3 Days @ the Rishi

Posted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: The friendly staff
Cons: The rundown conditon, especially the "beachfront" & pool area.
Location: Very quite, so look elsewhere if you're in Bali to party. 1.5hrs & 400000 IRP in a taxi from airport.
Not quite what the pictures suggested, but if you're looking for a quite vacation or a base for day trips in East Bali this is cheap accommodation with a friendly atmosphere. It's important to remember that Candidassa's beach has been erroded & the "Beach" in "Beach Hotel" no longer exists. My room did not have the aircon or TV advertised, but I did not need those & other rooms did have, so if I had asked to change rooms, it would not be an issue. There was also no hot water (in my room anyway), so families should think twice or enquire before booking. The people & locaton sell this hotel for me & I'd not hesitate to stay again when next in Candidassa, but if you're looking for a bit of luxury, this is not for you.

Gorgeous old hotel in need of major upgrade.

Posted Jul 22, 2013
Pros: quiet ( apart from sound of waves)
Cons: sea wall has fallen onto the beach so beach unusable. Also pool bar and poolside restaurant not open while we were there.
Location: great
Probably not worth the price we paid but great location and lovely helpful staff. At least half of the hotel appears closed and in need of repairs. Our room was large and ok, but the floor never felt really clean. Bedding was clean and comfortable. The room had a old rusty fridge which needed to be unplugged to plug in the kettle! The pool which is open ( there is a smaller pool not currently being used) is superb and has an amazing view. My sons and I had the pool to ourselves most days. If it is luxury you are after then this place is not for you, if you just want somewhere to crash and relax and you aren't too fussy then you may really enjoy it. Ask for Room 125 which has an amazing view ( unless the sound of the waves bothers you- waves were really loud and we were a few villas back from there).

Rishi Candidasa.

Posted Jun 26, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff & cleanliness.
Cons: Our booked room had nothing in working order. We were changed to a room that was 100%.
Location: Awesome location. Close to all the things we had in mind & wanted to see.
Loved it. My wife & I were not expecting much & so it was. The whole nation is lacking in maintenance & The Rishi is no exception. Bed down there, enjoy the vibe & the people. If you're easy going you'll love it. If you're a whinger - stay home.

Pros: Sound of waves
Cons: Maintenance
Location: 2 hours drive from Kuta
The hotel is poorly maintained. Examples: Water was dripping not only from one toilet; The pathway carries too much water when it has rained; Beds are soft; Furnitures are not polished. Advise you to bring your own bathroom ammenities. The staff are courteous and the room is clean. If you like to hear the sound of waves, this is an appropriate place as the rooms are next to the shoreline.

Needs renovation, should not be operational.

Old old old. One pool was empty, no barriers. Sea retaining wall has collapsed. Rooms in poor conditions. We booked 3 nights but left next morning.
