Reasons to Choose a Luxury Villa Over a Hotel for your next Vacation

The travel industry is changing, as well as the mindsets of the luxury travelers. Where the 5-star hotel was once the luxury experience that most people want, experiences are now moving towards vacations where privacy and wellness are prioritized. Luxury villas have become the trend, tempting travelers with offers of stunning locations and private chefs. For the traveler who wants to avoid crowded swimming pools and the busyness that a hotel environment brings, here are some reasons that should convince you to choose a luxury villa rental for your next vacation.

Hotels Can’t Match the Rates

A luxury villa price comes together as a whole, you won’t get charged by rooms you used. Comparing the price of 3 rooms of a 5-star hotel for 3 night’s stay plus meals, the price of a luxury villa for 6 people is much better. As more people are included in the villa package, the cheaper it gets. If you fill as many rooms as possible in a villa, the cost gets spread among more people. If you’re booking an extended stay or traveling with a group of people, you’ll find that few hotels can compete with the value of money you get from a luxury villa. With self-contained facilities like a full kitchen, gym and swimming pool, you’ll save significantly on expensive charges for activities, food and drinks.

Hotels Can’t Beat the Privacy of a Luxury Villa

With a luxury villa, you have tons of privacy and don’t have to share resort amenities with strangers. It’s offered at a level that 5 star hotels can’t beat. When you book to stay in a luxury villa you have a whole property to yourself for peace and security. Most luxury villas have gyms and game rooms to keep everyone entertained and fit. A luxury villa usually comes with a private pool or jacuzzi just for yourself and your guests. You can use every facility anytime you want without having to wait for your turn. You won’t be annoyed with noise complaints. You’ll have the privilege of arranging private massages, have the bar and pool to yourself. There’s no stress with staying quiet for other guests.

Stunning Locations

Most luxury villas have stunning locations, beautiful seascapes and amazing jungle escapes. Luxury villas offer more secluded locations than hotels and have exclusive locations, whether that be on the edge of a cliff or lush tropical location with spectacular ocean views. Hotels offer scenic locations too but the hectic environment can dampen the beautiful surroundings.

Personalized Stay

From ocean-looking private infinity pools to outdoor BBQ sets or Jacuzzis, luxury villas offer an individualized kind of luxury. Each villa is unique, with a distinctive style of its own. Hotels can’t provide that individualized kind of experience. As a guest at a luxury villa, you have the freedom to set your schedule. You don’t need to worry about what time the pool opens and breakfast ends, everything depends on your time. If you’re staying in a hotel for a couple of days, you’ll notice that the food becomes repetitive. In a luxury villa you can enjoy your meals in a new setting every day or have a private chef personalize a menu for your exact needs. 

Luxury Villas have more space than a Hotel

Luxury Villas offer more space per dollar you pay. While you might enjoy a huge suite at a 5-star hotel, luxury villas are far more than hotel counterparts, not only in interiors but also outdoors. Think of a grand living room, open kitchens, beautifully designed outdoor pavilions, stunning interiors with collectible paintings, heavenly gardens and big bathrooms with baths overlooking nature. Some luxury villas even have cinema and game rooms.

Family Holidays and Delicious Food 

Travelling with kids isn’t easy, but you can make it easier by renting a luxury villa. You’ll have a full kitchen to cook, big gardens and spaces to play so you don’t need to worry too much about the kids making a mess. Hotels have a huge kitchen cooking massive amounts of food for a lot of guests, the quality of the food served can’t be the same with a private dinner cooked in a luxury villa kitchen. Luxury villas provide Private Chefs, who know where to get fresh ingredients specifically selected according to their guest’s tastes.

Luxury villas offer extra add-ons that set them apart from hotels. It could be a cozy, pampering staff of maids, Villa Manager and Private Chef, elegant, sophisticated interiors, marvelous gardens, stunning views, fabulous infinity pools, a broad range of quality amenities or a combination of some or all of these elements.
