Just over a year old, Andaz Bali is the first Andaz resort in Asia. It is located in the heart of Sanur, a quaint seaside village known for its old world charm, picturesque beaches and spectacular sunrises. The concept of the resort reflects the locations and draws inspiration from the surrounding villages, from its buildings nestled in lush vegetation to the use of distinctive red brick, a traditional building material in Sanur. Of the 149 Balinese-style rooms available, there are 18 Garden Villas and four Beach Villas arranged in a series of courtyards. Each room has a private balcony overlooking the garden, ocean or lagoon.
