“Just okay”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

First impression was that we were given one of the oldest rooms that was in need of a make over sooner rather than later.Bathroom was very small,had to be careful opening door,could hit your leg on the toilet.Grouting on the tiles was very dirty in places,chipped soap dish and I don't think behind the door ever had a good clean.Daily cleaning wasn't that great either,I could see where they had given the sink top a quick wipe but had left water marks and dust.Hotel is in a good spot,handy to everything.Breakfast was very good,with great variety.I would go and stay here again but I would want a better room.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a recently renovated room.

The Balinese architecture and the staff og Griya Santrian are without a shadow of a doubt the stars of this Hotel. Many cute restaurants right outside, shopping galore and good drivers with clean air conditioned cars ready to whisk you away for the day for an agreed fee.
If I were to suggest changes it would be to the breakfast room - which need to be more open and lighter. The coffee is of the highest quality - just need to be served out of a coffee pot and not cup by cup.

My husband and I spent time every year at the Griya.. We are always remembered and welcomed by the staff who are friendly and helpful. We can't fault anything. We just relax and bask in it. Cant wait until next year!

Room Tip: Rooms at back are quieter.

Staying at the Griya now. Great location to everything, staff fantastic and accommodation in deluxe rooms superb. Only complaint is the wankers who think they own the pool lounges. I just looked out my window (6am) and the lounges all have towels on them, supposedly claiming them for the day. The lounges still have their protective covers on them! These lounges for some parts of the day are vacant as the people wander off to do other things. Needs to be a bit more control on this.
Otherwise a great place nod we will very back.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are very good

This was our forth visit to Griya Santrian. We last visited five years ago and have really been longing to return. The reception has been completely modernized and the hotel now has a safe in each room and access to free internet in the gallery area. I could write about this wonderful hotel for hours because there is so much about it that is wonderful! The hotel consists of a number of buildings situated in a beautiful setting of tropical gardens that are meticulously maintained. There are three swimming pools, one with a sea view close to the restaurant and bar and two others designed around a Hindu temple theme in the garden wings.
The rooms are large and range from simple clean, air conditioned accommodation with cable TV to spacious superior rooms with massive walk-in shower areas. The hotel is situated on the beach front all rooms you are only a few minutes from the sea. On the beach you will find good hard wood beach lounges most with umbrellas, but not so concentrated that it spoils the vista. On the beach you can be left alone or enjoy various activities but bartering is essential.
In addition to all these lovely features I must mention the staff. Every member of staff is eager to help. They are delightful people who want nothing from you but to satisfy your needs. You will find there Wayan Tamiarta, one of the managers. He has taken it upon himself to make your stay perfect. There are always art displays and lively cultural evenings, festivals and sports kit. Do borrow a snorkel. The calm waters of the barrier lagoon house some beautiful and interesting fish. Compared to the other hotels along the sea front Griya Santrian stands out like a jewel with its white coral statues, orchids and clear blue swimming pools. As soon as you arrive
There is a selection of good food at breakfast consisting of a self service buffet and an omelette chef. The restaurant staff are attentive to you needs and know you by name from your first visit.
A truly great holiday and I will be going back!

My husband and I recently spent the last 4 days of our Bali holiday at Griya Santrian, our favourite hotel in Sanur. Griya never disappoints, the location is fantastic, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Great place to relax around one of the three pools, walk along the beach and generally relax in a superb environment. We will definately make Griya our Sanur place to stay.

The Griya did not fail to impress, especially since we stayed in the new wing. We have a young baby and the cook was more than willing to boil up vegetables for her. The staff are very professional, hard-working and friendly. The whole place is spotless!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Griya Santrian welcomes you to experience an enduring tale of warm traditional Balinese hospitality on the laid back sunrise coast of Sanur Beach. This beautiful beachfront resort, the sister property of Puri Santrian, is unmistakably among the most renowned landmarks in Sanur, gracing a perfectly central location on the quiet shore and with an unending classical design that continues to charm visitors, be it new and repeat visitors alike. Sanur is well known as a spot for luxurious seaside accommodation with its white sand beach bordering a reef-sheltered lagoon, making it one of the safest on the island, and thus perfect for families. As a luxuriant oasis in Sanur, Griya Santrian's enduring warm Balinese touches are imbued throughout its range of impeccable services and facilities. Leafy tropical Balinese gardens comprising flowering undergrowth and large shady trees (some older than the resort itself) dominate its manicured landscaping. And guests enjoy ease of access to the local shopping and dining hubs of Sanur, all within walking distance from the resort. At the heart of the Balinese owned and operated resort are its wonderful accommodation features - well designed and appointed guestrooms are spread throughout its two main wings. The two story Garden Wing comprises a total of 37 rooms with private balconies or terraces overlooking the resort's aforementioned lush gardens. Meanwhile, the ever popular Beach Wing features a total of 20 spacious rooms that let guests wake up to the wonderful garden view and the dramatic Sanur sunrises. Balconies or terraces also overlook the resort's main pool. Cable TV, mini-bar, hot and cold water, IDD telephone, tea and coffee making facilities, in-room safe and air conditioning all come as standard in-room amenities, to name a few. Alternatively, a choice of 59 Deluxe Rooms welcome guests to garden and pool views with some closer to the beach and feature en suite marble bathrooms and separate showers. For those who prefer a more lavish accommodation will find the Santrian Suite, a capacious suite with a 68 sqm bedroom with an elegantly draped four-poster bed as its center piece, together with a dressing room and private balcony. Designed with a refined modern Balinese approach, the suite serves as the ultimate romantic getaway for couples and honeymooners, while also great for families. For dining pleasures, Griya Santrian presents its main restaurants and outlets, which includes The Wantilan Restaurant, offering sumptuous breakfasts and all-day dining complemented by sweeping ocean views over the Sanur coastline. Meanwhile, Griya Beach Corner serves a wide choice of Italian, Japanese and Asian specialty dishes in a refreshing open-air setting. For a bit of romance, lovebirds can optionally spice things up with a bespoke candlelit dinner. The Spa at Griya Santrian is a thoughtfully designed and purpose built facility that offers a wide range of health and beauty treatments using natural fruit and flower extracts that will totally indulge you from top to toe. It's the go-to place within the resort grounds where guests can discover a great way to re-energize, refresh and rejuvenate during their stay. Griya Santrian opened in 1972 as a luxury boutique resort with a pride and commitment towards the preservation of Balinese arts and culture. While keeping to its roots and now in its fourth decade running, Griya Santrian continues to improve its facilities and services. The most recent addition includes a new wing room which was unveiled only last year, and repeat guests will also be surprised to see a new spa adjacent the resort's lobby, set to be completed this year. Several key facelifts are also well underway in 2016. ... more   less
