Which Villas to Stay in Bali?
From the pristine white sands adorning Jimbaran Bay to the lush rice paddies of Ubud, it’s little wonder Bali is affectionately referred to as the Island of Gods.
Here’s our favourite villas and hotels ideal for budget, luxury, and romance. Now all that’s left to organise is the packing!
I see you watching me, watching you…this is how you’ll feel once you’re floating in a rooftop pool, gazing over Bali’s vibrant streets. All of this and more is possible at The ONE Legian. Although only 15 minutes from vibrant Kuta, the ONE is certain to keep you so entertained you’ll probably never want to venture out of the front door.
With 299 rooms and a stellar mix of services and facilities, this is THE kind of place to let your hair down. If you’re celebrating a hens do, bucks party, or simply want to unleash your inner wild side, why not head to one of the Sky Pool Parties. These raucous soirees take place three times a week where you can make use of BBQ facilities, dance the night away to urban tunes from the resident DJ, and find love for a night.
If this all sounds a little much, head to The ONE Movie Night at Rooftop, which showcases box office hits four nights a week from 7pm -10pm. Recline on one of the day beds and munch into a hefty portion of free popcorn. Then retreat to your New Urban DESIGN concept room, which comes with a king-sized bed and luxury toiletries.
If you want to be in the thick of all the action, you can’t deny that Kuta is where it’s at. Buzzing with well-priced bars, souvenir shops, and thumping night clubs, Kuta is everything you imagined and more.
After your night of frivolity with the mates, roll back into bed at nearby Anemalou Resort & Beach Club. Luxurious in style, but super chilled in vibe, Anemalou boasts a mix of one- and two-bedroom villas.
If you’re wanting to escape the crowds for the day and recharge before night number two on the town, take a dip in your very own pool or simply lounge in your private gazebo. Rooms are tasteful in design, pairing splashes of contemporary lilac alongside more local touches.
Bali is a reliable destination for cheap, decent tucker, but if you’d rather cook up a storm at home, the villas also feature super well-equipped kitchens. Now all that’s left to organise is the 12-pack of Bintang beer and you’re sorted for the night!
For muscles that are just that touch too tired after a night of dancing, head to in-house Violette Spa. Various treatments are available which all draw natural plants, herbs, and botanical products to create a healing and peaceful experience from start to finish.
If choosing a hotel was a little like musical chairs, you would certainly hope the music stopped once you arrived at Poh Manis Lembongan. Situated on the Lembongan Island, just a short 30-minute ferry trip from mainland Bali, Poh Manis is the ideal solution for those seeking a touch of respite. Oh and did we forget to mention it’s pretty well-priced too?
Boutique in size, yet grand in style, you’re certain to get bang for your buck at Poh Manis. The seven air-conditioned bungalows feature four poster beds, high thatched ceilings, and glass sliding doors which open to stunning rainforest views. The furnished balconies mean your afternoon ritual of lounging with champagne is sorted.
