Sanur Village Festival is a community event established by the Sanur Development Foundation (YPS), which combines large-scale activities involving food festivals, creative economic exhibitions, a series of contests and competitions, arts and cultural attractions, music, and various environmentally friendly activities.
Throughout its journey, SVF continued to display cultural diversity in its programs with Art and Culture Ambassadors from all over the Indonesian archipelago, showing that Sanur has an inclusive and open community for all. This fact is confirmed by the support of the international community that comes and visits every year.
Located only 25 minutes from Bali’s international airport, 30 minutes from the Kuta beach area, and 15 minutes from downtown Denpasar, Sanur is famous as Bali’s first beach resort and, in fact, is a destination where the initial Indonesian tourism industry began in Bali. Sanur is also a launching pad for visitors who want to dive and explore the beauty of the nearby island of Nusa Lembongan.
As a resort where tourism was first developed in Bali, Sanur has several historic Balis hotels. Built in 1965, Inna Grand Bali itself, formerly called the Bali Beach Hotel, is the first five-star and only high-rise hotel in Bali. After its construction, a new law came into force where in Bali no hotel was built higher than a coconut tree.
