You Mean You Don’t Have a Butler?

More and more people are understanding the value in staying in a private villa. Not only do you have your own space and freedom but also it’s the additional services that you just don’t have in a hotel. Staying in a villa when you have a large group or small family can work out to be cheaper than a hotel plus if you are traveling with children they can also have their own bedroom.

Here are a few services that villas can include

Butler – it’s not just the celebrities that should have a butler. In Bali most villas will come with a full time butler or a team of butlers depending on the villa and number of guests. Do you want to lay by the swimming pool while someone brings you a cocktail? Wouldn’t that be nice.

Villa Manager – it’s always nice to have someone who can help plan your stay in Bali, help you arrange day trips, restaurant reservations, provide recommendations on what to see and do during your stay. Ministry of Villas also offers a complimentary concierge service to assist with planning the trip prior to arriving in Bali.

Chef – many of the 4 and 5 star villas now include a full time chef to prepare meals for you and your guests. This is a great option if you have special dietary requirements to cater for or allergies that make eating out whilst on holiday’s a nightmare. You simply order the meals either off a menu or talk with the chef about family favourites that you would like prepared. You simply pay for groceries that the staff buy and there is no need to go anywhere near a kitchen for your trip.

Chauffeur – all of our villas include return airport transfers to the villa so there is no risk in getting lost. However villas can also include a 7 seater car with Chauffeur for upto 8 hours per day. Your personal driver is on standby for the day and you can arrange day trips to different tourist attractions or they will be more then happy to drop you and the group to the beach and wait for you.

Housekeeping – you didn’t think you would be expected to clean while enjoying time off in Bali did you? All of our villas include housekeeping to tidy up the villa, arrange the laundry services, wash up and simply make sure you don’t lift a finger whilst on taking a holiday in Bali.


Security – it’s nice to know you have security and many villas will have full-time guards or night time security. Additional security can also be arranged if the villa doesn’t include any in the daily rate.

Nanny – this isn’t always included however child-minding services can be arranged for as little as $5 per hour. With any of the villa services it’s up to you if you would like the staff to wait on you hand and foot or you would like more space and them not to be around the villa during certain times of the day. Once you stay in a villa you’ll never stay in a hotel again.
