Bali holidays are always close to my heart. I did my Bali Backpacking multiple times either for beach holidays, adventure sports and cultural tours or for complete relaxations. I was lucky to pick and choose the right kind of hotels that added perfection to my trips. My stay in Bali has always been pleasurable as I stayed in almost all the Top hotels of this Island Paradise. Choosing a hotel among the Top Hotels to stay in Bali might be challenging to any Budget Backpacker, Solo traveller or Honeymoon couple visiting this “Island of Gods” as the options are countless. From my travel memories, I am writing down a comprehensive guide about the top five hotels to stay in Bali during Bali Backpacking.

Pro Tip: Before you decide to book your hotels to stay in Bali, it is important to mark the major tourist’s areas and book the hotel in and around that area. There are six hubs or centers from where you can move in any direction inside Bali to explore this island. These famous locations are Kuta, SEMIYANK, LEGIAN, UBUD, and JIMBARAN AND NUSA DUA. Finding out the best hotels to stay in Bali around these areas is indeed a challenging task as the options are uncountable.

Adi Dharma Hotel, Kuta
