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.

While we were exploring Lombok, the Qunci Villa and Resort was the place I wanted to stay but it was booked out. However we went up for Happy hour and dinner. It is a beautiful place to stay, and very popular. Some great deals to be got online shop around. Located approximately 10 minutes drive from the central part of Senggigi and on the coastline, it would be a perfect place to relax for a few days and to set of the explore the Gilis and more of Lombok. Its about a 25 minute drive from where the speed boats are to get to the Gilis. The beach out the front was a little rough and some guys were trying to surf ( its wasn’t good) The Quar restaurant had impeccable service, quality food and the freshest cocktails. A beautiful place to enjoy a sunset. I inquired about a massage as I was really struggling to find a place in central Senggigi however it was approx. 500 000 Rupiah. I noted heaps of couples with smaller babies and children so it is somewhat child friendly I also noted 1 couple with a nanny ( I think they may have brought her with them or booked through the hotel) . I would definitely look this place it if you a planning to head to Lombok. For more details head to their website http://www.quncivillas.com/
We recently stayed at the Kebun Villas & Resort on Lombok. Its a nice place to base yourself to explore the island, to sit back and relax, set in a stunning garden, with the option of hotel style rooms ( I would ask for a ground floor pool side room ) and also villas ( we stayed in the Villa it was great). It is a well priced option for families( good deals through Booking.com) . The breakfast was adequate catering for a very international guest base, very friendly and attentive staff. The room service was very quick, great if you have hungry kids to feed, and the linen and beds very comfy. The bathrooms were lovely (although a fleeting bad smell from the drain system, which was promptly sorted out by maintenace staff and very common in Indonesia). Some of the non slip surfaces are a little dirty , however these are difficult to keep clean. Overall definately worth considering if you are planning a trip to Lombok. It is approxiately just over an hour from the International Airport, you can catch a boat to the Gilis ( approx 1 hour boat trip) off Senggigi Beach which is a 2 minute walk across the road. Or you can drive up the beautiful coast for approx 30 minutes and catch a speed boat to the Gilis ( about 10 minute trip) This was my preferred option as I get really sea sick.
If you are after a true island get away, getting back to basics? then have a look at Mu Bali, located on the Bukit cliff tops in Bingin. With amazing views of the ocean and a variety of thatched roof huts/ bungalows available. The French owners will do their very best to take care of you, with the yummiest communal dinners with a selection of salads , grilled fish and so much more each night at 7.45. You will make new friends, relax enjoy the most sensational views in Bali. Make sure you don’t leave any valuables around otherwise the cheeky monkeys which live close by may decide to reposes them. Only 30 minutes from Kuta and close to some of the most beautiful white sand beach’s of Dreamland and Padang Padang, a great location to relax , cruise and soak up the sun. Check out ‘Isha’ the open air villa AMAZING …
We recently stayed at Fraser Baye Luxury Bali Villas in Bingin and I would thoroughly recommend it to friends, families and any anyone wanting a relaxing Bali holiday. Starting from $240 per night for 7 people including breakfast, it is … Continue reading
This Villa is one of my favourites, it is new, beautifully furnished, a great size and an awesome price. Located in Gang Daksini in Batu Belig, it is close to some new great places including Watercress, Slippery Stone, Naughty Nuris, Think Pink Nail Salon and just a short drive from Bungalow Living in Berawa or the Petitenget area. They have 2 or 3 bedroom villas, a decent size pool and luxurious baths. I think you will be really surprised at the price too. For more details email Justin and Emily http://balisoulvillas.com/
