Once a sleepy fishing village, Sanur is located along the pristine beaches of the Southeast coast. Despite having an abundance of accommodation option, the relaxed coastal ambiance has made it a popular destination for tourists looking for a change of pace from the likes of Seminyak, Kuta and Legian. With white sandy beaches and water shallow enough to float around in all day long, Sanur is perfect for those wanting some serious downtime.
Being one of the oldest tourists destinations on the island, Sanur has many restaurants and cafes to choose from. We know it’s important to kick start and end your day with a healthy meal, so here are a few of our favourites.
Warung Dapur Deli on Jalan Kutat Lestari
We just love a mid morning coffee and cake at Dapur Deli in Sanur before our walk on the beach. With great coffee and healthy menu options, tourists are raving about this cozy little nook in Sanur.
Square One on Jalan Danau Tamblingan
One of our favourite spots in Sanur for brunch, Square One has something for everyone. From burgers to smoothies, you will leave feeling happy, full and nourished. Order the Man Bun (beef burger), you won’t be disappointed.
Genius Café on Mertasari Beach
Combining healthy food and a beach side co-working space, Genius cafe is the go-to spot for many locals, expats and tourists wanting to work with a view. Our favourite dish? The “Frijoles of Glory” – the perfect lunch for a productive afternoon.
Grocer & Grind on Jalan Danau Tamblingan
A local institution, Grocer and Grind first opened in Seminyak and expanded to Sanur, Jimbaran and Canggu. With a range of international dishes, there’s something to suit everyone. We thoroughly recommend ordering the Arancini and southern inspired Fried Chicken.
Soul in a bowl on Jalan Danau Tamblingan
Using fresh, organic ingredients, Soul in a Bowl offer a great selection of international cuisine and killer cocktails. If we had to choose one dish, it would be the Soy Bean Quinoa Potato Cake alongside a tropical Pina Colada.
Lilla Pantai on Jalan Duyung
Located beach side, this laid back warung is the perfect spot to take in the sunset with a glass of wine. With a range of local and international food options, we recommend the Nasi Campur or Tom Yum Goong.
The Nest Beachside Spa on Jalan Setapak
Known for their expertise in beauty therapy, The Nest Beachside Spa will have you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Try one of their pampering packages, we recommend the two and half hour Island Indulgence package which includes an invigorating body exfoliation and traditional Balinese massage.
