Versi Bahasa Indonesia:

Bali is a magical place, with so many interesting things to do that will amaze you again and again.

Sure, you want to experience Bali to the fullest, but all the luxurious water villas, cliffside resorts or unique accommodations are way too unaffordable.

How about going budget in Bali? It doesn’t mean having a boring cookie-cutter overnight experience in a cramped space, at least not in Bali.

4. Villa living on a budget – Surprise Room in Ubud Villas (Now closed)

Ubud Villas are chic and classy, but notorious for being expensive as well.

But do you know – you can actually stay in one of these fabulous villas on a budget?


The folks who manage a group of these villas offer a special rate to stay in one of the spare rooms in their villas at a fraction of the published rate!


So where’s the catch? Thing is, there isn’t really one. You just have to be OK with having to potentially move to another room during your stay (since this offer is for a spare room).


But for short term stayers, chances are actually very low, so you’ve gotten yourself a really good deal.
