Sea view, safari, nature, exotic hotels in Bali -- you've got it all here!
#01 - Pullman Bali Legian Beach (Kuta Area)
Pullman Bali caught my eye with its stunning infinity pool, one of the better ones in my opinion in Kuta area. Another plus point is that Yoga classes are also conducted at this hotel right by the infinity pool.
Pullman Bali also has a wide selection for breakfast. It has an alfresco dining area by the kids pool, baby sitting upon request, children's club and outdoor playground, that makes it a great accommodation for family retreat with kids.
The newly refurbished Premium Deluxe Ocean View rooms has superb panoramic views of the ocean from the huge balcony. Their excellent service also indeed live up to their 5-star rating.
After a long tiring day out in Bali, relax and rejuvenate at Tjakra 7 Spa. The spa has various affordable massage and treatment packages from 450.000++ IDR. The staff there has a good command of English so you need not worry about communication. The hydro pool is really awesome with chair-like and bench-like structures submerged across the warm pool. It gives a great hydro therapy to relieve the stress on your back, shoulder and feet.

#02 - Mara River Safari Lodge (Gianyar Area)
Mara River Safari Lodge is the perfect place for animal lovers to stay the night. Located right in the heart of Bali Safari, Swala Deluxe rooms in Mara River Safari Lodge are located at the ground floor with views of the zebra, rhinos and giraffes right outside your balcony. Imagine seeing these adorable animals right when you open your eyes in the morning. Carrots are provided for you to feed the animals in the safari. We had plenty of fun feeding the goats, rabbits and guinea pigs in the petting zoo.
Best part is that you can go back to the comfort of your room any time to take a break from the heat in the safari, or jump into the pool in the safari lodge for a dip!
The Stay and Safari packages are really very value-for-money and I personally find it more worth it that just going for the safari ticket alone. Check out Mara River Safari Lodge website for more details on the packages or book a room here!

#03 - Desa Visesa (Ubud Area)
If you are looking for a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life and truly embracing all things nature, Desa Visesa Ubud is the perfect getaway for you.
On arrival, you will be greeted with a traditional Balinese ritual blessing to bring good luck.
The price of the villas are a little on the pricey side, but it is value-for-money for a family retreat with its one and two-bedroom villas with your own private pool. You can opt for a luxurious floating breakfast in your pool villa or dine at the resort restaurant.
Desa Visesa is quite the attraction in itself. Besides the usual facilities you get from a resort like gym, pool, and yoga classes, there are alot of leisure activities at Desa Visesa.
You can join a handicraft class, plough in the fields, feed and release the ducks, feed the ponies, learn how to cook Balinese food, or even join a Balinese dance class.
There's also a colourful hot air balloon, though pricey to ride on it, you can simply take a great Insta shot with it for FREE!
