Those last few years, the villa market has expended a lot. More are more people are investing in Bali and building its own villa. It takes a short time to get profit Bali. The rentals, even if they are cheaper than in other destinations, remain an important budget. To spend your holidays in an affordable private villa it will cost you minimum 70 euros per night. The European tourism tendency those last few years, in part due to the crisis, is still to leave home to go in other town / country but for a shorter period.
People have even more this needs to spend relax holiday but, with the budget restriction, they choose to reduce their time of stay. People working abroad, like Singapore decide to come more often and have a short stay (around 4 days).
Numerous rental agencies make a similar observation: people are coming shorter but also decide to visit and stay in several places rather than few years ago people were coming on holidays and staying in the same villa for approximately 2 weeks.
Being far from Europe, people who are coming in our tropical island prefers to make the most of their stay and is more and more going around the island. It is not surprising to have people asking to their rental agency to combine 2/3 destinations. The guest usually goes to Seminyak or Canggu, then Ubud / Amed and finally Gili Trawangan. Gili Trawangan is an island nearby Lombok. It is worth visiting, for a few days you will feel in paradise.
Agencies, such as Bali je t’aime, adapt to the client and propose more and more solutions to please the customer. They are increasing their offer, putting on disposal more and more villas and organizing pick up and drop off for each destination. They also have scooter and car for rent for the guests who have the freedom desire of visiting the island on their own.
