Inside Ayodya Bali’s Kingdom Of Hospitality

June 05, 2017

Ayodya Resort Bali promises to astound any weary traveller – even those who think they’ve seen it all. A majestic façade featuring a beautiful Balinese water garden with carved dragons and statues will impress you as you drive up its grand circular driveway. Inside, it’s a replica of a Balinese water palace, filled with breathtaking stone and wood carvings. The grand lobby extends over a beautifully manicured garden that encircles a large lake before meeting the golden sands of Mengiat Beach, and then the pristine blue of the sea.

Standing on 11.5 acres of land, the Ayodya is a hotel built to honour Balinese culture, history and architecture. There are many positives that come with decades of experience including stellar service, marvelous amenities and that true, authentic and unmatched Balinese experience. Once you escape into this “Kingdom of Hospitality”, it’s easy enough to forget the outside world and all of your troubles. All 537 rooms and suites are gracefully designed to combine classic Balinese touches with modern convenience, and come with fantastic marble-clad bathrooms. It’s all very luxurious and comfortable but the resort was made to be explored; our favourite is the stretch of verdant lawn located between the beach’s golden sands and the Lagoona Restaurant, which serves delicious, mouthwatering delicacies from around the world – a must try is the wood-oven pizza, easily one of the best on the island. Dining here comes with a view; the beach is decorated with strikingly colourful beanbags, umbrellas and flags, creating the perfect backdrop against the clarity of the startling blue sky. Tall trees and palms rustling in the breeze and sounds of the waves create the ideal ambience for an afternoon of relaxation. Don’t miss the sunset, head to the Beach Bar for cocktails, mocktails or jamu and for dinner, try a uniquely different setting by dining on the lawn; with low tables, carpets and pillows under fairy lights against the pink and purple sky. Ayodya has 8 F&B outlets including 5 Restaurants, 3 Bars & Lounge offering a variety of cuisines including the freshest seafood and Balinese delicacies to Japanese and Mediterranean cuisines. Enjoy a cultural dinner with traditional dance performances like the Kecak and Legong Dance at the Balinese Theatre. The Octopus will impress with classic Italian favourites and remarkable interior featuring hardwood and beautiful stained-glass walls. At Genji, it’s all about Japanese favourites; dine teppanyaki style or sit at the sushi bar or the tatami rooms. The Ayodya is also a favourite choice for weddings, with ceremonies on the beach followed by a garden party.

No Balinese holiday is complete with a spa treatment and Ayodya Spa by Mandara offers indulgent body treatments to soothe the body and soul. The little ones can have a smashing good time at the resort’s Camp Ananda, a fully-supervised kids club featuring various programs packed with games and creative activities and those combining work and holiday, there are 14 versatile meeting rooms and remarkable venues by the beach for private functions.
