Villa Versus Hotels..Whats your Holiday Style??

….As I sit on my banana lounge, in the warm sun….I contemplate my surroundings..My abode for the next 7 nights is a luxury villa in Canngu Beach, Bali…I can hear the waves crashing in the distance, the bamboo chimes are quietly singing as the summer breeze gently tickles them…Its nice, really nice..and peaceful..Exactly what is needed to recharge, and think about the year ahead……However….I miss the noise of kids splashing in the pool, waiters to make cocktails..and the Lobby Bar for pre dinner drinks…..Hmmmm..Does this indicate I prefer a Hotel Over a Private Villa…..The answer is yes.. I love people watching, I love the organised Yoga on the beach, I love meeting strangers from all over the world and insisting they must catch when next in Oz or we are a visitor in their country…The Hotel wins if you like to mix it up…The Villa Wins if you like more seclusion…

Private Villas can be great if you are with a group of friends or family, Or a romantic getaway with your lover….with no interference from the outside world……Hotels can be great if you are taking the kids..they will find some mates, create great holiday memories  and give the grown ups  a little breather…I find kids can get a little bored stuck within the confines of a villa only environment..

So, the best option as far I can tell, is a Private Villa within the Hotel..A luxury resort to take advantage of all it has to offer..with the idyllic serenity of escaping to your own private pool for a midnite nudey swim, or to chill with a drink and think how lucky we are to be on holidays…..Thats the perfect blend for me…

I have been fortunate to stay in both and here are my some of my favourites from across the globe….Whats your perfect blend for a holiday treat..
