The magnificent Tandjung Sari was the first hotel at which I ever stayed in Bali, back in December 1986 when traveling from Los Angeles encompassed nearly an entire day. What a thrill to discover that the legacy of this important institution of tourism and culture is superbly upheld under present management, which has tirelessly preserved all that is beautiful and magical about the hotel, its rooms (the outdoor shower was a particular favorite), gardens and beach. Although we weren't able to attend one of the wonderful traditional dance performances by local children who study under the hotel's cultural program, my wife and I were fortunate enough to witness a rehearsal which was joyous and greatly moving. Every member of the staff, from management to landscapers, are welcoming, warm and charming, and the food is every bit as beautifully prepared and presented as I recalled from 33 years ago. Tandjung Sari was as close to paradise as I ever experienced three decades ago, and paradise has not been lost.

one night stay in a bungalow with my family. Used it to stage our ferry trip next day ton Lembongan. The ferries leave from this area (Sanur). True balinese hospitality and architecture all over. You know you are appreciated when the staff knows your name even for on night stay. Everything top notch and excellent value for money. Beautiful bungalow, beach, restaurant, food and service. Would certainly return here, Highly recommendable.

We loved everything about this place: the peaceful atmosphere, the food, the comfy big rooms and the service is excellent. The staff in particular is really lovely and they make sure you get what you like. Highly recommended.

I find it hard to accurately describe just how much I love Tandjung Sari. My partner and I carefully planned our perfect holiday in Indonesia and decided to finish the trip in Sanur, Bali. We did our research and after reading about the hotel's history and watching the excellent short-film about it on YouTube, we chose Tandjung Sari. We stayed at the hotel from 19 May to 22 May 2019. As soon as we arrived at the property I knew we had made the right choice. We were welcomed and greeted like old friends and escorted through the beautiful, lush grounds to our Beachfront Bungalow (29). There was a sense of peace pervading everything. The bungalow was beautiful with many lovely little thoughtful touches. There is so much care and attention to detail. It was cool, spacious and restful with a large bed, luxurious tub, and both an indoor and outdoor shower. There was a quiet, relaxing area tucked up the spiral staircase. A place to rest and read while enjoying views of the pretty beach and gardens. The bungalow even has its own private garden which is beautiful and serene. Breakfast was included and was wonderful! You get to enjoy tea or coffee, choose a tasty fresh juice, relish a fruit plate, and choose between toast, croissants, or Danish pastries. Finally, you get to select a delicious main from the large menu! The Nasi Goreng was sublime. We ate dinner at the restaurant every night and the food was always superb and the staff so lovely. Their Beef Rendang is the best I have ever eaten. The drinks are delicious and it's so relaxing sitting at the comfortable bar or at one of the tables by the pool, next to the beach. The hotel facilities are perfect. We loved swimming in the cool, deep pool. It is shaded and peaceful. I love the intimate, boutique feel of Tandjung Sari. However, what makes Tandjung Sari even more special is the people. Every single person was so warm, welcoming, attentive and kind. I've been lucky to stay at many nice places but I can say with certainty that none have been quite as special as Tandjung Sari. We were very sad to leave, it was hard to say goodbye. We will be back! We can't wait to return to Tandjung Sari as soon as we possibly can. Tandjung Sari is magical.

Tandjung Sari has a very special quality that we first experienced in 1987. From the three gongs on arrival to the welcome drink at the beautiful beach-side bar, the management and staff ensure a very warm welcome to all guests. The rooms are extremely tastefully decorated, with every comfort including sarongs, beach hats and night shirts placed on the bed during turn-down. The extensive menu, the quality and presentation of the food is outstanding. We felt we should try a local restaurant one night, but it didn't measure up! We were lucky enough to be there for the Weekend Beach Market, which is a special night held during the dry season. To us, Tandjung Sari is about relaxation, a gentle swim in the pool, catching up on our reading on the sheltered day beds and the soft sea breeze as we enjoy our fabulous breakfasts, snacks and drinks, and dinners. All the management and staff were courteous, charming and professional and keen to ensure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. We're looking forward to our next visit.

We come here every year now, Tandjung Sari is like returning home, but better. The service by management and all the staff is outstanding. Their warmth and hospitality exceeds every other hotel worldwide I have ever stayed at. The rooms and the gardens and the beach are maintained perfectly. This is simply Paradise.

We are regular visitors to Bali and to the Tandjung Sari. We love it and our 3 children love it too. The rooms are a synthesis between traditional Balinese design and antiques and the quality of John Lewis - i.e. they feel understated but of beautiful quality. The outdoor shower and huge sunken bath is a lovely luxury. This is an enchanting traditional boutique hotel which seeks to nurture local arts by hosting a dance class and cooking classes. Its gardens are a thing of real beauty and the chill area around the pool and the bales in the villa gardens are great places to relax. This is all a welcome beautiful refuge from the friendly bustle of Sanur. The food at the restaurant is the best in Sanur and if you go elsewhere you are likely to be disappointed. The restaurant staff are delightful and always ready to chat they also have a great sense of fun and I still tease them about one of their staff who spent time developing a stripey new cocktail for us to try. The owners sit quietly by, unobtrusively observing that their standards of understated quality are maintained. The yoga teacher at the spa Mrs Chi is exceptional so well worth a try if you practise Iyengar I'm more or less moved to tears each time we leave but console myself that we will try to return soon....

Just returned home after 3 weeks on Bali. Our final 6 days was spent at Tandjung Sari. We had a terrific stay. The beach front location was delightful both day and night. Quiet, restful, wonderful staff and great food. No need to leave the property except to walk along the beach to look at the competition and be thankful that you are at Tandjung Sari. We heartily recommend!!!

Excellent and beautiful. It's ancient and modern. Only thing is that the rooms/villas are smaller than they look in the photos. But does not matter. Everything is simply charming, charming, charming. It's all just fabulous. The staff is amazing. The location is gorgeous, the decor, the pool, the architecture, the food......I can say enough.

What An absolute pleasure and joy to stay here. This is the fourth consecutive year we have stayed at this hotel, and we intend to continue to do so. The service is second to none - all the staff are so warm and welcoming, they simply cannot do enough for you. We should highlight the management Putu, Sugee, and Coco for their excellence in customer service. The food is delicious , the menu is large and varied. Needless to say we are leaving here a lot bigger than we arrived. The sunrise views are spectacular. I would get up at 5:45 everyday, as did a number of other guests, just to capture the views. I must have hundreds of photos by now.
