The Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali sits in the quiet and tranquil vicinity of Sanur, where village life precedes tourist-heavy resorts.
Once a fishing village, Sanur is full of historical charm and tradition, and is a hub for Balinese art and culture. Taking inspiration from its surroundings, Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali features traditional Balinese style mixed with contemporary Asian living. Guests can choose from 120 individual villas and suites, and the décor is neutral beiges mixed with rich terracottas and deep reds. Spacious and airy living areas give way to private pools and sundecks, some with beach views.
A huge emphasis is placed on spending time alfresco, so guests can rise early to catch the sunrise on picturesque Sanur beach, relax by the 50m infinity-edge lap pool, or take a stroll along the five km-long footpath that hugs the coastline. The Kid’s Club has a mini cinema and a PlayStation, and the resort also has a number of pushbikes to lend out to guests. A map and route to the nearby villages is also available.
Other activities include lazy days on the beach, and exploring the underwater world on a dive or snorkelling trip. Alternatively, head to The Spa for a traditional Balinese massage performed by an experienced local therapist.
The complex’s two restaurants prepare mouth-watering menus with locally-sourced ingredients. Layang Layang, which serves local dishes like Sop Buntut (Indonesian Oxtail Soup) and Iga Bapi Panggang (Balinese spiced pork ribs), and Nyala Beach Club & Grill which has views of the pool and serves food with an international edge.
