4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Tandjung Sari was a pleasurably experience indeed.

We stayed in bungalow 25 and enjoyed the private outdoor shower and the little personal garden not to mention the outdoor bale. Staff was courteous and friendly.

The architecture of this hotel thoughtfully laid out, the restaurant quite nice and the beach area well kept with an occasional, astounding view which makes it a waste of money to export yourself to hyped up Jimbaran Beach.

From what I can gather this is pretty much on the top in terms of value for money in Sanur. Whole heartedly recommended. A big thumbs up to staff and manager.

Room Tip: If staying in the bungalows definitely go for one w. outdoor shower, large bathtub and exterior bale...

After my review of our January 2013 stay, I didn't think I could expand much on my last foray into the reviewing department, but I was wrong. Currently staying here at the moment, and if it's possible I think the Tandjung Sari is even more delightful to my eyes than 12months ago.

As usual the staff are all, without exception, fantastic. From the front desk welcome, to the bar, restaurant, gardeners, pool, cleaning and gift shop! Not a dud amongst them! They are all willing, friendly and helpful. Mostly I guess the staff are not only kind but respectful as well.

The food is the best anywhere in Bali. Not just perfect steaks, matabak, fish skewers etc, but their breakfasts are pretty scrummy too. You always get that little bit extra no matter what you order.

We have a beach front villa and it too is fantastic. Private garden and two storey, with outdoor bathroom and a huge bath! Bed big, comfy and clean. Turndown service quaint and appreciated.
General room cleanliness could be lifted a little and hopefully that will come.

Our room, and I have no doubt there will be others on the property, could do with a face lift inside.
Just some paint, new taps, drains and shower heads. Not huge changes, but ones which would make a huge difference to all tourists and staff alike.

We are already planning another Bali trip with family later this year. We will definitely coming back to this glorious place. Where the real Bali is constantly brought to life.

Room Tip: Beach front rooms excellent, but I believe all rooms are nice

Our first ever trip to Bali was marked by incessant rain but we didn't mind as we spent it in the divine atmosphere of Tandjung sari. We were booked at a village bungalow - fantastic room. They put in 2 extra beds for the kids. There was an outdoor gazebo. The open air shower and large bathtub were just perfect! They had complimentary sarongs and nightwear (His and Hers) in the room that we were happy to use. Great service (with lots of smiles) and a great breakfast spread made it one of the top boutique hotels I've ever stayed in. If I have one complaint, it is that their wifi arrangements are very clumsy. You have a separate login id and password for every room, lobby, restaurant etc and only one device can use this id at any given point. How much simpler and efficient to have multiple devices able to connect with one password....this was an irritant as I was committed to some work during my stay there. The resort is also well-connected to many of the Sanur restaurants so you can stroll outside to have a meal, massage etc quite easily.
Overall, 4 stars.

This hotel deserves a reward for fostering the essence of Bali: quiet solitude amid Bali sculptures and art. Regretfully, Sanur has lost the essence of Bali with its plethora of bars, tattoo parlors, noise and unkempt streets outside the gates. (We have been travelling to Bali since the 1970s and lived in nearby Surabaya for three years.) The Tandjung Sari Hotel is a little peace of heaven, tucked away from the hurly burly. The villas are unique with much tender care taken to give the guest privacy and solitude. The shower under the stars, the "gazebo" hut in the Villa's garden, the large bed and tub all cater to privacy and quiet. The management comes from a distinguished Balinese family. The staff is outstanding, the beach area beautiful, the meals better than anything available outside the hotel.

I love Tandjung Sari mostly for the memories, but also for the fact that it has never let me down! The first time I went was with friends and their parents, who had had their honeymoon years ago at the Tandjung Sari, and I've kept going back, even though it's not quite of the squeaky clean and luxurious caliber of the other Bali hotels that I know and love...The service is just so friendly, they treat you not only just like family, but as if you are their *favorite* family member! The food is also delicious, the rooms are spacious and very comfortable, and count as 'luxurious' for a Sanur hotel. The hotel is within easy walking distance from Sanur's (limited) attractions, but it's just such a lovely and peaceful place to stay that I don't mind it being a little bit out of the Seminyak way. The service is the highlight, but the beach is also good, even great, for Sanur!

A little piece of heaven, we always have a few nights here to start our Bali trip and sometimes at the end too! We love everything about this hotel, rooms, staff, food, atmosphere. If you are like me and are not so keen on polyester sheets, I asked the manager who said that pure cotton can be provided! Nothing is too much trouble!

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely, the more expensive ones are Devine and closer to the beach but the garden...

We had a great experiance in Tandjung Sari in Sanur,
the staff is excellent, food is great and not that expensive compared to local restaurants,
villa's are great, have a lot of space and a very nice and romantic bathroom. Even outdoor private garden is a nice place to relax with a good book and a cup of thea.
There are only 32 villa's available and it al feels very calm and relaxing.
We had a wonderfull and romantic experance, it felt like we had a second honeymoon.
THANK YOU Tandjung Sari

Room Tip: Even their standard villa is great.

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
