A group of friends & I just organized a dinner here at Pondok Pitaya last night and it was amazing. The guy who helped orchestrate the dinner was named Darius and he was an amazing help, very giving of his time to answer any questions I had about planning the dinner. We as a group ordered the Babi Guling, and it was amazing. The staff was super friendly and set up a reserved table area near the front of the restaurant so we can have our own space + watch the sunset, as they brought out the Suckling Pig & cut it open right in front of us, as well as created a separate table of everything we need to create the Babi Guling, with rice, veggies, sambal, etc. The food was amazing & the service was awesome – one of my friends literally thanked me for inviting her for what she called a "celebrity dinner", because the staff made it feel very special and we felt very cared for. It was an amazing night that we will all remember thanks to the great people and great food here. It doesn't hurt that Balian Beach is such an amazing, quiet place, too :)

The worst place to stay. Asked for 3st towel for child never received. Food was horrible: taste of plastic and consistency of plastic ( fried to much) when we finish disgusting lunch of 40$ we go straight to local market and it real food fried chicken and sate for 4$: them was delicious. The rooms full of rats!!! You can see them from the bed! All night them just running around room in the middle of walls at 5 o’clock them start to come inside room falling down from the roof!!! Are you serious? In 10 years living in Bali never was disappointed like this.👎👎👎

Time @ Pondok Pitaya was like living in a dream. I did my Yoga training there with Ottawa's In Alignment Yoga. The service, food, accommodation, love & caring that went into every day was outstanding.

I was there for retreat. The rooms in the back are nicer as they are quiter. Good for relaxing. There are yoga shala as well. The beach is not crowded, right spot for surfing. You can walk in the area to see the other side of Bali.
