So you've done it: you've booked a trip to beautiful Bali. Congratulations! You're going to have a blast. Where you stay, though, depends on what you're hoping to get from your vacation. With a vast array of Bali hotels, this jewel of an island boasts a little something for everyone.
Those seeking a life in the lap of luxury should head to the Southern peninsula—and Nusa Dua in particular—where four- and five-star accommodations line the white-sand beaches and palm-fringed gardens of this picturesque spot. The area around Kuta, packed with clubs and bars, will thrill the younger crowd with Bali cheap hotels, while families might want to seek accommodation around Jimbaran Beach, where the waves aren't too strong for swimming.
How to Spend your Days in Bali
If you're content to spend your vacation gazing at a perfect sea from a sun lounger on the balcony of your Bali hotel, then this is the spot for you. But there's also plenty to do in Bali, from snorkeling and diving off the island's East Coast to a few days spent in the cultural center of Ubud, where you'll find some great museums and galleries. Visit the craft markets and sample some typical Indonesian cuisine (satay anyone?). With hotels in Bali running the gamut from five-star palace to modest backpacker beach shack, it's not hard to imagine that you'll easily find a place to call your own—if only for a few weeks.
