Sanur with kids
Sanur is 30 minutes drive from Denpasar airport. Therefore many travellers choose to begin their trip to Bali in Sanur, so did we. If you travel to Sanur with kids, the distance to the hotel from the airport means a lot, when you are finally out of the airplane you don’t want to drive for hours to get to your hotel.
Sanur is a coastel stretch of beach with hotels and restaurants and the perfect starting point for a Bali holiday. There are quite a lot of hotel options; budget homestays as well as more expensive 5 star hotels. We chose a small 3 star bungalow style hotel with a tiny pool: Sri Phala Resort and Villa.
The hotel is 200 m from the beach. The room was perfectly clean and really cozy – just what we needed after the long flight. After a few hours’ sleep we were all enjoying the pool area and the beautiful weather. The pool area at the hotel was small but very welcoming with small statues and lots of green plants sorrounding it.
The beach of Sanur is not the most beautiful beach in Bali but it is authentic and full of locals. There are hundreds of traditional fishing boats as well as local small shops along the beach. In weekends the locals gather their families for picnics and a day in the sun.
From Sanur we catched the fast boat to Lembongan. In one of my earlier travels to Bali, we took the slow boat to Lembongan. It is not worth the few saved dollars. It took forever to get there and the safety was not existing. So pay a little extra – and go for the fast boat.Share on Facebook
