This was a place we had admired for a long time but never stayed before. We have now and absolutely loved the place – it is just so beautiful! Take one step from the chaos that is Poppies 1 through the door into the hotel grounds and the transformation is immediate and incredible.

Peace and tranquillity everywhere and it is impossible not to relax.

Getting there - the hotel offer free of charge collection (or drop-off) from the airport which is a really nice touch.

Other than that, it is such a well established place every driver will know where it is. We discovered the Grab app while we were here and used that. It is cheap, reliable and efficient.

Location – excellent.

As I’ve mentioned, you are right on poppies lane one with all the entertainment that brings! Great bars and restaurants, convenience stores and about a 10 minute walk down to the beach.

The location really couldn’t be better.

Cottages – the first thing that hits you is the privacy.

Each one is like a little house with its own garden and beautiful veranda. We used the last named lots and spent many happy hours out on the morning and evening just relaxing. It has comfortable furniture, fan and thoughtfully coils for mosquitoes. By the way, to say this is such a garden based accommodation we got very little trouble with insects.

Inside the bungalow is very well designed and comfortable indeed. A TV along with a fridge, dressing gown‘s and a very comfortable bed which we slept very well indeed. There is a ceiling fan and fairly decent air-conditioning.

The outdoor bathroom is beautiful and has a net so no wildlife can't join you! The shower doubles as a bath and it is all done out in a beautiful Balinese style.

Wi-Fi – free for unlimited devices and runs at about 20 GB.

As someone mentioned, to have your individual hotspot you need to put the television on but we managed to pick up all the routers around the property easily as well. No need for constant logging in and it reaches all areas including the pool.

Pool – must be one of the most beautiful areas of its type we’ve ever been to.

Again, done in the local style it is absolutely beautiful and full of character. At times we were the only people using it so none of the selfish sunbed hogging here.

Staff – they simply could not do enough for you.

From the moment you walk into the property to when you leave they are unobtrusive but more than happy to help you when needed. Nothing is too much trouble and whatever you need will be provided with a big smile.

Food – we were in a room only so can’t comment on the breakfast. As I mentioned, there are shops everywhere so you can easily buy your own. As an indication of what a wonderful place it is we used to wake up two flasks of fresh water and complimentary bananas provided.

A small indicator of just what a superb place it is.

The biggest satisfaction any Management team can hope for, is when guests notice and actually refer to so many of the little things they’ve all been working on for many years. Thank you! Thank you for staying with us, and thank you for taking so much of your time to set down such a magnificent appraisal of Poppies, for others to benefit from. Especially as we face a very uncertain immediate future complicated by COVID-19...

Poppies always feels like we are coming home from the moment we enter the foyer. Yet again it did not disappoint. The staff are second to none when it comes to customer service and the cottages, pool and gardens are just beautiful. Yes we will be back again next year. I think it will be visit number 12! Don't knock Kuta until you have stayed at Poppies!!!

I only stayed here one night while passing through Kuta but would 100% stay again. The rooms, gardens, and pool are beautiful and the location is great. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby and only 15 mins to the airport depending on traffic. Friendly staff and good food and service at the restaurant.

This place was a real find!! immaculately manicured gardens, tropical swimming pool and adorable rooms, our bathroom came with its own temple. The rooms were bright and well designed with everything you needed and more. This little paradise is camouflaged in the centre of the town, minutes from the beach. I believe they have their own restaurant, but we were only there for 1 night, so missed out on that. The free ride to the airport was greatly appreciated.

If you are going to visit Kuta however also want to experience a traditional Balinese hotel then Poppies is your No1 and only choice!!

What can I say about this amazing place other than it’s an oasis in the middle of a busy busy tourist town!
There’s no fancy entrance, blink and you will walk past the 3 foot wooden door in the wall of Poppies Lane 1. Don’t worry about a fancy entrance as this is the start of what makes Poppies Cottages so special!

Poppies 1 is a busy busy narrow lane with scooters and people walking up and down between Kuta Beach Walk and Legian Street, the lane has loads of bars and restaurants, shops and market stalls however when you step through that tiny door in the wall it’s like you have stepped from 1 World to another!!! You find yourself in the most beautiful and quiet Balinese garden, gone is the hustle and bustle, the noise and the modern life!

The reception is a small area that’s well equipped to leave your bags if your cottage is not ready and they even have safety deposit boxes to leave your valuables. The amazing staff welcome you with a drink and a smile and you instantly feel your in the Real Bali!
The walk to your cottage is one you want to take your time, taking in the amazing surroundings and appreciating the quiet. As you walk to your cottage it’s along a narrow brick path that weaves it’s way through lush gardens with small streams and ponds of Koi fish. It’s even more beautiful at night with it’s discreet lighting leading the way along the paths! The path weaves it’s way round and into one of only 20 Private Cottages which makes your cottage feel even more private than it already is!!

The beautiful cottage has its own outside seating area where a MUST is breakfast delivered to your cottage! You enter the cottage through the wooden door and into the most amazing open ceiling room with a beautiful large bed, seating area, fridge, TV, WiFi, safety deposit box, cupboard space and music player!!! Now I read people said there was a Smell in the rooms and I agree however it’s a pleasant smell of the natural thatch roof however you only seem to notice it the first time you walk in and after that it just become part of the room! The aircon in the room works fine, just make sure you always close the bathroom door as here is the amazing part.... the bathroom is outside!!!! Don’t worry though as all the utility’s are under the thatch roof part however walk beyond that onto the white gravel and look up and it’s just a mesh screen between you and the sky!! Very private and very secure so don’t worry!! The bathroom is lovely marble with a sunken bath shower area, the one tiny and only criticism (which I have read the hotel addressing and explaining other reviews) is the water temp and pressure. They have lovely drench shower heads however sadly the water pressure is very poor and at best the water is only Luke warm. We 100% accepted this as the hotel has been there for years and before anything else was built in the area so upgrading this must and will be a difficult job.

The pool area at poppies is just beautiful and swimming in that pool every day was amazing! The lagoon pool just made you want to swim and admire such beautiful surroundings! It’s a small area for lounging however most of the day we had it to ourselves with not another soul about!

Breakfast is amazing with the choice to eat a poppies restaurant across the lane from 8am or have a pre ordered breakfast delivered to your room any time you choose from 7:30, just remember to put your card on your door before you go to bed.
If you want my advice have it delivered!

Don’t hesitate to book poppies, you won’t be dissapointed! Free pick up and drop off at the airport is also a very nice addition to your stay.

Thank you for an amazing stay in cottage 25!

Never cold, but always refreshing. We have made it our habit to end every trip to Bali with a stay at Poppies. We don't like Kuta, but Poppies gives you immediate access to all the Kuta shopping , pubs and restaurants without compromising the quality of your stay.
