I live in Timor leste and due to visa regulations i need to leave the country every 3 months. So as a diver on a budget this is where i always stay. The rooms are nice and include tv and dvd player along with fan or aircon, comfortable bed and en suite. They are around a pool which is used for diver training for much of the day but it also means that it is allways clean and designed to be deep and spacious. The brekfasts are pretty good with the menu changing daily. Due to the dive center and bar/resturant the atmosphere here is very welcoming and everyone will make you feel at home. If you are a diver Crystal divers is one of the longest running and highly regarded dive centers in bali so you couldnt really get a better place to stay for a short trip or a diving holiday.

I have stayed several times at the Hotel Santai in the heart of Sanur. For USD 35.00 a night you will get a clean room, air-condition, a TV with DVD player and large bed. They have started to renovate the hotel so you might even end up with a brand-new room. This is not a 5000 bed hotel, here you can experience personal interaction with the owner and if there is a problem it will be fixed. The hotel is mainly frequented by divers as Bali Crystal Divers is located inside the hotel. If you want a very quiet day, laying on your sunlounge and not interact with any other human being than you may not choose Hotel Santai. But no worries there are sun lounges, a relatively big pool and yes, quite a few interesting people to have a chat with. Ask the owner about the local sights, she has been living here for ages and has an answer to any question you might come across on your travels.

This hotel is the best. The rooms are great and are kept very clean. The whole place is kept very clean. The staff are the most friendly persons i've ever met and made my stay even better, they'll help you with anything you need. The atmosphere at Santai is lovely and fun. There are always someone hanging out in the bar or at the poolfront that you can join, so its a good place wether you're travelling alone or with friends or family. Price is VERY resonable!
Santai Hotel is no less than perfect if you want to go diving or take a course. They have highly educated instructors and all dives centers around safety and getting good experiences.

It's difficult to give this hotel a rating - if you are a diver and staying here to dive with Crystal Divers it is excellent but if you are not a diver and here for a peaceful holiday it's probably not the best choice. The roooms are very clean and spacious with lovely bathrooms but they are around the pool where the dive training is conducted and there is not much peace and quiet through the day. The location is great - right in the middle of Jalan Tamblingan, so there are lots of restaurants and shops close at hand. I had a nice stay but it's difficult to get away from things unless you stay inside your room. The rooms have fridges and mine also had aTV and DVD player. Definately recommended for divers but not for non-divers. The service comes from the dive center so there was little help on the room side of things but for diving issues it was very good.

This small hotel is quite nice: some rooms have been recently refurbished, practical location, good price. But if you're not a diver you'll definitely find something more suitable in Sanur. It's a diving school, pretty successful judging by the crowds in this late August, so that means that the pool is used almost all the time by group of divers who are learning the art. Not really fit for relaxing around!
This said, the diving school looked pretty serious, the equipment brand new, and this adding to the good price could make it a good choice for divers. Although in my experience, if you're a beginner you'd better take your course in Amed, which has awesome and easy dive spots nearby. Nearby Nusa Lembongan has fantastic dive sites but the conditions are tricky and can be downright dangerous if you're not experienced.

Room Tip: Do NOT take the room Idols, in the corner. It is next door from a big water pomp that is VERY noisy.

Hotel Santai is the accommodation for Crystal Divers, and so I would expect a fair proportion of the guests are either diving with them or on a course. It's also worth noting that they occasionally use their pool for diving courses during the day.

This aside, or perhaps because of this, the hotel has a very social atmosphere with people gathering in the bar area out front each evening for a well deserved drink.

The food is also excellent, the breakfasts are massive with plenty of choice. Each evening they serve only one choice (different each night), but they were consistently of a very high standard.

The rooms themselves were simple but comfortable and we found it reasonably priced for the area ($30 / night for the fan room inc breakfast).

Overall we enjoyed our stay, with the staff and the food making it pleasantly memorable.
