The Best 4-star Hotels in Bali that cost Less than 5-star
Table of Contents
There are many options if you are looking for a good, 4-star hotel in Bali. While 5-star hotels can be costly and inconvenient, 4- star don’t have to be as luxurious or expensive as they were previously thought to be.
They are still comfortable and provide all the amenities needed by travellers.
All of the hotels listed here are above the $120/night threshold which is quite good for such quality in an exclusive place like Bali.
1. Kayumanis Sanur Private Villa & Spa
Location: Jl. Tirta Akasa 28, Sanur, Denpasar 80227 Indonesia

You will be surprised how relaxing it is to be in the villa of Kayumanis Sanur Private Villa & Spa.
The resort is nestled on a lushly landscaped hillside overlooking the Indian Ocean, with each villa boasting its private pool and garden views.

You can enjoy breakfast in your villa or at the Gong Restaurant, which offers a variety of local specialities and international cuisine.
During your stay, make sure to take advantage of their activities like:
- Kite-Making Workshop: Kids learn how to make simple traditional kites and fly them on the beach.
- Bali Barbecue Dinner Party: Experience having a barbecue dinner party with your friends and family on the private poolside deck.
After a day of exploring Bali’s best sites or just lazing around by the poolside, pamper yourself at their spa, where you can try their unique bamboo massage treatment.
Personally, I think this is the best way to release all that tension and stress in your body and give in to deep relaxation and inner peace.
