If you’re worried about it being too noisy, fear not, this list features a wide range of hotels, from buzzing party ones to serene hidden ones!

Be surrounded by street food and local flair: Fairfield by Marriott Bali Kuta Sunset Road

An environmentally friendly endeavour, Fairfield by Marriott Bali Kuta is an answer to those green buffs who also enjoy convenience, and a little bit of luxury! A blend of modern architecture and Bali’s natural charisma lead to a stylish facade that entices and welcomes you from the moment you step into the spacious and tropical lobby.

In an effort to join the eco-friendly movement, Fairfield by Marriott provides guests with bamboo toothbrushes, biodegradable and botanical bath products, and various spots to refill your water bottle alongside many other initiatives! How fantastic is that? You no longer need to sacrifice the comforts of a typical hotel experience in order to travel better for the environment!

Now, if you ask me, the swim-up pool bar could well be the star of the entire hotel, where you can enjoy thirst quenching juices and refreshing cocktails while basking in the sun. Kuta beach is only a short 10 minute drive away and you can frolic in the sand to your heart’s content. When you’re all tired, head back up to your incredibly comfortable room for a mid-afternoon siesta before heading out to dinner in the bustling streets of Kuta, just outside.

When it comes to food, there’s no doubt that you’ll feel conflicted over what to choose. Not only is this hotel surrounded by both halal and non-halal street food eateries, there are two impressive restaurants in the hotel itself!

Jejaton is their environmentally conscious restaurant that focuses on traditional Indonesian food. Highlights include the Indonesian style oxtail soup! For those looking for street food within the comforts of the hotel, look no further than Jaba Lounge, a dog-friendly space where you can indulge on Martabak (Deep fried mixed vegetable and chicken, wrap with homemade dough, cucumber pickle and sweet sour sauce)!

And for all the digital nomads out there who love a good party but also need to get some work done during the day, Catur Sanak Co–working Space is the solution you need – you’ll get complimentary drinks and snacks – or even better, a special discount on the food and beverages at the hotel! Make sure to take a few breaks and use their pool or gym so you can truly experience Bali’s digital nomad lifestyle!
