Melia Benoa or bali tropic?

I am planning on vistinf Bali in Sept this year for my honeymoon.

There are so many wonderful hotels and great reviews I am at a loss on what to do!!

Bali Tropic does look great and the price is unbelievably great but I'm worried about things to do in evening.

Are we close to restaurants (even though it AI we want to eat out more than in) and bars. if not then how cheap & safe are the taxis to nearest areas.

The other option is to got Melia Benoa which again is AI but is this just same as above??

The other choice is to go room only and eat out all the time, just worried what the cost will be mainly on alcohol (not that I'm a raving alcoholic or anything but on my honeymoon I want a cocktail or 6!!) if we do go AI this would be covered??

So many choices!! If anyone has come back recently please shed some light on surrounding areas and restaurants, bars, things to do, everything really!! Thanks

I haven't stayed at either of those Hotels, but have stayed at Benoa, at the Aston Bali. We are going again in September our friends are staying at Kind Villa Bintang and we are trying Ramada Resort.

As for the restaurants there are heaps in Benoa (we tried a different one every night). The prices are unbelievably cheap, much cheaper than the Hotel Prices.

Have you considered the Bali Club Mirage which offers an all inclusive price (3 meals per day + beverages), I suppose the only trouble is you are a bit tied then.

Also most Hotels offer free service to Kuta, as there are some wonderful restaurants there.Try looking at Asiarooms.com

Hope this helps

Have a lovely Honeymoon

i am going to ramada in two weeks so will post a report when i get back.

We normally do all incluxive , but the prices in bali are cheap so we thought we would just go room only
