Sanur (Indonesian:Pantai Sanur, pronounced sah-noor) is a coastal stretch of beach of Denpasar city of southeast Bali, about 30 minutes drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, which has grown into a little town in its own right. A 5.1 kilometers of the Sanur's coastline from Matahari Terbit Beach to Mertasari Beach has been ready reclaimed in 2008.[1]

The northern part of Sanur beach was used as the landing site for the Dutch invasion troops during the Dutch intervention in Bali (1906). During World War II, Sanur was again the entry point through which the Japanese forces landed to occupy the island of Bali.

Today Sanur contains a number of hotel resorts such as the Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali and Bali Hyatt (not to be confused with the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua). Sanur is also home to a growing number of popular villa resorts, such as The Zen Villas

Sights

Traditional fishing boats can be seen on the beach of Sanur offering a scenic view of the island Nusa Penida.

Adrien Jean Le Mayeur de Merpes (1880-1958), a Belgian painter, lived in Sanur from 1932 - 1958. His house was transformed into a museum, Museum Le Mayeur, where about 80 of his most important paintings are exhibited.[2] Bali Orchid Garden, a park about 3 km north of Sanur is worth a visit as well.[3]

Another interesting sight can be visited in the south of Sanur in Jalan Danau Poso Street beside Pura Belangjong, a small Hindu temple. A stone column measuring 1.77 metres can be seen under a roof at the end of a small and short blind alley. This is the oldest object produced by men on Bali. The column bears inscriptions dating from the 9th century written in Sanskrit and in a very old form of Balinese.[4] Various objects made of stone possibly dating from the same period are exhibited as well.

Education

The Bali International School is located in Sanur.[5]

Rumah Kecil is a playgroup for children between 1–6 years old.[6]
