I first tried booking into Poppies cottages 5 years ago after reading great reviews, well after trying to book for two other trips after that and actually doing a visit to check them out I finally managed to get a booking in July for my GF and I.
After staying at Poppies I understand why it is so very popular, it is simply superb, it is not for those who want swim up bars and party time, it is for those who want to relax in a beautiful place. It is quiet, private and tranquil, surrounded by magnificent gardens, yet located in the very popular and busy area of Kuta with many restaurants and nightspots really close.
I feel the prices have risen above the average since I first tried booking 5 years ago....... what a bargain it would have been then because it is still good value now, not sure if breakfast was ever included in the price previously however it is not now so ensure you budget a little extra....in saying that so many fantastic restaurants close by including Poppies own, which was again fantastic, also complimentary tea and fruit is delivered to the room every morning.
The staff at the cottages and the restaurant were very friendly and helpful as is normal at near all places in Bali, was really happy with the room service, prices for drinks were even cheaper than at the mini markets...delivered within minutes :-).
I found that everything about the cottages and surrounds has been thought out well, the rooms are great and just loved the garden bathroom, the pool was excellent too, clean and again well thought out.
Ok, just to throw in a little gripe for gripes sake, the bed could have been a little softer.
On that note though I can only say that if this place disappoints anyone then they should have a serious look at themselves, lol.
