Bali Luxury Hotels

With its striking black sand beaches giving way to an underwater paradise teeming with fish, turtles, and exquisite coral reefs, Bali has gained an international reputation as a leading luxury holiday destination. Ideal for anyone looking to pamper both mind and body, the lush island paradise of Bali is a magnet for holidaymakers in search of an indulgent holiday experience. From iconic temples and sacred traditions to customary flower-petal offerings, Bali’s rich and diverse culture makes it the ideal location for that special island getaway.

Things to see in Bali

No visit to the island paradise of Bali is complete without a trip to one of its celebrated temples. Located in the foothills of Batukau mountain, Pura Luhur Batukau is probably the most easily accessible of these. Founded in the 11th century, this Hindu temple was built to protect the local people from evil spirits and is to this day a highly sacred site for the island’s Hindu population. Set in lush green surroundings, Puri Lukisan museum in Ubud is one of the oldest art museums in Bali. Showcasing a range of classic and contemporary works, the museum’s impressive collections are spread out over three buildings and are a great illustration of the vibrancy of local Balinese art. For a restorative experience, head to Tirta Empul holy springs where you can take part in a ritual bathing ceremony in crystal-clear waters said to hold magical healing properties.

Many of the top luxury hotels in Bali are arranged as individual guest villas where you can opt for minimalist, ultramodern chic or lavish, Balinese-style interiors. The banks of the Ayung River are lined with a number of upmarket hotels, many offering tailored yoga and well-being retreats, private chefs, and personal butler services. Quite a few high-end hotels in Bali also offer their own on-site spas where guests can spoil themselves with a traditional Balinese massage, indulgent oil therapy, or invigorating body scrub. For a truly decadent experience, opt for a Bali beach bungalow, where you can fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping gently on the shore.

Where to stay in Bali

Attracted by its high-end shopping, spectacular beaches, and some of the most luxurious spas in Bali, sophisticated Seminyak draws discerning vacationers from all over the world. Art lovers should make for the town of Ubud, the beating heart of Bali’s art scene. Each fall, it hosts a celebrated writers’ festival that draws culture aficionados from around the globe and features a wealth of art exhibitions, musical events, and spoken-word performances. Nusa Dua, a tranquil beach town in eastern Bali, combines stunning landscape with a sun-drenched coastline and offers some of the most popular luxury resorts in Bali.

How to get to Bali

A perennially popular holiday destination, Bali is easily accessible by air. There are a number of direct flights to Denpasar, the capital of Bali, where Ngurah Rai International Airport welcomes thousands of visitors each day. Most luxury hotels in Bali provide a shuttle service to bring guests from the airport directly to their hotel. One of the most popular ways of getting around Bali is by bemo, an open-air minibus perfect for negotiating the island’s narrow roads. However, for comfort and convenience, hiring a driver is probably the best option, with most local drivers usually eager to explain the island’s many rich customs and traditions to visitors.
