Denpasar is the capital of Bali and is situated just north of Nusa Dua. This city isn’t known as a major holiday maker attraction when visiting Bali. Being that it is the capital, there are loads of Denpasar hotels to make a choice from for all budgets. For many budget travels, the hotels in Denpasar are an ideal place to remain as there are hundreds of inexpensive hotels and accommodation to be found. The service you will receive will be excellent, but the comforts will be very lacking. For the more discerning traveler there are lush places that you can stay at that offer 5 star facilities and services, but these are mostly occupied by business people.
The lack of any beaches or other tropical views restricts the Bali hotels in Denpasar to what they are able to give the tourist. Not having the gorgeous blue sea or lush rain forest as a view means that all the hotels here will only be able to provide views of the town. As much as the Balinese life-style is uniquely different and worth exploring, activities in Denpasar are limited and therefore the variety of accommodation is also limited. You won’t find any private villas with access to isolated beaches or be able to step out of a hotel in Denpasar onto a stunning white beach. If selecting to remain here in one of the luxurious Denpasar hotels and you want to experience all that Bali has to offer you are going to need to commute from the hotel to the site of your selected activity.
Only the top Denpasar hotels will have a website for you to order online and seeing as the city isn’t a popular tourist destination it is feasible to find accommodation throughout the year without booking in advance. The single time that you may find the hotels fully booked is if there is a major conference being held and then it could be hard to find something. If you do plan to spend a night or 2 here and want to stay in a luxury apartment then it is definitely a good idea to book early ahead. Backpackers and budget travels don’t have to worry as there is always room at the inn somewhere in Denpasar.
Booking into one of the top Denpasar hotels, all your rooms will be air conditioned and all room facilities working, but if going for a cheaper hotel it is best to inspect the room before paying for it to be sure the air-con works and the toilets are use able. The next thing that you need to make sure of is if you need to have a hot bath or shower, make sure that these facilities are available. Coming from a developed country we automatically assume that hot water is available, not so in Bali or anywhere in Indonesia. You may have to order the hot water tank to be switched on a couple of hours before you wish to take a bath at some of the more budget Denpasar hotels.
