Bali’s magic is undeniable, no matter where you stay. But the Indonesian island also has some of the coolest accommodations you’re ever going to see, from a luxury hotel in Uluwatu with an infinity pool perched 300 feet above the ocean, to an equally luxurious Airbnb with a water slide that drops into a private swimming pool, to a mountainous Airbnb in the remote village of Munduk that feels like it’s floating above the clouds.
Of course, Bali is also famous for its jungles, which means epic treehouses and treehouse Airbnbs like the Bird Hills Bamboo House in Amlapura and Scorpio House near Ubud. If you’re traveling around eastern Bali, there’s another bamboo-style eco-lodge in the Selat village that you should absolutely have on your radar — the Magic Hills Villa.

The Magic Hills Villa is a two-bedroom, two-bath Airbnb in a remote and verdant area that comes with 360-degree views of the Balinese jungle, including natural landmarks like Mount Agung and Bali’s iconic rice terraces. Guests get the entire property to themselves, including amenities such as beautifully appointed bedrooms with king-sized beds, hammocks, a private pool and hot tub, and an outdoor shower. The villa has no full kitchen but comes with a minibar, and there’s a restaurant on the premises where you can eat or have meals delivered to you.)
Despite being wonderfully remote, Magic Hills Villa is also a good base camp for touring the rest of Bali. It’s 90 minutes from the Bali Airport and two hours from Ubud. The superhost, a local villager, can also help arrange excursions to sites such as Besakih (Mother Temple), Lempuyang Temple (Gate to Heaven), Tirta Gangga Water Palace, and Taman Ujung Sukasada Kingdom Palace, as well as activities like trekking up Mount Batur at sunrise, scuba diving in Amed, river rafting on the Telaga Waja river, hiking through rice fields, chasing waterfalls, observing hindu ceremonies, taking yoga lessons, arranging photo shoots during golden hour, ATVing, zip-lining, and just about anything else on your Bali bucket list.
Price: $308 per night
