Top 10 Best Luxury Hotels & Resorts in Bali


10 Jumana Bali Ungasan Resort

The Jumana Bali Ungasan, once a Banyan Tree property, is located 70 metres (230 feet) above sea level on the southern point of Bali, near the famous Uluwatu Temple, with views of a gold sand beach and the Indian Ocean. The majority of the resort’s 73 opulent villas have sea views and include a plunge pool, outdoor hot tub, and plenty of retractable floor-to-ceiling glass that transforms bedrooms into open-air cabanas. Traditional Balinese accents and modern Asian décor are mixed throughout the rooms, with a few sculptures or statuettes thrown in for good measure. There are numerous good eating options on site, as well as a world-class spa.

9 Amandari

Amandari, Bali’s cultural centre, is inspired like a traditional village and framed by jungle and rice terraces. Guests are cocooned under bamboo ceilings in alang-alang-thatched homes, some with pools and all with own tropical gardens. Their rooms are tastefully furnished with teak and coconut wood. Children attend dancing classes here, and religious processions pass through on a daily basis, descending down the steps that flow below Amandari to a 7th-century stone tiger — a theme repeated throughout the site. Guests may trek or ride the emerald-green countryside by following the route out of the settlement.

8 Bulgari Resort Bali

The Bvlgari Resort Bali, at the time the famous Bvlgari group’s second hotel, is situated on top of a 150 m (450 ft) high cliff that cascades down to the Indian Ocean. An inclined elevator leads to a beautiful private beach with a private beach club, ideal for lengthy walks along the coastline. The 59 freestanding and private villas each include an open-air pavilion, patio, and private plunge pool, with first-row homes offering excellent ocean views. Every natural feature in each home has been polished to a high sheen.

7 The St. Regis Bali Resort

The St. Regis Bali Resort is a stunning location that radiates beachside elegance and offers unsurpassed extravagance and award-winning refined luxury to the world’s most discriminating guests. The property lies in Nusa Dusa, a famous resort enclave created to provide guests with a comfortable environment for relaxing vacations. 123 luxurious suites and villas, each with handcrafted Balinese art, welcoming balconies, and marble baths, define spacious luxury. All rooms have access to the lagoons, which are peaceful and swimmable, as well as the St. Regis Butler Service. Award-winning restaurants, bars, and the Remède spa are just a few of the highlights.

6 Six Senses

The Six Senses Uluwatu Resort is located at Pecatu, on Bali’s southernmost peninsula, where “Pura Uluwatu,” a holy temple regarded one of the island’s fundamental spiritual pillars, is located. From every viewpoint, the stunning cliff-top Balinese-inspired Uluwatu resort provides unobstructed ocean vistas. The resort has 103 suites and villas that are influenced by local design, embrace nature, and provide every modern convenience. Locally inspired specialty treatments, multi-day integrated wellness programmes, and complimentary morning yoga sessions are available at the Six Senses Spa. Multiple swimming pools, an open-air event arena, function space, and three restaurants, including a chef’s table, are all available at the resort.

5 Alila Villas Uluwatu

Amid the south of the island, Alila Villas Uluwatu is situated in the arid savannah scenery of the Bukit Peninsular. The hotel is situated on a high plateau with limestone cliffs cascading down to the Indian Ocean. The view from the hotel is nothing short of spectacular. The hotel’s architecture, which blends in with the stunning surroundings, mixes the pleasures of traditional Balinese pavilion architecture and rural settings with a modern dynamic interpretation of space and form. The open-plan rooms with minimalistic décor are meant to provide guests a sense of comfort and spaciousness.

4 Four Seasons Resort Bali At Sayan

The Four Seasons Resort Sayan is a beautiful hillside retreat where man, humanity, and environment combine with the purest intent, encapsulating Bali at its intellectual and emotional finest. Four Seasons Sayan is an inspirational base from which to explore Bali’s cultural centre or to withdraw into nature’s peaceful embrace, only a ten-minute drive from the fashionable boutiques, artist ateliers, and atmospheric cafes of boho-chic Ubud. Guests are welcomed by a spectacular bridge that spans the Ayung River valley, which extends its lush arms underneath it. The property flows down the slope from the gravity-defying rooftop lotus pond to the two-tiered swimming pool that is cantilevered over the river.

3 Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve

Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, gets its name from the Sanskrit word for “temple.” It’s a tropical sanctuary dedicated to the self. The hotel, which is located in the Ubud forest and fronts the Ayung River, is designed to seem like a typical Balinese hamlet, complete with active rice farms. Each of the 60 luxury apartments and villas has a private outdoor space with views of the river or surrounding countryside, showcasing the area’s architecture and workmanship. Four restaurants offer healthy cuisine produced from the organic garden, but a romantic supper viewing the river or rice terrace may also be arranged.

2 Healing Village Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran

This luxury all-villa enclave in Bali is designed to seem like a traditional Balinese town and spans 14 hectares (35 acres) of coastline, offering resort guests direct access to the beach at sea level. There are 147 villas in the resort, which are located among lush tropical gardens. The opulent villas, each with its own private plunge pool, are set on a hillside dotted with vibrant flowers and Balinese temples. You may immerse yourself in native island culture, relax with holistic spa treatments, and dine at a variety of restaurants, including the beachside Sundara restaurant. The open-air Taman Wantilan restaurant offers even more sensory pleasures.

1 Amankila

Amankila (calm hill), a private beach resort overlooking the Lombok Strait operated by Aman, one of the world’s most elite hotel companies, with Mount Agung as a dramatic background. The 34 free-standing thatched-roof suites are connected to the resort’s facilities by elevated walkways and provide spectacular views from their hillside settings. Guests may unwind in the three-tiered pool or at the beach club on Amankila’s beach, which features silverblack sands and turquoise seas. The fact that Amankila is located in Karangasem, one of Bali’s most traditional regencies, sets it apart from other luxury Bali hotels.
