Set directly overlooking kiddie-friendly Sanur Beach and with great facilities, Maya Sanur Resort and Spa is a good choice for a holiday with your youngsters.
Located in the centre of what was once a sleepy fishing village and is now a compact, thriving tourist village, Maya Sanur Resort and Spa has perhaps the most eye-catching design along Sanur’s main street. The contemporary interpretation of Balinese culture has well thought-out indoor and outdoor spaces and feels cool and shady thanks to the leafy, water-rich design.
The welcoming ambience invites guests to relax and unwind alongside one of the swimming pools, in the Tree Bar overlooking the ocean, or lying on the outdoor daybeds of the lagoon-access rooms. Situated along the length of the resort’s long, shallow lagoon, all these rooms benefit from the shade provided by the vines that have wrapped themselves around the vertical oversized fish basket-inspired dividers that separate the outdoor lounging areas and provide privacy. Inside, the rooms are plush and understated, with high-quality furnishings, linens and electronics.
The deluxe garden rooms are perhaps the best for families travelling together. Located in the tranquillity of the verdant garden and within steps of the family pool, 16 spacious interconnecting rooms are available designed with families in mind. Each room has either one king or two double beds, as well as a comfortable daybed/sofa that can accommodate an extra person. The furnishings and accessories are deeply rooted in nature, while the bathrooms are spa-inspired, with creamy marble and signature amenities.
Dining at Maya Sanur is a pleasure with three restaurants and the gorgeous Tree Bar – the perfect place to enjoy a cooling drink, innovative cocktail, casual meal or light bites with cooling breezes directly off the Indian Ocean. Set on three levels and around a huge tree, this chic retreat is located directly by the golden sands of Sanur Beach.
If you are looking for a more substantial menu by the beach, then Reef, the resort’s elegant all-day dining restaurant, has a good range of international and Asian food, and diners can sit at tables in pods that seemingly float in the lagoon. Kids’ menus suitable for different age groups are available and all come with age-appropriate puzzles and colouring. Children who show their puzzles to the wait staff will receive a free scoop of ice cream to round off their meal.
Graze also offers creative and stimulating menus for the kids, while engaging adults with a satiating menu from breakfast through to dinner, superb local coffee, freshly baked European breads, cakes and pastries, innovative healthy drinks and sandwiches to take away to picnic where you choose.
With an esplanade stretching for miles the whole way along Sanur Beach, plenty of water sports – including the astounding kite surfing and more peaceful glass-bottomed boat rides – numerous cafés, shops and spas within walking distance and a safe beach with calm seas, Maya Sanur Resort and Spa is in the perfect location to keep the whole family happy and entertained.
