Returning for its 8th edition this year, the Sanur Village Festival 2013 will again light up the coast of Sanur Beach with all kinds of fascinating fiestas from 24th to 28th September 2013 to be held at the Maisonette area, Ina Grand Bali Beach Hotel.
“ The New Spirit of Heritage” has been chosen as this year’s tagline reflecting a revitalized spirit to conserve both natural and cultural wonders of the island of Bali. The theme of this year’s Sanur Village Festival (SVF) will adopt Balinese own philoshopy of “Segara Giri”. Segara Giri itself is believed to be based on a certain geographical place where the mountain directly faces the sea, thus encompassing the two different characteristics in unison. Segara Giri also represents a sense of harmony between humans, nature and all other matters that are interwoven.
Celebrating Balinese contemporary and traditional culture, during the festival Sanur’s streets will host colorful floats and “thousands” of parade participants in a display of music, light and colors that will wow audiences with a showstopper of a parade. Among the most anticipated programs of the Event are: a food festival, water sports, cooking demonstrations, environmental conservation initiatives, exhibitions, and an entire range of entertainment offerings. There will also be Sanur Golf Tournament, Environmental Care program, Under Water Festival, Sanur Kite Festival, Sports Competition, Fun Beach Games, Fishing contest, Sanur Creative Expo, and many others.
Located just 25 minutes from the international airport, 30 minutes from the Kuta area, and 15 minutes from downtown Denpasar, Sanur is renowned as Bali's first beach resort and is actually where the early tourism industry grew on Bali. Sanur is also the launching pad for visitors who want to dive and explore the splendors of the nearby island of Nusa Lembongan. As a place where tourism first flourished in Bali, Sanur has some of Balis’ historic hotels. Built in 1965, the Inna Grand Bali itself, formerly called Bali Beach Hotel, was the first five star and the only high rise hotel in Bali. After its construction a new law came into force where in Bali no hotel may be built higher than a coconut tree.
