Hotels in Bali
A tropical island paradise, Bali is a unique blend of spirituality and culture, laidback nightlife and verdant rice terraces, offset by amazing beaches. Holidays to Bali are the ultimate in luxury, and exceptional hospitality and breathtaking natural beauty are a standard of island life.
Whether you're a dedicated beach-bum or action-packed explorer, you can spend your holidays in Bali how you please. Take your pick from the wide range of activities on offer - go scuba diving in a crystal-clear lagoon on the south of the island, or catch a wave on the surfer's paradise of Kuta Beach. Jeep safaris and white-water rafting are also an option for thrill-seekers, and a holiday in Bali would not be complete without a guided island tour, for a fascinating insight into the island's rich culture and heritage.
Holidays in Bali were made for lazy days on the beach, but once you've topped up your tan, head to the dramatic rock outcrop in the sea where the Tanah Lot Temple is perched and watch the spectacular sunsets. The Balinese are famed for their hospitality, and no holiday to Bali would be complete without an evening in one of Seminyak's beachfront lounge bars. Can't face heading home after an indulgent break? Then bring your holiday to Bali back with you and stock up on souvenirs at the bohemian bolt-hole Ubud, with a tempting selection of batik paintings, vibrant silks and wood-carvings.
There is a fantastic selection of Bali hotels to choose from for a wonderful holiday in a tropical paradise.
