Hi All,

I will be traveling for work in Thailand and thought of taking a 3-4 day trip to Bali for some relaxation. I will be there around July 11th. I was thinking of a resort (where I could just stay there relax and still have activities - like yoga, a cooking class, pools, etc) and was wondering if anyone would have a recommendation for a solo female traveler? I would mainly like spa time, good food and a little shopping if I did decide to go offsite. Since I have so little time would there be a specific area recommended and a nice resort or hotel (not over run by kids) that would be between $100-$200 USD recommended?

Thanks in advance for your insight and advice!

Kimberly

If you're in Thailand, why not do the same thing in Thailand?
Plenty of resorts there offering the things you require.
Various Islands or Hua Hin down to Phuket (and surrounding areas).

Hi Andrew,

Because this will be my third trip to Thailand and I have been to Phuket on my last trip there. I was thinking of going somewhere different since I will be in that part of the world.

I'm of the same opinion as Andrew I'm afraid - a 5 hour flight to go from one tropical beach to another seems a bit pointless.

I am not really a beach person, Was thinking more about the lushness of Ubud. But you do make a good point about the flight. I was thinking of experiencing some place different.

You could try Malaysia, which would save on flight time.
Pangkor or one of the other Islands maybe.
