This place was so cute. It is very small with less than 10 rooms/cottages, set in a mini oasis with beautiful tropical plants and a little plunge pool. The staff are super friendly and helpful; they let us check in a little early and booked the fast boat to Lembongan for us with a smile. The breakfast is pretty reasonable given it is included in the cheap room rates - it includes bread & jam, balinese coffee and a variety of fruit or fruit juice. Other than that I wasn't a huge fan of the cafe but there are plenty of other options only a short walk away.
We stayed in a twin cottage with AC which was very comfortable with a lovely rainfall shower head - the bathroom was done out very nicely.
The main problem we had though was with noise:
Firstly, some of the other guests decided the pool area was for their private use and decided to have a party - very late at night. The cottages aren't well insulated so it kept us up very late. I'm not sure what the staff could have done or if it would have helped with these guys, it's such a shame that awful guests affected our 2 night stay so much.
Secondly, the restaurant across the street has loud/live music playing until quite late at night which also affected our sleep. Note we stayed on a Friday & Saturday night so perhaps it is limited to those nights?
Coming from the solitude of a place outside of Ubud we were disappointed with the noise here but perhaps it is something that goes with staying in Sanur?
