“Perfection for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in July again. Kids want to go back to their home in Bali. As always it was fantastic. Staff are always friendly and we miss the club sandwiches by the pool. Thê rooms are large and clean. The food at hotel yummy. We will always call Pondok our Bali home

We recently stayed at Pondok Ayu for 10 nights, wow what a place.
Gede and Made and all the staff were superb, nothing was too much trouble. Gede took us on several trips and as I had recently had a operation on my foot prior to going to Bali, he was so considerate allowing for this wherever we went, so that I did not have to walk far. Thank you Gede. This place is so relaxing and all the staff so friendly and helpful. Had great massages by the pool by Adi and Nwyan (not sure about spelling! sorry), wanted to bring them home with me! Fabulous place, sorry to leave - we will be back again. Thank you once again everyone for making our stay so pleasurable.

This place is truly amazing and restored our views on Bali as a holiday destination. Having previously stayed at Kuta many years ago, Sanur was a peaceful relaxing contrast with all the fine eateries, markets and boutiques just a stone throw away. Pondok Ayu is a small boutique hotel that cannot be compared to any other. The personalised fine touches of Pondok sets this hotel apart from others. Not wanting to mention names for fear of leaving anyone out, the staff were beautiful. We were sad to leave as we left feeling as though we were leaving family. All guests we met during our stay had stayed there many times over many years and also shared a special connection with staff. Thank you Barb and Steve for organising this truly beautiful experience. Sad to farewell but look forward to a return soon. Deb & Matt x

Room Tip: Large suite great for small family or book whole facility for family celebration

We had the most wonderful week away here, so relaxing and rejuvenating. The staff were friendly, professional and very accommodating. We all loved the home cooked breakfast each day and dinner at the fabulous Beno's Restaurant on the water. The hotel room and resort grounds are beautifully clean & taken care of and daily massages by the pool topped the whole experience off! We have re-booked again for next year. Can’t go wrong!

It's taken a long year for me to write this review but my fond memories of Pondok and it's staff are still as vivid as if I were there yesterday.

We were collected in a lovely clean car by the always smiling and helpful Gede. Driven (not like a crazed man) to our little slice of heaven. Pondok is gorgeous! So appealing the moment you reach the end of the drive way. The gates open and you breathe a sigh of relief. Cool drinks were offered as soon as we arrived which were appreciated. Banana pancakes are now a fav of mine and I personally enjoyed chatting with other guests at the breakfast table. The rooms were clean, well decorated and provided all the room we needed.

Deli across the road, The Beatles Cavan Club as well! A short stroll to the beach once you've played "frogga" with the main road and within 20 minutes you're sitting down for a meal. I loved my trip and will return booking the larger suite with my children.

Book a stay here and you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Thank you to all the staff and to Barbara for having such a wonderful slice of heaven offered to us, you made a wonderful stay even better :)

Nice resort, small intimate and comfortable. It's the sort of resort that you stay at while you enjoy things off the resort. A drawback is the busy four lane road to cross to get to shopping and restaurants. The communal dining was okay, but if you don't feel like conversation it was a bit hard as we were all seated at the one big round table. The staff were excellent, helpful, friendly and caring. It's not a flash big resort but the price is very reasonable. It is located in a residential spot of Sanur, away from the main accommodation area. Beaches are a fair way away - walking briskly about 20 minutes and you do have to negotiate the main road. Other than the swimming pool there are no attractions at Pondok. You will need to have plenty of reading material and things to do off the resort.

We have just had 10 relaxing days here - lovely hotel and great, friendly staff. The hotel is not in the main Sanur area but if you don't like walking Gede will give you a free ride to the shops, beach and restaurants. If he is not available it's only a 20,000 Rp ($2) taxi ride. We met several interesting guests during our stay from Italy, Russia, Germany and Australia - there were many chats over a leisurely breakfast. A great place to stay.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are great and the suite is fantastic!

Pondok Ayu is a little piece of heaven located in beautiful Sanur, Bali. We are a small boutique hotel that provides very personalised service by our wonderful friendly staff.
