We stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of December after wanting to stay in a small hotel rather than a big chain. After some research, we found this little gem and had a great time. The booking process was very easy and the rates are very good. The stay started when we were met at the airport by Gede... More

Another enjoyable stay at the Pondok Ayu, the staff make you feel like part of the family. We ended up staying longer than planned due to the ash cloud cancelling flights back to Aus. Gede and staff were very accommodating fitting us in so we didn't have to move hotels and also driving us around. Great family destination in Sanur,... More

Another fabulous stay at Pondok Ayu which has become our usual first stop in Bali. We've only ever stayed in the suite. It's a little more expensive but still good value. Everything is immaculate. It has lots of drawer space in the bedroom and a whole alcove of shelf space, but you need to put your suitcase on the floor... More

We stayed at the Pondok Ayu after being delayed due to the volcano. The rooms are very clean and serviced daily.The staff are fantastic and very helpful. Especially when we had to rush to the airport to catch our recovery flight with not much notice.
