Sanur has long been Bali’s classic destination, offering an authentic, laid back atmosphere and retaining strong roots in the local culture whilst much of Bali shoots towards the future. This is where Sudamala Resorts established its flagship brand, Sudamala Suites & Villas, in 2011.

+The quiet coastal village is by all means the perfect fit for Sudamala, who has created a haven for those who crave an artistic and cultural experience. With Sanur’s long history with art – welcoming renowned artists since the 1920s – Sudamala has embraced this artistic history throughout its resort. Original art hangs on the walls, artisanal carvings and trinkets fill an empty space and the Sudakara Artspace welcomes exhibits the work of local artists.

34 luxurious villas and suites welcome any guest; you’ll walk into a space that embraces classic contemporary design enriched with traditional Indonesian elements, as Sudamala believes in honouring the local culture that surrounds it.

This boutique destination sprawls out over its Sanur grounds to create an open space that allows the coastal breezes to sweep through and for the tropical gardens to flourish. The shimmering swimming pool takes centre stage of course, the perfect place to lie under the Bali sun while enjoying a read from the resort’s eclectic book collection and simply enjoy Sanur’s calming ambience.

The rejuvenating Sudajiva Spa is another destination for relaxation. Like the resort, the spa blends the ancient and the contemporary, offering a blend of healing therapies. The Ares Steak & Pasta restaurant serves daily à la carte breakfast and international cuisine, enjoying a view to the quietly bustling Sanur streets.

If you’re looking beyond Bali, then laid-back Lombok beckons. Located on a few bays north of the popular Senggigi area – Lombok’s shopping, dining and nightlife area – Sudamala Suites & Villas Senggigi enjoy a serene beachfront spot.

Embracing a stunning tropical design and seaside location, the resort looks out to Bali’s majestic Mount Agung in the distance. At sunset, the sea and sky light up with colour and warmth. Again, artisanal and local elements are brought into the warmth and feel of the 35 suites and 7 villas. The al fresco Olah-Olah restaurant sits behind Sudamala Senggigi’s picturesque swimming pool, that seems to extend out into the blue of the ocean.

Other than these two stunning resorts, Sudamala Resorts is welcoming more destinations to its expanding portfolio. These include the stunning Seraya Resort (soon to be rebranded as Sudamala Resort, Seraya) on Seraya Kecil island, Flores and Bajo Komodo Eco Lodge in Labuan Bajo, Flores and soon to be opened Amed Lodge in Jemeluk Beach, Amed, Karangasem.
