Bali, the Island of the Gods, beautiful sunset and green rice paddies. It’s a culturally rich and spiritual island full of friendly locals. With so many incredible possibilities to choose from, deciding where to stay in Bali is not an easy task.
Bali has some of the most unique hotels in the world. There is a creativity that the Balinese have that sets them apart from the rest. It’s one of the things that I like most about holidaying there so whenever I’m booking my Bali accommodation, I always look for the smaller, more unusual places.
However, I have added all types of lodgings here because Bali has some incredibly opulent resorts not to be missed.
From cheap Bali villas to luxury hotels, Bali has something for every budget and lifestyle. Read on and find out the best places to stay in Bali.
WHERE TO STAY:
This hotel is located in the centre of Seminyak near popular cafés and restaurants. It’s only a 5 minute walk to the popular Beach Club Potato Head and the public beach Petitenget. The biggest strength of the Montigo Resort is its staff. They are very professional, well trained and helpful. We were really spoiled in these 3 nights. The TIIGO Restaurant is also worth mentioning, as the food is really prepared on a very good level. To keep it short, we can definitely recommend this hotel. A big thank you goes to Cory for the organization and the handling of various things.
The Rama Petitenget stands out above all due to its location. Situated near the famous Café Kind Community it is a good starting point to explore Seminyak. Our room was equipped with many conveniences such as a washing machine and an iron. Our small villa also had its own seat which we appreciated very much. The interior of the hotel resembles a small oasis. Surrounded by palm trees, you quickly get to feel the holiday feeling. The absolute highlight of this hotel is the breakfast. Guests of the Rama Petinteget are allowed to have a free breakfast at the opposite restaurant named Honeybeens. It was delicious.
WHERE TO STAY:
Our next trip took us to the small town of Ubud, more precisely to the Udaya Resort. The hotel is about 2.5km from the center. This was no problem for us, as the hotel provided an hourly shuttle service. The rooms are very generously furnished (coffee machine, tea maker) and some rooms have a private pool. The hotel itself has a very large pool, which is very suitable for swimming. Breakfast is à la carte and of excellent quality and quantity. On request you can have the Floating Breakfast served in your room, which is a unique experience and I can only recommend it to you. Very positive to mention is the Kaveri Spa. So relaxing and wonderfully surrounded by flowers. The staff is very friendly and cordial. I would definitely recommend it if you want to relax after a long day of activities in Bali.
WHERE TO STAY:
Hotel Mulia belongs to the higher price category in Nusa Dua. It is not without reason that Mulia was chosen in 2014 as the best Beach Hotel in the world (according to Condé Nast Traveler USA Edition). The hotel has over 500 rooms, but we never had the impression that there was a large mass of people in the hotel. We had a room with pool and sea view, which was really breathtaking. The whole staff looked very professional and trained. The buffet food was really unique and of high quality. If you want to get some exercise during the holidays, you can visit the spacious fitness studio. There is a very large selection of fitness equipment as well as group fitness hours. The hotel is especially suitable for couples and families.
If you are looking for luxury and relaxation in Nusa Dua, then the Royal Santrian is the right place for you. With only 20 private villas with private pool, this hotel belongs to the elite class in Nusa Dua. The hotel is literally situated by the sea. Just a few meters separate the resort from the sea. The holiday feeling will not be missed out here in any case. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be served either in the own villa or directly at the beach. Near the hotel there is a small shopping mall called The Bali Collection. Various restaurants and small shops can be found there. This resort is highly recommended. You feel like at home.
