will deliver (in 40min or so - often the choice by guests as once here it's where they enjoy most to be) or send a car/drive you back. - The Ashram: in the center of Candidasa hosts daily mediation and yoga classes - Pasar Putih: a picturesque little beach known as the virgin/white beach owing to its unique fine sand. Simple restaurants line the beach who provide chairs/umbrellas if you dine there. [Local fishing boats will take you there from just down our steps, as well as out fishing or over to the Blue Lagoon for more snorkeling - providing the equipment for both. - Padang Bai: scuba diving hub, and daily boats to The Gilis and Lombok - Ubud: famous spiritual center of Bali is under an hour by car or taxi - Tirtaganga: the King's water palace (open to the public for viewing and swimming) is 20minutes away. - Sidemen: one of the most picturesque terraced rice field views on the entire island - Jasri: good intermediate level surfing 20min up the coast A magical sunrise experience awaits earlier risers by walking just 5-minutes to the point where one gets a gorgeous panoramic view of the Bay. Actually beautiful all times of the day a small Hindu shrine sits there with the sea surrounding you as you look out to the islands off the coast.
Travelers will either need to have their own vehicles to get to Candidasa or a car service very familiar with the area can be arranged. The 1.5hr ride from the airport takes one along the coast and past Bali's most beautiful countryside. The property is within short walking distance of central Candidasa, while so very private and out-of-the-way.
