We stayed at Pondok Ayu for 9 days. It started with Gede picking us up at the airport with a smile and a friendly welcome, which continued through to the welcome we received when arriving at Pondok Ayu from the other staff.

Pondok Ayu is a small 5 roomed hotel with the pool as it's central focus. The grounds are extremely well kept as is the pool. Our room was large, light and airy and was very clean and well presented. The air conditioning was also nice and cool

As pointed out when booking Pondok Ayu, it is away from Sanur beach and you do need to cross a busy road to get to the beach should you choose to walk. We walked to Sanur beach every day and had Ketut drive us there when we went out for dinner. When Ketut dropped us we would organise a time and place to pick us up from and he would be there on time every time. Ketut was also my guru for learning Indonesian. . The pick up drop off service is offered as part of our stay.at Pondok Ayu.

The hotel is located at the end of a very well kept lane with a minimart close by. We didn't have an issue with the location as the pool, gardens and room are so relaxing. All of the Pondok Ayu staff are fantastic and very friendly. Breakfast is freshly cooked while you wait and, should you choose to eat during the day / evening there is a well priced select menu which is also freshly cooked.

We had a really relaxing stay here and really enjoyed it. We are already looking at booking next year. Thank you to everyone at Pondak Ayu for making our stay so pleasant.

Room tip: All rooms overlook the pool. They have an amazing king suite but all rooms are light, airy and very clean

First visited Pondok Ayu as a couple 3 years ago. Loved it so much we came back this year and booked all 5 rooms for a 10 day family holiday. Gede, Made and the team are the friendliest of hosts and make you feel most welcome. Their desire to make your stay enjoyable shines through every day. We organised several sightseeing trips through Gede, some at very short notice, but he always managed to meet our requirements.
A small boutique property that can mix it with the best. None of our family wanted to
leave after our 10 day stay. Great value and highly recommended.

The rooms are very spacious, spotless and comfortable. Good selection at breakfast and for poolside food which was thoroughly enjoyed. Staff are very personable and go the extra mile and it is very handy to get a lift from Gede to places in the local area. Beach is around 15 minutes away (more of a 'locals' beach, less touristy) and near to some small restaurants. Main part of Sanur is a few minutes away by car. Overall a great place to relax and very good value.

This hotel is brilliant, the staff are so friendly it feels like you are staying in their home! The 5 rooms all look onto the pool, and breakfast is served at one table which actually made it a nice social event. The food is made to order and is delicious. The room was the best kept we have stayed in, in Bali. Gede will pick you up and drop you off wherever you please, and if he can't the hotel will pay for your taxi! Pondok Ayu, is just fantastic in every way.

We only stayed one night here before we flew out the next day but we will stay here again when we are passing through. Not on a Main Street but that’s what is nice. Ten minute walk to beach and markets, five mins to lots of good food. Very Accommodating and friendly, clean rooms, and delicious breakfast. They even let us keep our bags at the property a little later than check out until we went to the airport. Affordable mini bar, bike hire, and nice pool area cap it off. Very, very nice place. Thank you!
