For many, a visit to Bali, with its stellar selection of first class resorts, is a wellness vacation in itself. We round up our favourite hotels, resorts, and places to stay when you’re in Bali.
Just over a year old, Andaz Bali is the first Andaz resort in Asia and it’s located in the heart of Sanur, a quaint seaside village known for its old-world charm, picturesque beaches and spectacular sunrises. The resort’s concept reflects the locale and is inspired by the surrounding villages, from its buildings nestled amid lush greenery to the use of the distinctive red brick, a traditional construction material in Sanur. Of the 149 Balinese-style guestrooms available, there are 18 Garden Villas and four Beach Villas arranged in a series of courtyards. Each room boasts a private balcony overlooking the garden, ocean or lagoon.
