As recommended by Lonely Planet
Ellie's Hotel is situated in a quiet residential area a short driving distance from the tourist centre's of Kuta and Seminyak, and a five minute drive from the beautiful Geger Beach in Nusa Dua. For surfing enthusiasts Dreamlands Beach and Uluwatu are both within very easy reach of the hotel.
Ellie's really is a hidden gem, an oasis of calm and relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of daily Balinese life. Set in a beautiful courtyard garden with its own private swimming pool, there are three seaview rooms, two poolside rooms and one hill facing room.
Each room is spacious and beautifully decorated in a contemporary and chic style, and has modern facilities including televisions, DVD players and minibars along with essential air-conditioning. The hotel also has an impressive library of DVDs which guests can borrow and watch in their bedrooms.
The hotel has a small and comfortable covered outdoor restaurant and bar area where breakfast is served and drinks and light snacks can be had throughout the day. There are also two large bright reading and relaxation spaces on the first and second floors of the hotel. The fabulous rooftop terrace offers amazing views of Nusa Dua, the sea and surrounding areas. The roof terrace boasts a small bar where drinks can be served at any time, but undoubtedly the views and atmosphere are best savoured here with a drink at sunset.
Dear Ellie's guests, past, present and future,
At Ellie's we have endeavoured over the past seven year (yes it's been that long) to give our guests the best, friendliest, cheapest and most memorable experience possible, and going by the reviews on Tripadvisor and in our guest book, we have done a pretty good job.
As you may be aware, the Indonesian government has introduced several taxes over the past seven years, and to enable your money to go a bit further, by hook or by crook, we have taken the hit. Unfortunately, the latest tax is a stretch too far.
So that we can maintain the Ellie's standard (and keep Dave and Caroline in Bintangs), it is with a heavy heart that we have to advise you of the following change:
With effect 1st June 2012, any rooms booked will incur an additional tax of 10%. We will not benefit in anyway from this increase, as the whole amount will go to the taxman. Anyone who has already confirmed a booking prior to this date will be exempt to this increase.
Once again we are really sorry to have to do this to our loyal returners and first-timers, but our hands are tied and the last thing we want to do is make your visit anything but great.
Many thanks for your understanding.Mike (Owner Ellies)
We welcome guests from all over the world and feel that the hotel has something to offer people of all ages and cultures and is more than able to meet the needs of the most discerning traveller. Previous guests have included honeymoon couples, business travellers and families as well as individuals looking for a unique and relaxed holiday environment. At times Ellie's has a feel of being a family home with its guests becoming part of that.
Refurbished 18 months ago, Ellie's has gained a fantastic reputation based as much on its style and individuality as its excellent service and value for money. View comments from our guests. The breakfasts here are a highlight for many guests and are included in the daily rate. The staff are truly wonderful and work hard to maintain and improve the standard and service making staying here even more enjoyable.
There is also a hotel car and driver on hand on take guests to and from Kuta, Legian and Seminyak and to beaches in the areas at the same cost of taking a local taxi. The hotel can arrange car and motorbike hire at competitive rates, as well as excellent guided tours to suit guests specific requirements as well as other more strenuous activities such as diving or white-water rafting.
Special rates can be negotiated for travel agents, parties or longer staying guests. Flexibility has been one of the keys to our ongoing success.
Please note: Cash payments must be in US Dollars or local currency. Ellies also accepts credit cards but, regretfully, a 4% service charge will apply.
