We recently had the pleasure of staying 12-nights at Pondok Ayu, Sanur in Bali.
It is without doubt one of the best hotel stays my wife and I have enjoyed across the planet!!
More like visiting and staying with a friend in their home, we were made to feel very welcome from the moment we were picked up at the airport - and the ever smiling and happy, Gede there to great us and transfer to Pondok Ayu.
With only 5-rooms, the hotel is a very relaxed style and the location could not be better - no passing traffic; an easy and pleasant 10-minute walk to the beach and always the option for a car transfer by Gede or the team, if required.
The staff provided the best breakfast options every morning and welcomed us with those ever smiling faces and pleasant conversation.
Lunch - if we stayed in - was a great selection - as was dinner - and the ever present "what can we do to please?" a real joy to experience!!
I hesitate to go on - bookings I understand are starting to be a year out or more - but suffice to say, with over 30-years of corporate travel across the globe, I now consider Pondok Ayu the best hotel to relax in, of any I have stayed in - PERFECT IN EVERY SENSE!!
A big thank you to all the staff - Maureen and Gordon look forward to visiting with "our family" again, soon!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Pondok Ayu can be booked on a room by room basis or you can book the entire hotel for a group or family holiday, this can be done direct with us or through a travel agent. We are surrounded by splendid gardens and a wonderful peaceful setting. As we fell in love with Bali many years ago I am sure you will do the same thing with Pondok Ayu and the atmosphere here. Sanur is in a very good position as it is at the start to most of your tours and central to Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua and Denpasar. ... more less
