Okay place. We booked this place because of the great reviews it has. Reading from other reviewers, it seems like this hotel is the best thing out there. I am travelling for one month total in Bali, in different hotels and, from my humble point of view, this hotel does not deserve the hype. The hotel is pretty old. When we arrived I asked if we were in the new section or old, the woman said the new section. Turns out we were in the old section. Near our room outside we could smell sewage, very strongly. While walking to our room the first time I noticed how incredibly dirty the large fish tank in the lounge area was. I could barely see the fishes inside. That left me wondering what else was being left out from hotel maintenance. We booked a "breakfast included" package, turns out we had a continental breakfast, which consisted of a piece of bread, and some fruits. Again, it's okay. But being a month in Bali we had the chance to try several hotels from all ranges and it was the first time we couldn't even have eggs with breakfast. Feral cats walk around the hotel, which sounds cool but this is Bali, where, on many occasions, I have noticed feral cats and dogs are infested with fleas and ticks. Maybe these ones were okay, but it's a gamble I'd rather not make. Also, and I write this with a light heart, this particular hotel caters to an older clientele. This means that by 7:30AM all the pool chairs are taken. Very nice people and I really enjoyed chatting with them, but if you're looking for a hipper place, look elsewhere. I feel that for $65 USD one can have much better in Bali. And if you can't find anything cheaper/better in Sanur you might as well just chose a different Balinese destination for your holiday.

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for your comments on Trip Advisor after your recent visit to The Bumi Ayu Bungalows.

It is very constructive and we will do our best to improve.
Your reviews were a great motivation in order for us to be always positively serving our values guests.

Regarding our breakfast, the information regarding breakfast is stated in the booking that our breakfast consist of ala carte continental or American. But surely our staff should re inform you during your stay.

We do apologies regarding the cat. But Bali there are plenty of wild cats and dogs. We have tried to remove them by contacting the BAWA - Animals foundation, but other cats will always come for food. We can not stop it.

Again, your reviews is very well appreciated. We will do our best to improve.

Warm regards,

We are leaving the bumi ayu in a couple of days to go home, it is so nice with lovely staff and management it really feels like a home away from home. People who come here regularly keep coming back it is like a retirement village and you are welcomed home by the staff many have been here over 20 years. It has a great pool which is access able for those that need easy access to enter and exit the pool. The grounds are lush and it is not to large. About 10 minutes away from the Sindu beach market which is great for shopping of which we are well known to the girls who run the shops. Wayan owns shop 68 and she is lovely and gives good massages . I could go on talking about Sanur for hours, but try it for yourself.

Room Tip: The rooms of which are many are best found around the pool area which has Wifi.

This hotel has everything you can wish for the money (no beachfront but very close). Good pool, spacious rooms, good selection for breakfast, walking distance to everything. No complains about service either.

Another terrific stay. What Bumi Ayu does so well is consistency. Nothing changes here, which is a very good thing. Food is great, location is great, price is exceptional. You will not do better if you are looking for traditional-style,casual, relaxing holiday. We have stayed here many times and have never had a complaint. We have never heard one from any of the other guests either!!

My husband and I revisited beautiful bumi in June. Once again we had a marvellous stay. We love staying here, the staff are very friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The food is superb and the rooms are thoroughly cleaned every day. We stay in room 38 which is lovely and private and next to the pool. We cannot wait to return again next year, if not before.
