Bali, the island of Gods, the tiny resort destination in the middle of Indonesia is home to a growing number of luxury travel options from the fancy luxury hotels to the most luxurious villas for rent.
Seminyak, the Saint-Tropez of Bali, has indeed more than 300 villas for rent, all located around the famous Jalan Oberoi, the shopping and fashion street of Bali. Seminyak is also home to the best hotels such as the W or the Oberoi (photo of the new W Seminyak below)
So when staying in Seminyak, should you go for one of these 5-star hotels or for a Private Villa in Seminyak?
There are different things to consider, but, at the end of the day, renting a luxury villa will for sure get you more space, privacy and value for your money, as compared to staying in a Hotel. The reason is that, for the price of 2 luxury hotel rooms in a branded property, you can get a large, 6 bedroom, luxury Villa at the heart of Seminyak such as, for example the Villa Chocolat in Seminyak. This kind of Villa comes with full privacy obviously - but also with a range of personalized services - always hard to get in a 300-room hotel. Not to mention the saving on Food & Beverage you will get in your Private Villa where your Chef will do local shopping for you and your guests.
Having this in mind, always look at one of the villa specialist website before you make any booking in Bali !
