A record 3,000,000 people visit the paradise island of Bali each year making it one of the most impressive areas in Indonesia to visit. Still reminiscent of the original island some 500 years ago, the Balinese people have a rich religious culture. The island is an impressive venue for those seeking the true tropics.

Bali is very small; visitors can drive around the entire coast of Bali in a day’s trip. However, the area is so profound; you would not want to overlook the enormously interesting history and variety found within the numerous suburbs located throughout Bali. Bali has been extraordinarily developed within the last few years. Isolation is not a word exclusive to Bali any longer. Bali has been discovered and by being so, the solidarity of the island has been reduced to information found in textbooks.

When vacationing in Bali, comfort and luxury go hand in hand with the tropical mysticism of this vacation attraction. Many people find that the privacy of a beautiful villa is one of the best ways to spend their time enjoying the sights and scenery around them without having to deal with hustle and bustle of a hotel crowd. Villa rentals are also ideal for couples looking for some romantic alone time.

When vacationing in Bali, there are some extremely enticing areas which vacationers find to be those most desirable:


Overview of Ubud
When considering a location to rent a villa, Ubud is perhaps one of the most culturally rich and artistic places to be. There are many villas available for rent and most of them even come with their own pool so that you can enjoy a cool swim any time of the day or night. This is an ideal location for those who enjoy cooler temperatures since the land here is elevated above the rest. For the art, history and nature buff, this is the best place to be. Take a stroll among the lush surroundings, visit one of the art galleries for an amazing visual experience or soak in the history at the museum. Either way, Ubud in Bali has divine tastes that one could only dream of.

Villas available either in Central Ubud or the outskirts range anywhere from $100 – $750 per night. This is the perfect place for a variety of budgets. Villas are available with a full staff which includes a cook, waitress, housekeepers, a groundskeeper, pool management and security guards for your safety. You can relax and enjoy the cool airconditioning of your own master bedroom. Most villas also feature satellite tv and a DVD player. If you are worried about personal belongings you can request to have your valuables kept in a deposit box for safe keeping.


Overview of Kuta
Many tourists frequent Kuta while on vacation in Bali for the sense of excitement and fun while surfing along the beach or strolling through the shops restaurants and bars. Villas are available for a variety of budgets ranging from $85 to $530 a night. Relax in your own personal swimming pool and roam through the spacious living facilities while you vacation in Bali. If you plan on vacationing during the holidays or for a special occasion such as a honeymoon or anniversary, ask about special package pricing for what it is that you need. There are many bundles available with many amenities that are sure to please anyone.

Kuta has developed well since the 60′s. Food stations are set up to tempt tourists, hungry after a day of exploring with delicious and savory flavors of authentic local dishes. Shopping vendors boast interesting and colorful displays that offer unique trinkets to those who are interested in making a purchase. Cool off while you sit and enjoy a cool drink at one of the bars or perhaps meet new faces. The busier area is a common attraction for many tourists who enjoy all that Kuta has to offer. Renting a villa while in Kuta is just an added benefit to all there is to see and do.


Overview of Lovina
For the ultimate water lover, Lovina is recommended for villa rental. These spacious villas offer a breath taking view of beautiful sunsets over the water. Many extras are offered such as maid services, a full staff all day long and safety or your valuables. Villas are offered at a number of different price ranges to satisfy the budget of all. Not only can you enjoy the sultry air coming in off the beach, the privacy that you can be experienced when renting your own villa is a definite added plus for any vacationer looking to enjoy their experience in Bali to the fullest.

Lovina is well known for water recreation. Those vacationing in this part of Bali are bound to experience the untamed beauty of nature as they see dolphins swimming by or enjoy a day of sailing upon the open water. The beach of Lovina has drawn a number of locals and tourists alike for years. The golden sandy beaches and tropical air are a refining stress relief for families, individuals, couples and business men and women. That is what makes this one of the best areas for renting a villa in Bali.

There are many more great places in Bali to rent a villa. Depending on what you are looking for, privacy, history, art, culture, or the busy shopping centers is what you have to base your location on. Renting a villa is one of the most recommended ways to spend your time in Bali because you can relax in a home away from home after a long day of traveling and exploring. The quiet comfort that a villa can offer is like no other and what makes these places so highly sought after. Amenities are endless and enjoyable and the price is well worth the experience.

Nusa Lembongan

Nusa Lembongan is one of the most economically developed islands in Bali. Tourists take in the view of the area while languishing in common and desired development consistent with western cultures. Nusa Lembongan is interestingly enough, free of smog. Neither cars nor motorcycles are available in Nusa Lembongan. Host to about 7000 people as reported by the last census count, the locals reside in two small villages: Jungutbatu and Lembongan. Money available from tourism is imperative in keeping water running and electricity operating. Traveling to and while on the island of Nusa Lembogan can be quite a task. By far, the most comfortable means of travel is by boat. Day-trippers provide the Perama boats and public boats. Those who have been to Nusa Lembongan recommend traveling light. The area is not large at all. Therefore, walking to and from locations is the recommended method of transportation while on the island. If walking is a problem, bicycles and scooters are available for rent.

Candidasa has development from one end to the other. Nonetheless, with no beach or even easy access to one, Candidasa is still an attractive area and the destination requested by many seeking to vacation in Bali. Located off main roads between Amlapura and South Bali, Candidasa has no bus terminal. Tourists generally hail down bemos (buses) which sometime just seem to pass the hailer by. Vacationers looking for rest and relaxation without a hectic touring schedule love Candidasa. In addition, if you have the urge to try unique and different cuisine, Candidasa has some of the best restaurants in Bali. Even without beach activity, divers and snorkeliers find the area beaming with sea life.

Disappointed in your comments re private school snobs. I have taught for along time in the state system in Australia and a shorter time in the private system. Snobs exist in both systems ! The BEST facilities are in the private system. In my school in a country aRea we have 2 interactive whiteboards,. In friends private school there are 45 !
Good schools are where the parents are fully behind the school and have high expectations of their children and expect them to study hard and succeed. It is a partnership between families and schools. Cotton wool kids do not succeed in life but expect mum and dad to care for them forever. Be warned and be a tough dad who expects success from Jevon

I’ve been to Villa Bali several times, and I cannot help but give it praise for keeping the overall value good, with affordable drinks and food. While the food is not top notch for dinners, the finger foods like its fish/beef/chicken satays and platters are really good value. The happy hours (whole day for Sun – Tue) is really appreciated. A chill out on a Sunday evening is really nice, without hurting the wallet.

Will be staying on Bali for more than 1 month. I’m hoping to find a house to rent. Close enough access to the beach and shopping would be nice, but I don’t want to limit myself. If the house is right, could hire a bike.

If you have any homes or families in mind looking to rent their place at a reasonable price, please let me know. $150-200 Looking at that range.

Following my own monitoring, millions of persons in the world get the credit loans at well known banks. Thus, there is good possibilities to find a credit loan in every country.
