Wouldn't recommend an all inclusive if they exist. So much to see and do on the island, food included.

I don't think all-inclusive is common. Unlike Caribbean counterpart where you just stay in a resort and do nothing, Bali is more experiential - getting out, exploring, visiting places, etc so all-inclusive is very rare. Plus, everything on the island is super cheap..tons of food options...so yea...

We went to Bali for our honeymoon. Did a 6 day tour around the island, then did a 3 day tour to Java for overnight hiking and then finished off at a resort: 5 days at Samabe. Would 100% recommend.

We honeymooned in Bali and I looked into all-inclusive options while researching the trip. There were a couple but the options looked very pale in comparison to non-all-inclusive options, especially since we were used to the calibre of resort from Mexico. We didn't miss that though, inexpensive food options were plentiful and we spent half the trip exploring anyways. Would recommend using Ubud as a launch pad for exploring - drive distance is shorter from here and the town itself is cool to explore.

If you're interested in mega resorts, Nusa Dua area has beautiful hotels with great beaches, but you'll pay a lot for food/drinks here. You can take a cheap taxi for a short ride to restaurants outside the Nusa Dua area. We were cheap, so we stayed just outside the Nusa Dua hotel strip ($60/nt) and every morning we would eat our free, amazing hot breakfast, walk to Circle K, buy beer and drinks, walk to the Nusa Dua beach and hang there all day. The last few days we splurged and stayed at the RIMBA by AYANA and lived it up there ($300/nt) - no regrets.

EDIT: add sentence about Ubud

They don't really do all inclusive there. Usually breakfast is always included with most hotels; the quality will depend upon the caliber of the hotel. You will have to figure out what you want to do to determine the ideal hotel. I stayed at Ayana resort Bali which is in Jimbaran and it was nice plus it has Rock Bar for great food and drink on the ocean.

UBUD will be the most expensive because its a tourist trap. Stay somewhere outside of there.

If you had one week...what would you recommend in Bali? Did anyone go to Mount Bromo? Anyone recommend which places to stay? Which airline did you use to get there?

You really don’t need all inclusive.

You will probably find plenty of “half board” & “full board” options. Half board could be breakfast and/or lunch - full board can be all 3 or just breakfast and dinner. There are examples of when they may include 1 alcoholic beverage w dinner or wine.

If you’ve been to the elaborate all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean (Jamaica - DR - Mexico) you will likely be disappointed elsewhere (with only a few examples that are the exception to this rule).

We did a 3 day tour for Mount Bromo morning sunrise hike and also the Ijen Blue Flame overnight hike.

Amazing to do while in Indonesia.

Having said that, if you only have 1 week, that is half your time removed from Bali. I personally would not fly from North America to Bali for 1 week, unless you are already in that area of the world.

Planning on doing Thailand and Indonesia. So Bangkok, Chang Mai and a beach (13 to 14 days) and then a week in Indonesia. I've been googling and there is a lot to see...I was thinking Bali, Mount Bromo and not sure if there is time to do Gili Islands? Are those beaches nicer or the same as the ones in Thailand? We are not hikers (wife and 11 year son) so I was reading you can take a jeep up to Mount Bromo? Ijen Blue Flame looks pretty cool but I see people had to wear masks? How strong are the sulphur smells? How hard is the Ijen Blue Flame hike?

I would say then Ijen Blue Flame is not for your family. Sulphur smell is hit or miss depending on weather and wind moreso than anything else. We were lucky for us.

Hiking was OK, not too bad but if you are not hikers, don't bother.

Mount Bromo is probably better for your family but even then afterwards there was a hike to the crater (if you wanted) or pay someone to get on a horse etc. There are 1 overnight trips to Java to do Mount Bromo from Bali so that may be your best bet. And yes you can take a jeep up the mountain but it is a terrible ride and the car fumes were terrible and crowded. But better than walking.

As for beaches, we are not beach people personally but we found Nusa Dua beaches decent.

We only visited Bali and Java in Indonesia. We had 13 days to do it all.

And yes you can take a jeep up the mountain but it is a terrible ride and the car fumes were terrible and crowded. But better than walking. Did you fly from Canada straight to Indonesia? Which airline and what time of the year did you go? I read that it can get cold at Mount Bromo?

As for beaches, we are not beach people personally but we found Nusa Dua beaches decent.

Thanks...how would you rank your top things to do in Indonesia? Where did you stay? and how much did it cost? Did you book tours?

So you hiked up Mount Bromo? How long did that take? Or if we take the jeep and not the horses how long is that hike? Just trying to see if its doable for us?
