I usually go there between may-july. Perfect weather, not hot since getting the benefit from australian winter.

Around this quarter of the year, usually it will rain a lot due to monsoon season.

Nevertheless, if you're looking for peace and quiet, I would recommend you to travel to further ends of Bali such as Lovina (if you don't mind) where accommodation is definitely cheaper. It is far enough from the crazy, noisy, bustling nightlife of Kuta and its vicinity and yet also not as expensive as the quieter counterparts such as Seminyak, Nusadua and Jimbaran.

Ubud

Agree...further up is quieter. i love UBUD though.. It's so cultural, serene, peaceful, And I always looking forward to waking up to different kinds of birds' sound in the early morning, walking through the rice fields, learn balinese cooking, etc

I was just in Bali for three weeks (for work mostly). The rainy season has indeed started, but generally it is not impossible to get around. There are still nice - hot - days, for example north of Gunung Agung volcano. There you have some very nice places for snorkling/diving - really worth it, for example in Tulamben.
I really recommend Ubud, even if you don't like all the tourists at first sight - give it a few hours and you'll realize what a lovely place it is. It is also very easy to visit it on your own because there is so much to do: art galleries, museums, the monkey forest, all kinds of guided tours (including adventurous ones)...
Hope this helps.
Karen

Thanks Karen,

I think I will most likely go to Ubud.
But have decided to go sometime in Apr / May where it won't rain so much.
And I need some peace & quiet & perhaps do a : quote Elizabeth Gilbert " everybody has a love affair in Bali". " :-D
Kidding...

Thank you though for your suggestion.

Have a great day!

Farlene
