Hotels in Bali
Resembling a stylized Balinese village, this luxury resort in Nusa Dua features tropical gardens, a white sand beach lined with daybeds, and a vast network of lagoon pools connecting seven regular pools and manmade waterfalls.
The Bulgari Resort is perched in the southernmost tip of Bali, allowing for sunrise and sunset views from any of the 59 freestanding, private villas.
Privacy is the reason to reserve one of this Aman’s 35 thatched-roof suites, set behind bougainvillea-covered sandstone walls.
The hotel's name means "beautiful bamboo" in Balinese. John Hardy transplanted four 150-year-old teak houses to the site, ensuring rain-forest trees were left intact, and decorated them using Indonesian antiques.
Bali’s most seductive new hideaway has one foot in the air (an impossibly cantilevered pavilion seems to float skyward over a cliff) and the other firmly planted in the earth.
Ideally located in Seminyak, the Downtown Villas are just a two-minute walk from the city’s shopping and dining district and a mere 15 minutes from the beach.
Set on a precipice 100 feet above the Indian Ocean, this unique Indonesian island retreat quite literally rises above other Jimbaran Bay resorts.
The secluded experience at Spa Village Resort Tembok Bali begins with a three-hour drive through rainforests and volcanic fields followed by a shoulder and foot massage and a cool herbal drink upon arrival.
A design junkie’s dream, this ultrasleek five-bedroom private property (which guests rent in its entirety) feels more South Beach than Seminyak.
Komaneka at Bisma, is a veritable gallery unto itself. These days one can have one’s karma cleansed, learn kite-making and Balinese dance, or be healed by a djamoe medicine man, often without leaving the premises.
If it weren’t for the surrounding rice paddies of Kerobokan, you could be forgiven for mistaking Kafe Warisan for a Parisian bistro.
In true Aman form, this luxurious hideaway displays an unwavering commitment to seclusion and romance from its perch high above the Ayung River gorge on the outskirts of Ubud. The resort is a re-imagined Balinese village, where pebbled walkways meander along 30 freestanding suites.
