36 Best Private Pool Villas in Bali

Best Private Pool Villas in Bali

This sexy island is full of exotic private villas …but not all villas come with a private pool!

Skinny dip under the stars. Have a floating breakfast in the pool. Tan with no tan lines! Get a lil’ romantic. And do it all to fit your budget…because this is Bali where you can get a private pool villa as cheap as $33 per night.

BUT, Keep in mind!

Half the private pool villas in Bali are in shitty locations. So don’t go booking the first private pool villa you find! You need an expert to find the best private villas that are worth your time. Hi, that’s me. 

I’ve been living in and traveling around Bali for nearly a year now – finding the BEST private Bali villas on the island.

I’ve handpicked 36 of the Best Private Pool Villas in Bali – in the best locations with the most incredible staff – to make you feel like god damn royalty.

In this list, you’ll find affordable private pool villas for solo travelers, romantic private pool villas for couples, and apacious private pool villas for families. Private villas in Bali are much much cheaper than private villas you’d find on most other exotic islands in Asia or The Caribbean. So YES, you can afford this.

Pro Tip

Keep in mind that the prices of these villas fluctuate based on the time of year! Before you pass on a villa that’s too expensive, check to see the price on your ideal dates in Bali! 

Okay, let’s get naked.

Hotel Tugu

Forget the trendy Canggu hotels. When you stay at Hotel Tugu, you truly feel like you are in Indonesia. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with a ceremonial Hindu blessing and as you walk to your room, you’re sur- rounded by Indonesian culture with a collection of ancient Indo art and history. Go big with a private villa that offers a private garden pool and bathtub overlooking your very own private koi pond. The amazing Ji Restaurant is on the terrace above, and The Lawn Beach Club is across the street.

Heads Up: You can’t get a GoJek (like Uber) here because of the local taxi drivers who control the taxi zone. You’ll have to call a local driver or use the hotel’s driver to go any- where that isn’t within walking distance. So, when you stay here, plan on en- joying the area rather than hopping around. There’s enough to entertain you right here.
