Hotel Puri Tempo Doeloe

Our rating:
4 stars, based on 1 expert review

Hotel Puri Tempo Doeloe’s cute-as-a-button dollhouse-style collection of traditional wooden Indonesian houses is sure to delight notwithstanding its odd, bit-out-of-the-way location on Sanur’s bypass road.

Arranged village-style, the eclectic houses offer one-, two- and three-bedroom options, the latter two with private pools, all sprinkled around a tidy garden and decent-sized swimming pool. Painted in a rainbow of pastels and trimmed with wooden lace, don’t be tempted to nibble on a piece—they’re not gingerbread.

Interiors are just as sweet (albeit a tad small), with wonky wooden floors, canopied beds and a gallery of sepia photos; indeed a “palace of the past”. However modern comforts are not dismissed, and rooms are decked out with air-con, ceiling fans, TV, fridge and tea-making facilities, and there’s free WiFi. Fabulous hot-water bathrooms are almost as large as the bedrooms, with separate mosaic tubs and rain-shower, and another (cold-water) shower outside. Furnished verandas able you to practice that age-old art of porch sitting.

The private two- and three-bedroom houses are roomier and adhere to the same cute and quirky aesthetic. The swimming pool is divided into three sections: for munchkins, paddlers and swimmers, and offers shady lounges, and a comfortable bale to put your feet up. If you fancy a drink, an open joglo with deco-style lounge chairs has a poolside bar, a relaxing spot for a tipple. To help you tranquillise into full relax mode, an onsite spa will have you sorted.

The attached restaurant, La Tartine, serves your included breakfast, and is worth a stop even if you’re not staying to sip a coffee, munch a sandwich and enjoy the somewhat pun-filled jokey decor.

Staff are friendly and professional (and dare we say sweet). We love everything about Hotel Puri Tempo Doeloe, except the location: it’s a good 25-minute walk to the beach, and 10 minutes' to most restaurants (excluding their own). If you have your own transport, it isn’t an issue, as there’s parking. However taxis can be difficult to come by in this area, and the laneways are not so pleasant to wander around late at night (not unsafe, just not well lit and full of dogs). It's a pity there’s no local shuttle bus. It’s fine if you’re happy to just sit and soak up the atmosphere, but we just want to scoop the whole place up and move it to a better spot. If you’d like to be closer to the action, consider Kolonial House, Gardenia Guesthouse or Flashbacks.
