Excellent honeymoon location. We stayed for 8 nights after a short stay in Singapore. Very relaxing, the pools are lovely and the beach was nice too. The meals at the beachside restaurant are lovely - and very good value for money. There is a separate menu for during the day and on an evening and both have plenty of choice. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel, instead we went to Donalds on the beach for an American breakfast - again great value. We only ate in the Mezzanine restaurant on our last night and wished that we had discovered it sooner. We had a fantastic set meal - the seafood teppanyaki which was delicious, and there was plenty of it. This restaurant is more expensive than the local beachfront restaurants and pub meals - but in terms of quality of food and setting, well worth it. We have only one negative comment about the hotel and that was the cleanliness of the beach. We arrived after a spell of unseasonably bad weather, which had brought in a fair bit of detritus from the sea. This wasn't cleaned up for a couple of days and meant that we weren't inclined to enter into the sea for a couple of days as it meant walking over the rubbish. Like I say, it was cleared after a couple of days and shouldn't be a problem for future visitors.

We have just spent 10 days at the Puri Santrian and loved it. We booked a bungalow but were upgraded to a club room as we arrived early. The room was big and clean with a very comfortable 4 poster bed. The shower had good pressure all the time. The 3 pools are lovely but the club one is a bit quieter and more sheltered from the wind than the main one. I thought the gardens were lovely and very well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful.all the time The breakfast was fantastic everyday - overall I really couldn't fault a thing!!

Best restaurant - The beach cafe - on the beach path in north sanur. FANTASTIC food balienise with a mix of western style and presentation. Everywhere we ate was good, I can highly recommend Donalds on the road or the beach, Bobbys,and Bonsai cafe.

The hotel and service was perfect and worth far more than 3 stars.

Check in was smooth and the staff were very friendly throughout our whole stay. The room was always spotless and had plenty of space. Each day your room also gets free bottled water so you can avoid the "bali belly".

The resort is aimed at those wanting a romantic, peaceful getaway. Not many children around which we personally saw as a major plus.

The building itself looks very nice and has some grand stonework which looks even better in the night-light. There is a nice selection of shops and food onsite, the breakfast included in your stay has a great choice and a lot of foods are cooked to order infront of you (omelettes etc).

They also offer room service until the early hours, however if you wanted to try a wider selection of local cuisine there are plenty of restaurants right outside the gates on the main road. (Try the Bamki Hotplate!!!)

As with any holiday you need to reserve your sun lounger early in busy periods but the hotel do their best to help by not allowing towels to be hired until after 9am breakfast. The pools themselves are lovely.

The onsite massage parlour is also worth a visit, all guests get a free "Jet Lag" 15 minute massage card, but paying for one of the more indepth treatments is well worth it

The overall feel of the place is a relaxing, clean, friendly environment where you can be at peace away from the hustle bustle of street traders. If you do wish to venture out and see some of the island, the hotel can offer good deals on tours to some of the major attractions. This can also all be added to your room bill if you wish to pay at the end of your holiday.

Having toured past some of the other hotels on the island I saw no where else that compared to the Puri Santrian and we would definitely go back

We stayed in a beach bungalow for two weeks. It was a lovely room, very spacious, with traditional balinese furniture, which is by nature fairly simple.

The daily breakfast had everything you could desire, plus if you wanted to order eggs in a certain style they would do this at no extra cost. Breakfast would usually be accompanied by two gamelan musicians playing traditional balinese music - very relaxing.

It was our wedding anniversary during our stay and they presented us with a lovely chocolate cake on the day. Tasted great.

We ate in the hotel at the Mezzanine on our anniversary and this was the only occassion that we did. Yes, the service and food was excellent - but was more expensive that other local eateries. Our favourites were Donalds, Stiff Chilli and Massimo.

The hotel was very peaceful and the grounds and swimming pools were stunning. My husband had a couple of massages (as he always does on holiday) and said they were excellent.

The hotel does not have the amenities of a four star - but the service, grounds and accomodation make it a lovely pace for a relaxing holiday.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and although was disappointed at not receiving an upgrade to the Santrian Club, did not really see what difference this would have made after having a look at the rooms / pool area.

For our 5 night stay we had a standard garden room which was very conveniently located equidistant from the reception "long house", the beach club restaurant and the pools and beach. The room was oversized, but no air con in the bathroom which got a bit steamy. Every day fresh bottled water was delivered for drinking and teeth cleaning. The room was kept spotless by the predominatly male room attendants. We had a TV with full range of international stations, fridge and tea/coffee maker with a range of herbal and fruit teas.
The beach club restaurant provided excellent breakfast buffet and cooked to order eggs and omelets. We ate lunch there on 3 occasions, on one occasion taking one of the booths situated at beachside; the food was excellent and very modestly priced. We ate there once for dinner, on a special barbecue night. The other evenings we ate dinner in the more formal fine dining restaurant, with great Thai and Tappanyaki menus, a small band and the excellent service we came to expect everywhere at this hotel.
Highly recommended and extremely good value.

Pretty hotel
Spent 10 days at the Puri at the end of Jan beginning of Feb this year. I certainly agree with all the comments that the gardens are absolutely beautiful.
Remember this is a 3 star hotel and it is very easy to forget it.

Club rooms – we had a deal where if we booked a bungalow room, we would receive a club room. Firstly if you have this offer, then that is all you receive - the club room but none of the benefits attached to it. i.e. priority check in, flowers and fruit in the room afternoon tea etc. We were the only ones checking in so did not have to wait anyway and being nice to the room maid saw the little pot of flower appear in our room. We were not too bothered about the fruit in the room or the afternoon tea which is only 3USD pp if you want to to have this – a pot of tea and a choice of a slice of cake between 3-5 pm.

Club rooms are the highest category rooms they have (apart from 2 suites which seem to be long term booked). Please bear in mind that there are three floors and there is no lift. The rooms are large and spacious but a bit too dark. I appreciated the dark wood but the lighting was just not right and the trees outside which were wonderful to look at did not help with the light. The mirrors are not very well situated – more of a gentleman’s type room.
Small adequate bathroom with a bath and separate shower - the sink is outside in the corridor which doubles up as a dressing area well sort of
Anyway, I was there to enjoy the weather outside anyway.
There are also a couple of adjoining swimming pools for the use of Club rooms occupants but we did not use them as I found that area a bit too claustrophobic – the other main pools overlooked the open seas and much nicer and I preferred that area.

The breakfasts were lovely, they had all the normal cereal, juice, fresh fruit, pastries, breads, omelet bar, baked beans, sausages, bacon etc. I was quite happy with all the fresh fruit (yummy papayas, watermelon & pineapple!) and the fresh omelet or toast sometime. The ready made tea which they bring around is awful!. Just ask for a pot and extra tea bags if you like strong tea. We found eating upstairs better and downstairs. We tried downstairs once and did not like it - the food was in a sort of corridor and seemed too busy with people walking all the time around you!

We did not eat other meals at the hotel except some snacks here and there. I am sure the food would have been fine but the dining areas were fairly empty and there was no atmosphere at all. There are a lot of bars and restaurant outside anyway and you could get a ride to another place to try different restaurants – taxis are very cheap. We would always get the legal taxis back in the night or late evening and they were not that expensive anyway.

This area around Sanur is very quiet especially in the evenings so if you are looking for a bit lively area then this is not it. i.e. once you have had your dinner, there is really nothing to do….
will load up photos soon.

This hotel had so much to offer, nice setting, lovely pools, staff were friendly and helpful.
The only downside was sunbeds being saved from 6.45. As our room was quite near the beach and pool we were amazed to see people (mainly Germans) putting towels on at this hour. Not only did they put towels on the beds they were going to use, we noticed later they put towels on double the amount , one set in the sun and one set in the shade and they moved from one to the other during the day. There are notices about saving of sunbeds but certain people ignore these. I feel this is because the balinese people are so gentle and don`t want to enforce the rules and cause upset.
We ate a number of our meals at Donalds, just across the road. Always had good food at a reasonable price.
The cultural night in the hotel was really good, the music and dancers were first class. The buffet was rather expensive for Bali but it was the only night we ate in the hotel.
There were a mixture of age groups in the hotel from the very young to the elderly, so the 4 of us in our 60`s didn`t feel out of place.
Yes we would definately go back, maybe upgrading to the Club rooms.
