    Hi guys,
    I'm currently in Bali and enjoying the beautiful weather...despite it being the wet season! Looking to get out of the Kuta madness and over to Sanur for more relaxed atmosphere....Can anyone (Somtam?) point me in the direction of budget accomodation there? Around 150,000 a night would be great! Also off to Ubud tomorrow so any suggestions for there would also be appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Ahhh our Sanur stuff is being edited right now (should be online tomorrow) but at a glance, here is a direct cut and paste from the researcher's submission (note this hasn't been edited/fact checked)

    Little Pond Homestay
    Best value in Sanur 9/10
    Jalan Danau Tamblingan 19, Sanur
    T: (0361) 289 902
    info@elloravillasbali.com
    www.ellorabali.com
    Fan, cold water: 100,000 rupiah
    Air-con, hot water: 200,000 rupiah
    Air-con, hot water, satellite TV: 250,000 rupiah
    There are three types of rooms here and they are all incredibly good value. The cheapest rooms, which are normally booked in advance, have the same access to the lap pool and free WiFi that the more expensive rooms have, but they are sans hot water and air-con. All of the rooms are charming, very bright, come with a discount voucher for breakfast at Street Café out the front and are spotlessly clean. Our recommendation is to book this accommodation when you know you are heading to Sanur because it is quite often fully booked -- it is the best value in town.

    Pondok Santhi
    Great value near the boat dock 8/10
    Jalan Hang Tuah, Sanur
    Fan: 100,000 rupiah
    Air-con: 150,000 rupiah
    Pondok Santhi is a tiny little homestay directly behing the Perama bus stop and right next door to Agung and Sue Watering Hole I on Jalan Hang Tua. It’s a bit out of the centre of town, but is the perfect location for those seeking to catch the boat to Nusa Lembongan the following day. The rooms are immaculately clean, the beds a little on the stiff side, have cold water bathrooms and a ceiling fan to provide air circulation. There’s also a small dresser to add a little bit of depth to the otherwise bare rooms. The value here really is great and the location perfect the early morning boat to Nusa Lembongan. Air-con rooms are available at a premium.

    Coco Homestay
    Great backpacker value 8/10
    Jalan Danau Tamblingan, Sanur
    T: (0361) 287 381
    M: (081) 239 70480
    Fan, cold water S/D: 100,000/120,000 rupiah
    Fan, hot water S/D: 150,000/170,000 rupiah
    Air-con, hot water S/D: 200,000/220,000 rupiah
    The first thing that strikes you when you visit this very popular place is the incredible value on offer for this part of town. The cheapest rooms are bright, have thin hard mattresses and clean cold water bathrooms and include breakfast in the nightly rate. As the prices increase, as do the facilities such as hot water, air-con and better beds. The cheapest rooms are regularly booked out and it’s recommended that you call in advance if you have your heart set on staying here. A bonus -- the staff are very friendly!

    Ary Accommodation
    One of the cheapest places in town 7/10
    Jalan Danau Tamblingan, Sanur
    Fan, cold water S/D: 80,000/100,000 rupiah
    Air-con, hot water S/D: 150,000/170,000 rupiah
    Sandwiched in the middle of a trio of cheap guesthouses Ary Accommodation provides very basic rooms which are dark and depressing as much as they are clean and functional. And besides, you really can’t ask for too much at one of the cheapest places in town, but surprisingly breakfast is included in the price. Air-con and hot water is available for those that can’t do without, but are still on a tight budget. The staff here are nice enough, but beware the growling dog -- its bark is allegedly worse than its bite but that won’t be your first thought when it snaps at you.

    Yulia 1 Homestay
    Popular backpacker joint 7/10
    Jalan Danau Tamblingan 38, Sanur
    T: (0361) 288 089
    Fan, cold water: 120,000 rupiah
    Fan, hot water: 160,000 rupiah
    Air-con, hot water: 200,000 rupiah
    This place is popular with the backpacker set because of the big rooms and good value. The rooms are better than at Ary next door, but not as good as Coco two doors down with options including cold water, hot water and air-con. Because of its location inside a family compound, there is a distinct family feel here and if you stick around for a few days, you’ll blend right in. The beds are of a good quality, but we have reservations about the noise that might come from some adjoining rooms upstairs due to the lack of sound proofing in the peaked roof cavity.

    Agung and Sue Watering Hole II
    For those needing pool and air-con 8/10
    Jalan Danau Tamblingan, Sanur
    T: (0361) 270 545
    F: (0361) 288 289
    wateringhole_sanurbali@yahoo.com
    www.wateringholesanurbali.com
    Fan S/D: 150,000/200,000 rupiah
    Air-con S/D: 200,000/250,000 rupiah
    If you need air-con and a pool at a good price, this is the place to come. It’s located at the end of a quiet laneway off Jalan Danau Tamblingan and each of the basic rooms has comfortable beds with dated bedspreads, old hot water bathrooms, small verandahs and the option of air-con. The swimming pool is small, but it still very pleasant and is certainly a luxury at this price. If you don’t want the pool and don’t need air-con, there are better choices but everyone else this is a fantastic choice.

    Drop me a message if you're at a lose end in Sanur and fancy a coffee!

    Thanks! Little pond looks like the go! We're going budget in Ubud and have heard good things about Wena Homestay! I have a few hotel reviews for you from Kuta so will post those when i'm killing time in an airport! We'll be in Sanur Tues-Thurs and would love to meet up for a coffee...or a beer!

    Two great choices, I think. Little Pond is fantastic and Wena is basic, but amazing value. The cheapest rooms at Little Pond are such good value because of the swimming pool and the whole character of the place is just so different to most hotels in Bali.
