The rooms are large and have everything you need, the pool and gardens are very well kept, clean and maintained. We travelled with our kids and they were made to feel very special and at home. A...

In late August 2016, we had the great opportunity to visit Pondok Ayu in Sanur Bali - but this time with the extended family along - including the 4-grandchildren. Yet again, Made, Putu, Kadek, Wayan, Katut and Gede greeted us warmly and looked after every need for the next 10-days. It felt like returning to the "home of a good...

This was my second stay at Pondok Ayu and it is still a great place to stay. It's small, only 5 rooms, but everything is in tip top condition which is unusual given the climate.

We stayed in Pondok for two nights and three days. It was a very pleasant experience. The place is not a top of the line hotel, but given the price it is more than what you pay for. The best part is that they ensure a complimentary ride to and fro to main street Sanur(the reason why Sanur is a...

as a first timer to Bali I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

Pondok is just one of those special places that you are just so pleased to have booked. Everything was exceptional! From our initial contact with Barb, through to the pick up by Gede. Everything just ran like clockwork, and when we arrived without our luggage (thanks LHR),the staff and other guests could not have been more accommodating. The hotel itself...

After searching for an intimate, Balinese-style hotel to kick start our family holiday in Bali - I feel so blessed to have found Pondok Ayu. My family inc two small kids were welcomed warmly from the first. It's the antithesis of the large resorts - personal, caring and so accommodating. Bonus: the hotel grounds and rooms are beautiful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pondok Ayu is a little piece of heaven located in beautiful Sanur, Bali. We are a small boutique hotel that provides very personalised service by our wonderful friendly staff. Pondok Ayu can be booked on a room by room basis or you can book the entire hotel for a group or family holiday, this can be done direct with us or through a travel agent. We are surrounded by splendid gardens and a wonderful peaceful setting. As we fell in love with Bali many years ago I am sure you will do the same thing with Pondok Ayu and the atmosphere here. Sanur is in a very good position as it is at the start to most of your tours and central to Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua and Denpasar. ... more   less
