Lush foliage, an enticing swimming pool and a patchwork of traditional carved teak panels welcome you to Akana, a stylish small hotel in south Sanur.

The triple-storey hotel surrounds a courtyard pool and offers comfortable rooms in three categories. Contemporary elegant styling employs dark neutrals, natural textures, and a luxurious ambience. Large sepia-toned photographs of Bali enhance the mood. Beds and furnishings are super comfy and the well appointed air-con rooms offer the usual array of mod-cons, including a coffee maker. Dark stone bathrooms are equipped with glass-screened hot-water rain-showers.

Akana opened in September 2016, so was still gleamingly new when we visited in January 2017, but we get the impression the gleam will remain. Superior rooms are ideal if you plan to be out sightseeing or at the beach, and just want a comfortable place to lay your head; they offer the essentials with views to the street. However if you’re a light sleeper, a deluxe room towards the back would be better suited. Upper level deluxe rooms overlook the pool and add furnished balconies to catch the breeze. Ground floor deluxe rooms enjoy direct pool access and feature an open-style bathroom adding a separate tub.

The stone-clad pool is more of the splashing about variety than for serious lap swimming, and a there’s a good number of sun loungers for drying off. Akana has its own streetfront restaurant, Selada, and there’s some seriously good local food just down the road—pop into Warung Parahyangan for delish ikan bakar. Akana is a five-minute walk to the beach, and the hotel maintains its own beach club with sun lounges and umbrellas, so no haggling with other vendors is required.

We like Akana’s understated elegance and calm relaxing vibe and think it’s a solid midrange choice if you’re after hotel-style accommodation with a little more intimacy than a big resort. If you like the sound of Akarna, but your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far, Semarandana offers a similar style albeit not as luxurious. And if your budgets stretches in the other direction, Kejora Suites offer a tasteful upmarket retreat.
