“Good Beach Location”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We recently stayed at the Inna Sindhu Beach Resort. As the name indicates the hotel is situated on the beach in Sanur with lovely grounds and pool area. The staff were all extremely helpful, check in quick and we were told that we had been upgraded at no extra charge (although we were not upgraded to one of the newly renovated rooms, so not quite sure what our original room would have been like!). We did have problems with our air conditioning which was addressed immediately, however despite attempts to remedy the issue the AC did not work consistently and we were eventually moved to another room. The room(s) we had were clean, had hot water and pretty good water pressure in the shower, but definitely could use some updating. Floor tiles were cracked/chipped, the room was musty smelling (which could be due to the high humidity) and we were given 2 twin beds and not a double/queen). If we were to go back we would request one of the updated rooms and pay the extra. There were also small cabin-type dwellings near the pool which looked very nice. Safes are in each room also or you can also leave valuables at the front desk safe.
Buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room and was excellent with a wide variety of choices. There is a bar situated beachside which was great to sit back, relax and watch the activities going on. The food ordered from the bar menu was also very tasty.
Massages are available on-site, which I took advantage of and was very pleased with the service. My tired feet and legs certainly appreciated it!
The beach area was clean and they had many beach loungers that were very comfortable. The water was good for swimming, however the constant noise from the jet skis just off shore was not great for relaxing. However that is just part of the noise at a beach-side resort and the jet-skiers seemed to be having a very good time!
There are a variety of restaurants near the resort. The beachside boardwalk was great for strolling along, or, as we did, riding bikes. They do rent bikes at the hotel, but they always seemed to be gone so we were able to rent from one of the vendors just down the road. There are shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and bars set up all along the boardwalk which make it very interesting. The Night Market is within walking distance and is well worth the walk (go around 6pm as most vendors are there by then). Look for the most popular vendor and chances are you will not be disappointed. We highly recommend that if you decide not to have dinner at least try the donuts - they melt in your mouth. Everything is very cheaply priced. We each had dinner (noodles and soup) and shared a large Bintang beer for a total price of 50,000 Rp (around $5.00!). Walking around the area at night was not a problem and we felt very safe at all times.
The sidewalk in the area are a bit dangerous as they are uneven, missing grates on open storm drains, etc. so pack a small flashlight with you for better vision when out at night. (This is actually the way it was all over Indonesia, not just in Sanur).
The hotel appears to be popular with "regulars", as many people I spoke with had been coming back for years and stayed for long durations, which I guess speaks for the hotel and service. Be warned though that the regulars do not have much imagination and like to always sit at the same table for breakfast, have the same loungers at the pool/beach each day and dare you inadvertently sit where they normally sit, you will get looks! Quite funny actually to watch their reaction! People need to learn to mix it up a bit in life!
The vendors can be annoying as they troll the beach and boardwalk all day trying to lure you into their shops, but they were never rude. A simple "no thanks" or "maybe later" seemed to be enough for them to back off and leave you alone. Taxi drivers and massage girls, outside the resort, always asking for service as you walk past them gets to be bothersome, but again "no thanks" or a head shake seemed to be enough for them to get the message. Obviously when we were there business was slow and they were persistent!
Given the room that we had and from looking around at some of the other hotels/resorts in the area (and there are many) this hotel is definitely one of the budget hotels. For the price it was great for a beachside hotel, but if you are looking for fancy or five star accommodation this is not your hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated newly renovated room.

INNA SINDHU BEACH Hotel is absolutely beautiful. The photos on the website do not do the property justice. All the furnishings and fixtures are stunning and well placed throughout the hotel and grounds. It is immaculate in cleanliness and the attention to detail is impeccable. The staff of the hotel were always polite and friendly and went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met. I loved the hotel and will remember it fondly and will talk about it to all my friends and will recommend it to everyone I know travelling to Bali

Stayed for six days and enjoyed every minute. Hotel is very well situated for beach, restaurants, Hardy's etc.
Our Junior Exec room was actually a bungalow with a door opened to include a living area with a second TV, and a lounge/sitting area. As there were only two of us we really didn't use the space. However if you had a family group it could be very useful as our room was not huge.
I had read reviews stating that some rooms had areas of mould. However our room appeared to have been renovated recently and was fresh and clean looking.
Staff informed me that their standard rooms are not renovated and are not going to be in the near future so it's probably best to go for the next grade of room. Tried to have a look at the standard room but they were all booked out which I guess is a good sign!
Most guests when we were there were Dutch retirees escaping the European winter so the hotel was very quiet which really suited us. Breakfast buffet was adequate and all staff were lovely.
I'm sure I'll return in the future.

This time the price had increased, maybe because it was Christmas. The hotel is old and could do with some re-freshening. It is no longer safe to swim in the sea because one is likely to be run over by a jet ski or motor craft. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The breakfast could be improved. The best thing about this place is the location, with the beach, restaurants and markets very close by. After coming here for years, we may NOT return to this hotel. Other places in the same area are better value.

Perfect location right on the beach. The restaurant food is amongst the best in Sanur also the drinks. The prices are excellent. staff are extremely well trained polite and friendly, We visit Bali every 3 months and this by far our favourite spot to have a drink or a meal. It is so peaceful and its so entertaining to watch the people go by. we are surprised every time we get our bill it is so well priced.

Room Tip: All the ocean facing rooms would be excellent

We originally booked a very cheap deal via agoda and when we arrived were shown to the room which matched the price, it was very average but hey, it was cheap. I went and asked at reception if they had any nicer rooms and was shown the Junior suite and it was amazing and for an extra $50 a night I highly reccomend it. It made are stay so much more comfortable, the room looked like it was brand new, new bed, new duvet, new bathroom, new everything.

The hotel itself is right on the beach, you can even eat breakfast on the beach. The pool area is very nice and they give you fresh beach towells every day.

Breakfast was included but was pretty average after having some really good ones elsewhere.

Overall we loved this place and would defiatley reccomend it. You can stay in an awesome postion for cheap in an average room or you can pay a litlle extra and have the a great room along with a good hotel.

Staff were very helpful and friendly.

The hotel under a good manager and the older rooms with a refurb would be very, very good!

Room Tip: Upgrade to Junior suite, it worth it!
