Desa Sanctuary, The Village - A sacred place to come home to....

                   FOR THE MORE ADVENTUROUS!

Why do we say that?   Candidasa is part of Bali that is off the beaten path and  less discovered.  Here you will be living with the Balinese in areas that are not so western styled as the Southern beaches...Seminyak, Canggu or Sanur or even Ubud, which is now very popular. We do not have the same environment as our Village, which is an enclosed private compound and cared for by staff at all hours.  At the beach, you will be renting a private home, amidst other expat and Balinese neighbors and it takes a certain kind of traveler to be " out there" on their own.  Are you this kind of traveler?

Our house has fabulous views and is steps away from the ocean. In Candidasa there is clear, clean water for snorkeling, diving, or doing nothing and watching the sunset.  

A hidden treasure, whose moment has come!

This area of the island is renowned for it's spectacular beauty, where the steep rise from coast to mountain creates magical scenery. Here the local people follow a traditional lifestyle, whether it is cultivating rice, farming, fishing,weaving baskets and the famous double ikat textiles or salt making.  You can easily visit Mount Agung, home to Bali's mother temple at Besakih, and the spectacular terraced hillsides

Nearby Padang Bai is a busy port where you can take the ferry to Lombok, Nusa Penida, Lembongan and onwards to the Gilli's, Komodo Islands and Flores.
