Best Supermarkets in Sanur – Shop with Confidence

Sanur is not a large area by any means. It’s a small coastal location on the east side of the island. When staying in Sanur, you’ll find a mini-mart every few hundred meters and places like Indo Mart and Circle K.

Sometimes you need a more extensive shopping experience, a Western-style supermarket, to find those things you forgot to bring from home.

Sanur has two really big supermarkets, a few medium-sized supermarkets and small 7/11-type establishments. In this article, we will look at the best Sanur supermarkets you can visit.

Artasedana (previously known as Hardies)

This is an extensive supermarket in Sanur where you can buy food and clothing. You will also find an array of pool toys, which are all very expensive.

On the bottom level of the Artasenda Supermarket, you can buy nearly everything you need for your stay in Sanur.

Fresh fruit, vegetables, and some fresh meat are available, as are tea, coffee, and alcohol.

In the health and beauty section, you will find plenty of soaps, cleaning products, and hair care, but mainly local brands like Miranda, Harmony, Elipse, and Kispray.

On the store’s second level, you go shopping for clothing (shoes, pants, hats, and t-shirts) and local souvenirs such as incense, wooden bowls, dream catchers, and tea.

If you are a smoker, there is a large selection of cigarettes at every register. You will also find vapes available at the registers and two other small booths within the complex area.

What are our favourite items from Artasedana?

I always get my Harmony soaps, Kispray bottles, and snacks to take back to the apartment from here. They are well-priced and marked clearly, so I know what I am paying for. The staff is always helpful, and they have EFTPOS or cash options.

I also get my mangosteen from here and some mango jungle juice.

You are spoiled for choice in Grand Luck, Sanur. Everything you are missing from home is here.

There was also an extensive alcohol section in a small, separate area. We also found a homewares section where you can pick up towels, saucepans, and other household items.

What are our favourite items from Grand Lucky?

Milo nuggets are a favourite, and they have a great stock there. We also really liked the range of yoghurt and cheese we could get from home, but it is expensive to buy regularly.

A French bakery section up the front of the store, where you walk in, sells some of the best-looking cakes and pastries you will see in Sanur.

I could easily pick up all of my favourite Indonesian products, like Ellipse and Kispray, which are in high stock.

There was a small deli section at the back of one of the stores, but the layout differed slightly between stores. Some fresh meat and a large dairy case with French, Dutch, and German dairy items were available.

At the front of the store was a small fruit and vegetable section and some fresh baked goods.

Again, Downey, Kispray, and Miranda Keratin Spray are on the list of products I buy from here. I also bought some small packets of shampoo, conditioner, and streptomycin to put in our bathroom bag so we don’t have to carry a bigger bottle with us.

Best time to go to Bali

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 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 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.
