Tourists who yearn to spend summer and holiday season in Bali this year is facing peak season.

This July, many resorts in Bali are swarmed by visitors who want to spend school holiday that comes with Ramadhan, Muslim’s holy month. Many property managers note the rise of villa rental numbers in popular areas such as Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Nusa Dua and Ubud. From all types of accommodations, Bali villa in Seminyak ranked among one of the most favorite accommodations for local and foreign tourists.

Seminyak has become a favorite area to visit in Bali for years beside Kuta and Legian, and this month, many families are coming to spend their holidays there. Villa becomes a choice accommodation for families because of its large capacity, private atmosphere and home like situation, but with facilities and services as good and complete as regular hotels. Now, the trend of choosing accommodation is shifting to more private and exclusive place instead of common hotels. Villas in Seminyak were also chosen for their strategic locations, giving the guests close access to various places of interests.

According to Made Widya Darma,Director of Sales Astana Hospitality, Seminyak offers wide varieties of travel options, makes it an ideal place to visit by families who may have different taste in holiday activities. For example, location such as Jalan Laksamana is “…the street you should head for to satisfy your shopping craving.” Or, if you prefer a place where families can spend the day together, “…a day in Waterbom Water Park is great way to spend a day.” Bali villa in Seminyak offers close access to these popular destinations, but at the same time gives privacy.

Many tourists from big cities such as Jakarta, Medan, Bandung and Surabaya choose villas as means to escape the urban jungle. Beachside villas, meanwhile, are now popular among surfers. Guests who look for good waves often come in a group and rent one villa together to save money. Villas in Seminyak are no longer viewed as accommodations for the affluent only; they have become common options for visitors from any walks of life.

Of course, peak season and growing numbers of visitors to Seminyak also take their tolls. For example, rate wars between villas have put existing villas in harsh competition. In order to face competition with new villas that are growing rapidly in numbers, many Seminyak villas underwent renovations and got new facilities to serve guests. Many travelers also must put up with new villas that offer plain design and low quality services, as a consequence of rate wars and tight competitions between villa owners to attract guests.

To prevent decrease in service quality, Bali officials have planned to apply regulation regarding of standard villa rate, including for Bali villa in Seminyak. Tourists are advised to be more careful when choosing the villa to stay in. Nevertheless, it will be long time before villa owners in Seminyak, as well as other areas in Bali, run out of guests.
