Nestled in the corner of Candidasa Bay, Rumah Imbang Villas offer a tranquil home away from home for those looking to enjoy all the magic of culturally-rich East Bali. Our waterfront villas provide an exclusive sanctuary away from the busy tourist spots in the island’s southern tip, while still maintaining proximity to excellent dining and a variety of attractions for visitors to indulge in. We take pride in offering the perfect combination of luxurious ambiance and exceptional service – at rates that allow you to enjoy more of everything Bali has to offer. Regardless of whether you’re looking to relax in the quiet coastal town of Candidasa or seeking the perfect home base from which to explore all of East Bali, the Villas at Rumah Imbang are your top choice for understated luxury accommodations. It’s time to experience Bali.
Rumah Imbang is more of a private compound than a hotel or single villa which one normally finds. The large (24are) property sports 3 traditional Bali villas. There is a common Bale for sitting/dinning, shared large kitchen, and common room with satellite TV, as well as a pool and mediation bale spread across the grounds. The sea with sandy beach is just outside the gate down the steps. All the rooms have just benefited from recent renovations and/or redecorating and have a/c.
Garden Villa: 2 rooms, 1 queen and other 2x twin share a large common bathroom and porch.
Seaview Villa: newly renovated 2 luxury suites with queen beds and private indoor/outdoor baths and semi-private porch.
Master Suite: large queen bedroom and indoor/outdoor bathroom (with make-up corner, tub, and outdoor shower) and a private porch.
We provide a delicious breakfast each day, and the staff is happy to make lunch/dinner on request – as well as turning these into Balinese cooking classes. There are several restaurants within a 10min walk, and the town is 15min. Many restaurants will deliver (in 40min or so – often the choice by guests as once here it’s where they enjoy most to be) or send a car/drive you back.
The property is spacious affording spots to hide away on loungers or under the meditation bale. There’s nothing more enjoyable than have a massage listening to the sounds and feeling the breeze of the sea.
Rumah Imbang thus offers a particularly unique vacation experience ideal for couples, family gatherings or small groupgetaways. It’s truly a private feeling home-away-from-home experience right in the heart of beautiful Bali.
Iis a beautiful and very relaxing Płace to stay In Bali with a wonderful, friendly, and attentive staff. We were very happy with the setting and peaceful ambience.
Stayed for five nights and could have easily spent more time. The staff are amazing - they are very dedicated to Rumah Imbang. Nothing is too much trouble from going shopping for coconuts to serving up the most delicious meals.
A little tip for a safe, great boat ride with a lovely gentleman with good English: stroll down the bottom of the garden, through the gate and you will see the boats lined up - check out the owner Norman of the boat 'Predator'. He took us for a wonderful boat trip to snorkel. I'm not a strong swimmer but I saw so many fish and marine life. We loved our boat trip so much we went out the next day! An amazing place so much to do and also you can just do nothing and watch the water and eat delicious food.
A little paradise in Bali with birds singing in the morning. Recommended for a quiet and regenerating relaxed stay; well-architectured boutique villa property with well-maintained garden and little pool right at the seaside. Also recommended for family stay with children as lots of daily attractions available around. Staff very kind and friendly. We'll be back again!.
The views of the ocean while eating the delicious home-cooked meals made by the friendly staff are wonderful. It also is very nice to hear the bird calls every morning. Although quiet and somewhat secluded, this place has all the modern necessities including A/C and internet access.
I stayed in Rumah Imbang with a friend for two nights and it was lovely!. Spacious room, with beautiful outdoor bathroom. Very kind and professional staff. I loved swimming in the pool and sunbathing in the morning and taking a walk on the sandy beach below the villa. I recommend swimming in the sea, below the villa, as it is rare to have such clean and calm sea on Bali. Luscious green garden to relax all the senses with chimes sounding in the wind helped me unwind after a stressful week at work. Perfect spot for sunset watching and having a sip of your favorite cocktail in the afternoon!! Boats, massages and ordering food from local tasty restaurants available!! I am coming back!!
Just a month later after the first visit, I have stayed in this place again. The place where everybody may admire with a delightful nature, flora and fauna. The place where you can see the ocean in many colors and conditions, where the sun shines brightly and its rays gently care after your body, where every evening GEKKO says "hello my friend", where you are surrounded by nice gentle flowers and beautiful butterflies and birds, where everything is tended for your relaxation.
Thank you Gary for giving one of the most unforgettable and magnificent twinkling in my life.
my stay in this Seaview Suite at Rumah Imbang has been nothing short of exquisite! Thank you Gary and Anya and Gekko Retreats for this lovely Nyepi retreat. I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect ~*~
The Rumah Imbang Villas could not be closer to the sea, near the cute town of Candidasa. Nearby restaurants and spas within walking. Staff is friendly and very helpful! Driver available who knows the areas you want to go to. Rooms are lovely.
Oh! Did I mention the best sunsets... EVER!
This is a special home away from home retreat. Everything you need is available - peaceful mornings with a great breakfast, amazing sunsets, drivers to take you wherever you want to go....boats for snorkeling and a trip to the Secret Beach a must. Vincent's Restaurant close by as well as other restaurants and shops walking distance. Monkey Mountain for an early morning hike. Gary and Anya are great hosts!
We stayed at Rumah Imbang based on recommendation from friends. This is a truly relaxing place, and well run by the owner and staff to provide true hospitality. The villa compound has an immaculately curated garden, perfect sitting and swimming spots for viewing the sunset, access via driver to sights of interest all around Eastern and really Central Bali, access via boat to some fantastic snorkeling off shore and blue lagoon, and lazy white sand beach. We were able to have our meals prepared at the villa by the wonderful staff and chef, as well as enjoy daily massages in the cabana. You absolutely must wake up early to experience the sunrise at the point, overlooking sea, Candidasa bay, volcano, surrounded by monkeys. The transportation situation is easily organized, and I would assume it is also possible to rent a motorbike to go out on your own as well. The staff work very hard to make it a good experience for you.
The stay in Rumah Imbang was like balm to the soul. The staff was very kind and helpful (they arranged massage or cooking class for our request), breakfasts were delicious. Our room was cleaned every day. The furniture and sanitary facilities were adequate for our needs. I miss having a breakfast or only having a rest under a gazebo with the soothing view of see. The beach was a few meters from villa, very nice for snorkelling especially in the morning. The owner is a very kind, responsive, experienced and wise man who has made this place special and we are grateful that we met him. I would like to come back some day.
Hotel is located in a very quiet part of the island. Very close to the beach. The stuff is very friendly. Rooms are comfortable and clean.Great place to spend your holidays with friends and family.
The hotel is in a very beautiful & silent location far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.. We stayed in a beach view villa and the view from our room was so devine.
Rumah Imbang looks rather like a nice country house on the beach where my wife and I enjoyed fine relaxation. Warm hospitality of the owner Gary and his staff Seri and Ketut captivated us. Environment in the Hotel made specific and attractive conditions for the real rest. Guests can find original music in Gary's library and enjoy it during an incredibly beautiful sunset in the evening. We had a very quiet and nice evening leisure for pleasure. We have bright impressions for the time spent. We will be back at the earliest opportunity. Thank you so much, Gary.
Frankly, when I was in my fatherland I thought that the place where I and my colleagues were going to arrive in couldn’t make us forget the distance which we had to pass for the training and we would need a little bit long time to be recovered. After the first calm night in the hotel I realized that it is a place where every element has been made to show the carefulness of the owner to the visitors’ welfare. Everything was so clean and full of freshness that the second day I didn’t even remember the time we’d spent for travelling.
To my mind, Rumah’s exclusiveness is attributed to its hospitable and polite staff, wherein, you may find the individuals close and allied to your soul and relatives. I figure out that one of the most desirable characteristics of it is its clean environment and isolated location far from the traffic and its terrible noise bordering on the beach of Indian Ocean.
If people really need to identify the surround of really needed relax they can just try to visit and find it in Rumah Imbang having a host of leasure activities there.
I stayed at Rumah Imbang with my family and my brothers family and had a fabulous time. The place is very comfortable, clean, safe and located in a very quiet part of Candidasa. Sunsets are a particular highlight of this property as the outdoor eating area has clearly been designed to take full advantage of the spectacular Balinese sunsets. Don't expect an ideallic white sandy beach at your door step but it is certainly clean enough for a swim and snorkel. There is a fantastic snorkelling spot just a short boat trip off the coast which we all enjoyed immensely. We joked that we met the whole cast of Finding Nemo (except for Bruce). Wayan is always helpful and cooks up a great breakfast in the morning. The nearby warung is also just a short walk away and serves great and food at ridiculously cheap prices. We arranged a pick up from the airport with Gary and given how tucked away the place is, I would strongly advise this as the trip is about 2 hours and the place may be difficult to find for out of town drivers. Highly recommended!
In the very rare event of the airport being closed when you are due to arrive, we will endeavour to reschedule your villa booking to a mutually beneficial time.
