Sari Villa, Sanur Beach: Peaceful and close to beach and shops
After travelling around north Bali and Lombok for three weeks, I again decided to spend my last night in Indonesia in Sanur to do some last minute shopping.
Sari Villa is centrally located just off Jalan Danau Tamblingan in Sanur. There is easy access to the beach, just 5 minutes walk to Hardy's Supermarket and close to many good restaurants.
Rooms are very well maintained with the bottom floor rooms having their own small, private courtyard.
There is a small pool and pleasant sitting area although this can be crowded if all rooms are occupied.
Very friendly staff. Recommended for medium budget travellers. Price in July 2014 was $45 a night.

Inna Grand Sanur Beach Hotel: Has it's own beach
I wonder why booking thru internet we are given bigger room and was charged higher. The garden wing room we were given is so big. Maybe the hotel is near the seaside, the sea wind has made the room floor ( not carpeted ) sticky and salty, a uncomfortable feeling if walk barefoot.
It is quite a distance for some guest who are given remoted rooms, we experience that.
We swam, but the pools was rather noisy as many guests used the pools at the same time and some are over excited.
The hotel is on a big piece of land with its own beach extend from north to south. The hotel has 3 swimming pools, a few reataurant and the Sanur Golf is nearby. It is the biggest and among the earliest hotel in Bali.

Puri Santrian: Private beach
The hotel has its own stretch of private beach. Here you'll find a seating area to have a meal, sunbeds and two floating pavilions.

Puri Santrian Hotel: Peaceful beach hotel
The hotel is at the southern end of Sanur beach. Rooms are dotted around the hotel grounds among the vegetation. All the usual dining and leisure activities are found here. The staff were very friendly and helpful, this made for a relaxing stay.
Immediately outside the hotel are two ATM's, while along the main road next to the hotel are many shops, bars and restaurants. Eating out here was a lot cheaper than at the hotel.
The peaceful location and friendly staff meant I had an enjoyable stress free holiday here.

Puri Kelapa Garden Cottages, Sanur: Frogs in the pond
Puri Kelapa Garden Cottages is located just 5 minutes walk from the beach and just 50 meters from the northern end of Jalan Danau Tamblingan, the main street running through Sanur, so very close to shops and restaurants. The cottages are set in a well kept garden with a good sized pool. Small ponds are full of frogs - beautiful songsters in the evening. There is a restaurant that has very reasonably priced, good quality meals at the front of the hotel - breakfast is not included in the price of the rooms. I stayed for 2 weeks while I was doing a language course in Denpasar so I got a reduced rate. I was disappointed that I had to argue to get a TV in my room - normally not something I care about but I wanted to be able to listen to the evening news in Indonesian while I was studying the langauge. I can say I was satisfied with my stay overall - but only because it was a much reduced price. The price currently quoted on the website is not value for money - so more expensive than average for the service and facilities provided. Note also that large tour groups often book the bulk of the rooms and service priority seems to be given to them.
Overall disappointing although the food at the restaurant was very good and staff at the restaurant (not reception) were very friendly and very helpful.

Villa Shanti Beach Hotel: Great Place on the Beach!
I found the Villa Shanti on www.indo.com. It was one of the cheaper hotels right on the beach at $40 USD per night. If you book directly with the hotel, the price is $50 USD per night. I thought it was a really good deal, even more so once I got there. The hotel is located right on the beach and has it's own swimming pool. In the center of the hotel is a lush tropical garden complete with statues and fountains. Each room has a patio with some lounge chairs that look out onto the garden. All rooms are within 50 feet of the beach. The hotel offers towel service and has lounge chairs on the beach that you can use.
The staff was extremely helpful they arranged drivers to and from the airport, and hired cars for the day to explore the island. The restaurant staff was also very helpful. During breakfast they have people playng traditional Balinese music.
My only complaint was through indo.com they include a continental breakfast. The breakfast was a little sparse. It included a glass of juice, tea/coffee, toast and a few pieces of fruit. You can always order more food or a hot meal at an extra charge.

Villa Majapahit: Under the Coconut Trees
A bit off in seclusion from Sanur,
in a bricked wall maze of 4 private villas,
you will find Villa Majapahit in front of
the sea on the east coast of Bali.
If you seek seclusion,
this can be a choice to consider.
A great spot for a romantic get away!!
Two of the villas are sea front
and the two others are in the back,
but have access to the beach.
The villas offer 24 hours hotel service,
along with DVD players, stereo system,
bathrobes, a kitchen, Jacuzzi, swimming pool, etc.
The two sea front villas that I saw,
also had a bale which is used as a spa.
Meals can be served on the deck facing the sea.
If you don’t mind being
a distant away from most everything,
this villa can be considered because of
the good workmanship that they were constructed in,
and those beautiful sunrises to be seen under the coconut trees.
P.S. Please make sure to turn off
some of the lights when you go to bed at night.
They use extensive electricty in the lighting at this villa,
and Bali is having a serious electrical shortage.

BUMI AYU BUNGALOWS: Hidden Gem in Sanur
We were pleasantly surprised with our stay in this small boutique hotel in Sanur. We had read about them on the internet & had emailed them direct for a quote. Two rooms side by side close to the pool and on ground level was what we had asked for & that is what we got. Rooms 42 & 44 were only 10 steps from the pool. All up including breakfast for the family of four was $75AUD per night . That's only $37.50 per room per night. A bargain in my books. The staff were friendly & extremely helpful when we realised my son had lost his expensive music player. They rang lost & found at the airport & sure enough he had left it on the plane. They also offer airport pickup at a reasonable rate and as we had loads of luggage it was great to be met by someone. That is how we met our driver Wayan as he was filling in for the regular hotel driver. The hotel has a small shuttle service to the beach a few times a day. We were able to pay in aussie dollars too which meant we didn't have to look for a moneychanger first thing. The rooms looked like they had been recently refurnished with fresh curtains and quilt covers. The bathrooms were nice & clean.
Be prepared as the hotel is down a minor street that turns into more of an alleyway so to some this may be a problem. Lots of locals live down this street so it is often full of motorbikes. We found this just added to the attraction of the hotel as you felt like you were living with the Balinese. The large swimming pool was really clean & refreshing. We sat out by the pool in the afternoon and the staff brought around complimentary afternoon tea or coffee which was great. On a Sunday we were given plates of fresh fruit also a nice touch. The bungalows are set in amongst the loveliest gardens I've seen in a hotel. They are so lush and tropical. You must watch your step as the paths are slippery when it rains but the gardens screen each bungalow from the pathway.
The position of the Bumi Ayu Bungalows as great as we were just a short walk to many great restaurants and a quick bemo ride up the road from the Supermarket Hardy's.

Bali Hyatt on Sanur: Tranquil Haven of Wellness
Quote:"With its distinctive architecture and lush tropical gardens abounding with exotic foliage and secluded lily ponds, Bali Hyatt is a resort hotel that is well loved for its timeless appeal, blending into the serene village life of Sanur. Guests can enjoy a wide range of resort hotel facilities or relax on the resort's beach or by the pool."
There isn`t much to add, besides, that there are 2 Bali-Hyatts: THIS one is on Sanur, the other one - the "Grand Hyatt" on Nusa Dua, much bigger and less individual!
Bali Hyatt offers a superb "Regency Club" for all guests taking "Regency Rooms"; it is worth the extra money, as one gets free American Breakfast, Five o Clock drinks and plenty of Snacks from 5-7 pm !
The beach is good, but the pools in Balinese style, situated in a tropical garden,are superior !
An open-air grill and a more elegant restaurant as well as a very nice beach-restaurant with Italian food cater for the hungry. Besides, there are countless small restaurants along the main road.
Another advantage is, that Bali Hyatt is much nearer to the cultural places like Ubud and somewhat distant to the crowds of Kuta.
Prices are negotiable, there are always deals!

Bali Hyatt (Sanur): Luxury on a Budget
The Bali Hyatt is a great resort with great gardens, decent rooms, plenty of facilites and reasonable prices for the facilities included. The private beach is one of the best in this area and plenty of water sports / activites are available. We had booked 3 nights here and including all the extras (room service etc) the final bill came to around $300. We were very lucky to get a corner room which had balconies on both sides of our garden view room.
When in Sanur there was not much to do other than chill in the resort. We walked into town for dinner 1 night and the town was small, 1 main road with a number of small shops, cafes, and bars. The food was 1/4 the price of the resort food so we got ourselves some t bone steaks with chips for around $1.50 each.
My favourit part of the Hyatt was the pools and jacuzzi. There are 2 main pools 1 which is decorated like an old bali temple / garden and the other has a bar. We spent most our time in the pools and taking photos in the gardens / temples / spas around the resorts. The spas are very expensive to use. You are able to book trips / taxis inside the resort but having quite a tight budget we decided to take a short walk to Sanur and get a taxi for 1/4 the price.

Puri Santrian, Sanur, Bali, Indonesia: Long queues for breakfast
There are three kinds of rooms in the hotel, Garden Rooms which are large, have an outside terrace with two chairs and a table, inside there is a mini-bar, two chairs, a table, TV with English satellite TV channels and a rather tired bathroom. Beach rooms are a bit smaller (with the same amenities) but have slightly smarter floor tiles, free tissues and bottled water! Also the sink is in the bedroom not the bathroom. Club Rooms are the smartest and have a four poster bed, a tv on a swivel stand, a sofa, small dressing area which is really just a corridor, and a separate shower and bathtub. Only the Club Rooms had an in-room safe and the reception's safe was not large enough to take a camera.
The hot water in the hotel stopped at 9.30pm in the evening which I did not think was reasonable for such an expensive hotel. The bed linen was marked and the cleaners were so enthusiastic they tried to enter the room at 8am so not much chance of a lie-in.
The dinning room was badly organised and didn't have enough tables so when the hotel was full you had to queue for 25 minutes for breakfast. When you finally got your table you couldn't relax because you knew people were waiting for you to finish. Also because the restaurant was open-air the flies were all over the food. I suggest if you plan staying in this hotel you have your meals elsewhere because you can eat much better and much cheaper anywhere else. In fact, I had my worst meal of my entire stay in Bali, at the hotel - a revolting goat's cheese tarte tatin.
Very attractive pool area.

Puri Santrian: Good position, luxury and relax
thisi is a very good hotel, wonderful swimming pools, good view on the ocean, good breakfast......no problems
maybe it's a bit expensive (we booked from swiss and paid 30-40 euro per person with breakfast in august) so I suggest to stay there if you want relax and luxury for some day. it's in good position for dinner outside (we never had dinner there) just walking, for founding transport or change money. it's really at the beginning of danau tamblingan.
at night you can have cocktail on the ocean (but it's more expensive than outside). don't change money or take transport inside the hotel. go outside it's cheaper!!!
the site is www.santrian.com (search for puri)

GRIYA SANTRIAN: Sanur's Friendliest Hotel
Staff were very friendly and helpful. We upgraded on arrival to a superior beach wing room. We chose an upstairs room with a view over the pool.
Update: we have stayed here twice now(2004 + 2005) and been very happy both times.
Staff are always friendly and courteous.
Beautiful setting, 2 pools, 2 restaurants, right on the beach.
Food was good too, although always dearer than eating at the local cafes. Breakfast was included in our deal, big range to choose from.... no complaints.
We will definitely stay here again.

Hotel Tandjung Sari: Private traditional hotel room
Its kind of bungalow cluster room, where every room are so private. The service is excellent, facilities is cool! Imagine, the room designed in 'L', with comfort sofa in balinese traditional style wood at first sight. Every room have private garden, wide bathtub with no curtains and hiding closet. And, the outdoor shower! Romantic huh? Then just get laid on wooden double bed in transparent curtains around. So exotic, yet romantic!
This hotel also have pool, and it's in beach side. They give discount when im here, 70 USD per night, not as in their roomrate.
Dont forget to be here with your lovely partner! :) Really worth to stay!
