If you are planning a holiday in Bali, you should take a look at these helpful tips to guide you in selecting the best accommodation for your stay.

Anyone who has ever gone on a much needed and longed for vacation, looking forward to some rest and relaxation in a luxury villa or resort, only to find themselves ensconced in a Roach Motel, can testify that this experience is no fun at all and hardly conducive to having a good time.

Bali is a jewel of a small tropical island. Part of the Indonesian Republic, it lies just 8 degrees south of the Equator and is home to some of the most beautiful scenery to be found anywhere in the world.

Still, no matter how beautiful the surroundings, if your accommodation is below par, you won’t be able to fully enjoy your holiday.

This is why finding good accommodation for your stay in Bali is of the utmost importance. Here are some tips to help you choose your Bali villa or hotel wisely:

  • First, check out the things you want to do and see during your stay on Bali. If the attractions that are of special interest to you are all on the south end of the island, for instance, you don’t want to book accommodation on the north end. So, sit down and decide where you want to go and/or what you want to do, and then mark those places on a map of the island so that you’ll have a good idea of where to look for accommodation.
  • Next, decide which type of accommodation would be best suited to your preferences. If you want solitude and alone time, you probably wouldn’t fare too well in a busy, bustling hotel crammed with other tourists. Bali villas offer privacy and quiet for those who want to relax and unwind in a low key setting, peaceful and serene. If you will be taking children with you, Bali villas are often the preferred choice for accommodation, simply because they aren’t crowded and noisy.
  • Once you decide on the type of accommodation you want for your holiday in Bali, refine your search even more by deciding what size hotel suite or villa would suit you best. If you are going solo, a simple one bedroom hotel room might suffice, or even a studio apartment in a resort. However, if you are going with a party of family or friends, you will need more space. In that event, you should look for Bali villas or hotel accommodation with at least two or more bedrooms. Your accommodation needs might also depend on whether or not you plan to do any entertaining while on the island; in which case you’ll want to have a living room and dining area.
  • When you have all the details in place, you can start to shop for a villa or hotel. If you want to score a good deal and save a little money, even if you want luxury accommodation, there are various ways to do this. For example, you might consider going at a time of the year that isn’t quite so busy with tourist trade. Unfortunately, on Bali this would mean during the wet season but if you don’t mind rain, you can have luxury at a lower price then, rather than going during the dry season?

To make sure you get all the enjoyment possible from your holiday in Bali, put in a little time finding and arranging the best accommodation.
