“Bliss in Bali”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Stayed in Bali for our anniversary for 5 nights. The entrance itself is was inspiring, and the quick check in set the tone for a relaxing holiday.

This resort was recommended by a friend and it lived up to its billing.

The size of the resort is huge. After reading up on tripadvisor I was circumspect about the amount of walking about that it would entail. It was not bad at all. Not too much of an exercise or an issue at all.

The landscaping of the resort is absolutely beautiful. The lobby is constructed in traditional Balinese style with beautiful statues scattered about the entire property, There is a lagoon at the center of the property with monitors and multiple species of birds and fishes for company. The grounds were immaculately maintained.

There are three pools in the property, We largely used the infinity pool by the beach and it is nice to say the least. The sunrise view is spectacular and would recommend getting a wakeup call to catch it atleast once on the trip.

The food at the resort, especially the breakfast was scrumptious. Would recommend, in particular, the Lagoon restaurant. The prices did not seem too expensive compared to other 5 Stars.

The attitude of the staff was friendly and courteous. The rooms looked slightly dated but did not take anything away from our experience.

Overall, I would like to come back and would recommend the same to friends and family.

This is a TOP 5* hotel, quiet, friendly, with big rooms, bid bed. The lagoon, the pool, the beach, the restaurants inside, well, everything is world class, we really apreciate everything. People are very friendly, modest, nice, and atentious with us.
Already recomended, to some friends, who went there, and got dazled by its beauty.
Would be back for sure.

Room Tip: low floors rooms, with lagoon view, near the breakfast place at the lagoon.

We were in Ayodya for two nights on the basis of tripadvisor recomendations.

It is a beach front resort built in the balinese style. The resort is huge and the rooms large and spacious but that made getting from the beach to the room an exercise.... lazy us.

We prefer a more modern kind of resort and walked down the beach to all the resorts for meals and a dekko .. but a special mention for the infinity pool and the beach of this hotel is due ... it was the cleanest and the best.

the services are average due to the aging staff but the pizza and mocktails were great and reasonably priced for a five star. A real put down is that they charge you for wifi when it is freely available in even small restaurants.

i would not visit the hotel again and would prefer a more recently made property.

Room Tip: something closer to the beach or pool facing

I have just returned from a one week stay at the Ayodya. The hotel's gardens/lagoons and pools are more beautiful than any other 5 star resort that I have stayed in. They are meticulously maintained. There are two pools at the resort - one large lagoon pool and an infinity pool overlooking the beach. Both were quiet throughout my time at the resort and there were always sunbeds available. We ate at Surfer's Corner, the poolside snack bar, each lunchtime. Food was very good and you could order from your sunbed! Breakfast was excellent with something to suit everyone. The staff at the hotel are very pleasant.

Now for the negatives. The biggest disappointment was the room. We stayed in a "deluxe" room. I asked for a high room with views of the lagoon which was exactly what I was given. The views over the lagoon were lovely. However, the room itself was old and tired and not acceptable for a 5 star hotel. I appreciate that you get what you pay for (I paid only £720 for a week's B&B) but I still expected better. It was clean but basic. The air-conditioning worked but was not great. The king size bed was two singles put together and the bed linen was not luxurious. The beach at the resort was large with plenty of sunbeds but was not maintained to the same standards as the hotel grounds and had quite a bit of litter on it. The hotel also disappointingly did not have free wifi which I was surprised at for a hotel in 2013. Nearby bars / restaurants did have free wifi which we used. I still had to pay the hotel 30,000 rupiah for 15 minutes' access to check into my flight on the last day though!

There is no entertainment in resort and most of the restaurants in the hotel were deserted in the evenings. There are however restaurants outside of the resort within walking distance and taxis are cheap. Be careful when asking for a taxi at the transport desk of the hotel as they will try to give you the hotel's private transport which was about double the price when I used it. Ask for a metered taxi. Many restaurants will pick you up and take you back for free though. I'd highly recommend a visit to Bumbu Bali in Tanjung Benoa (they pick you up and take you back) and Arwana restaurant (inside Laguna hotel on the beachfront).

In summary, I would recommend the hotel if you are not fussy about your room or can get a decent deal on one of their "grande" or "palace" rooms. I assume that these would have been of a better standard. The quiet pool and gardens made up for the disappointing room. I saw a couple of the more modern hotels in Nusa Dua during the week and I still preferred the style of the Ayodya.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lagoons or the pool. Upgrade your room to a "grande" or &qu...

I stayed here for 3 days with my husband for our honeymoon.
We were greeted with a cool towel and welcome drink and staff were excellent.
We stayed in a base level room which had a very clean marble bathroom, large room with king bed and flat screen TV and cable.
The grounds were excellent, huge and manicured with central lagoon.
Two large pools were also well maintained.
Breakfast was busy but lots of options.

Nusa dua is very quiet and only a 10 aud taxi ride into kuta if needed.

We stayed for 7 nights. In summary, the hotel's design is definitely impressive, the location at Nusa Dua is beautiful, the staff is very helpful, the rooms big, clean, but dated. Nusa Dua is a beautifully designed secure "luxury tourist city" with a large mall nearby. This keeps you away from the "action" in Kuta or elsewhere but you can easily go there by taxi for about 8 euros. The beach is among the best in Bali, the spa is excellent and the service is very good. The hotel is built around a big man-made lagoon which gives it a really exotic feel. The concierge organized a tour exactly as we wanted. Keep in mind that the internet is not free and the rooms have only Ethernet. WiFi is only available at the lobby. The hotel told us that they plan to offer free WiFi, maybe as a result from the many guest complaints in Tripadvisor and elsewhere. Our only problem with the room was a "smelly" air condition, which only had: Off-Low-Mid-High buttons. Our solution was to turn it off at night and keep the windows open, since the temperature was OK and we had a mosquito repellent plugged in. Yes the hotel is a bit dated, but very well-kept. We believe that an extensive renovation, at least for the rooms, would at some point be needed. However, the Ayodya would be our choice, if we visited Bali again. Check the Palace Wing. Generally highly recommended.

Room Tip: The lagoon view is beautiful. Try not to get the ground floor (Level 1) as people would walk in fron...

We chose to stay in an Ayodya Palace room as a special treat for the last days our Bali holiday. We had come to Bali to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday and decided that we would finish this special holiday celebration in style. Ayodya Palace rooms include special extras like private lounge area for breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails. It also has its own pool area in a delightful garden setting. From the moment we checked in we were well looked after. The staff in the lounge were so lovely, their gracious manner and helpful efficiency made us feel very special. We dined at the hotel's Waterfall Restaurant one evening, opting for the special Rijstaffel meal - this was exceptional both in taste and service. Our room had a distant view of the ocean from the balcony and was comfortable, spacious and included all the amenities you would expect and some little extras. If we had one complaint it would be the shower head in our bathroom which was in need up updating. The beachfront area of this hotel is one of the nicest in the Nusa Dua area with white sand and clean, clear water for swimming.

I would recommend the Ayodya Palace rooms for anyone looking for a full service hotel with special extras.
