Bali is a beautiful paradise island in the Indian Ocean. Recent events have reduced tourist numbers in Bali, but the amazing attractions and entertainment which first attracted visitors to Bali are unaffected and more accessible than ever. Lazy days on the beaches, exhilarating sports, lively culture and stunning scenery combine in perfect harmony to make Bali holiday properties some of the most sought after in the world.
Holidays to Bali are a blank slate. There is no end of entertainment in Bali, meaning you can arrive at your Bali accommodation and craft the perfect holiday to suit your desires from a beer and beach holiday to an outdoor activity adventure. Shopping in Bali is surprisingly good too. There are many excellent things to buy in Bali, from traditional crafts to up to the minute fashion items, and the markets are always filled to bursting point with fascinating items on which you can really test you bargaining skills!
One great way of seeing some of the island which often gets ignored tourist is by taking a 4x4 through the wondrous landscapes, through thick, tropical rainforests or mountain slopes. The inland areas are also perfect for cycling holidays, climbing in the mountains and horse riding holidays, which are made even more flexible and personal by taking a private villa in Bali. Trekking through the rainforests is excellent fun, and there are many great marked trails which take you to some of the finest view points and best attractions of Bali.
However, most holidays in Bali villa rentals revolve squarely around the coastline. Bali beaches are known the world over for their quality and beauty, and many days from Bali accommodation can be spent lazing in the sun with fine, white sand between your toes. Water sports thrive in Bali, and you can enjoy windsurfing, water skiing, wakeboarding, deep sea fishing, sailing, parasailing, dolphin watching trips and excellent scuba diving from a Bali property. If you are looking at Bali villas for surfing, head for the beaches of Padang Padang, Nusa Dua and Canggu, especially from September until March. Those new to surfing will be perfect from a Bali villa in Kuta or Legian Beach.
The legendary nightlife of Bali has made it a favourite destination for many travellers. The nightlife centres of Kuta, Tuban, Nusa Dua and Ubud are the best places to head for if you are looking for a great night out during your Bali holiday.
Surfers will already know about Canggu, but there is far more than fearsome breaks and relaxed cafes to boast about from a Bali villa in Canggu. It is a beautifully natural area with a very local feel, one which has been lost in many of the larger centres.
If you are looking for a luxury holiday to Bali accommodation, Seminyak is the perfect destination. Set right on one of the finest beaches in Bali’s west coast, Seminyak offers visitors luxury accommodation, a pretty, uncrowded beach and some of the best restaurants in Bali.
Legian is the ideal place for a family holiday to Bali. Set right on the back of the beach and flush with sport and leisure opportunities, a private Bali villa in Legian is a sure bet for an unforgettable Bali holiday.
Set on the equator, Bali has a wonderful, year round climate. Temperatures usually reach around 32°C during the days, even during the wet season, which lasts from October until April.
Bali International Airport (DPS) is perfectly located to make reaching a Bali property easy. There are international flights from all over the world, although you may have to make a quick change in Kuala Lumpur (KUL) or Singapore (SIN).
