“Lovely rooms, reasonable rates, quiet area - not great for singles but very family orientated.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2009

This is tucked away off a quiet street and is a pleasant enough little bungalow operation and is quite reasonably priced. In my opinion the best thing about Sari Sanur are the rooms, detached and situated around the pool,hidden behind shrubs and flowers for a pretty setting and lots of privacy. They are spacious, clean and stylishly decorated, the bathrooms are charming, stone shower and real outdoor feel. There is also a small garden area with great seating. The pool is quite large and there is a great massage service during the daytime.

Its a small walk to the restaurant and beach. Having seen lots of spectacular pictures of Bali's beaches I was quite underwhelmed by this one, it was nice enough but small , lined with cafes and nothing special. The sunbeds offered by the hotel were not great either, but spread a towel down near one of the big palms and everything's fine. I ended up paying a taxi to take me to other beaches that were a lot nicer and if I was to return to Bali I probably would not stay here based on this. On the positive side the food was lovely, breakfast was served on your patio every morning. The staff were very friendly and helpful and did their best to accommodate any requests.

There is not a lot going on nearby, a few bars and restaurants, a few shops selling the usual Balinese trinkets. I was travelling alone and would not recommend this to anyone looking to meet with other travelers, or people looking to party, however it would be very well suited to older couples or families.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2009

My husband and I stayed at Sari Sanur for 2 weeks in June desperately needing a rest . We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Stepping out of the lobby we realised that we had found the perfect place, private,peaceful and sooo green!! The bungalows were larger than we expected,big comfy bed, fridge with affordable mini bar, bathroom even had mini shampoo etc. Laundry was also reasonable and good. Best of all the massages beside the pool were the best we have ever had. The pool is small by most resort standards, but as not many people were swimming it was ok for us. Most of the people staying there were over 40 and we only saw 1 child for 1 day. Breakfast came on a tray (you ring when you are ready for breakfast) but the same every morning-so it gets a bit boring. The staff are wonderful, attentive but not all over you. The bungalows will need to be painted soon as things are starting to look a bit tired-hopefully a pale colour(ours was a dark pink). The Sari Sanur is close to the beach and deck chairs are provided(free of charge) for guests. This is not a resort for you if you are looking for night or party life. There is'nt a swimup bar or a restaurant in the resort.

I spent 2.5 weeks here during February/March 2009 and could not fault the place. There are 18 bungalows circled around the pool. The rooms are large with a king size bed, airconditioning, TV, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom is beautifully clean and the shower works, lots of hot water and really good water pressure which is normally a rarity in Bali! The staff are friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The grounds are well kept and the pool is always clean. Handy location to some of the best beach restaurants, close to shops and bars. Breakfast is served on your balcony every morning.

Being on a tight budget my boyfriend and I were expecting it to be a bit grim but we were pleasantly surprised. The resort was small, but everything was just right. The room was simple and everything we needed was provided. The landscaping was beautiful and the beach is so close it felt like a perfect location. We booked ou room which included breakfast and it was a real treat having it delivered to our porch in the morning. We had the odd cockroach in the room but with a flip flop to hand it was not a problem. Considering how little we paid we were more than happy with the hotel.

A wonderful place to stay for those on a budget. It’s near the beach, quiet for those who want to take it easy but close enough to Kuta to go out and have fun. (Would highly recommend The Bounty – brilliant pirate ship nightclub!)

  • Liked — Location - 100 m from the beach at this price? What more could you ask for
  • Disliked — Msoquitoes and cockroaches

M y partner and i have just returned from 15 nights at the Sari Sanur and we cannot fault the place especially at the cost. The staff are polite and helpful. The small cottage type rooms are well equipped and clean internally and extremely private outside in your own small walled porch and garden. Breakfast is served on the porch which i think is a great concept much better than a dining room. The pool is nice and the beach is a 2 minute walk with sunbeds and umbrellas provided by the hotel(at no cost). The main street with restaurants etc is a 1 minute walk in the other direction so overall a very well situated place to stay.

  • Liked — The private walled patio.

I stayed at Sari Sanur for 5 nights upon recommendation of a friend in Bali. For the price, it was fantastic. You get a bungalow of your own and its very private with your own "garden" and an entry door.

Location: Sanur is roughly 30 minutes away from Kuta and is quiet. If that sounds okay, then this location will suit you perfectly. You have direct access to the beach within 100 meters and there are plenty of of restaurants around

Service: Simply put, I had no complaints about the service whatsoever.

Food: Breakfast is serviced in your room and it is obviously much better than eating with bunch of strangers at a buffet. You get a choice of American, Continental, or Indonesian and I was very happy with its quality.

Room: Very roomy and a nice bathroom. The bed was fine and you get a TV with HBO, CNN and Starsports. Only complaiont I have is that after couple of days, I noticed there were some bugs that managed to come into the room. I imagine that may not be 100% unavoidable in place like Bali.

Others: I loved the easy access to the beach and all the restaurants that are along the Beach. Bonsai Cafe, the restaurant that yoiu must walk thru to get to the beach, is one of the better ones on the beach. The Picadilly Restaurant was good also. If you are into nightlife, I would not recommend this hotel as it is 30 minutes away from Kuta.

Overall, you cannot ask for more considering the price.

We spent six nights at Sari Sanur. We found the rooms well serviced, clean and comfortable. The rooms were functional rather than luxurious with a very large king size bed, A/C, limited TV coverage, good storage including safe. Bathroom was servicable, hot water variable. The mini bar was well stocked and very inexpensive. Laundry was also very cheap. The bathroom has steps into it, and down to the shower area. Each room has an outdoor patio, quite private, and surrounded by tropical gardens. A good breakfast (Indo, American or Continental) is served daily on the patio. The pool is small (around 8 metres diameter) and waist deep, but clean. There is also a kids pool. The location is great, a 2 min stroll to the excellent Bonsai cafe on the beach (try the chili crab with a Bintang). There is also a ' Circle K" shop on the beach just down from the Bonsai cafe. Handy for topping up on necessities but watch how they ring up your purchases and count your change. A one minute walk to the main shopping strip at Sanur including a very inexpensive beauty parlor (Achityo - or something similar). The mosquitos were really annoying both in the room and on the patio. We bought coils to try to deter them.
