If you’ve got a taste for the champagne lifestyle then you'll adore Bali's most luxurious five-star resorts. These hotels are not the ordinary all-inclusive type – they’re the absolute crème de la crème of paradise holidaying.

By day you’ll lounge poolside in a cabana being waited on hand and foot – then by night you’ll dine at a fine dining restaurant and head back to your own private suite to lay your head on a king-sized bed looking out at the Indian Ocean. If that sounds like your type of luxury Bali holiday, then you’ve come to the right place…

So, let’s take a closer look at Bali’s most luxurious resorts and the must-do things you can enjoy there.

Soori Bali

First up on our list of luxury Bali holidays is a stay at the ultra-modern Soori Bali. It might be on the high-priced side of things, but you certainly get what you pay for – every inch of the place exudes style and elegance.

The most impressive accommodation here is the Soori Estate. In fact, we’d go as far to say it’s one of the best, grandest resort residences in all of Bali.

Set across 56,510ft2 of space and boasting ten large bedrooms, the estate is most suitable for large families, groups of friends, or even corporate groups in search of pure extravagance. It even comes with four infinity pools, 24/7 butler service, and its own helipad. If that’s not over-the-top luxury we don’t know what is.

Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay

Next up is Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay. This place is the perfect option if your idea of luxury is an endless array of R&R options.

The menu of things to do here covers every type of holiday-goer too such as a therapeutic massage at the oceanfront Healing Village Spa or an adrenaline-pumping heli-surfing in East Java.

Or for an educational experience, how about a Balinese painting masterclass or an afternoon taking part in a variety of rituals and ceremonies over at the Ganesha Cultural Centre?

And if you’re simply up for being a big kid for the day, the resort is also just a 20-minute taxi journey away from the award-winning Waterbom Bali Water Park – home to over a dozen slides and attractions.

The Legian Bali

If you're a beach-dweller who loves nothing more than spending the day lazing on golden sands and occasionally dipping your toes in the ocean, boy do we have a resort for you: The Legian Bali.

With this resort taking a prime spot on the lively Seminyak Beach, it really is the perfect choice if you’re sociable beings who’d love to sip cocktails in Seminyak’s swanky beachfront bars and stroll along the beach trying out the plethora of exciting water sports. But don’t worry, the peace and quiet of the resort is waiting for your return once you’re done with the bustling crowds. 

Come back and head straight to the on-site spa for a foot scrub or full body massage – and then grab a sunlounger around the waterfront pool to watch the sunset over the ocean horizon. Luxury Bali holidays are all about reclining and relaxing, not having to lift a finger, right?

Jumana Bali Ungasan Resort

Exploring the best of beautiful Hindu temples by foot are an absolute must for Bali travellers, but not every day needs to be an action-packed adventure. Some days all you’ll want to do is lounge by the pool with the glorious Indonesian sun beaming down – especially if you stay at Jumana Bali Ungasan Resort, one of Bali’s most renowned five-star hotels.

Peaceful pool days here are best enjoyed in the comfort of your private villa. The selection of Sanctuary Sea-View Villas come with their very own infinity pools you get all to yourself – then when you fancy a dip in the ocean, take a stroll down to white sands of Melasti Beach just a 15-minute walk away. 

You can even book an in-room massage when you truly want to feel whisked away to paradise. Luxury Bali holidays don’t come much more relaxing than this.

COMO Shambhala Estate

Last on our list of Bali’s most luxurious resorts is COMO Shambhala Estate. This is the place to come if luxury to you is participating in a programme of health-focussed activities  and indulging in delicious and nutritious meals – all to come home feeling rejuvenated, revitalised, and gorgeously sun-kissed. 

As you can guess, this resort is a wellness retreat that aims to immerse you in the holistic healing powers of the natural world, but it’s not hardcore regimented or restricted – you’re free to explore the resort’s amenities at your own pleasure.

Join a hike up the nearby Mount Abang, release some inner tension in a group yoga class, go white water rafting down the Ayung River, or simply order a beer around the pool and lounge the day away. 

It helps that the private rooms on offer are an absolute dream here too – especially if you stay in one of the Garden Suites boasting a humongous king-sized bed and a private balcony overlooking the lush tropical greenery of the surrounding rainforests.

Ultra-luxury holidays in Bali FAQs

What are the most luxurious places to visit in Bali?

Bali is home to many unique destinations fit for luxury-seeking travellers, but Nusa Dua is most known as a mecca for lovers of all things shiny and expensive. Close to the sea-side resort of Uluwatu, Nusa Dua is an exclusive gated enclave of high-class resorts, luxury shopping, and quiet and secluded beaches.

We often recommend booking two or more different accommodations in one single trip, especially if you plan to explore the island’s must-visit places and landmarks – that way you won’t throw away money on transport or spend most of your time getting from A to B.
