Hello to Rasti and all the lovely staff at Taman Ayu Cottages

This was our 1st stay and most certainly not our last, we spent 10 lovely nts at this quiet out of the way hotel
Taman is full of charactor and warmth to the lovely welcome and Balinese frontage to lush green gardens with fish and Easter Bunnies during the Easter holidays.
Our room was clean and a good size and our bed was VERY comfy we slept well.
The Aircon was great and Tv fine, our fridge was a little old but it worked fine, the bathroom was quirky with plenty of clean towels, sheets and water provided.
We couldn't fault the cleanliness.
The pool was amazing, clean and sparkling, relaxing pool lounges and funky music in the background.
maybe a few more pool towels would be good as we had to use the room towels at times, the gym was well equipted and clean.
The food was excellent and very well priced, as were my FAV Watermelon Juices round the pool.
We couldn't of asked for a better place to stay for the price.....
We will see you all again

Room Tip: We had a superior room facing the garden which was nice, we will like to try the poolside room or ne...

The location is great.. the staff is helpful and speak english.. the restaurant serves good food.. the bar next to the pool is a great plus point.. rooms are a bit old and so are the washrooms.. kinda give an eerie yet old school feel.. The hotel will also arrange for cabs for your sight seeing but do try to re-negotiate the price.. they sometimes do agree.. overall a pleasant experience and that too for a great price.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool facing room if it interests you.. we had a garden facing one.. but that was fine too...

Just about to check out again from Taman Ayu Cottage.

The place is looking better all the time. There appears to be a concerted effort to improve nearly all aspects of this Hotel. And it is working. The Operations Manager (Rasti) personally checks on many of the guests to ensure that they are happy. The restaurant & room service staff are as kind & friendly as ever.

The big green garden is looking wonderful. The garden lighting and pathways have been re-done. The WiFi is working better, and has been 100% reliable with a strong signal.

One of the stand -out improvements has been the newly renovated pool. There are now more sun lounges with a larger pool-side patio. The pool has a great shallow ledge to sit and relax in the water. It is sparkling.

I will be brief, but just wanted to thank all the staff for a lovely stay.

I have stayed many times at the Taman Ayu. This time the pool was being upgraded and is now finished and looks great. Due to this Rasti the wonderful Ops Manager upgraded me to a Super Deluxe room and it was fantastic. The location of this hotel is great and the gardens are beautiful. The staff always make your stay enjoyable so thank you again to Rasti, Ira,Bagus,Medi,Netty and all of the staff.

I look forward to my next visit.
