The 13 Best 3-star Hotels in Bali that are Close to the Beach to Save Time

The 13 Best 3-star Hotels in Bali that are Close to the Beach to Save Time

3-star hotels are a common pick among tourists that prefer to save money and spend more time outside.

Since Bali is famous for its beaches, it makes sense to look for those hotels that are close to them. Fortunately, there are many convenient places where you can stay without spending a fortune.

I will show you 13 3-star hotels with a good quality/cost ratio and that will make your life easier if you just want to have a swim or go surfing.

1. Artotel Sanur

Artotel Sanur

Location: Jl. Kesumasari no. 1, Sanur, Denpasar 80227 Indonesia

Starting Rate: $53/ night

Artotel Sanur provides a peaceful but vibrant experience of Bali, the sea, and just 2 minutes from the Sanur beach.

You know you’re in for a good time when you walk into a hotel, and the walls are covered in art, the staff is friendly and helpful, and there’s a rooftop bar.

That’s what happened when I went to this hotel. It’s like walking into a museum where the staff is there to serve you instead of the other way around. 

You will notice the gorgeous artwork on display, from traditional Balinese art to new contemporary pieces that are just as beautiful.

The restaurant, Lidah Lokal, has tasty food options (the papaya salad is impressive). And if you get hungry for more than just dinner? Just head down to Bar At Rooftop for cocktails and snacks before heading back up for another round of drinks.
