We extended our stay at the Gangsa Villas in Sanur because it was so beautiful and we were treated like royalty. Upon arriving, our airport driver - Udi - noticed that Katie's birthday was that day. He confirmed with her but said nothing more. That night when we returned to the villas, the entire staff joined in a rousing rendition of "happy birthday" and presented Ibu Katie with a special cake with her name on it! It was wondrous to be treated so well.
The grounds are quiet, although families sometimes stay in the 2 and 3 bedroom villas, the staff is exceptional, the kitchen is excellent, and the accommodations are luxurious in an understated way.
The car service was available every time we wanted to get to the beach or to shopping or to dinner and the staff was always charming and helpful with cold water and lemongrass scented towels that were chilled for our return to the car. Wonderful.
This trip was just my partner and me and our intent was to relax and see a bit of Bali. The Gangsa made that possible.
PS: we visited the Kayumanis in Ubud and it appeared more luxurious, quieter, and with closer access to the town of Ubud's shopping area. Next time: we intend to stay in BOTH!
- 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
