More about Besakih Beach

Love the pool here

by goldcoaster about Besakih Beach Resort

We checked in and had a lovely time. The rooms in the main part of the hotel are nice, all with a porch on the lower floor or balcony on the upper. The bathrooms are more than adequate.

The staff are very friendly and Ricky the manager is a gem. The hotel has the best positioned pool in Sanur. It is right on the beach footpath and it is a top spot to watch all the activities happen around you.

The restaurant is right next to the pool so it is easy to get some food and a drink brought to you while you cool off.

A very well priced hotel for a beach front location.

Here we are in Besakih....

by Tetreus

Here we are in Besakih. Besakih is a sanctuary, a large complex situated on the slopes of Gunung Agung, the Peak of Bali, 1,000 meters above sea level (within the territory of Karangasem). It is easily reachable by car from Klungkung by way of Selat. Besaki was a worshipping place for the princes of Bali.


The temple of Besakih

by Pierre_Rouss

I had the odd, very special chance to drop by THE week of celebration at the temple of Besakih (happens every 2-3 years). It was like a huge pelgrinage.

by aussiejen about TINA'S SHOP

While you're wandering along the beachfront at Sanur, make sure you stop for a look at Tina's Shop. She is next to The Besakih Hotel. She's not pushy like a lot of the other people hanging around the beach who want to drag you off to their shops. She will either try to sell you something or offer to give you a massage. She's lovely, but do remember to bargain with her. Tina has a lot of sarongs, dresses, skirts, pants or evn men's shirts. She also has kites that her son makes.

Bali 2004

by goldcoaster

Despite the hoopla over the bombing, I found Bali to be an great destination. Sanur was very quiet and beautiful. The beach is protected by a coral reef that offers good snorkelling. The 10 000ft Mt Agung volcano overlooks the beach. Colourful fishing boats dot the beach and can be hired for sailing adventures around the reef or even to take you to Nusa Lembongan.

We stayed at the Besakih Beach Resort which is right on the beach. It has one of the best pools in Sanur and allows great people watching while drinking a Bintang. The rooms are clean and spacious enough for a holiday. The resort is close to everything with a nice restaurant right on the beach.

Food is still cheap and plentiful. This beautiful dish of delights including chap cay, satay, nasi goreng and gado gado cost $3 AUD. Bali is still a cheap place to survive if you need to.

Besakih and Gunung Kawi Monument

by Lisza

I have asked a driver about some sights there which I am interested to visit.
Is it true that there is a long walk between the Besakih and Gunung Kawi Monuments and their respective car parks?

Or is the driver just trying to deter us from going there and follow his itineraries instead?

Anyone can advise? I am travelling with a toddler and 2 elderly folks(60+). Thanks!

RE: Besakih and Gunung Kawi Monument

by nospam

The Gunung Kawi monuments, according to my guidebook, are on the outskirts of Tampaksiring. Check out this awesome map link of Bali which shows the Besakih Temple (so beautiful) within reasonable driving distance to Tampaksiring.

Hope this helps, have a great time

RE: Besakih and Gunung Kawi Monument

by baliaddict

To get to Tempaksiring you will need a driver. From Ubud you can catch 2 buses. Gunung Kawi is there. Not sure how far Besikah is but it's not in walking distance as I stayed there and didn't see it.
The elderly people wouldn't want to walk far after visiting Gunung Kawi as that's a walk in itself.

Itinerary for Sighseeing: Kuta, Ubid, Besakih

by LeoMi

Hi, all,
I will stay at Bali 7 days, and would like to visit all the sights. I am not so interested in diving.
What is the best itinerary, when using public transportation (bemos, rikschaws)?
The first two days I will stay in Kuta and will visit Denpasar on a day trip. Then I move to Ubud, and am going to visit all the main temples and sights on the day trips. I want to see Besakih, Gunung Kawi, Tenganan, Pura Jagaraga, Pura Kehen(Bangli), and all main temples.
Is it possible to visit all the sights from Ubud on day trips, using only bemos and buses?
Is it good idea to stay 5 days in Ubud and see everything by day trips from Ubud? Or it is better to move to yet another point?



Re: Itinerary for Sighseeing: Kuta, Ubid, Besakih

by cadzand

We did it all in one week with a tour operator starting from Sanur.
It must be doable with a bemo or a local taxi.
Have a look at my travelogue
Enjoy Bali

Re: Re: Itinerary for Sighseeing: Kuta, Ubid, Besakih

by LeoMi

Thank you very much.
I wonder - How long is it to drive from Sanur to Besakikh, or to Ubud let say?
It looks like it can be a long travel (1-2 hours one way).


Re: Re: Itinerary for Sighseeing: Kuta, Ubid, Besakih

by cadzand

Hi Leo,

I don't quite remember how many time it took us to reach f.e. Besakih, as we made stops en route for taking pictures. Let's say Sanur - Ubud less than 1 h. and Sanur-Besakih +- 2 h depends on traffic and ceromonies on your road.

You did not say when you are going, and I have only just spotted your post.

Please have a look at our company website -

Need help in choosing a hotel

by joscadi

Hey guys

I will be in Bali, sad to say, for only two days. I am at the tail end of a bsiness trip/friend's wedding. I will be there in the latter part of December, around 21-23, but not quite sure of the date yet. I am looking for a hotel and these are my criteria:

1) Must be in Nusa Dua or Tanjung Benoa
2) Must be small to medium size - none of these resort type hotels like Nikko
3) Beach front property
4) Cost - about US$50 to US$100 per night.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Re: Need help in choosing a hotel

by goldcoaster

Rather than Nusa Dua or Tandjung, go up the road a little to Sanur and it gives a better range of options but still very close to ND. Try Besakih Beach Resort a nice beach front with all the facilities and a good price. There are many hotels in that area to choose from but this one is my pick for the price.

Re: Need help in choosing a hotel

by ameliamisia

U can try Peninsula hotel.. i stayed there last year.. the beach was nice:)

Re: Need help in choosing a hotel

by Mark_Holiday

You need either go on line and book via the net, but better still, go to the front desks and bargain. I once bargained the Hyatt down to $40.00 net for 2 pax w/ breakfast included.
