“Fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We stayed two weeks at this beautiful hotel. The rooms were big, nice and clean with large balconies. Placed right at the beach - 3 pools and 3 restaurants and the whole area was an adventure with beautiful trees and flowers everywhere. 3 minutes to the main road with very good restaurants everywhere. The staff were very helpful and nice. We enjoyed every minute at this hotel - and can recommend it.

Sanur is a laid back area of Bali and this hotel worked perfectly for us. We stayed in the Santrian Suite which was excellent. We loved the resort and the location was ideal. Just a short walk and you're either on the beach, at one of the numerous restaurants, or your on the main street which again has a lot of restaurants and numerous bars. The hotel made you feel that your were in Bali, lush & tropical but very classy. We found the service overall to be excellent. Having three pools was great so if one got a bit too noisy, kids jumping around, you could wander off to find a more peaceful spot. A huge plus would be if they made one of the pool areas kid free so that the many guests who don't have kids could have some peace & quiet. There was some construction going on, which won't be finished for another 6 months, but it didn't detract from our great experience. I'd certainly recommend this hotel and we hope to stay here again soon.

Spending a few days at this resort is really what a perfect vacation is all about. The staff is always very friendly and helpful with lots of attention to detail, the property is well maintained and clean, the location is right at the beach, the quality of the restaurants is very good, offers a large variety from Japanese to Italian to local specialties.

The resort is very peaceful with most guests being either freshly wed or celebrating their anniversary. That also means that there is not much going on in the evenings other then BBQ and similar banquets with live music organized by the hotel. However, there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance.

There are wooden sun loungers with umbrellas right at the beach provided by the hotel at no cost, however the access to the sea is not great due to the extensive tide and the sea grass found in many places. To make up for it, you have three hotel pools to choose from and there are always seats available both in the sun and in the shade.

Room Tip: There is currently a renovation going on (August 2013). While it is not disturbing, I recommend aski...

We moved to Sanur after staying 3 days in Kuta because the atmosphere is more peaceful and the place is a good base for exploring the island’s south and for a day trip to Ubud.

We actually stayed at this hotel twice, leaving our main luggage at reception between stays for 3 days, while we travelled to north Bali (Lovina / Singaraja) to see the dazzling Sekumpul waterfalls. We also visited the Git Git falls in the north and then went to Padang Bai on the east coast from where we crossed over to Lombok for 2 days.

Both times we had a room in the garden wing, the first time in a villa with a verandah by the pool and the second time a room with a large balcony at the first floor overlooking the main garden pool (all buildings on the compound have only 2 levels). Both rooms were spacious and immaculately clean and had sizeable bathrooms but we liked the second one more.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was very good and served al fresco in an open pavilion directly by the beach and shoreside pool. Those without breakfast included can pay “à la carte” or opt for the more expensive buffet. There are of course cheaper breakfast options outside on the main street, but without the gorgeous views.

The hotel is just a short walk from Sanur's main road (Jalan Tamblingan) with its countless shops, restaurants and money changers. One of Sanur’s best restaurants, the Kayu Manis, is within walking distance from the hotel.

We loved the picture-perfect beach setting of this hotel and its vast tropical garden running down straight to the beach. One of the garden pavilions has Internet-connected PCs for guests, while another pavilion is home to an art gallery. WiFi is good in the lobby and main pavilion but was spotty in our rooms. There are 3 swimming pools on the compounds, of which the beachside one has a bar and is the busiest. The other 2 pools are more private, and sometimes you can have any of the 2 garden pools all for yourself !

Balinese are passionate about tropical gardens. The Griya Santrian is a perfect example: its well maintained grounds are beautifully landscaped and could serve as inspiration for nature or fashion photographers. There are orchids, lotuses, heliconias, anthuriums, bromeliads and other tropical plants, apart from the tall palm trees – you could spend hours with close-up photography on the compounds.

Overall, a relaxing and very enjoyable stay. Will gladly return.

Room Tip: While the garden wing rooms are at a 2-4 min walk to the beach, the area is quieter and you have qui...

Room was clean and very spacious, pool refreshing, staff very attentive and the location of the property excellent. Very close to markets, the beach and other restaurants within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return here!! A great end to our holiday!

If you want a lovely quiet place away from the kuta side of things I would suggest the griya santrian at sanur. The staff were exceptional except for once case when I needed an extra towel to put behind my neck to support a bad neck and one of the towel people was quiet rude and would not
Allow this even when I explained my situation , but all the other towel staff were great.well worth the deluxe rooms if the budget allows .
Yes I would go back there again.

Room Tip: Higher floors nomen above you scrapping chairs.

We have been to Bali about nine times now and this Hotel, with the exception of one time when we stayed at the Puri Santrian which was very good too, is the only Hotel we have ever stayed at because it is excellent in every way. We have just had eleven nights there and once again it was wonderful. We have stayed in the Beach Wing, Suite and Deluxe rooms over the years. We especially like the Deluxe rooms. We have recommended this Hotel to many friends and all have been so pleased. Truly a beautiful Bali experience in Sanur ~ the quieter part of Bali.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms near front pool, beach and restaurant are lovely and Suites closer to back pool are ext...
