Four years ago we we're lucky enough to book a last minute at Pondok Ayu when we were traveling around Asia. The place was great, so when we decided to go back to Bali for a holiday, Pondok Ayu was at the top of our list! Although we had already seen most of Sanur, and we like to explore, Pondok...

We enjoyed our stay at Pondok Ayu. Our daughter loved the pool and your staff were so lovely with her. It was great to be greeted at the airport and to have a cot set on arrival as it meant one less piece of luggage to carry. Our breakfast were delicious and it was nice to sit over looking the...

Stayed for a week at the beautiful Pondok Ayu. We absolutely loved this place and were sad to leave. The accommodation is spacious and has everything you need. There is a real home from home feeling. The communal meal table is a lovely idea which really works well. The best thing about the Pondok Ayu is the staff who are...

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...

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...

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
