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

Dara Ayu Villas would be easy to miss. The eco resort is located in its own stunning valley below the small village of Majangan, a forty minute drive from the cultural hub of Ubud. To say we were pleasantly surprised with Dara Ayu Villas would be an understatement. The staff were very warm and friendly and went out of their... More

We were greeted warmly by the staff upon our arrival at Dara Ayu. The setting is absolutely breathtaking, up a winding road past rural villages and through lush rainforest. Our driver had to stop to ask directions as he had never been there before, we had been told it was not far on from Hanging Gardens and that was helpful... More

So our check in was at 2pm,we arrived at 3pm to find the staff were still unaware that we were coming. We were then told to wait in main lobby so they could make up our room without any apologies.Not only did we have to wait an hour we decided to order lunch while we were waiting but we were... More

We have investigated this review and acknowledge that our internal procedures let us down with respect to the notification to on site staff of the impending arrival of these guests. We sincerely apologise for this. We do not accept however that the site management acted in a rude manner. The guests were offered and accepted a free dinner from the... More

What a beautiful surprise as you wind your way through the lovely tropical garden, over the stepping stones set in the ponds and water features that are the path to the main villa. The view in front of you is spectacular, with a magnificent infinity pool giving way to what feels like your own private valley of rice paddies and... More

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
