Only 8 suites on a huge block of land, this is a 'slow reveal' hotel. Originally part of a much larger hotel (most rooms are on the block next door and this part is currently closed for refurbishment), the 8 suites are well spread out across the property. We stayed in a suite with a huge private garden. The suite had a large open to two sides verandah with kettle, TV couches etc. The whole suite is old style Bali accommodation, with Balinese doors inside to the bathroom and separate toilet. Having said this is older style, it was immaculately clean, really well furnished and had a king size bed that was a little softer that the usual Bali/Lombok ones we get at similar style accommodation (this was great - very comfortable). A/C was nice and quiet and a good mosquito net over the bed. The pool is on the smaller side, but as there are only 8 suites it was never crowded. The property straddles the boardwalk along Sanur beach, with buildings on the town side and beach chairs/umbrellas nearest the beach, and three well laid out beach shelters nearest the property on the boardwalk. These are tremendous, nice big lounges with fabric - not vinyl covering, trees over the top of the shelters, they are a lovely shady, cool place to sit, have breakfast and relax and watch the world go by. Plenty of choice for breakfast, we had fresh juice, coffee, omelettes, fruit platter and a selection of breads/croissants on our first day there. The next morning staff remembered what we had had and asked if we wanted the same (we could have had something different, but it was also nice not to have to go through the menu again each day). Staff are relaxed, friendly and the manager really helpful with a great knowledge of food and Sanur with excellent English. The manager was very happy to let us have a late checkout on our last day waiting for a later flight out of Bali. All in all a good quiet location near the night food markets, we will definitely return.
We stayed in this small and amazing hotel for 3 nights. The management and the staff were super friendly and the service was excellent. They take care that you really enjoy your holidays in Bali. The hotel is a charming small place with a great location at the beach. The suites/rooms are clean and well designed in a modern Balinese style. We stayed 2 nights in room 42 with a nice private garden. The hotel offers suites/room for all kinds of travelers. It is a place for couples in love, families and friends as well. A lot of restaurants, beach Warungs, bars and other places are in a walkable distance. The beach and water was clean. The cabanas on the beach are perfect to spend the day there. The restaurant and bar menu is reduced to max, the food and wine was good. It is a good spot for watching the sunrise, if you are an early bird. Considering the human scale for the hotel concept and the design, makes it to a pretty holiday oasis.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and really enjoyed the staff and the location. They upgraded us into their best room near the beach as some of the other rooms are a bit old and tired. This is a boutique Balinese hotel with lovely grounds. The owner is working on rebuilding and it should be a good hotel again soon
I have stayed at La Taverna several times before and was surprised on my arrival late at night. First, I was afraid that they were renovating the hotel but in the morning I found out that the fairly big hotel had been transformed into a small and very authentic hotel under Balinese management. In fact, the hotel now feels much more ‘like Bali’ and is also much more personal than before. Staff and management are very professional and took very good care of us. In the mornings, we could have a very nice breakfast either on the private beach or in the beautiful garden next to the pool. Massages could be arranged in the room or on the beach and all our needs were taken care of: coffeemaker and minibar in our outdoor living room, mosquito repellent in the room and on the terrace, umbrellas wherever you might need them, lunch on the beach and safe, wifi and free bottles of drinking water in the room … So when we left after five days, we decided that we would definitely come back to this little paradise on the beach during our next trip to Bali. I very much recommend this hotel if you are looking for peace and quiet away from standard tourism in the centre of busy Sanur and if you want to meet some very friendly Balinese.
We came to La Taverna after a bad experience in an other resort. We only booked for one night so we could relocate when it was not good. But after 10 minutes in La Taverna we booked for 7 other nights! The location is perfect: on the beach with deckchairs en pavilions. The 8 rooms are fantastic: airco sleepingroom and bathroom and outside a sittingroom with fan. The staf will do everything to pamper You. We had a great time. The reviews I saw did not do justice to La Taverna; sure there have been changes; it is much smaller than it was. There still is work to be done but we saw in those 7 days hard working people who under new management will make La Taverna great!
This hotel could have been so nice if it had been taken care of. The rooms are musty and smelly and not very clean. The ac was not working properly. The linen was old and had mildew. The sunbeds could have been retired years ago. The breakfast was mediocre. I would not recomend this hotel. It is not value for money. Really overpriced. Positive was: The staff was friendly and helpful though, and location was great.
Booked for 5 night, only stayed for one. The place is very run down, and the AC was unable to cool the rooms. We spoke with management about the issues, and they tried to find solutions, but were unable to fix. As we'd booked through Hotels.com, they arranged a different hotel for us. Hotel was close to beach. At night, the lights on the paths were non-functional, so we were stumbling around in the dark trying to make it back to our room.
Booked this hotel but it has closed , it operates as a suite only stay now, the beach area Is closed, restaurant is closed , pool near beach is closed and green . Please be careful booking this as its not like the photos . Real pictures attached
La Taverna Suites are exceptional if you have had enough of the cookie cutter hotel experience or travel for a living. It is like visiting the home of your friend! Quirky but cool. The mature trees and the beachfront location are magnificent. Ibu Ari is super as well as her team!
My husband and I have stayed here twice. First time was in a private garden room and it was lovely - though he kept hitting his head on the very low doorway. Second time we had a family room near the restaurant, which was a little dark and gloomy but ok. What we really liked were the beach-side cabanas and the pool. The breakfasts were fine, but I would suggest dining elsewhere. Coffees were lovely. All up? There are better places to stay for less money. But it is a convenient location and the grounds are lovely.
