Travel is something we as a family love to do, and Asia is an area I’ve visited with my husband before children, but would to revisit all together. This was a great post for inspiration actually – 10 Wonderful things to do in Bali. For the most part, Asia Holiday Retreats are fun, luxurious, and exciting. However, you may be wondering whether holiday villas are a great idea. After all most people still have fun in hotels. Where you stay during your holiday will make a huge difference. In fact, your entire experiences will be centered on where you stay during your holiday. Booking a villa, especially if you are traveling in a group has numerous advantages. Here are several reasons why you might want to consider villas over hotels for your next Asia Holiday Retreats.
The first thing that will impress you about villas is the fact that they are much larger than hotel rooms. Usually, villas include five or more rooms. They also come with a fully equipped kitchen. If you are traveling with family and friends, you will find that villas offer you much more freedom and luxury. They are spacious enough to afford everyone some privacy yet they still allow you to feel like you are home.
With villas, you pay rent on a weekly basis, unlike hotels that are paid for per day. They also have lower running expenses and other overheads. Considering the space and the amenities you get from each villa, and considering the price per person, makes it even cheaper than using a hotel.
As part of its cost saving advantage, villas also have a fully equipped kitchen. If you have traveled for a while then you know eating out as a tourist can get very expensive. In villas, you can cook your own meals. When you can’t, the staff will make great meals for you at a price smaller than what you would have paid to eat out. They are perfect for families with small kids as eating out regularly can be costly for people with smaller children. Children also have sensitive stomachs and may be affected by foreign delicacies.
Hotels have one main disadvantage, you can only eat what is on the menu. Most hotels will book your flights and the maids will keep knocking at any hour to clean the room. While staff at villas would be happy to do all that for you, it is not mandatory. You also have the freedom to choose what you want to eat and when you want to eat. With freedom, you can shop around for the best deals, the best flight time for you, and the comfort you want.
If you are out on holiday, you want to relax and do things at your own pace. During certain seasons of the year when tourists cause a crowd, you will have to scramble to get the best sun lounge. You will also have to share the pool with others. With villas, you have a lot of privacy. Most come with their own private pool. Therefore, the only people you will be sharing with are the people that you will be staying with. You can also sleep all day without being disturbed by the maids or noisy guests passing by your door.
