Maison Aurelia offers one Sanur’s most comfortable sleeps. The large multi-storey L-shaped hotel sits right by the busy street in the thick of the action near Hardy’s Supermarket, with no garden and a pretty, but limited pool area. However, the rooms are terrific, particularly the family ones.

Maison is a fine choice to rest your head if you plan to be out sightseeing or at the beach most of the day as other facilities are a bit lacking for its four-star standard, with the exception of the excellent Chris Salans Spice Restaurant on street level. To be fair, they opened in mid 2016, we viewed it in January 2017, and some facilities had not yet been completed.

Spacious and luxurious, the elegant decor features a classic colonial style with sumptuous furnishings and top-notch amenities. The beds are plush, and plenty of other comforts will give you second thoughts about leaving the room. Seating is plentiful without crowding the space and includes a lounge, armchair and desk (with chair). Everything you would expect and more is offered. Ensuite bathrooms feature white subway tiles and a marble-toped vanity, continuing the refined look, however there’s no tub. Rooms and ensuites are immaculate.

Balconies are more for a look-see than functional; they’re too small for furniture, but do sport pretty flower boxes. The layout of the family room is one of the most practical we’ve seen, designed like a small apartment with three separate rooms: a central lounge, and a double and twin room connecting on either side, both with ensuite bathrooms. Most rooms don’t offer much besides a street outlook, but rooms near the pool above the third floor enjoy views to the sea, although they can be noisy.

Kids' section and detached Jacuzzi are available at the pool.

On the ground floor of the hotel, amenities include a meeting room and private lounge decorated with classical Indonesian textiles and artefacts as well as a collection of coffee-table books on Indonesia. The outdoor pool is generous with a kids section and detached Jacuzzi, but not very shady. Umbrella-shaded sun lounges and curtained bales keep the rays at bay. The staff are welcoming and charming and able to organise excursions and transport including bike hire.

Maison Aurelia plans to open a spa, gym and kids club, and perhaps a rooftop restaurant or bar, which would boost the appeal further. Rates we were quoted are room only, but breakfast is available with some deals. If you are happy not to be beachfront, Maison Aurelia offers the luxury of a resort-style room for smaller dint in your back pocket. Classic style is a bit staid for your taste? You could consider the funky, contemporary-art-filled Artotel, or smart and chic Akana. Maison Aurelia is minutes from the beach, but if you’d prefer the whole seaside resort package, Segara Village would be our pick.
