Hints and Tips for Renting a Private Pool Villa in Bali

Hotels with pool villas offer the convenience of a resort plus a classic Bali villa holiday experience.

Dining out and services like getting your laundry done are affordable in Bali, so don’t get caught up looking for villas with Airbnb-type features like a washing machine or a kitchen for self-catering.

Most villas don’t have pools with a fence so take care if you’re travelling with young children.

If you’re booking a privately owned villa, choose your location carefully as some of these villas are quite isolated (a bonus for some travellers, but not for others).

Check if anyone can see your pool before you go skinny dipping.
