Great value for moneyPosted Jun 24, 2017
Pros: The ambience and the friendly staff.
Cons: Suggest that hotel provide a hand mower for cutting grass. The whipper snipper disturbed the peace around the pool. Jugs and cups in room are needed.
Location: As above.
My 4th time in Bali and my friend's first. She fell in love with the place. Staff very helpful, even mending friend's sunglasses. We stayed in a villa with a thatched roof, and a small pool outside in a courtyard. After one very heavy downpour of rain we had to wade through water to get to breakfast! The hotel is situated half way between beach and mainstreet which abounds with eateries. Whilst hotel has surf and paddle boards available, down on the beach there are all sorts of water activities available for a price e.g. glass bottomed boat, sailing, parasailing, kite surfing, snorkelling etc. I admire the philosophy of training the Balinese in hospitallity and Bahasa so they can go on to working in big hotels with more opportunities available to them. We are two senior ladies in our 70's.

Good locationPosted Jun 22, 2017
The hotel is in a good location near the beach. The room was a good size and made up daily, but things were tired. Breakfast was boring and I ate at one of the many local cafes.

Hidden gem of peace and tranquilityPosted Mar 15, 2017
Pros: Fab location to beach, yoga, supermarket and good restaurants. Bohemian homely decor in the villa. Awesome king bed. Huge bathroom with big shower.
Location: Power of Now Oasis Yoga, Genius Cafe, Poplars Supermarket, Lilla Pantai further up on the beach - about a 10 minute walk.
Loved this villa - highly recommended to anyone looking for peace and quiet in a great location! Quick and friendly welcome and check in on arrival; gorgeous little villa with king bed and spacious bathroom with magnificent shower (big shower head a dream for those with long thick hair and in need a good wash!). Aircon and wifi all working a treat. Egg station at breakfast was awesome - your eggs are cooked with love. You have the option of using the nearby hotel facilities for food but I loved my omelette at the villa's so there was no need to try anywhere else. Two gorgeous pools to choose from. The villa is in a great location too! Tucked away down a laneway - 2 minute walk to the beach in one direction (and very near Power of Now Oasis Yoga) and 2 minute walk to the main street in the other direction (Poplars supermarket nearby). I am a female solo traveller and felt very safe here (despite the laneway seeming like it might be dodgey - it wasn't). Everyone is friendly except the money changers - watch out for the dodgey dudes - go to official exchanges. This place is excellent value for money and only have high praise! Thank you :-)

Well managed very friendly helpful staff and quietPosted Mar 2, 2017
Pros: See above.
Cons: Maybe advice upfront about the local drinking water situation (not that it was a problem).
They don't pretend to be five stars but offer five star standard in what they have wonderful staff, magic position and beautiful clean and safe environment.

Relaxing and quietPosted Nov 22, 2016
Pros: Friendliness of staff, location and serenity To the left down the lane way you are in the hub of activity with many restaurants, bars and shops
Cons: needs some updating of kitchen,
Location: About 80 meters the right in the lane way is the beach, where you can have a massage on the beach, water sports and stand up paddling, very quiet,
We have just arrived home from Bali, and it's the second time we have stayed at Villa Puri Ayu, the last time was about 6 years ago. The staff were great on our arrival which was a very late flight, and we didn't arrive until around 1am in the morning. Our room was lovely and cool, and exactly what we booked, outdoor bathroom, and kitchen, and secluded garden. The staff are friendly and always smiling. The breakfast was lovely and fresh with fruit, eggs, anyway you like them, toast, cereal, bacon and other varieties including rice and noodles. Room service was prompt, and the dinner was delicious. They are renovating / building, but no noise was ever heard. The only little hick up we had was the kitchen area is very outdated, but that will be sorted. Another bonus was the water dispenser, we was full, and we made ice each day in the excellently cold large fridge. I have no hesitation in staying there again, close to the beach, bars and restaurants, and away from the madness and mayhem

A little run down, OK for short stay onlyPosted Nov 15, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel seen better days, clean but old and things falling apart. Breakfast was ok, front desk staff seemed almost sleepy and slow but did the job on Bali time.

Always happy to stay herePosted Nov 13, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Small hotel with relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. It is also handily located to the beach, restaurants and shops. I have stayed here several times and will return again.
Cons: No problems to mention and I don't know why this section has to be filled in to submit a review.
Location: Bali Stand Up Paddle School is located at the resort so you can pickup your SUP and be out on the water in minutes.

Very pleasant & comfortable.Posted Nov 3, 2016
Pros: Overall good experience. Despite being an older resort and bit careworn, the rooms were very quiet, clean & comfortable. Facilities were good and staff were extremely friendly and efficient...no request was too much trouble. Pools were adequate & clean, with pleasant lounging deck-area. Excellent and varied food was available at the attached restaurant at hard to beat prices.
Cons: Apart from the petty inconvenience of not having a choice of different teas' at the pool-side breakfast buffet, we cannot think of anything significant that would have enhanced our very pleasant stay.
Location: Very close to Sanur Beach & within walking distance of a variety of shops, bars and restaurants for all tastes.
