Where Should we stay ?


Iam visiting Bali for the first time in Feb '14 with my wife. Will there for 5 nights. Need suggestions on where to stay. I have thought of 3 nights in Ubud and two nights at Kutta. But while going through various forums I understood that Kutta is crowded Place. My budget is moderate.

Legian is better than Kuta if you want to stay away from the night life and the crowds. It's a few kms north of Kuta. Still relatively cheap with accommodation ranging from $12 per night. That said, there are plenty of quiet places in Kuta to choose from as well. Best just check some out on Trip Advisor and read the reviews. If it's in a bad area, you'll soon find out.

Ubud is nice with plenty of cultural things to do but watch out for those "traditional" Indonesian Thai ornaments lol. Prepare for rain here more than in the south.

Good luck.

Try Tuban, which is the south end of Kuta, go one street back from Jalan Kartika Plaza and you will be quiet but still in the middle of things. Enjoy Bali.

Kuta is busy, Legian is an extension of Kuta and still busy as well. Seminyak and Tuban are not as busy but will still have you in the same area as Kuta sharing the same stretch of beach. So choose one of these options IF you want to be in a busy area. Otherwise Sanur may suit you better. You still have a beach, far less traffic and a more relaxed atmosphere with plenty of restaurants, shops, spas and places to walk, ride a pushbike or do watersports.

Thanks a lot everyone for this quick revert.

I Planned 3 nights in Ubud and 2 night in Kutta of any other beach. Shall I reduce my stay at Ubud , as it will be a rainy season? Also How would be Jimbaran. I can spend around $ 130 per nite.
