Step into history at Tandjung Sari, Sanur’s sublime beachside classic resort, clocking up an age of more than 50 years. A favourite of the rich and famous since its beginnings as a private family getaway, this charming and somewhat modest boutique hotel successfully blends sophistication and simplicity.

Designed as an intimate village, large and private Balinese-style bungalows are peppered across a beautiful beachside garden. Options offer single- and double-storey, seaview, beachfront and family variants, all awarded similar charms with high thatched ceilings and antique patterned floor tiles.

Exquisitely furnished with antiques, art and traditional textiles, they include luxurious canopied four-poster beds. Rooms are air-con cooled, but don’t expect modern distractions like TV. They do however provide free WiFi, a minibar and kettle. Spacious indoor-outdoor bathrooms with hot-water showers and deep tubs, some large enough for two, give the impression of bathing in the garden; don’t worry, you’re well secluded. Shaded private pavilions, and garden seating provide respite from the world, so grab the coffee-table book of Tandjung Sari’s story from your er, coffee table, inhale the scent of the fragrant garden, and relax.

If the heat is too much, the delightfully shaded saltwater infinity swimming pool will cool you down and when hunger strikes, saunter over to the beachfront restaurant, renowned for superb Indonesian cuisine, then you can work it off in the gym.

Tandjung Sari has aged gracefully, and much of its appeal is also due to the easy-going hospitality of the lovely staff. Sanur offers many hotels with more facilities and amenities at a lower price tag, but this grand dame has a knack of capturing hearts, including ours. Tandjung Sari is an ideal honeymoon destination, but anyone who’s keen to escape the stress, demands and noise of modern life will find a little peace here.

Rack rates cited here are very inflated, so be sure to search online for a competitive rate. If Tandjung Sari is beyond your means, but charm and calm is your desire, Flashbacks offers a little of both or Sudamala Suites and Villas is a more upmarket option.
