I visited here in October 2014 - it was a beautiful place, clean and well designed with a wonderful breakfast and lovely staff - so helpful! The grounds were perfectly kept with lots of flowers and a nice pool. It is truly a sanctuary from all the craziness of Denpasar. In fact, you feel a world away from all the... More

The staff at Pondok Ayu are incredible. They're friendly and helpful, their driver picked us up from the airport and made arriving into Bali a breeze. They took us straight to our room, which was clean and beautiful. Everything we needed they were happy to assist. Even made breakfast super early for us so we could eat before going diving... More

Well it's New Years Eve here in Bali and we are sitting here on the balcony at Pondoc Ayu, away from all the caos and yet we can see fireworks in all directions. We come up to our timeshare in Tanjung Benoa each year and often stay an extra week and always look for somewhere different. As i have been... More

My family (two children and husband) and I just came back from a ten day holiday in Bali and the best thing about our stay was this hotel. It is small and cosy, the rooms are comfortable, the grounds are wonderful, the place is very clean and very well maintained, the breakfast was yummy. Still, the best thing about Pondok... More

Again what can we say, nothing but thank you. We pride our place of business and look forward to a great year ahead in 2015. Pondok will be closed from end January till end off February for renovations and that is why Pondok still looks the same as it did 14yrs ago. Regards, All staff at Pondok Ayu More

My husband and I stayed at Pondok for 2 weeks this December. We found this little gem on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. While it is not on the beach they arrange to drive you there or you can walk which is about 15 minutes. After a day out and going back to the hotel it is so peaceful.... More

This place really is a hidden gem. With only five rooms you don't feel like your in a crowded hotel somewhere. Grounds are kept very well and the pool is great size. The staff are so friendly and nothing is to hard for them. I was a bit worried about the location of this place, being tucked away and also... More

A different experience of Sanur, on "the other side of the Bypass", away from the more touristy "beach side" of Sanur. Pondok Ayu is beautiful, quality and comfortable accommodation. They provide a simple, very adequate breakfast around a large single round table for guests where guests gather and start the day. It has very friendly and helpful staff and we... More

We have stayed at Pondok Ayu multiple times and again it has not disappointed. Staff with their smiles wider than the driveway are like family to us as I am sure they are to many visitors. The grounds and surrounds are well kept, each staff member doing their part to ensure our stay is comfortable. My only hesitation in writing... More
