Wondering where to stay in Bali? I recently spent a week in the adorable little town of Sanur, where I booked an adorable airbnb. Sanur is a great spot for digital nomads, vacationers, or anyone looking for a place to spend some time relaxing in Bali.
If you know me, you know that I LOVE driving motorbikes. This little place that I booked was remote enough to warrant a necessary motorbike rental for the week. I rented one from my airbnb host for 50,000 Indonesian rupiah per day, which is $5 AUD or $3.50 USD per day.
I spent the week driving the motorbike and discovering new restaurants.
My favorite vegan-friendly restaurants in Sanur are:
Malaika Secret Moksha
I ate here nearly every day. The owner is an incredible gourmet chef. They have a vegan menu, which is only one page out of the maybe 10-page menu, but everything I tried on the veg menu was amazing. Definitely go for breakfast and get the coconut granola, and also you must try the Balinese coffee.
I am not sure if this one counts, since I actually drove about half an hour away (all the way to Seminyak) to try this place out. I’ve been following them on Instagram for a year now and was so excited to have my very own Nalu bowl, I went there the first day I was in Bali. It cost about $7 USD; totally worth it. All of their bowls look absolutely incredible, and it’s a really cute place to hang out. They have locations all over Bali and I highly recommend trying them out at least once!
Good for smoothies and raw foods, also THEY HAVE COLD BREW COFFEE. Heads up, they don’t have wifi at their Sanur location. They are a chain and have other locations throughout Bali.
Great for beach vibes. Located right along the beach, this is a fab place to watch the sunset with a coconut or a raw dessert. They have loads of vegan options but also cater to omnivores. It’s not cheap, but the quality is good.
This place was hidden along the main road. This is where I found vegan versions of local Balinese food, and tried the national dish, nasi goreng. It was good, but a little oily for my taste 🙂
If you are in Sanur and looking to get your Facetime on, the best wifi I found was located at this adorable little coffee shop that was hidden down a little alley – it was called Dusk Blue.
I definitely recommend Sanur for part of your stay in Bali, but there are so many great places to stay in Bali that I’d recommend going to a few if you can!
how cute are the local kids?!
