... feet we swapped the beach for the main pool and after a dip decided that 11.25am is a perfectly acceptable time to start drinking on your honeymoon so perched ourselves on two of the pool bar stools in the water at the swim-up bar and ordered two Bali Hai (local beers)...followed by another two! After all we were celebrating :) We must have been in particularly celebratory mood because when one of the hotel staff came to talk to us about special honeymoon dining packages we decided ...
Day one: As planned we arrived in Padangbai from Gili T just before 1pm. The ride back was much rougher than the ride out and we were glad we spent the extra dollars on a top-notch ferry. On arrival the sun was brilliant, the humidity thick and we were hungry and more than a little lost. Our plan was to pick up a rental car in Padanbai and head northeast up the coast of Bali towards the general area of Amed. We'd stop for lunch along the way and maybe do ...
... in stern section of the boat were drenched. A few more sharp Smacks on the water and a couple of folks were looking green. Alan and I were in probably the best position we could be in, nearly directly behind the captain and we were drenched. Alan pulled his electronics out of his non-protected day pack and we got them safely, and dryly, into the dry bag. More slosh, and even harder bounces. What should have been a one hour ferry ride was going to take ...
... built up and the beach isn't as nice but it's a lot quieter if you want to get away from the hassles and there are some absolutely amazing hotels there. Craig was very taken with one particular hotel that had raised sun decks out in the ocean. There are still plenty of restaurants, shops and bars to keep you entertained.
... ate. Everyone gets it eventually. I’m just waiting for my turn. The music was thumping and drinks were flowing. And the best part was that six people from different parts of the world were all having a blast in each others company.
The music seemed to fade, eyes closed and the lights went out. The next day Danny Boy, The Saffa and I were up at 7am and in the water by 745am. It was low tide and tricky to get out into the deeper water. There are tons of rocks that you have ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Griya Santrian Sanur
I have just returned from 2 weeks at the lovely hotel Griya Santrian with my husband and friends. Originally we had booked into Puri Santrian, on arrival we were informed that they had overbooked and alternative accommodation had been organised at their sister property Griya Santrian. Although we were originally disappointed, we were very pleased with the upgrade to a deluxe room and the offer to return to Puri in 4 days. We enjoyed Griya so much that we requested to stay there for the remainder of our holiday. The staff were very obliging and quickly met our request and allowed us to stay in our deluxe room.
Go Back To Bali
Griya Santrian - Sanur Beach. Great place with friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Much more populated than other hotels in the same community. GO BACK TO BALI! The marvelous people there need your support and tourism business. Fill the hotels and restaurants there so there the lively vacation spirit re-energizes the place.
Wedding Day Bliss
We were lucky enough to get married in beautiful Bali on August 15 2005. It was the best experience either of us have ever had. The whole day was relaxing, we were still in the pool and hour before the wedding.
Our wedding planner (Bali Weddings International) and the staff at the Griya Santrian did a beautiful job setting up for the ceremony and the reception. We could not have asked for anything better.
The entire night the staff waited on us and our 27 family and friends, calling everybody by name and making us all feel like royalty.
I would highly recommend getting married, honeymooning or just having a relaxing holiday at the Griya Santrian Hotel.
My husband and I can't wait to return again as soon as possible.
Just back from a week at the Griya Santrian.... Quite disappointed in the room - had booked a superior beach wing room thinking it would like the picture advertised on the hotel's websiste and arrived to what looked like the garden wing, eventhough we were assured it was superior beach wing room. Staff generously (??) moved us to a 'deluxe' which is what the superior beach wing looks like on the website. The beds are extremely hard, the air con did not work properly eventhough it was checked several times. The amenities are spartan.
Great place to stay
Had a fantastic stay at the Griya Santrian. Nice, clean rooms with a/c and a balcony. Plenty of places to eat along the beachfront & on the main road outside the hotel.
Only downside - had the hard sell from the Manager for the honeymoon meal set up. Also overpriced taxi from the airport. Booked with a local driver for the return journey and paid half. When we left we were told that the hotel had gone ahead and booked their taxi for us - that was their loss.
That small niggle aside, this Hotel is well worth going to. Our favourite part was the secluded 2nd swimming pool - got you away from the noisy tourists and into a peaceful suntrap later in the afternoon!
What an amazing place! This was our first visit to Bali and we are hoping to return as soon as possible. The Griya is perfectly situated in the middle of Sanur with restaurants and bars right on the door step. The staff in the hotel go out of their way to please you. Its always spotlessly clean and the rooms are impressive. The restaurant in the hotel was so good we ate there a few times and it was reasonably priced. the fish BBQ on the beach was great!
A place so good, you'd like to keep a secret!
We have travelled to Bali over a 20 year period and have stayed around 17 times, in Kuta and Sanur. We have a young family and the 'Griya' is our favourite. We love the beach in front of the Griya Santrian- it's clean, has white sand, and you can see the magnificent view of the ocean from the hotel pool. The swim up bar is the best- good drinks, icecreams for the kids, and friendly staff. You could sit there all day and soak up the sun. The markets nearby are cheap, not crowded and not too touristy. The restaurants at the hotel and along the beachfront are more authentic than the more populated areas in Bali. Superior beach rooms or deluxe rooms are the best. But dont' tell anyone- it's a secret!
I would recommend this hotel to anybody. We spent two wonderful weeks here and can find nothing to complain about. The rooms are large and clean, the beach pool is beautiful with a wonderful swim up bar, the garden pool is quiet and peaceful.
The food was all excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful.
