The welcoming nature of the Balinese, the incredible value for money ratio for almost anything the island has to offer (particularly accommodation, food and spas) the unique, vibrant and alive culture, the physical beauty of the island, and the year-round pleasant climate make Bali a place regarded by many visitors as a “Top 100 Favorite Place” on Sullivan's List. ACCOMMODATION : Most famous is the Amandari Resort. If you want to experience luxury Bali, spend then a night at Amandari located in the village of Kedewatan, on the fringe of Bali’s cultural capital, Ubud. Perched on an escarpment high above the winding Ayung River gorge, this resort follows the design of a traditional Balinese village. Pebbled walkways link the thatched-roof suites, each of which has its own walled garden.
