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.

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.
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.
If you love cliff jumping and are on Nusa Lembongan or heading to Lembongan this is the blog post you are looking for. The Blue Lagoon cliff jump in Nusa Ceningan is one of the most awesome experiences I have had since I began traveling. The Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon is a rocky cove of the brightest blue water I’ve laid my eyes on.
I wrote a guide for all you cliff jumpers: 10 Best Cliff Jumping Spots in Bali
Getting to Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon
Two mates and I began the day on Lembongan. By the time you are reading this the new bridge between Lembongan and Ceningan will be up and running. We had to cross the ocean by boat but a simple moped cross will do the job. Because of the cost of a moped on Ceningan at the time was pretty expensive we walked to Blue Lagoon but with a moped, the journey will take you no more than 5-10 minutes.
Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon
Visiting in low season and the lack of a bridge definitely played a part in how few people we saw on Ceningan. However, I have since visited Blue Lagoon again and there was no-one at the cliff jump again. Lots of tourists take photos of the lagoon from the edge of the cliffs in the parking lot. If you move away from the parking lot you will avoid any crowd whatsoever.
Once you arrive at the Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon, take a few moments to be amazed by the beautiful color of the water and this amazing little cove.
Once your admiration of nature is over, walk along the coast towards the left side of the bay. You will find a small hut with crazy art all over it. Along with the hipster hut, you will come across the remains of what appears to be an old cafe or bar. I have heard it may have closed due to the dangers of this spot in bad weather. As always be careful, know your limits and stay safe.
Cliff Jumping at Nusa Ceningan Blue Lagoon
We threw our bags down in the hut and settled in for what would end up being four hours of crazy fun at my new favorite cliff jumping spot. There are relatively safe jumps from heights of 4m, 6m, 8m and 13.5m.
The water was very deep and we didn’t could see the bottom was way too far to worry about touching it. To get out of the water once you are in you will swim to your right back towards the coast and clamber up the cliffs when you find a gap in the waves. If the swell looks too big maybe save the jump for another day as you don’t want to get stuck unable to get out. The day we went had some decent waves but none to cause too much trouble. We all finished the day without a single scrape, just a big smile plastered on our faces.
The second time I visited the Blue Lagoon on Nusa Ceningan the tide was high and the waves were big. We didn’t jump because it looked like you would get swept as you tried to get out. Make sure you assess the conditions thoroughly before jumping here as getting out can be dangerous.
I built my way up from the 8m backflip to the 13m normal jump. By the end of the day, I threw down the gauntlet to myself and backflipped from 13m, the highest I had ever done.
All of my best memories throughout my travels involve going beyond my comfort zone. I know it sounds cliche but it’s true. I won’t ever forget this day purely because I went for it, even though every bone in my body said not to.
While we chilled up in the abandoned cafe in between jumps, the sun absolutely baked us. Don’t expect any service here or any signs of life at all. Two people came past throughout the entire time we were there and other than that the only other visitors we had were a pod of dolphins.
However, just next door is the Driftwood Bar, where you can chill in an infinity pool, grab a drink and a snack and relax after your cliff jumping session.
If you are looking for a cliff jump that has better access, a ladder to get out and beers at the ready, Mahana Point Cliff Jump is just around the corner. A small bar sits on the point overlooking the surf break and has a 10m and 5m platform to jump off. However, you have to pay per jump. It’s 25000 rupiah for the 5m jump and 50,000 rupiah for the 10m jump. That’s pretty steep for one jump but worth it if you want to cliff jump and have a safe exit out of the water. We watched the sunset here and did one more obligatory jump. What a freaking day!
