  1. On my last visit to avail I stayed in the Kamuela Villas and can confirm it is gorgeous, the glass bedroom suspended above the private pool and our little posse of monkeys visiting on a daily basis was sublime

  2. Hi Alice,

    Good to see the Bintang Brigade is in effect ;)

    We’ve enjoyed stays in Sanur, Legian, Lodtunduh, Klebang Moding, Keroutan, Jimbaran twice, and I’m forgetting a trip or 2.

    Been to Bali a few times.

    Love the round up. Especially the temple by the lake photo, which was a beautiful place to visit.

    Signing off from sunny NJ.


  3. So many gorgeous vistas! The cliffs are spectacular and I would love to visit some of those temples. I definitely need to expand my travel wish list to include Bali.

  4. What a very informative post. I’ve never been to Bali and I’ve always wanted to visit, now I can truly have choices on where I would want to stay with your post. Thank you.

  5. Bali is magical and I think that choosing just one hotel would be impossible when all of them have great views and special ad libs available. What would you recommend for me?

    • Readers are confirming the recommendations in the comments so that’s a good start to solidify what you want to go with. I researched all the hotels I could and picked the ones with the best price and review ratings so depending on what budget you have, do take a look at what is suggested and see what you think. Happy Hotel hunting Ana!

  6. Wow, Alice – seriously detailed write up! I’m just here updating my 2016 Bali guide too.

    One thing I would say is that people think Nusa Dua is a all a gated development, when actually its a pretty local area (I used to live in a small village called Swawangan there which was just locals) and it is actually the BTDC (Bali tourist development complex) area in Nusa Dua that is the gated part. I’d like to recommend a couple of more budget friendly options there incase anyone is looking, as the Mulia is billed as 7* and usually their prices are way higher than the starting rate. All of these I have got for the $40/50 dollar mark before:
    Grand Whizz in the BTDC (Next to the Sofitel has insane deals usually) as well as the Swisbel Sawanag and Villa Anging which are up in the village.

    Are you heading over here soon? Be great to meet up if you are?

    • Hey Dan! Thanks for the extra info! Now I’ve done all this research, I’m desperate to get there! I’m currently finishing my Jiu Jitsu course in China here then I’m off to conquer the Mongol Rally! After that, a break in Bali might just be the ticket!

  7. Wow! This is such an amazing and thorough overview. I clicked over to check out some of the accommodations, and I’m impressed by the value offered (and the beauty of the places!). Thank you for this great post!

  8. We have a list of places we want to travel and I have no idea why Bali wasn’t on out list! It is now and I am saving this for future references.

  9. Bali has been on my to do list for ever! I usually have a couple of places I want to see but had never looked further into the country to see what else I could do- probably why I’ve yet to book it! This is such ann informative post on the places to visit and the reasons. Thanks x

    • Believe me, now I’ve done all of this research, I’m incredibly excited to put Bali firmly on my travel plans and get my ass over there! I’m currently studying an intensive Jiu Jitsu course in Dali, China. After this, I’m gonna need a cocktail and a massage haha.

  10. Good job on such an informative post. Been thinking of where to go for my birthday this year and Bali is one of the choices. I now know which post to turn to when it comes to accommodation planning. Now the only question is where do I want to stay. Haha

  11. This is fantastic, thanks Alice! We’re in Australia permanently now so have started looking at destinations around us that would be cheap enough to get to for our next vacation. Bali is on the list, so this helps us hugely :)

  12. Bali is one of those place that once you visit, you would definitely want to experience living there for a couple of months. I would love to that one day. I can’t wait to take a side trip to Kintamani when I get back! Heard the coffee is great there, too! Thank you for this comprehensive look on Bali, Alice! More power to you and enjoy!

  13. Great job covering all the different areas of Bali in this guide. We adore Bali as it’s constantly growing and improving with many new restaurants, bars, hotels, and villas opening every month. And there’s something for everyone whether you’re on a budget or looking for something luxury.
