If you’ve spent the past few years cooped up at home, it’s time to dust off your passport! Now is the time to make up for lost time and head out into the world. Still debating what your first destination should be? Read on to find out why Bali is the ultimate destination for revenge travel in 2023.
1. Amazing “back to nature” experiences
The Island of the Gods offers epic opportunities for getting back to nature and exploring the great outdoors. Of course, Bali is famed for its surf breaks which cater to seasoned surfers and absolute beginners alike. Heading out to neighbouring Nusa Penida, the scene is set for snorkelling and diving excursions – if you’re lucky, you might get to swim with manta rays!
And let’s not forget about Bali’s tropical green vistas. Guided bicycle tours will introduce you to the island’s verdant landscape and quaint villages, while sunrise volcano treks will simply take your breath away. Our concierge team will be happy to arrange these excursions for you – all you have to do is ask!
2. Rich culture unlike anywhere else in the world
After spending the past few years surrounded by the familiar, most of us are yearning to experience something new and inspiring. Bali is the ultimate destination for reawakening your sense of wonder. The Island of the Gods is world famous for its rich culture and unique traditions which have been passed down through generations.
Imagine discovering ancient temples built on majestic clifftops, with colourful ceremonies adding a whole new dimension to your visit. At Chandra Villas, you can also dive deeper into the local way of life by learning to make Balinese offerings and dressing in local clothing. Many guests credit these immersive cultural experiences as being the highlight of their stay at Chandra Villas:
“The staff makes you feel as though you are family and will spend time with you to explain about Bali’s culture and traditions. They will let you know where the best places to go are and they will ensure your stay is the best it could possibly be.”
3. Incredibly family friendly
The past few years have forced many families to spend a lot of time stuck indoors. That’s why it’s high time to treat the whole brood to something special and reconnect as a family. Bali has always been a favourite destination for family travel – and for good reason, too! Balinese culture places great importance on children in the household and as a result, kids are not merely tolerated but cherished and celebrated. Visitors are often amazed by the royal treatment their kids receive in Bali! Practically everyone you meet will go out of their way to make your kids feel welcome.
From family-friendly restaurants to fun-filled kids’ activities, there is so much to keep the whole family entertained during your stay in Bali. As for accommodation, nothing beats the ease and comfort of a private pool villa. The kids will love splashing around the pool while parents enjoy a well-deserved break from house chores and work engagements. The grown-ups can even head out for a night on the town while our nannies look after the kids. Read more about family-friendly features at Chandra Villas.
4. Stellar track record in health and safety
Throughout the pandemic, Bali adopted several practices designed to keep both visitors and locals safe, from temperature checks to social distancing measures and mask guidelines. This thoughtful approach has more than paid off. Since international flights were reinstated in early 2022, the island has not only recovered but is actually thriving. (A case in point: Bali hosted the G20 summit in late 2022, welcoming world leaders from China, the US and beyond!)
Though the rules have been relaxed, visitors’ health and safety continues to be a top priority. That’s why Chandra Villas is so proud to be CHSE Certified. This coveted seal of approval from the local government means we have gone the extra mile to ensure the health and safety of all our guests and staff by maintaining the highest standards of hygiene.

5. Affordable luxury – you deserve it!
Toughing it out these past couple of years definitely means you deserve something special. At the same time, the current economic climate doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. Luckily, Bali offers affordable luxury. Think luxe private pool villas, world-class gourmet dining and epic, once-in-a-lifetime experiences at a fraction of the price you would pay in other popular destinations. In Bali, you don’t need a million-dollar budget to feel like a million bucks. So go ahead and treat yourself – you deserve it!
