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

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
