Here comes the sun, and boy do Bali has plenty of those. If you live in Bali, then you might be used to the blazing heat all the time. But that doesn’t mean we don’t need a nice dip every once in a while. The beach? Urgh, too much sand and tourist bus. The beach clubs? Good luck getting in, and those entrance fees are sometimes too much. So, these days, we find comfort in hotels that opens their pool for the public, and had great meal package as well. We choose some of the best one here.
