7 Selected North Bali Hotels


We enjoyed a variety of interesting accommodation and activities.

Here are 7 quite different hotels in North Bali, known locally as Buleleng.

Adirama Beach Hotel Lovina - Absolute Beachfront  ****.*
Adirama Beach Hotel can be classed as a “Family Hotel” in the true sense of the word. It was rescued from an abandoned state after the Bali bombings of 2002 by Hollander Ruud van Ginkel and brought back to life with an enthusiastic team, most of whom have been with Adirama since it was re-opened. Then there is a great family atmosphere at the restaurant and around the pool. The hotel is almost full most months due to returning guests who have had a good time on their last visit(s).
The hotel rooms are on 2 levels in 2 blocks. The delightful restaurant directly overlooks the ocean and the old pier where VOC ships used to moor. Dolphin viewing trips leave from the beach daily, and there is a range of diving options available via the concierge, as well as tours of local attractions.
The inviting pool is a central meeting place for families when not at the restaurant, on the beach or on an organized tour or fishing trip.

Mayo Resort, where gardens meet sea

Mayo Resort – Seririt – North Bali Boutique Resort.  ****

Mayo Resort is unique, a quiet little retreat for those seeking peace and tranquility, a beachfront resort with limited luxury accommodation. This is a get-away-from-it-all kind of place, ideal for honeymooners, and for a truly relaxing holiday or short break. The onsite restaurant offers a spectacular but practical location for weddings, family gatherings, private celebrations or corporate functions. Seating can be provided for up to 40  guests.

On the north coast of Bali, only 20 minutes from Lovina and 45 minutes from Pemuteran and Menjangan, Bali's premier diving destinations, and the West Bali National Park. Mayo Resort is just west of the town centre of Seririt.

Only the coral reefs and a headland of beach lie between you and the azure blue of the sea. With a shoreline stretching the entire length of the property, you will enjoy an intimate connection with the water. Because of the “rain shadow”, Mayo Resort enjoys an unusually sunny and dry microclimate, tempered by the cool sea breezes.

The sunsets are themselves good reason to be here; each day at Mayo you will be witness to a ritual that begins when the sun has fallen low enough to reflect off the sea and create a shimmering light that will raise your spirits and enhance your well-being, until the fiery red disc sinks below the horizon, the volcanos of East Java and the rolling hills of West Bali in the far distance.

Accommodation comprises 4 spacious, well-appointed studio rooms, each with balcony overlooking the generous pool (12m x 6m) set in lush gardens; a family apartment and a 2-bedroom villa in its own private setting. All rooms have unobstructed panoramic ocean views, and all have sufficient space for an additional bed if needed. Simply unpack, lie back and relax.
