Bali is the land of smoothie bowls, endless rice terraces, and floating breakfasts. Tourists from all over the world come to Bali for these Instagrammable and unforgettable experiences.
Use this guide to plan your vacation and find out exactly where you can get the perfect floating breakfast experience in Bali.
What Is A Floating Breakfast?
A floating breakfast is just that – a breakfast that floats on a tray in the pool alongside of you.
If the idea of a floating breakfast seems silly, know that Bali is extremely hot and humid. Being able to cool off in your infinity pool while sipping coffee and nibbling on a delicious 3-course breakfast doesn’t seem half bad if it means you can escape the heat.
Floating breakfasts are also an awesome way to pamper yourself. I highly recommend experiencing this at least once during your trip to Bali, Indonesia.
Where Can I Buy A Floating Breakfast In Bali?
Many Instagrammers and bloggers will have you believe that floating breakfasts are exclusive to certain resorts or hotels.
But the truth is, you can find floating breakfasts all over Bali. You just have to know where to look.
Below, I’ve detailed 23 different resorts and hotels in Bali that offer floating breakfasts.
Some of these accommodation options are 5-star luxury resorts while others are affordable guesthouses and villas. There is something for every traveler on this list.
Floating Breakfast In Ubud, Bali
Ubud seems to be the epicenter for floating breakfasts. Finding a hotel or resort that DOESN’T offer floating breakfasts is difficult.

This romantic tour will cost $295 USD per group (two people) but the experience is priceless.
Start your tour by indulging in a floating breakfast in a natural pool in the jungles of Ubud. Next, soar over the Ubud jungle on a Bali swing. Finally, enjoy a 90-minute couples massage.
This tour costs $106 USD per person and it will last for approximately 3 hours.
Begin with a floating breakfast in an infinity pool. The breakfast is served in courses, so you’ll be plenty full when you are done. Choose between a Western breakfast or a traditional Indonesian breakfast.
Next, fly 50 meters above Ubud in a hot air balloon. Here, you’ll get the best views of the infinite rice terraces below.
The final tour that I recommend costs $260 USD per group (two people).
