Simple but comfortable, the Natur, despite its old age, has benefitted from various renovations. It offers a very pleasant environment, right on the seafront.
In the centre of Sanur, the hotel is 15 miles from Ngurah Rai airport (15/20 minutes), 8 miles from Denpasar (10/15 minutes) and 12 miles from Kuta beach (20/25 minutes).
The hotel does not have a kid's club.
Spread along the length of Sanur beach, the Natur has a peaceful location in the heart of a 2.5-acre park. The hotel is no longer young (1965) but has had various renovations, the last of which was in 1999. It benefits from a total of 65 rooms spread through 9 bungalows and two small 1-storey buildings. Sadly the hotel does not have any ground or water sport equipment, but does have a lovely pool, a spa (jacuzzi, sauna, masssage) and Internet access. In short, this is an excellent hotel for a 3*.
Large bay window, white ecru tiling, light wood furniture.... the standard rooms offer simple and pleasant decor. Facilities: satellite television (8 channels), air conditioning (slightly past it), well equipped mini bar, telephone. 24 hour room service.
Guests have access to two restaurants, on either side of the path running the length of the beach. The seafood restaurant, right on the beach, is excellent and boasts a large covered terrace. It can accommodate up to 280 guests (it is open to non-guests). The food is good. On the menu: 11 international dishes, 12 Indonesian dishes. The lack of choice of seafood is lamentable.
Sanur beach is a public beach. The beach has suffered greatly from the tourism development seen under President Suharto. The coral reef has been damaged, changing currents and wave patterns. Thus, various repair works have been neccesary. The beach which was in the past very beautiful has been disfigured by cement blocks. Directly at the foot of the hotel there is no beach but a jetty. Nevertheless, on the left there is a beach of approximatley 2,625 ft X 50 ft. The water here is very clear and adequate for fishing and canoeing. The water is less suited to swimming at low tide, as the water is no deeper than the top of the thighs for about 655 ft (or up to the reef, after which point bathing is strongly discouraged).
