“Luxurious Extravagance”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We’d heard so much about this resort so just had to stay here to see for ourselves. We booked a Hotel room for 3 nights. The arrival and check in was quick, although the room was not reading so we went to look around and have lunch. Sani Sani Italian was the place we settled on and were not disappointed, great food and service.
The room was great, very spacious and clean with a lovely balcony overlooking manicured gardens. The resort is enormous, 77 hectors of land, most unused, the resort built close to and over the cliffs down to the Indian Ocean. Separate areas depending on your accommodation choice and pools positioned around these areas and hanging off the cliff face. This pool, the Ocean Pool was our favourite, sea water. You can also go to the Kubu Beach which is the resorts private beach, but its pot luck as to whether you can swim or not, red flags up the day we went. Shuttles take you from area to area and resort to resort. The sister resort, RIMA is also available to guests to enjoy their facilities, which are fabulous also. The Resorts both have fantastic bars, AYANA signature bar is The Rock Bar and RIMA has the The Roof Top Bar, both fantastic places to chill and have a cocktail at the end of the day. Guest are given priority to enter The Rock Bar. If I had to choose a few words for the experience its “luxurious extravagance”. From the pools to the bars to the staff we could not fault this place, except the prices, these resorts are definitely not for the money conscious. Prices are extravagant for Bali to say the least, so you would expect the service and quality to be “A Grade” and they are. Will definitely be back, a nice resort to spend the last couple of days in peace and quiet before leaving.

Room Tip: Make sure you go early to get a cabana at the Ocean Pool as there are only 9

There are some great points about this hotel. It’s set on a cliff side overlooking the ocean and is surrounded by lush green forests. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There are numerous pools and restaurants, plus the breakfast selection was the best I have ever had anywhere. But unfortunately the positives end there.
Considering how much it costs to stay at this hotel I hoped they would go above and beyond for their customers. This was definitely not the case. I assumed the rooms would be amazing – far from. The decor is old and in desperate need of updating. The room had a dusty smell and there were stains everywhere. Some of the hotels which cost half the price of this one had much nicer rooms.
We had a group of 7 stay at this hotel and despite asking upon booking and again at check in to be put into adjacent rooms we ended up on different floors and miles from one another (despite the fact that the hotel was half empty). I got put on the ground floor in a room right next to a golf course, so had to draw all the curtains to get privacy and then got woken up early in the morning by golfers right outside.
But the biggest drawback with this hotel would have to be that it’s miles from anywhere. This allows for the restaurants and the spa to be ridiculously overpriced as there’s nowhere else in the vicinity to go. Be prepared to wait for ages for taxis and spend a great deal of time traveling anywhere you go.
This hotel may be for you if what you’re after is isolation and spending a lot of money. Otherwise do yourself a favour and pick a nicer hotel closer to the Kuta/Seminyak area.

Dear ‘Buttercup437’

Thank you for staying at AYANA Resort and Spa.

I am delighted to know that you enjoyed the ocean views, gardens and breakfast. I appreciate your comments on where we can improve and apologize that we could not accommodate your group in rooms next to each other or all on the same floor.

We always try to fulfil guest requests but cannot guarantee that all rooms in a group will be next to each other, as it depends on occupancy upon check-in. As you mentioned, AYANA’s location is far from the hustle and bustle of Bali’s busy tourist areas, and therefore it appeals mostly to travellers who are seeking maximum relaxation and access to on-site facilities including 15 restaurants and bars (across AYANA and new sister hotel RIMBA), 11 pools and private beach. Our pricing is consistent with other 5-star hotels in Bali. Many guests also enjoy being close to the Jimbaran village area, where they can explore the traditional markets, fish markets, and shopping and restaurants just 5 minutes away.

The architecture of AYANA is traditional Balinese, and we continually upgrades our facilities. All 290 rooms and suites in the hotel were renovated in 2011 whilst maintaining their Balinese style and charm. Our new sister hotel RIMBA offers 282 more modern, chic rooms which offer a different style and ambience to AYANA’s traditional design.

Again thank you for your feedback, I understand that different guests like different styles of hotels and I hope that perhaps in the future you may consider RIMBA with its more modern style and compact design (not as much walking between pools!).

Best regards,

Roger Habermacher

If you are looking for a classy stay in Bali, this is the ideal vacation spot.

There have accommodations in the form of villas or hotel rooms.

The foyer holds a very sleek infinity pool, and a number of lounges for chilling out. The vast area of greens ensure a soothing atmosphere all round, despite the heat of the sun. Service is excellent, needless to say.

The entire hotel is all glossy and plush and chandeliers. The rooms are prettily-furnished, with very comfortable furniture.

There are also spas and restaurants to convenience all the guests.

It also houses the famous Cliff Bar because one side of the hotel directly faces the exotic seas.

The Ayana was an amazing hotel, great gardens, beautiful infinity swimming pools, great ocean view- a tropical paradise. Great service, staff extremely helpful especially Padmi, Ami and Yuno. The Rock Bar was breath taking. Great choice of restaurants no need to leave the resort as everything is there. Spa, massage and entertainment. I would definately go back as it was a very relaxing holiday. Thank you to everyone there.

I am staying at Rimba, the sister property of Ayana but as guests we have access to Ayana. I have to say it's been an unforgettable stay. The service above all has been so friendly and welcoming. Sekar, at the ocean view pool has been the best! She is so attentive, personable, and sweet. She made the trip for us. I love this place and hope to return.

We had a wonderful stay at Ayana. Stayed at the Club Suite for 4 nights on our honeymoon. Club rooms have access to the lounge where they serve alcoholic drinks and food all day (till about 10pm if I recall correctly), so we spent a lot of time at the lounge. We also spent time at the infinity pools with amazing views, and of course we went to Rock Bar in the evenings. The entire resort is huge and we got tired trying to explore the whole place. We spent all 4 days in the resort and we didnt want to go out! All the restaurants here are good, and on our last night we had a very romantic lobster dinner at the seafood restaurant on the cliffs. Staff are very attentive, two thumbs up to them. Definitely will return again!
