Free-flowing cocktails, all-you-can-eat dining, daily spa treatments... the sky’s the limit at these Bali resorts. 

If breakfast buffets and cocktail hours have your heart skipping a beat, then these all-inclusive Bali resorts will have it set positively aflutter. Checking into an all-inclusive hotel or resort is undeniably one of the best, and most delicious, ways to take a flop-and-drop escape to a new level. Families will enjoy the convenience of having mealtimes already sorted, couples will revel in free-flow drinks and adults-only festivities - and everyone will love the indulgence. Some resorts extend all-inclusive packages to daily spa treatments and activities too.

Find our round up of the best all-inclusive Bali hotels and resorts, plus escapes that offer all-inclusive rates. 

Meliã Bali 

The unofficial motto of Meliã Bali: whatever you want, whenever you want it. From round-the-clock room service at no extra charge and all-day free-flow cocktails to poolside snacks, nothing is too much to ask for here - and everything is on the menu. Days can start at El Patio Restaurant & Coffee Shop, which offers one of Bali's most extensive market-style buffet breakfasts, loved for its French pastries and vast transcontinental selection, which caffeine-coveters can pair with coffee made from locally sourced beans handpicked by farmers in Kintamani. El Patio also serves lunch, and there are five restaurants to choose from when it comes to dinner. Meliã Bali is not all about food though: keep yourself entertained with unlimited use of the basketball, tennis, volleyball, badminton and futsal courts.   

Ayodya Resort Bali 

Five-star beachfront bliss is only made better with the all-inclusive offering at the newly reopened Ayodya Resort Bali in Nusa Dua. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and free-flow drinks (alcoholic and non) are included along with a complimentary minibar, restocked daily, plus select resort activities. Embark on an international culinary tour, starting at Waterfall Restaurant for a breakfast buffet, followed by beachside BBQ at Ayodya Beach Club & Grill, and traditional Japanese sashimi for dinner. A signature iced tea is the perfect complement to the balmy Bali weather.  

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali 

As one of Bali’s favourite family resorts, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali hits the sweet spot when it comes to keeping all ages happy. Unsurprisingly, this hotel, which shares the same name as the Swiss ice cream juggernaut, has sugary surprise or two in store. Half-board and all-inclusive packages include not only dining, but a daily chocolate hour, where ice cream, desserts, truffles, a chocolate fountain, churros and petit fours are all for the taking. Live cooking stations whip up local specialties and Italian-inspired pastas, and the youngest guests can tuck into specially devised dishes and kid-friendly menus. The pirate-themed kids’ club here is something else, so youngsters are well entertained while grown-ups enjoy a child-free feed. 

Spa Village Resort Tembok Bali  

Leave the kids at home for this one, because Spa Village Resort Tembok Bali is the ultimate adults-only and all-inclusive haven. Here, daily breakfast, lunch and dinner is served at Wantilan, where a focus on seasonal, organic local produce and indigenous fruits and flavours complements the resort’s holistic approach to wellness. And what’s a wellness resort without spa treatments? Happily, these are included, too. Unlock a deeper level of relaxation with a 50-minute massage that uses local products and traditional Balinese healing practices. 

Samabe Bali Suites & Villas  

Nothing is forgotten at Samabe Bali Suites & Villas, especially if you take up the all-inclusive upgrade. This Nusa Dua clifftop retreat is made all the dreamier with their 'anytime, anywhere’ breakfast with a paddle board of freshly squeezed juices, eggs benedict, smoked salmon, berry-topped waffles and chocolate tarts. A la carte lunch and dinner is available in-villa for a romantic touch, and free-flow cocktails are on from 5pm until midnight. Upgrading takes the tough decisions out of your days, so you are free to make use of the complimentary non-motorised water sports, including catamaran, kayaking and snorkelling.

MERUSAKA Nusa Dua 

Bali’s MERUSAKA Nusa Dua does all-inclusive the right way, across four onsite restaurants.
