“On the beach”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We liked this hotel beacause of the excellent location, clean rooms and nice staff. The garden is pretty and the room was nice with a terrace.
A bit expensive though, I think it is because of the good location.

The location is good right on the beach and on a quite part of it. However the hotel is very old with poor maintenance. Shampoo is not given in the rooms and breakfast is average. Staff is nice. Ok hotel if less expansive. Paid 120usd the room! Far overpriced.

We spent 6 nights here in a superior room on the 1st floor. The superior rooms are closer to the beach than the standard. There is a pathway and garden running down to the beach with rooms located either side. The 1st night we stayed in a upstairs room on the left hand side of the pathway which was smaller and darker compared to the same class of room on the right hand side. We moved to the other side the following day and was more than happy with the room. Spacious, clean with a roomy balcony to sit out on and good natural lightening during the day. If you prefer a ground floor room there is no difference in size. Some of the rooms have a shower over the bath and others a shower recess. Jug, tea and coffee were provided. Breakfast was buffet, fruit, pastries, Indonesian and an egg station. We did eat at the restaurant 1 night and was not overly impressed with the food, there are plenty of cafes on the street to choose from. This hotel is of a more traditional Balinese style with lovely wooden carved doors and windows situated in a great location for Sanur being on the beach and close to many eateries. The hotel is making improvements to the place, they changed the canvas on the beach umbrellas while we were there and noticed other minor things being done. For the price we paid we considered it to be very good value and will be returning.

We moved from the Bumas to this hotel to try and enjoy the rest of our honeymoon, what an amazing hotel it was. They were so friendly on arrival and offered to show us the rooms before we made our decision to stay. The grounds are pretty and very well kept, the rooms are standard and well kept, water bottles provided each day. Breakfast was brilliant,right next to the beach over looking the sea, good choice to choose from which varied each day. The staff in the restaurant are amazing and the food at lunch and dinner was very nice (good price). I can't say a bad word about this place, we loved our stay here and would definitely look to go back.

We moved to Vila Shanti after first staying at Peneeda View Hotel, about 1 km south, which was charming, with big bright rooms, but it was too isolated for our liking. Vila Shanti lacked that charm, possibly being quiet fancy in the 70's with it's maroon marble and dark brown furniture. The room we stayed in was freshly painted, but dark and dingy. The bathroom is was a big let-down: small, dirty and worn out. I read that they have started renovating bathrooms on the property and I hope this will somehow make the rooms more appealing. On the plus side the room was big enough for our small family (2 adults & a 4 year-old), with enough space for a single bed and ample storage. The outside veranda area was ideal for us, with two seats and space to leave wet bathers and toys. Having a room on the ground floor gave our son plenty of opportunity to explore the lovely garden, while being able to keep an eye on him. The service at Vila Shanti was good, when we asked for a kettle first and later some matches, they were delivered immediately. The cleaning staff was friendly, hand working and left little touches like fresh flowers on our beds (and on either side of our sons Teddy) which made us feel welcome and special. They were particularly nice to our son, who enjoyed interacting with the gardeners as well. The swimming pool was good, with a shallow play area for kids. The pool area is well appointed, with ocean glimpses, restaurant service and life gamelan music every other afternoon, which was lovely. It could do with more sunbeds and some shade. The restaurant was ok, but not great. The breakfast buffet was good, with plenty of choice. The menu card was a bit lack lustre and the Indonesian dishes not authentic enough for our liking. On the last day we had a Nasi Goreng that actually had some oomph to it. They had a different chef on that day, hoorah! Unfortunately it turned out the chicken sate was raw, yuk! Luckily there are plenty of other restaurant options around in Sanur. Lastly: We were relieved the staff at reception didn't do the double converting trick they have pulled on us in other Bali hotels, when paying the bill in Rupiahs. It's a shame you have to worry about such things, when holidaying in Bali. All in all we had a lovely stay in Vila Shanti and would consider returning in the future. I would like to make a special mention here to the newly opened little café in front of the Laghawa Beach Hotel (few 100 meters south along the beach path), nice affordable coffee (Rp28) and ice cream (try the espresso flavour!) on a nice quiet corner of the beach. Also, for a great Balinese massage go to Teratai, just outside the hotel on the main road, to the left. They are slightly more pricey, but it is well worth paying $2 extra for. Well trained staff, nicely presented, clean premises, plus you can take a shower after your massage to wash of the oil, which I thought was fabulous! The spa at the hotel is average and too pricey, but is nice for a foot massage with a beautiful view.

Room Tip: Have a look at several rooms, because some are in a better state then others. Particularly the bathr...

Just back from a 10 night stay at Vila Shanti in Sanur. Although this is an older style hotel, it is clean and had everything that we needed in a room (hot water, excellent airconditioner, kettle, tea/coffee). The room also has a tv but most of the channels were Balinese (they did have one movie channel and CNN. This didn't worry us as we don't watch tv in Bali - too much other stuff to do). It is located right on the beach and is close to everything we go to in Sanur (markets for dinner and Hardys for water and supplies). Every morning we would get up and go for a walk on the path along the beach. Sanur had experienced some nasty tides before we arrived so some of the pathway had been destroyed or was covered in sand which made it a little difficult with a pram. The locals were however removing the sand from the path in most areas. Breakfast was included in our package and was just great. It kept us going until dinner time.

The only bad points I would mention about this hotel is
(a) a lot of Europeans frequent the hotel and hog the sunbeds. We were up at 6am in the morning yet all the sunbeds around the pool and on the beach already had belongings on them. It wasn't until later in the holiday that we realised that they were putting their things on the sunbeds the night before! Thankfully they left a few days into our holiday so we were able to get sunbeds either on the beach or around the pool.
(b) the cot provided by the hotel was not very safe. It was an old wooden cot and was definitely not up to Australian standards. I asked if they had a portacot, but they didn't. I therefore ended up hiring a portacot from Baby Bali Hire for 500,000rp (7 days & included delivery & pick-up). The hotel really needs to invest in a couple of portacots.

My 18mth old loved the toddler pool and being able to wonder down to the beach. She also became very good friends with the Balinese twins who walk past Vila Shanti every day selling fruit - they just love children. They gave my little girl a small banana each day which she just thought was great!

We usually travel to Bali twice a year and no doubt will check-in to Vila Shanti next May/June as you can't beat the Location and value for money.

Room Tip: Bring your own portacot if you have a baby/toddler or hire one from Baby Bali Hire as the hotel cots...

I've just had the worst meal ever. I will never go back and strongly recommend that no one else does. We had seafood that was looking great on the menu. When it finally arrived it was cold and so over cooked it was not eatable. Don't eat there!!!
