Have a few questions regarding a potential vacation in Indonesia. We would be traveling from Jan 29-Feb 11, coming from the US. Due to travel time and time different, it looks like we probably would not get to Jakarta until Jan 31 in the afternoon, giving us 10 full days in Indonesia. Tentative plan would be to stay in Jakarta for 1-2 nights, so will roughly be in Bali from 2/2-2/10 and to go back to Jakarta on 2/10. This will be our first time in Indonesia.
1. For first timers, where should we plan on staying? I am thinking we should split our time in Bali between two places. We are interested in food/culture, nature, light hiking, sightseeing, and beach. I know it will be rainy season, but lying on a beach all day isn't really our thing anyways. I am thinking Ubud and somewhere else but am not sure where that somewhere else should be. Any suggestions?
2. We are a family of 5 with the 3 "children" all being in our 20's. Any suggestions for accommodations? It seems like a lot of what I have seen only accommodates 2 people in a room, but it seems excessive to have to get a 3rd room just for a 5 person. Looking for places that will accommodate 2-4 in a room. We do want nice comfortable and clean lodging but it does not need to be over the top luxury. Open to big name hotel franchises as well as non-big name and villas or even airbnb suggestions. Location is important. Breakfast included is a big plus. Looking to spend no more than 300/night for all 5 of us.
