Sarinande Hotel

Our rating:

The friendly Sarinande Hotel is a classic older-style Balinese midrange hotel; in fact it’s so old-school they named the street after it.

Well located around 200 metres to the beach, spruced up renovated rooms make this mature property worth a look. Housed over two levels of an L-shaped building and edging a swimming pool lined with dense foliage, a range of rooms are up for grabs.

Old school terraces, with old school maintenance. Still, this is a classic spot.

The lowest room category of “comfort” are in fact the least comfortable on offer. Though these unrenovated rooms (as of June 2017) are okay, we feel they are overpriced and bad value. It’s worth the additional 50,000 rupiah for the next level up. The tiled air-con rooms are clean, and the smart reno has bestowed a shiny fresh paint job. Tasteful decor offers local touches with coordinating batik runners, artwork and cushions, and modern-style black-stained wooden furniture contrasts with the earthy neutral colour scheme. Furnishings include a desk, bedside tables with lamps and ample storage, and higher categories add seating. Flatscreen TV with cable channels, minibar and a safe are standard amenities. Ensuite bathrooms maintain the same simple modern black/neutral theme with smart round washbasins and hot-water showers.

Aside from marginally more spacious rooms and larger beds, we couldn’t discern much difference between the three higher categories, so unless you prefer a king-size bed to a double, the superior rooms are adequate. Rooms open to wide furnished shared terraces, cooled by ceiling fans making pleasant outdoor living spaces conducive for meeting other travellers. However these areas look a tad tired with broken floor tiles and chipped furniture.

The small swimming pool is clean but unrenovated with the odd broken tile, and dated style. There’s plenty of seating though and a swim-up (non) bar—no drinks to be seen. You’ll probably be spending most of your day at the beach anyway. A poolside restaurant (that will serve you a Bintang) dishes up daily included breakfast and afternoon tea (how civilised). Staff are extremely friendly and one of the reasons this hotel remains popular. We think the rooms are a tad pricey, but considering the excellent location, it’s not a bad deal. For lower-priced unrenovated older midrange options, Bali Reski Asih Cottages is 400 metres north and Raja Gardens Hotel with (as it says on the box) expansive grounds, is 450 metres south.
