“ Respati vs Besakih ”

Hi All,

Myself and Mrs ChewyOz are off to Sanur in February and are trying to make up our minds where to stay. We are looking at the Respati or the Besakih because of the great location. We are willing to spend asround the $110 pn mark, but what we don't want is to be stuffed into a small room with no facilities in a back corner of the hotel.

Has anyone stayed at both and if so what are the pros and cons? Is there a particular room to ask for? Is it best to book through the hotel or an agent?

All advice will be gratefully accepted.

Thanks

ChewyOz

Can't help you with the Besakih (staying there in Feb)but did stay at the Respati about 5yrs ago yrs .It was fine,very centrally located .The restaurant is very close to the boardwalk with the pool behind.

I stayed in one of the cheaper garden rooms and liked it alot.Very private,good air con,reasonable mini bar

The more expensive rooms are closer to the back of the property and kinda have a view.However everyone walking down the path towards the restaurant/beach/pool area can look right into the rooms.For that reason I would choose the garden rooms

When I was booking for my trip I did consider them but decided on the Besakih because it was something different

We are booked in to Besakih in March for 5 nights and have booked thru Qantas Holidays - price for 3 people in the room incl. breakfast was $460 for the 5 nights. Qantas has pay/stay deals so worth a look - hotel direct is dearer. Cheers, Karen

Have only stayed at the Besakih. Really enjoyed our 10 nights. Great location and close to restaurants etc. Had a 1 bedroom bungalow. Very nice.

We stayed at Respati in May & just got back from staying at the Besakih last week. We have also stayed at each of these previously. Respati has nicer, larger rooms & bungalow's. Both Resorts are brilliantly located. Besakih has a nicer, larger, shadier beach front. Respati's pool is smaller than the Besakih but very quiet compared to the Besakih. Most guest's at Respati tend to lie on the beach. Both have similar & sufficient brekky's however Respati usually has a small buffet style that we prefer. We have also stayed at Griya & Puri Santrian but prefer Respati & Besakih as they are nearly 50% cheaper (if booking at qantas.com.au). Respati is also a smaller resort compared to the Besakih and has no "chair hogs" (we found many guests at Besakih place their towels on the seats around the pool very early in the morning to reserve the seat so noone else can use ... very frustrating) Neither has a pool bar but the restaurant for each is beside the pool on the beach front so very east to order drinks while having a swim. Both Resorts are great & I am sure you will really enjoy staying at the Respati. We enjoy staying at both and will stay at both again.

Thanks for the great info WLS :)

Have you any suggestions on places to eat, shop, get massages etc that are within easy walking distance of the Respati ? We've only had day visits to Sanur in the past and love to eat at Bonsai but don't know much beyond that. Have seen mention of markets, Tootsies fixed price shop and Hardy's - are these close by?

We are definitely now on countdown and can't wait for Feb to come around.

Cheers

There are many restaurants/markets within a 10 min. walk from the Respati. Hardys is 10/15 min walk away. The position of the hotel is for me the best.
