Seeking alternative area of Bali to stay

My wife and I stay in Bali 2-3 times per year and have done so for years. Whilst our favorite area is Seminyak we have stayed at Legian, Jimbaran Bay, and Ubud but have only visited the likes of Canguu, Sanur, Lombok, Lembongan and Nusa Dua. We have booked for 2 weeks in October and have booked one week's accommodation in Seminyak. Any suggestions where we stay for the 2nd week??

We particularly like Sanur. It's not far from anywhere, has plenty of good restaurants and would certainly be cheaper than Nusa Dua and of course the Kuta area.

Maybe somewhere completely different - right at the north of Bali - Lovina.

Very peaceful.

Things to do, dolphin watching ( very early morning start ), Git Git Waterfalls, the hot springs and swimming pool ( said to be good for the skin ). Watch the fishing boats bring in their catches and sell the fish on the beach. On the way there or back Bedugal.

You could go to a completely new area like the aforementioned Lovina, Amed or even more obscure and secluded like Menjangan Island.

Our trip (May) is:

-Lovina (Villa Lagu) one week

-Ubud (nothing booked yet) 3 nights

-Seminyak (Amadea Resort) 2 nights

-Gili Trawangan (nothing booked yet, but will probably book The Beach House or Vila Ombak) 4 nights

-back to Lovina for another week

We love traveling around a bit, but also want to relax a lot....

Depends on what you are looking for.

Our trip in May will include a short stay in Labuan Bajo. Basically there you hire a boat for a few days and stay on it. Doing things like seeing the Komodo Dragons, bats flying out at night, snorkelling and swimming.

As always our trip ends in Candidasa. Really nice accomodation options in a quite town with lots of things to do.
