Want to explore the best that Bali has got to offer? Or are you just looking forward to a laidback break? Here’s where to stay, no matter your itinerary
It’s hard not to fall in love with Bali (crystal-clear blue waters, majestic temples overlooking the ocean…c’mon!) A mere two hours away from Singapore, this lush tropical paradise boasts amazing dining and shopping options, vibrant nightlife, beautiful sunrise treks and pristine white beaches. Here at the Honeycombers HQ, we’ve got our finger on the pulse of the island’s hottest happenings. From the best places to eat, drink and see, we have it covered!
When it comes to our favourite places to stay in Bali, Seminyak is where we’ll be setting up camp. This bustling ‘hood is the epicentre of everything – whether you’re cafe-hopping or jumping off a waterfall, there’s no other precinct quite like it. If you want to be in the heart of all that Bali has to offer, then Montigo Resorts, Seminyak is the place to be. Just 30-minutes from Denpasar International Airport, the resort is located along the stretch of Jalan Petitenget where you’ll find plenty of places to eat and drink, art galleries and a nicely curated variety of shops, too!
Can’t decide whether to hit the waves in Canggu, or to bliss out at yoga retreat in Ubud? You can have the best of Bali if you’re staying at Montigo Resorts, Seminyak. The suites are in close proximity to the island’s popular attractions such as Jimbaran, Uluwatu and yes, Canggu. Want a quick escape from the buzz of the city? The resort is also an hour-and-a-half away from Ubud via car, making your mini excursion a breeze. Psst…don’t fret if you’re arriving without an itinerary – the resort has staff on hand to help recommend and organise activities to suit your needs.
If all you wanna do is chill out by the pool with a Mai Tai, then you’ve come to the right place. The suites have not one, but three swimming pools, feather-lined beds and a spa that features nine treatment rooms! The Montigo Spa will leave you feeling relaxed and recharged, with traditional massages, water-based therapies and nail services. Forgot your bikini? It happens! Now take a deep breath, ‘cos Montigo Cabin has all you need for a beach vacay. Grab that bathing suit, load up on your sunscreen or buy some last-minute souvenirs to take home.
The resort may be surrounded by Bali’s top restaurants and bars, but if you’re not up for queuing for a table at some of the island’s hottest establishments, you can always fall back on Montigo’s TIIGO Restaurant. The poolside restaurant whips up an international breakfast, lunch and dinner spread from live stations, all in a casual setting. Don’t forget to round off your meal by ordering a couple of cocktails from the bar!
For those bringing the fam, you won’t have to fuss over keeping the young’uns entertained. Tilo Kids Club organises fun activities for children aged six to 12, with mentors leading sessions ranging from music, Balinese arts and crafts, baking and more. Now, that’s a real holiday.
