Luxury Bali Holidays

Eat, stay, love

Bali takes you to one of Indonesia’s most popular islands. It’s attracting increasing numbers of visitors while maintaining its tranquil atmosphere and beautiful natural settings, making it ideal for a relaxing holiday. Couples will love the laid back vibe and opportunities to get away from it all, while explorers will find a fascinating culture, and unique landscapes ideal for hiking.

For spectacular golden beaches surrounded by lively restaurants, hotels, and bars, head to the Seminyak area of the island. Here you’ll find smaller resorts, including Denpasar with its upmarket hotels and selection of local and international restaurants. For a quieter beach resort, Jimbaran Bay has white sands, shallow waters, and a selection of star studded hotels. If you prefer to explore history, Ubud is surrounded by luscious rainforests and the emerald greens of traditional rice paddy fields, as well as being home to the famous Monkey Temple, art galleries, and Buddhist retreats.

Luxury holidays in Bali

Bali brings you the best of both worlds. It has historic temples, including Tanah Lot, which is located on a rock jutting out of the ocean, and the Monkey Temples where these friendly creatures will take food right from your hands. There are some fantastic spas for those wanting to spend the day indulging in a range of treatments, as well as some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Designer shops and boutiques are dotted around the south coast, with a great selection of luxury hotels to choose from.

Choose from Sovereign’s carefully selected range of properties for your luxury holiday in Bali and you can make the most of this fantastic island. We’ll take the time to recommend the ideal hotel for you, with our expert Trusted Advisers on hand to help you make the right choice. Stay at the Four Seasons Sayan and you’ll find yourself surrounded by luscious rainforests, while the Fairmont Sanur Beach offers spectacular views of the sea from its infinity pool.

Destinations in Bali
Jimbaran Bay
Jimbaran was once a sleepy fishing village. The long, sandy bay still feels laid-back – but these days it comes with a generous helping of designer hotels and beach clubs.
Nusa Dua
The beach resort of Nusa Dua walks on the luxurious side of life, sprinkling palm-coddled villas, sea-view spas and golf clubs along the wave-cut beaches of a south coast peninsula.
Sandy Sanur Beach skims along the south-east coast of Bali. Hotels, restaurants and art galleries pad out the town behind, while a reef and sailboats sit out front.
Seminyak is a wealthy suburb of Kuta. It’s laced with designer boutiques, beachside cocktail bars and five-star hotels that all face towards the south-west coast’s famously vivid sunsets.
If there’s one place that can tempt you away from Bali’s beaches, it’s Ubud – an upland town surrounded by Hindu shrines, glossy rainforests, honeymoon retreats and tiered rice paddies.

When to go

Situated close to the equator, Bali has a tropical climate with two distinctive dry and rainy seasons. The rainy seasons last from around November to February. April to June is a lovely time to visit Bali; it’s dry, temperatures hover around 27°C and there’s less humidity than in July and August. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Indonesia for 30 days or less.


Tipping isn’t required in Bali as a service charge will generally be added to your bill at restaurants and hotels, so there is no need to leave a tip as well. However, if you wanted to leave a tip for excellent service, aim for 10,000 to 20,000 rupiah for drivers, porters and wait staff (although try to hand it to them directly rather than leaving it on the table). 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Bali is Indonesian. English is widely spoken too.


No vaccines are required or recommended for travel to Bali, however all routine immunisations need to be up to date. For full details, please contact your GP.
