What could be more impressive than dining in a restaurant overlooking the Raja of Karangasem's immaculate water palace at Tirtagangga. By balinese standards it is not cheap but the menu is varied with dishes from other Indonesian island. I enjoyed a vegetable curry type dish which was supposed to have cassava leaves but they were out so they substituted with... More

quite frankly this is the best room ive ever stayed in. The room was amazing and the water palace is very beautiful. A swim in the water is well worth it, although people will stop and watch you swim so be prepared for an audience! The hotel restaurant was the most expensive during our stay in Bali and by Bali...

This small but well maintained hotel is located right in the middle of the Tirtagangga waterpalace. We stayed here for just one night which is not enough if you want to experience the unique tranquility of Tirta Ayu. The rooms are all free standing and surrounded by a nice small tropical garden. The restaurant looks out over the water palace... More

My partner and I enjoyed a holiday in Bali from 1-16th August 2014. We stayed in Nusa Dua. We came to visit the Tirta Gangga by recommendation on 7th August. Whilst there we stopped by Tirta Ayu and had lunch. The food was first class (can highly recommend the chicken satay and for desert the Dadar - coconut pancakes -... More

The location of this small hotel is nothing but spectacular. The setting is just mesmerizing with all the fountains of the beautiful waterpalace Tirtagangga. The staff is incredibly friendly and they all knew us by name. They have just 5 or 6 bungalows so you really feel special. A nice pool within a lush tropical garden. Our room was beautiful,... More

Every time I come to East Bali a visit to the Tirta Gangga Water Palace, followed by lunch at the Tirta Ayu Restaurant overlooking the water palace is a must. The atmosphere is incredible, the view lovely and the food delish! Definitely recommend this relaxing end to a visit to the beautiful water palace!!

It's simply a great hotel with lovely staff and a very nice restaurant overlooking the water gardens. We had the Pool Villa which was next to the small swimming pool at the rear of the site. I slept like a log! The best part of the hotel is the fact that you can easily swim in the large, spring water... More

As we have enjoyed staying here several times before, we decided to return and have no regrets at all. It was definately to our advantage that we stayed during a quiet time in Bali in February. We booked the Raja room and were not disappointed. The room is exceptionally clean, spacious and cool and the bed was very comfortable. The... More

The site is wonderful, with the water palace, the fresh water pool, and the nice surroundings and landscape. We were impressed by the good service in the hotel and particularly in the restaurant. The hotel is simple, but comfortable and clean.

I spent my first night in Bali in the Tirta Ayu Hotel. This had all been pre-arranged by my travel agent. From the moment I stepped out of the car to the moment I left I can't believe how well I was treated and looked after. The staff could not do enough for me. I was allocated Villa No.1 which... More
