Bali High Life: 3 Reasons to rent a luxury private villa in Bali
Bali High Life: 3 Reasons to rent a luxury private villa in Bali
December 7, 2011 by admin

Bali is the kind of place people visit and think, “I could live here,” and so they build their dream holiday house with the distant hope they’ll one day live permanently on the island. In the meantime, to help cover the costs of its staff and maintenance, it makes sense to make it available on the private villa rental market. With over 1,600 private villas now available for rent on the island, 10 per cent of them are marketed as luxury, they’ve become serious competitors to the island’s thriving luxury resort industry.

There are different views on the advantages of the one over the other but there’s little doubt that compared to staying in a resort, leasing a luxury villa will get you more space, privacy and value for your money on a Bali holiday. With this in mind, and to better compete with the high-end resorts, the luxury villa management companies in Bali are attempting to make the villa experience as close as possible to a luxury resort experience in every way imaginable.

Some villas, for example, make the distinction between a cook and a chef and for a little extra, will provide the services of a restaurant standard chef. In most luxury villas the staff manager will act as a concierge during your stay, facilitating your excursions from the villa to local restaurants, golf courses and other activities as well as by arranging in-villa visits by local yoga teachers and spa staff for on-site massages and beauty treatments. Some villas have rooms purpose-built for this use in an attempt to bring it closer to a resort spa experience. Babysitting services can also be arranged and there are villas with fully equipped gyms. A full domestic staff clean and tidy throughout the day and some perform a turn down service in the evening. Some villas even provide a comprehensive range of luxury bathroom products.

Value For Money

An average room rate in a luxury resort during peak season might be around USD $480 which is about USD $240 per head, per night. Often breakfast is included in that rate but after breakfast, you’ll pay for most other things. If you have say eight people in your group, enough to fill a four bedroom villa, during peak season you’ll pay around USD $180 per head per night. So you’ve already made a saving on the room rate but you’ll get some extras as well.

Luxury villas have a staff of at least six whose services are included in the cost of the villa rental. Some of those people are around to look after the grounds and maintenance, the swimming pool and villa security but there’ll always be at least one cook or chef, other domestic staff and possibly a driver.

At meal times you’ll often only pay the local market cost of the ingredients for all of the meals you choose to eat at the villa during your stay. The same goes for beverages: alcoholic and non alcoholic. At the end of each day the staff will present you with a daily account including receipts of anything purchased that day on your behalf. The account is usually for a small amount, around say $8 per head if you don’t drink very much alcohol (which by the way is heavily taxed in Indonesia and so is relatively expensive). The domestic staff will also take care of your laundry on site returning clothes to your room washed, dried and folded or ironed and hung for either no extra charge or a small per garment charge.

Sometimes a car and driver is included in the villa tariff, saving you about USD $46 for a half day use or, on the days you make use of it all day, USD $74. The arrangement at each villa varies slightly but, regardless of whether the villa has a dedicated car and driver, airport transfers for all of the guests are sometimes included in the villa rental rate. (Same goes for some luxury resorts.)

Space And Privacy

The average size of a four-bedroom luxury villa is around 550 square metres in built area on a land size of around 1,000 square metres. No resort can offer you the extravagance of space a private luxury villa offers.

More Authentic experience

With a stay that is not so much overran with other guests you will have a better feel of the local tradition, the neighborhood and its people. By not having large tourist attractions pressing in on you from all sides like you’re at a hotel, you are able to see what the area is truly like. At one private luxury villa in Bali, from across the rainforest, we listened for an entire day into the evening and the early hours of the following morning, as a village leader on a hand-held loudspeaker prepared the locals for a once-in-every-five-years village cremation ceremony; his haunting half singing, half speaking was achingly beautiful. Our villa manager invited us, on behalf of his community, to attend the ceremony and some of our group went along. They described it as one of the most moving events of their lives and they felt privileged to have been included. An opportunity like this is unlikely to have arisen at a resort.
