Bali Villa Suggestions & Beach Recs?

Jump to last reply

My aunt and I are traveling to Bali (June 22-July 2) - yippee! I have done some research here, as I always do before asking, but I haven't come up with any definitive AND recent recommendations.

We are planning on spending the majority of our time in Ubud, but would like to spend a day or two at the beach. So I thought we could either 1) start at the beach for a night or two, probably in the south since we'll be flying into Denpasar, or 2) head straight to Ubud and do an overnight beach trip somewhere in the middle of our stay.

I would love to hear any specific recommendations for villas (or quiet hotels) in the Ubud area, and also recommendations for a less-touristy but still swimmable beach. We're not too interested in the "international tourism" scene of the big resort areas.

My understanding is that as long as we're within a short drive of the town of Ubud, we are close enough to soak up the cultural scene - is that correct?

Thanks in advance!
