Sanur is Bali's oldest fashionable resort area and is an established beachside town. In spite of the great quantity of restaurants and accommodation, it does have a quiet and relaxed feel to it. Generally speaking, Sanur is slightly more expensive than Kuta but cheaper than Seminyak. Sanur is favored more by the middle-aged and older families, particularly Europeans.
The Sanur area is squashed in between the main Jalan Ngurah Rai bypass and the beach. One main road called Jalan Danau Tamblingan goes north to south through the town, so don’t worry it is easy to get your bearings with reference to this road.
