    Sleepy Sanur is the low-key, family-friendly South-Bali antidote to the drunkenness of Kuta and the upscale gorge of Seminyak. The calm beach is popular with parents with young kids, and with retirees (some with Balinese wives), though people looking for something a bit more happening might consider basing themselves elsewhere.

    Sanur is a very nice place to stay, although it's not busy as Kuta is, there's plenty of restaurants, very cheap and tasteful, cheap accommodations, lots of them beachfront, you can enjoy your meal directly on beaches.

    The beach here is nice and certainly quieter than other parts of the island. That said, it lacks both infrastructure and the charm of other areas -- Jimbaran and Seminyak. Nice enough but somehow fails to differentiate itself vs. other options that either have more natural beauty, culture, or infrastructure.

    Sanur is the original Bali holiday destination, where bohemian's came to set up home in the 50's and 60's. It's hayday for tourism was the 70's when the Hyatt was built there, however the past two decades have seen a shift from Sanur to the more commercial areas of Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Nusa Dua.

    That was then. Sanur is now going through a resurgence dueto the Kuta area being so busy with traffic, tourists, bars and nightclubs, it has now become a true oasis.

    With most of the main resorts located straight on the stunning white beach and restaurants & bars snuggly fitting under the palm trees its easy to see why people are being lured from the bright lights of Kuta...and there's enough shopping on the main thorough-fare to satiate most people's needs.

    For Bungalow-style accommodation checkout the lovely Pavilions, for more facilities head for one of the Santrian properties or Segara Village Resort.

    Sanur is only a short distance from Ubud (uphill) and can easily be combined with that other gem of a destination in Bali.

    With a much slower pace than nearby Kuta, Sanur is great if you want to just get away from it all. The beaches aren't as nice, but because of the offshore wave break they are perfect for watersports such as parasailing and jet skis. The nightlife is much quieter, with live music at restaurants or pubs and pool bars being the primary form of entertainment. We chose Sanur because we wanted to do some diving, and Sanur is the home of Blue Season Bali, which is a very well run dive operation.

    Really chilled out, the beach is still nice and no waves crashing in, you don't get hassled as much here it seems.

    Nice mellow town on the SE coast of Bali. The requisite string of beachfront hotels from swanky to simple like the paved pleasant beack walk (runs about 2 miles). Water is pleasant and the beach scenic, you have your pick of willing masseurs to rub the tension from you body as you sip your fruit smoothie.
    More inland there is a strip of shopping with some higher end clothing and local goods down to the basic wares you see everywhere (wooden genitals anyone?) Several nice dining options, great gelato!

Description

Sanur is Bali's oldest upscale resort area and is a mature beach-side town. Despite the abundance of restaurants and accommodation, it has a quiet and relaxed feel to it. In general terms, it is more expensive than Kuta but cheaper than Seminyak. Sanur tends to appeal most to middle-aged and older families, especially Europeans.
