Hotel... good location?

Hi,

First timers to Bali... we will be staying at the Parigata Resort & Spa

Maybe someone has stayed here and can tell us if we are central to shops, restaurants. markets etc: Is beach about a 5-10 walk away

Many thanks :)

We were staying across the road in May, the lane that runs along side the Parigata will take you to the beach/beachfront path.

The location is more to the southern end of Sanur (quieter end) and there are restaurants e.g Manik Organic, Warung Coconut Tree (under the same umbrella, Little Bird Warung to northern end of Jl Tamblingan & Warung Beach Breeze on Jl Cemara to the south) great musicians playing the night we dined (travel in one of the green bemo's at night to dine at this end)

More restaurants as you walk north, shops & spa's, money changers etc along the street.

Further north Hardys, e.g supermarket and upstairs it's similar to a department store although we bought our drinks etc at the Coco Mart.(which was closer)

Sindhu Market is north from here e.g beach type wear, dresses, shorts, tops, bags etc although you will find shops if you walk further south selling the same & along Jl Tamblingan & the beachfront.

Warungs for cheaper eating on the sand at the southern end & beachfront restaurants as you walk towards the northern end.

Best way to get around is to hire a push bike, ride from your resort to the south e.g Jl Cemara, Jl Danau Poso etc & come back along the beachfront path to the north & then make your way back to Jl Tamblingan etc.

It's a great location in Sanur. Lots of great restaurants and shops north and south along the main street. The beach will be no more than 5 minute away.

Night market is at the north end of Jl Danau Tamblingan. There's also a good fixed price shop (Tootsie's) near the beach end of Jl Pantai Sindu in the north. You're also very close to Hardy's general store.

I've stayed there a few times, I really like it. Great pool

Very nice buffet breakfast

Used the spa a few times and enjoyed it. More expensive ( slightly) than other places but the convenience is worth it

It is very close to all sorts of restaurants and not far from Hardy's also

There is a path to the beach or you can take the hotel shuttle to their other property,I think

Ice cream at Massimiliano is a must, especially when the thermometer is pushing 30+
