For most people, finding good accommodation in Ubud, Bali generally means staying at a villa. And there are literally hundreds of villas to choose from. So how does one choose? Well the answer depends upon a number of factors. Is the villa for a family or a couple. Maybe its just for a few friends to get together and have some fun. Or maybe you just want to be by yourself for a while.
Total Privacy or Just Enough Privacy?
Let’s face it, no one wants to go on holidays and be faced with making the beds, or tidying up. And who wants to get up and make breakfast? Wouldn’t it be grand to let someone know that when you wake up, you would like a good coffee, with poached eggs on toast and local fruit for breakfast. And ideally, after having a wonderful breakfast, your valet then goes and makes the beds, tidies up the room, cleans the pool and then at your request leaves you alone to do whatever you want.
Then again, you may not want breakfast or your bed made up. You just want to stay in a very peaceful place – either alone or with a partner or friends or family. In total comfort and in total serenity.
Amenities and Value
A pool is very standard item in villas these days. So too is free wifi and satellite TV. We need to be in touch with family and friends at all times. And we need to know what our favourite TV drama is up to. Even on holidays. Well some of do at least!
But a good villa would also include a place where you can relax and just sit and enjoy the view. Like a rice paddy viewing room. Or provide specialist massages right in your own villa.
And what if this villa was to achieve top vacation rental as well as being rated Excellent in FlipKey, (Tripadvisor) and yet cost about US$25 per person based on a four person stay. I would say that is good value.
