Ayodya Resort

Nusa Dua, Bali

The hotel

Your very own Balinese water palace, the exquisite Ayodya Resort Bali sits in 11.5 hectares of glorious gardens, filled with temple-style buildings and reflective lakes, which wind around its swimming pools before flowing down to a beach that’s often scattered with colourful beanbags and fringed Balinese parasols. The interiors are as authentic as the architecture, featuring opulent fabrics, dark woods, and ornamental fretwork. The entertainment continues the theme, with soothing spa treatments competing with weekly dinner shows at the resort’s Balinese Theatre, where mythical and magical dance performances are accompanied by the Gamelan orchestra’s music – and by Indonesian and international buffets (for other meals you have everything from 24-hour international dining to fine Italian, Japanese, and barbecue options). Even little guests get local experiences, with turtle releases and fish feeding in between fun at Camp Ananda and swims in their own children’s pool.

They have the best part of the beach and beautiful foreshore area lit up with fairy lights and a funky DJ most evenings. The buffet breakfast is to die for! If you dare to venture inland about 5 mins walk, you leave the Nusa dua compound and enter "Bali" again, with better prices for beer, water, snacks etc. Read less

I will start with the negatives first: This was our second stay at Ayodya. Unfortunately, on our fourth day, one of their staff was extremely rude during the breakfast service. I went to see the management right after the incident, but the duty manager was not available. I left the message with one of the front desk staff, hopefully she passed this on...although we have not received any apology yet. I was also taken aback by the fact that we mentioned a couple of times before arriving that this trip was to celebrate my parents in law’s 50th anniversary. The hotel did not take note of this and did nothing to surprise them. Before Bali, we did a stop over in KL, where the hotel went above and beyond with nice decorations in the room and a lovely card. Another problem was the gluten-free breakfast option. It is literally 2 toasts and 1 muffin (I have uploaded a photo). This is a ridiculous portion compared to the big selection for guests with no dietary conditions. When we asked for a bit more bread, we had to wait 10 minutes. I guess they have to de-freeze it and heat in the oven? Something to improve, for sure. My husband has many food allergies, and he cannot have any of the other foods, except water melon. Therefore, we expect a better service next time. The positives: The rest of their staff is phenomenal, and so are the facilities. We feel at home in Ayodya. This is why, we will stay again in January despite the lows. Looking forward to our third time here, hopefully we have a better stay. Love the beach facilities, their swimming pools, the food... great place! Read less

The hotel is not kids friendly. Kids club are terrible, no activity, no toys. Cot for babies are not safe. Swimming pool for kids are not shaded. We have to recalculated our bills in restaurants few times. Not recommend for family!!!

September 2019 - unforgettable month for us which is engraved in our hearts and memories forever and ever! We decided to arrange our Wedding Ceremony on the beach at Ayodya Resort Bali. THE BEST CHOICE EVER!!! Our wedding planner, Nadya Prilandari from Ayodya hotel made our Wedding ceremony & stay in this hotel unforgettable, everything was perfectly arranged and coordinated in the best-possible way!!! Nadya provided us with the most excellent service; she thought through all the details, offered us great unexpected upgrades, arranged the best team of professionals (hair & make up artist, photo & videographers, catering, music), decorated wedding venue even more beautifully than on provided pictures, scheduled the Wedding program in the best possible way so than we could enjoy our day & each other! We are thankful to Nadya & whole Ayodya team for their hospitality (they really earn the title of „Kingdom of the Hospitality”) , their kindness, their professionalism, their heartwarming service! We will definitely come to Bali and stay again in Ayodya and recommend to all travellers to stay there as well. It is an amazing typical Balinese hotel with great rooms (we were privileged to stay in upgraded Ayodya Palace Honeymoon Room), huge & very well maintained private area with lake, fontains, tempel, theatre, palms & flower garden, super nice & delicious restaurants (we definitely recommend Romantic Dinner on the beach), pools, lounge areas, entertainment programs, and many many many more… We have got the most romantic and energising vibes during our stay. Once a fan - always a fan! See you on one of our anniversaries , dear Nadya & Ayodya Team in Bali! Read less
