  • 10 Best Design Hotels in Bali

    Bali’s Most Popular Stylish Resorts

    Design hotels in Bali have emerged over the past decade, and it is safe to say that the island has the most stylish collection when compared to other destinations in Indonesia, and perhaps all of Southeast Asia. They bring a touch of uniqueness, together with a range of inimitable design features courtesy of world-class architects and interior designers. Some of these hotels in Bali follow their international brand’s universal directives with colourful schemes and signature fittings, and others do their own thing with totally fresh and sometimes bold styles. Bali’s best design hotels are all located on the southern coast, especially around the sophisticated Seminyak area.

    Each striking and boasting different themes, these 10 best design hotels in Bali share a similar goal, to stand out among the rest, leave guests in awe with special touches and distinctive facilities, and become trendsetters through their cutting edge designs.

  • W Retreat & Spa Bali Seminyak extends the W brand’s worldwide appeal to the shores of Bali’s upscale Seminyak area.
