Should I Stay in Villa or Hotel in Bali

There are so many Bali villas offering spacious bedrooms and beautiful hotels with equally amazing bedrooms. Which one is right for you?


Planning on spending some quality time with your family or friends in Bali? Renting villas will be the best decision you make for your Bali holiday. For those who enjoy group privacy, seclusion, exclusive services, and spacious accommodation with a dash of luxury, Bali villas will be perfect. 

Depending on your preference and needs, you can experience the beautiful Bali from Balinese style villas, luxury modern villas, or stylish beachfront villas. All these Bali villas are beautifully designed, usually fully-staffed with personalized services.

Another big plus is you have more privacy – you can invite friends without worrying about other guests. Rental villas for long term stay are available and you can even find villas for sale.

How about the locations? For a laid-back beach stay away from the crowds, pick Sanur, Nusa Dua, or around the beaches in Tabanan. If you enjoy nightlife and hip places around your stay, Canggu, Kuta, and Seminyak will suit you. Choose Ubud for a traditional Balinese village feel and amazing sightseeings in nature. 


Most travelers opting for hotels are solo travelers or couples. Staying in a hotel is a good idea for if you want modern comforts but don’t mind sharing standard facilities (swimming pool, Wi Fi, gym, and breakfast) with other guests during your stay. 

Hotels usually offer bedrooms based on your needs: single bed bedroom, double bed bedroom, bedroom assigned for three or four persons – but you can only choose one among them. 

While typical hotels are located in accessible areas to tourist attractions and this can be a practical option if you want to spend more time exploring the areas, you might feel a bit uneasy because of the noisy environment.

If you arrive in Bali and need a short stay around Ngurah Rai Airport, there are many options of hotels nearby. You can also easily choose a beautiful luxury hotel in the famous area of Ubud, Sanur, Nusa Dua, or near the beautiful beaches in Seminyak, Sanur, Canggu, or Kuta.


The big win for villas is the luxury feel of having exclusive, personalized services and facilities, while most hotels only provide standard services and facilities. Need help in choosing the perfect Bali villas for you? Feel free to contact us or find your perfect villa here.
