5 reasons why Seminyak Villas are so popular with Australians

There is nothing new about Australians travelling to bali for their holidays, but what is new is their preference for Villas over hotels when it comes to their accommodation. This trend is on the increase and is increasing by about 5-10 % year on year.

The reasons for the rise in the popularity of villa accommodation, especially in very popular tourist hot spots like Seminyak are many but following are five of the main reasons why most Australian families, couples and groups gravitate towards villas.
# 1: Villas offer a level of privacy that your simply can’t get at hotels. Forget about sharing the pool with other people or having to queue up at the breakfast buffet bar with the rest of the herd. Villa living is all about maintaining a level of privacy where you are the centre of attention and not hordes of other guests.
# 2: If you are renting a 3 or 4 bedroom villa and you are coming with another family or with a group of friends, it tends to work out so much cheaper if you were to compare apples with apples. Most luxury villas in Seminyak are around the $500 per night mark and if you spread the cost over 5 people it works out to be $100 per nigh each. This is really good value and works out to be more economical than an equivalent hotel.
# 3: Nearly all villas come with their own staff of house keepers, chefs, butlers, security and even drivers. This means you do not have to lift a finger; everything is done for you. You certainly don’t get this level of service or attention in a hotel – unless you were paying some serious dollars.
# 4: Villas are mostly child friendly and come fully equipped with high chairs, cots, pool fences as well as nannies. This makes it a lot easier for parents who stress out about travelling with toddlers. Everything you could possible want for children are stock standard in most villas and if they don’t have it, then generally they can be organised for you before you arrive.
# 5: The area of Seminyak is the tourist hot spot in Bali. It’s known world wide for it’s fabulous bars, restaurants, cafes as well as day spas and shops. This is why so many holiday makers choose the areas of Seminyak, Petitenget, Oberoi all the way up to Legian as their preferred location. Staying a villa here means that you do not have to travel far for dinner or enjoying some of the nightlife and restaurants. Essentially, Seminyak is just the place to be and be seen. So if you have your villa here it is extremely handy.
So, make sure next time your thinking about a holiday in bali take a look at our range of Villas in Seminyak. There are so many to choose from and they all priced to appeal to all budgets and tastes. all we can say is that if you stay in a villa the chances of you ever staying in a hotel again are remote.

Struggling with all the ‘000’s on the Indonesian Rupiah ? 

I found this image on one of the Bali Facebook pages and it seems really popular with newbies to Bali, when they are getting used to the currency. Perhaps Print it off and laminate it to take out in your wallet or save the image to your phone, to use when shopping up a storm or paying for a taxi when the notes all just seem a little overwhelming.  

 

Ear plugs are sometimes a really good idea when travelling in Bali.

Consider travelling with ear plugs, or grab some from the Apotek ( chemist ). Bali is a vibrant yet noisy island and if you really want to enjoy some sleep then you may benefit greatly having these on hand. From motorbikes, nosey neighbours, late arrivals /early departures from the hotel, construction sites, night club base, aeroplanes overhead ( louder in Alang Alang thatched roof villas and hotels) fireworks, roosters, dogs, cats, insects ( more so on the Bukit and Ubud), calls to prayer, geckos or partners snoring (after a few too many bintangs) these little ear plugs can be your saviour. After all everyone loves a good night sleep. 686
