Boutique hotels and resorts in Bali cater to those looking for more than just a standard hotel room accommodation in a large five star hotel chain. Small and intimate, one gets to know the real Bali without sacrificing luxury.
Some of the Boutique hotels in Bali have been designed by Australian architect Peter Muller. Muller, who was the architect for today's Bali Oberoi in the 70s when it was still known as Kayu Ayu, perfected his vision of combining traditional Balinese architecture with a modern luxury resort. Many architects in Bali have followed Peter Muller's style.
The Four Seasons Resort Bali which has been named by numerous magazines as the best resort in the world, has been clearly influenced by Muller's vision. This resort of nearly 150 individual villas each with its own pool, although large for a boutique hotel, it is the large grounds and the lay-out of the villas which give the impression that you have the entire resort and a private view of the entire island alone.
For those truly looking for local character several new luxury resorts accommodation often run by traditional princes have sprung up closer to Ubud in recent years. In particular one should take note of Ibah and which overlooks the Campuan River. The royal family of Ubud has been hosting guests since early this century and one can feel this in the ambience and service. This combined with a host a nearby temples and activities such as dance and drama available to visitors in Bali's self declared artist's village Ubud, offer a wonderful experience in the lap of luxury accommodation.
For those in search of a beach side boutique resort there is, in Candi Dasa East Bali The Watergarden.
