Me and my wife have travelled so many places in last 10 years and just back from a 3 weeks Dubai+Kenya+Singapore+Bali+Jakarta trip and have stayed in some very good hotels (including the Marina Bay Sands Singapore) but the services and people of Ayung resort has definitely toucher us - really amazing people with always a smile for you. Hats off to Fritz (the GM) and their HR department for hiring such amazing people - how can not one or two but everyone has such an effortless smile on their faces at this place - so good ! The restaurant is a must visit for a formal meal purely because of the service and of course the good food.
The resort itself gives you amazing value for your price (we were upgraded to a superior room from the deluxe so our experience is based on the superior room). They say 'hear the silence and peace' I think and yes they are not lying. The views from the breakfast lobby is breathtaking. The infinity pool was like a private pool with a lovely jungle view where I was the only one for over an hour.
I'd definitely recommended this place over the crowded and commercial Nusa Dua resorts - this is true Bali for you with a difference!

In the rocks of the hotels pathways and along it’s 600 meters long riverbank fronting the Ayung Resort, 250 of the finest Balinese Stone Carvers have painstakingly worked,for over a 2 year period,to carve the spectacular Hindu mythologies, Ramayana and Mahabharata amongst others. These stone carvings have become the most sought after photo opportunity of the hotel. ... more less
