Hidden in the south-western tip of Bali, Uluwatu sure makes a great option for day trips. Perhaps you’ll be heading there to enjoy the majestic Kecak Dance, uncover exotic hidden beaches, bask in glorious clifftop views and enjoy the best beach clubs, and although day trips sound exciting, we’d simply recommend you to opt for a stay in Uluwatu to make the best out of it! I mean, who’d say no to waking up to endless ocean views?!

Of course, if we were to hold on to stereotypes, Uluwatu would be deemed as a destination for weddings, luxury seekers, and celebrities, but if you open your eyes wide (like us), you’d be in seventh heaven! The dreamy coastal town has a collection of stunning budget accommodations too!

If you’re unsure about where to stay on your next trip, check out our ultimate guide to the best places to stay in Bali.

Note: The prices reflected below are 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.

Resorts are grandiose and flashy, whereas boutique hotels are a different kind of luxury – they’re special, if you ask us! Slightly less packed, a little more hidden, and where service is much more personal, boutique hotels are a truly intimate way of discovering a location.

The Elementum is no different, with only eight rooms available, they preach small luxuries. You’ll likely feel like you have the entire place to yourself! With an industrially chic design, as they put it, the modern vibe of this place will have you slowly unwinding with each day of your stay! Days here are best spent in their cool wavy pool and thanks to their kitchen being open for all meals and a lovely rooftop lounge to have your sunset cocktails in!

25. Choose where to catch waves today – Kima Surf

Kima Surf is located around Bali’s best surfing spots, so you get to choose where you stay and where you think would be ideal for you to catch your first (or fifth) wave.

But if you were to ask us, people simply love their Canggu Camp and it is not hard to see why – learning how to surf at Canggu Beach is very enjoyable!

From gentle rollers for beginners to beach breaks for the pros, there’s a variety of waves for everyone!

Kima Surf offers both surfing lessons and accommodation, which by the way is completed by a large natural stone pool, surrounded by a tropical garden – the perfect scene for your post-surfing snooze!

With surf lessons tailored to each level of experience, you don’t need to worry about getting to the best waves. After your session, your Kima instructor will give post-breakfast briefings and post-session video feedback, analysing any bad habits and potential improvements.

At the end of your stay with Kima Surf, you will be sure that surfing is addictive and you are bound to get other inexplicable sensations for it – the ones that will keep you coming back for. 😉
