Family, friends, and the perfect vacation:

Welcome to the secret world of private villas

There’s a moment in life when we begin to desire for a little more than we used to. It may feel weird at first, but it’s a perfectly normal feeling: as we grow up, we tend to look for more comfort, less complications, and equal fun than before.

Usually, the process begins with the little things: buying a tastier wine at the supermarket, getting a better mattress to sleep through the night, choosing a more reliable car. Each of these choices carries a new meaning too: I’m doing this now to feel better in the future. Hope, it happens, works as the perfect fuel for making better choices.

The change is also extensive to vacations and leisure time: suddenly, isolated beaches without amenities and services make us doubt; complicated itineraries tire us in advance; cheap hostels hosting nightly beer pong championships don’t sound as appealing as they once used to.

Traditional hotels don’t make the cut either: hefty prices aside, the prospect of being confined to a room may do the trick if we’re attending a business conference or having a romantic escapade, but when it comes to a full-fledged vacation with family and friends, we need to do better. Finding the exact combination of privacy, space and amenities without the rigidness and standardization of hotels may strike as hard, but there’s a perfect answer to it: private villas in dream-like tropical destinations.

Earning paradise

There are three qualities that make villas stand a whole level above hotels: variety, pricing, and possibilities. Price-wise, they tend to be more affordable than hotels, where drinks alone can send the bill well into outer space. As for variety, villas are what you want them to be: from calm eco-lodges to palatial homes able to accomodate entire wedding entourages, the options are out there.

In addition, the most interesting aspect about villas is not related to a specific amenity or location, but to the possibilities they give: villas adapt to what the visitors want and expect, and not the other way around. Dreaming of a barbecue party under the stars? That’s an easy one. Thinking of an infinity pool facing the ocean? It can be arranged. Looking for privacy, but also for extra services? Look no further. Endless possibilities are certainly a better choice than fixed offerings.

For example, if you’re thinking of spending some time in Bali, the Canggu area has quite a selection of villas to evaluate: from forest sanctuaries to impressive oceanfront residences, there are plenty of alternatives to plan the perfect vacation.

Healthier foods, steadier jobs, better vacations: the adult phase in our lives comes with a whole new series of responsibilities, but that doesn’t mean we should settle for less - quite the opposite in fact. Time off is more precious than it’s ever been, and it is our job to make it worth it.
