Pondok Ayu has to be the most lovely hotel ive ever stayed in, the hotel itself only had a few rooms which makes it much more personal, and the pool and garden were just beautiful.
For the value the rooms are just awsome! they are huge and have everything you could possibly need, the manager of the hotel Gede and his family live on site and the most friendly family you could meet, they went out of their way to make our stay amazing and gede provided transport into and back from sanur at any time.
Sanur itself is packed with beachside restaurants, serving beautiful food and many allowing you to sit on the sand at a price u would pay for a takeaway in the uk!! Its a much quieter than bustling kuta but still has plenty to offer, we really enjoyed the orchid garden and we also met some friendly fishermen who took us out on their boat to do some snorkelling (would recommend you let them take u out because we tried to swim out ourselves and the tide dragged us out to sea!!)
Breakfast allowed us to mingle with other guests of all different nationalities, it was lovely and was cooked to order on site by the managers family.
We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you to the owner and gede and his family for a wonderful stay.
