We stayed in Bali over the Easter weekend and really enjoyed the Sanur Paradise Plaza Hotel. It feels like a resort when you're on the hotel property but when you step outside, you have access to local restaurants and convenience stores, not to mention the beach nearby. We had read in other reviews that the shuttle was a good way to get to the beach but we set out for a walk and ended up there in no time. There are a number of cute beach bars and restaurants along the water front but they are made a little less charming by the litter that is lying around. The shopping stalls on the little roads off the beach have a great selection but bargain hard because their prices are a little high.
The pool at the hotel is very long, divided up into sections of different depths along the length of the hotel. We booked a club room which was at the very end and opened on to the round pool at the end of the hotel garden/courtyard. We liked the room and the outdoor bathroom but didn't like the fact that the voices of the children (and some parents) playing in the pool echoed back down to our end and through the not-very-well-insulated walls. I appreciate the fact that kids wake up early and the pool is a perfect place for them but I appreciate even more being able to sleep past 8:00 a.m. on a long weekend. Not the hotel's fault but we would probably take a garden-view room next time.
Some other reviewers have said that this is more of a business travel hotel but I travel a lot for business and think that it would be wasted on that. Granted, it is fairly convenient but it is also a great place to go for a vacation in Sanur.
