There isn´t a dearth of Asia Holiday Retreats in the world. And, you can bet your bottom dollar that the holiday destination, Bali, is crammed with resorts, retreats, and villas, fulfilling the needs and requirements of millions of tourists who fly over to escape from their monotonous routines and hectic lifestyles. If you are looking for a villa in Bali, you have come to the right place. Let us provide you with information on what to look out for when choosing a villa in Bali.
- Where is your villa specifically located?
When choosing a villa in Bali, you must ensure that it isn’t in the heart of the major towns; it is fine as long as it is officially located in the area. So, why choose a villa that is a few minutes away from the centre? Well, weren’t you looking for breathtaking views of the landscape? If so, that’s why! The further you are from the centre, the closer you are to a tranquil and beautiful Bali. However, if your requirements and needs are different, and you are looking to visit shopping malls and restaurants—basically searching for a place that is closer to civilisation, you can opt to stay in the heart of the major towns.
- Is the villa old?
When checking the pictures of the shortlisted villas online, it is important for you to know if the photos are of recent times or of the yesteryears. You must ask if the villas boast of old damp smells. Or, you could simply visit review sites to get unbiased reviews on the shortlisted villa from fellow travellers and guests.
- Are service charges and tax added to the price?
You shouldn’t be surprised if you come across villas that show prices that don’t have taxes and service charges included. There are many villas that do that in order to lure and attract more guests. However, if you don’t want to face a rude awakening by receiving a hefty bill that is a lot higher than predicted, we would recommend you to first identify if the villa you intend to stay in display prices inclusive of taxes and service charges. It is of paramount importance for you to do this before booking.
- Are the staff members capable of conversing in English fluently?
If you value service as much as we do, you should know the importance of the staff members being able to converse with you in fluent English. As far as we are concerned, it doesn’t matter how good a villa is or how great it looks; if the staff members aren’t able to cater to our needs and requirements—then, what’s the point of staying there? Forget about getting basic services, how will you be able to describe complex situations and emergencies? Hence, it is imperative for you to confirm that the villa staff members are well capable of speaking English fluently.
