BALI BEST IN AUGUST
TRIPADVISOR has news for those Aussies desperate to escape the mid-winter gloom by spending some time in Asia’s tropical warm.
Bali’s average nightly room rates are set to plummet by more than $50 per night in August at places to stay right around the Indonesian holiday island.
TripAdvisor has been searching accommodation internet pages, comparing hotel pricing data on 200 websites across a recent 30-day stretch, to reveal savvy travellers can make a 21 per cent saving by holidaying in Bali this August rather than July.
The data says the July average room rate around Bali is $274, while the number is forecast to drop to $215 in August.
TripAdvisor is highlighting five Bali hotels currently promising great value with Maison Aurelia Sanur (below), a property featuring serene 42 guest rooms that promise “a touch of colonial elegance”, tops by boasting an average nightly price for August 2017 of $131.
ARTOTEL Sanur, Parigata Resort & Spa, and Akana Boutique Hotel fill the next three places with average nightly room rates hovering between $90 and $124.
The list is rounded out by Swiss-Belresort Watu Jimbar (below) – the address is a five-unite walk from Sanur’s famous stretch of sand – with that all-important number sitting at $119 for holidaymakers ready to make reservations via TripAdvisor’s website.
“To make the most of this amazing opportunity to holiday in Bali at good prices travellers can also book tours on TripAdvisor,’’ a media release from the company explains.
“Travellers can enjoy savings from tour prices in the same month and, for example, enjoy savings of 15 per cent on a four hour foodie tour that features an authentic local cooking demonstration by a village chef followed by a walk through the coffee plantation in Gulingan village.”
