Hi there, I know I'll get quite a few votes for Sanur, but just wondering what our best option would be.
We are going to Bali in the July school holidays. I have booked the 1st night at the Safari park, then the next 4 nights at Kuta Townhouses. We will then do 4 nights at Novotel Benoa.
My plan was to do the surfing lessons (for the kids, they've never surfed before), shopping, Waterbom Park etc from Kuta. Then do the relaxing and water activities from Benoa.
I'm a bit worried reading posts lately about how full on Kuta is. We've been before (1997) and stayed in Patong in Phuket and don't really mind the hustle and bustle, but not sure about the aggressiveness of the sellers etc.
Would we be better off in a villa in Sanur, or would we miss out on that 'Bali' full on feel. Is there still market shopping etc in Sanur? Is it close enough to do Waterbom, shopping, Surfing etc if we decide to go into Kuta?
Would love any info anyone could provide. Thanks
