Well firstly I would not try and go to Lovina for your first nights as it is a long drive to the top end of the island from where you land and if you try and stay at 4 different places in the 10 days you will spend a lot of your time travelling.

Why not spend your first few nights in Legian which is still close enough to Kuta (right next door) to go to the clubs and also close to Seminyak for the more upmarket bars and resto's and then go to Ubud for a few nights and you could do a day trip to Lovina from there and then back to Kuta/Legtian for your last ngiht before flying out.

Just a few suggestions and I am sure you will get lots more from people who know more about things than I do. Enjoy whatever you do, Karen

Dan m, what time does your plane land in Bali? Lovina is the furtherest away and it would not be the place I would choose to spend night 1.

1. Nights 1 & 2 Uluwatu area

2. Nights 3, 4, & 5 Ubud

3. Nights 6 & 7 Lovina

4. Nights 8, 9 & 10 Kuta/Legian

My vote would be for not traveling so far or so often in 10 days if relaxing is one of your goals and maybe taking some day trips instead.

Thank you very much for your professional advise:

How about:

1- 1 night relaxing in Kuta ( I will land @ 2-3pm on that day) and adapting

2- getting up in Kuta and going for 2 nights Uluwatu

3- 3 nights Ubud, and a day trip to Lovina beach

4- 4 nights Kuta/ Legian

Cheers :)

Rather than spending your first night in Kuta and then moving, why not just go straight to uluwatu and spend 3 nights there?

There is no real need to have one night in Kuta and then go to Uluwatu choose one or the other. Both are a short drive from each other, many people just go to Uluwatu for a day unless of course you are into surfing or want a place away from the hustle and bustle.

Keep in mind that on a map distances look rather close BUT you cannot move fast on the roads, traffic is bad in the south, roads are not up to our Australian standards.

Lovina is a long slow drive from the airport.

You could head straight to:-----

* Ubud when you arrive and have three or 4 nights there.

* Move onto Lovina for 2 or 3 nights

* Return south and stay in Kuta / Legian for 3 or 4 nights.

Once you are in Kuta / Legian you can go to Uluwatu or any other southern area you would like to see.

This will mean only 3 moves which is really enough in 10 nights. Having a 4th move will cut down your time to relax.

Ubud is around one hour from the airport and the drive there will give you a chance to sit back, look around and it is not a long time in the car. Very scenic on the way there.

30 min drive with taxi should get you to uluwatu easily
