La Taverna Suites
Ranked #44 of 145 Speciality Lodging in Sanur
Reviewed 12 September 2009

We stayed in La taverna for a week after spending a few days in Uluwatu. I have visited and also stayed in this hotel before over the years and was always drawn back by its rustic charm - here are the Pro's and Cons:
It has one of the best locations in Sanur beach - very handy to everything.
Has a lovely tropical entrance set back from busy road, There is an upgraded dining area open to the beach and a gorgeous pool. (no kids pool). No swim up bar. Limited to 10 lounge chairs around pool. Lots of lounges/umbrellas on beach..
Be sure when you book you dont end up in the old standard rooms near the restaurant - which they now call superior. (Room 1,2,3). These are not yet updated and can also feature a tom & jerry showdown in the ceiling each morning. (is that a pro or con?) reported this to management and hopefully exterminated by now. The deluxe rooms are recommended they are lovely..most of the superiors are renovated. The daily breakfasts are sufficient - fresh fruit, juices, american breakfasts & criossants.. they have a good lunch menu try the wood fire pizzas! Overall the price range is more expensive than most dining in the area but you are paying for a rustic boutique hotel which attracts mostly older European $$ clientele. Would not recommend this hotel to families. There are many other hotels on the Sanur strip which cater well to kids.

We left Kuta and decided to stay in Sanur for a few nights. My partner booked a room at this hotel as the grounds at the front and entrance to the hotel look amazing. We were taken to our room and were very dissapointed. The room door was wooden and did not close properly leaving a gap for the mosquito's to attack at night, it was locked with a padlock through a metal ring. The shower was set into a spa bath that was sunken into the floor so you needed to climb down into it to have a shower. The shower head broke off the wall and the entrance to the bathroom required you to duck through as it was that low. There was no TV in the room either. Very expensive for what you get, worse than a budget hotel. We checked out and went and stayed just down the road at the Taman Agung which was fantastic and at only $50AUD per night was good for the budget as well.

We spent half our holiday up in Ubud at the Alam Shanti (which we loved) and half of it at La Taverna. Both places are great for different reasons and it was a good way to break up our trip. La Taverna has wonderful feel to it and we really enjoyed just hanging out there. It´s certainly not the most modern of hotels, although everything works fine, and that´s not what we were looking for from Bali. What´s great about the place is that it has this rather lost world feel to it quite unlike many of the other hotels we checked out in Sanur.. All in all a great trip and hope to return soon.

La Taverna’s bungalows in well kept tropical garden yards from the beach is perfect for couples. Our room was quaint but bright and has lots of hot water!! (After the freezing water in Ubud – this is heaven!). The breakfasts was great. Overall the hotel has a rustic charm though some of the rooms could do with some attention.

I have travelled to Bali over 30 times in the last 20 years. My life has changed alot in that time and so have my travel and accommodation needs. I am no longer single nor working in a high paying job. I am married with 3 kids who love the beach and being active. So when I discovered La Taverna Hotel (a recommendation from other school parents) I went straight home and googled it with due diligence. I am pleased to tell you that this year we are returning for our 4th family holiday at La Taverna Hotel.

It has everything our family requires for a great holiday. For my husband, a wave to surf out on the reef; the 3 kids (aged 6, 8 & 9) the list is endless:a calm, safe ocean to swim, paddle snorkel and fish in; a resort pool to endlessly jump in and out of; push bikes to hire and ride up and down the 10 km track right out the front of the hotel; friendly staff to play magic tricks with and the most unbelievable pizzas in the world; and for me La Taverna has a calmness that only the true Balinese exude by making my stress away. The staff that are always kind and friendly and seem to always know where the kids have run off to; great security so I can relax and feel safe at all times; the most amazing Balinese foods that we all eat..even for breakfast it's so good (not to forget the American breakfast which is so yummy it's dangerous: there's also dining on the beach and entertainment every second night so you don't need to drive anywhere...night markets, small restaurants dot the beach...paradise! And most importantly a chair on the beach to read my book and a waiter to refresh my glass whenever I look thirsty....we all love this place. It is a real holiday.

Don't expect a flashy hotel that you'd find in Gourmet Traveller. This quieter side of the islands has the best of both worlds. A night life if that is what you're looking for with bars and clubs but for us it still feels like a traditional Bali style village that hasn't lost its old cultrue. (In fact this place is so cool, Mick Jagger use to hang out at the bar here many years ago).

Yes the hotel is is of an older style but we wouldn't have it any other way. In fact I don't know why I am telling you this as it's really our little secret...so don't tell anyone how perfect this place is for a relaxing family holiday!
