Checked in as solo traveler, this small and quiet resort is suitable for couples or solo traveler. Nearby Ku De Ta club. Helpful front desk. Clean room and clean hotel. Wifi coverage all over the resort. But sad breakfast. Can improve on this.

We came here to relax our last days before we left the country: great choice. The room was huge and private, so no noise complaints. The pool was great, so we didn't have to leave the resort, although we did, ofcourse, to go shopping! Shopping here was not great, but the location of the resort was in the middle of a busy shopping street with many restaurants so that was nice. Breakfast was okay and at night the restaurant was good! All in all, great last few days.

Right in the heart of seminyak. Clean simple and affective. We had an extremely large bungalow which would be great for families. Pool is clean and large. Staff helpful when asked. Included breakfast does the job. Wifi wifi and tv in rooms. It's simple it's Bali and would stay again

Make no mistake, this is a bufget price hotel, so right off the cuff, it is good value for money...

Yup, it's a bit tired, and it really needs someone with cash to give it a makeover as it has great bones..

Gardens and pool are great. Bed was nasty, I think it had been left out on the road for a week to be run over by trucks, but they did replace straight away...The question is, WHY use such a tired old bed, THROW IT OUT!

The food was terrible. The coffee terrible...The tables in the "restaurant" would flip up if u leaned on them. Seriously the staff heard/saw the table flipping every day, but did nothing to fix it... The free breakfast, don't bother - horrible.

Firstly, the location of Ananda is simply the best. Yes, it is a ten minute walk to the beach, but as soon as you walk out you are spoiled for eating choices. And that is where you want to be! The resort is surrounded by boutiques, conveniences stores, pharmacies, and best of all amazing restaurants. Only a few minutes by taxi to Kuta, Jalan Petitenget, etc. And the pool is so good you don't want to go to the beach!

For those people who are complaining about the breakfast, they are simply whinging. Yes it is basic, but you cannot get better value for the location you are staying in. For the low price we paid, I was surprised to even get breakfast at all! Often we would go across the road in the early morning to Cafe Bali or similar and eat a proper breakfast for $10 AUD, then utilise the hotel included breakfast as a late morning snack.

As for facilities, they are great. I have stayed in 5 star resorts in Thailand, Mexico, etc. and they were very similar to '3 star' at Ananda. The Balinese style decor and feel is combined with a modern marble bathroom, and with plenty of space. Rooms were made up nicely and promptly every day. The air con and wifi worked well throughout our 7 day trip. The whole resort is quiet and tranquil with lush grounds. And I can't believe I have previously paid $30 AUD for a transfer, Ananda's transfer is only $10 AUD, which was organised for me straight away upon booking. Couldn't be simpler.

The staff are extremely friendly, always saying hello and good bye with a smile on their face. We witnessed some other tourists being very demanding and quite rude to the reception staff, and they handled it very well. The staff were always accommodating with our requests.

I simply did not find any negative aspects about the Ananda resort!

The only suggestions I would have for Ananda is some music playing on low by the pool - I know that this is a subjective preference for people, but it definitely gets people by the pool bar and creates a holiday ambience. And perhaps the unused room by the pool could be used as a buffet breakfast area, with an option for guests to upgrade their price for a better breakfast. Or my boyfriend and I imagined that room as a great area for games such as pool or air hockey.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the resort, or a self contained bungalow.

Stayed in room 322 for a week and were pleasantly surprised by the resort. Although a bit tired, the resort is built in the beautiful Balinese style. The room was huge and staff very friendly and extremely helpfull. The resort has a nice pool area and beautiful gardens full of tropical flowers. The resort is right in the middle of busy Seminyak but as soon as you walk into the resort it's really quiet and relaxing.
The resort is much cheaper than other hotels in the area, so very good value.
