Take in a Sanur Sunrise

Probably the thing that Sanur is best known for is its stunning sunrises. This will require you to get out of your comfortable beds and modern rooms at your hotel and head to the beach.

Sit on the sand and prepare for the sun to dance on the calm waters between Sanur Beach and Nusa Lembongan.

It would be best to head to the beach around 5.30 am, which is the only downside to this romantic experience. Watching a sunrise together can inspire your day and give you a sense of sharing an experience with your partner. One bonus is that afterwards, a good breakfast will await you at your hotel or on the main street of J.I. Danu Tamblingen.

Afternoon Tea

Some hotels in Sanur offer afternoon tea to suit your taste buds. Guests can expect a range of finger foods, from sandwiches and pastries to cakes with tea and coffee. The Intercontinental Hotel in Sanur offers afternoon tea in two different areas of the hotel.

The friendly staff will seat you for afternoon tea at Pier 8 on the beach or The Lobby Lounge. You can expect great service-free wi-fi as you enjoy an intimate afternoon tea in one of the best hotels in Sanur Beach. We recommend staying at the Intercontinental. Book your afternoon tea today.

The best time to visit 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 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.
