We leave Pondok Ayu tomorrow after a 6 night stay. We can only agree with the other reviewers who rave about this place. The whole place is spotless and maintained to a high standard. There are 2 upstairs rooms, 2 downstairs rooms and a suite. We stayed, on request, in an upstairs room, with a welcome breeze on the spacious... More

Lovely little hotel. Clean, accommodating and relaxing. Felt completely comfortable having staff look after our 16 month old one night, due to the small and friendly nature of the hotel. Rooms are centred around the pool. There is a room for breakfast, but that's it. Although, there is a limited menu, which you can eat by the pool or in... More

Wonderful stay at Pondok Ayu, 'Gede' and staff couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms are excellent. We stayed with our 3 yr old son who had a bed in our spacious room. Pool & gardens where beautifully looked after. Breakfast at the shared table was relaxed and overlooked the pool. We stayed 6 nights and would go back anytime... More

The hotel is great value. Very nice and clean room. Friendly staff, nice pool and garden. The free shuttle service is great. From this point of view we can really recommend the hotel.

We stayed at Pondok Ayu for the second time and really enjoyed our time. The staff are great, we miss them all already. We were lucky enough to stay in the suite this time, which was fantastic and more than big enough for our family. We spent most of our days at the hotel lazing by the pool and utilised... More

visited recently, enjoyed being looked after on Nyepi Day. It absolutely amazes me that an establishment, including the staff, can remain unchanged for over 8 years. 8 years ago, we were blown away by the place and particularly by the staff; Gede. Made, Putuh and the ladies. Your own family could not make you feel more at home with caring,... More
