Heavenly Bali requires a special hotel with a private pool! It’s just one of those places; forested volcanic mountains, achingly beautiful beaches, tropical coral reefs and a wonderful spiritual essence. Your accommodation needs to match then. To be beautiful, slightly tropical and to help you relax and let your cares melt away; and we firmly believe a private pool helps you do that! Read on for our guide to the best hotels with private pools in Bali…
The enchanting Tugu Hotels are owned by Indonesia’s biggest art collector which means that as well as the oceanfront Hotel Tugu Bali being a beautiful hotel, it’s also home to many fascinating and stunning works of art, antiques and cultural artefacts collected from all over Indonesia giving the place a deeply romantic air. The adjacent sandy Canggu Beach is the perfect place to take a gentle horse ride or an evening stroll along the sand, dipping your toes into the warm Indian Ocean.
The opulent thatched suites are dotted between lotus ponds in the hotels’ lush grounds. Each room is individually created by the owner, displaying immaculate attention to detail and are a wonderful showcase for the eclectic collection of antiques, the rooms truly capture the vibrant spirit, passion for art and romance of Indonesia. Most of the rooms include private plunge pools and exquisite carved 4-poster beds.
Relax by the large, deep blue pool, surrounded by lush foliage, or indulge yourself in a treatment at the lavish Spa & Wellness area. You can take a yoga class, learn to cook using traditional Javanese or Balinese methods or learn local styles of flower arranging or Balinese dance.
There are five restaurants serving exotic Indonesian cuisine but you are equally encouraged to dine in numerous romantic nooks around the lush grounds. There’s also a stylish bar, a Japanese restaurant and Sunset Beach which is home to Tugu’s legendary full moon barbecues.
The 5-Star Viceroy Bali is just 5 minutes’ drive to the thriving culture and arts centre of Ubud, yet the location feels like another world. This is the ideal place to relax and renew in utter tranquillity. Each of the spacious 25 villas are exquisitely furnished and exceedingly private. And importantly, each villa has its own heated pool and outdoor cabana as well as unrivalled views of the surrounding valley and dense jungle. A soft, artfully manicured garden rolls gently off to the side of the main infinity-edged pool overlooking the jungle valley opposite. Nearby, a path leads down to CasCades restaurant, the beating heart of the resort with its 10-metre cone-shaped grass thatched roof.
Samabe Bali Suites & Villas
The tropical getaway of Samabe Bali Suites & Villas with its private beach just a minutes’ walk away is located in the Nusa Dua region of Bali. Scattered amid the tropical rainforest-covered terraces on top of the picturesque cliffs are the beautiful Balinese-style thatched villas, all positioned just so to make the most of the ocean views. Days here are spent lazing by the outdoor pool, dipping your toes into the warm sands of the private beach and relaxing with a treatment at Thalasso spa. There’s also a gym and unlimited non-motorised water sport so if the pace slows too much you can pick things right up again! There’s a lot of flexibility in your accommodation choices; you can opt for all-inclusive, standard or honeymoon benefits; you can choose to have a private pool or not (though of course, you’re going to choose TO have a private pool!) and you can choose from 39 suites or 42 luxury villas.
