where to stay in bali?

Bali offers a huge variety of different environments, sights and experiences and we know that sometimes it can be hard to decide where is the best place to base yourself in Bali for your trip.  

So to maybe help you here are a few brief descriptions of each main area that visitors like to stay at, and as you will see they all offer something quite different.

The best thing though is that if you want to experience more than one area, that is no problem. Our villas are located all around Bali, and many of our guests stay at multiple different villas when they come.

One of the best combinations is to combine a stay in a central location like Seminyak or Canggu or Jimbaran, with a stay near the beaches in East Bali, or up in the highlands near Ubud, or the mountains near Munduk. This allows you to enjoy some of the best nightlife and restaurants in the South of Bali, before enjoying the remote beaches and scenic sea views in the East of Bali, and the lush green jungle, rolling rice fields, and cool air of the highlands.

Our team is ready to advise you on the best possible itinerary to fit your budget, group size and length of stay.
