“Great value”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

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?

This was an absolute delight to all the senses! From the pleasant Porch Cafe walking past the veranda and through the arch to a beautiful small tropical garden with pool with frangipani's floating in it – this was a treat. I’m not a fan of big hotel’s (you could be anywhere in the world) and really like a more traditional, smaller style of accommodation – this ticked all the boxes. Although in the centre of Sanur it was very quiet.

Breakfast in the Porch Cafe was just lovely, fresh fruit, eggs, toast – all the trimmings.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all very friendly.

I can’t recommend Flashback’s highly enough, although I shouldn’t speak too highly of it as it may be fully booked out when next I return!!

Thank you to all the staff for making our stay in Sanur special.

Room Tip: We stayed in two rooms that shared a bathroom - which was great. All the rooms would be quiet - but...

I traveled alone and had never really done that before. Flashbacks was the perfect place to stay for a nervous first time alone traveler. Staff are professional and friendly with excellent English. The Porch Cafe attached had good espresso and excellent food. The beds were very comfortable and I deeply appreciated the fresh flower petals dropped onto my bed every evening. There is an excellent couch on a cool verandah where I could read a selection of good books while I was adjusting to the heat and humidity. The small but adequate pool was salt water, and exquisitely cool. I missed it when I left and would definitely go back. I could live there!

Room Tip: If you wanted more privacy and room, there were lovely little rooms apart from the main building.

Stayed recently at Flashbacks in the upstairs room ( with kitchen and lounge). I have stayed in Sanur quite a bit and will always stay here from now on. Great value for money, clean, great relaxed atmosphere, small pool but its clean & refreshing. Terrific staff and the food was excellent at the porch cafe. Close to all the action but quiet at night. Loved it !!!!

Room Tip: Upstairs room has plenty of space with Lounge dining and kichen and air con in the bedroom.

Nice...scratch that....very nice place. I could only stay the one night as they were fully booked but nice place. As a backpacker I felt it was upmarket but good value for money. If you are traveling with your girlfriend.wife.significant other, best not get cheap and make her and check in here. The next morning after a fab breakfast attached the staff helped me find another place just down the road. Would definitely stay here again.

I researched quite a few hotels and all the other places in Sanur seems to be a lot more expensive. Flashbacks is really nice, beautiful room and bathroom, good breakfast, friendly helpful staff, small but nice and clean pool, nice area to hang out. Good location.Think it is very good value. The only negative is that their restaurant is a bit overpriced, stay there find dinner somewhere else.

Exactly what I was expecting - small, intimate and friendly accomodation right in the centre of Sanur. Easy access to the beach and more importantly, Hardy's just up the road! Breakfast was awesome - I'm still dreaming of the gorgeous fruit platter and home-made ciabatta toast. I had a few meals at the Porch Cafe which were terrific. Plus there are tons of exciting cafes within strollling distance. Next time I'm in Sanur I'll definitely be staying here. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Air conditioned bungalows are the way to go.
