With its private beach, seven large lagoon pools and a veritable jungle of Balinese fauna, The Laguna is one of Bali’s most luxurious destinations. With trees this high, it can feel like you have the huge hotel all to yourself, which makes stumbling across little waterfalls all the more special.

Although the area is known for its loud and lively party scene, quiet respite can be found in this secluded enclave of 10 private villas. Just steps away from the world-famous Kuta beach, each villa has its own private pool and, for the ultimate relaxation, comes with its own dedicated staff, including a chef.
Candidasa is a sleepy seaside village nestled amid Bali’s unspoiled beauty, an absolute must for any serenity seeker. At The Watergarden, traditionally carved thatched cottages are hidden in a lush, tropical garden linked by private waterfalls, lotus ponds and freshwater koi streams.
Built on the shores of exclusive Jimbaran Bay, the InterContinental Bali Resort evokes a traditional Balinese fishing village while providing every point of waterside relaxation you’d ever hope for. At sundown, its beach fills with open-air eateries dishing up the freshest seafood.
