Tandjung Sari Hotel gets top of 4 Stars rating from me. Having said that and given the choice of staying in any 5 Stars modern hotel in Bali, my undisputed choice would still be Tandjung Sari.
It is only here, in Asia's original boutique hotel (built in the early 60ties) where one can experience authentic Balinese lifestyle and charm. It's rustic local architecture with it's blend of simplicity and sophistication, it's gardens with it's lush varieties of plants and flowers, balinese sculptures and carvings and beachside front are all beautifully integrated within the grounds. Evenings sitting at the Bar or on the terrace looking out to sea is quite magical.
We stayed in a delightful Deluxe chalet with our own porch and little garden. Food, both western and asian cuisine is excellent . Special mention must be given to the warm service from staff...One feels it is given " from the heart "
It is here, only in Bali that the words of William Henry Davies come to my mind.
" What is this world if full of care there is no time to stand and stare"
Leisure is simple and yet so beautiful .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tandjung Sari was opened in 1962 and began as an extension of the family home of Indonesian proprietor Wija Wawo-Runtu. The hotel was named Tandjung Sari (cape of flowers) and initially developed as Bali's very first boutique property to be managed as a small family business catering to the needs of a privileged clientele. The scale of the entire complex was purposely kept low rise and the articulation of space together with the rambling indirectness of the path ways has generated a relaxed, leisurely pace. Operational for nearly half of a century, Tandjung Sari showcases an eclectic collection of rare Balinese and Dutch colonial artifacts as a tribute to the glorious past. ... more less
