What do you look out for when planning for a family holiday in Bali?

Good location, comfort and great prices – a combination of these three factors often determines whether you decide to book that villa.

Some say it’s nearly impossible to get a place with all three, but we beg to differ.

Who says you have to decide between sacrificing a good night’s sleep to keep to your budget and location or renting a cheaper and more comfortable villa but stay in a remote area?

You can actually enjoy comfortable luxurious stays in town that are affordable (under USD 136 a night!) – and they even come with a private pool!
