The location in the middle of the jungle up on the hill is great with awesome views. The resort grounds are absolutely amazing with butterflies, little ponds, statues, waterfalls... We loved it!!! The main pool was definitely the highlight and makes some very awesome photos. We also absolutely loved our Balinese style villa with all the amazing decorations and beautiful... More

Great place to come back to after spending the days exploring. It was a real treat to come back & relax by the pool, with a cold drink and tasty food. Somewhere to retreat to, away from the busy feel of Ubud. Staff are friendly & helpful. If you're looking for adventure activities - try Graha Adventure Rafting or climb... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your Dara Ayu experience. The Mt Batur trek, whitewater rafting and local village trekking with our staff are continuing to grow in popularity and make relaxing around pool afterwards very enjoyable!

We loved our stay here. Beautiful and peaceful. The view is spectacular. We also did a cooking course which was fun and delicious. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend for couples and honeymooners. It is a long way from ubud and not easy to find so utilising their pick up service is a good idea.

Amazing hotel with great views and friendly staff. Their driver was very friendly picking us up from Ubud and showing some nice places on the way. The pool is amazing but the water is a bit cold, not an issue though.

We really appreciated our stay at Dara Ayu. The staff is kindly and helpful. The house with the infinity pool is absolutely wonderful! The rooms are confortable and fully furnished.

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay. Our pool is fed from pure spring water in the valley below and can be bracing at times however we are disappointed there seems to have been a malfunction with the hot water in your unit. The heating units will all be tested this week to fix any deficiencies. More

It is a bit of a ride from Denpasar airport (even from Ubud - app.30 minutes), but even after a 15-hour flight it is soooooooo worth it!!

Idillyc location for honeymooners + famillies who are looking for great views from every room and privacy as well because there are only 4 rooms and 4 cottages, the main terraces are great for breakfast and bbq beside the borderless sw.pool & green surroundings.

Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your honeymoon experience.

Best to get a car pick up from the airport and then rent a motor bike to explore the area independently, even though property offers complimentary drop off in Ubud. Friendly staff and wonderful views in total privacy (private villa) away from daily stress. Fantastic hotel complex that brings you immediately in a relaxing mode.

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Dara Ayu. Motorbike hire is a good option( we can arrange) for those wishing to explore independently but resting up at Dara Ayu with the occasional shuttle to Ubud or a day trip car hire works well also. More
