The pure heavenly pleasure of soaking in the running jacuzzi jets in the privacy of your villa/hotel and the glorious surroundings of Bali is an almost indescribable feeling. Nothing says divine luxury like a jacuzzi bathtub does – and to top it with a breathtaking atmospheric view of Bali? Now that is some serious holiday business.
The thrill of having a jetted tub in your holiday stay can be a real extra added value, especially if you and your loved ones are looking to relax and romance in style.
Taking a cool morning dip before you head out to a hot adventurous day in Bali will get you to a fresh start – while returning to the comfort of a personal masseuse in the form of hot and fragrant jacuzzi bath can be the most ideal way to end a day’s fun, before you tuck in for the night.
So, light some candles, untangle all your knots, let love fill the air, and get a taste of sublime relaxation in these romantic villas and hotels with fabulous bathtubs & jacuzzis in Bali.
Editor’s Note: We all love a little indulgence, but please be conscious of the water usage when you soak in your bathtubs and jacuzzis. Rivers and reservoirs are drying up in Bali and farmers might not have enough water for irrigation. Let’s all do our part to reduce the crisis!
Note: Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.

Great for couples who’re longing to truly get away, Morabito Art Cliff indulges your senses in every way.
And just so you know, they also have accommodation that transports you to Marseille (France), and more!

We bet Tarzan and Jane wished they had it this good while deep in the jungle! Ubud is known for its awe-inspiring scenery and changeable climate.
So this luxury resort has a 89-metre-long heated infinity pool, where you can warm yourselves up while marveling at the stunning valley views.

And after an adventurous day of exploring, what can be better than another hot bath?
Sinking into the jacuzzi of the One Bedroom Suite with evermore spectacular views was the most luxurious feeling I ever had – it was even better as I shared it with my boyfriend!

And as if things were not sensual enough, Padma Resort Ubud also offers a special Soak & Soothe Package, during which you get to feel like a real prince and princess! If you can’t be bothered to draw your own bath, a personal team on hand will do all the hard work for you.
As sexy as it may sound, we were in for a soothing warm bath covered with rose petals and bath salt, together with a memorable Balinese massage at The Spa and chocolate-coated strawberries to feed each other along with a choice of sparkling wine or champagne. Cheers!

Everywhere you look at Padma Resort Ubud, you will be confronted with spectacular scenery; our favourite was the one enjoyed at The Club Lounge during the high tea session – I would deem this as the resort’s vantage point; a show-stopper of a view, I tell you!

P.S. When you tire of your room, you can enjoy the outdoor jacuzzi next to the infinity pool – a complimentary 40-degree-Celcius soother!
3. Discover a hidden paradise in East Bali – Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Resort
Nestled on the pristine shoreline of East Bali, Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Resort offers a rare slice of unspoiled Bali in a serene location that seems to be light years away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta.

In addition to the sumptuous views, Wyndham Tamansari Jivva Resort’s Jacuzzi Ocean View Suite offers a sleek modern decor and the perfect backdrop for those envy-inducing holiday snaps.
After a relaxing soak out on the balcony, head downstairs and grab a rainbow-hued beanbag chair out on the lawn and witness a majestic Bali sunset with a cold drink in hand.
4. Unwind on the beach as the palm trees sway in the breeze – Candi Beach Resort and Spa
Tucked into the lush shade of a coconut grove in eastern Bali, Candi Beach Resort and Spa might just be the dictionary definition of luxe modern bohemia.
Next to the majestic palm trees, the resort sits right on the beach, inevitably placing guests in a tough dilemma – do you want to splash around in the ocean or luxuriate in the resort’s pristine blue pool instead?
The resort’s Luxury Ocean View Suite offers just what the name suggests – a design dripping with luxury and sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, visible right from your very own balcony.
And it doesn’t exactly hurt that the balcony just happens to house a massive jacuzzi tub and a romantic daybed, now does it?
Making the most of its beachfront location, Candi Beach Resort and Spa also offers scenic dining venues, regardless of whether you’re tucking into a lavish breakfast spread or cozying up to a romantic dinner at sunset.
If a dip in your own private jacuzzi isn’t enough to soothe your senses, why not pay a visit to the resort’s luxe spa where you can indulge in a decadent flower petal bath with a side of epic blue vistas of the ocean?

14. Enjoy the scenic beauty of East Bali – Villa Campuhan
Tucked away in East Bali, where some might argue where the beauty of Bali is still at its purest and most harmonious, lies the unparalleled secluded beauty – Villa Campuhan.
It is not a difficult thing for anyone to immediately fall in love with this place.
Villa Campuhan boasts of gorgeously dramatic views where you get to see Mount Agung and Seraya, the vast East of the Pacific Ocean, and combines these into one beautifully serene landscape.

With 5 villas to choose from, each comes with its own unique features and stories. Yet one thing remains similar, the extraordinary bathtub experience.
Take Villa Agung for example, this deluxe villa holds a 2-person sized square bathtub under a private canopy on hand-hewn teak floors with large glass windows overlooking the scenic view of the villa.
At Villa Campuhan, you can easily cross off “experience heaven on earth” off your bucket list – because you are finally there.
15. An authentically Balinese dream space – Jendela Di Bali
The interesting thing about Jendela di Bali, is that it’s a villa that is also “A Village of Unique Living Spaces”.
This extraordinary villa offers an authentic Balinese living experience with its spacious garden, private pool and several Bales (lounge in local tongue) that are traditionally furnished with artful handcrafted interiors.
There are separate Bales with different functions, such as The Bale Bengong that makes up the living/dining area, Wayang Kulit Bale which is a media & meditation space, and two other Bales that make up the bedrooms, namely The Kingfisher and The White Elephant.
(One thing to note, whether you book 1 bedroom or 2, you’ll still get the entire villa to yourself. How cool is that?!)
Depending on your preferences, choose between The Kingfisher or White Elephant (personally, we prefer The White Elephant!).
“This is a dream space like no other. On moonlit nights there is nothing more evocative than lying in the elegantly-dressed king bed looking out the stunning glass wall to the moon as it hovers languidly behind the jungle and towering palms. Fireflies dance before your eyes and at temple ceremony times the sound of Gamelan orchestras will enchant.”
In addition, the bedrooms come along with its very own relaxing and comfortable jacuzzi, and the patio and swimming pool is set along nicely with fountains, flowers, and vibrant bird life.
16. A modern bath in tropical paradise – Kamandalu Ubud

17. Be one with nature and see the fireflies! – Bambu Indah

18. Soak in copper bathtubs to heavenly views in a bamboo haven – Green Village Bali
This truly one-of-a-kind “bamboo house” is a favorite in many international websites for top accommodation in Bali, and it’s not hard to see why. The Green Village Bali is an incredible bamboo community set along the lush jungle landscape above the sacred Ayung river that will leave anyone in awe.
The principle design utilities bamboo for practically everything in sight. The results are not only admirably grand, but also creates a sustainable living concept – large decorative houses with distinctive spiraling bamboo canopies and fully furnished bamboo interiors.

The amazing craftsmanship in Green Village also extends to the marvelous furniture, such as hanging cocoon lounge chairs, bamboo pods in the lounging area, and artistic bamboo stairways.
The most important detail? The modest-looking but fully functioning open-air copper bathtubs where you soak to the most incredible jungle views.
