9 beachfront surf villas in Bali under $100 where you can surf right at your doorstep

You don’t have to splurge to enjoy a luxurious holiday in Bali – we’ve found 12 amazing beachfront stays you can get for less than USD$80 a night.

Here’s to waking up to the sight of fishermen setting off with their boats (or returning with their catch if you’re sleeping in) and falling asleep to the sound of the sea.

Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.

1. Enjoy the rooftop infinity pool, and beach massages! – Citadines Kuta Beach Bali Aparthotel (From US$60 per night)

Located right infront of Kuta Beach, Citadines Kuta is the best place for those who love a spot of tanning. Enjoy an afternoon of tanning by the beach as you wait for yet another famous Bali sunset – with a beer (or two) in hand.

If you’re looking to get a massage on the beach, you’ll also be happy to know that good massages are available here (and at very affordable prices too), thanks to the ladies offering massage services on the beach!

Love to eat? Staying at Citadines can only mean that you’re in the right place to try the variety of food in this Kuta area. There are cafes around for you to easily pop into, and delectable street food such as meatballs, roasted corn, or salad.

Citadines is also suitable for those planning for a longer in Bali, thanks to the in-room kitchenettes available. Feel free to cook whenever you’re getting a little tired of eating out – though we highly doubt you’ll tire of the delicious grub available.

Lastly, another fantastic feature of the hotel you won’t want to miss? The lovely rooftop infinity pool. Imagine relaxing at the pool while enjoying the scrumptious views.
