Travel in Style – How to make the most out of your Bali Villa

Have you already considered booking a private pool Bali villa instead of a hotel room for your next holiday?  Staying in a villa gives you a ‘home’ – a private home away from home on Bali Island instead of a room in a hotel – and that just makes all the difference! If it’s your first stay in a Bali villa and you don’t know what to expect, this article is for you.

Why choose a Bali villa over a hotel?

This may be the first question that arises. Here are the top 5 reasons:

  1. Privacy
  2. Space
  3. Service
  4. Experience
  5. Value for money

Let’s take a closer look at the main advantages of staying in a villa rather than a hotel:

  • An island home: privacy is key

We go to tropical islands to relax, enjoy the beach, surround yourself in nature and soak up the exotic environment. Having a private island home, tucked away in a secluded lane, away from crowds and noises, is just wonderful! You don’t have to worry about sharing the pool with someone else or waking up in time for breakfast. Even if you want to walk around in your pyjamas, that’s totally fine. After a full day spent outdoors, you will come home to a living room instead of a hotel room.

Villa Finder Tip for your first stay: It’s your villa; it’s your style. Think about the design of the villa you want to stay in. We also have our personal favourites, if you are curious. Check out Villa Finder’s favourite villas in Bali

  • Personal assistance

Furthermore, the services at a villa are very different from those in a hotel. Everything gets more personalized, without being intrusive of your privacy, that is! Every villa comes with a dedicated team of staff to look after the villa and its guests and usually, the villa manager is stand-by 24/7.

Villa Finder Tip for your first stay: The staff at the villas are very friendly and accommodative. Leaving some tips for them, while not compulsory, is very much appreciated.

  •  Extra services


Balinese massage and more in the comfort of your own home

When staying in a villa, you can also opt to get a personal chef to come over to the villa and cook up a delicious meal. You get to enjoy spa treatments in the comfort of your own holiday home. Families with kids can make use of professional nanny services without kids having to leave the compound of the villa. Perfectly safe!

Villa Finder Tip for your first stay: Think of anything you may need: massage, BBQ dinner, private chauffeur, etc. You can even have the fridge stocked up before you arrive at the villa.

  • The experience

Relax in the bedroom, the living room, the garden – wherever you want

Most villas are hidden away in small gangs and secluded lanes, unlike hotels which are usually found along busy roads. Each villa reflects its owner’s personal style, too. Hence, every stay is a unique experience.

Villa Finder Tip for your first stay: Arrange airport pickup to make sure you reach the villa as not all taxi drivers know where the villa is.

  • How about the price tag?

This might come as a surprise, but staying in a villa may even be cheaper than staying in a hotel. Especially when travelling with the family or together with your best friends, the price of a 4 or 5 bedroom villa is, in fact, a whole lot cheaper than renting 5 separate hotel rooms. You’ll be having your own little party in your private pool villa! Then, think about all the money you’d be spending on hotel food. Much more cost-effective to stock up that fridge with loads of snacks and cold drinks to last for the entire day.

Villa Finder Tip for your first stay: The bigger the group, the more value-for-money the villa is.
