Information About Sanur:
* Sanur is located on the Eastern side of Bali, known for being more relaxed, quite, and calmness
* It is less crowded and touristy compared to Kuta or Seminyak
* Many shops, cafes, and restaurants are on the main road of Sanur (Tambligan)
* Beaches in Sanur have no waves, so they are friendly for infants and young children to swim in.
* Algae in the beach water has healing properties - including anti-cancer, anti-cellulite, and treatment of chronic diseases
* Taxi from Sanur to Seminyak, Kuta, or western side of Bali is around $3 - $6 USD.
* Bluebird Taxi is the preferred taxi service in Bali, as they always use meters and have responsible drivers.
Getting To Sanur From Airport
* Sanur to Airport (DPS) takes 10-20 minutes by car, and we have dedicated drivers available to pick you up.
* Airport taxis do not use metered rates, so unfortunately you must negotiate.
* It will cost around $8-$15 USD depending on traffic.
* Many taxi drivers at the airport are immigrants and do not know Bali well, so please order our transfer in advance.
* Our driver has a very comfortable car.
Renting / Riding A Motorbike:
* We have motorbikes available for rental for either one day, one week, or one month and more.
* To ride a motorbike in Bali, you will need an International Driver's Permit.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!
Thank you Alex for the fantastic service during our stay at Villa Jasmine in December 2013. The villa is very big and beautiful...what you see in the pics is exactly what you will get. The rooms & toilets are very well kept and clean. We requested to have a BBQ on the second nite of stay and Alex immediately bought a portable BBQ grill as the old one was spoilt by his previous guests. However, we did not get to use it as it was raining daily. Only one minor setback ie. there was no TV in the lounge.
Overall we had a wonderful time in Bali and would definitely recommend this villa to holidaymakers.
Alex and Tanushka were absolutely amazing, hospitable, organized, and extremely friendly. They nailed everything relative to the accommodations, from snacks and stuff in the fridge upon arrival to daily cleaning services (First day we came back our bags were unpacked fresh towels and made beds). Free pick up from the airport. Motor bike rental service. And did i mention the gorgeous estate all in balinese decor or and architecture. Kudos to you my friends.
ps. hope to see u guys again
What a fantastic villa! We were in villa jasmine, there is another villa called lotus also run by alex and tatiana.
First of all they were great hosts. Easy going, quick to respond. They arranged a pick up from the airport and met us. That is a breeze when you come in at an overcrowded bali airport with a porter every 5 cm shouting for your bags.
They really did their best to make or holiday comfortable. As they live very close by they checked in once in a while to see evrything was okay.
You dont need a five star hotel. With kids we always struggle with rooms in hotels and this is the ideal solution.
We spend 2 nights in the villa. With 2 adults and 3 small children.
The villa is very big, 3 separate villas as a matter of fact. A big living area and a beautiful pool. The rooms and the beds are spacious and one of the villas has an outdoor shower. Great in the morning with fresh flowers from the trees. And at night shower uder the stars!
The overall state of the villa is everything as on the photos and more. It is well kept, clean and in very good condition.
There is a large kitchen which is as it looks not used a lot but you really dont need to. Its a 10-15minute walk to lots of restaurants. Either on the beach or the mainstreet.
We ate at massimos. Excelllent Italian and local food and good service. Alex can explain the ins and outs.
Breakfast we had at ao @ mona lisa.
The only thing is that you need to cross the bypass and that is a bit tricky as it is very crowded. Best is to book or hail a cab (i advise bluebird, they are very reliable and tun the meter. Starting fare is 5,000 and to the beach/ center is aroud 15,000 rp). At night as the villa is close to the bypass you can hear some noise of the cars and honks but nothing dramatic.
Sanur itself is a nice place, relaxed, with good beaches with lounge chairs and plenty of shops, bars.
Its family oriented and not the night life is there but not as in your face as kuta will be.
In short if you book the villa, you will not be dissapointed!
