Where to Stay in Sanur Bali

Table of Contents

Planning a trip to Sanur Bali and haven’t decided where to stay? Sanur is one of the best places to stay in Bali. It’s one of the smaller, quieter towns and has many options for accommodation in Sanur.

We’ve been to Bali a ton of times over 20 odd years and Sanur quickly became our favourite in the past 5 years. In fact, we are planning to move to Bali in Sanur as expats within the next year or so as I mention here.

Bali Accommodation in Sanur

Once you start your research you may find there are two distinct areas and places to stay in Sanur. Locals and tourists alike talk about staying in either the southern end of Sanur or the northern end of Sanur.

Debates even take place on which area is the “best” in Sanur, North or South? Like most things in life it depends on your perspective, likes and dislikes and what you want from your next holiday or vacation in your search for the best hotels in Sanur Bali.

Then there is also the option of beachside Sanur or not. Beachside meaning the area between the By-pass Road and Sanur beach. You’ll find a concentration of Bali Villas on the western side of the By-pass should you require a villa in Sanur.

That said there are plenty of villas in Sanur on the eastern side and beachside of Sanur too.

Sanur Hotels

Sanur Bali hotels are dotted along the coast of Sanur for that ultimate beach holiday.  You will also find hotels along the three main Jalan’s (streets) Jl. Danau Tamblingam, Jl. Danau Poso, or Jl. Cemara.

Plus down the many Gang’s (alleys) you’ll also find a Sanur Bali Hotel or two, together with Villas, Guesthouses, Homestays and Hostels.

Most of the accommodation in Sanur and eateries in Sanur have free Wifi.
