Just like purchasing real estate, accommodations are all about location. Try to choose accommodations near the places you want to visit. Seeing as most travelers view accommodations as a sanctuary for rest after a long day of enjoying the sights, sounds, and scents of Bali, the best accommodations are located close to the town and beach, yet secluded enough to provide rest and privacy.
