“A little piece of heaven on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

This hotel is not one of a chain. It is small, individual, unique. We have never met such friendly efficient staff in any other hotel, and never been treated so well in any hotel we have ever stayed in previously.
Yes, some of the rooms need a little updating, but the whole character and atmosphere of the place is peaceful, relaxing and utterly charming.
The food is excellent, and the individual bungalows with outside showers and seating areas are an absolute joy to stay in. The private beach in front of the hotel is clean and the sunbeds comfortable. A little oasis away from the busy noisy streets of Sanur. Many of the guests were on repeat visits and we can understand why!

This was one of the first smart small hotels in Bali style.
Good for bed on arrival and depature.

Staff seem to lack motivation and training?
I made the mistake of asking towel man for a cup of tea and he said this was for some one else to fix!

If you had to stay @ Sanur this is a strong contender.

As one of the few truly autentic Balinese boutique resorts, Tandjung Sari has on top of that at least one hidden gem : its cuisine !
Here the East finally meets the cuisine of the West as the fusion menu art was supposed to be : inviting, creative and always surprising ! Unique in it's blend of local and international flavours, Tandjung Sari 's cuisine ranks amongst Bali's finest. Don't miss out on this one !

I was a little bit disappointed when we arrived at hotel as from reviews was expecting a lot more. The hotel is tired and needs updating. Rooms were a good size but smelt musty. Bathrooms need work as very old. We loved the big bath and the outside shower. Towels were only changed twice in the week we were there. My hubby threw his on the floor one day so they only changed his. Staff were friendly and attentive. Grounds were lovely.

We love this little gem and think it will stay on our list of favourites for a long time.
We paid US $170 per night with breakfast. They let us have a late check out until 8 pm for an extra US $85
Can't beat the position and intimate, personal feel of this little hotel.
Wonderful service and very good security.
Super comfy bed
Love the outdoor shower
Con
Breakfast was very ordinary and not much to choose from :(
Can't wait to return :)

Tandjung sari is in a gorgeous location on a clean, beautiful beach. All of the outdoor space is beautiful: the beach, restaurant, bar and pool. We had breakfast and lunch here everyday and the food is good, with a couple of hits and misses, but overall good. The service is friendly here. They do not ever offer happy hour or drink specials, which was frustrating, especially one day when the "sundowner happy hour" they advertised consisted of free juices and snacks.
The rooms are clean and filled with Balinese antiques and vintage furniture which is very charming. The mosquito net is excellent. The bathroom aspects of the rooms : tiles, fixtures, sinks, etc sorely need updating and replacing. The bathrooms off the restaurant are great and they should renovate the villa bathrooms similarly. Also our villa smelled musty unless you blasted the AC constantly.
All in all we have enjoyed our stay and again the location is great.

We stayed 6 nights with our 3 kids. The hotel is beautifully maintained. The gardens are gorgeous and the rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff are very friendly. The food was okay but fresh. The only problem was that most of the guests were older and there were no other families for our kids to play with.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tandjung Sari was opened in 1962 and began as an extension of the family home of Indonesian proprietor Wija Wawo-Runtu. The hotel was named Tandjung Sari (cape of flowers) and initially developed as Bali's very first boutique property to be managed as a small family business catering to the needs of a privileged clientele. The scale of the entire complex was purposely kept low rise and the articulation of space together with the rambling indirectness of the path ways has generated a relaxed, leisurely pace. Operational for nearly half of a century, Tandjung Sari showcases an eclectic collection of rare Balinese and Dutch colonial artifacts as a tribute to the glorious past. ... more   less
