Staying in villas in Bali during your summer Bali holiday may be a great opportunity for your family to spread out and relax in a home-like setting that’s often less expensive than a hotel. Families can also take advantage of features that are not available in many hotels, such as full kitchens, laundry facilities, and even large backyards.
Because you won’t be staying in a traditional hotel or motel, your packing list for a vacation rental in Bali stay may need to be updated. It’s always a good idea to read the listing thoroughly for any surprises, and to contact the rental owner with any concerns regarding what to bring for your holiday rental. You will also need little extra organization in terms of meal preparation, leisure activities, road trip things, beach gear, and so on.
When it’s time to pack for your holiday villa in Bali, take a look at our list of must-have goods:
Know What Is Provided in Your Bali Villas
Usually, vacation rentals and villas in Bali mostly provide the basic amenities. In the kitchen, you can find cookware and dinnerware. Mattress pads, bedspreads, and pillows . All paper goods, soaps, staples, personal items, and linens must be brought with you. Occasionally, items like as salt, pepper, trash bags, cleaning supplies, and paper products will be left behind by prior visitors, but you will need to gather such items for your own use.
Stocking the Kitchen
Having a kitchen where we can cook our own food and save a lot of budget is the true reasons why people choose villas in Bali over hotels. However, it’s very rare to find a villa kitchen in Bali with complete stock of spices. You’ll find some salt and sugar if you’re lucky. Some sophisticated villa have coffee machines, ovens, and microwaves but still lacking on bottle opener. So, you might want to bring:
- Spices: Salt, Pepper, Sugar, Dry Herbs, Garlic Powder, Cinnamon Powder and other usual herbs you use for cooking!
- Your favourite coffee and tea
- Bottle opener and corkscrew
- Your favourite brand of coffee creamer
- Two key knives & plastic cutting board
You can always shop for groceries in Bali, but you might not find your favourite brand here. Also, herbs and spices are quite expensive especially when you need to buy a variety of them. You won’t also need the whole bottle of spices, so try to bring what you can from home!
