WIN a 7-Day Luxury Bloggers Escape to Phuket worth over $10,000USD

The team at Villa Getaways is very excited to be kicking off the new year with the launch of our very first travel competition, launching 21st of January 2016!    Blogging is a topic that’s close to our heart, because being in the travel industry we at Villa Getaways understand exciting travel stories provoke Wanderlust. Writing great content is an art, and we’re thrilled to be showing our appreciation to the world-wide blogging community by offering one lucky blogger, and their partner plus up to 6 of their friends, the opportunity to live-it-up in one of our best Luxury Phuket Vacation Villas for 7 glorious nights, and write about the experience! Included are a bunch of add-ons and return economy flights from any major airport in the world. Earlier this year we launched hashtag #TheGetawayLife after hosting social media personalities Jay Alvarez and Helen Owen to Phuket and Bali, which generated considerable interest for Villa Getaways. This time, we aim to do it differently, and give less known, talented bloggers the chance to live it up like a King or Queen with a world-class villa experience.. And of course.. Write about it!

Villa Getaways has incredible villas all over the world, but when it comes to exotic destinations Phuket took the leader board...

Helen Owen and Zack Kalter’s Dream Bali Vacation

Helen Owen and Zack Kalter’s Dream Bali Vacation

We’re so excited to present Helen Owen‘s review of her Luxury Villa Vacation in Bali with Zack Kalter. Such a treat to host two Instagram’s hottest rising stars on their first ever trip to the Island of Bali.  Enjoy Helen’s wholesome, and down-to-earth review of their experience touring, exploring and indulging in some of our best luxury homes Bali has to offer. Villa Latitude in Uluwatu truly set the bar extremely high for us – the moment we saw the view I think we both knew we were not going to be having a regular vacation.  Having Villa Latitude as our first taste of Bali was the perfect intro to what we later learned is a very dynamic island. The ocean view from breakfast in the dining room (which is more like a giant glass open-sided terrarium that also happens to contain all of my tropical dream-house pinterest boards meshed into one) set the stage for our entire day. We spent hours exploring the grounds of the villa and kept discovering hallways and hot tubs and tucked away corners we hadn’t seen before, thus my “favorite” rooms changed on an hourly basis. And I can’t not mention the pool. Photos speak for themselves, but Villa Latitude essentially has the infinity pool of all infinity pools. It really doesn’t get much better, or much bluer. The pool is also long enough that you could easily swim lengths and get a Michael Phelps caliber work-out, or host the world’s best pool party with everyone you follow on instagram and probably more. Our only regret from our short time in Uluwatu was that  — shocker — we didn’t have more...
5 useful tips for booking an affordable luxury villa vacation

5 useful tips for booking an affordable luxury villa vacation

‘Affordable Luxury’ is in demand. A term which was once deemed a sarcastic analogy, is now a buzz word in the luxury villa market. Luxurious living has always involved larger spaces and the provision of exclusive features such as personal service, technical mod-cons, desirable amenities, infinity pools, stunning art and stylish furnishings. However, those who enjoy the finer things in life are now enjoying luxury for less.  We here at Villa Getaways Luxury Villa Rentals can show you how to have the holiday of your dreams without breaking the bank. We’ve hand selected a collection of excellent villas for you. They all exhibit everything you would expect from a top-shelf luxury experience, but what they do lack is the price tag. Of course you might not find these properties in the most exclusive locations, but they still possess all of the amenities you would expect in a 5 star villa. How to choose your next affordable luxury villa vacation;   Forget Location, location, location; Choosing villas which are slightly off the beaten track is a smart idea when wanting to save money. Very often, you can find a charming villa in a beautiful and interesting location, where you can experience the real culture and personality of a region as opposed to hitting the more well-know tourist spots, which have high occupancy rates and therefore cost more. Share a villa with your friends or family! Gather a group of friends or your extended family and share the bill.  You’ll be surprised how affordable some of our top end villas become when you share the cost. Travel Off Season;  In Bali, the rainy season is from October through to March, and in Thailand the...
