Nice resort, small intimate and comfortable. It's the sort of resort that you stay at while you enjoy things off the resort. A drawback is the busy four lane road to cross to get to shopping and restaurants. The communal dining was okay, but if you don't feel like conversation it was a bit hard as we were all seated...

We have just had 10 relaxing days here - lovely hotel and great, friendly staff. The hotel is not in the main Sanur area but if you don't like walking Gede will give you a free ride to the shops, beach and restaurants. If he is not available it's only a 20,000 Rp ($2) taxi ride. We met several interesting...

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in Bali ever over the last two decades - Quiet, secluded private - its like staying in your own villa without the hassle of arranging all the services which include breakfast and other meals. The staff treat you like family - and all the services can come to you so...

I recently took my extended family (3 adult kids and partners) to Bali for a family celebration. Pondok Ayu was ideal. 5 big rooms (including one large suite). In great condtion, the private hotel met our needs to a tee. Nothing was too much trouble. Great staff including the amazing Gede (manager) who went out of his way - consistently...

Returned to Sydney this morning and cannot wait to return to Pondok A! What a special place! Pondok A has the right balance of warmth/inclusiveness and the opportunity to enjoy timeout. Time frames seem very flexible - wake up at leisure - greeted with a smile - nobody worried if the breakfast requests stretched over an hour! Eggs great and...

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Pondok Ayu. The staff were so lovely- really caring, considerate and genuine. They went out of their way to help me with my beginners Bahasa Indonesia - very patient and generous people!! The rooms were clean and spacious, and I really enjoyed the chance to stay in such a small boutique hotel. As clearly...

My entire family stayed at Pondok Ayu for a full week to celebrate mum's 60th. From the moment we were picked up by a smiling Gede (driver, tour guide and all-round great guy) until the moment we left, it was a great experience and one that I cannot recommend highly enough. Our family booked four of the five rooms available...

I am just finishing (sadly) a one week stay at Pondok Ayu. If what you are seeking is supreme relaxation; bend-over-backwards, personalized service; clean, well-maintained and unpretentious accommodation then this is your place! Pondok Ayu feels like a fully-serviced family holiday house - all the comfort of a family property (except that you don't have to lift a finger!). Pondok...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pondok Ayu is a little piece of heaven located in beautiful Sanur, Bali. We are a small boutique hotel that provides very personalised service by our wonderful friendly staff. Pondok Ayu can be booked on a room by room basis or you can book the entire hotel for a group or family holiday, this can be done direct with us or through a travel agent. We are surrounded by splendid gardens and a wonderful peaceful setting. As we fell in love with Bali many years ago I am sure you will do the same thing with Pondok Ayu and the atmosphere here. Sanur is in a very good position as it is at the start to most of your tours and central to Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua and Denpasar. ... more   less
