The best luxury hotels in Bali

W Retreat and Spa Bali

Book a night at this ultra-glam hotel and you’ll make your besties back home jealous with yourselfies. Each room pays homage to Balinese heritage, with enormous leaf print rugs and vast expanses of dark wood. It’s also one of the most modern hotels in Bali, with a bar that resembles a UFO and plenty of bright splashes of colour. The furniture wouldn’t look out of place in the Tate Modern, either.

Although The W Retreat is luxurious, it’s also a hotel for people who like to party. It has eight restaurants and lounges, including the three-storey WOOBAR – one of the top things to do in Bali. When the inevitable hangover kicks in, you can head to the hotel’s Away spa. Open all hours, its treatment rooms look like mini nightclubs, with glowing orb beds and a VIP area-like waiting room.

Where: Seminyak

Rooms: from £316 per room per night

COMO Uma Ubud

With just 46 rooms, suites and villas, this boutique resort is one of Ubud’s chicest places to stay. It’s ideal for healthy travellers, as the owners are passionate about wellness and fitness. Activities like group cycle rides and guided hikes are always on offer and, as Ubud is one of Bali’s most beautiful areas, it’s well worth signing up. This emphasis on well-being extends to the cuisine, with a focus on locally sourced food and sustainable seafood.

Where: Ubud

Rooms: from £394 per room per night

Amarterra Villas Bali Nusa Dua

When it comes to honeymoon hotels in Bali it’s hard to beat the Amarterra. Each of its 39 villas have state of the art entertainment systems and fully equipped kitchens, as well as their own private pools. We’re not talking puddle-sized plunge pools, either, but proper ones that stretch the entire length of each villa. Tinkling fountains, comfy day beds and overhanging fruit trees add to the luxurious appeal. There’s almost no reason to leave your villa, although it’s worth venturing out at least once to sprawl on the resort’s gorgeous beach.

Where: Nusa Dua

Rooms: from £309 per room per night

Best luxury resorts in Bali

Viceroy Bali

This ultra-luxurious hotel was voted Best Resort in the World at the 2018 CNTraveler Reader’s Choice Awards, and it’s easy to see why. The 25 villas are all equipped with luxurious features such as marble bathrooms, cutting-edge sound systems and private outdoor spaces.

If you can bear to leave your room, the resort also has a spa, library, gym and stunning infinity pool overlooking the lush Valley of the Kings. If that’s not enough, there are plenty of activities available too. Feel zen after a long yoga session, whip up Indonesian dishes at a cookery class or take a guided bike tour around the local villages and the iconic Tegallalang rice terrace.

Alila Villas Uluwatu

Perched on the Bukit Peninsula on the southernmost coast of Bali, this luxury resort has 56 villas and each one comes with its very own butler.

The beach below is popular with surfers, but the golden sands are also perfect for sunbathing. It’s incredibly environmentally friendly– Alila Villas Uluwatu was one of the first hotels in Bali to receive the highest level of certification from Green Globe for environmentally sustainable design.
