Just booked a 2 week holiday to the Novotel Benoa, chose the area based on travel agents recommendation on Nusa Dua, but wasn't keen on the whole gated community feel so decided to go for Benoa as this seemed a bit more lively than Nusa Dua and had good restaurants near to the hotel. However now I am researching Bali (Which I wish I'd done more of before booking!!) I don't know if we are well located for exploring the rest of Bali. We don't mind taking time to travel to other parts for days out/nights out, but how expensive would this be? I was thinking of visiting Ubud, Sanur, Seminyak, Legian, Kuta. Also are we well placed to do these trips?
