Don't jump right away into the hotel listing. Take a view minutes to go through the different areas, to figure out where you should stay and for how long. This will save you time, bad surprises, and most likely also money.
If you compare prices, always make sure you compare final prices. Some booking systems do promote a seemingly cheaper price but add the usual taxes and services charges at the end (up to 21%), just before payment. So you might end up paying even more.

We have chosen our Bali Hotel Booking Partner carefully - and we tested many! The very small commission we get if you book through us does not add to your bill and is almost same for all of the partners out there, so this did not influence our choice. But, we wanted great prices for you, a large variety, a 100% trustworthy and reliable reservation system. And, we wanted our hotel partner to offer great ways to filter the hotel listings and an easy to use interface. This will certainly help you to get through the loooong list of hotels, resorts and villas.
Narrowing down the best choices based on your preferences, budget and interests is the key - particularly for Bali. To avoid missing great opportunities we suggest you took note of the few suggestions we mentioned above.

Ubud, Kuta, Seminyak are all quite large areas, staying in a hotel Seminyak can mean a lot of things. Zoom in the map! But be aware: Looking at a hotel that is located near the coastline could make you believe it's just a short walk to the beach. But roads are tricky here on Bali. Zoom the map and look at the roads closely, that will give you a clearer picture on what to expect and whether you can reach the beach easily or not.
