The many stars of Kerobokan
Kerobokan is known for its glamorous side that entices travellers with a generous list of trendy restaurants, night clubs and sweep of premium, star rated hotels. Days are easily spent shopping to your heart's content at Jalan Kerobokan, while nights consist of club hopping through nearby Seminyak before crashing at a swish 4- or 5-star resort.
Boutique accommodation with all the amenities of a luxury stay are available throughout the city. This includes the One Villa, which provides guests with one and two bedroom private villas close to the Ulun Danu Temple. It is also close to the Winehouse bar, making it easy to let your hair down in Kerobokan.
Get to the beach
This destination may be known for its dazzling beaches, but that doesn't mean that the waterfront is overrun with people. Quite the opposite, as there are a number of area beaches without the crowds. Whether you want to relax in the sun at Pantai Brawa Beach, or savour the sunsets of Petitenget Beach, the option for quality coastal fun is abundant.
Along with this sweep of amazing beaches comes a great selection of waterfront hotels that encourage relaxation with tranquil ocean views. The Grand Balisani Suites provides great value for money with 3.5-star amenities and direct access to the water. The Brown Feather Hotel is another option on the water with 3-stars and cheap rates.
Kuta and beyond
One of the benefits of staying in Kerobokan is the central location. This city is close to a number of other popular destinations, inviting exploration across the region. If shopping and clubbing are you thing, head 15 minutes south to Kuta. For rural beauty, Canggu to the north can't be beat.
When it comes to booking your stay, Kerobokan is a great place to bunk up and plan a day trip or two. Alternatively, Kuta hotels range from the 4.5-star luxury of the Discovery Kartika Plaza Hotel to the budget friendly Hotel terrace at Kuta. There is also a good variety of hotels and rates in Canggu, including the budget-friendly Legong Keraton Beach Hotel.
