Ellie's
Ranked #33 of 54 Hotels in Nusa Dua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed at ellies for ten days in early January, and the only way we can describe the place is perfect. Every one of the staff were always happy to see you and help however they could. Not only that, they also took the time to chat to you which made you feel far more at home than one of the faceless 5 star hotels of the Nusa Dua Resort. After a while it felt as though each evening we were coming home to family!
The breakfasts (included with the rooms) were always delicious and served in an open dining area next to the pool. The room was spacious and the air con worked wonders after a hot day spent exploring. There is great cheap food nearby which you can even have delivered to the hotel. Kuta is about 20mins away (although road construction near Kuta at the time increased the journey to about 30mins) and Nusa Dua and Geger Beach are only 10mins, just ask at the front desk and they will call you a cab!
David and Caroline were incredibly helpful, giving great advice on places to go and even arranging a driver for us one day to tour the sights slightly further afield (a must, at only $50 US for the whole day).
Overall our time here has been amazing, and would come back in a heartbeat. If you prefer the friendly, homely feel and want to see what Bali is really like then Ellies is a must!

Stayed at Ellie's from 13-18 Dec 2012.
Very friendly and relax place.
Great staff and David is very knowledgeable of what to do and what to look out for in Bali.
Our room was #105 just above the pool.
The WiFi was weak in the room.
Tip: I found out that by moving my laptop to the window facing the breakfast area; I could get better reception.
On our last day, we had the massage up on the hotel covered rooftop and it was absolutely brilliant.
Oh, by the way there is an entry and exit tax in Indonesia depending on your passport, so make sure you have enough money to pay for your exit.

Absolutely fantastic place that I started to call home after staying for 7 weeks!

David and all the staff at Ellies couldn't be more accommodating, friendly, informative and helpful. From sorting out hire cars, giving endless maps and directions to places I wanted to go, not to mention actually picking me up and dopping me off places at no charge, plus recommending great restaurants to eat and great places to visit off the beaten track, always going beyond the call of duty to make sure my stay was the best it could possibly be. Going to the local market for me so that they could get the best price on the goods I wanted to buy - I could continue!

Ellie's really is brilliant, I spent many an afternoon reading on the roof terrace and watching the sun go down, while soaking up views of the harbour. The whole atmosphere at Ellies is very relaxing, soaking up the sun by the pool, enjoying the very delicious breakfasts! I couldn't fault anything. Great place to meet other travellers too, Ellie's seems to attract very friendly people, never a dull moment.

Will definitely come back when I return to Bali, missing all the staff now I'm back in the UK.

Thanks for everything.

We stayed for 2 nights and just loved it! You have to use taxis everywhere, but you can retreat to Ellie's when the hustle and bustle get to be too much.

Breakfast was great & David was fantastic with organizing little things.

The rooms are spacious and has everything needed. Our bathroom's ceiling had a mouldy spot, and that gave it a bit of a smell - if not for that, would have been a perfect score :)

We stayed at this GEM of a hotel June 12, whilst out one evening, we were unlucky to fall down a hole in the pavement, It was dark and no we weren't drunk :) Anyway we had to contact our holiday insurance to inform them that Niki had to go to the hospital. Dave called them in the UK from his mobile for us, and then took us to the hospital. When we tried to pay him for the call and trip to the hospital, he refused to tell us how much it was or even take anything. He even acted as an translator for us at the hospital. To say he went beyond the call of duty was an understatement.
We wanted to sample Jimbaran beech for the sunset, they told us which restaurant to us and what to say to ensure a discount on the cost of the meal. There recommendation was spot on.
We inquired the other day about a stay next year, and a reply was back within a few hours with confirmation that our room was ready and waiting for us, just let them know our flight details and a car will be there to collect us.
If you are looking for a great little hotel, but cheap, with very helpful staff in Bali, then don't botherwasting you time searching the internet, just click www.ellies_bali.com and you wont go wrong.

Room Tip: Just ask Dave or Caroline.

I don't know where to begin.....
From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome, clean room, comfortable bed and a mini fridge that had a few beers we were able to enjoy and unwind from our 24 hour flight!!
The staff is just amazing, all the reviews are true on this!! I don't know what else I can say but the staff is all genuinely happy to see you, and accommodate you with helping make your holiday a memorable one!!
We stayed at Ellies for 10 nights and yes its not right on the beach but a five minute/$3.00 taxi ride and your at Geger Beach. Not to mention in our opinion the best beaches were the beaches that had no hotels even close by. So for us wanting to explore as much as possible, Ellie's location couldn't of been a better fit for us!
The Free Breakfast is perfect, you get juice, coffee, fresh fruit, toast, choice of pancakes, eggs, french toast, porridge....(yeah and its included with your $40.00 room rate, pretty awesome.)
Ellie's truly is a Gem, it is hard to find places where you get both a chill & quite hotel along with the amazing staff!
David, thank you so much for all of your help from seven months out keeping in touch through email, when I needed advice to arranging our pick up!! We enjoyed our morning chats with ya and all of your recommendations were fabulous!!
We will be back!!

All the best!!
