A hidden gem near the sea
You're looking to escape to a beachy haven but want to avoid the crowds – sound familiar? Situated in Bali's southeast, the enchanting village of Sanur boasts all the charms of a coastal paradise, without the crowds. Golden-sand beaches, calm waters, brilliant sunshine and lush coconut groves make this destination utterly enchanting, creating the perfect setting for a romantic sojourn.
Tucked away amongst the palms and down a hidden laneway, Kayumanis Sanur is just moments from the village's main attractions while still feeling blissfully secluded. Only a short stroll from Sindhu Beach, the private retreat also offers guests fantastic by-the-water dining at the nearby Kayumanis Seaside Sanur. Together, Kayumanis's Sanur offerings make for truly incredible beach getaways with all the trimmings.
Tranquil private villas
Inspired by Sanur's rustic character and surrounded by tropical gardens, each of Kayumanis Sanur's private villas are like a modern-day sanctuary. Beautifully decked out in traditional Balinese style, the one-, two- and three-bedroom retreats boast luxurious touches like private pools, breezy indoor-outdoor living spaces, gourmet kitchens and outdoor bathtubs (definitely fit in time for a soak under the stars!).
A sensational option for couples looking to get away from it all, the resort's one-bedroom self-contained villa is ideal for honeymoons and loved-up getaways. With a spacious suite-style bedroom (with a canopy king bed, no less) that looks out over breathtaking jade gardens, it's luxury and comfort combined. Helping to make things even more relaxed, welcome drinks, massages, daily high teas and 24-hour butler service are included in the standard room rate. That's what we call a warm welcome!
