The location in the middle of the jungle up on the hill is great with awesome views. The resort grounds are absolutely amazing with butterflies, little ponds, statues, waterfalls... We loved it!!! The main pool was definitely the highlight and makes some very awesome photos. We also absolutely loved our Balinese style villa with all the amazing decorations and beautiful... More

Great place to come back to after spending the days exploring. It was a real treat to come back & relax by the pool, with a cold drink and tasty food. Somewhere to retreat to, away from the busy feel of Ubud. Staff are friendly & helpful. If you're looking for adventure activities - try Graha Adventure Rafting or climb... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your Dara Ayu experience.

We loved our stay here. Beautiful and peaceful. The view is spectacular. We also did a cooking course which was fun and delicious. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend for couples and honeymooners. It is a long way from ubud and not easy to find so utilising their pick up service is a good idea.

Amazing hotel with great views and friendly staff. Their driver was very friendly picking us up from Ubud and showing some nice places on the way. The pool is amazing but the water is a bit cold, not an issue though.
