Planning your next family holiday in Bali just got easier

Villa Alea - Kerobokan Bali

Brought to you by

So you’re planning a family holiday to Bali. Have you considered staying in a villa?

Villas are a great accommodation option in Bali for larger families or groups, and can work out much more economical that booking multiple rooms at a hotel or resort.

A Bali villa gives you the added bonus of lots more space, privacy and often a whole pool to yourself – no getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve a pool lounger! We’ve all been there right? The kids can make as much noise as they want without disturbing other guests and if you want to swim at 6am, or midnight, there’s nothing stopping you!

I’m not a huge fan of self catering on holidays, (I cook at home everyday of the week), but it turns out most villas have their own staff which take care of housekeeping and cooking meals if you choose. It’s the best of both worlds, the service of a hotel, with the luxury of your own private holiday oasis.

The only down side is, it can be hard finding the right villa in Bali to suit your family’s needs. There are hundreds to choose from so trawling through multiple websites and communicating directly with individual owners can be really time consuming.

That’s where can make planning your next villa stay in Bali a whole lot easier. They are a trusted rental agency with over 600 hand picked and personally inspected villas on their books.

There’s no need to waste your time browsing through hundreds of listings, provide a free consultation service to help you pick a suitable property and arrange the best possible stay for your family.

They can organise meals, spa treatments, baby sitting, pool fences and stair gates, airport transfers, tours and activities, and advice on what to do in Bali.

That’s all the hard work done. All you’ve go to do is enjoy your holiday.

I’m super tempted to take a family holiday to Bali now. Staying in a private villa feels like such a luxurious experience.

  • kate says:

    Oh man that looks awesome! And perfect for our family of six… It can be so hard to find accomodation that works for more than 2 adults and 2 kids. And since one of my kids has anxiety and finds eating out really difficult, having our own cooking facilities might actually make a Bali holiday doable! Storing this away for future reference, thanks!

  • Sue says:

    Over Christmas/New Year our extended adult family from London, Denver and Australia came together for the first time and stayed at a wonderful villa in Sanur.

    Everything you said about the benefits of staying in a villa is absolutely correct, especially the daily maid service and options for meals provided (although the local food is brilliant and inexpensive to eat out every day).

    When looking to find the perfect Villa it was actually quite difficult because we were searching all over the internet. Happy to say our villa suited us perfectly however it would have made the task a lot simpler had we known about

    We’ve totally fallen for Bali and will definitely check out villa-bali for booking our next trip.
