We stumbled onto Tirta Ayu whilst looking for a catering company that would service our wedding...and boy was I glad we did! Located up in the hills of Tirtagangga, the Royal Water Palace was like something out of a movie. Ancient, alluring and totally magical. If that wasn't enough, the food at the restaurant was just as memorable if not... More

We kept patting ourselves on the back to find this gorgeous place to stay. We initially stayed two nights but then returned for another two nights. The Villas and Restaurant are situated overlooking the beautiful grounds of the historical Royal Palace. Even though there are many people touring the grounds during the day it is still a peaceful place to... More

We spent the first three nights of our honeymoon here, and it was the perfect spot to chill out and relax after the mayhem of wedding organisation. It's very quiet - often we had the restaurant to ourselves, but that didn't matter because the view out over the water gardens is so spellbinding that a restarant 'buzz' isn't needed to... More

I can still hear the water flowing from the spring, through the many pools of water lilies and koi, down the fountains and out through the rice paddies. I can still hear the birds, and see the butterflies and the faces of the people there. I can feel the sun reflecting off the beautiful pool in front of our villa,... More

This is one of the most beautiful places on earth. As soon as I entered this sacred water palace, with views of the sea and volcanoes I knew I wanted to have my wedding here. I managed to convince my friend and family from all over the world (UK, USA, Malaysia, Switzerland, etc etc) to come to Bali (for their... More

This hotel is located within the beautiful water palace. It is absolutely gorgeous. You should be able to get a room (a nice one) with Aircon for $35. We did not book any hotels online as it was much easier to show up and bargin. Even the walk in rate was only $50 (but we barginned them down). The staff... More

My husband and I have just returned from our annual trip to Bali and for the first time in my life I cannot put into words how we felt about Tirta Ayu. What a wonderful place, beautiful scenery, beautiful people, beautiful food and beautiful accommodation, relaxing and enchanting, yet so much to see and do, a part of Bali we... More
