What is the best area/resort to stay in Bali for a four day weekend with my fiancé? We would like to be near the beach if possible.
We stayed at AYANA Resort and Spa and it was absolutely amazing - best resort I have ever stayed at. Beautiful, relaxing, great food, best sunsets on Bali.
It really depends what style of holiday you want .
Jimbaran has less to do in the immediate surrounds, but has some beautiful resorts like AYANA Resort and Spa RIMBA Jimbaran Bali InterContinental Bali Resort . I find the beaches here and near here to be nicer then Seminyak area. You can also spend the day at a beach club like Finn's Beach Club .
Uluwatu is more remote but has stunning clifftop resorts like Alila Villas Uluwatu .
And as mentioned, Nusa Dua is also another option. Here there is a little less to do, but you can get to Seminyak and Jimbaran for dinner/day trips. We loved our stay at Hotel Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort .
Hope this helps and have an amazing time in Bali :)
Mentioned in this answer:
I really recommend The Mulia Resort at Nusa Dua Beach , Bali. It's the quieter part of the island and less touristy, but you can still come down to Seminyak for shopping and dining in a reasonable amount of time. Stayed here before, such a beautiful place and service is superb.
I recommend the Gili Islands but you have to go to the other side of the island and take an hour boat ride there you would need more than four days. . Don't remember the hotel we stayed at unfortunately but I stayed in Seminyak at the end of my trip and it was right on the beach beautiful sunsets.
Hi Alyce the best resort may I recommend you to reach is Double-Six Luxury Hotel
