Top 5 luxury resorts in Bali

Bali is located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands and a part of Indonesia. The country has a population of over 3.5 million people and is a hot tourist destination for travelers around the world. The weather in Bali makes the island a popular destination, particularly when it’s cool at home. The average temperature on Bali is in the mid- to upper-80s all year long making it the perfect getaway.  There are many choices of accommodation on the island and here are the top 5:

1 Jimbaran Puri Bali

A luxury resort hotel, the resort offers the perfect romantic getaway. Individual cottages and villas promise privacy and the generous views of the sea promise relaxation. There are only 41 cottages at the resort making it small enough that you feel like you’re on your own island yet spacious enough that you’ll never run out of things to do.

2 Viceroy Bali

Villas at Viceroy offer private pools, European fittings and Balinese architectural features. With marble floors and luxurious furnishings, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a tiny corner of heaven. A private helipad is located only meters from the main lobby making arrivals and departures extremely convenient.

3 Ubud Hanging Gardens

38 luxury villas, each with their own heated, infinity pool, will relax you into submission. Set in the forest, the experience and memories you take away from the resort will be like none other. Visit the spa for a full-body massage after a long, activity filled day and you’ll sleep like a baby.

4 Amandari

There may be no other resort that brings such a feel of the island. Made with materials local to Ubud, by craftsmen living in the area, you will feel at home in the peaceful surroundings. Each of the 30 suites is privately walled with their own gardens. Located near the art community of Ubud, traveling artists will fall in love with this resort as soon as they step foot on the grounds.

5 Amankila

34 free-standing beach houses sit on a cliff overlooking the Lombok Straits. Special suites at the resort have their own, private pools and other guests are treated to a 3-tiered pool seen nowhere else. The resort is located on a private beach and offers excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities for the adventurous tourist.

No matter where you decide to stay on the island, you’re sure to have the holiday of a lifetime. Miles of beach, seaside cliffs and tropical forests offer relaxing scenery. Bali weather will guarantee sunny days and warm nights, perfect if you are looking for a tropical vacation destination. Treat yourself to luxury in one of these top five resorts; you’ll not have a better holiday anywhere.

    I recently stayed at The Viceroy in Ubud and had a great experience. The service was personal and very detail oriented, and I loved the privacy afforded by the private villas (and private pool). Its worth noting that that it is a boutique hotel so it is on the smaller side (which is great), but it’s worth venturing off the hotel grounds for meals once in awhile to get a bit of variety, and Ubud has a lot to offer.
    I shot some pics of the hotel (and surroundings) in my Bali set here: ttp://www.flickr.com/photos/purplepassport/sets/72157625471002303/
