We stayed at Dara Ayu villas in February. Our taxi driver told us that he knew where the villa was but then promptly got very lost. Probably easier to tell your driver that this property is close to Hanging Gardens. The property is located high on the mountain and nights are decidedly chilly so it pays to bring something warm...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The buildings are architecturally designed, only 4 years old and really classy. The natural setting surrounding the buildings is truly divine and the buildings maximise on the gorgeous view. The photos do not come close to showing just how beautiful everything is. It was such a lovely setting we didn't want to... More

Dara ayu is definitely set up in a scenic spot and the overall look is beautiful. Also, the staff present is most friendly, helpful and always smilling... But the goodness of the place ends here. One likes to be in nature... But it is slightly different when the nature comes into your room. We had booked a villa and a... More

Clearly Mr Akshay did not have an enjoyable time at Dara Ayu and we regret that. We are the owners/investors of Dara Ayu Villas & Spa and contrary to his note, we have no problems with the management of the villas – Mr Akshay was liasing with the property management General Manager. We always strive to make Dara Ayu a... More

I had a great time at Dara Ayu, the staff were wonderful and the team co-ordinator, Adi is extremely hospitable and helpful. The villa is situated a little out of the way but if you rent a motor bike, transport is not an issue at all. I have to say, the pictures on the website do not do them justice... More

Dara Ayu embodies the peace, tranquility and sanctuary of the Balinese mountains. Well away from the hussle and bussle of Ubud this property provides a little bit of luxury with a lot of heart and soul. The team at Dara Ayu went out of their way to make my stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Set amoungst beautiful winding... More

Passing through the wooden gates at the entrance to this property is to leave the busy bustling Bali behind and to enter another world. There is a long path winding down the beatifully landscaped hillside to the main building, and while negotiating the stepping stones, every sense is engaged . An impression of moving from the material world to a... More

If you are searching for a place that provides serenity and tranquility, Dara Ayu is the place to be. Located far away from the hectic city nothing can go wrong. Upon arrival we were surprised to see the location of the villa and I was preparing for the worst. However when we get to our rooms I was stunned by... More

We had our 3 best days at Dara Ayu! We travelled all Bali with 3 children (6, 8 and 10) and they also loved the stay. The staff is really helpful, not in a way that they try to sell you all kinds of stuff, but they just want to make you feel that Dara Ayu is all about your... More

I spent a week in Dara Ayu villas this year and all I can say about it is that it's just paradise! It was probably the most relaxing place I've ever stayed. The views are just breathtaking and every morning I woke up I was just thinking 'wow'. I just couldn't get over how beautiful the place was. The rooms... More
