Welcome to La taverna Suites

Welcome to La Taverna Suites. After more than 40 years in business, La Taverna hotel has become a suite only operation – same beach location that our guests have so appreciated in the past, same Bali style – only smaller, with more attention to detail and our newly introduced butler service.

One of Bali’s first hotels, built on one of Bali’s best beaches, this lagoon-circled, coral-surrounded hotel was once home to the rich and famous. The rooms are quaint and traditional with carved beds and are classic with old Bali charm. The hotel has a good restaurant with 24-hour room service and a pool to lounge at with massage facilities available. Shopping and many restaurants are near the hotel in the charming town of Sanur - the first resort town of Bali. But it is the perfect beach to attract guests to the island and hotel.

A historic beach resort where the magic spirit of the classical Bali lives on. For those of you in search of something different. At La Taverna Suites we have been looking after guests and travellers for over 40 years. We have been privileged to welcome guests from all walks of life - artists, holiday makers, royalty, scholars - who all come to us with something in common: the search for a more authentic Bali. The Suites layout was inspired by ancestral Balinese villages in the countryside, known as Kampung. So the rooms are loosely arranged around a central space (where village elders would have gathered but we play petanque here…) and are built in the traditional style - though we have enjoyed mixing it with touches from our European homeland, Italy. As in the Kampung we respect the rhythm and balance of nature, the Suites is nestled in lush tropical vegetation and our sandy pathways all lead to the golden sands of the Indian Ocean. We offer a tropical getaway for those interested in the charm and tranquility of an unspoiled Bali, with beautiful Ocean views and the chance to relax in an idyllic setting – all the while conveniently located at a mere 30 minutes from Bali Denpasar Airport. Here you can wake early to witness a legendary Sanur sunrise, the sky a beautiful fuchsia background to the mystical Mount Agung, one of Bali’s holiest spots. Spend the rest of the morning sun bathing by the sea or our outdoor pool, treat yourself to the restorative powers of a traditional Balinese massage and dining at our romantic beach side restaurant. Those in search of more activities and fun can explore the many attractions the vibrant fishing village of Sanur has to offer: from the nearby museum of the famed artist Le Mayeur, the Sindu Art Market and the many local boutiques, cafés, craft shops and restaurants. The white sandy beaches of Lembongan Islands are just a half- hour fast boat ride away from Sanur beach – for those in wishing to discover the attraction of the nearby islands.

Come and visit us and make this your home away from home.

Come and Visit, Bali is Safe...

    Balinese Ngaben Ceremony or Cremation Ceremony, is the ritual performed in Bali to send the deceased to the next life. The body of the deceased will be placed as if sleeping, and the family will continue to treat the deceased as sleeping. No tears are shed, because the deceased is only temporarily not present and will reincarnate or find his final rest in Moksha (freeing from the reincarnation and death cycle).

    The proper day of the Ngaben ceremony is always a matter of consulting a specialist on ceremony days. On the day of the ceremony, the body of the deceased is placed inside a coffin. This coffin is placed inside a sarcophagus resembling a buffalo (Lembu) or in a temple structure (Wadah) made of paper and wood. The buffalo or temple structure will be carried to the cremation site in a procession. The procession of Ngaben is not walking in a straight line. This is to confuse bad spirits and keep them away from the deceased.

    Easter is celebrated in several ways in northern Europe and the United States. Most of these celebrations have nothing to do with the Christian meaning of the holiday. These celebrations are related more to the pagan festivals of ancient Germany. Children are given baskets filled with candy. Eggs are decorated and hidden for children to find that the "Easter Bunny" supposedly laid. People wear new clothes and go to church. Greeting cards are exchanged. An Easter Egg Roll is held on the lawn of the White House on the day after Easter. Small leafless trees or branches are carried indoors and decorated with colored eggs, paper trims, and lights. Some shopping malls offer children a chance to visit with an adult costumed as the Easter Bunny. Forced tulipshyacinths and lilies are given as gifts. Week-long vacations are taken following Easter Day, giving families the chance to visit with distant relatives. In America, many families leave the cold of northern states to visit amusement parks or sunny beaches in the south. Spring break for American high school and college students usually occurs about Easter time.

  • LEMPAD THE MAESTRO ( 1862 - 1978 )

      13 February 2018

    I Gusti Nyoman Lempad (1862 –1978) was known as a Balinese stone sculptor and architect (Undagi in Balinese) who built the palaces and temples in Ubud and its neighboring villages. In his later years, he produced hundreds of linear drawings of Balinese mythology and folklore. Lempad of Bali, a short documentary film produced by John Darling and Lorne Blair, tells the story of Lempad at the end of his life and his cremation ceremony.

    Lempad's exact birth date, as many Balinese of his time, is unknown. But he was married when Krakatoa erupted in 1883. He died on April 25, 1978 at his home in Ubud, Bali. He gathered his family and asked them to bathe him and then died. The Balinese believed that he chose the time of his death at the day that considered most holy.

    Although he maintained a close friendship with foreign artists, including Rudolf Bonnet and Walter Spies, Lempad never compromised his distinctive identity as a Balinese artist, and one with a broad range of talents in many media; painting, sculpture and architecture.

  • Day Of Silence ( Nyepi ), Bali March 17 - 18, 2018

      08 February 2018

    Nyepi Day in Bali is a New Year celebration unlike anywhere else on the planet. Bali celebrates the Saka New Year as the Bali Day of Silence. It's ultimately the quietest day of the year, when all of the island's inhabitants abide by a set of local rules. These bring all routine activities to a complete halt. Roads all over Bali are void of any traffic and nobody steps outside of their home premises. Most Balinese and visitors regard Nyepi as a much-anticipated occasion. Some expats and those coming from neighbouring islands prefer escaping Bali for the day rather, due to restrictions that surround the observance. Some others check coinciding dates ahead before their Bali trip, avoiding it altogether. Anyhow, Nyepi is worth experiencing at least once in a lifetime. Especially, since the preceding and following days offer rare highlights to behold!
