I first went to Poppies with my parents when I was a toddler; simply put over the years thereafter it never disappointed. I'll admit I have an emotional attachment to this place so that might slant my review but still, in the heart of Kuta, with gorgeous bungalows, an amazing rock and flora pool, exquisite rooms and service and, last but not least, a restful, secluded environment! Add smells, flowers and convenience and in my books that's enough said: a true reference to keep in mind!

No wonder this hotel has so many excellent reviews. I can't fault Poppies at all. My husband and i spent 8 wonderful nights here and we enjoyed every minute of it.Poppies is in a excellant location in the heart of Kuta and within easy walking distance to may good restaraunts,shops and the beach. The cottage we had (26) was lovely, it was kept spotlessly clean was a great size. I slept very well and never heard any noise.The pool is lovely with plenty of sun loungers, most of the time there wasn't many people in it.
What makes Poppies so special is it's wonderful staff, they truly are the nicest people we have met on our trips to Bali. They always said hello and made us feel very welcome.
A special hello to Rico we enjoyed chatting with you,
We always like to try different hotels on each trip to Bali but I will definately be back to Poppies.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

While we were planning our first trip to Bali, my wife and I decided that we were not going to stay in a multi-story, concrete hotel. We found Poppies on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try (there were also a few other interesting places but we needed a place that was near Kuta beach). They were also offering a good price for a 3D/2N package that included roundtrip transfers, a free 1-hour massage and a free dinner.

Our transfer was waiting for us when we arrived so that was a good sign especially after reading about a few horror stories of airport-transfers-gone-bad. I must admit that I started to get worried on the way there because we were going through really small alleys - at one point, right before we entered the resort, our driver had to fold the side mirrors of the vehicle.

Once we got into the resort though, it did not disappoint. It was a really like a secret garden tucked among the sidewalk vendors, the crazy motorcycle drivers and the tourist vibe of Kuta. The cottage was quite spacious as it had a nice terrace where you could have coffee as well as a little nook inside the room where you could sit and lounge around. The room was a bit stuffy when we arrived so we had to keep the ceiling fan running for a while. Maybe the only other thing is that it's difficult to spend a lot of time in the terrace because there were quite a number of mosquitoes. The staff, who were quite helpful during our entire stay, provided a mosquito coil but I didn't want to risk being bitten by daytime mosquitoes.

Overall, Poppies is a great place to stay in for people who want to enjoy Kuta but who want to have an escape from the touristy feel of the place. Just be prepared to walk a bit (and dodge motorcycles) to get to the beach or to Legian Road.

We only had one night at Poppies - a stopover between the airport and catching the boat to Lombok. We were totally delighted with our cottage and wish we could have stayed longer. Once you are behind the wall of the compound you would have no idea you are in the middle of KUTA - it's so quiet and so pretty.

We were pleasantly surprised with a pot if hot tea and some bananas on our balcony when we got up in the morning. A lovely touch.

We will definitely stay at Poppies again.

We first stayed at Poppies in 2010 for our honeymoon and we loved it so much we go back every year for our anniversary. Bungalows are clean and comfortable with icy cold air con and plenty of hot water in the shower. Each room has it's own safe which is great too for peace of mind. The staff are second to none, so friendly and helpful! The room service food is sensational. The grounds are so pretty and well looked after and the huge fence means that you are right in the middle of Kuta but don't notice the noise at all even in the Bungalows close to reception! Staff will transfer you to and from the airport which is wonderful. We will be making our reservations soon to go back next October because to miss out would be a tragedy ... to say we love Poppies isn't even close :)

Room Tip: We stay in Bungalows near the pool - 12 and 17 but any are great as they are all fairly private.

We had an amazing 3 night stay at Poppies. The staff were extremely accomodating and friendly. The villa's are fantastic and the gardens and pool are beautiful. Poppies really is a haven in the craziness of Kuta. Being quite a small resort we found this to be far more personalised than the big hotels in the area and would HIGHLY recommend it! We will most certainly be back :)
