Nestled into Bali’s southwest coast, well away from the hectic tourist bustle of the south, its minimalist style and beachside locale make it a great retreat for those looking for barefoot luxury. … read the full post

Bananas?

Kali Manik is a lovely three-bungalow eco-resort set on the black sands of Bali’s northern coast, about seven kilometres west of Seririt. If you’re looking for a relaxing midrange retreat where you can swing in a hammock, listen to birdsong and not do too much else, you’ve found it. But you could also base yourself … read the full post

Published by under Accommodation

menjangandeck

Located smack-bang in West Bali National Park, The Menjangan is spread across 382 hectares — yes, it’s massive — though the actual development covers a very modest area. If you’re looking for somewhere secluded and plush beachside in Bali that’s a bit different, you enjoy nature-based activities and your budget stretches to luxe, it may … read the full post

We love Bali’s wild and beautiful east coast, and we’re glad to see more places opening in out-of-the-way places to make the most of its stunning views and surf.

Review: United Colors of Bali

Published by under Accommodation

Colours around, and in, the pool.

If location close to the beach isn’t important to you during your trip to Bali, and you’d like a house but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to a villa, the relatively new United Colors of Bali in Canggu makes for a top value choice of place to stay, offering cute two-bedroom houses surrounding a pool … read the full post

Published by under Accommodation

Freshly-opened Brown Feather on Bali’s up-and-coming Jalan Batu Belig is the cutest little hotel we’ve seen in quite some time. With just 16 gorgeous, colonial-style rooms spread across two storeys, a paddy outlook and pool, it’s a great little place for those looking for something a bit different away from the crowds who are willing … read the full post

Review: Villa Saraswati, Ubud

Where to stay on Nusa Penida

Published by under Accommodation

front

Accommodation offerings on rugged, out-of-the-way Nusa Penida are slim, and mostly focused around the main beach of Toyo Pakeh and in Sampalan, which is also home to the main market on the island. Here’s a rundown of where you can stay at the moment — expect things to change here quickly now though, with the … read the full post
