The Watergarden

The Watergarden is within 15 minutes of the ancient Aga village of Tenganan, where life precedes the centuries old Hindu traditions a time capsule. Less than 30 minutes away are the royal water palaces of the former Rajahs and within an hour is the mother temple of Bali (Besakih) nestled at the cloud-shrouded foot of the island’s tallest and most revered mountain, Agung.

Eastern Bali covers the regency of Karangasam, one of the last realms of the kings. Candi Dasa, home to The Watergarden, is the romantic kingdom’s holiday capital, embracing the “real’ Bali. Discover one of Bali’s best kept secrets – the unique Watergarden hotel. Follow narrow brick paths meandering through lush tropical gardens, over small streams, past waterfalls and lily ponds, to find your private bungalow nestled amongst the verdant growth.

Enjoy peace and serenity in the sleepy seaside village of Candi Dasa. From here one has easy access to East Bali’s spectacular unspoiled beauty. A short distance from the hotel one encounters dramatic views of Mt Agung, Bali’s sacred mountain; lush green rice terraces clinging to steep and sweeping valleys; traditional villages following age-old customs; colourful rituals and ceremonies; and crystal-clear seas rich in coral and marine life. Here there is a timeless quality as ancient cultures and traditions remain unchanged – an essential element of daily life.

Voted the most romantic boutique hotel and spa in eastern Bali and among the top five on the island, The Watergarden is a secluded/secret hideaway of thatched cottages where romance flourishes within lush tropical gardens linked by waterfalls and private lotus ponds. Traditional thatched cottages adorned by carving in true Balinese style luxury, feature their own overwater romantic terraces, perched above the clear,  freshwater koi streams meandering within luxuriant tropical gardens. Modern amenities coupled with exotic charm.

Discover the pre-Hindu weaving village of Tenganan and watch the textile-weavers create the magic cloth, “geringsing”; scuba-dive or snorkel in the abundant ocean – or skim across it in a glass-bottom boat, enjoying a fishing expedition. Explore the rich and diverse hinterland by bicycle, enjoy an easy trek or tackle the summit of the sacred mountain Agung.

Whether you come to be married in the cool tropical gardens; to spend your honeymoon in our unique and romantic environment, or just to experience total relaxation and to be pampered, our staff’s natural warmth and friendliness will make it hard to leave.
