Even if the student is still sleeping in us, it is clear that we are human above all, who sometimes dream of some luxury hotels of crazy people, as we see in movies or Instagram influencers . And if the dream remains inaccessible in 70% of the countries for our budgets of hunters of good plans, in Asia, it is the pa-ra-dis! Here are the most beautiful hotels that we have spotted, a reasonable budget when we go as a couple, 2/3 days with friends, including proposals for honeymooners. Because yes, it is always more fun to have fun in a spa hotel than in a dormitory for 12 people, right?

Cendana Resorts and Spa, Ubud

50$ per person/night. In the heart of the rice fields and yet right in the center of Ubud, this hotel is perfect for discovering the city but also resting with its infinity pool surrounded by nature! The location is really top and the tradi style can give a little local touch to your stay!

Bali hotels- Cendana Resorts and Spa

Tanah Merah, Ubud

Around 45 $. Small nugget that has nothing to envy to luxury hotels (well…), with its swimming pool in the heart of the jungle! Even breakfast is included. Personally, when we were looking for accommodation, all the comments in French complained about the breakfasts of little plentiful hotels in Bali but we always had a great meal so good!

Tanah Merah Hotel Bali Ubud

Villa Kupu Kupu Bingin, Uluwatu

160 $ the villa for 6 people. The perfect spot for a trip with friends with a stylish decor, a swimming pool and open-air bathrooms (you will understand, that, I love it)! Only downside, the spot is a bit lost so we go there especially to re-enter with friends and limit the excursions!

Villa Kupu Kupu Bingin

Tirta Sari Bungalow, Pemuteran

25$ per night approximately. Little crush on this seaside hotel in the peaceful town of Pemuteran where we spent just one night, much to our regret! Unbeatable value for money, between the swimming pool, our little cabin with the open bathroom and above all, a fouuu restaurant (super good, really) and massages offered really cheap and super well done!


Surf Motel, Canggu

Around 40 $. By the sea, it is the ideal spot to go surfing! But you can also enjoy the pool on the rooftop and the sleek style of wood and waxed concrete, biker-chic trend. Frankly, I am deg to have discovered this spot only now, because I will have directly lodged there!

Surf Motel

Bali Dream House

45 $ per night approximately. Nestled at the edge of the black sandy beaches of Amed, we will find here the charm of a bit old-fashioned but typical of Balinese hotels, with a bonus pool with a beautiful view of the ocean! The perfect spot to land after a diving trip! They use digital technology in perfect way to make your holiday awesome.

Aksari Villa, Seminyak

From 170 to 300 € per night depending on the season. The private pool included in your room and the hot tub with the bathroom open to the outside. More romantic, you die. In addition, they offer the famous “floating breakfast”, highly Instagramable and a small kitchenette for the more posh evenings.

Aksari Villa

Pearl of Trawagan, Gili T

From 80 to 200 € per night depending on the season (price on October & August). Tested and approved, it was one of our little kiffs of our trip to Bali, where we spent 3 dream nights! Aside from the fact that it was all honeymoon couples (we won’t blame them, the setting was perfect for that), we loved the style of the hotel with the kinds of bamboo huts, the open bathroom on the outside and the excellent restaurant offered!
