We only stayed one night at Dara Ayu Villas & Spa, but it was absolutly worth it! The outdoor bathroom at our huge suite was big anough to have a waterfall and a pont with fish swimming around our bathtub. But the best are the views! The hotel is located in a quite natural valley and you can walk into...

Glad you had a great time at our little piece of paradise. Being away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud but wiithin a reasonable drive ( 40 mins) with a shuttle makes for a relaxing stay - our menu is always being upgraded so you dont have to leave if the peace and quiet gets to you and you...

Thanks for the kind words about our staff - they have come a long way in the 6 years since we recruited most of them from the local village with little english and no hospitality knowledge. The views at Dara Ayu are our special secret!

My husband and I recently stayed at Dara Ayu, in the Dewi Laksmi Villa, which included the Honeymoon package. The package included a picnic lunch (the food was amazing), massage, and candle lit dinner. We really appreciated the staff's effort in making our experience a very memorable one. Overall, the daily food selection (not in the honeymoon package) is minimal,...

Many thanks for your kind words about Dara Ayu and your understanding of the "night orchestra" ( insects of various kinds and noises!!) . We try to minimise their impact but it is difficult in our environment. With respect to food selection we will be reviewing the menu in coming weeks and will endeavour to broaden the selection. We will...

I LOVED the Dara Ayu Villas. If you want some R&R this is the best place. The room and facilities are absolutely gorgeous and with lots of character. I stayed in a villa on the second floor of the main area, got the view of gorgeous sunrises and rice terraces. My room had no private pool but I did not...

Paradise in rice paddies! Wonderful unique resort with a fantastic staff! Rooms, views, food and service were outstanding. Perfect for couples. Staff went out of their way to accommodate all our needs and requests. Dewi Laksmi villa overlooks rice paddies and has private pool.

Wow, absolutely breathtaking, a photographers dream. Traditional yet modern. We stayed in the Dewi Villa Kunti with two rooms and private pool.

Very intimate, although each villa totally...
