Hotels in Bali

Located in Nusa Dua, the Grand Hyatt Bali has its own quiet stretch of beach but is also convenient to major attractions like the Museum Pasifika and Turtle Island.
The most family-friendly of Bali’s resorts, the Conrad has over 1,000 feet of pristine beach fronting a calm, child-safe lagoon—and a plethora of activities that take advantage of the setting.
Once the vacation home of renowned Indonesian architect and art collector Hendra Hadiprana, this 20-villa property combines the Hadiprana family’s personal art and antique collection with a very English feel.
St. Regis’s first resort property in Asia is decorated indigenously with Javanese fabrics and brass. In the evenings, more than 100 tiki torches illuminate the hotel’s black-sand pond. Guests can request a personal butler who will arrange for anything from packing to in-room barbecues.
381 Balinese-wood rooms on 23 beachfront acres dotted with sculpted gardens in an exclusive enclave of Bali.
The undisputed glamour-puss of Bali hotels, the all-suite Legian sits center stage on fabulous Legian Beach, just a quick skip from the swish shops and nightclubs of Seminyak.
Even Aman junkies will admit that this extraordinary resort, perched above the dramatic Lombok Strait on Bali's forested east coast, raises the bar for the hotel group.

Set between green rice fields and a black-sand beach, the location is stunning, and if it feels a bit sleepy that’s precisely the intention. Seminyak’s trendy boutiques are just 40 minutes away—gods and traffic willing—yet this corner of Bali is still disarmingly quiet.
Situated on the white-sand beach of Sanur, the Puri Santrian is a quiet hotel just 15 minutes from the village center. Overlooking either the tropical gardens or the ocean, the 182 guestrooms are furnished with tiled floors, all-white bedding, and dark wood accents.
