Staying in a villa in North Bali might not be people’s ideal Bali vacation. Why? When you think of Bali, you’ll probably think of a crowded vacation place with many clubhouses and restaurants throughout their coastlines. While that stereotype is not far from the truth, it can only be applicable to some parts of Bali. Particularly, the Near-Middle to Southern parts of the island hosts an array of wonderful entertainment options for an average tourist. Living in one of the top holiday destinations sounds lots of fun, but you can find yourself bored and tired with the hustles and bustles of Denpasar, or the rowdy clubs and restaurants located in Canggu or Kuta.
If you ever feel that way, then why not freshen up and head to the lesser-known and lesser populated part of the island? Think of it as a vacation spot from your vacation spot, as these places offer a completely different experience. The particular area that we are talking about today is North Bali, hidden behind the mountains located in the central part of the island. If you ever want to go there but are confused about where to stay, then we’ve got you covered. In this post, we’ll be talking about villas in North Bali! Yep, exactly the accommodation you need for a private getaway with friends or loved ones. Here are Villas in North Bali for your dream getaway from the bustling south!

Why North Bali?
North Bali is probably the most secluded part of Bali, with its borders mainly being mountains. But that also spells privacy for you who wants seclusion from the fast-paced world. Definitively speaking, it stretches wide from Bondalem to Seririt. It is mainly bordered by Kintamani and Amed to their Southeast, Gilimanuk to their west, and Bedugul to their south.
The main attraction of North Bali resides in Lovina Beach, a black sand coastline covering a large part of the area. A soothing and quiet beach is a matching fit for your quiet escape. It is a great diving spot where you can observe and interact with dolphins. If not, then the scenic and picturesque beach will keep you satiated and content.
Other than Lovina beach, there is also the old city of Singaraja. This city is North Bali’s center, and in fact, it used to be Bali’s administrative center. Due to its relative proximity to Indonesia’s inner sea and ease of access for sailors of old, the place was a bustling trading port. You can see the remnants of various peoples who have left their mark in Indonesian history, with Arab villages and European-style buildings popping here and there in the city.

Relaxing spa villas
North Bali is also home to a slew of relaxation and spa villas. A particular attraction that you should visit here is the Hot Springs of Banjar or Air Panas Banjar, a perfect destination for a weekend trip to rejuvenate yourself.
Lastly, if you look at the South of North Bali you can find a range of natural/outdoor activities. This mainly includes canyoning activities within the many waterfalls in the area, such as the Blue Lagoon waterfall, Aling-Aling Waterfall, and Gitgit Waterfall among countless others.
All in all, North Bali is your ideal place for a truly private retreat. If you are interested, let’s also look at some villa accommodations in the North Bali area!
