“Nice garden, boutique hotel, BUT”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We stayed there 4 nights. WE had two rooms - family and deluxe room. Quite expensive, we payed over 800 EUR. Bungalows are very nice furnished in "Balinesian" rustical style - perfect focuse on each detail. Big problém is bathroom, which open space - nice, large, spacy - but you are divided from your neighbour bungalow by only 2,5m high wall, which does not reach to the ceiling - you can hear everything.
No hair dryer, no shampoo, just 2 small pcs. of soap.
Pool is quite small against the number of clients and you share it very often with divers taking training for their first dive.
Drinks at the restaurant are quite expensive,, in fact you pay the same like in Europe. Food is good, but twice or three times more expensive than outside the resort.
Nice swimming at the ocean, good chance for snorkeling but you should try a boat trip to islands - definitely nicer.

Room Tip: Family seems me to be the best choise, with living room

Great place, very friendly staff, great spa, beautifully designed garden and pool, dedicated beach area partly shaded by a magnificent banyan tree, very good food, good diving instructors... Rooms are decorated with taste. Pemuteran is small and remote, but for those who look for a quiet and/or diving-centered holiday, Pondok Sari is perfect.

I stayed at Pondok Sari in June for 8 nights. Lovely room, beautiful gardens, great breakfast - yummy pancakes and juices and the resort is right on the beach. Putu the Manager spoke to me every morning at breakfast and his vast knowledge and friendly ways made for great conversation. Snorkelling off the beach was wonderful. Menjangan Island was just fabulous for snorkelling, the fish and coral like I have never seen before. The local warungs in the village are great and everyone is so friendly.
The only negative is that the room did not have a small refrigerator, this would have been useful. I would definately stay here again.

My wife and I spend 5 nights at pondok Sari.
Beatiful garden with old plantations, but therefor the rooms gets very dark.
Restaurant quit good wih the new manager Putu, who comes around and asked if every thing is ok. The rest of the staff was also ok.

I stayed here for 4 nights with my family and we really enjoyed it!

Pros: Beautiful landscaping and structures. Lots of lovely carvings (check out the pool bathroom!)

Quiet, pretty beach area, yummy & filling breakfast included, easy access to other restaurants, kind & polite staff, lovely rooms, outdoor bathrooms (fun!) Good swimming & decent snorkeling. Awesome pool & spa center. A/C! Lots of beach chairs.

Cons: for me, this is kind of expensive, but I think the lodging is worth the price. The restaurant was too expensive for us, we ate elsewhere usually.
- the beach sometimes gets trash washed up from Java but they work hard to clean it up.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have beach views themselves, but there are lots of tables & lounge chairs by t...

We stayed there almost a week as a family. The bungalows are clean and nice, the best part is the outdoor bathroom. The pool is nice as is the beach.
The reservation process was very smoothly handled and the cleaning staff does a great job. We were however disappointed in the food and restaurant (and reception) staff who could be more service orientated and we ended up eating at other places.
