Swastika Bungalows
Ranked #37 of 78 Hotels in Sanur
Reviewed 12 August 2014

This hotel has an old wing where some of the bathrooms could really do with an upgrade as could the towels. But apart from these small facts it is a great place to stay and the staff are WONDERFUL! It has three pools and a great breakfast. It is well situated in the centre of the Sanur Strip.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are charming!

Spent over two weeks here as a retreat to write. Asked for a table on my balcony to sit and and work and was presented with a full office desk. I pity the person in the office giving up their desk, but my request was carried out with much humour and broad smiles.
This is one of the older places, and while it could use a bit of a spruce up in the bathrooms, here, you feel as if you're staying in Bali and not an expensive resort that could be anywhere in the world.
Great value for money and will be back for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Upstairs with balcony was my choice but steps could be difficult for older people.

Unless you are looking for top range pampering, Swastika Bungalows is the only place to call home while in Bali. Right in the middle of things and a brief walk from the beach, Swastika has been our place of choice for nearly thirty years.

Breakfast is included in the modest tariffs and includes eggs and pancakes cooked to order as well as a decent buffet that has a sumptuous offering of fresh fruits.

Accommodation is spacious and spotless, with daily cleaning and change of linen and towels. The staff, typically beautiful Balinese people are wonderfully welcoming and obliging. The landscaping has matured over the years into avenues of tropical greenery that feels both intimate and sculptured. Swastika feels like a very safe and hospitable village, tucked quietly in behind the bustling shops and restaurants on the main street of Sanur.

It will continue to be our family's preferred home away from home.

Room Tip: We liked the new deluxe section at the rear of the complex, but in our experience all are excellent...

Another beautiful holiday at this family owned hotel. We have been coming here for many years, and each time it seems to get even better. The staff are wonderfully friendly, and efficient at what they do (unlike many other hotels in Bali - some very much more expensive). After returning from our evening meal at about 10.00pm, we turned on the light, there was a bang, and the fuse blew. We told reception and the on-site electrician came within minutes and sorted the problem out (which included the fitting of a complete light fitting) - tell us that is not efficiency!!!
We definitely agree with "OliveNewZealand", Sanur is so much quieter than the other tourist centres (Kuta, etc), and this is what we want from our holiday. Those who want a "zippier" atmosphere - don't stay in Sanur, although there is plenty of entertainment, restaurants, and shopping, but with a much quieter ambience.
The Swastika Bungalows is in a prime location for everything, and although the laneway approach may be a bit daunting at first, what you find inside the complex is well worth the walk. The breakfast is very acceptable and the food is always well presented. Sure, there are hotels with far bigger buffets, but also far bigger prices. The breakfast is included in the price of the room, so is very reasonable - and do you really want a three course meal for breakfast?
The grounds are beautifully kept, and the pools (of which there are 3) are always crystal clear, and as clean as a new pin.
Hardy's supermarket is about 100 metres to the right of the hotel, an honest money changer is in the Circle K store opposite (by honest, I mean not one of the Kuta "magicians"), and many restaurants are within easy walking distance. You even get 20% off the food price at the Swastika Restaurant which is about 50 metres to the left.
Some of the standard rooms are a little old (mainly as far as the bathrooms are concerned), but they are in the process of being renovated, and I feel the comments by "Kazza11" are perhaps a little severe. This is a family owned hotel and they can't afford to shut the place down completely for an entire overhaul like the Hyatt has done, just down the road - the Hyatt is a major chain that can afford to do this, not a family owned business. Anyway, for the extremely reasonable price, my wife and I will continue to stay at the Swastika Bungalows, for as many years as we are able to travel - it certainly suits us, and we would recommend it to anyone. If you would like a room that is a bit more "up-market", there are deluxe rooms available around the new pool with the swim-up bar attached. The rooms are a little more expensive, but if you want a bit more luxury, it's there.
We arrived back in Perth on Sat 25th July, and the weather has been freezing ever since - we are already saving to get back to the Swastika for another 3 weeks in 2015.

At the Swastika Bungalows, we stayed for one night in two deluxe rooms. Our rooms are located in a new section of the resort, and these rooms are good en well maintained.

We stayed at Swastika because it was our last day in Bali and we wanted to be near the airport. It was a good choice. The rooms are good, a lot of trees and the different swimming pools between the buildings on the complex, give you the feeling as if you stay in a small resort. The beach is on walking distance and with lots of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, there is enough nightlife.

This is a good hotel for a day / night in Sanur.

Room Tip: Book a deluxe room at the new side of the resort. These rooms are quiet, good isolated and have a lo...

Sanur is so much quieter than Kuta etc and this place is an oasis. Balinese family run hotel, everything works like clockwork and the compound is always beautifully run, clean with manicured gardens and three swimming pools. The newer pool has a swim up bar which means it can get busy and noisier than the other two, so depending on your need you can choose which pool to lounge beside. Many of the older rooms are being renovated some now have interconnecting doors which is good for families. Prices still very reasonable and the cooked breakfast an added bonus. Hardy's supermarket a five minute walk away and the beach no more than ten. Lots of great restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms are worthwhile, very spacious with bath and shower and own dressing room where I g...

If you bored with 5 star hotel with modern experience, you must try Swastika Bungalows. This hotel gives you balinese atmosphere in every corner and detail of each building. You can see beautiful scenery in swimming pool.
