It will come as no surprise to Bali lovers that the island has topped the charts again in 2024, ranking highly across the board.

The TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards are arguably the most impactful travel and tourism awards in the world.

Based on reviews and recommendations by real travelers and affirmed by travel experts from TripAdvisor, tourists can rely on the awards to help them plan their next big adventure. 

TripAdvisor says, “We award Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best to experiences and attractions with a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from our community over a 12-month period.”

They add, “Each winner has passed our rigorous trust and safety standards. Fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best, signifying the highest level of excellence in travel.”

Of course, a Bali hotel will feature among the top 25 hotels in the world in 2024. The simply breathtaking Padma Resort Ubud came in an impressive tenth place in the best hotels in the world category. 

The blissfully relaxing hotel and resort features 149 rooms and one of the most impressive infinity pools in Bali.

The whole resort overlooks the lush green bamboo forests of Gianyar Regency and guests rave about the hot tub, swim-up bar, and the generous hospitality of the staff. 

Coming in at 14th place in the top 25 is the Adiwana Suweta Hotel in Ubud, Described as hiding in plain sight the Adiwana Suweta is a little-known hotel compared to the likes of Padma Resort and is certainly worth putting on the Bali bucket list for 2024.

Guests love the private butler service and the breakfast-in-bed experience. 

Nusa Penida’s Kelingking Beach has also received a Traveler’s Choice Award. The iconic clifftop vista came in a respectable 16th place in the world’s top 25 beaches as voted for by travelers.

Kelingking Beach is perhaps the most famous landscape in Bali Province. The site welcomes tens of thousands of travelers every week, and those brave enough can take the steep hike down to the coastline. 

Tourists are frequently reminded not to swim at Kelingking Beach as the strong waves and even stronger undercurrent can quickly drag people out to sea.

Kelingking Beach was ranked as the second-best in Asia in 2024, narrowly losing out to Radhanagan Beach in India. 


When it comes to day trips and excursions, Bali really does do it best. The Best of Ubud Day Tour came in third place for the world’s best overall travel experiences.

Ubud is Bali’s arts and culture capital and serves as the gateway to Bali’s heartland for tourists.

Guests can experience the famous Bali swings, take a walk around the Tegalalang Rice Terraces, and even sample the island’s famous coffee straight from the source. 


Whether staying in Ubud or anywhere else on the island, it is highly recommended that tourists take a day trip around Ubud and the surrounding villages to really get a feel for the culture and landscape of the island away from the beach resorts. 

The Bali tourism sector will be pleased to see the island’s tourism offering featured so prominently at the most influential travel awards in the world.

The news comes as an affirmation that despite a rise in badly-behaved tourists in 2023, issues with traffic congestion, and waste management, tourists can see past these resolvable issues and still want to travel around the globe to visit the Island of the Gods. 


Officials are targeting to welcome 7 million international tourists in 2024, and no doubt Bali’s big wins at the TripAdvisor awards will help convince even more travelers to book their trips.

TripAdvisor users must be tripping on some medications who vote dirty and polluted Bali as a top destination. The mental gymnastics one must do to not see the things wrong with it..

But hey, the more fools that go to a garbage dump, the less of them will overcrowd actually decent and clean places, keeping prices lower. Godspeed, everyone go to Bali, it's a paradise for all of you.

Indonesia could be named in future as leading nation in geo energy sector too. In Iceland scientists are experimenting with volcano drilling to use magma for energy supply purposes.
