Planning a first ever trip to Bali but want to avoid Kuta and surrounds. Travel planning for two adults.
Considering 7 lazy days somewhere around Ubud (inland is the idea) and 7 days on the coast for beach (in)action.
Looking at resorts but don't want to be stuck in the 'middle of nowhere' with no restaurant options beyond that offered by the resorts.
Pictures in mind: as private as possible, lap-pool?, walking (or short drive) distances to closest town/village for food variety.
Room Budget ~AUD$170 - $250/night for 2 people.
How much could we expect to pay for local (cheap) eating?
Experiences or thoughts are most welcome.
