As one of Indonesia’s most beautiful islands, it’s bustling with tourism and home to some of the friendliest people on the planet. Compared to many other destinations, it’s also extremely affordable.
Many pet owners hesitate to book holidays to destinations like Bali in case they have to leave their furry friends behind or can’t find pet-friendly accommodation. To help, we’ve curated a list of the best pet-friendly hotels and resorts in Bali so you and your four-legged friend can enjoy the wonders of paradise together.
