Amy Adejokun Section editor

Right at the heart of Sanur and directly overlooking the beach, this family hotel offers very decent facilities, especially if you're staying in one of the villas as these have their very own private swimming pool. However, the amenities provided in the rooms located on the upper floors of the hotel's main building are much more modest. Don't be misled when it comes to some of the facilities advertised: the spa, for example, should instead be referred to as a simple massage room and the gym leaves a lot to be desired. The same goes for the restaurant, which is rather unambitious.

    Location 6.4 /10

    The hotel is located in the historic seaside resort of Sanur, which was the first place to develop tourism in Bali before it became widespread on the island. The numerous upscale establishments that first opened here gave this seaside resort its prestigious reputation but as the years have passed, Sanur has struggled to find a second lease of life. Today, it is even seen as becoming a little outdated. Nevertheless, this should not discourage those looking above all for some rest and relaxation. The hotel stands right next to the beach, with just a coastal path separating it from the sand. Numerous shops, restaurants and massage stands are located on either side of it, not to mention a pier that serves as the departure point for excursions to the neighbouring island of Nusa Penida. The Le Mayeur Museum is also just a stone's throw away. It takes approximately 25 minutes to reach the hotel from Denpasar International Airport when the traffic is good; when it's bad, the journey takes double that time. It takes an hour to reach the resort of Kuta and an hour and thirty minutes to reach Ubud.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel has a total of 38 guest rooms, including 3 villas. The latter were our favourites, as these are the only ones to have their own private terrace and swimming pool. However, it's a shame these swimming pools aren't heated or cleaned more regularly. Nevertheless, the decor in all of the guest rooms, which are furnished with a four-poster bed, is quite stylish and features many different natural materials. The bathrooms are all equipped with a bathtub and the villas also have a separate shower. All of the amenities you will need are provided, including tea and coffee-making facilities, a Wi-Fi Internet connection and a (CRT) television. The rooms do not come equipped with a hair-dryer but guests can request one from reception. Most of the views are either of the garden or of the surrounding areas. Those with their own terrace (equipped with two chairs and a table) have a partial view of the sea.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    This is a small family hotel full of flower-lined pathways and dense vegetation. The spacious and pleasant lobby features the typical Balinese decor seen throughout the rest of the establishment. Clean and well-ventilated, this room even has a giant chess set at your disposal if you're looking for some entertainment. The pathway leading to the beach runs alongside the hotel's three independent villas. The garden is rather unkempt and could do with some attention (the leaves could be swept, for example). The communal areas are very basic. In fact, apart from the rather cramped swimming pool area, where there are a few deckchairs arranged for guests to sit on, there are none. Access to the beach is direct once you've crossed the promenade lined with shops running along it. Guests can use the deckchairs here for free. Note that the hotel also has a tiny little gym, though the equipment isn't exactly brand new - use it at your own risk! The spa is simply a massage room where guests can also get a pedicure or a manicure. There are no noticeable decorative features and nothing to create a relaxing atmosphere, but the staff are competent.

    Food and drink 5.70 /10

    The hotel's halal restaurant, the Lagenda, is open for all three meals of the day. The room itself is pleasant and thanks to its location at the far end of the ?garden', it looks directly over the coastal path and the sea in the background. Don't expect anything extraordinary when it comes to the food. Opt for the local specialities (nasi goreng, mie goreng, etc.), as you can't go wrong with these. Breakfast is unexciting, a big effort for an unfortunately rather average result.

    Beach

    This is one of the hotel's main attributes. In addition to providing direct access to the beach, it also provides a number of deckchairs and parasols for its guests to use on the beach itself. The setting is pleasant, but nothing extraordinary, and the water is crystal clear. There are a number of shops directly on the beach, as well as several eateries if you're feeling peckish. There are also numerous places you can go for a massage.

Homogenous; the large, private areas and the communalareas incite relaxation and intimacy. It is a shame that the nearby beach does notincite the same thing.

      A group of private villas in Sanur in a peaceful residential area. On a pretty little site with beautifully manicured vegetation, The Gangsa is for those who like their privacy and their luxury. Spacious villas, a complete list of services, welcoming to families... it's just unfortunate that the establishment is a bit far from the beach.
