  • 1. THE ANVAYA BEACH RESORT IN KUTA


The next stop is Kuta, the well-known area not only because the area in fast is the closest with Ngurah Rai International Airport, but also so many attraction here from bar, waterpark, beach, shopping mall, local market, in other words unlike the other area in Bali, Kuta always gives you Bali life that all about party, drinks, full energy, and international even local crowds love to spend their day here because you can find anything here in Kuta. I was trying to look for hidden gems in Kuta, I mean something more elegance, luxury, but it was kinda hard because I think Kuta is always packed, and too mainstream, but then there's The Anvaya Beach Resort Balisomething that I am not expected here's in Kuta (or South Kuta/Tuban to be exact), it's definetely not a hidden gem, but the brightest gem in the area because everything is so polished compared any other accomodation the area, yes because it's 1 year new, yes because they're improved everything and I loved it.

  • 2. THE LEGIAN BALI IN SEMINYAK

I have no doubts when I enter the gate of The Legian Bali, that the oldies but goodies vibes were so strong. Huge pillars, classic architecture, yet elegant interior design, my memory brought me back to my first luxurious getaway at the most luxurious resort in Java. One thing they have in common, not the name, nor expensive rates but the feeling. Simple welcome drink that energizes me, although I was not really tired that day, Indonesian national flower of Jasmine in the refreshing towel was telling me that my days at the resort will be awesome.

I stayed at studio suite in 3rd floor that facing the ocean (I mean it such a good room to feel the beachfront vibes all day all night). Luxury at The Legian Bali is a definition of classic, experience, atmosphere, exclusivity and excellent value that is maintained in the location that so growing and crowded like Seminyak.

  • 3. TUGU HOTEL BALI IN CANGGU


    1. A Testament to Old Bali

    1. The concept of Tugu Hotels is The Art, Soul, and Romance. Like no other who tend to mix between modern contemporary and traditional Indonesian culture. Tugu hotel is serving you not only the old Bali but what makes Indonesia is Indonesia right now. The story, the artifacts, although not all the room interior is an ancient artifact, the feeling and ambiance remain true old Indonesia, especially Java & Bali.


    And while you feel the experience of old Java when you stay in Tugu Hotel Bali. Don't think that the beach life will end by the sun is set. Depend you accept the fact that Canggu is a surf and destination for young people, if you stay at Rejang Suite that has view to the horizon, at night while you enjoying the milky way, the sound of the insect and waves, the tub, the fire torch, you will hear the live music from the nearest beach club.

  • 4. INTERCONTINENTAL BALI IN JIMBARAN






It was probably my best stay experience during my recent trip to Bali earlier this year. I never thought that I got it at Jimbaran, since I didn't put Jimbaran in the first place in my itinerary, but then Club InterContinental Bali Resort has changed the whole my Jimbaran expectation, I can't fully thank enough, I really had a fun and memorable stay at this resort, And as a Club guest, it has been more perfect. Soon, I will tell you why? 

InterContinental Bali Resort is a huge complex of Luxury Hotel and Resort perfectly situated facing the Jimbaran Bay, the building perfectly represents classical and magnificent of Bali culture and tradition, and when we are talking about the Luxury side of it, The Club InterContinental has it all to offer. More personal review The Club InterContinental Jimbaran Bali Resort Experience


  • 5. BEST HOTEL & RESORT IN ULUWATU
    I have a couple of names but definitely, need to experience myself (Such as Bulgari, Anantara or soon open Renaissance & Six Senses)

  • 6. KARMA KANDARA IN UNGASAN


I heard about Karma Kandara since 3 years ago, from my beloved friend after she broke up with her boyfriend and come to Bali for the sake of move-on, so did I, because I broke up with my beloved MF who had relationship with me for almost 4 years lol, just kidding, I always been wanted to go to Karma, people always said to me that I should at least visit Karma Kandara when I'm in Bali.

I have been staying at Nusa Dua, Seminyak like I always did if I came to Bali, and I was thinking to stay in the other part of Bali, and it led me to Ungasan. Nothing in my mind but infamous and exotic Karma Beach Club, the infinity pool of Karma Kandara, the high cliff of Karma Spa, and breathtaking view of Indian Ocean that you can see also from Temple Lounge & Bar. More personal review Welcome to Karma Kandara

  • 7. AWARTA VILLA IN NUSA DUA (well it's Villa, you definitely will like it. But, do I need to make a separate list for Villas, because I think it's different?)


How I loved low season in Bali, and how I loved that I chose Awarta Luxury Villa & Spa for my stay in Nusa Dua, Bali. I remember why I picked Awarta Nusa Dua because as a newcomer or we said it less than 2 years old property in Bali (now 4-5 years), it is still fresh & pristine. Also, the concept of its property is Peranakan or royal oriental, when some of the new opening hotel and resort going minimalist, but not with Awarta, so that you can find one of their main restaurants has a very strong royal oriental impression, it is Ru Yi Chinese Fine Dining. The rest is a fusion mixed with traditional Indonesian heritage, with strong images of wood, carving, also with tropical plants like the bird of paradise and frangipani flowers in each villa and actually everywhere. Awarta is the real definition of home away from home in its luxury Bali way. More personal review Check-in at Awarta Luxury Villas Nusa Dua

  • 8. BEST HOTEL & RESORT IN SANUR
    I have a couple of names but definitely, need to experience myself (like Fairmont, Hyatt Regency or Sudamala)

  • 9. ALAYA RESORT IN UBUD (Ubud, it deserves to be on a separate own list | Best Luxury Hotel & Resort in Ubud SOON)


No doubt that Alaya Hotel Ubud became one of  the internet's most favorite hotel in Ubud, because what I can say; great food, great location, great hospitality and I have enjoyed my stay here totally, and no doubt again, there is a chance you will not get the room booked if you think too much.

A Great Hospitality - I felt very been welcomed every time I visit Alaya or Petani, thank you so much :) and they also have a mission to help in need with all their program, totally worth to be involved by stay here 1 or 2 nights when you are in Ubud. Alaya Ubud is quite a well-known hotel in Ubud and those positives reviews are indeed true, at least for myself and proved everytime I step my feet here.

  • 10. ALILA VILLA SOORI BALI IN TABANAN (Kinda need an update, because I have stayed here when the property under Alila management, now they become Soori Bali)


Design Savvy, Leisure Seeker, Culture Hunter, Nature Lover, you named it your intention and at Soori Bali you can fulfill everything you seek from design, leisure, culture, and nature. More personal review Alluring Stay at Alila Villa Soori (Now it's Soori Bali). Nothing much to say, because I think Tabanan kinda dying in term of Bali tourism, even the best property such as Pan Pacific closed its door (but I think it's for big maintenance, people still love it because of its Gold courses), but people tend to stay in Canggu that obvious close with Seminyak, the only touristy spot in Tabanan is only Tanah Lot, but if you want to feel the privacy and just stay away from the hustle bustle, I think this villa can be your choice.

  • 11. MENJANGAN DYNASTY RESORT IN WEST BALI





This eco-friendly resort is much inspired by luxury African safari tent, you can get the ambience when the staff at the reception greeted you, with safari uniform and massive bamboo structure all over the resort; Lobby, restaurant, spa and its own dive centre, brought to you by Bali Hai Diving Academy with all the water fun and even adventure to Ijen Carter they have provided.


For me personally, it was a great destination to escape from bustling part of Bali, it wasn't really "Bali", it was completely different, but you don't have to pay for an extra airfare to feel the experience. I can't compare it with any other places because it's unique, you can explore the underwater by snorkeling or diving, having fun by canoeing or play with the paddle board if you got extra time you can explore our West Bali National Park and mangrove. But if you want to enjoy the resort, you can swim at their Infinity Pool with a view, enjoying the afternoon tea at the Pasir Putih beach club & bar while sunbathing, or even try their beachfront Pasir Putih Spa by Ambiente. More personal review Escape to Menjangan Dynasty Resort in West Bali
