Herbert Ypma, who has been described as the "king of cool," publishes a guide for jet setters to the world's most hip and stylish properties.
Bali, long accustomed to being named among the most popular tourist destinations with the best hotels, is also included on Ypma's top 20 hip hotels from his long list of favorite holiday haunts released on May 29, 2005 by timesonline.co.uk
In fact, Bali managed to land 2 properties in his prestigious list of top 20 all-time favorites.
Here's the two Bali hotels that Ypma simply adores:
The Bale – Nusa Dua Bali
The ultra-contemporary minimalist design of The Bale and its 20 bungalows surrounded by 70 ponds and pools clearly won Ypma's heart for this Nusa Dua property with an almost cult-status among veteran Bali visitors.

Puri Ganesha – Singaraja, Bali
Sharing this "secret" with his readers, Ypma thinks the series of bungalows run by Diana von Cranach and her Balinese husband are a study in absolute indulgence where "the only rule is: there are no rules."
