Reviewed August 14, 2010

This was our third trip to Bali and again our third time staying at Pondok Ayu. We have 2 young children and were travelling with my sisters family also. We feel very lucky that we have found this little piece of paradise and will continue to come back time and time again.

The service is outstanding, immaculate gardens and pool area, huge comfortable rooms and importantly the beds are so comfortable too. The little details like fresh flowers in the rooms, the beds turned down each night, a welcoming smile and the staff are the friendliest in Bali for sure!

Having young children it is great to have the pool literally at your doorstep so no need to make that trek to the pool each day and have to go back to the room for something that is always forgotten.

We always feel at home here and as others have said it really does feel like family. Gede and Made you do a fabulous job and to Barb and Steve - it's a gem!! Thank you again for a wonderful holiday.

We were amazed by the beauty of Pondok and the amazing staff there. The owners were so welcoming that we almost felt we were part of the family, and it felt that we had known them a long time. Pondok and the staff have something special that makes you feel so welcomed and special. 100% 10 out of 10. I cannot praise the quality of our stay high enough. Thanks to the staff and the Benno's

We enjoyed this hotel travelling with our one year old daughter, a small and peaceful spot out of the way in Sanur, which is what we were after. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always a smiling face which our daughter enjoyed very much.

If it wasn't for this hotel, we wouldn't have enjoyed Sanur as much as we did. We stayed one week in Ubud first and weren't used to all the nagging on the beach and traffic crossing the main road in Sanur.

Wonderful place, thank you for a great holiday!

We stayed at the Pondok Ayu at the end of May / start of June and simply had a great time. The room was very spacious, clean and well fitted. The overall hotel is delightful, and the staff are wonderful.

What can i say that has not already been said!! Pondok Ayu is a beautiful small oasis, we were lucky enough to have the villa which was just amazing. Nothing was to much trouble for Gede and Made, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning.

What a wonderful peaceful place to stay. Home away from home. Gede, Made, Putu and the rest of the staff go out of there way to make your stay as perfect as possible. Having breakfast each morning with other guest was nice because you could talk to each other about the places and things you had done or bought and compare notes.My girlfriend and I had a massage and our nails done in the peace and quiet of the Resort, much more relaxing than down by the beach.I would love to come back with family and friends and book the place out.
