About Bali

If you've been convinced by all the people telling you: 'Everyone should visit Bali ONCE in their lives', go straight to our guru's list of hotel recommendations. If you're still not sure, here are some good reasons to visit and the best places to stay in Bali to enjoy them.

Beautiful! Warm! Friendly! These are the three things people gush about Bali.

Bali's beauty and climate has attracted some of the world's most luxurious hotel chains and with them you'll find sophisticated restaurants and bars. All with friendly, friendly service.

Some of our Bali Collections:

Where to Stay:

  • Ubud is probably one of the best places to stay in Bali if you're interested in experiencing the colour of her culture. This is museum and gallery central and a short driving distance from some of the most beautiful of the island's 20,000 temples. This used to be where the backpackers and artists came, but now there are plenty of luxurious options for food, drink and sleep as well. This is also one of the top destinations on the island to see traditional performances - the best of which are held in the old royal residence.

What Not to Miss

  • The landscape: the temperate climate has a gentle humidity to it and everything is lush and green, fuelled by the rich volcanic soil. Rice paddies cut into the jungle give the views a quiet order. Mountains loom and beaches invite - from the white sand of the Bukit Peninsula to the yellow of busy Kuta and the wild, dark sand beaches to the east.
  • The traditions: You'll often come across flower petal offerings or the music and dance of a traditional ceremony. Sometimes it feels like there's a temple on every corner and the smell of incense lingers. Traditional life retains its own strong colours, tastes and celebrations. Religious ceremonies hold up traffic whenever they need to. It may well be that the best food you eat on the island is bought in the market.
  • Bali is also famous for surfing, diving and beautiful beaches. So whatever you're into there's something for everyone to experience.

With so much to see and a great climate Bali is very popular. To be sure of your room in one of the best places to stay in Bali do plan and book well ahead.

The Best Places to Stay in Bali

For a beachfront resort

  • The Oberoi is Bali's "Grand Dame" of the beach resort. As you'd expect here, you'll find excellent service, fabulous food and direct access to Seminyak Beach.
  • Puri Ganesha offers the perfect place to relax. This Bohemian property enjoys a secret hideaway location and boasts some of the best food on the island.
  • Jimbaran Puri is located right on Jimbaran Bay. The luxury resort has stunning sea views and accommodation is in charming cottages and villas dotted around the grounds.
  • Alilia Villas Soori enjoys an isolated position away from the crowds and right on a velvety black beach. Interiors are super slick - it truly is a dream spot for the design conscious!

  • If you've come to relax then one of the best places to stay in Bali is Uma Ubud. Amongst the beautiful, tropical gardens you'll find plenty of luxury and elegance with thoughtful touches - yoga mats in all 29 spacious rooms, for example. They do daily yoga classes and guided walks though the mist of the rice paddies.
  • If you’re here to relax then Desa Seni, the yoga and wellness retreat might serve you well. There are 12 rooms set amongst beautiful gardens, plus an organic restaurant and free daily yoga classes.
  • Alila Manggis is another very tranquil offering, this time a larger resort, but there’s a great yoga pavilion, a spa, tai chi classes and you’re surrounded by great cycling trails.

For Romance

  • Shambhala is ideal if you're looking for some privacy. Its 30 suites are in nine individually designed villas - each with their own pool and other facilities.

  • The Bale is a five star villa resort with 29 villas complete with private pools and walled gardens. The decor is minimalist. As well as your own villa there’s a library, spa, sauna, gym and complimentary bike hire.
  • The Alila Villas Uluwatu ’s clifftop position makes it different from other Balinese resorts. Firstly the views are something else, but the design is locally sourced and sustainable too. There are 61 rooms and suites, some with private pool, and some with bathrooms that have breathtaking views. There’s a seafood restaurant and an Indonesian restaurant.

For Ubud and traditional Bali

  • If you want a taste of traditional Balinese life try Bambu Indah. The accommodation is in traditional Javanese, thatched roofed homes, which have open air bathrooms and large verandahs. You're right in amongst the rice fields, so you'll hear the chattering of animals at dusk and dawn.
  • Uma Ubud is a sophisticated option with just twenty nine spacious rooms and suites. Set amid tropical hillside gardens, you can stroll into Ubud in twenty minutes.
  • Set amongst the terraces of the Ayung River Gorge, the Ubud Hanging Gardens is a light, airy traditional-style property with 38 rooms complete with muslim-draped four-poster beds and private plunge pools. The spa is great, as is the restaurant.
  • The Four Seasons Sayan is a tranquil hideaway set amongst lush, tropical gardens with 60 luxurious rooms and suites, each with their own lovely, secluded terrace. The spa is bliss and there’s a choice of Indonesian or international cuisine.

For Families

  • The Santai is a great pick for families. Its eleven villas offer spacious accommodation and each comes with private pool. There's a raft of kid's activities including cookery classes, face painting, coconut weaving, plus great restaurant and in-room spa treatments for the grown ups!
  • The Amala Estate also offers luxurious villa accommodation that's ideal for families. Beautiful, contemporary interiors feature plenty of stone and wood, and each villa comes with a huge private pool. Nicely secluded yet just a 10 minute stroll from the buzz of Seminyak when you want it.
  • Bisma Eight is a tranquil property set in the jungle. There are 38 rooms with an industrial bent, and Japanese style glass doors leading onto secluded terraces. Plus a great restaurant.

  • Katamama is a chic property with 58 enormous rooms and suites. The decor is contemporary and the vibe is beach-y, with modern art and exposed brickwork. The bar is cool and the views are great.

For A Beach Break

  • The Tugu offers a collection of colonial style pavilions right on the beach. Inside there are four-poster beds and Balinese antiques, some even have their own private pools. There are just 21 rooms but a choice of five restaurants plus a bar.
  • Puri Ganesha boasts that its Bali’s most secret beachfront hideaway. With just four villas set in their own private gardens, each villa with its own staff. The food is Balinese and excellent and the experience is peaceful and private - perfect for both families or couples.

For Great Value

  • If you're looking for something a bit lively, with a young hip vibe, that's kind on your wallet, we'd recommend the IZE Seminyak. Cool modern interiors are accompanied by a stunning rooftop pool, plus bar and restaurant. And you're a stone's throw from Seminyak's best haunts.

For an Apartment or Villa

  • If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner booking.com.

Travel Information

  • Most visitors arrive via Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport - which is also sometimes called Bali International or Denpasar International, but its not in Denpasar, it’s in Tuban, which is about 30minutes from Denpasar. This is a major hub for Australia and South East Asia, but if you’re coming from Europe or the US you might have to travel vial Jakarta Airport. Some hotels and resorts will arrange you an airport transfer, but there are plenty of taxis, arranged and pre-paid at a ticket booth just before the duty free area.
  • If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
  • Bali is just shy of the equator so you can expect it to be tropically warm and humid year round - through there’s definitely a wet and a dry season! The most popular time to visit Bali is during July and August and over the Christmas period, but if you’re not limited by school holidays then you’ll find good weather and good hotel deals between April and June and September, when it’s still dry but not so busy.
