Villa Cemara is tucked between a five star hotel and an ancient temple, the 60-metre frontage of Villa Cemara edges the golden sands of Bali’s oldest beach resort located in Sanur.
Sanur is renowned for its bohemian artistic heritage and enduring appeal, it has long been regarded as a destination for the discerning world traveller.
Although Sanur has an abundance of restaurants and accommodation just a short walk from the villa, it has a relaxed, and quiet atmosphere. Being one of the oldest resort style areas in Bali it is a popular place for many European travellers and people looking for a sophisticated but authentic Bali experience.
Sun worshippers can settle into their lounges as the view from the villa includes fisherman in pandanus hats wading into the shallows with lines and nets, windsurfers skimming past and para-sailors glide overhead. A kilometre out, silver waves break over the reef that shelters Sanur from undertows and crashing surf.
Now and then, processions wind across the sands as local families and communities hold ceremonies at the water’s edge or at tiny temples shaded by sea almonds and coconut palms. After dark, the sound of gamelan practice mixes with western music from scattered café’s, candles glow on restaurant tables and the lamps of the night fishermen shine beneath the stars.
