What makes Bali’s luxury beach resorts so alluring? Is it the impeccable service, the world-class architectural design, or the elegant rooms with beds fit for royalty and fancy pants bathroom amenities?

Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy bathrobes are aemll rather wonderful, but it’s an eye-poppingly amazing pool that really lets you know you’re in high-priced paradise.

If you wouldn’t mind kicking back celebrity style in an extravagant 5 star resort pool, but don’t have the budget or the burning desire to actually stay in such exclusive digs – well, you’re in luck.

19. A Balinese village with all the aspects of a 5-star resort – Belmond Jimbaran Puri

Located in the Jimbaran area with white sandy beaches and clear sea water, Belmond Jimbaran Puri is likened to a Balinese village, though a tad more luxurious.

Cottages shaped like traditional houses with thatched roofs add to the impression of a village, even though the facilities inside are equivalent or above the average of a five-star hotel! You’ll be able to experience Bali life whilst also having a tranquil visit.

The main swimming pool is just as unique, it’s made using natural stones and is surrounded by canopies, and a few “huts” on the beach. Yes, from the swimming pool to the beach is just a few steps! Don’t forget to take a load off in one of the hammocks, and let the cool sea breeze rock you to sleep.
