True Balinese Experience – Ayodya Resort Bali
Experience pure luxury where the royal past maintains its timeless beauty.
I had heard a lot about Ayodya Resort Bali, but this is the first time I have ever stayed at the resort. Set on an incredible 29 acres, the resort’s architecture is reminiscent of a traditional Balinese water palace. Spectacular water features and majestic gardens flow naturally to the private beachfront. The resort is enormous, guaranteeing that you will never be bored during your stay. Whether you just want to rest and relax on a sunbed beside one of the five swimming pools or soak in the sun by the beach, or watch a traditional dance in the open- air theatre or work on some muscles at the well-equipped gym, the choice is yours. Families with children can rest assured that the kids will be well taken care of with a wide range of activities at the Kids Club.
I stayed at The Ayodya Palace, which is a private retreat within the resort featuring 79 suites set near the beach, in a tranquil corner of the resort. This is a true luxury experience with world-class butler service and private check-in. I love the privacy of the Ayodya Palace rooms. And for animal lovers, there is a chance you will spot some exotic animals on the resort grounds, and maybe even a squirrel or two.
My favourite place to chill out while escaping the sun is the Ayodya Palace Lounge. With touches of Balinese luxury, the lounge offers the relaxing and luxurious ambience of ancient Balinese kingdoms, and features a private pool and beach access. Ayodya Palace Lounge is the centre of the royal Balinese treatment that includes breakfast, evening dining, complimentary afternoon tea and evening cocktails, and complimentary snacks and beverages throughout the day, along with a well-stocked library and Wi-Fi.
While in Bali, a spa visit is always highly recommended, especially to the resort’s Mandara Spa. I experienced the Mandara Sampler, which consists of a massage and mini facial. Spa lovers cannot go wrong with a treatment at Mandara Spa. My massage was so exquisite and relaxing that I fell asleep during the treatment, and after my facial, my skin was glowing and radiant.
A stay at Ayodya Palace at Ayodya Resort Bali is a memorable experience, as you immerse yourself in the tranquil environment and soak in the beauty of the Indian Ocean and the serenity of the surroundings.
