Want a mix of beach/shit to do in Late Sept/Oct/Nov - happy to travel outside of Europe. Was considering SE Asia but mixed weather across Vietnam/Laos afaik? No all inclusive resorts…..

Neither of us drive (nan) so need good transport too.

Yeah, whereabouts you staying?

We did Ubud and Denpasar, Ubud was miles better. We had one of the garden suites here - https://www.comohotels.com/en/comoshambhalaestate - and it's still one of my favourite places I've stayed.

Yeah - Check out Canggu - chilled beach vibe and not too touristy (like Kuta and Seminyak). We stayed at https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g311298-d10311877-Reviews-Theanna_Eco_Villa_and_Spa-Canggu_North_Kuta_Bali.html - highly recommend it. Free shuttle on your beck and call 24/7. Also check out the Como Canggu, just opened.

Check out Bambu Indah in Ubud - very special place owned by a jewellery designer, made entirely out of Bamboo and old teak houses and close enough to the action in Ubud center. https://princeoftravel.com/blog/review-bambu-indah-ubud
