This is the perfect place to stay in Sanur. Nothing is too much for the team: collecting you from the airport, serving fab food and sourcing a fantastic masseur. The grounds are a picture and rooms well-kept with a/c. Bathrooms are clean and spacious. The swimming pool is definitely the place to be! I couldn’t have wished for anywhere better to stay at the end of a long trip.
Recently revisited PONDOK AYU.. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay AGAIN.. IMMACULATE garden n poolside areas.. VERY PEACEFUL and dark in the rooms thru the night making it EXTREMELY easy to sleep... ALL staff members were FRIENDLY N HELPFUL HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
I joined my mother at this B&B 3 days into her 10 day stay. There are only 5 rooms and most of the time the place was full. We were in an upstairs room which catches more of the breeze.The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and well thought out (although for easier access it could be improved with a shower rather than a bath with overhead shower). The staff were wonderful. Breakfast was the same every day.. fruit juice, choice of eggs any style or pancake, toast, tea/coffee and fruit. All very nice. We opted to eat on our balcony but they have a large round table where you can sit with fellow guests. This is also where you can have lunch or dinner. The nearest options for eating out are on the other side of the bypass. There was free transport to anywhere in Sanur and pick up if you gave them a time. There is only one car available during the day but 2 in the evening. On about 4 occasions we had to get a taxi as no car was available. The taxi charges for this were more than we could negotiate for the return trip or with Blue Bird metered taxis. The place is about 700m from the bypass (4 lanes) and about the same again to the beach and beachwalk. If we go back to Bali we would look at staying here again. Thanks for a lovely stay.…
This was a fantastic relaxing holiday. Staff where wonderful. Rooms where clean and spacious. Breakfast was a la carte. No hesitation on recommending this to anyone. pool was sparkling and the free airport transfers where a bonus plus free taxi service to anywhere in Sanur. Rooms where serviced daily and the fridge was icy cold. I will be going back. Also had the pleasure of meeting Barbera the owner who I plan to keep in touch with. I take my hat off to all the staff who made our stay perfect. A huge big thank you to you all. See you next year X
Right from our exit at the Airport terminal we were greeted with in infectious welcoming smile from our host Gede, who was waiting to drive us to Pondok Ayu pointing out many places of interest along the way. On arrival the staff were all waiting to cater to our every need and this service continued for our entire stay. The pool and extremely well maintained gardens were immaculate with the only thing out of place being the frangiapanni flowers that littered the lawn. Our room was well stocked with icy cold bintang and soft drinks. After we had settled in and had a swim and a drink in our lush surroundings we ventured down to the beach again driven by Gede as part of our inclusions in the accomodation. I cant speak highly enough of how well we were looked after by the staff as nothing was too much trouble and the Bali coffee and fully cooked breakfast every morning with freshly prepared fruit was magnificent. Although the property is a 10 to 15 minute walk from the beach it is in a very peaceful area there were plenty of local warung style restaurants and a convenience store only a stones throw away. The Cavern Bar or beatles bar as its known is less than a 2 minute walk away also . Food is available also at Pondok Ayu and the friendly staff were happy to knock up a snack for my son in between meals. The Girls both had a very enjoyable luxury massage during our stay which they both said was amazing. Many thanks to Gede and his wife Made along with their dedicated staff, who made sure that our stay was nothing short of outstanding.…
Stayed for a few days at start of our Bali trip. Super clean, lovely pool, well kept grounds. Lovely breakfast. Location okay, need to cross road to get to the coast (5-8 minute walk). We didn’t get the free shuttle. Service was good but only reactive and a more proactive service would be great (true of a number of places we’ve visited).
What a great little homestay with the most helpful and caring staff. Set in its own courtyard with lovely pool and dining room, the rooms are spacious and super clean. Nothing is too much trouble for the small team of staff. They arranged tours and transport getting good prices for us. Food is really good. Breakfast was always way too much but when it is so good how can you say no? Other tasty meals were available through to the evening. Location looked like it may be a bit away from the beach but it wasn’t a problem. They provide a shuttle service to and from anywhere in Sanur through till late evening. But it’s not far to walk anyway - about 10 minutes that’s all will get you on to the main shopping street. We’ve been trying for some time to go here as they are always popular. So glad we finally made it. Thanks to everyone for a great week.…
We found this small intimate hotel on TripAdvisor, and were persuaded to spent a week in the King Suite because of the great reviews. We were not disappointed! Gede picked us up at the airport and he, Made and the rest of the staff looked after us brilliantly. The rooms surround the pool and are bright and clean. The breakfast choices are numerous and well cooked, and hot and cold snacks are available all day. The mini bar prices are very competitive. The hotel is situated in a residential area and about 20 minute walk to the beach. The only challenge is crossing a busy dual carriageway, but it's much easier after the first time! All in all, we loved Pondok Ayu and would recommend. Mike and Jan
As good as ever. The staff take really good care of you.Enjoyed several massages by the pool.Lovely quiet place to relax and looking forward to going back again soon. Actually enjoyed the walk to the beach each day and getting over the main road is pretty straight forward now.
It's all been said before but that doesn't make it any less true. Fabulous place - an oasis of calm. Wonderful owners and staff - very friendly and very helpful. Good size rooms which were kept spotlessly clean. Do yourselves a favour and go there
