Bali is one of the top tourist destinations in the world – especially for Australians. Because of this, hotel accommodations – along with everything else – in major cities like Seminyak can be quite expensive during the high season. Beachfront properties seem to be the hotels of choice, but as you would guess – those rank among the most expensive, often costing several hundred dollars per night.
