Therefore, many people choose Bali hotels with beach view or beachfront position in Uluwatu as their best deals when looking for accommodations. Many hotels and villas in Uluwatu are quite expensive because of the location, especially since you must spend extra money to hire driver or rent vehicles. However, beachside or beachfront accommodations will make your spending worth it.
Bali Hotels in Uluwatu with Beach View
Many hotels in Uluwatu may boast their ‘close proximities’ with the beach, but how close? Do they provide mere minutes of walking distance to the sea, or you actually need to drive to reach the beach? Make sure you pay attention to this detail, especially since maps in Indonesia can be a bit far off from accuracy.
Here are some recommended Bali hotels and villas in Uluwatu that definitely has beach view or located in beachfront area:
- Uluwatu Cottage
