In a nutshell
A secret beach hideaway in Bali for only those in the know.
Hidden at the end of a street in one of the most bustling areas of Bali, lies a sanctuary offering the most genuine example of the Island’s culture and hospitality. The Sandi Phala is a rare find amongst the crowds of Tuban and neighbouring Kuta, yet when staying there, it’s as if you are alone in a lost paradise.
With only 11 suites, the feeling of living in a large Balinese home comes more to mind, rather than a hotel room. All of which are generously sized to offer a luxurious, yet intimate living space, designed individually to reflect the rich cultures and traditions of West Java and Bali.
One of most notable attributes of this hotel is its pristinely kept private beach, which again is generous in size for such a small hotel. To have a stretch of golden beach all for you is hardly heard of these days. Combined also with a ambience of spiritual tranquility, The Sandi Phala is like you’re in Ubud, but on the beach.
When comes the time to eat, The Sandi Phala al fresco restaurant Ma Joly offers the perfect setting to sample the un-complicated, yet flavoursome dishes inspired by Executive Chef Jay’s cuisine, while watching the burning red sunset slip away into the night. Now who would have thought you could get all of these luxurious experiences in Tuban?
“The Sandi Phala feels like you’re Ubud, but on the beach”
From the beginning
The Sandi Phala first opened its doors in 2003 in in Tuban, an area in Bali that was one of the first to be developed for tourism. Some say it has now been overdeveloped and destroyed. Yet with just a little patience and awareness of the Island’s history and background, one can easily walk through the veneer of commercialism, and enjoy the intricacies of Tuban’s bustling street life, whilst also combining tranquility and peace-of-mind in your hide-away beach retreat.
Something else you didn’t know
The name Sandi Phala has a strong Hindu spiritual meaning, signifying a blessing coming from the eight wind directions. It also has one of the best sunset locations if you looking to have a faraway destination wedding.
