What a great place to spend my first night in Bali! I flew in a day early for a retreat and needed a place for just one night so I picked Pondok Naya based on price and proximity to the retreat center. I ended up being blown away by the beautiful villa and outstanding service. The staff communicated very clearly and proactively and were extremely helpful when I arrived exhausted after 21 hours on two different flights.
The villa was spectacular! Spotless, comfortable, well appointed with a private pool, outdoor bath with a huge soaking tub, full kitchen (which I didn't use but would have appreciated had I stayed longer) and relatively quiet thanks to being well off the main road. I ordered breakfast in the morning before leaving and the food was great as well.
Having fallen in love with Bali I'm sure I'll be returning regularly, and Pondok will be my first choice to stay for sure!
