Where to find the best value pool villas on earth (starting at 75 USD!)

Many of us have most likely seen and fallen in love with those pictures of beautifully designed, luxurious pool villas, and it sure is a dream coming true to stay in one of these. Especially so, when the pool offers an amazing view of the sunset, a valley, or the sea.

The country where you will most likely find the most affordable, luxurious villas with their very own pool is…

Indonesia!

Thailand should be close second, but it is getting more expensive there and Indonesia simply has a lot more diversity to offer when it comes to pool villas. They’re a real thing in Indonesias “hotel culture”.

Not only in Bali you’ll find heaps of hotels that offer pool villas, be it solely or partly, and most of them are more affordable than you’d think. While in the Maldives or other typical honeymoon destinations it’s hard to find a pool villa under 1,000 USD per night, you can stay in one in Indonesia for a whole week or even two!

Personally, we haven’t yet had the chance to properly travel Indonesia, but we have been to Bali, Lombok and Gili Trawangan. While the island is awesome, with many budget options to stay at, we’ve decided to treat ourselfes to the Kelapa Pool Villas. For just over 100 Dollars per night including a really nice breakfast served by our own pool every morning, it was a fantastic experience. You can see our villa on the title picture of this post.

All our villa examples in the following properties were found via trivago.com on June 13th to June 20th, 2017 and include all taxes. All of these properties received excellent ratings!
You can most likely even save another 10 to 40 Dollars each night on the following villas by using this technique.

Even though there are many exciting properties all around Indonesia, Bali and surrounding islands definitely have the most choice and the most tourists, so that’s where you’ll find the most amazing deals:

Umae Villa
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
US$74 / night incl. bfast

This should be one of the cheapest – and still nice – places with an own pool that you can book. Share it with someone and you got it down to 37 Dollars. And yes, that’s including breakfast and WiFi. Try finding a hostel bunk bed in Sydney for that…

Zoe Villa Canggu
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
US$97 / night excl. bfast

Another really cheap place in Ubud, with your very own pool right at the doorstep. This place is probably the best value we could find as the villas are very large and modern.

The Light Exclusive Villas & Spa
Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia
US$134 / night excl. bfast

A bit more modern, but you don’t get your own garden in this place in Seminyak, close to the beach in Bali. It’ll set you back US$134 a night and even an optional breakfast comes with it at just a few Dollars extra.

Dampati Villas
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
US$192 / night incl. bfast

While this one is a bit more expensive, you’ll actually get a massive two-storey house which sleeps five people, so therefore it’s still extremely good value. For about US$45 on top, you’ll be in on an even larger one which sleeps 8 people and you can have your own pool party in there. For US$30 a night per person with breakfast included!

Puri Wulandari
Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
US$272 / night incl. bfast

Even if you’re after pure luxury villas, Indonesia is still the place to go to. One of these huge amazing hillside villas in Ubud with their own private infinity pool overlooking the valley would cost US$272 per night for three people with breakfast. So this is really not too bad if you consider what you get!

    I have never been to Asia, but the affordability of such beautiful lodgings makes it even more appealing.

      Hey Jamie!

      Asia is a great place to travel too, not just because it is affordable, but it also has some of the most beautiful scenery in the world! 🙂 Make sure to visit Asia soon and you’ll see what you’re missing 😀

    The pool villas are so romantic and beautiful. It is great to see that they do not all cost a bomb. It would be a great experience to stay in one when in Indonesia. Will definitely refer to your post when we plan something in this direction.

      Hey Flunkingmonkey!

      Yes it really is amazing what you can get in Bali! The same villas in other countries would cost 10x the price! Great for photographers right?!

      Happy Travels!
