After nearly a month in Bali we’ve staying in a number of hotels – some luxury villas, some modern boutique hotels – but until now we haven’t stayed in an authentically designed Balienese hotel! Nesa Sanur is such a beautiful property it literally took my breath way as we started walking inside.
The hotel is made up of two different types of accommodation. There are hotel rooms (that overlook the pool) and then there are a handful of bales. In Bali, “Bales” are pavilions or bungalows. These stand-alone structures are sort of like private villas, but without the private yards.
The bales at Nesa Sanur look like temples. The doors, the pillars, the ceilings – the attention to details and designs of these buildings is spectacular! We stayed in “Bale Dangin” which was a one bedroom unit. Our front porch had a table and chairs and it was surrounded by beautiful garden. The trees were large enough that we felt like we had more than enough privacy while sitting at the table.
Inside you enter into a foyer. Another table and chairs can be found here, the perfect spot to throw my purse and camera after a long day of sightseeing. To the left was the bedroom. Air conditioned, king-sized bed, mini fridge and TV. Everything you need for a comfortable stay! This room was particularly cool, which was so refreshing after visiting the beach!
On the other side of the bale was a dressing room and bathroom. The dressing room had plenty of space for suitcases, a wardrobe and vanity with spacious drawers. It was so nice to have this much space to store our belongs! Just off the dressing room was a bathroom with a huge walk-in rain shower.
My favourite part of Nesa Sanur was the pool. The blue tiles really pop against the orange buildings, and there were plenty of sun loungers to relax on. They even have a massage table beside the pool so you can enjoy spa treatments poolside! This is where I chose to have my complimentary welcome massage and it was wonderful.
The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, but there are two warungs less than 20 metres from the entrance. The one behind the hotel had particularly good chicken stays, and the one in front of the hotel is where the hotel breakfast is located.
Sanur is home to so many amazing restaurants, and every place we wanted to visited was within walking distance to Nesa Sanur! The location was also perfect for the beach. You just cross the road to the right and follow a pathway to the sand – in less than five minutes you’ll be enjoying some of the most beautiful views in Bali (see below)!
