A precious natural landscape combined with a rich culture, artistic heritage and friendly local people has contributed to making Bali one of the world’s most sought-after tropical destinations. Amongst other international acclaims, Bali has been voted the # 1 top island for six consecutive years by prestigious New York based TRAVEL + LEISURE magazine. Services and facilities are available to accommodate the diverse needs of travellers from back-packers to private jet setters with appropriate classes of accommodation to suit.
The concept of luxury accommodation in Bali has shifted significantly over recent years. It all began with high rise hotels featuring hundreds of opulent suite rooms and this then filtered through to resorts and boutique hotels. Discerning travellers now consider privacy and personalized service the ultimate indulgence and the impact of private villas on Bali’s tourism industry is beginning to deem multi-room hotels obsolete.
A private villa is now considered a passport to luxury accommodation with all the attractive benefits and privileges that add to the pleasure. A private villa provides holiday makers with a home environment complete with master suite, exclusive bathroom and swimming pool, along with a professional staff that may include a manager, personal chef and spa therapist solely dedicated to make each stay an indulging experience.
The emerging popularity of private villas as an alternative for travellers has motivated both villa owners as well as investors to seek suitable means to market their products through specialized villa rental agencies. The Bali Villa Rental Association (BVRA) was established by and for licensed villa rental agencies operating in Bali with the aim to initiate and maintain a healthy business climate. BVRA is a body that ensures service quality for clients in a segment composed of both villa owners and holiday makers.
