Resorts in Sanur Bali are sometimes called Sanur hotels which can be confusing when booking your Sanur Bali accommodation. This is due to the definitions of resorts and hotels. Resorts are accommodation, restaurants, bars, swimming pools, gyms, kids clubs, water sports and even entertainment. Hotels are generally just a room and very few, if any amenities.
Often in Bali, a property is called a hotel when in fact it is a resort if using the definition above. Some of the properties below are called Sanur hotels, however, they are in fact Sanur resorts.
The accommodation in Sanur varies from cheap and cheerful to high-end luxury resorts. The Sanur Bali hotels and resorts cater to all types of travellers from backpackers, to families, couples and even extended families. If you are a part of a large group there are plenty of Sanur Villas to choose from too, some within the grounds of resorts.

The Fairmont Sanur sits right on Sanur beach. The resort is set within 4 hectares of beautiful gardens and has water features dotted throughout.
All the accommodation are luxury suites, some of the largest I’ve had the pleasure of staying in Bali. Think ensuites and massive enclosed (with flyscreens) outdoor balconies the size of bedrooms. Every in-room amenity you can think of and beautiful views stretching out towards the beachfront, making this property one of the best beach resorts in Bali.
And as notorious as Bali and Asia is for rock hard beds, you’ll feel like you are sleeping on a cloud in the Fairmont’s superior bedding. As you would expect from one of the best resorts in Bali.
If you particularly want seclusion and privacy, then the 3-bedroom Fairmont villas within the grounds of the resort might be more to your liking. For more information about the Fairmont Villas click here.
Did I mention the spectacular infinity pool that overlooks this popular Sanur beach resort? Relax around the pool in the double sunbeds or break up your day with a trip to the world-class Day Spa.
Children and families are welcome at the Fairmont with a kid’s club and children’s swimming pool within the resort.
For a truly relaxing, pampered holiday, the Fairmont Sanur should definitely be on your list.
Hyatt Regency Sanur
This iconic Sanur resort opened in November 1973 as the Bali Hyatt. Bali’s first international hotel built to reflect the Indonesian culture in style and décor closed her doors 40 years later in late 2013.
Fast forward to December 2018, after lengthy delays she was reborn as Hyatt Regency Bali. Major renovations have taken place whilst still holding onto her old Balinese charm visitors to Bali love.
This premium resort is spread across nine hectares and is set in beautiful tropical gardens. The gardens span across the 500 meters of the Sanur beachfront.
Throughout the resort, you’ll find open-air restaurants and bars overlooking the stunning views of the Indian ocean. The pizzas from the wood-fired ovens are arguably some of the best in Bali. There is also a piano lounge if you are wanting a quieter evening.
The Hyatt Regency Bali houses 3 swimming pools, including a children’s pool, 24-hour fitness centre, kids club and Shankha Day Spa.
This Sanur accommodation opened in 2015 and is located midway along the main street of Sanur Jl. Tamblingan. The Maya Sanur Resort & Spa stretches right through to the Sanur beachfront placing it in the category of Sanur Bali luxury resorts.
While this luxury Bali beach resort is a kid and family-friendly it mainly attracts couples due to the opulence and state-of-the-art facilities.
With spacious rooms and contemporary design, all rooms overlook the main pool or “lagoon” with ground-level rooms having direct access. A gorgeous second family pool is located overlooking the Sanur beach Bali.
For total privacy and seclusion, ritzy beachfront pool suites are available, featuring marble bathrooms and up-to-the-minute facilities.
Dine at one of the two on-site restaurants. Reef is upmarket with sort-after individual pavilions that appear to “float” in the pool. Food to eat at Reef includes burgers, salads through to themed buffet evenings.
Graze stretches along and dominates Jl. Tamblingan, the main street of Sanur. The focus at Graze is fresh and small plates for grazing. You can read more about Graze in my free downloadable in my Ultimate Sanur Foodie Guide here.
