Hassle-free shopping at fixed price shops in Sanur

I absolutely love shopping in Bali. There’s nothing like picking up a bargain and something that I love, but haggling, bartering and dodging the ladies who follow you get tiring. The constant ‘how much is this?’ and the inevitable 20-minute battle in the heat that follows makes me just sweat thinking about it.

For these reasons and many more, I seek out the fixed price shops in Sanur to ensure an enjoyable shopping experience. I leave happy that I have paid a fair price for something and that I have supported a local business.

What I will say is that I dislike haggling for the simple fact that the prices are always extremely high, and getting down to a fair price is where I struggle. I don’t like haggling over 20 cents, and if I would pay $10 for a pair of pants or shirt at Kmart or Target at home, why wouldn’t I in Sanur?

That is just how I feel about it, but I know plenty will disagree. I can make haggling or bartering in Sanur a sport, but I would just prefer to have the prices in front of me to make my shopping experience in Sanur an enjoyable one.

So I put this guide together of the fixed price shops in Sanur so you can make your shopping in Sanur experience hassle free and easy.

What is a fixed price shop in Sanur?

Fixed price shops in Bali are where the seller has the prices either displayed on the item or is able to give you a price immediately for it.

Many will have a fixed price below their name on their shop sign. We haven’t included places like Atasedana because they are known to be fixed-price shops in Sanur, and they may not have the replica items you are looking for.

Where are the fixed price shops in Sanur?

You will find plenty of little boutique stores along Jalan Danau Tablingan. These are mainly fixed-price stores, but you can come across some that still haggle over the price.

You will find the most popular fixed-price shops with all the fake items in the Baruna Beach Market and our favourite one in the Sindhu Beach Market.

You will find most of the shops with glass exteriors and air conditioning to be fixed-price shops on Danau Tamblingan. I have found one from a local lady.

Enny’s Fixed Price Shop – Jl. Danau Tamblingan No 192

People told me there were none on Jalan Danau Tamblingan, but I have shopped at Enny’s for a couple of years now while staying in this area of Sanur, usually at the Hotel Jati.

Enny is a lovely lady. She usually has a couple of her younger family members in the shop with her.

While she does not have a massive range, you can get plenty of sarongs, pants, and T-shirts from her there. If she doesn’t have it, she can get it, but if you do order from her, please go back and pick it up.

What can you buy at Enny’s:

  • Singlets, t-shirts
  • Hats and sarongs
  • Handbags but not replicas
  • Gorgeous dresses and skirts
  • Small trinkets and hair accessories

Fixed Price shops in Baruna Beach Market

Here, you will find the most fixed-price stores in one place, and they are the most popular shops in Sanur for prices.

Tootsies

This was my first time visiting Tooties which also has a small cafe at the beach end of the Baruna Beach Market. Tootisies has to be the most famous of the Baruna Beach Market fixed price shops.

I liked the range, but I did feel a little pushed by the ladies there on the day. They were showing me things I did not want to look at and had not asked to see. I get they need to sell it, but I found it was not for me.

What can you buy from Tootsies:

In this shop, you can find plenty of replica handbags, perfumes and clothing.

  • Perfume
  • Clothes – Bintang Singlets, hats and dresses
  • Sunglasses

Monica’s Fixed Price Store Sanur

Tucked away at the back of the alley at Baruna Beach Market is Monica’s. Nice clean shop with a great layout and air-con. I actually met Monica at the shop, and she was a lovely lady.

All you have to do is ask the server what the price is, and they will tell you. However, they did have some labelled items, like the incense coils and the Miranda hair spray.

What can you buy from Monica’s:

  • Hardcover suitcases
  • Miranda Keratin Spray
  • Incense coils
  • Slides – thongs and crocs
  • Replica handbags and

Sikis Fixed Price Store No 5

This shop is just across from Tootsies, and I can tell you it is bursting at the seams with clothing and other items, so much so it can be overwhelming to walk around and find what you are looking for.

The staff actually have to help you due to it being jam-packed with products. I found that once a couple of people got in there, it became a bit hard to focus on what you were doing, and it got very hectic very quickly for me.

What can you buy from Sikis:

  • Key rings,
  • Replica bags, perfume and sunglasses

Top tip for entry to the Baruna Beach Market

We all know the fear of seeing the ladies lined up on the beach waiting for you to walk past. As soon as you approach, you are greeted with, “You come to my shop?” and from there, you are followed and questioned continuously.

For first-timers to Bali, this can be really difficult, and for regular visitors to Bali, it is something you try to avoid at all costs.

You can gain entrance to the Baruna Beach Market off Jalan Pantai Sindhu. Find the Mahapala Hotel, and across the road from that is a small alleyway. It has a sign for the Segara Ink Tattoo on the side of the building.

If you go down here, it leads you to the back of the alley where all the shops are located. There are no ladies waiting there to get you into their shops.

Fixed price shops in Sindhu Beach Market

This is my go-to location, with only one fixed-price store in the Sindhu Beach Market that we could find.

Jeny’s Fixed Price Store

This one is my favourite, and I love seeing Jeny when I return. It is very much a no hassle shop, and Jeny is lovely. I find that she helps, but she does not hover around me, and if I ask a question, then she is happy to assist rather than constantly bringing me items I am not interested in.

What I also love about Jeny’s shop is that there are prices ON THE ITEMS, and if you are unsure, she will show you where the prices are so you know it is fixed-price shopping.

* Jeny has a small change room at the back of the store, but the shop is not airconditioned

What can you buy from Jeny’s:

  • Wallets, suitcases and handbags
  • Sarongs, hats and dresses
  • There is a small selection of jewellery
  • Incense coils and coil holders

We did notice that after we left Jeny’s Fixed Price Shop in Sindhu Beach Market, some of the other stallholders took us to their shops, and there was no haggling.

They gave us the same price as Jeny, and we actually ended up buying a little bit extra from the stores right up the back.

Is there a difference between Sindhu Beach Market and Baruna Beach Market?

Yes, they are two completely different beach markets in Sanur. We were looking for a shop as we were told it was at the Sindhu Market, but it was actually at the Baruna Market.

You see the markets are pretty close together

They are not too far apart, probably a 5 minute walk between the two.

Sindhu Beach Market can only be accessed via the beach, whereas Baruna has access from Jalan Pantai Sindhu as well as off the beach.

Tips for shopping at a fixed price store in Sanur

There are a few things that you should know before going into a fixed-price market store in Sanur:

  • Most shops will have EFTPOS facilities but will charge between 3 – 10% surcharge
  • Nearly all have a small changing room, but they can be hot and stuffy
  • The perfume is nice, but it is not original. Buy at your own risk
  • If you go back, they will remember you, fixed price or not
  • If they start to bargain, they are not a fixed-price store

*I bought a couple of fake perfumes, and I find them to be good on my skin. I have not had a reaction and have not had dye on my skin, either which I was told can happen. They smell the same but don’t last as long as my genuine ones.

Shopping in Sanur can be as good as Kuta or Legian. There just may not be the extensive and crazy amount of items on offer there. I must admit I was overwhelmed with the shopping options in Legian and would much prefer the smaller shops in Sanur, Bali.

Bali Checklist

The best time to go to Sanur

The best time to visit Sanur and other spots in Bali, Indonesia, is during the dry season, which runs from May to September. During this time, the weather is generally sunny with low humidity, making it perfect for outdoor activities such as walking, swimming, snorkelling, and reading a book while lying by the pool.

April and October shoulder seasons can also be good times to visit Sanur, as the weather is still pleasant but with fewer crowds. Pack your suitcase and book your flights for one of the best periods to visit attractions such as Bali Zoo, Waterbom and the Monkey Forest.

However, if you don’t mind the occasional rain shower, visiting Sanur during the wet season from October to March can also have advantages. The lush greenery and cooler temperatures can be refreshing, but ensure you have a waterproof bag and umbrella for your outings in case of a downpour.

It’s worth noting that Sanur in Bali is a popular tourist destination, and the peak season for tourism is from June to August. Planning your visit outside these months is best if you prefer to avoid crowds and higher prices.
