Our Favourite Hotels in Bali
There are so many reasons why you may choose to visit Bali, our recent blog post outlines a few of them, but once you get there where should you actually stay? There are plenty of incredible hotels in Bali that are sure to make your experience of visiting this beautiful island even more special, and we've narrowed down a list of just 5 of our favourtie hotels that promise a truly luxurious and unforgettable stay in Bali. Whether you're looking to immerse yourself in nature in one of the abundant forests, or else spend some time reclining on the beach, this list will have you covered.
COMO Shambhala Estate
First on our list has to be COMO Shambhala Estate, a serene haven situated amongst lush emerald forests in Ubud. For those who want to get lost in nature, this resort is perfect, allowing you to feel as though you were miles away from everything else. What is perhaps most impressive about this resort however has to be its spa which offers excellent pampering sessions, as well as more serious wellness retreats for those who are interested (visit our sister site Healing Holidays for more information). This really is a place you can escape from it all, and proves you don’t have to head to the beach to enjoy the ultimate relaxing holiday.
Alila Villas Uluwatu
The spectacular location and design of Alila Villas Uluwatu are what make it really stand out. Located on a cliff 50 metres above the sea, every single one of the villas enjoys stunning panoramic sea views that will simply take your breath away. Each villa has been finished to an incredibly high standard and all come with private pools, making them ideal for those who want some privacy and seclusion. We recommend getting up early at least once during your stay to admire the phenomenal sunrise you’ll get to witness.
For those keen to spend some time relaxing on the beautiful beaches that Bali is so famous for a stay at The Mulia should be on the cards. This lavish resort has everything that you could possibly need for the most indulged stay and makes for the perfect way to round off a trip spent exploring other parts of Bali. The soft sand and warm water found mere moments from the resort are so inviting and you’ll feel spoiled for choice between lounging on the beach, relaxing poolside, or taking advantage of the many other fantastic facilities on offer at the resort.
Four Seasons Bali at Sayan
Four Seasons resorts are always impressive and Four Seasons Bali at Sayan is no exception to the rule. Set in Bali’s highlands the setting of this resort is picture-perfect, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the rushing Ayung River, verdant forests, functioning rice paddies, and much more that make this resort a natural paradise. The suites and villas themselves are incredibly luxurious, and with a spa and fantastic dining options thrown into the mix you are going to wish you could stay forever.
Hotel Tugu Bali
We love Hotel Tugu Bali for its beautiful design which was the vision of Anhar Setjadibrata. You won’t be able to stop yourself from marvelling at the Indonesian artwork, artefacts and antiques that adorn this hotel and really help you get a feel for Bali’s rich culture and history. When not simply admiring the beauty of this resort, try out the many dining options that will tantalise your taste buds, as well as sign up for the Balinese dance classes and other activities offered by the hotel that help you really connect to your destination. Oh, and if all of this wasn’t enough, you’re also close to a stunning beach too.
