We know that staying in the perfect place in Bali is part of the quintessential Bali experience. That is why we have created this Bali Airbnb guide to help you plan your perfect trip!

Below we have handpicked 15 of our favorite Airbnbs in Bali that you cannot miss. This list includes private pool villas, charming cottages, exotic treehouses, and more!

Enjoy! 

Where To Stay In Bali?

Before we pick out the perfect Bali Airbnb, you must first decide which area in Bali you would like to stay in. Bali is a big island and not all the attractions are concentrated in one area. Getting from one popular area of Bali such as Kuta to another such as Ubud could take over an hour!

Ideally, if you have the perfect Bali itinerary, you would spend a few days in each place before moving to the next one, sampling bits and pieces of the island.  However, if there is something you really prefer, such as nature, nightlife, beach, and etc, then you must carefully select where you should stay in Bali.

Here we will talk about the 4 most popular neighborhoods to stay in Bali: Ubud, Canggu, Seminyak, and Kuta!

Ubud – Lush Landscapes Nestled In The Balinese Jungle

Best Hotels In Bali
  • Save

Nestled in the Balinese jungle, Ubud is our favorite place to stay in Bali. Surrounding Ubud are some of the most amazing waterfalls in Bali, such as Nungnung Waterfall, Tegenungan Waterfall, and Tukad Cepung Waterfall.

Not only will you find the best nature in Ubud, but the town and the surrounding area is filled with culture. Guests will find numerous temples in and around Ubud, something that is lacking in Seminyak and Kuta.

Guests looking for some of the most charming private pool villas in Bali will find them in Ubud, hidden behind wide stretches of rice fields (such as the Tegalalang Rice Terrace) or towering trees.

If your idea of a Bali trip is exploring some of its stunning nature (no beaches though), engaging in Balinese culture, and staying at an idyllic villa, Ubud is the ideal place for you.

Canggu – Hippie Surfer Paradise

Next to some of the best waves in Bali, Canggu is a popular area to stay in Bali for surfers, hippies, and anyone that enjoys a laid-back vibe. This neighborhood is dotted with some of the most pristine beaches in Bali (equally as beautiful as Nusa Penida) that aren’t always overrun by tourists.

In Canggu, you will find lots of trendy restaurants and cafes, most of them serving nutritious health foods. Canggu is also home to some of the most popular beach clubs in Bali, such as Finn Beach Club and La Brisa. Many of these are great places to chill out and catch the sunset, or party it up at night!

A sucker for beaches? Check out Nusa Penida and its unspoiled beaches!

Seminyak – Best Nightlife in Bali

Best Neighborhoods To Stay In Bali
  • Save

If you want to party till sunrise and dance till you get blisters on your feet, then Seminyak is the perfect place to stay. Known as the most upscale neighborhood in Bali, Seminyak is filled with western restaurants, boutique shops, and trendy cafes.

If you are traveling Bali on a budget, you might want to avoid Seminyak. We got a shot of tequila for 200k IDR (~14 USD) at a club! Some of the most luxurious hotels in Bali are located in Seminyak. So if you want to stay somewhere in Bali for a special occasion, Seminyak might just be the perfect place.

Seminyak beaches, though not as tranquil and clean as the ones in Canggu, are incredible places to hang out during the day. Our favorite beach in Seminyak, the Double Six Beach, is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike.

Seminyak might be one of our least favorite places to stay, as it is overrun by tourists and the Balinese culture here is slowly diminishing. Consider that when picking a place to stay in Bali.

Kuta – Closest Area To The Bali Airport

Honeymoon In Bali
  • Save

Kuta is an area in Bali that is loved and hated at the same point. As the first developed area in Bali, Kuta is arguably the busiest place on the entire island. Usually, busy isn’t necessarily a terrible thing, but in Kuta, it is.

Pollution, traffic, and noise flood this highly-touristy neighborhood in Bali, and it isn’t exactly what you imagine when you dream of an island escape. Kuta has the highest concentrations of bars, nightclubs, and hotels on the island. If you are someone that likes to party and has the energy to go go go all the time, Kuta might suit you.

The only redeeming feature of Kuta is its proximity to the Ngurah Rai International Airport (Bali Airport) and its easy access to some decent beaches. It is also within walking distance of one of the biggest malls in Bali, if you are into that sort of thing.

But for us, we prefer to stay one or two nights in Kuta before heading off to another region.

There is no better Airbnb in Ubud than a private pool villa, and CAHAYA Skai Joglo provides exactly that. Floating amongst the treetops of Ubud’s lushest greenery, guests are blessed with some of the most amazing rice paddy views.

Built using reclaimed wood from 100-year-old homes, CAHAYA Skai Jogle offers unique decor unlike any other. All the material used in the construction of this villa is locally sourced and crafted by local artisans.

The result? An incredible private villa that oozes rustic charm.

Staying in the CAHAYA Skai Joglo is an experience on its own, and we highly recommend adding it to your Bali itinerary!

Because of the rope bridge to the entrance, open pool, and a high drop from the pool’s edge, this Airbnb might not be suitable for anyone traveling with children. It is, however, one of the best honeymoon Airbnbs in Bali!

CAHAYA Skai Joglo is not located inside Ubud city, but a 10-15 minute drive away. While you do have the utmost privacy and unspoiled nature, it does mean you need to have a way to get to Ubud city.
