Kuta Beach, Bali, Indonesia
The vibe: Beachcombing boho chic
Picture this: Bali is a fine place to drop onto a chaise lounge, pull up a parasol, and sleep in the sun. That's the best way to detox from the all-night singing, dancing, and hooking-up action of Kuta Beach, in southern Bali. The cafés, bars, and nightclubs lining the streets of Kuta and Legian are the hub of hedonism for the young and the restless.
The crowd: Wall-to-wall buff bodies—many of them honed on the beaches of Australia—in this season's hot metallics, beads, and bangles.
The sundowner: Take your drink of choice and enjoy the term literally: Bali is famous for its sunsets. Watch the sun turn from bright orange to blood red before slipping into the horizon across the bay.
Come to bed: Take a break from the party and snuggle up at Kuta Paradiso Hotel Bali, with 243 deluxe rooms and suites overlooking the ocean. Sip cocktails by the pool and hang out in the piano lounge for upmarket evening entertainment.
