We have reviewed the cheapest hotels in Bali that you can spend your loyalty points and miles on. Whether you are looking for spiritual harmony in Ubud or prefer the beach resorts of Seminyak and Nusa Dua, these are the best hotels where you can spend your credit card or hotel loyalty points.
It is worth mentioning that it is NOT always a good idea to buy your Bali vacation on points. Often you are getting poor value for your loyalty points, particularly midweek and in low season, as hotel rates in Bali can be very cheap anyway, so it often works out better to spend your cash and EARN your points in Bali and then spend them in expensive cities or more expensive hotels in Europe, America and Australasia. As an example, the InterContinental Bali can be booked for around US$200-$300 or a mix of IHG points and cash, I saw 20,000 points + 128.00 USD per night. Although I could not find purely reward based nights available this is not a great point valuation. Midweek in the low season, you can snag a room at this InterContinental for as little as $170/room/night. Because of the low prices here, you’re usually better off paying for a room with cash than using your points here.
That said, pick one of the cheapest point redemption hotels in Bali and you can burn very few points for a comparatively luxurious stay. If you decide to pay for your stay in Bali, or elsewhere, book via our luxury travel concierge. We offer free upgrades, free breakfasts and free perks at hotels including the Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Ritz Carlton, InterContinental, Grand Hyatt, Marriott and more at no extra cost.

This hotel is part of the Marriott Bonvoy scheme and is a category 5 property costing 35,000 Bonvoy rewards points per night.
7. Conrad Bali
If you are a Hilton Honors Diamond member or have any brand loyalty to Hilton, you must try the Conrad Bali, located on the quieter side of the island of Bali, in the Nusa Dua resort area and away from the madness of trendy Seminyak. Take a taxi from the airport to the Conrad Bali hotel for around $25 for a 20-minute taxi ride.
This hotel is simply stunning from the grand, dark wood lobby with windows that swing open to the vista beyond, to the lagoon pools and the huge variety of rooms, some with their own private pool. It is also surprisingly cheap both for cash and points.
The rooms to pick here are the new Pool Villas, which are considered part of the Conrad Suites Wing, with its own separate entrance. The villas are hidden away between the reflections lounge and the executive lounge. Guests staying in these villas will have access to the executive lounge at the Conrad Bali. The private plunge pool is a highlight in this climate although bear in mind this is a plunge pool, not an exercise pool, so if you want to exercise, you will need to swim laps in one of the main pools and lagoons. That said, it is magic and sits between the bedroom and your own private lawn in your garden.
Pool Villas at Conrad Bali get all the Conrad Suites benefits. If you are a Hilton Honors Diamond member you also get these same benefits, the highlight being the Conrad Suites Club Lounge access.
If you are staying in a Suite or a Pool Villa or are a Hilton Honors Diamond member, you get the following “free” benefits:
Breakfast from 7:00AM to 10:30AM at RIN restaurant
Afternoon tea from 3:00PM to 5:00PM at RIN restaurant
Evening cocktails from 5:00PM to 7:00PM at Conrad Suites Club Lounge
Complimentary internet access
Complimentary unlimited laundry & dry cleaning
15% off food & beverage in restaurants and bar
15% off meeting room rental
25% off all Jiwa Therapeutic treatments
When compared to the Marriott Bonvoy St Regis hotel in Bali the Pool Villas in Conrad Bali do not quite match up, but this is taken into account in the price, and cost per enjoyment, the Conrad Bali is hard to beat and is definitely one of the best cheap points resorts in Nusa Dua. When you stay in a Conrad Pool Villa, you will wake up to the sound of birdsong and waves lapping on the shore. Paradise? It certainly comes close.
The Conrad Bali costs 35,000 Hilton Honours loyalty rewards per night for a standard room, 36,000 for a Premium Deluxe Lagoon room, and 46,000 for an Ocean Front. 56,000 points will get you lagoon access so that you can jump straight into the pool from your room and 94,000 points will get you a pool villa, but as I outlined above, it may work out more cost effective to pay for your stay rather than burn your points as hotels in Bali are comparatively cheap, particularly out of the main season.
If you decide to pay for your stay, book The Conrad Bali via our luxury travel concierge to get the following FREE benefits* as well as your usual Hilton Honours points and status benefits:
Complimentary breakfast for two
$100 USD hotel credit per stay, or local currency equivalent
Next category upgrade, subject to availability
Double Hilton Honors Points.
8. Grand Hyatt Bali
The Grand Hyatt is located in Nusa Dua on the southernmost tip of Bali with beaches on both sides of the resort. This hotel offers great value on paid stays and if you book through our luxury travel concierge we can get you some brilliant additional free benefits at this Hyatt for no extra cost.
If you are a Globalist World of Hyatt member, you can expect a nice upgrade at this hotel and while the rooms are typical Asian Hyatt which is a good version of American Hyatt’s, the bathrooms at this Hyatt are truly stunning and massive, in the suites with masses of cream marble and a separate shower and tub.
The resort itself is edged by the most glorious golden sand which enjoys stunning sunrises and has numerous pools, some seem to be aimed at families with others being more adult orientated. One has a kids waterslide which will attract your kids.
Club rooms have their own building situated by the Club lounge and with a private Club pool. The Grand Club is open-air and designed to look like a Balinese house with straw roofing with breakfast and cocktail hours along with all day snacks and drinks.
The club lounge here is well worth the upgrade even if you are booking on points and have to pay for it. This Grand Hyatt is a bargain At 12,000 points per night or around $200 per night and although there is not much to do in the immediate vicinity (same goes throughout Nusa Dua, you are somewhat stuck in your resort) this hotel is a magical place to stay.
The Grand Hyatt Bali is a Category 3 World of Hyatt Property, requiring just 12,000 points per night. Hyatt is a 1:1 transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards card. This card earns an amazing sign-up bonus. Currently you get 60,000 bonus points after you spend $4,000 on purchases in the first 3 months after account opening, so you would get 4 nights at the Grand Hyatt Bali for free, by signing up for this Chase Ultimate Rewards card.

10. The Ritz-Carlton Bali
While not cheap, the Ritz Carlton Bali probably has the best hotel club lounge in Bali so is worth considering if you feel like splurging your points or just treating yourself. This is an incredible hotel (pictured above). Offering 313 spacious and sumptuously appointed suites and villas, in an elegant tropical ambience, The Ritz-Carlton Bali is a luxurious resort benefitting from a stunning clifftop and beachside setting. This hotel is incredible and one of the best Ritz Carlton hotels in Asia. It is a true resort hotel and has a fabulous club lounge.

Experience the exquisite service at The Ritz-Carlton Club®, for an additional fee. This club lounge is great with its own private pool and a manned cocktail bar.
