We had a great time at Gangsa: wonderful large villa (no. 1), great service and very quiet location. Maybe a bit secluded: the so-called private beach is not private and not close. You'll be better off staying at the villa and enjoying the private pool.

After staying in Kayumanis Ubud and as Sanur was the only place in Bali that was not under the influence of the rain season westerly winds we decided to try the Gangsa. Contacted directly the hotel which gave us a good discounted price. They picked us up at our previous hotel and the moemnt you step into the car you feel Kayumanis service with a relaxing music and the cookies in the car and complimentary drinks on the way. Once you arrive they treat you directly by your name and ensure that you have an enjoyable experience in Bali. Houses are excellent as described in the previous review. Used a lot their bicycles to get around Sanur as it has a good bicycle path along the beach. Did not try out their beachclub as it seems to be in a not so good region of Sanur but as we had the biciycles just rented some chairs in the best region of the beach for 5.000 rupiah each.
Breakfasts at the villa are excellent and as always very well presented, the same happening also with the afternoon teas which come with some bali cookies.
The rooms are extremely clean and they will clean your room twice a day.
Overall enjoyed the stay and the staff was always helpfull and ready to help us in any way they could.
Will definetely come back to the place.

The Gangsa is tucked away in a quiet back alley in Sanur, which is about 25 mins ride from Ngurah Rai Airport. There are a total of 11 Villas, of one to three bedrooms all named after musical instrutment. I was told that they are part of the Kayumanis Group.

Facilities in the hotel are one restaurant, a Spa and Children playroom, complimentary wireless access, shuttle to sanur area and Kuta( Kuta only 11am, 3pm & 6 pm). No main pool in hotel.
Walkway leading to each villa are designed like a garden path which is quite nice for a evening stroll.

Each villa is housed within a walled compound with a main entrance that resemble those of a temple. Each villa is a 2 storey build with a bedroom below and a study room above. In addition, there is a kitchen, dinning and living area, pool with deck chair, bathroom with outdoor rain shower(not visible from 2nd floor of neighbouring villa) and bathtub. The study room on the second floor can be converted to a spa room if you request to have your massage in villa

In the kitchen there is a fridge, microwave, cooker; in the living area there is a TV and a CD/DVD player where you can enjoy your own music while gazing star in the pool.
The one bedroom villa's pool is about 9m by 5m which has water jet like those in a jacuzzi tub. All non-alcoholic drink in mini bar are free and replenish everyday. They also provide daily complimentary afternoon tea with Balinese cake.

As it is not beside the beach or on a hill there are no view at all. What you see are trees and trees. Not a bad idea if you are looking for some privacy which the trees amply provide. Birds and squirrel are a common sight over here.

Food are good and massage are simple. All reasonably priced for a hotel standard.

The most amazing thing about staying here is how the hotel staff make you feel that you are in your own home. They greet you by your name and will go all their way to make you feel at home. They are always sincere and warm, we have never feel that they are working for the tips.
Most of all, their housekeeping are superb. Our villa are always clean and tidy everytime we came back from outside. They even clean up the villa when we went for a 30 mins afternoon tea in their restaurant.

Overall we totally enjoy our stay here and will come back again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The term 'gangsa', refers to the keyed instrument that plays resonant melodies in a traditional Balinese orchestra. The choice of name is a conscious effort to preserve the island's unique culture trough tourism. As one of Bali's original all-villa properties, the gangsa is hidden away down a quiet back lane in the revered priestly village of Sanur and is only a 2km journey from a white sandy beachfront. It is resplendent of a traditional community composed of 11 private villa units featuring 1, 2 & 3 bedrooms. Each spaciously appointed villa is secluded within a charming landscaped compound highlighted by a personal swimming pool and Balinese lounging pavilion that exposes the delights of tropical outdoor living. The interior decor concept is inspired by the artistic heritage of the Balinese people. ... more   less
