Besakih Beach Hotel
Ranked #44 of 79 Hotels in Sanur
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The besakih is is a wonderful loaction and this combined with the staff is its saving grace - these two things are the only reason you stay here. The owners of the hotel spend NOTHING on maintenance or improvements and we know this as we have been staying here for 10 years - the same toilets still have the same leaks!!
The tariff's are really overpriced for what you get, but having said that the location and the staff are its saving grace.

Room Tip: If you can afford it the bungalows are the way to go here

Nice staff,nice location that's about it. Disappointed this time as it's really rundown and needs a good clean. Nice and quiet and that's probably because less and less people like it. Getting a seat around the pool is a big problem too, even though it says the towels put on the chairs from early morning will be removed if left on for more than an hour,I don't think that ever happened. Lots of other places to try I suppose.

We have stayed here three times now and no more. While the location is great I found most of the breakfast staff rude and totally uninterested in tourists. Our bungalow was clean but basic. Unfortunately the curtains were very light and even after we hung towels over the rails for extra darkness it didn't really help. The gardens are nice but the legendary friendliness of the Balinese was missing from most of the breakfast staff. Breakfast was simple but adequate. The pools were both cold and people like to hang their towels on the few beds available and then disappear for hours. The lovely boardwalk stroll we used to love is now an obstacle course of manic cycle riders barreling along with scant regard for pedestrians. No I wouldn't stay there again.

From the moment you arrive to check-in, you are treated like royalty! The rooms are clean, comfortable & have tv, wifi, hot water & airconditioning. All of the staff are more than willing to help, in fact, they embrace you as "family". I spent 5 days here & didn't want to leave. It is situated right on beautiful Sanur Beach. The gardens & pool are beautiful & lead down to the hotel restaurant (right on the beach). It became my home away from home!

I really enjoy staying here. It is not by any means 5 star - even though my review is excellent - it is definitely 3 star and the hotel is rough around the edges in places.
However I love it here, we have stayed twice and will come back.
It is in the best spot for me in Sanur, close to shops, markets, the best places to eat and on the beach.
It is QUIET and peaceful.
The staff are lovely.
The rooms are just fine, clean and comfortable.
I love the non bogan parts of Bali and Sanur is just that. You will find Aussies here but they are generally older and there for a nice relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Closer to the beach is quiter but the Bungalows closer to the street are nicer :)

For a thirty something couple I can say we really liked it here. Hotel itself could do with updating but seriously doesnt matter if it does right now as its certainly fine as it is for a 3 star. Hotel is full of greenery and serenity. Other patrons were all older "regulars that come every year" but Sanur is like that predominantly. If youre after something quiet and relaxing this is your place. Head literally straight out onto the beach from hotel. Beach has minimal waves and beautiful for swimming. Basically no hawkers at all until you hit the shops on your walk along the beach front. Besakih overpriced considering but the hotel surroundings and location are pretty awesome. If youre after something lively you must head to Casablanca bar (turn left about 500 mtrs down main road) which has nightly live music. Certainly made our stay more entertaining. Easy to travel All in all we really enjoyed our stay but likely wont stay in Sanur again soon.
