ABOUT EAST BALI
East Bali is an emerging destination for the more discerning visitor with more natural attractions than any other part of Bali.
Our area of Karangasem has it all-dramatic scenery, dozens of beaches and coral reefs, WW2 shipwrecks for diving and snorkeling, ancient sites, tropical forests, beautiful rice terraces, royal palaces, trekking, quiet roads, and dominating the whole regency is the towering presence of Bali’s highest and most sacred Mt. Agung.
The pace here is slower here, without the tacky nightspots and excesses of South Bali. The three main areas for tourism are Candi Dasa, Padang Bai and Amed.
So many attractions are waiting for the visitor in our local area within just 1 hour or less of the resort. These are just some.
- Swim with The Dolphins.
- Teganan Village: The oldest in Bali.
- Besakih Temple: The mother temple of Bali.
- Taman Soekasada: The Royal Bathing Palace.

The Safari Park: see the lions, tigers, monkeys, elephants, rhinos etc all in their natural safari environments. Also visit the park waterboom for water rides & great water fun.
From your arrival at Ngurah Rai airport at Kuta it takes around 1 hour and 15 min.s to reach the Resort. The drive allows the visitor to see the beautiful countryside and marvel at the panorama filled with coconut palms and spectacular rice fields and terraces.
On route you pass first through the famous resort of Sanur and then onto the new by-pass. Steadily the real and untouched Bali becomes evident and the character and architectural culture becomes visible at every turn in the road.
The journey continues through varied scenes of beauty as you pass along the coastal road and onwards to the Resort of Candi Dasa.
Bali Palms Resort in Candi Dasa provides the perfect place to settle down and relax. It is very close to the major attractions of East Bali, and the main shop and restaurant strip is only 200m from the Resort. It’s the place to re-juvenate, start a new life, make new friends and just enjoy the ambience of this special place where time just goes slow.
