We've been to Bali about ten times, and usually stay in villas around Ubud, but have stayed in losmen years ago, to beach hotels and most in between. Dara Ayu is easily the nicest luxury place we've been there. It's a bit remote, be prepared for that, and in Bali you are close to nature, so expect bugs, lizards etc.... More

My partner and I had the fortune of finding this little gem a few weeks ago and stayed for 2 blissful days. Its easy to get lost in time here as the view is one of the most incredible we've seen here in Bali. It's the stuff that movies are made from - cascading paddy fields running down a beautiful...

Dara Ayu is a rare gem set in the lush jungle over looking rice fields in a setting which reminds me of what bali used to be like 15 years ago. The views would have to be some of the best the island has to offer. The villas are still relatively new (5 years old) and the staff are very... More

I booked randomly a room in UBUD and after a 15 min trip from Ubud I've arrived in this amazing place. I couldn't believe it... I have been welcomed brilliantly by the staff and the owner of the property and felt home straight away. The resort got different villa on the property so you are feeling peace at all time.... More

I retreated myself at Dara Ayu Villas outside Ubud and all I can say is that this place takes you back into the real essence and spirituality of Bali. It's a fair way out of town, but once you find it, you will never forget it! Nestled between the forests and rice terraces, it's a paradise on earth! The villas... More

Breathtaking! Speechless! Definitely a great place for honeymoons! Not a place for young children, elderly or disabled because of all the rocks/stones you may have to walk on to get to your room. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy peace and quiet..THIS is where you belong! If you are more of a busy city person,... More

A hidden gem resort. Not suitable for the old and the very young....a lot of walking on big stones with water around. The place is high enough to be cooling...and keep most mosquitoes away... Not much villas available and so keep the resort quite exclusive. I took the 2 bedroom villas with pool. Totally enjoyed the cold weather, nice view... More

One of the places we wanted to take our prewedding photos at. Thankfully the fields were green and not so muddy in early July. We booked a two room villa, and the rooms were out of my expectations. I had expected a gate to the villas and normal indoor toilets, but the design of the villas was so close to... More

If you want to feel like you have escaped from the world to a beautiful, tranquil paradise but still be a short drive from everything you need then I suggest you come here. You can't not relax in this place......the villa's, the staff, the views.......everything you need to have a perfect holiday. On arrival we were greeted at reception by... More
