I landed in Bali 2 weeks ago and wanted to avoid the Kuta chaos. I headed to "sleepy" Sanur on the east cost (less than $10 in a taksi from the airport).
Flashback's rates very well on Trip adviser, and is the "Top Pick" in Lonely planet. And deservingly so! I haven't looked at any other accommodation in Sanur, and I really don't feel the need to...
There are a range of rooms ($15 - $45) with varying luxuries. The cheapest have a fan, and shared bathroom with hot water. Its the wet season at the moment. So a/c isnt necessary. The afternoon storms cool things down enough.
The hotel has a boutique feel to it. Every room has its own charming character. The pool, ad common areas are very inviting, and all of the ground staff are friendly.
You get free breakfast with your accommodation. This includes toast, fresh fruit and tea/coffee. It may sound basic, but it is delicious, and the portions are generous. If you want to spend a little more you can order off the menu. The food is delicious, but a little pricey by my standards ($6 - $7). Most people might not have a problem with this.
You will not be disappointed if you book your stay at Flashback's.More
