Bali is a vibrant place and tourism continues to grow by leaps and bounds, but one problem that the area has always faces is both affordable flights and affordable accommodations. That’s been changing a great deal recently.
Aston International has recently opened its fourth fave hotel on Bali out of fifteen they have in Indonesia. While these ultra clean, stylish rooms appeal to some, many visitors to Bali are looking for more out of their accommodations, which is why villas continue to grow in popularity.
Hotels such as the Fave hotel offer all the amenities of home, a courtyard swimming pool, and a dining room/coffee shop. The trouble is it’s difficult for facilities like this to compete against Bali villas that not only have their own private swimming pool, they also have their own private cooks and chefs to prepare their meals for them in the comfort of their villa, whether they are entertaining or just enjoying a quiet evening of relaxation. The cooks/chefs are prepared to whip up local cuisine or something you’re craving from home.
Balinese villas have continued to grow in popularity for a number of reasons. They can be found throughout the island of Bali so regardless of what the traveller is seeking they can meet their needs, including quiet, off the beaten track villas that are a great place to re-energize the mind, body, and soul – you can’t get that at a hotel no matter where it is.
The villas have also become very affordable. There are a number of price points, and travellers can choose what fits their budgets. These villas are very large so they work well for tourists travelling together. It’s a lot cheaper for four, six, or eight people to rent a beautiful, spacious villa than for each of them to rent hotel rooms, no matter how cheap they are.
With new low cost carriers making their way to Bali, travel to Bali by the middle class is also growing and the Bali villas fill a nice niche for those who are looking for better than average accommodations.
