Reviewed 10 April 2011

I have recently returned from 8 days at Pondok Ayu.We had the whole place to ourselves ( 5 couples) for a 50th birthday / holiday. The staff are amazing and very freindly. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Very good value for money . As other reviewers have mentioned , the only downer is that it's on the wrong side of the highway from the beach and restaurants. This was not a major worry as Gede and Noonga were
always more than willing to drive us across and a ride home in a cab is about $2 aud. Thank you to all the staff for making a friends birthday more than memorable. PS I will miss your poached eggs Wayan !!!

We went to Bali with a group of 10 for my husbands 50th. We had Pondok all to ourselves and it was just brilliant. The rooms and the suite were so clean, beautifully decorated and the beds - so comfy. Gede and all the staff were just wonderful and looked after us so well. We did not find it a bother not being directly in the heart of Sanur and Gede was very obliging to drop us at dinner, shopping in Sanur ( included in our rate) or take us to Legian etc and on tours for a small fee. As we did not want to be on a time frame we would just get taxis back, the price is so minimal. The pool area was so clean and so inviting. It was nice to be pampered every day with a fully cooked breakfast and our rooms cleaned and beds made. The only thing to think about was do you swim, shop or eat! What more could you ask for. Just perfect.

Small hotel with only 5 rooms. We had the suite: huge place. Small pool but almost private. Not a good area to have a walk at nigth, very isolated. They provide a service of chauffeur to drive you downtown but you have to come back before 22h. Internet WiFi available at a very expensive price 34,000 Roupies/1 hour compare to the Internet cafe close by 4,000 Roupies/1 hour. Excellent breakfast, good service provide by the personnel.

My husband and I stayed at Ponduk Ayu twice during our two month adventure in Indonesia.
I'm so grateful to have started out here! From being met at the airport and welcomed at the entrance to this charming Hotel - our stay was perfect.
The staff are delightful! The rooms spacious, spotlessly clean - and the owner has clearly thought of every need you might have!
Breakfasts at the "Round Table" were sumptuous and plentiful - and gave us a great opportunity to chat with other guests re: places to visit, to dine, etc.
I really can't use enough superlatives to describe this little bit of Heaven - and sincerely hope we can return one day!

The reviews below say it all.....just to add, it is a good walk to the beach (don't attempt it in the middle of the day!) but that means it is really quiet and peaceful day or night. Gede will drive you if he is free or taxi's are cheap. Look forward to returning in future.

We chose Pondok Ayu because of the good reviews on trip advisor and we couldn't have been happier. From the moment of first contact Barbara was quick to respond and help with our booking. Gede picked us up from the airport, and although we were a bit worried going through some tiny backstreets, we soon arrived at our oasis. Huge villas, spotlessy clean and beautifully furnished. The pool was always sparkling and there were even some toys to play with in the pool. The staff could not do enough for you, they were always smiling and aiming to please. The food was delicious and very well priced. I could not fault Pondok Ayu and will be sure to recommend it to my friends. This is a smaller venue so is run like a family home where all are welcome.
