  • Our fantastic honeymoon!

    "We've picked this villa for our honeymoon and were so glad we've made such a choice! We were looking for quite place where we can enjoy each other and we were lucky to find it! The villa is just gorgeous! It's built in tropical style and well designed. It's such a pleasure to have a shower enjoying sunbath as well, as the shower is open. Living room is facing the ocean, so nice to read a book there or have a glass of fresh juice. There is an infinity pool in the villa and it's amazing as it seems like you swim in a huge clean drop of water! Every evening we came down to the secluded beach to see the sunset."

  • The perfect holiday accommodation

    "Hi Kasey, I have been meaning to write to you sooner but just got caught up with the usual things once we got back home. We noted how happy we were with Villa Satori in your guest book at the Villa as everyone else fortunate to have stayed there has also done. We had the most wonderful holiday, it was just perfect in every sense. I did have trouble with reception on the tv and buzzing sound when a dvd was put in, but I was thankful that was the case as it stopped us from having it on and allowed us just to enjoy the sounds of life around the villa and enjoy each others company, I haven't felt so relaxed and laughed that much in a long time. The villa is perfect, your choice in decor was very tasteful, inviting and homely, it just felt that you left no stone unturned to ensure maximum enjoyment for anyone who stays there and Wayan and Ketut seem to exemplify the same philosophy, both very kind and attentive and an uncanny ability to operate in a kind of stealth mode that its like they are not there at all. Having small children ensured we spent as much time as we could in the villa, which was great and the type of holiday I was looking for. We did manage some day trips with one of you drivers Wayan and he was great and the massages from Wayan were incredible. Our travel companion Brian commented that he will certainly try and go back with some of his friends as he loved it so much. Traditionally we try different places to travel for different experiences but somehow I think we will also go back one day to explore parts of Ubud we didn't get to see this time and the opportunity to stay again at Villa Satori. So thank you for the work you put into making sure Villa Satori is an experience that will stay with you long after you have left."

  • Great staff and everything as advertised

    "It had been a while since the last review on this property so I was naturally a bit skeptical. But the place is as advertised, both written and in photos. Spacious large rooms, clean, well maintained inside and outside, and attentive staff (cook, housekeeper, gardner, and property manager). We were a family of 10 on a 50th wedding anniversary reunion for my in-laws. We had a very relaxing stay for 6 nights here over Christmas 2013. The cook did a great job with breakfast making creative western and Indonesian dishes. On request, she cooked lunch for us twice and it was delicious. The massage girls arrived every morning on time for our daily $8 per hour per person massage and they were very good. Nengah Wirayasa, the property manager and responder to all emails was a man of his word. The property itself is tucked away behind the Villa Lumbung hotel, so it is a 5 min walk to the main road, and a 15 min walk to The Breeze (Hotel Samaya) and the Seminyak Lodge and Hotel. Calling a meter taxi to the villa was not a problem. Worth staying at in Seminyak. Highly recommended."

Bali Travel Tips

Stay in Paradise with Bali Vacation Rentals

Bali is considered one of the most exotic holiday destinations in the world. The natural beauty of this tropical island, the friendly locals and the great cuisine make this a place that visitors choose to return to again and again. The towering rainforest, covered mountains, paddy fields, craft villages and palm-fringed beaches offer something for everyone.

Although the island is fairly small—you can drive around it in a day—there are many different aspects to enjoy, from enchanting temples and the mesmerizing local lion dance to amazing beaches, dramatic surf and some of the most vivid sunsets anywhere. Despite its popularity as a tourist resort destination, Bali thankfully retains its individual character and culture. Most of the people of Bali are Hindu and you will see many roadside shrines decorated with tiny offerings of rice or flowers.

Great Reasons to Choose Bali Vacation Rentals

The easy option is to book a hotel in Bali but you are much more in touch with the island and its culture when staying in a local villa accommodation. Rather than being surrounded by European architecture and English voices, wake up to sea views and the sound of birdsong from your own private terrace. A villa is usually far more spacious than a hotel room and often has a private swimming pool. Eating out is cheap and easy in Bali. Rather than being obliged to eat at an all-inclusive hotel, with a vacation rental it is easy to eat somewhere different every day, sampling local food wherever you happen to find yourself.

Those looking for a romantic, peaceful vacation will appreciate the privacy of a private villa. The standards of Bali accommodation are surprisingly high and often come with maid service for a truly laid-back vacation.

Things to do in Bali

Snorkeling and diving are the obvious activities to enjoy on Bali but the island has many unique attractions too. Try some of the authentic local beauty treatments and massages. Head for the hot springs set in tropical gardens, or try am herbal “lulur” body scrub, traditionally performed before a wedding. It will make your body sing!

Explore the inland areas and you will discover colorful Hindu temples and monuments such as the “Garuda Wisnu Kencana,” a sculpture of the goddess Vishnu riding a mythical Garuda bird. Go trekking in the Bali Barat National Park, home of leopards, buffalo and Bali starlings—the world’s rarest birds.

Destination Weddings and Honeymoons in Bali

Choosing a destination wedding in Bali makes great economic sense. For little more than the cost of a honeymoon, you can have a romantic wedding barefoot on the beach, surrounded by your closest family and friends. Helicopter weddings are a novelty or allow a waterfall backdrop for your ceremony.

Bali is the perfect place to relax in the sunshine and simply enjoy the company of your partner. Choose a luxury villa with hammocks, a private pool and a shady terrace. You can read or cool off in the pool during the day and drink champagne beneath the stars after dark. Bali is a very popular destination with younger guests and couples.

Getting to Your Bali Villas

Bali’s airport is usually listed as Denpasar, the name of the island’s capital city. Fly into the international Ngurah Rai Airport and in less than an hour, you can be stretched out in the sun at your Bali vacation villa. There are regularly scheduled direct flights from Australia, Amsterdam, London, Los Angeles, Frankfurt and Kuala Lumpur among other international hubs.

Bali Accommodation in all Seasons

The weather in Bali is warm all year-round with temperatures between 20 and 33 C (68 to 93 F). From December to March, the monsoon season can bring some short but heavy showers, usually at night. The dry season is from June to September, when humidity is low. During this season, it is cooler in the evenings and you may need a light jacket at higher altitudes.
