My wife and I have just returned from staying at the Besakih. We have stayed here many times and every time we leave I say " next time we will stay somewhere different" The fact is we did stay at the Griya Santrian next door once but, we just get drawn to staying at the Besakih because the staff are so friendly and the location is so good. The rooms are as basic as you can get and that includes the newly refurbished ones. The rooms do get cleaned everyday and you get clean sheets everyday. The breakfast is not a buffet and the choice is very limited.There really are no luxuries here. There is nothing pretentious about the Besakih, they know they are not a four or five star and they don't try to be which is evident in their prices. The meals, drinks etc. are very cheap in fact cheaper than most of the restaurants on the main street.
The Besakih has two wonderful swimming pools. One of the pools is located right on the edge of the beach, this is a great spot to relax and watch the day go by.
You will find that many people staying at the Besakih have stayed there before. I was speaking to one guest who said it was the 38th time he has stayed there. The hotel is generally frequented by mature guests. I really don't think the Besakih is good for the younger or party animal types.
If I do return to Sanur I am sure I will scour the internet looking for places to stay and probably finish up staying here again.
