A stay at the Bubble hotel comes with stunning views of the Indian Ocean: the perfect accompaniment to your morning cup of coffee when you wake up from an excellent night’s sleep. Set on Nyang Nyang Beach, each bubble offers a 360 panoramic view of the surrounding settings, including that crystal clear water and seriously soft sand. The beach is quite isolated from the main road, which means a short hike (or drive) down from a clifftop.

Each bubble comes with a king size bed as well as outdoor bathroom facilities with greenery all around. If you’re looking to do some stargazing, you’ll love the Bubble Hotel.

West Bali is one of the island’s lesser-visited spots, which means fewer tourists and a far more authentic experience.
