Beach resorts abound in beautiful Bali, a favorite tropical island holiday destination. The Indonesian isle is home to gorgeous stretches of jungle-backed, white-sand beaches and turquoise water, especially around the island's southern tip.

If this is a bucket list vacation, and you are celebrating an anniversary or on your honeymoon, this Indian Ocean paradise delivers romantic resorts with private swimming pool villas and butlers to cater to your every whim. But if you're on a family holiday with the kids and their grandparents and need something on the beach but more affordable, there are plenty of less pricy resorts to meet your needs.

Bali's main beach resort areas are around Seminyak and Nusa Dua. Both are at the southern end of the island. Jimbaran Bay, about 30 minutes from Seminyak Beach, is another area with some luxury resorts in a more secluded locale.

Plan your trip with our list of the best beach resorts in Bali.
