The Island of Gods has a unique allure not many destinations can match. With its rolling waves that go on for days, orange-hued skies at sunset, and picture-perfect rice paddy fields paired with rich Balinese culture, it truly is paradise on earth. It’s easily accessible too, being less than three hours away from Singapore.
Although Bali is already home to some of the most luxurious resorts in Southeast Asia, 2017 sees more resorts and villas opening up on the island — not that we are complaining. Operated by the likes of Singapore-based COMO Hotels and Resorts to Japanese luxury brand Hoshino Resorts, these new resort and hotel openings are giving visitors even more options for a relaxing beach vacation in Bali.
If you’re looking for off-the-beaten-track activities, which include visiting secret beaches and hidden waterfalls, check out our Bali guide courtesy of the island’s finest concierges. In the meantime, here are 5 Bali resorts and hotels that are opening, or have opened in 2017 — perfect for a getaway from the bustling city. Take the weekend off, and you’ll come back to work on Monday feeling completely energised, and ready to take on the week.
