It's hard to describe Sudamala. It's not like any other regular hotels we were familiar with. We were at first rather worried when we just arrived at the pathetic hotel 'lobby', which was just a small space with a writing desk under a hut next to the driveway.
But beyond the reception, on the way to our room, we started to appreciate the hotel's architecture, paintings and sculptures in the open space and along the corridors. It was as if we were in an art gallery of Balinese contemporary art.
The room door was made of 2-piece traditional Balinese wood carving. Every room had a different artistic design. We especially loved the old-style metal door key which gave us the feeling of nostalgic.
We were overwhelmed when saw our room, which was spacious and elegant. The ceiling was impressively high with a long ceiling fan hanging from it. We loved the unusually huge bathroom with an open shower area. The bed was a little too high, but it was surely very comfortable.
We spent next whole day simply relax at the hotel. First we attended the free yoga lesson in the morning. Then we had our late breakfast at the open-air restaurant, sat back, watching people and traffic passing by. We had spa in the afternoon and laid around pool side till the evening. What a good life in Sanur.
Though the hotel was located at the busy junction in Sanur area, it was peaceful and quiet in the room which we had two restful nights.
