Unless you have been to Bali before I don't think you can appreciate how special a little place like Bali Firefly is. Yes its a bit of a walk from the car to the house- about 5 min if you are slow like me, but Kadek will carry your bags. Yes Ubud markets and shopping/eating district is a bit of... More

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
