Once a tranquil fishing village, Sanur’s 9 kilometer of coastline southeast of Denpasar is now lined with upmarket luxury hotels and serene private bungalows in leafy compounds along a well-maintained stretch of white sand protected by a gentle, reef-sheltered lagoon. Sanur is smaller, quieter, prettier, safer and more relaxed than Kuta 15 km to the southwest. Most all resort and hotels, which have made Sanur famous face the sea. Despite the throngs of tourists, Sanur still retains its Balinese character with no beggars, homeless people or illegal moneychangers. Its mature trees, shady lanes, ancient vine-draped coral walled temples, banjar meeting halls sitting alongside extensive hotel properties give Sanur a distinct park like atmosphere. Evenings reveal elegant and romantic settings just steps away from the ocean waves. This urbanized yet dignified and well-managed coastal resort area has little traffic congestion along its main street. Jalan Bypass, the busy highway running just west of Sanur, gives visitors quick and easy access to other points on the island. The airport is just a 40-minute drive to the south, minimizing travel for your guests.
