Accommodation in Bali:

Try theres booking sites for some great accommodation deals.  There are so many homestays, hostels, hotels, resorts and villas in Bali, you’re spoilt for choice.  I personally would recommend staying in Seminyak for nice restaurants and its slightly less chaotic than Kuta.  Or if you want to reduce travel times to dive sites by about 30 minutes in each direction, you may want to look for places to stay in Sanur.
