Take a look at the best luxury hotels in Sanur.
Karmagali Boutique Suites is a charming upscale hotel owned and operated by a French couple who offer personalized service. Free perks like the gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea, and ginger water with cookies by the lap pool are just some of the thoughtful extras. Rooms consist of five super stylish one-bedroom suites and a single two-bedroom teak joglo house. Decor features thatched roofs, artistic interiors with marble accents, and intricate carvings and local artwork on display. There is no restaurant but room service is available. Bicycles to borrow and Wi-Fi are free. It's located a 10-minute walk from downtown Sanur and a 15-minute walk from Sindhu Beach. Note that a two-night minimum booking is required and only guests ages 12 and up are permitted. Another option in the area (without any restrictions) worth considering is the Sudamala Suites & Villas.
There aren't too many high-end villa options in Sanur, though Kayamunis makes a convincing argument for sacrificing beach proximity for upscale digs. With only 11 villas on the grounds, this is an intimate, quiet escape that works for romantic couples and families alike. All villas come with private pools, outdoor living areas, separate bedrooms with private bathrooms, and butlers that are shared with other units. Keep in mind that some villas are more modern than others. The garden- and tree-clad grounds hold a lovely restaurant that serves authentic Indonesian fare, as well as a tranquil spa. A free on-call shuttle runs to Sanur and the beach club, which is a blessing because Kayamunis isn't within walking distance of either. For something closer to the buzz, opt for Mahagiri Villas instead.
The four-pearl Klumpu Bali Resort is one of Sanur's most charming boutique properties. Down a quiet lane off of Sanur's main tourist strip, the hotel's eight lumbung-style villas are tucked into lovely gardens. Interiors include elegant Balinese decor and each unit features perks like turndown service, free and fast Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and spacious patios. A free afternoon tea service is a delight, as are the free 15-minute welcome massages in the spa cabana. The hotel also has a small restaurant (serving a generous, free breakfast) and a fleet of free bikes, plus a lovely garden pool. There aren't many options like it in town, but travelers wanting to spend a little less while gaining beach proximity could check out Respati Beach Hotel instead, though it lacks the Balinese atmosphere here.
This upscale all-villa property is a privacy-seekers dream, and the 17 modern villas are the star of the show here. All are surrounded by high walls, and include massive outdoor spaces with terraces and private pools. Flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi come standard, and configurations range from one to three bedrooms, making this a family-friendly option. As of 2017, a new, more tranquil spa has been opened, and there's a basic fitness center. Dining is excellent at the hotel's terrace restaurant, and the grounds are some of the most atmospheric in Sanur. The hotel runs a free shuttle to its beach club, and bikes are free to borrow. Alternatively, the Kayamunis Sanur Private Villa & Spa is a slight step up style-wise, though it's location is far less convenient.
An intimate boutique property with style to spare, Kejora Suites is one of Sanur's most attractive four-pearl hotels. The 26 rooms are spacious and quiet, and each comes with its own Wi-Fi router, excellent pillow-top beds, gorgeous bathrooms, and private terraces. There's a stunning courtyard pool that's ringed by sun-seeking guests all day long, and dining takes place at The Glass Door, one of Sanur's most popular restaurants. It's less than a five-minute walk to the hotel's private beach, and facilities like a spa and full-service beach club are available at Segara Village, the sister property that's a 10-minute walk away. Travelers wanting their resort amenities on site might prefer that property, though it's slightly less chic.
The Maya Sanur Resort & Spa is a 103-room boutique hotel that's one of the most chic options in town. From its environmentally friendly ethos to its eye-catching art and contemporary style, this luxury hotel is refined but light-hearted. Rooms are tricked out with everything from free Wi-Fi and luxe soaking tubs to private infinity pools and espresso machines in the suites. There are three dining options, including an excellent Japanese restaurant, and the gorgeous spa makes unwinding a delight. Happy hours at Tree Bar, overlooking the beach, are a popular go-to spot for travelers from across Sanur, and there are multiple pools. If you prefer a more traditional take on luxury, it's worth considering the Fairmont Sanur down the coast instead, though rates there will be higher.
With its serene grounds, chic dining, beautiful pools, and pampering wellness amenities, this Fairmont impresses, and then impresses again. Even so, the 120 villas and suites are the true stars of the show. They're massive and tricked out with contemporary Balinese decor, plus soundsystems, flat-screen TVs, huge balconies, and spa-worthy bathrooms. Luxe bath products and soaking tubs only sweeten the deal. The breakfast buffet is exceptional, with local and international fare in abundance, and the hotel's spa is a tranquil escape in an already relaxed resort. Photographers can be hired to capture romantic moments, and everything from subdued local music to a rentable Rolls Royce add to the luxe package. There's not much that matches this Fairmont in Sanur, but travelers who prefer contemporary style might consider the Maya Sanur instead.
This three-and-a-half-pearl property has all of the bells and whistles needed for a tropical family vacation. Each of the 84 contemporary suites includes one to three bedrooms, plus a full kitchen, air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and a DVD player. The pool buzzes with families all day, and movie nights are a hit as well. There's also a waterslide and massive kids' club. A restaurant serves Indonesian and international fare day and night, and there's a spa for adults looking for a little pampering. The location along a busy highway far from the beach isn't ideal, but suites are quiet and the hotel runs a free shuttle to central Sanur. Travelers preferring to be on the beach might consider Puri Santrian instead, though it's larger, lacks the kid-friendly features, and some rooms are worn.
The four-pearl Sudamala Suites & Villas is located in the quiet resort town of Sanur, a five-minute walk from the beach. All 34 rooms are decked in beautiful Indonesian woods and traditional designs, and feature minibars, air-conditioning, and flat-screen TVs, as well as private furnished terraces. Spacious bathrooms are equipped with rainfall showers, many of which open to the outdoors. Some rooms also have pool access. A trendy art gallery, steak-and-pasta restaurant, and a full-service spa are key features, and Wi-Fi and parking are both free. The hotel also has set-ups on the beach for guests. For a proper beachfront alternative, Griya Santrian has similar amenities at comparable prices on the northern end of Sanur.
Located in the center of Sanur, within a five-minute walk of restaurants and the beach, the 19-room Kamuela Sanur is upscale and serene. Large, stylish suites have free Wi-Fi, LCD TVs, and outdoor hot tubs, while villas feature between one and three rooms, private plunge pools, and outdoor living areas with kitchenettes. Some furniture, though, is showing wear and tear. The pool is a pleasant spot, complete with about a dozen loungers and waiter service, and there is free shuttle service to the beach, where the hotel has a few chairs and umbrellas that guests can use free of charge. The restaurant is popular with guests and non-guests alike, and serves tasty international cuisine in a charming greenhouse with sidewalk seating. The hotel’s peaceful atmosphere is great for couples, but families may prefer the more lively Sanur Paradise Plaza Suites.
