Why do you live in Sanur and work from Bali?

We asked a few Livit Hub members about their remote work experience and why do they live in Sanur and work from Bali and live in Sanur. Their stories are different, but the similarity is about the people of this town and the amiable atmosphere here. Here are more tips from our long-term members on specific spots to visit in Sanur.

Sanur Beach Walk

Silvia

Silvia

Silvia is Indonesian and Chinese by descent. She is a geek girl who rocks in illustration and design for a scaleup, working from one of the office spaces available at Livit Hub Bali. Silvia’s best decision was to move to Sanur and work from Bali. The beautiful beaches, great food, and friendly people make this an ideal place to live and work from Sanur. 

Silvia’s favorite places in Sanur combine beautiful visual aesthetics and appealing decor with the best value for money! 

She highly recommends these places to anyone looking for the best of both worlds:

Pantai Sindhu

Pantai Sindhu

This beach is her favorite because of the golden sand and the beautifully decorated cafes and hotels along the promenade. She particularly enjoys taking long walks through the alleys in the early morning or around 3 pm, when the sun creates a shadow effect, resulting in epic scenic views.

KOOD

KOOD Restaurant

This is a local plant-based canteen run by the youth in the local area. They serve heavenly bread, ice cream, and a wide range of plant-based dishes. 

She enjoys their cashew milk varieties and appreciates their sustainable manufacturing practice. When you return the bottles, they’ll reimburse you for the cost of each bottle.

Nata Oysters Seafood

Nata Oysters & Seafood

Silvia is in love with this new favorite spot. She appreciates that she can quickly get fresh, delicious oysters at a fair price nearby. 

Baked garlic butter oysters are her personal favorite, and they also have mussels on the menu, which is her second choice.

Alantara Sanur

Alantara Sanur

Staycationing here is one of her favorite pastimes. The hotel room concept is modern Balinese-style, and she finds their design to be very classy and supportive of local cultural authenticity.

Even during the pandemic, the rooms were kept immaculately clean. The staff is pleasant, and the service is excellent.

Chantara Wellness and Spa

Chantara Wellness and Spa

This is Silvia’s preferred massage parlor. Compared to other Sanur spas, they provide a one-of-a-kind package and room ambiance. The massage treatment is ideal for her, and she always feels rejuvenated after her visit.

Whether you’re looking for a laid-back place to relax with friends, somewhere to get some work done, or a place to watch the sunset, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for in this charming town. 

After a long day of work, there’s nothing better than grabbing a bite and a drink at one of Sanur’s many fabulous restaurants and bars. 

So next time you’re in Sanur, be sure to check out some of these great spots!
