By the time international borders reopen, which isn’t likely to happen until 2021, many of us will be long overdue for an overseas holiday. Although rather than seeking out tourist hot spots and popular hotels, it will be isolated escapes with plenty of space that will be all the rage.
With this in mind, and perhaps some extra time on our hands, now is the perfect opportunity to plan for the future and book a luxurious getaway you’ve always dreamed of. One idea to consider is an Aussie favourite done differently. And yes, we’re talking about Bali – Indonesia’s island paradise known for its warm hospitality, culture, and combined sense of relaxation and adventure.
Stray away from hotels and crowded buffet breakfasts and opt instead for your own luxurious villa with a dedicated chef, a private swimming pool and enviable views of some of Bali’s alternative beachfront regions. If this sounds like something up your alley, the team at Bali Villa Escapes offer just that. Their collection of vacation rentals in Bali are hand-picked to provide a high level of quality that caters to your every need, whether you’re after a romantic getaway, a gathering with the extended family or just a quiet escape away from other tourists.
Each villa combines resort luxuries with spacious entertainment areas and authentic Balinese design. And with several bedroom options available, they are perfect for accommodating large families in a beautiful shared space.
On top of this, if you opt for a luxury escape villa, you’ll be treated to a private team of housekeepers, maids and managers ready to attend to your every whim and desire with five-star service. You basically don’t have to lift a finger if you don’t want to as everything can be arranged for you. You’ll even have your own driver and a fully air-conditioned car to take you anywhere you and your group want to go, including the airport.
This level of service is what makes Bali Villa Escapes stand out from other accommodation options. Having worked in the industry for over 15 years, the company has not only extended their range of accommodation into the luxury sector but have worked towards making luxury stays more affordable and within reach of most travellers who come to Bali.
Destinations to consider
This beachy resort village on the south coast of Bali is quickly becoming one of the island’s trendiest destinations. Despite being less than 30 minutes away from Seminyak, Canggu comes with fewer crowds and a rather laid back atmosphere complete with juice bars, hipster restaurants and quality shopping. While much of the action centres around the surfing scene at Echo Beach and the incredible sunset at Berawa and Old Man’s beach, it is also very family-friendly with a world-class recreation club and waterpark close by.
There is an extensive collection of villas to choose from in Canggu, ranging between one and seven bedrooms, all relatively close to the beach and the popular Batu Bolong & Batu Mejan areas. Travellers can choose to stay in a gorgeous, private oasis just metres away from the beach or unwind in the local village and enjoy views of the picturesque rice fields.
Similar to Canggu, Uluwatu is a surfer’s retreat with a distinctly relaxed feel about it. Located on the southern tip of the island, atop the limestone cliffs of the Bukit Peninsula, travellers are often drawn to Uluwatu for its incredible clifftop views and picturesque beaches. Not to mention, the sense of space and calmness that can be hard to find in other areas of Bali.
The sensational accommodation available at Uluwatu is a big drawcard for this holiday destination. Villas here are positioned by the cliffs to celebrate the areas striking views and are also within easy reach of the popular surf breaks of Balangan, Uluwatu, Pandawa, Bingin, Dreamlands and Padang. If you’re after pure luxury, stay in one of Bali Villa Escapes beautifully designed rentals that features an infinity pool overlooking the ocean.
No matter which destination you choose, staying in a private villa is like having a luxury resort all to yourself, and in the era of social distancing, is there any better way to travel?
