Bali is a hotspot for all types of travellers, like groups of backpackers, luxe explores and families with young children.
Not everyone wants to have kids around during their once-in-a-lifetime, relaxing, romantic holiday. It’s not uncommon to want to enjoy a little slice of paradise without the sound of children disturbing your peace.
Luckily, Bali has an extensive selection of adult-only hotels designed to allow guests to escape the shrieks and crying, and enjoy a quiet break away or a romantic retreat.
Keep on reading to discover some of the most beautiful and serene adult only resorts in Bali.
The Best Of Bali’s Adult-Only Hotels
Get ready for some serious luxury and peaceful lounging at these adult only resorts in Bali. They are a dream come true!
The Royal Purnama is one of the top adult only resorts in Bali, in an incredibly beautiful location on the east coast of the island.
There are plenty of ways to unwind during a retreat including days pampering yourself with spa treatments and therapies, lounging by the pool, and sampling some superb food from the restaurant. You could even get involved in a recreational activity to two like a morning yoga class, cooking demonstration or horseback riding outing.
Opt for a suite or villa for the ultimate lavish and relaxing stay. The suites at the Royal Purnama feature hot tubs and private terraces, and are furnished with an air of classic Balinese style.
The villas are feature one, two, or four bedrooms, each with a hot tub or private pool in the most gorgeous surroundings!
For a lavish holiday with your partner or special honeymoon, The Royal Purnama is an ideal setting.
Now, we’re heading to the idyllic Balinese paradise of Sidemen, where you’ll find the heavenly Samanyava Resort and Spa that has to be seen to be believed.
With just 17 rooms and a strict over-14s policy, Samanyava has plenty of facilities available for its guests to relish on their grown-ups-only vacation. Whether soaking beside the infinity pool and Jacuzzi is your style, or you prefer to keep active with a yoga class or two, you’ll be looked after throughout your visit.
Six different villa styles are available, and it’s impossible to say which is the most stunning of them all. Think steel grey bathrooms with copper tubs, thatched roofs, four-poster beds and dramatic views.
If you’re feeling loved up, spend a night in the ever-so-romantic honeymoon suite designed for ultimate romance and passion.
A list of the best adult only resorts in Bali wouldn’t be complete without Ubud’s famous resort: Kayon Jungle Resort.
Nestled in the lush green jungles that have become synonymous with Bali, Kayon Jungle Resort is situated just under 30 minutes from the centre of Ubud. It’s far away enough to disconnect from the hustle and bustle entirely, but close enough to make exploring easy.
Showcasing tiered infinity pools, a full-service spa, an on-site museum and a fully equipped gym, you’ll have everything you need for an unforgettable stay.
Dinner at the Canyon Jetty Restaurant is a must while you’re there. I found myself eating there almost every day, the dishes are to die for!
Spend your stay in one of their magnificent suites, complete with balconies, a Jacuzzi bathtub and a double vanity. For an even more lavish experience, upgrade to a villa where you’ll be treated to a private pool and hot tub on your very own terrace.
Moving down towards southern Bali, The Asa Maia is a high-end resort in the surfer’s paradise of Uluwatu, bringing a touch of Javanese culture to the island.
A stay at the Asa Maia will have you feeling like you’re tucked away in a hidden jungle paradise, thanks to its imposing trees, winding pathways, and wooden architecture. With only ten guest rooms, this resort feels more like a cosy, boutique hotel with a different vibe from many of the larger spots you’ll find throughout Bali.
For a relatively small hotel, The Asa Maia packs a big punch in terms of its amenities and facilities. Their restaurant specialises in organic, gut-friendly and nutrient-packed dishes ethically sourced from local producers.
In keeping with all things health and wellness, you can join in yoga, breathwork, hypnotherapy and even physiotherapy classes!
Brave the hot and ice pools, try your hand at contrast therapy, or kick back with a good book in the hotel library after sweating it out in the infrared sauna. This adult only resort in Bali is more of a health retreat than holiday escape, and a stunning place to stay in Uluwatu.
Studio L sits along the coast of the small town of Lovina, a spot that is much less visited as it sits far in the north of the island – known for its dolphin watching.
I love the stylish setup at Studio L. From the pool with submerged sun beds to the clean, sleek finishes in each room, it keeps things classic and simple without compromising on quality.
With just five suites, you can enjoy plenty of privacy and a peaceful ambience without worrying about little ones splashing in the pool and intruding on your much-needed downtime.
The rooms are spotlessly clean apartment-style suites spread out over two storeys. Each of them allow you plenty of space for a relaxing getaway.
Downstairs, you’ll find a private dining and lounge area, while the bedroom and bathroom are both on the upper floor. Not to forget all of the classic amenities for maximum comfort, such as premium complimentary toiletries, a modern kitchenette and a safety deposit box.
ONAYA Ulutwatu is a hidden gem. It is a small, charming resort that has all the features of a high-end hotel but is totally chilled-out and calm.
You can really switch off and forget about hearing the sounds of screaming kids in the background.
With three different types of villa styles, you can take your pick from pool or garden views. All of the rooms have a spacious terrace, an extra large king-size bed and an open shower in a fabulous stone-walled contemporary bathroom.
If you are seeking beach days and lazy sun soaking, ONAYA is a stunning place to stay in Ulu.
BoHo is different from other hotels in Canggu. Set on a hillside overlooking luscious tropical island views, it is a beautiful spot where you an disconnect and forget about the hustle and bustle without being too far away.
The bohemian decor looks like it has come right from a rustic countryside chateau.
Each unique room feels cosy and elegant, with antique wooden furniture and vintage accessories. Spend your days around one of the hotel’s two pools overlooking the rice paddies, or take advantage of the surfing lessons and hit the waves with your pals.
For a more central stay, BoHo is an ideal spot!
Bali is a haven for those looking for an escape from the stresses of busy schedules, the commotion of everyday life, and kids!
There is a growing collection of adult only resorts in Bali, making it increasingly easier to find a serene and peaceful spot to relax. For solo adventurers, couples and groups of friends, these adult only spots are perfect for having a getaway with the ones you love, without the kids 😉
