With thirty swanky villas, each with its own personal butler, it’s luxury living at its finest. Inside, you’ll find seriously plush bathrooms with deep tubs and fancy toiletries that scream "treat yourself." Sure, the beach is a bit of a hike down the cliff, but who needs sand between their toes when you've got a jaw-dropping 50-meter infinity pool waiting for you? And, when you're done splashing around, you can enjoy some seriously good Indonesian grub at one of the hotel’s two top-notch restaurants.

Think of this place less like your typical hotel and more like your very own private luxury hideaway. You’ll enjoy a spa-like bathroom, a cozy living area with a kitchen overlooking a private swimming pool, and a stunning verandah with super comfy Dedon loungers that you'll basically live on. The hotel’s interiors are pretty next level too, with exposed timbers, sleek stone, and the perfect blend of breezy fabrics and soothing candlelight that scream relaxation. But don’t worry, if you start feeling a bit too zen, the vibrant Seminyak is just a short 20-minute journey away. This place is all about offering the epitome of tranquility while keeping the excitement close by.

The Laguna Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua

3. The Laguna Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua

Get ready for the royal treatment the moment you step foot in this expansive resort. Seriously, this place goes above and beyond. Think 24-hour private butler service, airport transfers, and yes, they even mark your arrival with the striking sound of a gong (talk about making an entrance). Each room is nestled amidst the lush grounds of the hotel, surrounded by tranquil lagoon pools and outdoor seating areas that practically beg you to bask in the sun. After a night of pure comfort in your ridiculously cozy bed, start your day right with a breakfast spread fit for kings and queens. From sushi and curries to dim sum and traditional Indonesian dishes, it's a feast that sets the tone for a day of ultimate relaxation by the water.

W Bali, Seminyak

4. W Bali, Seminyak

Seminyak has lots of hotels, but in our opinion - this one stands out among the best. With large contemporary rooms decorated in sleek whites and muted tones, every inch of this place exudes modern sophistication. But it's not just about the aesthetics - you’ll enjoy Bose sound systems, four cascading pools complete with sunbeds, and attentive servers ready to deliver those Margaritas to your poolside paradise. And the neighborhood? A buzzing hive of bars and eateries. We recommended the laid-back Chill Bar, nestled within the 24/7 spa area for maximum relaxation vibes, and the beachfront gem, Starfish Bloo, where Pan Asian cuisine reigns supreme and taste buds come alive.

The mood? 5-star luxury awaits.
Location perks? Did we mention yoga sessions are on the menu? Just ask, and they'll help you find your Zen.
Budget range? A bit of a splurge.

Maya Sanur Resort & Spa, Sanur

5. Maya Sanur Resort & Spa, Sanur

The beachfront location of Maya is pretty envy-inducing. But the perks of this hotel don’t stop there. Think beautifully designed apartments stacked in a sleek Modernist style over pools - yes, you read that right. Each room exudes a chic Danish mid-century vibe, complete with glass doors opening onto balconies and terraces with lush plantings for that extra touch of privacy. Spend the day relaxing by the water before heading over to one of the hotel’s multiple onsite restaurants for a delicious dinner. Or, if you’re looking for drinks with a view, The Tree Bar overlooking Sanur Beach is an absolute winner - perfect for a couple of well-crafted cocktails as you soak in the scenery.

6. Sun Suko Boutique Resort & Yoga Retreat, Pemuteran

This boutique retreat is perfect for those seeking true escapism. With ten exquisite Javanese wood houses, each nestled around a central pool, this stylish hotel effortlessly blends Balinese tradition with luxury touches. Think traditional furniture and contemporary art, open-air showers, and outdoor terraces. You won’t go hungry here either, with the hotel serving up healthy and delicious dishes inspired by local cuisines that'll make your taste buds sing.  But the real showstopper? It’s got to be the location itself - a breathtaking panorama of dramatic mountains and untouched greenery that offers an unparalleled sense of peace and quiet. It doesn’t get more Zen than this. 

The mood? Tranquility is not just a vibe here, it's a way of life.
Location perks? A leisurely 15-minute stroll leads you to the beach, where you can enjoy diving, snorkeling, and visits to nearby waterfalls.

The Kayana, Seminyak

7. The Kayana, Seminyak

Stroll down a path lined with fragrant frangipani flowers (the tropical kind, not the dessert) to reach your room at this gorgeous hotel. You’ll be greeted with your own private oasis - a well-kept garden area complete with a plunge pool and sunbeds that welcome you in. Inside, you’ll discover spacious beds and lavish bathrooms fit for royalty. Whether you're savoring breakfast while overlooking the swimming pool from the restaurant or indulging in the top-notch spa offerings, we reckon your days here will be filled with nothing but luxury and relaxation. You can even enjoy complimentary afternoon tea served right to your villa- talk about fancy.

The mood? Just looking at the photos of this place exudes a sense of calm and luxury. 
Location perks? With so much to enjoy within the hotel's confines, it might be tempting to stay within those four walls. But if you're feeling adventurous, the lively bars and shops of Seminyak, including the famous Potatohead Beach bar, are just a stone's throw away.
Budget range? A well-priced stay for couples or families.

Komaneka at Monkey Forest, Ubud

8. Komaneka at Monkey Forest, Ubud

In the heart of Bali's cultural hub lies this Komaneka resort. Nestled amidst Ubud’s tropical jungle, it's a serene oasis that puts you right in the midst of the action. Trust us, you'll thank us later for this choice. Enjoy a Balinese-style villa, complete with comfortable beds adorned with delicate petals- oo la la indeed. Start your day with a swim in the heated infinity pool before heading over to the onsite spa for beauty and massage treatments that'll make you feel like royalty. After all that relaxation, satisfy your cravings with complimentary afternoon tea, featuring delectable cakes.

Alassari Plantation, Selemadeg

9. Alassari Plantation, Selemadeg

Looking for a proper off-the-grid retreat? This lofty bamboo treehouse is the perfect choice. But hey, if heights aren't your thing, don’t worry - there are luxurious Javanese wooden villas on offer too. Outside of your room, you’ll enjoy tons of amenities, including an outdoor pool, a cozy spa offering personalized massages, morning yoga sessions, and even a free laundry service. And if that’s not enough, you can sign up for mountain trekking adventures, Balinese cooking classes, visits to local healers, and the chance to mingle with the local community during full moon ceremonies. 

The mood? This place is not just about relaxation; it's about diving deep into a new place, its people, and its culture in the most luxurious way possible.
Location perks? Enjoy a relaxing stay in Selemadag, a narrow South-Western stretch away from the coastal hustle.
Budget range? A moderately-priced stay, ideal for family getaways.

Serenity Eco Guesthouse, Canggu

10. Serenity Eco Guesthouse, Canggu

Experience Bali on a budget at this sweet eco-guesthouse in the heart of Canggu. Starting at just £6 for a dorm bed or around £25 for your own cozy space (yes, you read that right, £25), it really is a steal. The rooms offer comfortable sleeping quarters and a relaxed vibe, but, in our opinion, the real magic lies outside with a range of amenities: daily yoga sessions, a refreshing pool, rejuvenating massage and beauty treatments, and an excellent all-day vegan café. While the on-site policy doesn’t permit smoking or alcohol, fear not - Serenity is conveniently close to bars and restaurants, allowing you to recover here and indulge elsewhere.

The mood? Perfectly situated and kind on the wallet, it’s the best of both worlds.
Location perks? You’re a short five-minute stroll to the beach and a quick 20-minute jaunt to the bustling shopping and nightlife scenes of Seminyak and Kuta.
Budget range? This one’s a steal.
