“wonderfull small hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Once again stayed with all our friends at aquaria, there was a time I would not go to the same place twice that was before aquaria. This hotel just draws you back time after time. Can't wait till my next visit Thanks to all the staff who make you feel very special. Jeni it's your staff and your hotel that are special. see you all soon irene and dennis perth australia

Room Tip: All rooms good but if you want more privacy choose an ocean view room

Surprising, simple, calm and beautiful small hotel, with a sea fronting onto a peaceful lagoon which has some nice corals and fish so snorkelling kit is worthwhile. Each room is different, with nice and unusual decor and comfortable beds. Lots of plants and beautiful small pool with restaurant opening up to the pool and sea view. It's especially pretty at night when it's lit up. Everything is really carefully thought through, and comes with an ethical approach including taking on local trainees and supporting the community here. Great little restaurant too, and good value for money.

Recently stayed at the aquaria with my best friend for an extended weekend trip to Bali. We upgraded from our online booking to an ocean view room and it was completely worth it. The views are beautiful and you are right on the water.

The service at the hotel was top notch! Very attentive. Loved having the option of eating meals on our terrace instead of at the restaurant. Ate breakfast facing the ocean both mornings. The staff gets to know your name and are very friendly. My friend and I were even walking in the city past the hotel owners restaurant, Refresh, and a worker that also works at the hotel recognized us and addressed us by name in the town and asked how our stay I'm the city was. It is that extra attention from the staff that makes the hotel worth the stay.

Easy to get to the small town with shops and easy to hire a taxi for tours for the day. The hotel staff will even help you set up taxis and tours. The hotel also has a spa, which we didn't have time to try, but it seemed that people enjoyed it.

Finally, the food was good. We had dinner included in our package. We on,y ate at the hotel one night because there were so many great options in the town to eat.

Room Tip: Ocean view room is a must!!

We stayed for 4 Nights in Aquaria and we really enjoyed every second. During our 4 weeks trip Aquaria was one of our absolute favourite hotels. The staff was friendly and always helpful, the breakfast was delicious, the rooms and facilities charming with a very own touch of balinese style. Overall it was a delightful place to stay and we would love to come back.

So much thought has gone into every aspect of the running of Aquaria.

There are extra towels on the floor of the bathroom to keep your feet dry, there is a fridge in the room but it's quiet (so no need to turn it off and flood the room, as we accidentally did somewhere else in Bali!), there is drinking water in the room to save on plastic bottles, bamboo towel stands in the bathroom are a nice touch.

We moved here from Sea Breeze, which was lovely but didn't have a tenth of the character of Aquaria.

There are 2 things that happened that really made our time there stand out. After the first night we found the bed too soft and asked if we could move to another room with a firmer bed. They moved a mattress from another room so we didn't have to move. While we we talking about the bed we mentioned that it was our first wedding anniversary that day...upon returning to our room we found petals and a lovely "happy anniversary" message on our bed. A nice touch and really thoughtful.

The second thing that happened was around the big religious festival in Bugbug (the next town over). We wanted to go and see what the fuss was about. Not only did Jeni and her team ensure I was dressed appropriately, but they drove us the 5Km there and even picked us back up again when it rained and was called off. All this for no extra charge.

I could go on but I think you should experience it for your self!

We had a wonderful time at Aquaria in July this year. The atmosphere is wonderful and provides a sanctuary which helps guests to completely relax and unwind. The food is amazing, 4 different menus ! And such variety and fantastic flavours. The staff are wonderful, very attentive and friendly and Jenny the owner makes you feel very welcome. The views from the ocean front rooms are wonderful, the pool is great and so are the on site massages... I would definitely recommend Aquaria to anyone looking for a great retreat !
