5 Best Airbnbs in Bali
1. Aura House
It’s honestly hard to believe that this gorgeous bamboo house in Bali is real, let alone that it’s one of the treehouses in Bali available for rent. But this majestic three storey building surrounded by the forest of rural Abiansemal and overlooking the Ayung river is indeed on Airbnb and an option for your next vacation.
Within its magnificent bamboo structure, this eco house can sleep up to four guests. There are two bedrooms each with a double bed, making it ideal for a honeymoon or couples getaway. Both bedrooms also have their own ensuite bathrooms, ensuring each room even more privacy. Then there’s the large living room area, with ample seating space and fantastic views of the forest canopy.
Even though the villa may seem remote, loads of local restaurants are a short walk away. That’s helpful to know as this Bali Airbnb only has a simple kitchen with a fridge and stove top. Other amenities include a small private swimming pool, a communal kitchen/restaurant, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning. The property even provides natural insect repellent should there be any mosquitos or other insects about.
2. Hideout Bali
A beautifully designed eco hut that’s perfect for nature lovers, this is easily one of the best Bali Airbnbs out there. You’ll find this secret hideaway near the town of Selat in eastern Bali below Mount Agung, the island’s mighty volcano. There you’ll be surrounded by nature in a private garden all to yourself.
Luckily though, you’re not so remote that you can reach local restaurants comfortably on foot or by scooter. Probably good to know as you’re actually provided a free scooter and helmets during your stay. If you don’t feel like leaving or using the small kitchenette in the hut, you can always order in from the owner’s own little bistro, which also provides your complimentary daily breakfast.
It’s important to understand that staying here is all about immersing yourself in nature. Don’t expect comforts like air-conditioning, TV, or even reliable Wi-Fi. The first floor of the bamboo hut is mostly open-air with the kitchen, living area, and a hammock for hanging out, plus a bathroom with an outdoor shower. Upstairs is the single bedroom which has a king bed and big windows.
3. Balian Treehouse
The island of Bali is a big place and it can be quite rewarding to venture beyond the main tourist areas to somewhere like this beautiful villa in Balian. Off in a quiet village far up the coast from Canggu and Tanah Lot, you’ll be close to some great surfing spots, and there are local warungs nearby where you can get food. Or you can just pick yourself some fruit from the large garden that surrounds the treehouse.
Speaking of the garden, it’s quite a sight to behold from your treehouse villa. Shared with other guest villas, the garden is a lush paradise with a pool and a quiet gazebo for you to hangout in. Whether it’s from your front porch, or the couch upstairs on the veranda living area, this serene view is sure to have you mesmerized for hours.
On the lower floor of this two storey hut is the bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom. The bedroom features a king bed for two, making this best suited to couples or solo travelers. And despite its strong nature vibes, this villa does come with modern perks like air-conditioning, TV, and Wi-Fi.
4. Lotus Cloud
If space and style are priorities for you when looking for accommodation, then this Bali house is sure to catch your eye. Situated in the village of Sebali just outside Ubud, this spacious home is near one of the best spas in Ubud and a short walk from both restaurants and great viewpoints.
One look at the living room of this house and you’ll immediately understand why it’s described as spacious. Featuring an open concept design, the large living space flows into the dining area and the fully-equipped kitchen. And yet, this gorgeous villa is only meant for groups of 2-4 people. There’s actually only one bedroom here, up in the loft overlooking the living room, which has a queen bed, but extra beds can be made up for groups of four.
The outdoor space is wonderful as well. Firstly, there’s the romantic balcony off the loft bedroom, then the large downstairs patio. Guests also have access to the beautiful cliff-edge infinity pool shared between the property’s villas. Other perks of staying here include the complimentary gourmet breakfasts, afternoon tea & snacks, as well daily housekeeping and a full suite of amenities for children. Plus, Wi-Fi and cable TV.
5. Sharma Springs
The beautiful Sharma Springs Airbnb has one of the most breathtaking views in Bali. This five-story bamboo house offers a unique design and an unforgettable experience. Relax on your private balcony in a luxurious hammock and absorb this heavenly slice of Bali.
You won’t just get four ensuite bedrooms to choose from; Sharma also has a private pool and yoga area, a media room, and a stunning living room with a view of the forest. Perched on the edge of the sacred Ayung River valley, you’ll see vistas stretching out as far as the eye can see.
