Bali Travel Reviews: Resorts and Flights

Sanur Beach

Jyaga and Raymond have spent an excessive amount of time in Bali in recent years. We’ve stayed at many of the island’s hotels and resorts and have flown many of the airlines operating domestic flights to and from Bali. We dearly hope this list of Bali travel reviews might be helpful in planning any future trips to the island!

Looking for a hotel recommendation in Bali? Find reviews for hotels and resorts on the island of Bali below! We’ve personally stayed and reviewed each one listed.

All but two of the hotels and resorts reviewed have been awarded a five-star rating by the local authorities. However, since such hotels aren’t created equally, we’ve separated them into three categories corresponding to the style of each property.

Small resorts typically featuring private villas and exceptional service, with a price to match.

Resorts typically operated by upmarket brands from larger chains, priced between luxury resorts and starter resorts.

Resorts in the starting end of the spectrum, typically with the lowest prices between the three categories.

South Bali (Benoa, Canggu, Kuta, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Seminyak, Uluwatu)
This is where you’d find many of Bali’s popular beaches and stretches from the cliffs of Uluwatu to trendy Seminyak and quaint Sanur. Staying here is recommended for those looking for a beach vacation, not far away from the airport.

Central and East Bali (Ubud and Candidasa)
Ubud, in Central Bali, is the island’s cultural capital, and where you’ll find many places and events tied closely to Bali’s rich culture.
