“Can't wait to go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2012

Comfortable accommodation, reception staff most helpful as were the wait staff. Breakfast high quality and restaurant served fabulous meals. Had a bit of mix up with date of leaving and felt that management should have approached us instead of leaving it to reception staff. Highly recommended and wouldn't hesitate to visit again

There's only so much raving about this hotel I can do without sounding ridiculous. We have recently been to Bali with friends for my birthday and after researching and reading online we decided this suited our needs best. Our room was perfect. We loved that the hotel didn't look run of the mill but looked Balinese. The bed was so comfortable, the room wonderfully decked out and we had a huge veranda to sit outside and relax in if we felt like it.

The staff were incredibly friendly, and as I was trying to book for multiple rooms, were helpful and attentive in the whole booking process. We loved the restaurant, breakfast was delicious and the view to the beach unparalleled. We often walked along the beach strip and I think La Taverna, with is shade trees and white fencing looked the freshest and most appealing. The swimming pool was just the right size and the beach was right there too!

Our room was always clean and tidy, with a turn down every night. We had absolutely no issues, except that service at the bar in the afternoon could have been quicker! When we come back to Sanur we will be staying here again as the locality, service and hotel itself was outstanding!

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe room Number 6. Great size terrace and good size room!

This is an older style hotel with beautiful grounds. They were out of standard rooms so got an upgraded one, with a separate sitting area. The room was nice, with lovely mosaic bath and shower. The sitting area came with an uncomfortable couch/bed with a musty fabric cover that I didn't want to really touch with bare skin. The air conditioner did nothing but make noise so it was extremely hot so it was hard to wear clothes so couldn't really sit on the couch. Had to relax in bed only. The layout was such that you could only watch TV from the couch so that was a problem. Fine, thought to read my book, but the nightstand light was a ridiculously dim energy efficient bulb, so that was impossible. Out of desperation, I removed the oversized lampshade and could then read a bit. There was a cool breeze at night, but no screens and my New England instincts wouldn't allow me to go screenless. But they had a substantial bug spraying event every evening so I suppose that may have been possible, except for when the spraying was going on. The restaurant was nice and the butter fish was good, though smallish. I did put in a request to fix the air conditioner and dead phone, but the ac was not fixed while I was staying there. The phone was, though.

Had to checkout early to catch a plane, but there was no desk staff on duty yet. The security guys and bellboys collaborated and talked to somebody on the phone and managed to check me out. Much appreciated.

Room Tip: Make sure ac works if that is important to you.

We are very statisfied with La-Taverna hotel. A very good hotel in term of location, friendly staff, food and facility. A very balinese style hotel. Beautiful pool. The breakfast is lovely. At night there are live band. Near by there are many choice of foods. There are many shops around. We will come back to sanur again..i love bali..

My partner and I booked through an online system to stay here and received an email confirming the booking. When we arrived at La Taverna, however, the staff said they had no record of the booking. Somewhere between the online system and the hotel there was a communication failure, but the La Taverna staff showed little interest in helping us sort it out. Eventually they directed us to another hotel which they said was "next door" (read: 500m away), but declined to lend us a trolley to take our luggage across or assist us in any way. So no, we didn't actually stay there, but nor will we now ... We've experienced incredible warmth and helpfulness from all sorts of people in Bali, but it's not something we found at La Taverna.

La Taverna is a nice hotel in a peaceful garden setting on the beach in Sanur, however it was by far the most expensive place we stayed in in Bali/Lombok/Gilis and not the best place we stayed either. The rooms are a little quirky, which is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful and it has a great location right on the beach. The breakfast is lovely although the restaurant seems way overpriced. I have no complaints per se with this hotel (although if I had to find one it would be that the towels were rubbish - thin, old and threadbare!) Its just that we had such great experiences with accommodation at half the price or less for the rest of our holiday that this place seemed decidedly average in comparison. Sanur is a good place to stay before your return journey home though as its only half an hour away from the airport.
