“Charming with children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is for any families who might be put off staying at Poppies by the previous post. We've stayed at Poppies Cottages three times as the rooms are sized and are one of the few hotels that will accommodate a family of four in one room without paying for an oversized family room. Like all the wonderful Balinese the Poppies staff enjoy children, there's Barong, Doggy Doggy and the cat to play with and the cottages and gardens are all fun and exciting for children. There were many other families there when we have been there and perhaps if it's a child free hotel you need there are hotels like this in Bali. All the other previous comments are valid, Poppies is a magical place to stay and children love it.

Room Tip: If you can get the room with the hidden path and direct access to the pool, sorry I don't rememb...

Ok Kuta is not for everyone, it's brash & loud. Poppies Cottages amazingly feels like it's in Ubud, tucked away & quiet. The rooms are traditional but comfortable. Everyone morning they bring you a flask of hot tea & bananas..so quaint. Breakfast can be ordered. The Staff are kind. Lovely pool. One problem I had was there was a family staying there with two young loud annoying kids. They would dominate the pool shouting & jumping in & destroying the peach & tranquility for the other guests (couples) who want to relax or read. Poppies is not a family resort, it's for quiet guests who want to enjoy & relax on their much-needed vacation. Families please don't be selfish, there are many resorts with full facilities for kids like the Jayakarta hotel, Padm hotel, etc. Perhaps my fault for staying during the Australian school holidays. Leave Poppies for us.

We had a room for 4, one QS and one single with a mattress on the floor for a total of five nights, three at the start and returned for two before leaving for home.

I'd stayed at Poppies previously, some years ago, so was interested in another look. Nothing has changed, still superb in all areas, beautiful gardens, tranquil, superb room and facilities, with a semi outdoor bathroom, and a very nice pool area.

It's not cheap, with no included breakfast, at A$130+ a night for the first three nights, but dropped to A$115.00 on our return, with a change of season, but I guess that's OK for a room for four?

Poppies is an oasis in Kuta, and its reputation is reflected in the occupancy, full for each of our stays.

Poppies scores 9.5/10 using my own points system.

Poppies was highly recommended by a friend, so I was looking forward to my two night stay. Although Kuta is dreadful, the Poppies grounds are beautiful and tranquil. The pool is an oasis of calm, and the property is well located. However, my room was awful - located at the corner of the property, it was extremely noisy as it was bordered by two streets with noisy cars and scooters whizzing by at all hours of the night. I asked for a room change but they were fully booked. Pack some earplugs if you intend on getting any sleep! Although noisy, the bungalow was spacious and clean.

Room Tip: Whatever you do, don't take the corner bungalow (I think it's no.26). If it's the only...

Thank you for your balanced review. We would just like to correct the Room Tip sentence; it is in fact Room 28 that you stayed in. Room 26 is not disturbed by any noise, and indeed has been recommended in other reviews! Room 28 is the one that can be a bit noisy at night.

I hated Kuta, the city is super busy, taxis keep on harassing you and you fell like a walking wallet as everyone tries to sell you something...

Poppies was the hotel we were staying and I REALLY enjoyed it. The cottages are lovely, lot of space, well isolated you feel like you are somewhere else. The swimming pool is super nice and we had plenty of time to enjoy it, there was never a lot of people and it was really relaxing.

The location is also ideal if you want to be close to the city center and next to the beach (go and enjoy the sunset!)

Finally, the staff was super nice. I forgot something in my room and they directly let me know and kept the item for 5 days. I strongly recommend it!

Once you step inside the door to Poppies cottages from poppies lane, you enter Paradise. The hustle and bustle of the lane disappears into an inviting serene Oasis. The staff are lovely and friendly and cant do enough for you. The gardens are beautiful, as Is the pool area. We stayed in Cottage 21, which was clean, and like our own little getaway from the outside world. Sitting on the porch each morning drinking tea and eating bananas which are left for you each morning, was lovely. Most times we felt like we were the only people there. Papers were left every morning ( in English) and some afternoons as well.
Everything is in within walking distance, money changers, shopping, restaurants & the beach. Poppies restaurant is just a 20 metre walk when you turn right out the door to the lane,
Poppies cottages is now my first choice of places to stay!!

Loved this little resort, tucked away on Poppies Lane 1, so close to all amenities!! Room service was speedy. The pool area and bar was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. They don't offer breakfast in the room rate but you can order through their restaurant Poppies at a very cheap price.
