Hotels, hostels, resorts, guesthouses, private rooms, private villas – oh my!
Bali is jam-packed with every type of accommodation you can think of.
As a self-confessed bougie traveler, private villas in Bali are my go-to. With such a vast variety, some affordable prices and amazing amenities, who wouldn’t want to relax in style?
Depending on your preferred location and size, the possibilities are endless. From cliffside to jungle-view, secluded to town centre, the island has something for everyone – and they don’t need to break the bank.
