“Gorgeous villas...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

From our pickup @ the airport to the moment we left we loved the whole Ajanta experience. The villas are safe,beautiful,located in a handy location close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We had villa C which we adored. The breakfast each day was delicious and prepared in front of you by the smiling, friendly staff. The outdoor kitchen,lounge and dining were practical and perfect.The bedroom beautifully airconditioned with a comfy lounge area, bathroom / dressing room spacious, outdoor shower just lovely.Eliane was fantastic to correspond with, and all the staff couldn't have been kinder...a wonderful experience...looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: Villa C is so private and lovely.Great for couples.

From the moment we checked in we were made to feel very comfortable at Ajanta. We were put in Villa I, a two storey villa, easily big enough for our family of 5. Our kids quickly worked out that the DVD in their room didnt work, and it was obvious the construction workers next door could easily overlook our pool. The DVD was fixed straight away, and the next day the construction workers built a big screen to give us our privacy - much faster than I had expected. Nothing was a hassle for the staff, I thought the easy access to bikes and the shuttle was great, and Sanur is a great base for exploring up the east coast. The villas were very luxurious, the food in both the street cafe and the beach cafe was great, and a fantastic little warung "Little Bird" is just across the street. I would certainly stay here again.

Ajanta is in a beautiful area of Sanur. Easy hassle free walk to beach & seaside restaurant.
All Villas are very private.
We had beautiful outdoor pagoda with kitchen, dining & lounge. Our bedrooms contained huge bed, lounge & tv.
Bathrooms were large with lovely outdoor shower.
Each villa had own private pool, which was so lovely.
Eliane & the staff were extremely helpful & always so happy.
Certainly will be returning.
Staying here at Ajanta has made me fall in love with Bali again!

Wow what can I say, other than do yourself a favor and check into these villas. We have visited Bali numerous times and nothing so far has come close to the hospitality and friendly atmosphere we recently experienced at the Ajanta. Nothing, nothing, nothing was to difficult for the tremendous staff, they treated us like VIPs from the very moment we arrived right up until we departed, the experience was wonderful. We stayed in Villa I which was a very large elevated villa with two bedrooms and an exceptional pool. Breakfast in the mornings was huge that held us over until the evening meal, with the aid of a coffee and the nibbles that came with the free afternoon cock tails. Ajanta is certainly on the list of most favorite places we have ever stayed.

Room Tip: Villa I is a huge elevated villa probably not suited to small children due to the stair case. Famili...

Family of 6 loved this villa. We stayed in a two story private pool villa - villa J. It was huge. Very large indoor living area which suited us with a two year old as it provided protection from the pool. We previously stayed at Ellora but living area open air to the pool. Well equipped kitchen. Tv with surround sound downstairs, large dining table and toilet downstairs plus outdoor shower. Stairs had a stair gate (on request). Two huge bedrooms upstairs each with own very very large bathrooms including spa bath and a nice balcony overlooking the gardens and a glimpse of the water. Outside nice sun lounge area around the pool which was sufficiently large plus fantastic day bed under cover at the rear of the garden. Totally private. Very close to sanur beach. Back gate way only about 50 meters from our villa with locked gate opening up into the Sindhi beach market. Have to walk through market to get to beach but the sellers get used to you after a few days and if you politely say no they will leave you alone. Very easy walk to all the main restaurants including Beach Cafe which is owned by the villa property and has great international dining right on the beach. You get 10 percent discount and you can sign back to your room. Out the front their are sun lounges for use by guests only. Street cafe is at front of property and you can get in Vila room service at very good value. We have stayed in Sanur many times and this is our top pick. We loved Ellora but this is closer to the beach and felt more like a home.

Room Tip: Villa j was great for families with young kids as you can close the doors you can protect kids from...

Great place to stay with lovely settings, good location, friendly staff, very well maintained and clean. Private pool within the villa was the highlight of our trip. We had high expectations on this place (based on the earlier reviews) and it lived up to it. Being in the main street of Sanur, it is walkable to shopping areas and beach.

Every morning we were woken up to a sumptuous breakfast (made in front of you) of our choice. Rooms were made (sheets & towels were replaced) every time we left the room for a stroll or an outing.

Though a bit far away from the beach, a short walk though market will take you to the Sanur beach. (as mentioned in earlier reviewers the shopkeepers try to get you into their shops, but a 'No, thank you' is good enough to have get out of your way).

The private pool was the highlight and we spent countless hours under the sun & moon. Overall it was an excellent stay.

What a fantastic thing to come home to,a cool dip in a private pool, no matter what adventure you've been having out and about in Bali. The Ajanta Villas capture the essence of everything Balinese - tranquil, luxurious, natural, open and yet entirely private. We would have stayed here longer if only we'd known about them before. The location is also very good, easy to walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping and a range of excursion options. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome.

Room Tip: They're all beautiful but have different lay outs so you can just ask to see a couple of options...
