Here are the top 5 hotels below 30 USD per night for 2 people:

Located just 25 minutes away from the famous sunset beach Pantai Batu Belig, Favehotel is one of the favorites for a romantic stay.

Possibly one of the most spacious hotel rooms in Bali for below 30 USD/night. Taman Ayu is a traditional Balinese style resort located in the heart of Seminyak with a large size swimming pool. It offers Superior rooms (from 26 USD/night) to spacious private villas (up to 80 USD/night)— everything for your needs!

It is easy to access good restaurants, pubs, and bars from this resort. Additionally, it takes only 10 minutes to walk down to Seminyak beach.

Superior rooms in Sense Sunset is sized at 21 square meters and it is priced at about 22 USD! Beds are absolutely comfortable and soft to sleep in.

Though the swimming pool is not as big as the one in Taman Ayu (above), it has nice shades to help you and your partner get away from the sun.

The exterior of the hotel is colorful and striking — definitely compliments the name of the hotel. This contemporary hotel is 2 km from both Seminyak Beach and 3-D art exhibits at DMZ Museum, yet your stay is inclusive of a complimentary area shuttle!

“The word Alea, which means ‘to surpass your expectations’ in Sanskrit was chosen to inspire our commitment in providing you with the very best.”

This 3-star hotel prices its rooms from 22USD – 32 USD. Hotel rooms are quiet and clean. It is also said that the restaurant in Alea Hotel serves up really great food!

Additionally, it is located 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak’s tourist’s attractions. It is easy to find though it does not have a nice view of paddy fields, beaches or mountains. The poolside lounge itself is tranquil and the additional open-air lounge outside of its restaurant is a good place to have some drinks with your partner after a long day of adventure.
