The Palm Garden Hotel – mid-priced stays in Sanur

Depending on the time of year, finding an affordable hotel on the south end of Sanur can be challenging. Luckily, we could book a stay at the Palm Garden Hotel, and it provided us with the perfect holiday accommodation in Sanur!

Nestled away from the traffic on Kusuma Sari, the Palm Garden Hotel offers a surprisingly peaceful retreat, removed from the hustle and bustle of Bali traffic.

The Palm Garden Hotel perfectly caters to value-conscious travellers like ourselves. Offering comfortable rooms at a mid-range price. Did we find a hidden gem in Sanur without breaking the bank? We think we did!

While our reservation listed our room as a Deluxe Garden View, nearly every room boasted this beautiful outlook. Some lucky guests on the second floor enjoyed a double treat with a garden and pool view!

The room was decorated in a typical Balinese style, with cane furniture and Balinese prints. The bed was one of the biggest we had (two singles pushed together) come across in Bali, and it delivered a good night’s sleep.

The room had a huge bathroom with a shower and a bath, not together but separate. The shower was at a walk-in level, and the bath had a handrail to assist in getting into it.

The room had a flat-screen TV with international channels and a nearly full-sized refrigerator to keep drinks cold. Stepping outside, you have a private patio with two chairs and a small table, which is an ideal spot to enjoy the Sanur sunshine.

One night, we were even treated to a spectacular lightning storm, a dramatic display witnessed from the comfort of our patio.

Facilities at Palm Garden

The Palm Garden Hotel is a great relaxing place, with its high walls separating you from busy streets. You can dip in the large outdoor pool, lay around on the sun loungers, or grab a drink from the in-house bar.

  • The reception can help you with finding a laundry if you need it done
  • The pool has a step entry but has a sturdy, full-length handrail for entry to the water. Steps are also long and have a good gradient down to the water for easy entry

Dining options at the Palm Garden

The hotel’s on-site restaurant tempted us with the smell of Indonesian dishes like Nasi Goreng and Chicken Satay.

For those with breakfast included, it was served each morning right on your patio. It was a great way to start your day with fresh fruits, flaky pastries, golden toast, steaming coffee, and refreshing juice, all enjoyed in the open air.

For an alternative dining experience, Via Via, a second restaurant attached to the hotel and open to the public, beckons with its tempting selection of tapas and aromatic coffee.

The popular Massimos Italian Restaurant and the highly-rated Fire Station restaurant are just around the corner. The Sanur Beer Garden is five minutes away for those who like a drink, while the next-door Artotel has a rooftop bar.

If you are an early riser like me, you can get a coffee and watch the sunrise at Stuja Di Panta, just down the road on the beach, from 6 a.m.

Exploring Sanur with ease

The Plam Garden Hotel’s location on JI Kusuma Sari is ideal for exploring. The hotel is wedged between the Artotel and the Holiday Inn, halfway between the roundabout on Tambligan and the beach.

Just a short walk from Pantai Semawang, the hotel offers easy access to swimming, sunbathing, and the Sanur Beach Path. The hotel’s proximity to Jalan Danau Tamblingan, Danau Paso, and JI Cemara means local shopping at local stores and eating at amazing restaurants can be done within a few hundred metres.

Activities and Entertainment

While Palm Garden Hotel is a relaxing environment, and simply lounging by the pool with a good book or enjoying a refreshing drink from the bar is always a good idea, Bali offers so much more. On Sanur Beach, you can try jetskis, go on fishing trips, paddleboard, and more.

The front desk staff can suggest nearby activities, or you can book tours and attractions through websites such as Klook before you arrive in Bali.

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. It is 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.
