Kejora Villas, Sanur Bali – Hotel Review
Kejora Villas Location
Jalan Danau Tamblingan No.25, Sanur Bali Indonesia
The Clever Voyage Team arrived into Denpasar Airport just before 10pm, with an approximate wait of 45 minutes for our baggage (fairly typical occurrence at this Airport) we didn’t reach the Kejora Villas until around 11.30pm. Sanur is about a 25 minute drive from the airport in light traffic. We were picked up and transferred by Kejora hired drivers for a charge of around $25AUD per van. The Villa was unlocked and sets of keys to the 3 individual bedrooms and living area were awaiting us. We were able to properly check in the following morning at Kejora Suites.
The Clever Voyage Team stayed a week in Villa 8 which offers 3 bedrooms, 3 en-suite bathrooms, a large living and dining area and a formal sitting room. 2 of the 3 rooms had comfy king beds, the 3rd room had 2 single beds – best suited for teenagers or the kids. Large clean bathrooms with showers, one room with a bath and shower. Each room has ample clothes storage and dressing areas.
This luxury villa is furnished in contemporary Balinese style with large day beds and tropical gardens with a sparkling infinity pool. The main villa compound houses a fully equipped kitchen, dining area that seats 6 and lounge room with large lounge, flat screen TV and sound system.
The villa is walking distance to all of Sanur’s restaurants, salons, supermarkets, boutiques and spas. Step out onto the beach side via the private Kejora beach entry and exit onto the 5km long beach walk esplanade. Kejora Villas-Suites has 24/7 security at the main entrance and the beach entrance and use of sun lounges on Sanur Beach at the Kejora Beach Club.
The villa has a large kitchen with full size fridge, oven and cooktop and a large supermarket, Hardy’s is an easy 10 minute walk from the villa. A $AUD5 taxi ride will get you back to the villas with your shopping. But… you are on holidays and who wants to cook when you have great restaurants, cafes and bars both on the beach and town side so close to the villa?! Food in Bali is by Australian standards, cheap, good and plentiful.
