The village of Sanur is typified by shady lanes, vine-draped coral walls, sedate leafy compounds, majestic trees and a five-kilometre shoreline within a gentle reef-sheltered lagoon. The ambience is mellow, restful and cosmopolitan.
Foreign visitors rub shoulders with the locals, chic fashion shops are bordered by traditional markets, and a plethora of hidden temples can be found squeezed in between art galleries and highly touted restaurants.
Swimming is safe, and surfers can take a boat out to the nearby reef. Water sports include catamaran sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and wakeboarding.
Villa Taman Sorga is just twenty-five minutes drive from Bali’s international airport, forty minutes from the cultural town of Ubud, twenty minutes from Sukawati art and handicraft market, and twenty-five minutes from the restaurants, shops and nightlife of Kuta and Seminyak.
The recent construction of the Sanur-Kusumba by-pass, positions Sanur within easy driving distance of most of Bali’s tourist attractions. Chauffeur or self-drive services are available at extra cost.
