A classic Balinese mixture of seaside rice terraces, powerful waves and pristine beaches symbolize this region on the island’s southeast coast. Nicknamed “The Morning of the World”, Sanur enjoys stunning sunrises over Bali, as well as a buzzing town center, local food markets and 5km beach boardwalk. Some of our favorite Sanur villas are traditional in architecture and situated in residential neighborhoods next to the beach. Ketewel to the north is much more laid back and undeveloped in comparison. Most of the villas here have direct access to the beach and a peaceful, off-the-grid type of atmosphere.
