Indonesia’s most popular island is famous the world over for its rolling waves for surfing, fascinating sites for diving, adrenalin pumping water sports, tantalizing dining experiences and pulsating nightlife. This is Bali. Beach resort accommodation can be found all along the beachfront, while the beaches themselves are always buzzing with activity. Though this tropical island has warm weather all year around, to get the very best Bali has to offer head to the Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa.


The biggest attraction in Tanjung Benoa is naturally the beach, quieter and less crowded than Kuta and Seminyak. The former fishing village has retained much of its charm from a bygone time. It is located at the very tip of the Nusa Dua Peninsula and enjoys wide reaching ocean views on both sides. There are local markets, temples and shops to explore but in recent times it has been gaining popularity in leaps and bounds as a favourite dining area for tourists. Options range from star class hotel restaurants, even a French fine dining restaurant and a wide array of standalone restaurants and bars lining the noteworthy Jalan Pratama Road to the traditional ‘warung’ or small family owned shops and cart vendors you will encounter lining the streets. Restaurants, eateries and bars have sprung up everywhere you look and all the stops have been pulled out to make for the very best Bali dining experience. A number of restaurants offer free transport to go with complementary drinks, snacks and Wi-Fi.
