This is a short review on Bali Ayu Hotel & Villas, the place where we stayed on the first 2 nights of our Bali trip last year. Located at Jl. Petitenget, Bali Ayu is of walking distance from Potato Head Beach Club and surrounded by many other restaurants and bars. Very convenient I would say.
Let’s start off with the morning view of the villas. These were taken from our balcony in the morning.
Bali Ayu is made up of a few 2-storey bungalows with wooden interior. Our room was located on the higher floor which gave us a better view of the villas. Moving our luggage upstairs wasn’t a problem as the hotel would send someone to assist. Just make sure to tip them reasonably :)
Refreshing welcome drink upon arrival.
The passage leading to our room was rather dark. I remember Angela accidentally kicked on a cat one night when we came back after dinner. She couldn’t stop crying out of fear! Not sure whether to feel sympathy or laugh as it was rather funny XD
Our bed with a pair of swan towels and rose petals scattered around just as shown in the photos. The room was way bigger than we expected. Love the high ceiling made of cooling wood.
Bath tub – one of the important criterion I seek for when booking a hotel. You never know when you would need a hot bubble bath. But we didn’t manage to use it in the end la since our schedule was quite packed. Teehee.
Our shower was open air concept. Quite intriguing especially in the daytime when the sun shines upon as you shower.
Our room at Bali Ayu does not come with a private pool but the next villa we stayed does (will blog about it next). Used the public pool that night we checked in and fortunately we were the only guests!
Cheap Bintang beer from the mart.
Day bed next to the pool.
Just chilling on the lounge contemplating whether to go for a night swim.
Did I tell you that Bali is a mosquito infested island?? Thank god for repellent spray which was highly effective.
Had a quick dip at the pool before heading back to our room to reenergize for our second day.
Over all it was a pleasant stay. Breakfast was provided at an Australian football bar in front of the hotel with the choice of continental or local food. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. And not to mention, the room was definitely up to standard for the affordable price we paid!
