Behind the main street of Sanur lies a peaceful retreat offering a warm welcome and showcasing local art.

Just moments from the busy centre of Sanur you’ll find the tranquil hideaway of Sudamala. Low-rise and laid back, the hotel’s design is inspired by its local culture and is in keeping with its Balinese surroundings. Owned by an art collector, there are hand-crafted pieces and artworks throughout as well as the Sudakara ArtSpace featuring contemporary works by local artists and international artists in residence in Bali.

The relaxed ARES Steak & Pasta serves up Indonesian and western favourites with a Sudamala twist, and there’s a lounge area for cocktails. The pool area is particularly tranquil – it's the perfect spot for relaxing in peace on one of the comfy loungers. You’ll need to take a five-minute stroll – or a short cycle – past local cafés and boutiques to reach the hotel’s private area of beach, complete with sun loungers and canopies. Before you go, be sure to pick up your beach essentials – including sun cream, cold drinks and reading material – from the hotel’s beach station at the front desk.

Elegant suites are traditional with contemporary touches, in colours of earthy browns, reds and creams and featuring pieces of hand-crafted furniture. The suites are on the ground or first floor, set around two spacious inner courtyards – one with a lush lawn and a performance area, the other housing a large swimming pool.
