I stayed at ayana for my honeymoon last month. We stayed in a suite in the club section. Whilst it was great to be able to pop in for a drink or a snack in the club lounge whenever we wanted I just don't think it was worth the extra cost. The food was pretty average compared to the other restaurants in the resort and not very substantial. The drink choice was also pretty limited.
In saying that the resort was amazing. The grounds are spectacular and so well maintained. Even though the resort was almost at full capacity whilst we were there it never felt crowded. Sometimes we would be the only two people by the pool (the River pool is the best!). We ate at almost all the restaurants and apart from the Italian restaurant (who wants Italian in bali anyway) the food was incredible. The kisik grill is stupidly expensive for bali but I tell you it was some of the best seafood I've eaten in my life!
I wouldn't really recommend the rock bar. Its a massive tourist trap and even as guests we waited almost half an hour to get in. The view is equally amazing at the ocean pool and you can sip your cocktail in the pool while watching the sunset.
Or go to the roof top bar at rimba - it is amazing! There are no crowds, incredible surroundings , good drinks and wonderful personalised service. There is a free shuttle bus every 15 mins to and from rimba.
The service was incredible as u would expect. At breakfast of a morning we would be greeted by the staff by our name which was really nice. The staff were al ways willing to help and offer suggestions and help in planning our day trips.
Jimbaran beach is only a aud $3 taxi fare away, make sure you had down there for a seafood dinner on the beach.
