We just got back from our Honeymoon in Bali and I have to say how amazing the Dara Ayu was! Staff were incredible (especially Adi who went above and beyond) the food great and the views breath taking!

We really enjoyed our stay at Dara ayu. The staff especially Adi went out of the way to make our stay memorable. The picnic lunch and the candle light dinner that the staff organised for us was way beyond our expectations. We also tried their spa which was phenomenal. The resort is 45mins away from a ubud center however they...

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Dara Ayu. Our candlelight dinners have been a highlight for many of our guests while others have favoured the spa. Given the distance from Ubud we strive to provide guests with a restful environment where they can relax away from the hustle and bustle of other parts of Bali....

If you want hanging gardens like view without spending that same amount of money then Dara Ayu Villa and Spa is the place you should book. Great infinity pool with rice terraces views. Great staff. The spa area - you walk toward a secluded house for it. Great food. Overall, the best hotel I booked in Ubud.

Thanks for taking the time to review Dara Ayu. Glad you enjoyed our piece of heaven in the hills. Our staff have grown immensely in the 7 years since we recruited most of them from the local villages. Their natural hospitality and service attitude are key strengths of the operation.

Dara ayu villas and spa was a breathtaking beautiful experience. So remote that's not a single one of our drivers could find it without being directed over the phone. All of the staff were more than friendly and accommodating. We had the honeymoon package and every meal and activity that was offered was more than enough. Thankyou!

Their private villas provide great romantic and intimacy feel, from the architecture, bed, bathroom, and pool. They also provide beautiful Ubud scenery and ambience. And the friendly staff was so helpful.

Our villa was extremely beautiful and staying Indoors and outdoors was both a good idea . A must stay for 3 nights in this resort as it provides and fulfills almost all your needs. The staff is very friendly.

This was an incredible hotel, one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to in my life. I would highly recommend it for couples just wanting to get away and spend time together. I love it, and think just about anyone would!

Beautiful grounds, amazing staff, great hotel. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, ubud is about 40 min drive, but there is a free shuttle to ubud. the views are absolutely amazing. one thing they could upgrade is the sheets on the bed. they started to get holes in them. But that is just a minor detail
