We stayed at the Dara Ayu for about a week and we didn't want to leave. When we came here, the volcano erupted (just a small one) and lots of flight got cancelled so we ended up having the whole property to ourselves. No one was here but us! So you can imagine how fun it was! It's like we...

Glad you enjoyed the stay at Dara Ayu. Changes in our management mean Adi has even more time to spoil our guests with his intimate knowledge of the property and the surrounding area. Hopefully no more volcano eruptions will mean more people can enjoy the experience Dara Ayu offers!!

OK, this hotel should easily have an excellent rating but its let down by management. Me and my wife got to the hotel late by an hour at 1am as the taxi driver got lost. Tip: this hotel is past hanging gardens, only a few taxi drivers know it's location. As we got to hotel we were greeted by the...

Came and stayed for three nights at dewi kunti, two villa rooms with private pool and rice field views for both rooms. This place is secluded and very fancy, hotel staff are very understanding and friendly. Made us feel welcomed. The rooms are nice and clean! We all had Bali traditional massages, one of the best in Bali :)

We've been to Bali about ten times, and usually stay in villas around Ubud, but have stayed in losmen years ago, to beach hotels and most in between. Dara Ayu is easily the nicest luxury place we've been there. It's a bit remote, be prepared for that, and in Bali you are close to nature, so expect bugs, lizards etc....

Dara Ayu is a rare gem set in the lush jungle over looking rice fields in a setting which reminds me of what bali used to be like 15 years ago. The views would have to be some of the best the island has to offer. The villas are still relatively new (5 years old) and the staff are very...

I booked randomly a room in UBUD and after a 15 min trip from Ubud I've arrived in this amazing place. I couldn't believe it... I have been welcomed brilliantly by the staff and the owner of the property and felt home straight away. The resort got different villa on the property so you are feeling peace at all time....
