Grab that bikini, Bali hotel prices plummet!

Lauren Croft

If you haven’t been to Bali, are you even an Aussie? Well, if you haven’t, now is apparently one of the best times to go.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that hotel prices in the tropical paradise would soar over the cold Aussie winter months, but according to new research, the opposite is the case.

TripAdvisor searched 200 sites for the latest and lowest hotel prices (you’re welcome) and compared hotel pricing data over the past month. And guess what?

Hotel rates in Denpasar will decrease over $50 per night on average – that’s a 21 per cent saving in August compared to July.

So if you’ve been saving your dollarydoos for a trip to escape winter – here are the price deets for you. In July, the average nightly rate in Denpasar, Bali was $274 – and in August, it will be $215. And all those savings can buy a whole lotta’ cocktails in Bali.

If you still aren’t sure which hotel to plant yourself in for a few sun-filled days, TripAdvisor has listed five top-rated hotels, each one with atleast a four-star rating or better. Each hotel is below the August nightly average, and are sorted by their traveller rankings:

1. Maison Aurelia Sanur, Bali – by Préférence 

Average nightly hotel price for August on TripAdvisor: $123

1a. Maison Aurelia Sanur, Bali - by Préférence

2. ARTOTEL Sanur 

Average nightly hotel price for August on TripAdvisor: $108

2c. ARTOTEL Sanur

3. Parigata Resort & Spa
