“A wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We chose the Sudamala because of it's location in Sanur, is reasonably new and because most of the beach hotels rated so bad.
First up, the place is beautifully designed with a modern twist on Balinese style. It consists of two compounds really, the first a square lawn around which many of the villas are and the second the pool area.
The staff are fantastic and very smiley and helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived so they led us to the pool area to wait for 20 minutes or so.

We chose to stay in a deluxe suite and were not disappointed. I think this is one of the best designed rooms I have ever stayed in. The main room has the bed and that alone is huge, a balcony extends off this. The bathroom sink and wardrobe area is separated by sliding doors and then there are glass doors which separate the toilet and shower wet room, this area is outside as the window is just bars. An ingenious design which brings the bungalow style into a standard hotel space. The bed and pillows were very comfy.

Breakfast is served in what is essentially the hotel restaurant which is located outside the main hotel area and by the road. This is a bit of a shame as it is away from the internal calm atmosphere of the hotel. However, the breakfast menu is extensive and you can order as much as you like.

The pool has to be almost half Olympic and is a lovely cool and clean. Great for laps although it is only a consistent 1.3m deep.

Only minor issues to be aware of is the fact that the hotel is bang smack in the middle of a busy area and noise travels up and over the hotel fenceline quite easily. Most annoying is a very noisy buzzing coming from an electricity pylon very close to the lawn area and our second floor room.
Also, as nice as the open bathroom is I did feel a little exposed at night with the light on as the curtain is just a thin reed affair and felt quite sure it provided good entertainment to the rooms opposite.

Also recommended is the Beach styled restaurant directly opposite the hotel entrance, excellent food and value.

Overall, we would happily return any day.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms must surely be brighter and quieter.

We loved this hotel. The free bikes and the free yoga 3 days a week were a great addition to our stay. The location is very central in Sanur and it is a smaller hotel, so we enjoyed a relatively quiet time around the pool without thousands of people and kids!
We would highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Jessica M,

Warmest greetings from Sudamala Suites & Villas Sanur!

Thank you very much for your brief comments in regards to Sudamala Sanur!

Great to have you staying with us lately and we are happy to know that you loved the resort which is located in the central of Sanur.

Sanur is indeed so relaxing to bike around and to chill out in many cozy corners, a laid back, peaceful area among the locals.

Our Yoga Class at Suda Ening Yoga Space is one of our in-house activities that really worth to participate. We believe it will deliver a more relaxing mind during the vacation and to give our body a sense of day off from the daily routine.

Thank you once again for your kind attention and support, wishing you a pleasant day!

Best regards,

General Manager

This was absolutely the best part of our stay in Bali. After having traveled all over Asia, I wasn't impressed by Bali's beaches or temples or the terrible traffic and overbuilt towns, but the stay at Sudamala was amazing.

The staff was fantastic and the room (1st floor standard room) so gorgeous and comfortable. It was difficult to leave every day!

The spa was good. The room even came with a free 10 minute massage for each of us. Pool was nice, too. There were always a few guests sunbathing but we were the only ones in the pool whenever we went.

The grounds are decorated beautifully with dozens of plumeria trees and beautiful pieces of art. The staff are very accommodating. One day, a fruit carving class was organized but never happened. The chef came and personally apologized and offered to hold a private class for me any time during our stay. Four staff members came to the great lounge area near the pool to teach me how to carve a watermelon into a rose and a melon into a lotus. So cool!

This is a great place to relax, lounge, and spend time with loved ones.

One shortcoming for us was the breakfast selection. We are vegetarian and don't take eggs. Unfortunately, that left only cereal, granola, and an Indonesia noodle dish with tofu and peanut sauce for us. The staff tried their best to be helpful, but all their baked goods are made with eggs, so we were out of luck.

Also, take note that they do have a stretch of beach, but it is a 10-15 minute walk from the resort and not the cleanest.

Our five-year-old loved the beautiful antique Balinese box the staff would leave on the bed during the turn-down service. It included a traditional sweet, bedtime story, and the next day's schedule.

Dear RS108,

Warnest greetings from Sudamala Suites & Villas Sanur!

Thank you very much for your kind compliments after staying with us recently. We do hope your overall Asia trip was a memorable one!

When visiting Bali next time, we do encourage you to explore Bali a bit by doing some inland tours to the other part of Bali that you probably will prefer to see.

We do appreciate your kind comments about our Sudamala associates, as well as our other products such as Sudajiva Spa, our Suites, and our landscape.

Great to hear that you experienced the Fruit Carving Demo and even learn to do some fruit carving with our Chefs here at Sudamala. It is indeed nice. :)

Thank you for sharing the comments on your boy who loved our wooden Balinese box where we always put our bed time story, to introduce our traditional sweets, as well as the resort’s next day activities.

We hope all is well and we look forward to have you back staying with us in the not too distant future.

Best regards,

General Manager

Spent a week in this hotel with visiting family. Was not disappointed. The whole area was well maintained with lovely gardens, outdoor restaurant, spa are and great swimming pool. Service by the staff was first class and attentive.Rooms spacious and beds comfortable. Large bathroom and shower area. Used the restaurant twice and food was good, but on the second night very slow service and we all didn't get our food together. However this slightly mishap was not a greAt problem as would certainly come book again.

Room Tip: Second floor would recommend

I was torn about writing this review for the following reasons:
- This is a lovely boutique hotel, nicely appointed in tasteful minimalist design. In my view it is not a resort, so if you are looking for an intimate, cozy stylish place with no much going on, then this is the place.
- The staff was lovely, kind and warm throughout. However, they organised a boat excursion for us to Nusa Lembongan. We checked the pricing in USD with reception and paid promptly at the boat office. In fact, we paid an higher amount than the market conversion rate, but accepted it as the price to pay for not settling in rupiah. To our surprise we were asked for further $ on our way back to Sanur (or they would have not taken us back). Now, I recommend the hotel sorts this out with the boat company, as we felt that it is inappropriate for a serious hotel establishment to affiliate itself in any shape or form with a dishonest boat excursion business.
- Nice spa and massage
- Refreshing swimming pool, small but peaceful with beautiful fresh water so clean! We loved it
- Good a la carte breakfast and delicious illy coffee.
- Comfortable huge beds and very clean rooms
I also have to be honest and say that I did not like Sanur at all. Compared to the Gili islands, Jimbaran or Semyniak, Sanur is very very rundown and... dirty! The seaside is not good I am afraid...
