Moonlight Villa

Awesome. Absolutely decadent. I discovered the Moonlight on accident one day and it changed my world. In terms of luxury, it's on par with the nearby Istana, but with a much more cozy and intimate in feel. The rooms are like nothing I've ever experienced, from flat screen TVs to silk pillow cases,...

The Istana

Perfection. A stay at the Istana feels out of body - it is heaven. Everything from the grounds, to the stately dining area and spacious bedrooms is masterfully designed, carefully thought out and overwhelmingly comforting. The attention to detail is amazing, from the collection of mammal skulls...

The Kampung

The Kampung is my favorite place to stay in Bali and there are more reasons for that than I can list here. Part paradise, part home away from home, the Kampung's coolest feature is it's village-like feel, recreated from antique traditional homes. I also really loved the outdoor bathrooms - totally...

Hotel Tugu Bali

If heaven were a hotel, it might look like this. Elaborately adorned with more cultural and historical artifacts than most museums, the grounds of this resort define refined southeast Asian elegance. Upon arrival, I was speechless, in sheer awe of my surroundings. The welcome lounge and...

Villa Lovecho

The perfect getaway. Not one of of Bali's luxury-end properties by any means, but very comfortable and a comfortable price to go along with it. Each of the two villas has three bedrooms (which can be rented individually or as a unit), an outdoor kitchen, private plunge pool and garden in a secluded...

Blue Heaven Bali

For as much as I was annoyed by the wedding chapel at Blue Point Bay, I can almost overlook it here at Blue Heaven. The view and poolside setting are just so stunning, I'd gladly share it with an ecstatic Japanese bride. Shoot, I'll even share her room. The rooms here are extremely nice, and although...

Puri Uluwatu Villas

Love the surfing background of this place and the excellent surf guide service that comes as a perk with your stay here. I have mixed feelings on the villas themselves. This is truly one of the most amazing swimming pools and ocean views I've seen anywhere. But the rooms have a cave-like quality to them...

Waka di Ume Resort

Beautiful and luxurious, the Wapa di Ume is first and foremost a retreat. Everything here is geared towards pampering you. Designed around verdant rice paddies and catering to spa and pool needs, this is a place to get away from it all. Backpackers and rugged travelers seeking Ubud's more lively...

Sagitarius Inn

Great deal for the money. Located just footsteps away from the Monkey Sanctuary, this location is ideally located in town, near most of Ubud's main attractions. The gardens surrounding the rooms are green and beautiful, and there is a nice-sized pool area. This is by no means a luxury property, but I...
