Many people are more than ready to book a trip to Bali once the borders reopen and International travels are allowed again.
For those who have been in Indonesia during the past months and are planning to stay, it’s not all doom and gloom as green light has been given for domestic travels and Bali has reopened to local tourists again.
Right here on the island, daily life is gradually returning to “normal”, cafes and shops started operating again and natural attractions like beaches and waterfalls have also reopened.
Even so, the question remains, is it safe enough to travel?
The answer clearly goes back to personal circumstances and judgement. But if a tropical getaway is on your agenda, we strongly believe that a villa holiday in Bali is one of the safest travel options for the following reasons.
1. Privacy and Safety
Renting your own villa means you and your travel companions have all the space to yourself and won’t have to share it with other people – a big plus in times like these.
You get to enjoy the luxury of your own private pool and self-isolate in the your villa holiday in Bali without having to worry about social distancing.
2. Staying in Comfortably
Unlike staying in a hotel room where you’re mostly out exploring during the day and only using the room to sleep and shower, staying in a villa is a different experience.
Most villas in Bali are designed to make staying in truly enjoyable and far from boring. What could be better than lazy days by the pool and lovely al fresco dinner with your nearest and dearest?
3. Strict Hygiene Measures
As one of the government requirements, all holiday rentals have stepped up their cleanliness measures and are making sure that all staff are healthy and fully briefed to keep up with the new hygiene standard.
The same rule applies to public spaces like shops and restaurants. Facilities are disinfected regularly, body temperatures are checked upon entering premises and hand sanitizers are provided in every corner.

4. Outdoor Activities
If you prefer to explore, Bali offers a huge array of outdoor activities with abundance of fresh air and sunshine.
From beaches to waterfalls, rice fields to mountains, there are plenty of options to enjoy nature while respecting social distancing rules.
The island’s open spaces in contrast to densely populated cities makes it the best place to avoid crowds.
5. Private Transfers
Traveling in Bali with a car and private driver has always been the most common and comfortable transportation option.
Private drivers follow strict safety measures as well during these times so you can explore the island without worry.
Even better, booking a private driver also means supporting locals who have been struggling through the pandemic due to the lack of tourism.
Traveling in general won’t ever be the same again at least for a long while. While people cannot wait to travel again, social distancing and enhanced hygiene standards will remain important factors to take into consideration when booking a trip.
Thus, as travel restrictions ease, we expect to see an increasing trend in private villa holiday in Bali for the reasons mentioned above.
