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.

  • CREMATION IN BALI ( NGABEN )

      08 March 2018

    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.

  • SNORKLING AT SANUR BEACH

      03 March 2018

    Snorkeling in Sanur is a popular recreational activity, particularly at tropical resort locations. The primary appeal is the opportunity to observe underwater life in a natural setting without the complicated equipment and training required for scuba diving. It appeals to all ages because of how little effort there is, and without the exhaled bubbles of scuba-diving equipment. It is the basis of the two surface disciplines of the underwater sport of finswimming.

  • 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.
