The best Airbnbs in Bali
We don’t need to sell Bali as a vacation destination. The Indonesian island province has been a favorite getaway for many and for good reason too.
Bali has an ideal climate, rich culture, wonderful and hospitable people, beautiful beaches and naturally scenic land. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s close and on the cheaper side of luxury vacations.
If you are looking to book a relaxing stay, soak up the sun and rejuvenate yourself in Bali, you will need the perfect accommodation. To help, we’ve rounded up some of the best Airbnbs available for booking, from ultra-luxury villas and hidden eco-cabins to bamboo treehouses and affordable beachside gems.

Luxury beach villa facing the cliff
This luxury villa doesn’t mess with big boujee ticks. Not only is it located on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean in South Kuta, but it also has two private pools if you feel like mixing up your swims. The three-bedroom villa offers chef, butler, and chauffeur service, a huge terrace and plenty of daybeds to stretch out on, ocean views from every angle and nearly every room, and the access to your own private beach. Book your stay here.
Hideout Eco Bamboo House
In Bali, it seems you can either enjoy beautiful waterfront views with sea breezes, or hide away deep in the rainforest in sustainably built eco-friendly huts. For the latter, consider this two-story house in the mountains of the Gunung Agung volcano. The bamboo hideout is on a river, completely in touch with nature. The master bedroom is a dream, with giant windows letting in the morning sun through the surrounding tree-lined landscape. You can even book packages for dinner, massages and an evening visit from the village shaman. Book your stay here.
Aura House Eco Bamboo
Some of these eco-friendly bamboo homes are just too pretty for words. If you’re looking to soar in the Bali forest, book this multi-level accommodation perched on the Ayung River in Abiansemal. The getaway built almost entirely of bamboo provides the perfect indoor and outdoor ambiance to enjoy the good weather with a private pool. Jump in the hammock and forget about your troubles to the sound of secluded nature. Book your stay here.
Bali teaches us a thing or two about beautiful, creative and architecturally designed bamboo eco-friendly homes. Again, we are generally blown away by this home in Selat – with its amazing structure, exterior pendant lighting, swing, indoor-outdoor kitchen and bathroom, outdoor spa, riverside location and its surroundings in the rainforest. Add in free breakfast, a fridge stocked with Bintang, and access to a scooter – a well-organized vacation stay. Book your stay here.
This is definitely one for boujee-prone people and for those traveling in groups. Villa Semarapura is a five-bedroom (and five-and-a-half-bathroom) home in Seseh-Tanah. Outside you will find the scenic waterfront, a swimming pool, plenty of outdoor terraces for lounging and BBQing, an outdoor bar and a communal tennis court. The interior has a legit mansion vibe, with traditional and modern furnishings, luxury bedrooms, a card table and a pool table. Not to mention that each single room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, its own bathtub and an open-air shower. Book your stay here.
Camaya Bali Suboya
There is definitely something in the air in Selat, as this secluded bamboo house is another must-see when considering your accommodation in Bali. Rather than overlooking the water, this house is aware of the vast and picturesque views of the rice terraces, with valleys and the peak of Mount Agung in the distance. Rest easy among the local farmhouses, with an outdoor hammock and hanging net on the second level, perfect for enjoying the surrounding serenity. Ask about local activities like rice terrace hiking, rafting, massages, yoga, and palace tours. Book your stay here.
Let’s be clear, not all accommodations in Bali need to be extremely grand, hidden deep in the mountains, or require a large group to affordably share the cost. If you’re looking for something simpler but still beautiful and romantic for a couple’s getaway, this tiny villa in Ubud might be ideal. Don’t get me wrong, this bed is still very nice, with a private pool balcony overlooking the surrounding green rice fields. You are also nice and close to many key Ubud holiday itinerary check-offs. Book your stay here.
Volcano View Villa
The couples retreat is definitely launched with this stunning two bedroom villa in South Kuta. Whenever we think Bali is done with world views and natural wonders, an Airbnb overlooking the ocean and some volcanoes falls on our radar. Not to mention, you can enjoy this view from the wraparound infinity pool, the cliffside gazebo, or while playing pool. You will appreciate the privacy and seclusion, while being a short distance from nearby shops and restaurants. Book your stay here.
We couldn’t help ourselves; we just had to add one last ridiculously luxurious villa for good measure. This beachfront six-bed is located in Kerambitan, in the southwest of Bali. Of course, despite being just meters from the ocean, it cradles a gigantic infinity pool amid lush tropical gardens. Enjoy the modern interior or take an outdoor terrace with views of Mount Batukaru. The master bedroom also has an adjoining terrazzo bath, so immediately that one. There are tennis and golf courses nearby if you can get up from your day bed and cocktail station. Book your stay here.
You wouldn’t imagine it, Villa Mimpi is a very real place where you can stay. You enter through hand-carved greenery (let that sink in for a hot second) into a private oasis centered on one of the most beautiful pools you’ll probably ever be aware of. Everything about this stay makes sense, including its affordability. Book your stay here.
