Want to find the best Bali can offer? Luxury Villa specialists, the staff from Villa Getaways share their favourite holiday destinations and tips for making luxury travel dreams a reality. Here's our insight into the top 5 Bali hot spots.
You just cannot grasp the legendary magic of Bali. Until you set foot in this mystical spot on planet earth... and then, it becomes palpable. Such a spectacularly colorful culture set against one picturesque setting after another easily gets one hooked on this warm ocean-embraced island that is part of, yet uniquely apart from Indonesia’s 17500 islands.
Bali's hot spots are well known. Here's our list of five of the best places in Bali for you to explore.
Seminyak: The Spa Capital of Bali!
Located in South Bali, Seminyak is a sophisticated beach town boasting high end restaurants and fashionable clothing shops. Well known for its spa experience, Seminyak is the perfect spot for your luxury villa accommodation if you enjoy relaxing with a massage or body treatment.
Ubud: Mountain Art Haven
Yearning for a whiff of cool, wet mountain air, an overdose of greenery, flora, fauna, and inspiration, an immersion of intense cultural presentations, and a plethora of satiating culinary adventures? Come to Ubud. Called the heart of Bali, Ubud stands nonpareil as an art haven.
Legian: Shopping Heaven
If you like the Kuta action but need a bit of space between, Legian is your kind of place. A beach haven with heaps of shopping covered—from garments to jewelry to surfshops and furniture—and a myriad of delectable restaurants, Legian itself is less hectic than downtown Kuta, (even if it is only a 5-minute taxi ride away) but is not far from the nightlife zone.
Uluwatu: Surfing Mecca
Uluwatu in one word would be: breathtaking. Translated, "ulu" means "land's end" and "watu" means "rock." Apart from its world-renowned super swells, which more than many consider Bali's best, Uluwatu’s lure is the absolutely mind-blowing panorama atop 100-meter cliffs, each angle as fantastic as the next. Take your pick of the many warungs perched on the cliffs from where you can drink off the Indian Ocean view while partaking of a hearty meal.
Nusa Dua: Rub Shoulders with the Rich and Famous
Jutting off the southern tip of the island of Bali, Nusa Dua lacks nothing of the gorgeous Bali scenery, only of the old-world, exotic, funky elegance that typifies the rest of the island. More expensive than most anywhere else in Bali, this place is for those who prefer professional, world class ambience to the funky island aura. There are plenty of 3 to 5-star accommodation options, all slick, modern and sophisticated.
Bali's climate is as warm as its smiling people, the food as colorful as its culture—a myriad flavors from across cultures and oceans, plentiful, and inexpensive, and the sceneries as beguiling as the overall ambiance—breathtaking and comforting. Small wonder that many visitors have succumbed to its charms have made home in this enthralling little isle.
