“I am in LOVE with Gangsa!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

I stayed here at the middle of my Bali trip with my boyfriend and decided to end my trip at the Gangsa on my own. I wanted to relax my final two days but still be near the airport DPS (40 min away). Gangsa fits the bill. It's a splurge since you can get a homestay for 10% of the price of a nice hotel in Seminyak for 20% of the price. However, at Gangsa, you do get a one bedroom pool villa with an office and outdoor living room with dining and kitchen... you do get the most wonderful staff and most beautiful private villa. In the US, the villa cost is equal to a 5 star hotel room. If you want to live it up for a bit, stay at the Gangsa. It is a perfect retreat and hideaway from the real world. Also, extra perks: High tea, free shuttle to Kuta, free shuttle to Sanur town and private Gangsa beach (complete with lounge chair and service), and more! Highly recommend if you are looking to relax and have some down time in the quiet town of Sanur.

Room Tip: Villa Kempur for 1 bedroom villa!

All the villas are named by baliese music instruments. The "kemong" villa is cute and gorgeous; nice to work at second floor and relax at main bedroom downstair; pool is clean and cool which did release one's tense and the high tea is just a lovely refreshment. Sanur is a small but attracting town which is definitely worthy for a try. Gangsa's beach club is also not far away with free transfer; the beach is so nice and suitable for reading and sunbath; and the beach picnic: if you order this lunch just make sure you guys are hungry as the food s are yummy and way more than you think haha! The general manager Iby Agustini is such a lovely lady that her smile brings you good mood! If you look for a peaceful holiday with your lover or family, The Gangsa is quite a fantastic choice. Will be there again undoubtedly.

This is a very lovely small villa with great home feeling. Everyone there is so friendly and they do love their job. Only thing is, it is a bit distant from the Sanur downtown and the beach. There is a shuttle car can take you to and back at the time you wish which is very helpful. We love the quiet atmosphere and will recommend to anyone who is looking for an undisturbed vacation.

Everything works well here - the staff are very helpful. There are central facilities for this villa/hotel such as reception and dining but most guests seem to eat out in local restaurants. We brought food into our villa one night from a local warung - a good idea because the room service and dining room options are quite expensive.

We stayed in a 3-bedroom villa which was beautiful - lots of space and the breakfasts (included) were excellent and brought to our dining table. It is very quiet and peaceful here - great for relaxing for a short trip or before or after a further journey into Bali or the islands around.

Sanur is very well located in Bali, in between the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, and the sleepy Ubud village. I first stayed at the Gangsa in December 2011 and returned again in 2013. It's an excellent base and the staff took good care of us under the management of Ibu Agustuni who is lovely. Villas are simple but tastefully furnished and the excellent breakfast,welcome drinks and delicious cookies stocked in the villas make the room rate great value for money.

At the very end of our trip in Bali, we stayed at the Gangsa for 3 nights. This was a huge splurge for us and it was completely worth it! First: we were upgraded to a 3-bedroom villa (we'd booked a 1-bdroom villa) and so that was very exciting. The place is gorgeous, spacious, and so well maintained. It's extremely clean, beautiful big bathrooms, complimentary beverages in the fridge, and the pool! Such a thrill to have our own pool.
Staff are wonderful -- every single person. We really felt as though the staff would do anything to help us enjoy our time there.
Food is delicious and a nice variety (although a warning for anyone who has food sensitivities or allergies -- there's a lot in the food that isn't listed on the menu so you need to be careful. It would be really wonderful if hotels of this class started to list primary ingredients in their menus). High tea was really fun -- such a treat. Breakfasts were also delicious.
The facility provides transportation to the beach and to Sanur which is fast and very professional. And my son loved the fact that there was cold water and cookies in the car! We spent most of our time hanging around the villa, though. It was just so relaxing and beautiful.
The only suggestions I have are to update the TVs (they're really old and reception in the bedroom was horrible) and to have better internet--the wifi was often down or really slow. In spite of those complaints, we still think this is an excellent place and hope to return.

I have wanted to go to The Gangsa for a long time and was so glad to stay there for 3 nights at last in June! My friend and I had a fantastic time and wished we could have stayed there longer. It was really hard to leave and it was that good.

From our arrival to the check out time, We felt that we were sincerely looked after and it was always a delight to be greeted by the friendly faces of the staff every time we met them. We had a rather busy schedule while we were at The Gangsa (we now truly regret that we didn't spend more time in our villa...) but everything was perfectly taken care of even when we weren't at the hotel. The High Tea service (complimentary and daily 14:30 – 17:30), for example, was left in the fridge so we could have it when we returned to our villa at night. Both my friend and I had our birthdays just before we arrived in Bali and The Gangsa provided us a surprise cake and a birthday song by the staff. We wanted extra mosquito coils placed in the villa and within 5 mins of my call to the reception, someone came and set them up swiftly with a smile. Even the general manager personally visited us one morning and arranged all shuttle service and restaurant bookings for us! All small things perhaps but every little thing has made our stay stress free and memorable.

The villas (total of 11) at The Gangsa were as equally superb as the people working there. Since The Gangsa is not a brand new property, it may not be equipped with those modern gadgets such as rain shower or Nespresso machine, but that didn't bother me at all and I was so happy to be surrounded by the beautiful matured garden and swimming in the large blue private pool. The outdoor living room was decorated stylishly in a traditional Balinese style and I really enjoyed chatting on the comfortable sofa there with my friend until late every night.

And the food, I strongly recommend to try the Balinese Rijsttafel course meal at the hotel's Gong Restaurant. It was absolutely delicious and plenty! The chef is obviously a really talented person.

The Gangsa is run by Kayumanis Group and I am utterly in love with the standard of the service the company offers across all the properties (Kayumanis Ubud, Kayumanis Jimbaran and Kayumanis Nusa Dua). It is very personal, friendly and most importantly, always professional. The staff know how to offer their guests something really special and unique. There have been many new hotels and villas opened in Bali since I started going there but I can confidently say that Kayumanis still offers one of the best hotel experiences on the island. And that's why I keep returning to Bali just to experience the Kayumanis magic again and again.

Terima kasih banyak The Gangsa for everything. And I hope to be there again soon!
