Probably one of the best resort in the area. Very very nice place, big but one can't really feel it because in the middle of a beautiful garden, several restaurants (18 I guess), beautiful pools (1 with salty water), fantastic view of the sea and of the sunset, nice rock bar close to the sea, possibility to have a romantic dinner few meters from the sea, top service. Of course all this have a price, which is high for the area. Location is very quiet, far away from the caos of Legian and Seminyak. One of the best spot for sunset. Highly recommended
"Lock 'em in, drain 'em dry"
Ok. Ayana is undeniably incredible with the most amazing facilities, the fantastic Rock Bar and a whole host of snazzy restaurants and spas to choose from, not to mention the 12 swimming pools. In fact, it has everything on the grounds you could conceivably need and therein lies the problem for me. I didn't really like this sense of being a prisoner within the resort (the reality is you are not but there is not much to see in the immediate area) and I was only there two days. The rooms are nice, the restaurants are good and I totally get this as being a good venue for families in particular. And the Rock Bar is pretty awesome. But for me, it's not what I consider a real experience and was glad that I got to see more of Bali. Ayana really doesn't want you to do that and I'm not crazy about the basic business model. By the way, staff are very nice so, as I say, you will have a comfortable stay here. And kids will love it. Depends on the type of holiday you are after!
The only problem with staying in this hotel is - you will love it so much that you will spend your entire holiday chilling at the hotel and will not feel like you want to explore the rest of Bali hahaha - that's what happened to us when we stayed here on our second visit to Bali. The resort is great, the expansive property is great for evening or even mid-day strolls. The food is good. The Rock Bar is a spectacular place to spend the evenings. Definitely worth the price!
I come with my old friends from China, we stay at 1256 and stay only one night, we enjoy during stay with Ayana Resort and Spa, we have dinner at Damara Restaurant. Everything was good during stay in this resort, but I see a lot of maintenance need to follow up.
"'My Namesake '"
Yes, my name is Ayana, had to experience the Hotel that shared the same unique name. I'm humble and honored, the service was top notch, food and drinks were great, pools were amazing.. Atino who works the front desk along with Eli...total superstars !! ... Ayana is truly beautiful inside out (African meaning), a place of refuge in paradise (Indonesian meaning)... Will be returning
