About the Property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps maximum 12

Villa Cocoa Maya is a luxury villa on the Candidasa seafront, set just 20 metres back from one of the town’s very few stretches of sand beach. It has magnificent, sweeping views across the Lombok Strait and is home to a number of internationally celebrated dive sites. Decorated in an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional Balinese furniture, the luxurious furnishings and free-flowing architectural styling provide a relaxed and comfortable haven. The villa’s four extremely spacious bedroom suites each have their own bathroom and large lounge areas with their own unsurpassed ocean views. Three of the suites also have a balcony. Two extra mattresses are available at an extra charge for a maximum of ten guests to enjoy the villa. In addition there is an open-plan, inside living/dining area, as well as a large outdoor covered lounge set back from the sea, and a dining terrace situated closer to the ocean. The spacious garden is complemented by the massive 18m long infinity swimming pool.

Unusually for Candidasa, the villa leads directly onto a white sand beach (many oceanfront properties in the town have ocean access off a retaining wall only). It is therefore possible to enjoy not only the picturesque little beach right on your doorstep, but also the excellent swimming and snorkeling directly off the beach. In addition, it is one of the few properties in Candidasa where dive companies are able to collect and drop you by boat directly in front of the villa!

No need to lift a finger while staying at Villa Cocoa Maya! Our staff members are there to ensure that your holiday is as stress-free, hassle-free and relaxed as it should be, while affording you privacy at all times.
• Our manager leads the staff to meet the expectations of each guest.
• Two staff provides all the housekeeping, food and beverage services.
• Our cook is in charge of your daily complimentary breakfast, and will provide any other meals you would like off our à la carte menu, or want to have prepared. We do not offer self-catering at the villa although the staff are more than happy to show you how they prepare the traditional Balinese dishes that we offer.
• The gardener/pool attendant provides discreet maintenance of the garden and pool.

The Balinese are well known in the international hotel trade for their exemplary levels of ‘intuitive service’, and the staff at Villa Cocoa Maya is no exception. Our manager will happily organise – among other things – transport, excursions, snorkeling and diving, restaurant bookings and spa treatments.

Food and beverages
A complimentary breakfast from our breakfast menu is provided throughout your stay. Food is such an interesting, and delicious, part of a Balinese holiday that we offer an à la carte menu of Balinese and international cuisine which is prepared by the villa cook. There are also numerous restaurants in walking distance of the villa.

Our beverage list, for your account, includes both non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks. Tea and coffee is complimentary, as is bottled water from the water dispenser. Safe ice is always used.
In addition we will endeavour to accommodate any dietary requirements or additional beverages which are not on our menu, where possible.

Bedroom Suites
All four of the spacious and light bedroom suites are fitted with king-size beds, bedside tables and lamps, air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and DVD players. A choice of pillow types is available and all bed linen is pure cotton. Ample cupboard space is provided and each suite has a large open-plan seating area with comfortable sofas. The bedrooms are decorated in an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional Balinese furniture and artwork.

Joglo Suite
The master suite, the only accommodation on the top storey, is the piéce de resistance, not only of Villa Cocoa Maya but, we like to think, the whole of Candidasa! To our knowledge this is the only property in Candidasa which incorporates a Javanese joglo as a bedroom and, as an added bonus, has unequalled mountain and ocean views!

A joglo is a wooden frame building built from solid teak, using only joinery. The Javanese designed these knock-down buildings to represent the best of human traits. As such different parts of the building represent different things. Individually built, each joglo is unique, with the carving style and structural details being decided by the craftsman. The joglo in Villa Cocoa Maya is a magnificent example of Javanese craftsmanship and carving.

The bedroom’s special feel is further enhanced by wrap-around windows, and glass sliding doors that lead onto a large private balcony. Views from the Joglo suite stretch across the Lombok Strait to the Blue Lagoon peninsula, Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, and even the island of Lombok itself on a clear day.
In keeping with the history of the overarching structure, the romantic 120m² Joglo suite is appointed with a solid teak four-poster bed, overhung by a mosquito net. In addition there is a day bed on which to relax, a desk at which to work, a flat screen television, DVD player, air conditioner and a fully stocked bar fridge. On the large balcony there is outdoor furniture on which to relax, where you can enjoy early morning coffee or evening cocktails. The bathroom has an enclosed toilet, a basin, a bath and an ‘open-to-the-stars’ shower.

Gamelan Suite
Situated on the first floor of the villa, the 56m² bedroom in the Gamelan suite has its own furnished balcony – leading from glass sliding doors – on which to relax, while drinking in the magnificent ocean views. It also has a beautiful king-size four-poster bed with a mosquito net; and an open-plan sitting area with a comfortable L-shaped rattan lounge suite. There is air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a flat-screen television and a DVD player in the suite and a shared, fully stocked, bar fridge is available on the landing between the Ikat and Gamelan rooms. The large bathroom has an enclosed toilet, a basin and a shower.

Ikat Suite
Situated on the first floor next to the Gamelan suite, the bedroom in this suite measures 56m². Furnished with a contemporary king-size Balinese bed and a comfortable L-shaped rattan sofa set, this bedroom has wrap-around glass windows from which to admire the ocean views. There is air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a flat-screen television and a DVD player in the suite and a shared, fully stocked, bar fridge is available on the landing between the Ikat and Gamelan rooms. The bathroom comprises a toilet, a shower and a basin.

Garden Suite
Situated on the ground floor, this 60m² bedroom leads directly, via glass sliding doors, out onto a patio, the garden, pool and the sea. The suite has a contemporary king-size bed and an open-plan sitting area with a comfortable sofa on which to relax. The bedroom also has a fully-stocked bar fridge, an air conditioner, a ceiling fan, television and a DVD player. The spacious bathroom has an enclosed toilet, basin and shower.

We also own a villa in Ubud which we rent as either 3 or 4 bedrooms. Subject to availability we offer discounted stays at both villas when rented as one package. We also provide free transfers between the two villas. Please view Villa Sagitta – property number 1004078 - on HomeAway.

Cultural/tourism activities

Because of Candidasa’s excellent position as the gateway to east Bali, there are many fascinating areas to visit if you’ve had enough of lounging on the beach! Listed are a few of the sights surrounding Candidasa that are worth a visit:

Besakih Temple – Bali’s Hindu Mother Temple

Besakih Temple is about an hour’s drive from the villa, through beautiful scenery. Besakih is the holiest and most important sacred site in Bali. The complex consists of 23 temples located one thousand metres up the slopes of the volcano Mount Agung, the tallest mountain in Bali. Ceremonies at Besakih, of which there are many, are a particularly spectacular sight.

Goa Lawah – The Bat Temple

Less than a 10-minute drive from Villa Cocoa Maya lies the small but important temple of Goa Lawah. The temple is built just in front of a cave opening in the coastal cliffs and is home to thousands of fruit bats. Legend has it that it is also home to a giant dragon-like snake called Basuki.

TirtaGangga Water Palace (Waters of the Ganges)

TirtaGangga is an easy 30-minute drive from Villa Cocoa Maya through beautiful rice paddies, with excellent views of Bali’s biggest volcano, Mount Agung. A real feel of old Bali still exists in this region and it is worth taking a trip back to the villa via the beauty of the Sideman region, famous for its handloom weaving.

Tenganan Village

The isolated Bali Aga people, who are the original Balinese, date back thousands of years. Surprisingly, their bloodline and culture has stayed largely intact over that time and is quite distinct from the rest of the Balinese, with the Bali Aga still speaking a dialect that is entirely their own. Because of their unique beliefs and practices they are of interest to tourists, anthropologists and historians. Tenganan is considered to be an excellent example of a Bali Aga village in Bali. Just a few kilometres away from Villa Cocoa Maya, it is possible here to see examples of the famous double and single ikat weaving; temples; the communal kitchen for preparing ceremonial feasts and the village meeting place.


Approximately an hour’s drive from Candidasa lies the small inland town of Ubud, beautifully situated among picturesque rice paddies. Despite the increasing numbers of tourists, Ubud, known as the cultural heart of Bali, still retains its charm. It is well known for its good shopping, excellent restaurants, fantastic spas, and many spiritual practices and varied courses.


The area around Nusa Penida (approximately 30 minutes by boat from the villa) – together with Komodo and Raj Empat – is considered by many to provide the most exciting, and diverse, diving anywhere in the world, with a diversity of fish rarely seen elsewhere. Combined with amazing shipwrecks and coral reefs up and down the eastern Bali coast, Villa Cocoa Maya provides irresistible diving opportunities.


If you prefer your marine exploration to be a bit more relaxed, and closer to the top of the ocean, look no further than snorkelling right off the beach at Villa Cocoa Maya! The coral reefs directly in front of the villa allow for the presence of beautiful and diverse fish in warm swimming water. If you prefer, the local fishermen can take you snorkelling further afield at the little islands just off our coastline, or at Blue Lagoon at Padang Bai, or further east at White Sand Beach. There is limited snorkelling gear at the villa which you are welcome to use during your stay. It is also possible to hire equipment in town. The staff will happily assist you with rates and arrangements for the fishing boats, or you can chat to the fishermen on the beach yourself.

Nearby beaches

While you have a beach right outside the villa you might feel like a change once in a while. The two best beaches in the area to visit, which make for a really nice day out, are Blue Lagoon near Padang Bai or White Sand Beach. Both are great swimming beaches, are about a 20-minute car trip or boat ride away, have snorkelling, excellent warungs(traditional restaurants) where you can eat grilled fish or seafood, and inexpensive sun beds to hire for the day. If you prefer, you can combine snorkelling off the boat with a lazy day at the beach.


There is beautiful rice field, hill and mountain trekking available around Tirta Gangga. It is also possible to trek up Mount Agung. The walk up the volcano of Mount Agung leaves in the early hours of the morning and takes about 4-5 hours to ascend and the same time to descend.

White Water Rafting

Various operators offer rafting on the Telagawaja River at Karangasem. The rafting portion of the river is about 12km long, takes two hours and has Grade 3 rapids.


Cycling is a beautiful way to see the Balinese landscape and there are tour operators who offer cycling for different expertise and fitness levels, and also tours that include children.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: David and Mailie are the owners of Villa Cocoa Maya. We've always been keen travelers but Bali has found a special place in our hearts and, school schedules permitting, we try and spend as much time there as we can with our two boys.

Why the Owner Chose Candidasa, Karangasem, Bali, Indonesia:
We knew we had a winner when we saw the site for Villa Cocoa Maya. We undoubtedly have the best position in Candidasa - any closer to the sea and you'd fall in! The villa is one of the few in Candidasa that has a beach - and with white sand - and is just a five-minute walk to the restaurants and shops. We're also really fortunate to have a large double stand which is extremely unusual along the Candidasa coast - most hotels are built on the same size plot as the villa! All this with amazing snorkeling right in front of the villa - we couldn't resist!
