Bali Hotels

Bali is more than a destination, it is a celebration of life. And though it is a small island, Bali is grand in every way. The celebration that is Bali invigorates the senses and takes shape in every moment of your visit to a romantic Bali hotel. The essence of Bali then, is a distinctive approach to life that makes the island so much more than just another sunny holiday spot.


From before-dawn ritual offerings for resident spirits to mesmerizing dances in moonlit nights, Balinese culture and Hindu mythology guide the flow of everyday life and welcome visitors with authentic smiles and genuine hospitality. This magical, traditional and yet tolerant culture is wrapped in a stunningly beautiful natural environment; from pristine white beaches, brilliant corals and thunderous surf, to verdant tropical rainforests dotted with magnificent waterfalls, green rice paddies on steep, curving terraces, and the silhouettes of volcanoes that dominate the skyline and the imagination.


For travelers, Bali is all things to all people. Pulsing nightlife is everywhere on the streets of Kuta, opulent private Bali hotels in Seminyak, world-class five-star facilities and glistening sand beaches of Nusa Dua or Sanur, and the yoga, art and international cuisine in Ubud. Choose your Bali hotel, then enjoy a massage, dive a coral-encrusted shipwreck, take some sun on a white sand beach, play 18 holes at a championship course, marvel at an ancient temple, climb a volcano, spot a rare bird, refine your yoga practice, and make memories with new friends and old acquaintances- all, and more, is Bali.
