The 20 best hotels in Bali
Ready to discover the most beautiful hotels in Bali? Let’s start!
1. The Edge Bali, amazing 5 star hotel in Bali
This 5-star hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in Bali. It is located on the cliffs of the southern part of Uluwatu, thanks to which you can see impressive views of the Indian Ocean. It has villas for 2 to 10 people with a private pool. Within the facilities you can enjoy bars, restaurants, gym, spa, cinema, bowling alley, tennis court, etc.
The most spectacular thing about this hotel is the oneeighty° pool bar. Part of this pool is suspended over the edge of the cliff. In addition, it has a glass bottom, so you can see what is under your feet.
2. Camaya, one of the best hotels in Bali
This is one of the best villas in Bali, one of those where you want to stay and live. I have also had the pleasure of staying here and it was a dream as the bamboo houses overlooking the rice fields are truly gorgeous. Although the most popular thing about Camaya is the net that hangs from the outside of the upper floor, where you can lie down and relax, read a book or watch the sunset. I advise you to look at photos on Instagram to understand why it is one of the most famous hotels in Bali.
3. Hideout Bali, sleep in a bamboo house
Hideout Bali started out as a small bamboo house in the jungle near east Bali. It quickly became very popular and the owners began to build more magical bamboo houses. We had the privilege of staying in one of them, Hideout Lightroom, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I kid you not, it is one of the most charming places I’ve slept in. Every house is built with bamboo and provides an immersive experience. I recommend Hideout Lightroom to those who are looking for a romantic gateway in nature.
I advise you to book it well in advance because it’s one of the more popular hotels in Bali.
4. Munduk Moding Plantation, a luxurious hotel in northern Bali
This hotel is perfect to stay in the northern part of Bali. If you are looking for a place to disconnect from the world and connect with nature without neglecting luxury, Munduk Moding Plantation is your ideal hotel. They have suites and villas for two and four people. Some of the rooms have a private pool.
In addition, the hotel offers a spa, restaurant and tennis courts. The most spectacular place in the hotel is the common pool, since it has a great panoramic view of the coffee plantations and mountains of the north of the island. The best time to enjoy this view is at sunset, as the sky is reflected in the pool. If you choose this accommodation in Bali, you will find yourself close to some of the best waterfalls on the island.
5. The Udaya Resort & Spa, in the heart of Ubud
This hotel is located in the heart of Ubud. The Udaya respects a Balinese aesthetic style and is surrounded by nature, so you can feel the essence of the island and experience the Balinese culture, while staying in one of the best hotels in Bali.

Without a doubt, the setting of the hotel is one of its strong points. It is a good option for families, since they also have a park for children.
10. The Acala Shri Sedana, the best hotel in Nusa Lembongan
During our stay in Nusa Lembongan, we stayed at The Acala Shri Sedana. We loved this hotel, so I had to include it on this this list of the best hotels in Bali. Apart from having beautiful and spacious rooms with open-air bathrooms, it has an infinity pool with beautiful views. I swear I could have stayed in that pool all day. Also, one of the mornings we were able to have breakfast by the pool. Quite an experience!
🏥 Remember that it is very important to travel with a travel insurance for Indonesia, since you never know if you are going to suffer any inconveniences during your stay. If something happens to you, all your expenses will be covered, as well as having a team of people who will help you. I always use and recommend Heymondo travel insurance, where I can offer you a 5% discount on your travel insurance..
11. Four Seasons Resort at Sayan, the best hotel in Bali
This is one of the most luxurious hotels in Bali. On their website they describe the experience of staying here as follows: “Float above the treetops on a spectacular suspension bridge and cross into a different world. With locally inspired experiences and rice bowl-shaped architecture facing the lush Ayung River Valley, our resort brings you closer to the heart and soul of Bali.” Sounds good, right?

12. Kamandalu Resort, sleep near rice paddies
If you are looking for an oasis of peace and luxury, this hotel in Bali is the perfect place for you. This resort has been offering unique experiences to its guests since 1992. Its concept consists of a village with luxury accommodation surrounded by a natural landscape featuring rice paddies. They have rooms and villas with capacity for up to 6 people. They have a swimming pool, spa, restaurant, etc. and they offer yoga classes and day tours.
In addition, it is a great option to get to know the island well, since, thanks to its central location in Ubud, it is close to many of the places to visit in Bali that you should not miss.
13. Veluvana Bali, bamboo house in Sidemen
If you have the dream of staying in a bamboo house lost among rice fields, this accommodation may be a great option for you. It is located in Sidemen, a beautiful area of Bali full of nature. It stands out for being very rural and for having views of the incredible Mount Agung. Veluvana Bali has two bamboo houses, one for two people and one for four people.
Both houses have a similar design: open spaces (including the bathroom), nets where you can lie down, glass windows… You will be able to feel the light and fresh air flowing through every corner of your bamboo villa. If it’s really hot, you can cool off in the rain-forest shower or in the pool, where you can also enjoy a floating breakfast.
14. Six Senses Uluwatu, villa in Bali in front of the sea
One of the best ways to end a trip to Bali is to enjoy a few nights in the beautiful area of Uluwatu, where the best beaches in Bali are located. In this case, I suggest you stay at the Six Senses Uluwatu, one of the best luxury hotels in Bali. It is true that spending a night in this hotel is not cheap, but if you are in Bali on your honeymoon, it may be an ideal option.
The hotel is located on a cliff, for which sea views are guaranteed. Even from the hotel pool! In addition, Six Senses Uluwatu has a restaurant, gym and spa. The spa has treatment rooms, a hot tub, relaxation room, sauna, steam room, and yoga room. They offer different rooms and villas with private pools.
15. Hoshinoya Bali, mix between Balinese and Japanese
Imagine a hotel that mixes the Balinese style with enigmatic Japanese architecture. You can find this in Hoshinoya Bali. This unique and special hotel in Bali is located in Ubud, one of the favorite regions for tourists. If you are going to stay here, do not miss my Ubud travel guide, where I tell you what to see and do in the area.
The hotel wants to spread the spirituality and relaxation that only a place like Bali can offer. It achieves this in part thanks to its enviable location, since the hotel stands on a hill lost in the Balinese jungle and with a river at its feet. In this way, Hoshinoya Bali unites us with nature.
Among the hotel’s facilities, you will find an outdoor swimming pool, a restaurant, a sake bar and a spa center with massage services, as well as open spaces that invite you to relax. In addition, the hotel offers different activities to get closer to the Balinese culture.

If you are looking for a hotel in Bali that will leave you speechless as soon as you enter, Eco Six Bali has all the chance to do so. It is located on the outskirts of Ubud, exactly half an hour’s drive north, in a fairly isolated area. Therefore, if you are interested in spending one or two nights in an accommodation to rest and enjoy incredible views, Eco Six Bali can be a very good option.

Every morning, they serve breakfast in your own room.
17. Munduk Cabins, enjoy this hotel in northern Bali
There is a place in Bali where the heat and the tropical environment give way to the mountains and the freshness. I am talking about Munduk, a beautiful region located in the north of Bali. Here you can enjoy a totally different atmosphere. You will be surrounded by lakes, mountains, trees and can even expect to be a bit cool. One of the best hotels located here is Munduk Cabins.
It is a boutique resort made up of several wooden cabins and spaces linked by suspended wooden walkways, perfect for enjoying a relaxing stay. You can watch the sunset from the outdoor Jacuzzi, have fun in the pool or get warm around the fire pit. They have different types of rooms and studios.
18. Magic Hills Bali, one of the best hotels in Bali
As you may have already seen, bamboo houses are very popular in Bali. In my opinion, if you want to live a unique and unforgettable experience, they are a safe bet. One of the best villas in Bali made from this material is Magic Hills Bali. This accommodation is located in Selat, a town located north of Sidemen. It is a very rural area surrounded by nature.
At Magic Hills Bali you can wake up to the sound of the birds, appreciate a landscape full of rice fields and savor the real culture of Bali, far from traffic and major cities. It is the ideal place to disconnect and connect with your surroundings and great company. The villa has a small private pool. Breakfast is included and the floating breakfast is free of charge.

This hotel is located in Uluwatu, very close to Thomas Beach and Padang Padang, two of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and have sea views.
The hotel has a bar, restaurant and even surf lessons. It is one of the best areas to stay in Bali if you travel with friends.
20. Stone House, perfect for honeymooners
Stone House is one of the best hotels in Bali for honeymooners, although it is true that almost every hotel in Bali that I have mentioned are a great option to go on honeymoon.
