Sanur is quintessential Bali. Situated in the southeast of the island, this seaside town offers a long stretch of beach and shallow waters where you’ll find classic jukung fishing boats resting. Nearby, there’s Pura Blanjong temple – built entirely from coral and featuring inscriptions from the 10th century. The main street is wide and leafy, lined with independent art galleries and boutique restaurants. Sold? Here’s our guide to the best hotels in Sanur, Bali.

Make the most of this from the comfort of your king-sized bed as the large glass windows allow streams of light into your room. Jump straight into your private infinity pool from the sun loungers on the wood-decked balcony or, alternatively, order a floating tapas tray straight to your room.
