Where to Stay

  • Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Kerobokan and Canggu The areas behind Bali's fabled sweep of sand have every kind of accommodation imaginable and are in the heart of dining, nightlife and shopping.
  • West coast, Bukit Peninsula At sweet spots like Bingin, characterful guesthouses cling to the cliffs above famous surf breaks.
  • Nusa Dua Huge international resorts gated off from the rest of the island.
  • Sanur Modest, quiet and family-friendly; hotels on or near the beach.
  • Ubud The centre for Bali's homestays plus boutique accommodation at all budgets where calm, serenity and renewal are the bywords.
  • Amed Coast Small and often idiosyncratic guesthouses and hotels strung out in waterfront villages along a dry, sun-drenched coast.
  • Pemuteran Resorts from humble to luxe on or near the bay, may come with a sustainability credo.
