There are plenty of Bali beach hotels in Sanur, Legian, Seminyak, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Benoa and also on smaller beaches to the north. On this page though, let’s start where it all started; with the Bali Beach Hotel
Since more than 50 years, Bali has been discovered and developed as an international and much-loved tourist destination. Foreigners who traveled to Indonesia always found Bali a special place, a mystical place. It all started with European artists who came here to find their muse, and, of course, their friends and fans followed suit.
The first international standard hotel was built on Sanur Beach in the South East. Bali Beach Hotel still operates today and is the tallest hotel building in Bali. With its 8 floors, it is deemed an eyesore. Since then the government determined that hotels may not be built taller than 4 stories, or not taller than coconut palm trees. When you fly over or drive along the beaches you will have difficulties identifying the many hotels, they all hide within lush gardens and coconut palm tree coves.
There are definitely plenty of hotel rooms available, and plenty of them are at the beach. In general, those accommodations are considered more pricy. And yet the island is blessed with an abundance of amazingly different target destinations. For sun and water lovers, one of the numerous beautiful beaches is perfect. You can choose between white or black sand; even small and private ones nestled between impressive cliffs. Majestic volcanic craters with lakes surrounded by vegetable gardens and rice fields offer a completely different kind of rest and relaxation. And then there is the unique Balinese culture that gives you an insight into another world; watch tantalizing dances, visit fascinating historical and archaeological sites in the center.

A hidden gem; a luxurious and traditional surf hotel; Tugu Batu Bolong Beach

When it just opened many years ago we stayed at Four Seasons Jimbaran
And then there is Nusa Dua, a complex full of fabulous hotels right on the beach
The Balinese keep believes and traditions very much alive and at the same time have learned, adapted and understand how to cater to international guests. They are open, friendly and genuinely welcome foreigners to their beautiful home.
This holiday destination is truly a gem and many people will come back again and again to enjoy the diversity of Bali beach hotels. Some of the architecture and interior designs are stunning. The services they offer too are legendary. But the ones that really make this island unforgettable are the Balinese together with their unique traditions and celebrations.
