We thoroughly enjoyed a fortnight's holiday at Ann Donnan's guesthouse, pondok Ibu Anna, just outside Ubud. We stayed in the traditionally-built Villa, one of three lodgings on the site, with all it's amenities and delicious breakfasts, surrounded by a beautifully garden, isolated pavilion and fish pond. The staff, Kadek and Iluh, were competent and so polite and charming to talk... More

If you ever get a chance to go to Bali stay with Ibu Anna at her Pondok and Kunang-Kunang Guesthouse in Penestenan. It was wonderful. The location was great. Located deep in the ricefields of a very small village near Ubud. The people though, made the adventure. Ibu Anna, Yandira, Kadek and Iluh made our stay most relaxing, exciting, and... More

We have just returned from a two week stay at Kunang Kunang Guesthouse, there were three of us, my wife Alice, our friend Kay and myself. It was the most relaxing, exciting and enjoyable experience all rolled into one holiday. Ann and her staff, Kadek, Made and others were superb in offering attentive personal but not intrusive service, and Yandira... More

There have been many changes in Ubud since Eat, Pray, Love advertised its unique charms to the world, and the neighborhood around Ibu Anna's in Penestanan Kaja has been rapidly growing around it. Anna has been there for 10 years and, though her place is well maintained, and has a lovely mature garden, it is overpriced compared to the spacious... More

My partner and I stayed for a week in the Joglo. Arriving late at night, we weren't quite sure where we were and whether we'd made the right choice to be a bit out of town. But we fell in love the next day when we saw the gardens, the views ... and had our first delicious breakfast in the... More

My wife and I stayed with Anna in May, 2012, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. Firefly turned out to be simply amazing - the accomodations, location, breakfast in the morning, the staff, and Anna herself were all simply spot on for a relaxing and peaceful getaway. This was our first trip to Bali, but Anna's quick... More

We stayed for a week, and had the fortunate opportunity, to meet ibu anna, who was very kind and invited us to join her in her activities. Also the staff, yandira and kadek are two very friendly and helpful people. Only disadvantage would be the distance to ubud, but with our motorbikes no problem at all. All in all very... More

We found out about Kunang-Kunang Guesthouse by very fortunate accident while having lunch one day in Candi Dasa at the same time Ann was there with some guests. We have only stayed twice but have visited about 5 times. Ann is so lovely and knows so much about all sorts of things! The gardens are absolutely beautiful, I could walk... More

How pleased we were to be staying her rahter than central Ubud, which we didn't like at all. Ann, who owns the place is a real character - an Australian who spends half her year here, living in one of the three houses within the grounds, and the other half in Australia. We were lucky enough to meet her just... More
