|The Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali’s restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients and special spices.|
Fairmont has taken over the former Regent Bali and renamed it the Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali. The resort, just a year-and-a-half old, sits beachfront on the southeastern tip of the island and has 120 suites and villas. Nice Touch: Its garden-like location puts it near the water and in the cool Sanur district and it’s just 25 minutes from Ngurah Rai International Airport.
|The Spa Suite has a separate treatment room for guests to unwind and relax.|
Fairmont, which has several promotions in place to celebrate the takeover, is touting the hotel as a good spot for couples and families, thanks to the fact that villas run in one- to three-bedroom configurations. A kids’ club includes a mini-cinema and a Sony PlayStation.
What’s special about Sanur? It’s Bali’s first beachside resort area, yet it’s avoided being taken over by more commercial enterprises. We love that the former fishing village has retained a quaint bohemian vibe with cafés and boutiques that once made it a jet-set hideaway for old Hollywood and royalty.
