How to stay in Bali's luxury hotel for less


I will come right out and say it, I love to stay in a luxury hotel. But what I dont have is enough funds, so I always looking for ways to save. Generally, there are 3 ways to ethically do this.
1. Research
2. Aviation of the best offers
3. By leveraging hotel loyalty programme

As someone who love to travel around, as well as being a travel blogger, I make a good research hahaha!This was my first time traveled to Indonesia, Bali. I wanted to stay somewhere private, relax and cheap, ideally a private villa. This is how I came to love Agoda.com, a platform that allow travelers to book discounted hotel rooms.




So like I've mentioned, It's a 4 persons trip and I spent only a total of RM438 staying in three different luxury private villa, Bali @  5 days 4 nights. How do I find cheap hotels in Bali? Here's my tips!






The first 2 nights : Astana Batu Belig, Kerobokan

The first villa I booked on Agoda in Seminyak, conveniently located for a beach trip and priced at just RM815 for 2 nights. When I found Astana, I not only got my wish staying in a private villa, but also the best services I ever seen. It's within walking distance to the BatuBelig beach, the rooms are equipped with facilities and amenities such as private swimming pool, huge bath tub, safety box, free Wifi and etc.

At first glance, it was a beautiful and luxurious suite. 





Check out the the bathroom! Omg the bath tub!





However there's some incident happened here. Four of us were dragging our suitcases to the hotel at 10pm. But the moment I checked in, I was told that there's only one king size bed for 2 persons.  As soon as I found out I was very frustrating, knowing that we would need 2 beds for 4 persons, so I booked Astana because of the website written: 1 king size bed and 2 queen size bed. I requested to talk to the manager. What happened next surprised me, he listened to my story and he apologized again. He admitted his mistake and that he will contact the Agoda to ensure it doesn't happen to the next guest.Already, I was cooling off a bit. By the end the services were good and professional. It was a great experience indeed.

3rd night: Twin Island Villa, Nusa Lembongan 

We caught a ferry to the island, Nusa Lembongan. It was a little "uncivilized" but also the most peaceful and relaxing place you could wish for. It was an ideal place for snorkeling or diving activities, one of the reason we came here was to dive. So we spent 1 night here at stayed at Twin Island Villa, RM156 per night. 

Situated on the south end of the island with panoramic views overlooking the ocean view, a place that enable you to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This is what an island living about. 



Hello, meet my room!



I never stayed in a room like this. It's a wooden structure villa with a nice balcony view, I enjoyed it nonetheless. Initially I was expecting a cluster of shops and bars, just like KohLipe Island, but unfortunately there's only a few restaurants along the shore. To reach Twin Island, you'll have to take the shuttle car and go through a "jungle" which takes around 10 mins to arrive. And one thing, the road rough to get to the villa. Yes I know most roads there aren't great, but this was next level lolllll... 

Snacks and beer, anyone?The mini fridge was stocked with everything from carbonated drinks and beers.


The bathroom comes with toiletries such as shampoo, towers , toothbrush shower-cap and etc. I love the ambient so peaceful. 

Breakfast are included! 


It's a perfect escape from everything

Our days were mainly spent diving, sitting at the pool side, or exploring the island. Nothing much to do. There's a few hidden gems which you can go and visit such as Dream Beach, and The Blue Lagoon. I recommend you to ask a local how to get to these amazing places, in case you are lost! 




If you are looking for great food, you can dine in Sunrise Hut's Lembongan, its just 5 mins walking distance.
