Accommodation is King when you are looking for a place to travel to because let’s face it, we want the comforts of home while not at home. Travelling can be stressful, it can be exhilarating and fun but at the end of the day, it’s always nice to come back to a familiar, comfortable safe zone.
While hotels have been at the forefront for many years because of their incredible service and convenience, they are also really expensive and essentially all you get is a single room. Now don’t get us wrong, we love hotels too, but have you ever considered renting a villa instead?
This is why we think you should…
1. It Feels Like Home In The Middle Of Paradise
At the end of a busy day, you want to be able to walk into a beautiful sanctuary that makes you feel at home.
2. It’s Affordable
The best part is that villas can accommodate any type of traveller and any type of budget! If you bring your family or friends along, you are able to split the cost up between you, making it even more affordable.
3. It Requires A Single Booking
If you were to stay at a hotel with friends and family. You would have to book out a room for every two people joining. This can become confusing and as other people book out rooms, you may end up with rooms spread over different floors of the hotel. With a villa, you only need to make one booking and then you can fight over who gets the best room when you get there!
4. It’s Super Easy To Book
With companies like Airbnb, it makes it super easy to book online! You just type in your desired area, look for a place to stay and pay. It’s so simple.
5. Private Pool
Tired of sharing the pool with the kids of 10 different families? Us too. Having a villa allows you to relax in complete silence or you could drown out the silence with your own music without any complaints.
6. Customize Your Own Tailored Experiences
Just like hotels, many villas offer bespoke services. You can plan your own private, customizable sightseeing trip and not have to share in the experience with others on a group tour. Villa owners are often local and can give you the best advice on where to eat, what to see and what to do.
7. Again, It’s Private
A little Shy? Don’t want to be disturbed, looking for some peace and quiet. A villa is perfect because you only have to handle yourself.
8. Talk About Unique
Many villas you can hire are completely unique. They have everything from luxury eco bamboo huts to treehouses overlooking the ocean.
9. Do Your Own Cooking Or Don’t…
Have any specific dietary needs or just like to cook for yourself? This is a great way to experiment with different local foods. Attend a cooking class and then practice the recipe yourself.
You also don’t need to cook at all. Some villas even come with a personal chef! Well if that’s not luxury, I don’t know what is.
10. Live Like The Locals
Maybe you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the tourist trade. Book a villa out of town and live among the locals for a more authentic experience. The world is at your command.
