Coming to Bali, you will have loads of accommodation to choose. From three-star to five-star hotels, apartments, budget guest houses, to private villas, everything is available in the table. However, if you have to choose between hotel and villa, we would highly suggest you a villa—or spend half of your holiday there—for a more authentic and relaxing vacation. Here are things to you can do at a private villas in Bali that otherwise would be difficult to do in a hotel.
Sunbathing in the Private Pool at the Private Bali Villas
Imagine staying at a hotel and wake up early to “book” a sun lounger by the pool. Sometimes you get up too late and someone just “book” the only empty sun lounger with their towel, but they never show up. Now imagine having your own pool at the holiday home. You can get up anytime you wanted and you don’t have to compete with anyone to lie down in the daybed. It only take five steps from your bed to the pool.
This might be basic, but getting tanned by the pool is number one thing to do in private villas Bali. Don’t worry if you forgot to pack your swim trunks or bikini. Just make sure you have a towel handy and haven’t ordered any room service (if your villa come with staffs). You won’t have to worry about uneven tan lines anymore, and you’ll have all the privacy you need!
Gazing to the Horizon from Your Infinity Pool
There are many resorts and hotels in Bali that boasts infinity pool—whether overlooking vast blue ocean or Bali’s lush jungles. However, there is no getting away from other people when you go for a swim, let alone needing to secure a sun lounger. You could wish to chill down away from prying eyes, share a beautiful, romantic time paddling in the pool with a loved one, or experience a sense of inner calm by swimming a few laps while gazing out at a spectacular scenery.
Pool & BBQ Party!
Now that’s definitely something you cannot do in a hotel. Having your own private poolside barbecue party. You may now half-swim in the pool while chewing on that succulent chicken wing and washing it down with a bottle of Bintang beer. Some villas charge a price for a barbecue service, which entails the staff assisting you with the cooking while you relax and enjoy.
Do Outdoor Spa
When was the last time you can enjoy a relaxing deep tissue massages with a view? Probably almost never. Bali is overflowing with spa, but the majority of them are done inside a room shared with three to five spa beds. Even spas in hotels are mostly indoors—unless you are staying in a thousand-dollars resort with spas overlooking the ocean. But in a private villas Bali, you can literally have a Balinese relaxing spa in the garden, surrounded by calming greeneries. How wonderful is that?
Do Some Skinny Dip in the Private Bali Villas
You need to sneak out in the absolutely middle of the night if you want to do a skinny dip in a hotel. But within the privacy of your villa? You can do that anytime. Especially if you rent it just for your own (or with a loved one). Just make certain there aren’t any creepy crawlies that have gotten into the pool by accident.
