Bali knows no shortage of spectacular views. While the island might be relatively small, it is home to some of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders: volcanoes, waterfalls, mountaintops, rainforests, paddy fields – you name it… One thing is for sure – you’re bound to have your breath taken away by what’s in front of you.

But what really sets Bali apart from the rest of the world is the possibility of waking up to incredible vistas, right from your hotel or villa. Boasting some of the best locations on the island, many of these places even let you take in the views from the comfort of your bed!

Below, we’ve collected some of the best places to stay in Bali with incomparable views. From Ubud’s mystical rainforest, to Uluwatu’s dazzling waters, passing by some of the island’s most remote locations, there’s something for everyone… Which one will you choose?

Privacy, sustainability and spectacular views, all at MĀUA Nusa Penida

Few can resist the allure of the Nusa Islands, particularly Nusa Penida. Located a short 30-minute boat ride from mainland Bali, the island has all the ingredients of a wholesome tropical getaway: stunning beaches, countless natural wonders and breathtaking views.

For now, Nusa Penida remains relatively undeveloped and you will find only a limited number of hotels here – but potentially none more scenic and romantic than MĀUA Nusa Penida, where you can stay in one of their 25 stunning private pool villas. From here, enjoy prime views across Gamat Bay or Mount Agung.

When you have the energy to draw yourself away from your villa, don’t miss their casual dining venue, KŌWHAI Restaurant, which features a ‘Fresh from the Farm’ menu concept while overlooking a picturesque hill and pool.

Perks for guests include a main swimming pool, an incredibly beautiful spa, as well as their excellent Aroha Bar.

At the hotel, environmental sustainability is an everyday priority. Each of the property’s eco-roofed villas double as a habitat for birds and other small species. State-of-the-art technologies make these same eco-roofs act as sequesters of carbon dioxide and other pollutants while purifying the air and producing oxygen.

With its greywater recycling programme and strict no-plastic policy, you can be sure MĀUA brings a Bali experience that is sustainably luxurious – as they shower love to the island that gives life to the natural beauty all around.

1. Wake up among the mountains – Oculus Bali

Bali is undoubtedly the best-known island of Indonesia, but you can still get off the beaten track and away from the crowds – as long as you know where to look. The region of Kintamani in particular, has long been a popular gateway for those visiting the iconic Mount Batur.

The area is full of natural reserves and the cool temperatures make it ideal for a quick respite from the usual heat and humidity of South Bali. It’s also not as well developed as the south, so you can step right into the local lifestyle.

Kintamani is also still very dependent on farming. Like a voyage through time, you’ll notice there are still a lot of farmers working in the fields and because they use mostly organic fertilizers, there seems to be quite a number of flies in the region. But maybe, that’s also something that makes up the authentic charm of Kintamani…

Beyond its natural delights, Kintamani has recently seen several hotels, restaurants and cafes popping up, making it a great place to spend a night or two.

And this year (2022) is a great one because Kintamani hosted the opening of the incredible Oculus hotel. With a total of 10 suites, an infinity hot pool, a spa along with 3 restaurants, this stay sets a new benchmark for the region.

2. Front-row seats guaranteed! – Ayodya Batur Villa

Undoubtedly, the focal point at this property is the fact that it sits right in front of Bali’s one and only Mount Batur – an active volcano that’s also believed to be sacred. The majestic Batur caldera is a UNESCO Global Geopark Heritage and basking in its views from your stay is an indescribable feeling!

Photo Via TripCanvas

The villa boasts three different types of rooms. Each villa is different in appearance and amenities, but one of the few essential commonalities they share is the unparalleled volcano view. For couples, you may want to consider the Ayodya Suite Room which is equipped with a bathtub and private terrace.

The villa may be in a remote area of Bali but it features its very own restaurant so you don’t have to worry about stepping out for food. The varied menu offers everything from Western dishes like burgers, spaghetti, pancakes and sandwiches to local Indonesian meals like the iconic Nasi Goreng (fried rice).

3. You’d forget you’re in Bali – Hideaway Glamping

Set at the foot of Mount Batur, Hideaway Glamping has got views that are literally worth traveling for. There are only three tents on the property so you’ll have to be lucky to score the best one in the house…

Whether you check into the Mandala or Madya tent, the sweeping views of the lake and mountain on the horizon will have you question your current location – so much so that you’d even forget you’re in Bali.

There is also the dreamy Mediterrani tent from which you can enjoy Kintamani’s greenery and still have access to the pool. Each tent is equipped with its very own bathroom and all other necessities to ensure your comfort. They also come with an air cooler just in case it gets too warm – not that you really have to worry as it is usually chilly in the Kintamani region.

4. Like in Switzerland – Lake Garden Bali

There can be few views as the ones offered at Lake Garden Bali. Sitting right on the shores of Lake Batur, the stay offers exclusive access to one of Bali’s most breathtaking landscapes. It’s a view guests get to enjoy from every corner of the property – the rooms, terrace, hot tub and infinity pool.

The area is remarkably peaceful and quiet. There are no restaurants or shops in the surroundings so we’d recommend you come prepared with snacks, although the hotel does offer room service and there is also the possibility of setting up a barbeque.

There’s also only 7 cylindrical rooms, so it’s really just you and a few others enjoying the amazing feeling of remoteness along with some of the most enchanting views. There’s so much to look out for that you might not want to go to bed at all. Not that it gets any less magical at night, as chances are you’re in for a stargazing treat!

I hate to say it friends, but it’s not enough to simply go somewhere unexceptionally ‘nice’ anymore. Oh no. Instagram went and ruined that for all of us. Now, if we’re going to go on holiday in Bali, it feels like we’re obliged to visit somewhere super cool, somewhere with endless ocean views from your bed and complemented with interiors that are inspired by Pinterest maybe? Somewhere called Le Cliff, for sure.

8. Bali’s real showstopper – Blue Ocean Bingin

Blue Ocean Bingin has a privileged location on the coastal front of Bali.

The exclusive hideout features a limited number of rooms – 7 to be precise, all of which offer incredible ocean views. Not that you’ll ever have to step out too far to enjoy them, all you’ll have to do is open your eyes to bask in all kinds of shades of blue right from the comfort of your bed.

Each room is different from the other in terms of amenities. We’ve got a crush on the minimalist loft in particular, which comes as deeply photogenic and of course the undeniable truth is that it makes for some great Instagram photos!

Photo Via _nataliemaree

Right below the property, you’ll find Bingin Beach – one of Bali’s most popular surf spots, lined up with a plethora of cafes, restaurants and other cool places to hangout at. The area is also known for some of the best seafood barbeques so don’t miss out on a sea-to-table dinner at sunset!

Note that you will be required to climb up and down a set of stairs to have access to the property. While not necessary (if you ask us), we also feel obliged to let you know that you will find no TV inside your room – but with a view like this one, who really needs any other form of entertainment?

10. Bali’s bamboo castle in the sky – Laputa Villa

You can be sure to experience the natural beauty of the great outdoors – whether it’s from your hanging net or the open-plan terrace.

After a hard day’s exploring, you could even request for a full body massage right at your villa or get them to set up a romantic dinner!

It’s important to note that there is no air conditioning at the villa – not that you’ll ever need it as this region of Bali is known for its year-round cool temperatures.

Upon arrival, guests are offered a pocket Wi-Fi but due to the remote location, the internet connection from here is not always strong.
