Sanur, Bali

Tandjung Sari - Resorts in Bali - Dive Discovery Indonesia

Tandjung Sari is an ageless beauty. Initiated in the 1960’s, the Dutch-Indonesian artist-entrepreneur Wija Wawo-Runtu bought a piece of land on Sanur beach in Bali and built a little house with his wife. This family home on the beach has evolved into Bali’s original boutique resort sought after by the rich and famous, who were charmed by its blend of simplicity and sophistication – its rustic local architecture adorned with antiques; its luxuriant beach side tropical gardens and superb Indonesian cuisine; and above all, the easy-going hospitality of the Wawo-Runtus, who were themselves the hub of an international network of friends, and entertain with a great flair.

The Tandjung Sari remains a treasure today, still run by the Wawo-Runtu family, discreet and elegantly modest.


Two-Storey Bungalow - Tandjung Sari - Resorts in Bali

Tandjung Sari is a hand-made resort. The resort’s “rooms” are stand-alone cottages – always referred to as bungalows – set in walled gardens. The bungalows are placed very discretely around the premises, were beautifully designed largely through a hand-sketch of the founder, Wija Wawo-Runtu and organically constructed by a team of local craftsmen. The hand-made character of the hotel permeates not only its architecture but also the interiors and accessories.
