  • Utmost comfort, hospitality, and luxury at Villa Satori

    "We spent a wonderful 5 days and 4 nights at Villa Satori in early December. From booking to saying goodbye, everything about this property was five stars. Kasey was friendly, easy to contact and very helpful when booking Villa Satori. She's got great personal notes for the Ubud area on things to do, places to eat, etc. As a TV producer who is always planning travel logistics, I spent this holiday going with the flow. Villa Satori has everything that makes going with the flow easy yet productive at the same time. They have staff that are local to the Ubud area and Bali in general that are able to set up massages, day trips, etc very efficiently. The two wonderful staff members, Wayan and Ketut, are excellent. They go above and beyond in every aspect to make sure your time is comfortable. They are incredibly warm and friendly and keep the villa spotless. I wish I had them around for my own house! There is nothing more relaxing than waking up to the delicious made to order breakfasts by Wayan. If you follow it up with a in house massage (they've got a massage table or two they set up in the villa), your morning will be pretty much perfect. The villa itself is gorgeous. It's obvious the villa is a labor of love for Kasey as well as her home away from home from the details. Each room is sizable, beautifully appointed, and every bed is comfortable. It's a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the center of Ubud, but set far enough away that you can escape it all as well. It is peaceful, serene, and you will see more of the real Indonesian life away from the crowds of tourists. It would suffice to say that everyone in my family (my parents, brother in his twenties, and husband) were sad to leave and wished we had more time to spend at the villa. When we return, we hope Villa Satori is available because we'd stay there again in a heartbeat."

Israel Travel Tips

Getting to Israel Vacation Rentals

The main entry point into Israel is the Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. Technically, the airport is located 12 miles southeast of the city but there is good access provided by public transportation and private taxis. There are also airport shuttles operated by the national airline. The airport hosts frequent commercial flights from most major cities in Europe and Africa. When traveling to Israel, you need to be aware that they have very strict security measures. Expect delays upon arrival and to have your bags thoroughly searched. When checking in for your flight home, allocate an extra hour for security checks. Israel also has two major seaports and many people arrive in Israel as part of a Mediterranean cruise. Ashdod and Haifa are the main cruise ports; however, smaller vessels may be able to dock at the marinas in Tel Aviv and Eilat.

Visitors to Vacation Apartments in Israel

Israel holds great significance for three of the major world religions, namely Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Many people from their various religions make pilgrimages to Israel, in particular Jerusalem, each year. There are many historical sites that hold cultural significance and are genuinely interesting to visit. It is a country that blends ancient traditions and history with a more modern culture. The cities of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem are examples of this contrast. Israel also has some excellent beaches along its Mediterranean coastline. Sun lovers flock to the beaches and warm climate in the summer months.

Major Sightseeing Attractions near Israel Lodging

Depending on where you are staying in Israel, there are many sightseeing attractions. The old city of Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock and the Western Wailing Wall are three of the country's most famous landmarks. Of particular interest to Christian travelers are a number of the historical sites in Jerusalem. There is the Stations of the Cross which mark various points along the road where Christ carried the cross to the outskirts of the city. Then there is also the Garden of Gethsemane and the tomb that have been well preserved as religious landmarks. Golgotha, or the place of the skull can be seen just outside of Jerusalem's old city.

Throughout Jerusalem, there are various chapels, churches and shrines marking places believed to be of historical significance. For Jewish visitors, the most visited feature in Jerusalem is the Western Wall, otherwise also known as the Wailing Wall. The wall is where devout Jews congregate to pray for the restoration of Israel. Their prayer requests are written on pieces of paper and stuffed into the cracks of the wall. Just for the experience, it is well worth visiting. The Dead Sea is so named because of its extremely high salt content. Visitors can experience floating in the sea and enjoy a beauty therapy treatment at one of the local spas. Dead Sea mud is known worldwide for its healing properties. If it is beaches that you are looking for, the bright lights of Tel Aviv is the place to be. There is a great beach vibe here. During the day, you can relax on the beach and in the evenings enjoy the nightlife.
