You'll be right in the middle of the rajah's water garden if you stay at tirta ayu. The staff is lovely, the rooms are beautiful with a great outdoor bathroom and the location feels like a dream. Wake up early to see the garden at sunrise or take a stroll at night in the moonlight.

Called in on a tour of the Bali east coast and fell in love with this extensive and magnificent garden that is hidden behind an unassuming gate and a small market. We dined at the best table in the in the restaurant overlooking the temple grounds - beautiful ponds, towers and fountains with many exotic plants that are so lovingly... More

We did not manage to get a seat near the railings facing the fountain at first because we did not make a reservation. However, when there was a table available, the waiter very kindly offered the table for us, which provided a nice view. The staffs were friendly and polite and frequently checked with us if everything is okay. Would... More

Couldn't fault this place. It was stunning. To wake up and look at the water palace while having breakfast was just incredible. The staff couldn't be more helpful. The accommodation was fantastic, spacious and unique. It was secluded and perfect for a romantic getaway. It was so reasonably priced. We had an absolutely unforgettable experience and I would definitely go... More

A very romantic and beautiful place which is actually a pAlace! The hotel is inside the water palace of Tirtagangga, and staying there is a unique experience. Everything was beautiful and comfortable, and you do feel like you're in a fairy tale. Dinner and breakfast were very good, and the staff was very friendly and attentive.

We couldn't resist to have a lunch here during our visit of Tirtagangga Water Palace. All tables with the view on the fountains were already taken (the restaurant is really small) so we opted for the one in the garden, and it happened to be an excellent choice. It the garden there are only 3 tables what guarantee a quite... More

We stayed here for one night and were fortunate to stay in Villa Raja, the king's apartment! It was beautifully equipped with a lovely bathroom with sunken bath and an amazing front door! Service was excellent, especially in the restaurant where we ate lunch, breakfast and dinner. Lovely small pool in the hotel grounds and by staying overnight, you get... More

We were in the Tirta Gangga and didn't plan to go into a restaurant. But the view from inside is great and to escape the heat with a milkshake and an ice cream this is the right choice. Ofcourse you pay more than in a warung down the street but it is reasonable for what you get here. You could... More

I've stayed here several times, and in the area many times since 1984. It is one of the few completely unspoiled parts of Bali. (The last time I stayed it was for about 7 days and I met 8 other foreign tourists.) The Tirtagangga area is spectacularly beautiful and surprisingly centrally located for exploring the central parts of the island.... More
