Solo travellers looking to have the ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ style holiday experience should consider staying in this secluded luxury villa, located in Bali’s cultural capital.
We all know that Bali is Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination, but how many times have you visited the Island of the Gods on your own? When was the last time you brought a diary with you as a guidebook in exchange for an itinerary? And when was the last time you decided not to do anything for the entire day but to settle in a nice villa somewhere in Ubud? If you have yet to experience any of this, then you will most likely be interested in what we are about to say next.
Last year, Visa Global Travel Intentions Study revealed that there was a rise in the amount of solo sojourners, as 24 percent of them chose to explore the world without a companion. Another study conducted by travel inspiration website 101 Holidays also suggested that most of these solo travellers happened to be female, with 58.3 percent. So what is it like to travel all by yourself, especially in a place like Ubud?
Think of the experience as a spiritual detox. You are in an area that was named as Asia’s Best Destination in 2010 by American Conde Nast Traveler, so there are plenty of ways for you to enjoy your time.
But in case you are wondering how you can channel Elizabeth Gilbert, who is searching for a meaning in your life, then the best thing to do is to relax.
In Villa Alamanda, you can sure get the ultimate rest and relaxation retreat. The four-bedroom property is set right on the outskirts of Ubud and is the perfect place for those who seek tranquility. Surrounded by jungle-like gardens, Alamanda attracts guests with its tropical and traditional concept.
The rooms are all furnished with king-sized beds, wooden furniture, alang-alang ceiling, glass sliding doors, and of course, large exotic bathrooms. Each of them also offers a unique design. The master bedroom, for one, boasts artifacts and artwork that are especially created by local artists, giving you the immediate feel of Ubud the first time you walk in. These are highly recommended for honeymooners.
The cinnamon and red room, on the other hand, offers a similar design, but features bright red lamps and paintings that showcase a more seductive feel into the space. And lastly, the garden suite is a separate pavilion house that features its own private deck for guests to lie down and immerse themselves in the quite surroundings.
Aside from the fancy rooms, guests can also take a swim in a pool surrounded by tropical trees. And while the rooms do not have their own televisions, there is a specific media venue for those who wish to stay entertained every once in awhile. They also do not have to worry about the food as the villa provides in-house chefs and staffs that will make sure that you are taken care of.
At the end of the day, Villa Alamanda is a paradise for solo travellers who wish to be left alone. This time it is all about you. It is about focusing on what you want and going after it. So go and live in the moment.
Villa Alamanda is a Balinese-style property that attracts guests with its wooden and traditional material furniture. The villa is 15-minute drive away from Ubud, while it takes 1.5 hour to get there from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Sightseeing arrangements and car rentals can also be made upon request.
