Poppies Cottages are set in the most beautiful tropical gardens behind a stone wall in Poppies Gang. When you are there you can forget the chaos and madness outside.
The cottages are a little dark inside, but spacious. There is a full media system inside the wardrobe so you can test your newly purchased DVDs on the TV! Best of all is the fabulous outdoor bathroom with sunken shower/bath - just gorgeous.
There is a generous size porch out front and every morning they deliver bananas and hot tea.
The pool area is WONDERFUL- tropical, secluded and dripping in bouganvillea flowers.
The staff, from pool bar servers to gardeners, were all friendly.
The only problem with Poppies Cottages is the hassle outside. We were so sick & tired of traipsing up & down the lane to the beach and shops, dodging motorbikes, cars and drunken tourists. Unfortunately, over the years I think the Kuta area has become over-developed and lost its charm.

We have stayed at poppies 1 on two different occassions and foud it beautiful. Poppies 2 is nothing like this. There were hardly any staff located here, and along with the rocky and dry grounds it had a somewhat abandoned feel to it. We were told we could have the use of the beautiful pool at poppies 1 and that it was nearby. This was not the case and necessitated a long and uncomfortable walk through noisey streets to get there. It was a little cheaper than poppies 1.

Room Tip: There are better rooms for better value around. Dont bother.

We regret your disappointment, but feel obliged to point out one or two things regarding Poppies 2.

The rate for a cottage for two persons at Poppies 2 is actually less than 40% of the rate for a cottage at Poppies 1. The two properties are quite different, and cannot be compared with one another, and are not promoted as one property. Regarding staffing levels at Poppies 2, there is always a minimum of one staff member present around the clock, for these 4 cottages, only two of which are available for short stays.

In our booking confirmation, we are very careful to point out the differences between Poppies1 and Poppies 2, ie the lack of facilities at the latter, and while we mention that the pool at Poppies 1 may be used by Poppies 2 guests, at no time do we say that it is nearby.

Popies is a wonderful quiet place in the middle of kuta, near the beach and party center, with cottages in a amazing oasis-like garden! The rooms are big, clean, quiet and very nice. Staff is friendly and helpful, the price is more than ok! Nothing negative, just top! Enjoy it!

when you step in through the gate to poppies cottages all the noise and hectic traffic disappear and you can enjoy the serenity of a tropical atmosphere. poppies cottages is right in the center of kuta. but when i relaxed at the pool or on my private patio i forgot i was in kuta.

This is one of the best hotel I have ever stayed. The hotel ground has plenty of flora. Swimming pool is small but very beautiful. The room is very comfortable and it has lot of amenities. There is a very good music system in the room. Rest you can see in pictures.

What a find. Gorgeous gardens, pool in stunning setting. Happy helpful staff. Spacious peaceful rooms. A bit retro but well serviced. A truly Unique homely place to chill out in. Can't believe this sanctuary is in the heart of kuta. Famous Poppies restaurant a few steps away. Fantastic menu, Gluten free food available for celiacs. We will be back.....
