Candidasa Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 villas (villa Joglo-2+bdr, 5 adults + kids; villa YB 2 brd-4 adults+ kids)

Our resort Citakara Sari has two villas named 'Joglo' and 'Yoga Bale', which can be rented together or separately. Our pool is 18X7m, plus spa, tennis court and great grounds (6200m2)with 110 palm tees. Villa Joglo is a combination of an antique teak house from Java with contemporary architectural elements. The elegant open design plan where we can enjoy the antique carving of the walls, and the conveniences of a contemporary home well suited to our beachfront location. Villa Joglo comprising 557 m2 roofed space including attached spa area. The second villa, called Villa Yoga Bale with 2 bedrooms has a total living area of 225m2. It's living area designed so it can serve as a small performance space and yoga pavilion. Yoga Bale architecture weds elements of the traditional and the modern, combining Javanese woodwork and Balinese thatching with western amenities to create a comfortable, natural flow. Swimming and snorkeling is off our private beach, boats are waiting to be used.

About Citakara Sari: Citakara Sari is translated as “The Essence of Arts.” The richness of Balinese arts is what drew us to this unique land in the first place. Here, artists, musicians, dancers, and creative people of all sorts are held in highest regard, and in most instances entire communities will take part in performances, as musicians in the Gamelan orchestra, as actors, dancers, singers, puppeteers, or even in combinations of several different capacities. Every aspect of Balinese culture, from government functions to religious ceremonies, is a creative endeavor. This vibrant and lively approach to life has informed the concept and design of Citakara Sari Villa.

Citakara Sari Villa was designed to wed elements of the traditional and the modern, combining Javanese woodwork and Balinese thatching with western amenities create a comfortable, natural flow. And behind it all, the ocean, framed by one of the only white-sand beaches to be found in Candi Dasa.

Villa Joglo: Years of searching, conversing, and building, resulted in what we call Villa Joglo. Specifications: Total area – 557m2 Living/kitchen/dining/entertainment area-- 110m2, first floor. Wrap around granite porch—150m2, first floor, 110m2—second floor. Spa/sauna area—90m2, first floor. Bedroom 1, second floor--35m2 with attached bathroom with large custom-made terrazzo bathtub and marble sinks, queen size Madura bed, armoire, writing table, and chairs. Bedroom 2, second floor—35m2 with attached bathroom with large custom-made terrazzo bathtub and natural stone sink, queen size bed, armoire, vanity, writing table, and chairs. Center area, second floor--35m2 with 2.5mX2.5m glass opening in the floor, antique double bed, mirror, table, and spectacular “Raja’s house” light fixture. The Villa Joglo’s large kitchen/dining/living/entertainment/office area is tastefully appointed with antique furniture pieces and contemporary design elements that divide the large open space into different 'zones'.

This villa can comfortably accommodates 4 adults with children.

Villa Yoga Bale: Our original intention was to designate the Yoga Bale for yoga sessions. Truly, the soothing warmth of the polished granite floor invites you to stretch. Now the grandiose (80m2 with over 7m high ceiling) semi-open living space is a multifunctional area for dining, relaxing, playing games, watching the waterfall built out of rough marble, hosting a small performance , and , of course, yoga. Antique Javanese gebyok walls are united with large panes of glass to create a traditional/contemporary blend in a fully air conditioned downstairs bedroom. The bedroom is large enough to hold a king size bed and a double bed (both antique from the island of Madura), a writing table, chairs, and armoire for clothes. Attached to the bedroom is a semi-open 30m2 bathroom with a room enough for two hand made terrazzo bathtub. Flowers and green trees growing in the bathroom make you feel like you are outside. The upstairs bedroom (36m2) with vaulted alang-alang ceiling has the best view of the ocean.

4 adults plus children can reside at the villa with comfort.

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

Two villas share the grounds, sleeping up to 9 adults plus kids. Joglo is the larger villa and was built using antique carved wooden walls and ceiling from a traditional Javanese house. Intricate carved wood delights the eye at every turn and is combined with wide glass doors on two sides to create an interior that is at once rooted in island 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 three bedrooms are divided by sliding wood and glass panelling doors, curtained at night, so that each room can enjoy the ceiling. This makes for a slight lack of privacy – no problem if one family is sharing, as we were, but perhaps not ideal for two couples. Our kids loved the high carved four posters, almost like rooms within rooms. 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 with plants and greenery.

Beautiful carved wooden beds, soft linen sheets and well chosen pillows make for comfort in both villas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello, Yuri. I just wanted to let you know that we had a terrific stay at your villa, and want to once again thank Ayu, Made and the other staff for their great help, and to you for outstanding organization. We are already tentatively planning for our next visit in the spring or early summer (which is much easier for us to do now since we are based in Bangkok). We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Most relaxing holiday ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We took both villas....both were divine and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We even organised a dinner party with a suckling pig and had friends come over...there was nothing to do from setting the table to cleaning up. The most relaxing holiday in a beautiful villa with lovely pool and discrete helpful staff. Staying here was the highlight of the really don't need to venture beyond the gates!!! Although we had to since we were attending a conference at a hotel near by....Citi Kara Sari was the much better venue.

Having a driver at your disposal really helped since local knowledge is a must and the drivers we saw on the road caused lots of amusement for their lack of concern for themselves.

Would recommend it to those with family group or large party of friends. Sleeps 8 couples perfectly. A truly relaxing holiday thanks to the great staff.

Jewel in Candidasa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this wonderful property in July 2013.

Hospitality started as soon as we landed in the airport with prompt arrival of our drivers.

The property is situated on the east coast of Bali and so with the traffic of morning rush hour, the commute is about 1.5 hours.

However when you arrive, you are immediately met by a group of friendly staff waiting to take your bags and cool tropical drinks in hand!

The property is more majestic than the pictures would suggest.

You even have your own stretch of private beach!

Bedrooms are spacious and air conditioned.

The villa was immaculate with beautiful antiques and artwork reflective of the owners' excellent taste.

The menu for the villa itself is simple and this may be reflective of the fact that there are several local restaurants who will deliver.

However we were a large group with small children and so arranged with Ayu to have dinner at home . Ayu is a fantastic cook who easily could outrun any of the local restaurants!

Made also is an excellent and safe driver who showed us the sights!

If you have the opportunity, ask for the Kecak dance performance , you'll not regret it !

The highlight though was meeting the owners themselves who are warm and charming people !

Thank you Ayu, Made and all the wonderful staff at Citakara Sari!

Best wishes Lynn and Iouri ! We hope to meet with you again in the future, either back in Bali or on our side of the world :))

Wonderful vacation at Villa Sitakara, Bali

  • 5 of 5

That vacation was a dream of my life. The Villa itself was a piece of art, the garden was nice and shady, the nice and cosy beach pleased us every time we went for a swimming, and all this beautiful environment was adorned with warmest welcome and best hospitality ever, provided by the owner himself and by his team. My compliments to all of them. Our family can't wait to return to Bali!

Gorgeous Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two teenage children, and I stayed in Villa Joglo for three nights. The time was too short. There are two gorgeous homes in a palm grove on the ocean with a private beach, pool, tennis court, and an attentive staff. It is as far from Kuta's nightlife as it is close to traditional Bali. There is no restaurant on the premises, but it is within walking distance of a "real" Balinese village and several small cafés. The staff prepares breakfast and will prepare lunch and dinner with advance notice. We were not into planning ahead and ordered lunch and dinner off of the collection of menus from nearby restaurants that will deliver. The staff was nowhere to be seen – – until you want something. Drinks by the pool, a masseuse, a tennis partner, a car to Ubud, can all be easily arranged. If tranquility in a stunningly beautiful setting is the goal, it would be difficult to find anything nicer than this beautiful property.

Paradise at Bali's east coast

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed every minute during the eight nights stay at Citakara Sari Estate near Candi Dasa in February this year.

Everything was as described on the website. The property is situated in a quiet and secluded location on Bali's east cost with beautiful ocean views. The two airy and spacious villas on the estate are comfortable, tastefully decorated and kept very clean and tidy. With no mosquitoes around we left our balcony doors open at night to enjoy the ocean breeze. The lush garden is perfectly manicured and we felt like being in paradise.

Our daughters aged 13, 18 and 21 enjoyed their daily matches on the fantastic tennis court, my husband explored the reef snorkeling from the small private beach and went fishing by boat in the strait. I recharged by exercising in the large well maintained pool, having fantastic body massages in the spa area, relaxing on the comfortable sun lounges and watching the colorful sunsets.

The girls were happy to have free internet access and they made plenty of use of the property's DVD collection. I found a couple of very interesting books in the house about Balinese culture and customs.

With recommendations regarding sight seeing from the staff we went on several day trips exploring different parts of Bali in the estate's comfortable car and felt very safe with our friendly and experienced driver. Candi Dasa is a 10 minutes drive away and we got complimentary lifts to shop or visit restaurants. When we preferred to eat in we ordered take away or asked the staff to prepare a meal.

With our own small safe in the villa for our valuables and a night guard on the grounds we never had to worry about safety issues and felt very secure living on the estate.

The service by the staff of six was perfect. They did everything to make us feel at home and always had a friendly smile on their faces. Even before we arrived the American owner of the property responded to all our queries in detail and it was a pleasure doing business with him.

We recommend this wonderful place to anybody who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday in luxurious surroundings. Our family would love to stay at Citakara Sari again in the future.

Thank you, Iouri, for creating this beautiful place and sharing it with us.

Magical and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

After escaping Ubud, 5 lbs heavier (they do have great food there) and our wallets in tack, we found Bali within the serenity of the Citakara Estate. We stayed in the Villa Yoga Bale, slowed down and took in the magic. The house is beautiful in it's simplicity. My husband and I stayed in the upstairs bedroom with a view of the sea, and our teenage kids shared the downstairs bedroom with the TV. I hope to go back again, and the sooner the better. The staff is exceptional, and took care of all of our needs. We ate breakfast in, and went exploring by afternoon and night. There are two houses on this estate and they are both works of art. There is enough distance for privacy, yet close enough to mingle if you are fortunate and have nice people next door.

If you want to slow down, this is the place for you. We had to force ourselves to go sightseeing because we never wanted to leave the grounds.
