So you’ve booked that plane ticket to the island of the gods, and now it’s time where to stay. There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to choosing just the right Benoa resort for your holiday needs, and chances are, each traveler has difference needs and preference and needs. There are also things you need to consider for when your travel plans need to be canceled – no one wants that, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. So where should you start?
Benoa resort always consider the cost vs the perks
As a guest you’re already paying a lot when booking something like an all-inclusive or luxury Benoa resort. But that doesn’t mean you should expect the cost will include everything. Doing your research and being aware of just what the cost entails will give you a peace of mind.
Also consider the true perks of booking with luxury chain hotels as opposed to a locally-owned villa or rental homes. Rental apartments or villas in Bali can have access to a beach or a beautiful garden just as much as, if not better, than what a hotel room can offer. If it’s just a pool or access to the beach, rethinking your choice is a good move before booking a hotel. Pro-tip: consider facilities like kids program, day activities (picnic, surfing), toddler pool, and such when booking a luxury resort in Bali is on your mind.
Be clear on what all-inclusive truly offers
Traditionally, All-Inclusive mean that your cost of accommodation, all three meals, snacks, some alcohols, twice a day room service, and all the basics living necessities as well as the general housekeeping. But make sure to read the fine print. For example, if you’re looking to join some daily activities they have ready in the resort, you might want to pay an extra fee. The same could be said about things like kids-club if you’re bringing the little one. There are also cases that Benoa resort like any other in the world charge guests with internet access (I know, outrageous). Therefore, before settling on a choice, make sure that you are fully informed of all the important things.

Non-refundable bookings on resorts
This can be a tricky one as this information is often not readily available on their website. You often have to ask the hotel directly or your travel agency in order to find out. So make sure to do it! Knowing whether your bookings are refundable or not would save you from so much headache for if your trip gets cancelled. You never know whether the next pandemic will strike, or if something personal comes up that requires you to postpone all travel plans.
Protection for refunds
Some non-refundable bookings on Benoa resort and other hotels can sometimes be refunded, but in a form of hotel credit or loyalty points. A real cash refund to your credit card or bank account, however, can be another story altogether. Therefore before you book, make sure that you’ve read and are well aware with all of the fine prints.
