Utterly Gorgeous- The Stuff of DreamsPosted Mar 16, 2015
Pros: If you need a rest come here, soak up the beauty, it transforms a tired and dusty heart into something fresh again.
Cons: The Spa treatments (massage) were expensive compared to town prices but the setting and convenience of having a massage onsite made up for this
Location: The Resort is a quick 15 mins from the Centre of Ubud . There is a village just outside the resort which makes for a nice walk in the afternoon.
From the moment we arrived through the beautiful long driveway at Ayung Resort until 7 days later when we reluctantly left, we experienced the real magic of Balinese hospitality and open heartedness of the people. The hotel is astonishingly beautiful (so much nicer than the photos). Every aspect of the layout interior and exterior has been thought out with beauty in mind. The landscaping and gardens are fantastic with pagodas set amongst the trees, pathways to meander along, amazing cravings everywhere and the swimming pools are glorious, huge and impeccably clean. In fact everything was meticulously clean. There is a softness in the light as it filters through this luscious jungle and the buildings are set aside in quiet spaces for the ultimate experience of relaxation. Even the buggies that transport the luggage are quiet. Nothing disturbs the peace.The restaurant is set at an elevation that takes advantage of the Ayung River far below. The food is the best I have ever eaten and believe me I have travelled the world, to many different cultures and this chef beats the rest hands down.Each dish was an art form, the food was delicious with a lot of vegetables been sourced locally and organic. We had the honour of meeting the chef and his love and passion for creating masterpieces was palpable. Each meal was a delightful surprise. The breakfast is abundant, the juices are cleansing and the staff were absolutely lovely and could not do enough to make our stay happier.

Ayung Resort helped perfect our Bali experience.Posted Mar 15, 2015
Ayung Resort exceeded our expectation! Our 5 nights stay were so blissful, very large villa with stunning Forrest view. Well trained staffs were so very friendly and caring, fantastic service were subtle and always with a smile. The culinary team were truely world class! We ate in many good restaurant in many big cities in the world, the Ayung team still impressed us, be it breakfast, afternoon tea or dinner, delicious and consistent. Our villa Wibisana was so gorgeous and private, if I come back to Bali in a hurry it is because of Ayung, where we met some guests just spent their days in the resort, chill out and enjoy the silence.

Relaxing but noisyPosted Feb 1, 2015
Pros: The service
Location: White water rafting
The highlight of the Ayung Resort is definitely the service. We stayed in a pool villa which was very nice indeed but becoming a little dated. Villa was secluded but the noise during the day somewhat spoilt this. The white water rafting take off point is a couple of hundred metres upstream so you get the whooping of rafting parties and the opposite side of the steep river valley was in the process of being cleared by chainsaws for more development. After 4 in the afternoon was when you could really relax and enjoy the ambience of this very well cared for establishment.

Perfectly serene spot in UbudPosted Jan 11, 2015
Wonderful stay at the Ayung resort. I don't often review but this place was special and warrants a mention. From the gorgeous setting and extensive grounds, to the wonderfully spacious room with a terrace overlooking the pool and jungle, this hotel was everything we were hoping for and more for our trip. The staff are so helpful and friendly, the breakfast is delicious with the freshest of ingredients helped with the most beautiful view. The early morning yoga was ideal for the start to the day. Little touches like afternoon and yummy chocolates at night were nice bonuses. It was a great base for exploring Central bali and was very close to the river for when we went rafting. The shuttles are not terribly frequent but a taxi to Central Ubud is pretty cheap especially if you are 2 or more. Can't recommend this enough, you will not regret it.

Stunning in every sensePosted Jan 1, 2015
Pros: Loved the gardens and the daily entertainment of watching the monkeys. The food at the restaurant was divine. Villas and pools are very private.
Cons: the villa needs a lounge/sofa for watching TV. The evening shuttle should be free IF guests book in advance.
Location: the shuttle to Ubud takes 25mins. I highly recommend hiring a taxi driver for the day (about $60) and going to the volcano, ricepaddies, temples, mkt
we recently spent 7 days in a Villa. The villa itself and the surrounding jungle and gardens were nothing short of spectacular. The hotel staff were professional, efficient and unobtrusive. I have had the pleasure of eating in many fine dining establishments in Sydney and Melbourne and the restaurant at Ayung surpassed all of those. Our villa was furnished beautifully in Balinese style and the one negative is that it lacked a lounge chair/sofa to sit and watch TV. We had to sit in a straight backed dining chair or on the bed.
