Where to Stay in Bali, Indonesia

There’s nothing worse than lousy accommodation when you’re on a holiday. Especially the type of vacation where you just want to relax and spend time doing nothing in beautiful surrounds. There are great things to be said for budget lodgings if you plan is to pack your schedule with sightseeing and just need a bed for the night. We generally though like to take things a little slower these days and, here at The Yum List, we definitely want to be pampered. Thoroughly researched and with a good dose of luxury in mind, these are these places we recommend as:

The Best Places to Stay in Bali

(in no particular order)
Spa Village Resort Tembok Bali – this is the ultimate resort for unplugging, relaxation and getting back in tune with nature and yourself. Located a three hour drive from the airport, I imagine this quite village of Tembok is what first made Bali popular so many years ago.

Grand Nikko Bali – offers big resort facilities with private spa villa accommodation. Dual experiences in one property and the spectacular Nusa Dua beach.

Viceroy Bali, Ubud – absolutely gorgeous accommodation on the outskirts of Ubud. Your own private plunge pool looking over the valley is pure heaven.
