Mitra 10 is a large hardware outlet and they have two stores in Bali – one in Sanur on the Bypass and one in Denpasar.
They stock a large range of products that you would need for any DIY project. They have large displays of bathroom and kitchen tiles, but when I have inquired about buying 10 or 20 boxes they don’t have a lot of stock. The staff will go out the back and they usually come back saying “habis” (out of stock). It’s quite frustrating and I have found the staff less helpful than say ACE Hardware.
I think the prices however might be more competitive than ACE Hardware and Mitra 10 is better for contractors and the home handy man (or woman!).
I think regular builders in Bali will probably have their favorite hardware stores and some of the local Chinese retailers have fantastic stores jam packed with stock and the staff are generally more “switched on”. The problem is finding these stores if you are new to Bali. For convenience sake you can’t beat Mitra 10.
