Travel Blogs from Sanur
Wir sind fast da - nur noch eine kleine Schiffstour trennt uns von den Waranen. Aber von vorne an: Mittwoch mittag ging es los von München nach Singapore und mit kurzem Aufenthalt weiter nach Denpasar/Bali im indonesischen Archipel Es hat sich einiges getan seitdem ich vor zwei Jahren das letzte Mal hier war. Ein nagelneuer Flughafen, der aber zu …
With today being the last full day of our Honeymoon we wanted to maximise our sunbathing and relaxation time, so were really disappointed to wake up and find it raining! We've been so lucky with the weather in Bali to this point. Hopeful that the rain would pass we set out to the Cat & Fiddle for a nice cooked breakfast and to read the papers. …
Today was our second day in a row of adventures out and about. After a busy day diving yesterday we were slightly tempted to revert back to lounging by the pool, but we'd already booked the car so were up and ready to go at 7am. The car was dropped off without issue and we set off; first stop Tanah Lot temple approx. 29km away. We had been a bit …
Much as we had enjoyed our three days of relaxing we were both looking forward to our day out on the dive boat. Crystal Divers arrived for one of their team to pick us up at the hotel at 7.30am and at the dive shop we met up with Taka, our divemaster for the day, and John and Tana who were also diving. There isn't really any decent diving directly …
The story behind today's title will all be revealed in good time...in the meantime you ent be surprised to hear that today was a day very akin to Sunday. We had a nice leisurely start; breakfast at a cafe along a side street from the beach where Dan continued in vain to try and find decent sausages but today ended up with a sort of battered hot-dog …

Historical Traveler Reviews Puri Santrian Sanur
Arrived at the Hotel at 2pm after the two flights from the UK. First impressions were excellent. We had booked the Santrian Club Rooms, so we were checked in immediately and on a very personal basis.
This is a wonderful hotel. From the moment we got there we were treated superbly. Security is v. tight on the front gate after the recent bombs, we got upgraded to the Beach Front rooms, nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. Rooms are large & exceedingle comfortable. The place is spotless, including the beach but wait until you see the pool including the swim up sunken bar. I'd never leave. We booked rooms only & found this a great way of doing it as could use the restaurant as & when we wished, but also use the various cafes etc. on the beach front that are half the price. Never had any problem from staff about bringing in your own drinks either from the shops.
Brilliant hotel and staff
we were moved here from the grand hotel, this hotel was great, everything clean ,well maintained a credit to the very freindly staff we could not fault anything cant wait to return.
We stayed at the Puri Santrian for our honeymoon in Sept '05. We upgraded to the Santrian club room. Our room was on the 3rd floor right hand side, and as previously mentioned by a reviewer this gets the sun late afternoon. Room had a four poster bed and all usual amentities. Balcony was large with sun longer, chairs and table. Hotel itself was clean, staff are friendly and courteous. Downsides are the lack of sun loungers by the pools and on the beach. Most days guests are left wandering around trying to find spare beds. Also get hassle from locals offering massages, this seems to be ignored by hotel security. Breakfast is average, as is afternoon tea. The hotel restaurant at the front entrance has excellent Thai food though. Sanur is a little laid back for us, lots of restaurants and bars but no atmosphere and most places close at 10pm. We got very cheap taxi's almost every evening to Kuta, about £2 each way. Overall, nice hotel would recommend Santrian Club rooms.
We stayed at the Puri Santrian from 07 - 18 June 2005 and found it to be an excellently run, comfortable hotel. We may be a little biased as we were upgraded to a suite, but the other rooms we saw looked spacious and comfortable. The style of the rooms is best described as 'slightly faded colonial' but all mod cons including efficient aircon are available.
We stayed at the Puri Santrian for one week in June 2005.
The Puri Santrian is a nice hotel, located on the south end of Sanur. I stayed at the Santrian club, which promises bigger rooms, more luxury and an extra swimming pool, just for the occupants of those 60 or so rooms. My roomnumber was 377 and that is actually one of the best, cos you will be on the third floor on the right side and have sun at the end of the day. If you dont do stairs, dont forget to mention it!
My husband and I booked 11 nights in a bungalow room and fell in love with the resort and the Sanur area. The Puri Santrian is set in a lush garden, right on the beach, and is staffed by the friendliest resort staff I have ever met! The spa (i had a full body massage for 1 hr, $30 US!) is newish and top-notch. The you can eat at the Beach Club restaurant or at one or two other places and charge back to your room -- all excellent local and international dishes, very attractive and very fresh ingredients. We were amazed at how often they clean the place -- everywhere you look someone is sweeping up coconut tree leaves, raking the beach, etc. The pools are lovely and a nice alternative to the water, which is clearest in the early morning -- lots of little fishes you can see there. The room was very nice, and the buffet breakfast excellent with a person making eggs/omlettes and cereals and lots of local fruit and other dishes. I loved this place and hope to return. It was the nicest looking resort on the beach!
Hotel was nice and tidy we paid an upgrade for a beach wing room but all the other standard rooms (which we found out two days before leaving) were nicely refurbish, had a TV and a NEW shower our room was lacking in everything.
Relaxation at it's best
We stayed here for a week in 2003 because we wanted to support the Balinese after the bombing, and we find them such a gentle and lovely people. This complex of garden rooms and hotel was inviting, relaxing and clean and friendly. the pool is right by the beach, restaurants (2) are good and the breakfasts always freshly prepared. We had a hire car but it's only a short walk to other local eating places, shopping etc.
The whole stay was very relaxing and I will stay there again. Deni.
