Great place to come back to after spending the days exploring. It was a real treat to come back & relax by the pool, with a cold drink and tasty food. Somewhere to retreat to, away from the busy feel of Ubud. Staff are friendly & helpful. If you're looking for adventure activities - try Graha Adventure Rafting or climb...

Thanks for taking the time to review your Dara Ayu experience. The Mt Batur trek, whitewater rafting and local village trekking with our staff are continuing to grow in popularity and make relaxing around pool afterwards very enjoyable! Our staff enjoy the opportunity to show off their villages and the local produce ( fresh coconut juice and other seasonal delights)...

We loved our stay here. Beautiful and peaceful. The view is spectacular. We also did a cooking course which was fun and delicious. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend for couples and honeymooners. It is a long way from ubud and not easy to find so utilising their pick up service is a good idea.

Amazing hotel with great views and friendly staff. Their driver was very friendly picking us up from Ubud and showing some nice places on the way. The pool is amazing but the water is a bit cold, not an issue though.

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay. Our staff are nearly all locals and take great pride in showing our guests local points of interest and taking guests to meet their families!

We really appreciated our stay at Dara Ayu. The staff is kindly and helpful. The house with the infinity pool is absolutely wonderful! The rooms are confortable and fully furnished. The exterior bathroom with the breathtaking view is an asset. It is just a pity that the water (pool + bath) was cold. Please note that Ubud is quite far...

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay. Our pool is fed from pure spring water in the valley below and can be bracing at times however we are disappointed there seems to have been a malfunction with the hot water in your unit. The heating units will all be tested this week to fix any deficiencies.

It is a bit of a ride from Denpasar airport (even from Ubud - app.30 minutes), but even after a 15-hour flight it is soooooooo worth it!! We arrived late at night and were the only guests, but staff was at our disposal from the minute we walked in. Ready to whip up a quick meal and to make us...

Idillyc location for honeymooners + famillies who are looking for great views from every room and privacy as well because there are only 4 rooms and 4 cottages, the main terraces are great for breakfast and bbq beside the borderless sw.pool & green surroundings.

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and pictures online don't do it justice. This place is absolutely stunning and very surreal. I can't believe we were able to stay like king an queen for the duration we were there. The staff is super friendly and greeted us with a cup of tea and Balinese snack upon arrival....

Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your honeymoon experience. We often get comments that the photos do not do justice to the beauty of Dara Ayu and are always looking for more posts of guests photos. Please come back for any anniversary/birthday or other occasion you may want to celebrate in our piece of paradise.

Best to get a car pick up from the airport and then rent a motor bike to explore the area independently, even though property offers complimentary drop off in Ubud. Friendly staff and wonderful views in total privacy (private villa) away from daily stress. Fantastic hotel complex that brings you immediately in a relaxing mode.

Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Dara Ayu. Motorbike hire is a good option( we can arrange) for those wishing to explore independently but resting up at Dara Ayu with the occasional shuttle to Ubud or a day trip car hire works well also.

Dara Ayu Villa was recommended to me by a friend. After looking at her photos, we decided to give it a try. Once we got there, we were mesmerized by the view and location Dara Ayu has to offer. Love it!!!!
