Bali just got cheaper! I recently discovered such quaint and gorgeous little boutique hotels nestled in the heart of Seminyak while helping my aunt plan her surprise getaway to Bali this month. So ditch the large chain corporate style hotels and opt for these tiny ones full of character and at such an unbelievable price too! Often when looking for a budget hotel, you wonder whether the rooms will be clean, safe etc. I’ve done the research, so you don’t have to. These are the best deals for accommodation in the Seminyak region with the best reviews too.
1. Room & Vespa @INR 4500
Address: no., Jl. Kayu Aya No.17, Kuta, Kabupaten Badung, Bali, Indonesia
They have four properties, all in the bustling and fun parts of central Seminyak. These guys really know what a traveler is looking for on a trip. They give you the option of booking a ‘Room & vespa scooter’ or just the room. At a price of INR 4500/- per night approx. not including breakfast this is cheaper than most good hotels in India for sure. Room & Vespa 4 is my favorite as I love the laid back contemporary beach style decor. But the others are also quaint and luxurious with pools that beckon. So take your pick.
2. Ananda Resort Seminyak @ INR 2800
Location, location, location!! This hotel is perched on a road filled to the gills with shops, supermarket, restaurants and stores. If you’re the type to explore a city on foot, this is the place for you. Seminyak Village Mall is also walking distance from here. You can take a short cab or bike ride to KuDeTa sunset club or the beach which is 5 minutes away. Have breakfast at a different cafe everyday. I would certainly recommend Coffee Library just opposite the road. Motel Mexicola is also a fun restaurant to spend the evening. For this price, it’s a steal and you’re getting good value for money with their large rooms and great pool. The superior bungalow is for INR 2800/- per night including breakfast. If you are travelling in a group of 4, then go for their two bedroom deluxe double suite for INR 7656/- approx per night including breakfast.
