Difference between
a luxury villa resort
and hotel resort

Luxury villa resort

It consists mostly or exclusively of villas (think of fancy cottages). They are ideal if you seek seclusion and privacy. Guest count is low. You receive highly personalized service (the staff to guest ratio can be as high as 5 to 1). Peak season rates for two typically run about $500 to $1200 per night.

Luxury hotel resort

Its accommodations are mainly or entirely rooms and suites. They are arranged in the familiar hotel hallway layout (though the buildings are only several stories high and the corridors are usually open aired). These luxury hotel resorts are perfect if you want - as most vacationers do - the big resort experience (many fellow guests, a large pool, and an interesting variety of restaurants and organized activities). Peak season rates for two typically run about $300 to $600 per night.

In planning
your budget,
be aware that..


A 21% surcharge (11% tax plus 10% service charge) is added to bills at upmarket tourist hotels and restaurants.

Not to worry
if your budget is limited

Bali has many small adorable resorts and private cottages in the $75 to $125 a night per couple range to suit individual preferences. Some are on or near the beaches. Some are in the Ubud area hills with superlative views. If you're on a shoestring budget, you can find spartan accommodations for as low as $15 a night.
