If you don’t feel like getting adventurous, relax and enjoy a peaceful stroll amidst the rice fields, lay on your hammock and appreciate the fantastic view, sign up for a yoga or cooking class – your holiday, your choice!2. Awaken in Jungle Paradise with mountain view – Angsana Saranam Wellbeing Resort (Now closed)
From every room at the Angsana Saranam Wellbeing Resort, you can wake up every morning to mesmerizing views of rice paddies and surrounding mountains.
As each room is equipped with its own balcony, the first thing you’ll see are lush, emerald-hued hillsides spreading out far and wide. These delectable mountain view rooms offer a classical touch of elegance, with a luxurious feel and rich colour schemes.
Located in mid-northern Bali, this stunning location provides cooler and more refreshing temperatures than the south. The hotel is nestled on a steep hillside, with a funicular to take guests up and down the incline.
If you’re feeling peckish, L’Altitude Restaurant provides sweet treats at their afternoon tea setup. You can also try Café Toya’s succulent selection of tapas, snacks, fresh juices, and special wellness diets.
Daily activities are not in short supply – Saranam Resort and Spa is located less than than 10km away from unforgettable adventures such as the Bali Treetop Adventure and Ulun Danu Bratan Temple!
TripCanvas Tip: This hotel is currently undergoing major revamp, so some parts of the property might still be under construction. Please contact the hotel to check before you book to ensure that your room is far from the construction.
3. Your very own slice of Santorini in Bali – Morabito Art Cliff (From USD $420)
The latest find we’re obsessing over, Morabito Art Cliff is here with their very own version of Santorini.

Great for couples who’re longing to truly get away, Morabito Art Cliff indulges your senses in every way.

4. You’ll love meditating here!: Bella Kita Mountain Retreat & Spa
Bella Kita Mountain Retreat & Spa is your getaway to one of the most beautiful mountain scenery in Bali. The resort is the ideal place to escape the stress of the modern world. It is as though you are stepping back to Bali 20 years ago. Checking in here means you sign up for jaw-dropping views of the surrounding mountains and lush forests.

As it is set in practically untouched scenery, you will feel as though you have walked right into a fairytale that’s in perfect harmony with nature. On the interior of your villa, you’ll find antique furnishings, natural elements and original artworks from a local Balinese artist, along with magnificent vistas of endless forests from the hillside.
What really is the spectacle at Bella Kita Mountain Retreat & Spa is its expansive infinity pool that is beautifully adorned with a giant 4-metre-tall stone Buddha statue. Take a dip and enjoy the vast forest lying before you, outlined by the ocean and Lembongan Island resting in the background.

And where best to rejuvenate than in nature? Enjoy the resort’s yoga hut and book yourself a series of soothing body treatments at the spa – both experiences are nothing short of magical.
The venue also features a restaurant – The Monkey Bar at Bella Kita offers all-day dining, homemade snacks, traditional Balinese dishes, as well as plenty of healthy eating options. Their healthy homemade dishes are all made with love using local seasonal produce, including some freshly picked ingredients from their organic farm next to the restaurant.

5. Get majestic sea views from your bed – Le Cliff
The view from the bed, you guys. THE VIEW FROM THE BED! Can you imagine waking up to anything more beautiful (and in Bali, for that matter)?
Located in Uluwatu, you’ll find this hidden gem overlooking the beautiful ocean. A charming place for a romantic getaway or one with the girls, you decide, but did we mention the view from the bed?

If its sibling Le Bamboo invites you for an exciting jungle retreat, Le Cliff, offers an intimate relationship with the dazzling Indian Ocean. This beautiful accommodation in Uluwatu offers a unique space with creative and stunning interiors that rival other boutique hotels in the area.

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.
Cheeky groups of monkeys are often spotted in the area so make sure you close your balcony door whenever you head out!
6. Choose from endless activities: Sthala, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Ubud
We’d completely understand if you opted to stay in this hotel forever. After all, they have almost everything here! If surrounding yourself in lust tropical greenery while lounging in an infinity pool sounds like your kind of trip, this hotel is definitely the one for you.

Daytime activities are in no short supply, so if you want to plan a full day there’s tons to choose from!

7. Plunge into a three-storey infinity pool!: The Kayon Jungle Resort
What would be your definition of a top resort? Because this one right here even features its own jungle pool club and bar!
During peak seasons, it is almost impossible to secure a room at The Kayon Jungle Resort but there are obvious reasons for that. The resort is simply spectacular. It is not difficult to see why it is so popular on social media either – look at this stunning view across the valley and their fabulous main pool that is tiered over three levels, presumably mimicking the rice terraces for which Ubud is famous for.
Photo Via Daleydavis, Thelosttwo
Photo Via X_tyna, Stef_fi_3, Nabdic
The property takes full advantage of the natural abundance and the best part yet is that it is an adults-only resort (no kids allowed!) so you can peacefully take in all of the jungle sounds!
The surroundings are on par with some of the bigger chain hotels over on the Sayan Ridge. The only thing is that the resort is pretty far from the main tourist attractions. However, they do provide a complimentary shuttle to take you to Ubud Central, which makes it very convenient if you are planning to explore!
Photo Via Nvtalja
To say the least, the resort was deemed as “easily the best part of an entire trip to Bali” by several guests! We’ve also heard that there’s nothing the team at The Kayon can’t solve. Replace the coke in your minibar with coke light? Consider it done! Prefer croissant to toast? Also possible!

8. Book yourself a villa with views and history!: Taman Bebek
As far as views go, it doesn’t get much better than Taman Bebek and its beautiful villas that are rich in history!
To get a glimpse of it, we first need to go back to the 1930s when renowned artists and scholars such as Walter Spies, Colin McPhee, Betty Waterson and others used to find inspiration right at the villas!
After several decades, the villas were abandoned with no specific reason. But later on, in 1980 a smart landscape artist and writer Made Wijaya acquired the land. Though the properties had worn out completely with time, the serenity and scenery of the location didn’t fail to leave him speechless.
Photo Via Karsudonmez
Fast forward to modern day, under the direction of Wijaya, the area has been renamed as “Taman Bebek”. This is where you’ll find six large one-bedroom villas and two classic rooms that come with complimentary views of the lush forest.
Take time to slowly enjoy the peacefulness at the villa. By the time you stand on the edge of their infinity pool and gaze at the vast green panorama outlined by a majestic mountain backdrop, you’ll get an idea as to why artists and scholars used to be so obsessed with this place.

9. Overhanging views of the rice terrace valley – Samanvaya Villa
Want to experience Bali life as much as you can? Stay at Samanvaya Villa. The hotel is strategically located only 35km (1 hour) from the center of Ubud, providing easy access to all the facilities that you need in the city. With its strategic location, this hotel makes it easy to explore all the tourist spots in the city.
But of course, the most stunning feature is their infinity pool with endless views of magical and mystical Ubud. Gorgeously hanging over a valley of sloping rice terraces, the views here are not to be scoffed at. To top off the experience, enjoy your days at the pool with a delicious drink or two from the bar!
The swimming pool will make you feel at home for hours – and you can also enjoy a massage at their spa. If you’re a yoga-lover, why not join a yoga session at Samanvaya? Yoga at the in-house studio with those verdant views of the valley is a dream come true!

10. Swing out to the rice paddies: Zen Hideaway
In a traditional Balinese village, about 20 minutes from the centre of Ubud, lies a secret Zen Hideaway.
And here’s the highlight of this tucked-away paradise – you can swing out to the monumental rainforest view from the coconut trees! As far as the eye can see, you can take in the Ayung river, the valley, a huge waterfall, rice paddies and the majestic Mount Agung – all in front of you.

Both thrilling and addictive, this may be one of the ultimate swing rides of your life.

The rooms are of semi-open concept, so you can have a hearty dose of fresh Ubud countryside air.
Photo Via Doyoutravel
From the house, you can walk along a small trail to the river or waterfall for a relaxing swim. Or you can simply laze the day away and read your favourite book in a hammock!
And since this is in a local village, you can interact with the locals if you’d like to experience the authentic daily activities, such as farming, dancing or traditional ceremonies (if available while you’re here).

Ever slept in a luxurious tent in a rainforest? If you are keen for something off-the-beaten-path, give Sang Giri Mountain Tent Resort a try.
Nestled in the mountains of Jatiluwih, in Tabanan, Sang Giri offers eight deluxe tents where you can watch the sunrise peeking over the jungles’ treetops from your very own private terrace.
If you’re feeling restless and itching for some adventure, why not trek into the rainforest, bird watch, mountain bike along the available trails or explore the nearby terraced paddy fields?
And the best way to unwind after all those activities? Jump into the hot spring bath or soak in the resort’s sauna.
