In partnership with
Bali’s most trusted villa rental agency, Bali Villa Escapes, is here to help you have the ultimate ‘revenge holiday’ with its collection of highly curated luxury villas.
Pack your swimsuit and a large-brimmed hat; after a two-year lockdown (thanks, Covid), Bali is not only open for tourism, but like a summer garden after a long, dreary winter, it is blooming. The beaches are once again dotted with day beds, the restaurants heaving with fresh seafood and those temples… well, they were never going to stop being impressive. The only thing missing from this island paradise equation? You, treating yourself to your best life with a luxury villa holiday.
Bali Villa Escapes
Revenge travel is the ultimate trend of 2023 and what could be better than giving the pandemic the ultimate door slam than by giving yourself the gift of a stay in one of Bali’s most luxurious villas? The team at Australian-owned Bali Villa Escapes have been handpicking properties across Bali since 2005, each property (in locations as varied as the eternally hip Canggu to the tranquil neighbouring island of Lombok) chosen for its level of quality.
Their collection of luxury villas, and Luxury Escapes Bali, however, are also selected for meeting another set of criteria altogether – their unmistakable ‘wow’ factor. Clifftop, absolute beachfront, lush forest hideaway – their spectacular settings are one thing, but with Bali Villa Escapes’ luxury villas, it’s all about the premium amenities and services made available during your stay so that the ultimate revenge holiday has never looked sweeter.
At a base level, each villa under Bali Villa Escapes’ luxury villas collection comes with a private team of housekeepers including a personal butler, villa manager, gardeners, and pool attendants. Fancy a casual barbeque by your infinity pool, an impromptu dinner party with all your other friends who happen to be in Bali (there’s always someone you know around the corner) or perhaps a romantic five-course dinner for two? Your private chef will take care of all the details. Hankering for a particular type of ice cream? Sit back and relax while the team rush into town and rustle one up (they’ll also do your grocery shopping, so you’ll never have to worry about procuring snacks for the kids or something a little more special for the adults). Should you want to leave the villa and head into town or perhaps enjoy an adventure, a private car, with a driver, is always at your beck and call, so that the whole island essentially becomes your playground.
The magic doesn’t stop there – while all the luxury villas feature perfectly landscaped private pools, some have as many as three (a handful of which are absolute beachfront or perched on a cliff to make the most of the property’s ocean views). Jacuzzis, saunas, gyms, atmospheric barbeque areas and bedrooms larger than most inner-city apartments are par for the course, and of course, there’s a property configuration suitable for every type of guest. Many properties are located close to town or on or right by the beach, so they’re perfect for young families (and advertised as such), while others are set in more tranquil, remote locations and demand the presence of loved-up couples enjoying the seclusion over dinner, drinks, and flowers.
If you’re planning a group getaway, a multigenerational holiday or perhaps even a wedding, some of the more sizable properties can feature more than 10 bedrooms and make the perfect backdrop to catch up with loved ones or say, ‘I do’. Villa Shalimar Canggu, for example, has 12 bedrooms so that it’s able to accommodate up to 24 wedding guests and offers both an expansive, manicured lawn and striking ocean views. Your villa team will, of course, be on hand to work through all the finer details of the big day so you and your partner can just relax and enjoy both a pre-and post-wedding honeymoon.
You’ve got your eye on a luxury villa (and a few silk pantsuits in mind) so now what? Bali is not only open for tourism, but travel to the island is remarkably easy. Now that all Covid-19 testing requirements have been lifted (travellers must be vaccinated, however), all that’s required is the purchase of a simple visa on arrival, the completion of a health declaration and a quick download of the Peduli Lindungi app.
