Ten days in Bali this September: Want to see the entire Island

Jump to last reply

I've been to Bali once before and stayed in the Ubud area just to get a sense of the island but I fell in love with it and always wanted to go back.

Can you suggest a ten day itinerary where I'd be able to see all that Bali has to offer: the lakes and the temples around them, beaches, rice fields and any spots with great natural beauty.

I was only there for two days on my previous visit, so I was able to splurge and stay at the Four Seasons Sayan, which was absolutely stunning.

Though this time around, my budget is roughly $200 a night. I wish I could find a place that has private plunge pools for that rate but I don't think that's possible unless I find a small private villa, which I wouldn't prefer given the fact that I wouldn't have my own car, which makes hotels a much more attractive option in terms of convenience and access to dining options, or even room service if I were exhausted at the end of the day.

Should I stay in one base for the entire duration of the trip or should I stay in two or three different locations? I'm thinking three days in Kuta or Jimbaran bay, then spend the remainder some where more central in the island. Should I stay in Kuta or in Jimbaran for the first part of the trip? I'm not a big fan of nightlife in general but I thought I'd stay in Kuta for a couple of days just to take a few dips in the ocean and to see the urban/cosmopolitan side of Bali before I go into the more intensive cultural experice deep inside Bali.

Any suggestions, even small ones, would be greatly appreciated!!
