We arrived at Segara Village Sanur via the beach and all I wanted to do was throw my bags down and jump straight into their beautiful swimming pool.
What’s not to love about swimming up to the edge of an infinity pool and looking out over the ocean? The unique design of this pool in that the sun lounges were themselves fixed in shallow water, was something I hadn’t seen before. As we made our way to the lobby we got our first glimpse of the gorgeous gardens that make up this huge property.
Once the formalities were taken care of we were led to our bungalow. All rooms at the hotel are segregated into village like areas depending on their type. The deluxe bungalows in our village all had a bright red day lounge on their terrace area.
Our room opened via a floor to ceiling sliding door. As there is so much plant life at the property another window in the room – also floor to ceiling – let in lots of natural light and allowed us to to experience staying within nature. Our room had a large bed and a day bed perched at the end which was very comfortable. The room included all the modern conveniences we needed such as TV, fridge and excellent working air conditioning!
My husband was very happy to see a bathtub in our bathroom. Again, windows let in the light and the bathroom had been designed really well to incorporate the storage area for our bags along with the safety deposit box. We were able to close this area off via a door so our room wasn’t cluttered with our luggage.
Apart from the main pool near the beach the hotel offers a smaller lagoon style pool near the lobby, a generously sized swim up bar within a jacuzzi and a private pool for their club room guests. The varying areas means guests are spread out and everyone can enjoy a relaxing holiday. For the little travellers the Segara Village Sanur provides playground. There’s also a pool, table tennis and foosball table for the big kids! Bikes can be hired to explore the area and if you’re feeling really active, guests can have a hit of tennis.
Byrdhouse Beach Club at the Segara Village Sanur is where guests can chill out with a cocktail.
You can also order a delicious brunch and a healthy juice from their extensive menu or come down for their complimentary afternoon tea. Also on site is a crepe cart along with a bakery and pizza kitchen if you’re craving a western comfort food.
We were staying at the hotel for their weekly Balinese cultural night and it was a real treat to enjoy some tasty local food whilst enjoying the musical and dance performances. Tables are set up on the beach decking area with twinkling lights in between the trees adding to the ambience. The performance included eight traditional dances, the ladies are so beautiful and mesmerising to watch.
The food was delicious! I’ve not found many restaurants serving the fresh Balinese salads so it was great to have them. My favourites were the Sayur Urap Bali and the Lawar Gedang – translated: steamed vegetables with grated coconut and young papaya with Balinese sauce. Other weekly events at the Byrdhouse Beach Club include a BBQ and live music on Wednesday and Friday nights. To find out more regarding the Byrdhouse Beach Club visit their website here.
Our stay at the Segara Village Sanur was lovely. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well kept. This family run hotel continues to improve and impress its guests year in year out. To find out more about the Segara Village Sanur you can visit their website here.
