Bali Holiday - Top 5 Reasons to Choose a Villa over a Hotel

Thinking of a holiday to Bali but can't decide between a villa or a hotel? Here are the TOP 5 reasons guests choose to stay with us in one of our private pool villas:


Simply put, a villa offers more space per dollar that you pay. Staying in a villa can be amazingly cost effective when compared to booking a hotel room, the more people you can get to come along with you, the cheaper it will be. For example, our villa PLAYGROUNDS sleeps 11 people with standard bedding, at just AUD$45 per person, per night for a luxury pool villa with many facilities - that price is hard to beat!


A villa offers plenty of space for everyone to socialise together in a relaxed and comfortable environment - whether you do that in the lounge or living room, poolside, or on the rooftop terrace with a cocktail in hand, it's up to you! A villa is also your accommodation and a venue at the same time! Travelling with a group? Having a birthday party? Family celebration? A villa is a place where you can hold your event or party and is also a place for everyone to unwind, without the hassle of extra planning or travel. 


You don't travel to Bali to spend all your time in a hotel room. When you stay with Leacott Retreats, the villa is all part of your holiday experience. You'll have privacy without being confined to your room, plus nobody to share the pool or garden with. You can laze about in your swimwear all day, read a book on the gazebo, or soak up some sun on one of the sunbeds, it's your space to enjoy your way.


Travelling with kids is never an easy task, but you can make it more enjoyable renting a villa for your holiday. You've got a full size kitchen to make snacks and meals (simply a godsend for those fussy eaters, or ones that like to snack all day) garden space to play, and daily housekeeping so you don't have to worry about the mess! We can also provide baby cots, extra beds, high chairs and pool fencing, plus there's games, books and toys meaning less to squeeze in to your luggage! At our ultimate family villa PLAYGROUNDS we also have an onsite playground with sandpit, slide, climbing wall, blackboard wall with chalk, kids cubby house with play kitchen, utensils and toys, a croquet set, kids bowling set and a drawing station plus a lawn area for running about - Oh, and a playstation console with heaps of games, and a pool table upstairs, plus TVs in each room with movies and kids channels and unlimited WiFi (surely the kids will be happily entertained here!).


On top of value, privacy, space and faciltiies for everyone to enjoy, each of our villas are unique and in popular locations that are sure to impress. Additional features that are on offer are the use of our highly experienced drivers to help you with sightseeing tours and transfers, cocktail service (at our PLAYGROUNDS villa), plus Bali's stunning nightly sunsets in your own backyard at our Canggu villas or just a short stroll to Double Six Beach at our Seminyak villa HIDEAWAYShould you be travelling in a large group of 14+ people you can combine our villas DAYDREAMS and PLAYGROUNDS which are located side-by-side at a special price - just get in touch with us.

* The Garden Bali - Early Learning Centre

Leave the kids at The Garden Kids Club, a drop-in learning centre for children aged 2 years to 12 years (children under 2 years must be accompanied by a carer).

Depending on the time and day, there will be learning games, arts and crafts, storytelling, Lego building, kids’ cooking, gardening along with indoor and outdoor activities. The Garden is not just for childcare. It’s a learning environment where kids are challenged to create, make and discover through play, craft, cooking, gardening and the arts.
