Puri Candi Kuning Resort at Bedugul

Rejuvenation of the Mind and Spirit in Bali's Mountain Lake District: Puri Candi Kuning Resort at Bedugul


(4/15/2013)

Bali’s Update's Editor recently escaped with a few friends for what must be the ultimate Island escape – two nights in the cool mountain-lake district of Bali on the shores of mystical Lake Beratan.

Originally built as a private estate on a 10-hectare plot, the recent conversion of the property into an elegant private hotel, offers a serene and elegant getaway from the balmy temperatures along Bali’s topical shore to the refreshingly crisp and cool climes of lakeside living at 1,500 meters above sea level.

Did we mention that the prices are attractive?  Think 5 star luxury at 3 and 4 star prices. Alas, this sitation is unlikely to last as the Resort grows its well-deserved reputation and an enthusiastic fan base.

Arriving at this lakeside retreat, we immediately notice the change in flora precipitated, quite literally, by the higher elevation. Verdant stands of pines and cedars, poinsettia, strawberry fields and hectare after hectare of flowers and garden produce thrive in the microclimate of Bali's Lake District.

We thrived in the cooler temperatures of Bali’s highland where nature provides the air-conditioning, fireplaces in the Resort's lounge warm against the evening's chill and mist-laden mornings seed inspiration as you sit with a steaming cup of coffee gazing at a mirror still lake.

And, indeed, we spent our time doing little more than enjoying the cool weather, but those more intent on touring will find plenty to do nearby by visiting ancient Hindu temples, picking strawberries, visiting the nearby botanical garden, paddling a native boat across the lake, visiting local markets or playing 18-holes of golf at the exquisite Bali Handara Golf Course.

With only six rooms of accommodation, the Puri Candi Kuning Resort sits lightly on a generous 10-hectare lot. Accommodation is spread across several villas. A main clubhouse overlooks a swimming pool and also serves as the Resort’s restaurant, karaoke lounge and library.

There’s also an excellent spa and separate small conference facility perfect for board meetings.

A highlight of our stay was the kind and attentive staff for whom no task to augment our comfortable stay was overlooked. The mere mention that we might need a table for a friendly game of dominoes brought a table and snacks, both magically appearing in our villa. Later, bemoaning we were unable to find tonic at the nearby Indomart, prompted cans to arrive semingly from no where for our evening gin-tonics. On our last day, an eager member of the team took us on a private tour of the Resort’s working gardens, resulting in freshly picked ingredients for a delicious salad. We even received well-informed recommendations on local restaurants - all done effortlessly and with a smile by the small, but very capable staff on duty at Puri Candi Kuning.

The rooms are large with abundant window space to take advantage of the natural light and warm colors generated by living on a picturesque forested lakeside. Designed by the leading Indonesia hotel design firm of Hadirprana, the accommodation spaces are well laid out with provision made for a separate work areas, ample seating for familial conversations or TV watching, and bedding imperially presented on raised platforms.

The bathrooms are extremely spacious, clean and modern -  with his and her wash basins, toilet and bidets, a Jacuzzi and spacious rain showers.

Complimentary WiFi connections ensure no one needs to be out of touch while staying at Puri Candi Kuning.
