Sanur is located in the south-east of Bali and is famous for its miles and miles of superb sandy beaches. Most people come here to relax in the sun and enjoy the wonderful surroundings. The beach is child-friendly, as the waters it borders are calm. It is also the perfect place to try a range of exciting water sports activities. If you would like to go surfing or kitesurfing, it is best to head off to Kuta beach, approximately 30 minutes by car from Sanur.

An excellent path has been laid out alongside the water from Jalan Mertasari in the south of Sanur to the main beach of Jalan Hangtuah in the north – ideal for a bike ride or a gentle stroll. Many of the hotels here have restaurants or bars facing the path, so you have plenty of opportunities to take a break, sit down and enjoy a drink or a meal along the way.

The main street in town is lined with all kinds of restaurants, bars and boutiques selling beautiful souvenirs and more.

Sanur is a popular holiday destination – and rightly so, because the town has succeeded in retaining its charming, relaxed ambience.

If you wish to round off your holiday with a stay on a perfect paradise island may we recommend a trip to Gili Trawangan? Gili Trawangan is one of the three Gili islands – and the most popular. There are no cars on the island, so getting about is on two feet, two wheels or perhaps a horse-drawn carriage. During the day, the atmosphere on the island is relaxed, with things livening up in the evening at the numerous small restaurants and bars around the island. The days are spent on the long, white beaches or in the clear water. Gili has the reputation of being one of the best places to dive in Indonesia.

Note that on this extension, you will spend 3 nights at Gili Trawangan and 1 night in Sanur.

5 days/4 nights | Discover the Komodo Islands and western Flores
5 days/4 nights | Discover the Komodo Islands and western Flores

Price:
Per person in a double room: + £760
Single room surcharge (when two or more travelers): + £145
Single supplement (when single traveler): + £420

The Komodo Islands are home to the great Komodo dragons, which are named after islands. The Komodo is the largest living species of lizard in the world. It can grow up to three metres long and weigh up to 165 kg. Despite its huge size, it can move at speeds of up to 20 km/h – and it is carnivorous with an aggressive and pretty brutal hunting technique. And yet a visit to the monitor lizards is on the wish list of many travellers. It’s not every day you get see the world’s largest lizard, which has survived here on the islands for some 10 million years! Besides the Komodo dragons, you can also see buffalo, wild boar, wild deer, macaques, parrots and a landscape that is both scenic and rugged. The water is crystal clear; the seas full of brightly coloured fish and corals. Designated as a national park, the islands are on UNESCO’s list of natural heritage sites.

The trip here is a combination of a somewhat primitive mini cruise to Rinca Island and Komodo, to name but two, and a stay at a good 4-star hotel with a visit to the western part of the island of Flores.

Note that on this extension, you will spend 1 night on a boat, 2 nights at Flores and 1 night in Sanur.

This tour is not permitted for children under 12-years old.

Overnight stay The cabin on the boat at the Komodo Islands / The Jayakarta Suites / Parigata Resorts and Spa
