in late July 2010, friends and I revisited Bali for another holiday, and then again in October. why Bali? simply because it’s one of the best island in Asia, and only about 3 hours flight from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Bali has become my favorite holiday destination since 2 years ago, plus points the surfing beaches, shopping area, the hotels and villas, landscapes and the cultures. i always love the sunset in Bali.
the interesting part about the last holiday was the villa. it was the first time we rented a villa for our holiday, considering the rate which came to our first attention whenever planning for any vacation. at first, the plan was like always, to go for affordable hotels. there are so many hotels in Bali, and quite many are affordable at the rate of usd30 to usd50 per night. room service? not bad. way better than “bed and breakfast” type of hotel. this way, we will be able to save a lot and spend more on shopping, food and activities.

few days before our departure date, still have not booked any hotel yet, then a friend suggested that we go for a villa, just to experience and have a great holiday this time. so we googled, found some but the rate are pretty expensive. average is about usd180 to usd250 for one room villa, per nite. there are 4 of us in this trip, so the total rate will be very costly
we keep searching until one of my friend took the initiative to email directly to several villa, request for a special rate. so fortunate that there were few hotels replied with interesting offer. one of them, Villa Nunia of Bali.
Villa Nunia was still new at that time, among all that we know. offer that we get was usd200 per night, but with 2 rooms. simply great. so 4 of us sharing, that’s about usd50 per person, per nite. without any hesitation, we took the offer and stayed there for about 5 days.
the villa is located in Seminyak area (quite near to Kudeta), was designed with a modern concept. it has two rooms, private garden, private pool, kitchen with complete facility, private and huge living hall with all the facilities you need like satellite tv, dvd player, radio and lots more. the experience? awesome. breakfast is served at the kitchen every morning, and every noon, about 4 to 5 cleaner will come in to clean the villa for you.
so the next time when planning for holiday, don’t forget to ask for discount in advance :)
