Me and my boyf land in bali on July 22nd and leave on Aug 8th.
So far we know that we are staying on the Gili Islands (Gili T) from July 28 - 31st (accommodation booked) and will be staying in Ubud for 5 nights from August 3rd-8th (fly on the 8th)
Soooooo we need some help and advice!
Where else would be good to visit and stay? By the sounds of it we should avoid Kuta? But where else can we stay that has gorgeous beaches/some nightlife (we want to party...but not with 18year olds!!!) and would be good to stay for 5 nights or so?
The main things we want to see are the Tanah Lot temple, Ku De Ta for dinner, Rock Bar etc.....so where else apart from Kuta would be good to stay to reach these?
Also how easy is it to get to Lombok from Gili T - is it worth going for a couple of nights?
Any advice/recommendations/tips would be really appreciated!!!!!!
thats sounds good plan
do you ever been in bali before?

I went to Bali just under two years ago now with my girlfriend (ex!) After Kutta we stayed at somewhere called Candidassa (sp). Its really quiet but it is a good couple place for 4/5 days to relax. There's a hostel there run by an Aussie guy and his wife, cant remember the name but it worked out about £10 a night each with breakfast. Guests were also allowed to use the pool down the road a little bit which was really nice. Worth checking out.
Thanks for the recommendation!
I know this post is a little old and you might already have planned your trip. But instead of staying in Kuta I would go for Seminyak. First of all because I think Seminyak has the kind of night life you are looking - that is where you find Ku De Ta - but also because Seminyak generally is a nicer place than Kuta. Tanah Lot will also be easier accessible from there.
For more inspiration to you Bali itinerary this might be useful: -snip-
It is very easy to reach Lombok from Gili T. There is several daily ferries and it is only a 5-10 minute boat ride. I never spend any time on Lombok myself though.
