We have been visiting every couple of years since 2002. Recently stayed for 10 nights. We were very pleased to see the same welcoming and attentive staff and the immaculately maintained property. We also appreciate the car service which drops/picks us up from the beach/restaurants.Thanks to all for another excellent holiday.

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
