Bali Bali Bali – Private Pool Villa or Room in a hotel?

There are not many places in the world where a luxurious villa with a private pool is within budget but in Bali, Indonesia it is! You can have your own little slice of heaven nestled between the greenery surrounding your private zen garden.

Bali is home to both beautiful villas and full-on all-inclusive resorts for those travelling on a budget and those seeking the luxury life, there’s accommodation option to suit everyone!

Villas in Bali

Some villas in Bali have their own private chef who will cook breakfast, lunch and dinner and deliver it and all you have to do is to sip your drink and chew your food! You won’t have to leave the serenity of your sunbed or your pool. 1 week, 2 weeks of total relaxation! Yes! The downside is the pool is almost always a small plunge pool.

And while a holiday in Bali means quietness and relaxation, it might get too quiet for some, say whaaaat??

Bali hotels
