Oasis Lagoon Sanur Hotel is a fairly new 4 star hotel in Sanur area located not far from downtown Denpasar, about 15 minutes and 35 minutes from Ngurah Rai Airport. This hotel actually does not have direct access to Sanur Beach, but still reachable in walking distance, or if you kind of lazy to walk, they provide bicycles to rent and shuttle bus to get there.
Drop off Area
The first time I enter the drop off area, I was attracted at their canopy design, which combines traditional Indonesian architecture with modern architecture (I love how they ‘pull’ the roof down so they can create the semi open space more interesting.
The main lobby is huge with not much furniture (and you can see the exposed traditional roof structure which makes traditional architecture feel strong here), oh and they offered welcome drinks (some ginger-lemonade I guess) while you were waited for check in. This lobby is directly connected to the restaurant, and in the background you can see the lagoon area, which really really is my favorite area in this hotel.
The first time I see this hotel on the internet, I was interested with its unusual concept where we can directly ‘dive’ to the public swimming pool (called the lagoon area) right in front of our room. Well, there are several type of room in this hotel, but if you want to experience something extraordinary (unless you have some privacy issue), you should try the Lagoon Access Room. In this room you can access the pool right in front of your balcony (pool only can be used from 6 AM – 9 PM).
Meanwhile I, still need some privacy so I chose the Cabana Room, with private pool inside. This room is just perfect for honeymoon couple, the room is quite big with your own swimming pool and pool deck. The pool is not as big as you think, around 4m x 3m and 1.5m deep. Unlike the lagoon area, you can use this pool whenever you like, but if you want some midnight dip, you should tell the reception beforehand because usually they will turn off the light and water pump in pool deck area for energy saving reason. Oh, and another privilege is you can still access the lagoon pool area too.
For breakfast, they offered the standard buffet like any other hotel provides, such as omelette, salad, cereals, toasts and croissants, and some Indonesian food like fried noodle, fried rice, and so on.
Well, overall I was quite satisfied during my stay in Oasis Lagoon Hotel, Sanur. But I want to share my little unpleasant experiences here too, so my key didn’t work the first time I checked in to my room, so I have to use their central lock, but they’re not changed my key right away (they gave me another key in the night after I go outside the hotel for a moment), but the key still didn’t work. So, they decided to check the door lock machine instead and fixed it. Even though it took some time, but I was thankful to the staff. Oh, and one other thing is when I called the bell boy from my room to help me bring my luggage to the lobby, it took almost 30 minutes for him to come, so I have no choice to bring my own luggage to the front (but thankfully I met the bell boy halfway and he apologized and took my luggage right away). May be this little thing is quite unpleasant for me, but the staff still tried their best to make up their shortcomings, so yes, I will stay here again on my next trip. Well, see you on my next post, dear wanderers!
