“A wonderful oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

My first trip to Bali, and my wife, the brains of the operation had visited Obud last year with a friend. She had come into the Swastika Bungalows on a day trip to Sanur. When I said I was going to tack on a week in Bali at the end of a business trip, she said, check out the Swastika. I'm glad she did! While nothing to look at from the outside, once you're inside the compound, the craziness that is Sanur could be miles away. There are three pools, the newest and largest is the nicest. The staff are very friendly, and attentive. I had a bungalow with fan cooling, on the economy side of the property that was really comfortable for one. Now, that said I wouldn't have stayed in one of these if it were my honeymoon, but hey, for a week or R & R, it was great! I can highly recommend this place for any first timer to Bali.

We made a last minute travel change and our favorite hotel was booked so we scoured the area and the Swastica came up. The pricing was good but the reviews were not great.......then we noted there was an old and new section to the hotel. We booked a new delux room with an extra bed (2 adults and 2 children under 3 years) and hoped for the best.
We arrived and the entrance was a narrow driveway that opened to a open air reception area, if the attitude of the staff was anthing to go by this would be a fantastic stay. The staff were some of the friendliest and most helpfull we had encountered in Bali. We were taken to our room, through the lush gardens, narrow pathways and past the older bungalows. The pathway gave way to a massive pool with a fantastic swimm up bar. The pool had a fantastic kids pool and a lip around the main pool that was knee deep and about 3 meters wide, this area proved a great area to laze in the pool and keep the kids close by. The pool itslelf was, dark blue, tile lined, super deep and always a great temp. It had plenty of day beds, and shaded areas. The resort also had 2 other pools but this was our favourite, there was another smaller pool that would be great for private sun baking and a quite read or snooze. The swim up pool bar is great and the pricing is the same as on the street..............awesome.
The room its self was perfect, I spoke the staff and they are only about 8 months old, huge rooms, great beds, awesome balcony, cold air con, bathroom was fantastic and top notch. The cleaning was spot on and impossible to fault. There was no safe in the rooms but a free safety deposit box was provided at reception.
I looked at the older bungalows and for the price I thought they were fine, just a bit old and as such looking dated but still had everthing you need or could want.
The hotel is about a 5-10 min walk to the beach and right in the middle of some great eating spots, one of our favorites was Wyans right out the front, dirty and dodgy but an awesome local feed for little $$$$.
WE WILL STAY AGAIN.........LOVED IT HERE and am planing the next holiday here already.......we have a ne Sanuar favorite hotel.

My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights in July 2012 in a standard room with AC (n.79) for 58US$ per night.
Pros : location is good: 5-10 minutes from the beach, close to markets (Hardy’s and Coco Mart), restaurants and authorized money-changer (beware at non – authorized ones : they always try to cheat you!); very nice and well kept gardens with flowers and trees; three nice small pools with lots of sunbeds; pool towels provided; all the staff is kind and helpful; good breakfast (your choice of eggs with bacon and tomato, bread, pastries, jam, noodles, fruit, juices) served at the terrace overlooking one of the pool; the room is large and clean: good king-size bed, 2 bottles of water every day, mini-fridge, good wi-fi, TV; free safe at reception.
Cons: bathroom and room furniture very old and run down: they need renovation!

Very welcoming and helpful staff. Good hot breakfast served by a friendly crew.. Location is very convenient to the beach (which itself is not that much of a beaach). It is in the center of the commercial areaa with many restaurants and shops.

We often stay in Sanur Bali, generally in cheap B&B. We thought we might go up market a touch. The Swastika is opposite Billie's Restaurant my preferred choice but my wife likes a bit of comfort so the Swastika it was. We stayed for 3 weeks! Billy was a bit upset when we told him where we were but confirmed it was a good choice. A real English breakfast is something we do at home and weren't disappointed. Room comfortable, staff kind and attentive, nice to have a cold beer on the patio and watch the monkeys scrambling over the palms. Close to Hardy's the local dept store and 5 minutes at most to the beach if that's what you want. Sanur is a lovely place to stay, much better than Kuta where most of the drunks and spivs stay. Plus the locals do not hassle you but they do love to haggle so don't be afraid. I spent 20 minutes haggling over a taxi fare, saved all of 11p and the driver said he enjoyed the trade. Me too!

Room Tip: To the rear of the gardens away from the street noise.

Good location and near to beach. We had taken 2 rooms to accommodate six adults with 3 in each room. The rooms were comfortable and they provided one extra bed in each room. They had baby pool and regular pool as well. Nice breakfast with lot of varieties. We stayed here for 5 nights. Also on walking distance about 20-25 minutes in Indian restaurant as well if you want to try.

We stayed at Swastika Bungalows both before and after a cruise and recommend the hotel for its friendly staff, quiet surroundings, inviting pools, convenient location, and lush, tropical gardens. Very good value.
