Lots of fantastic restaurants and shops are literally minutes away along the main road of Candi.

The local traditional markets at Amlapurah are just a short drive away where you can barter for a fantastic bargain on just about anything.
While you are here you should visit the village that the Villa is named after i.e. Tenganan Village. It is approx 4km from Candidasa and is the best preserved Bali Aga (original Balinese) village, which is inhabited by descendants of its original villagers who still live according to their ancient traditions and ceremonies. In fact it is a living museum. When you walk between the houses it feels like being transferred into history. Many traditional old crafts, like geringsing (double ikat) woven cloth, egg shell painting and making lontar (drawings on bamboo slices) are still practiced.
All in all a stay at Villa Tenganan is a unique and charming experience.

We had an absolutely wonderful week. The Villa was beautiful and spacious, pool was amazing and exactly what we were after! Chris has been a fantastic help, given us some brilliant recommendations for restaurants, trips and arranged for us to participate in the ceremony at the temple on the mountain which we will never forget!
Alex and Komang were wonderful too, we went fishing with Alex and his brother, had a few massages from Komang, and even Alex's Dad! and they took us to the ceremony - felt very honoured.
We have the bug for Bali now and would love to visit Candidasa again! I'm sure if we do we will be in touch again to see if your little piece of paradise is available.
Thank you again,
Bec and Marc."
