Tanjung Sari is precious original. One of Bali's
best kept secrets, Tanjung Sari Hotel was opened in 1962
as four - bungalow extension to his family by Indonesia Proprietor
Wijo Wawo-Runtu. Tandjung Sari Hotel is located in Sanur, Bali as
the forerunner of boutique hotels in South East Asia. The hotel
has 28 bungalows, evolved from traditional Balinese architecture,
constructions and techniques and material.
Tandjung Sari is more than a hotel.
It is gallery of the fabled Balinese artistic genius, the product
of a quarter-century creative partnership with the same group of
craftsmen, across two generations. Priceless antiques, both Balinese
and Dutch colonial, are also exhibited throughout the property.
Like Bali itself, the hotel is an easy in beauty dedicated to the
gods. The management sees itself as the guardian and patron of the
highest possible traditional standards in the art.
The separate bungalows were built in native style
and set in opulent gardens. Among them were discreetly placed small
stone temples with the traditional pagoda shape and black thatch
roof, Statue of gods and goddess appeared in niches. The room, with
its split bamboo walls, mats, rafts, poles tied together with bark
fiber, gave off vibrations which I can only describe as similar
to those one fells in a forest, as if natural materials never lost
their power to conduct life. It had the quality of refuge which
so few hotel room have...."
Every Tandjung Sari bungalows is as individual
and special as the guests themselves. Each Balinese- style unit
has its own private garden, some the sensual freedom of an open-air
shower. All provide top quality modern conveniences from air-conditioning,
king-and queen-size beds, baths and bidets, to telephone with International
Direct Dialing facilities, refrigerators and hair driers. Fine Indonesia
cuisine and the sunny courtesy of Balinese service at the hotel's
beach side restaurant and bar round off the Tandjung Sari experience.
These includes a library and a 50-foot lap pool.
