This fantastic hotel is located in the hustle bustle of Kuta, approximately 20 minutes driving from Denpasar International Airport.
Over the past four decades many of the true Bali-philes have made their way to Poppies. Today, despite being a veritable institution, Poppies is still being discovered by those new to the delights of Bali as well as those wishing to escape the glitz and glamour of grandiose hotels.
The simple Balinese exterior of each cottage, with its private garden and breakfast terrace, belies the spacious and well thought out rooms that lie within. The interiors are decorated with colourful Indonesian fabrics, and include a host of thoughtfully provided creature comforts as well as local artefacts and discreet design details.
Adjoining every room is a hidden garden area that conceals a charming bathroom featuring a sunken marble bathtub and shower. Each cottage has either a king size bed or two single beds, to which can be added an extra bed for a third person. Small-sized beds for children, and babycots are also provided.
Poppies Bali offers just twenty luxuriously appointed thatch-roofed cottages that nestle in gardens of hibiscus, scented jasmine, and frangipani. Red brick paths meander past lily ponds, waterfalls, and time-worn stone figures, watched over by the towering palms of an ancient coconut grove.
In a secluded corner of the garden is the swimming pool and jacuzzi area, set amongst natural rocks and cascades, discreet sun-bathing terraces and riotous banks of bougainvillea. Steps lead up to a peaceful reading room, and to the intimate pool bar, a cool escape for drinks or lunch.
