Ubud and Sanur may both be Balinese towns, but their vibes couldn’t be more unique. A beachfront destination at heart, Sanur provides visitors with the chance to revel in crashing waves and fresh-cracked coconuts. On the contrary, Ubud boasts a village appeal, giving guests the opportunity to witness Balinese culture at its core. But one thing these places have in common? Their capacity to serve as a tranquil respite on your Bali getaway. Whether you stay in a multi-bedroom home away from home or a quaint couple’s paradise, our luxury villas in Sanur and Ketewel, just a short drive away from Bali’s cultural heart, are the perfect resolution to your quest for restoration.

Experience Sanur

Destination Guide

Sanur is a beachy locale that really resonates with the Bali aesthetic. However much of a go-getter you may be, you and your crew will have every reason to take a load off around your Sanur villa. If you’re heading island-side with the family, we couldn’t think of a better home base.

Just half an hour from Kuta, Legian and Seminyak, Sanur is removed enough from clubs and downtown life to give off a sense of serenity while still being accessible to Bali’s hottest spots. At this east coast gem, you’ll encounter ocean swimmers, paddleboarders, surfers and even scuba divers starting or ending their trip into the sea. A water sport haven, Sanur has mastered the balancing act of sportiness and stillness.

Rent a bicycle and explore the depths of Sanur with the kids. If you’re lucky enough to wind up at Padanggalak Beach in July, you’ll even catch the yearly Bali Kite Festival, which is quite a sight to see. Finish the days at your villa pool, where you and your beloved travel buddies can splash to your heart’s content. Whatever you do, do your best to hit the shore at dawn at least once for a seriously memorable sunrise.
