Wednesday, 30 December 2020

If you are planning a vacation with your whole family then booking a luxury villa is the right option for you. You can find thousands of villas to choose from, of every shape, variety, and location. Before booking a villa for your vacation hire an experienced agent or tour operator which will assist you in booking the right villa for your stay. Selecting a luxury villa for your vacation can be a bit pricey so you must take your time and explore the different options available. For people who are used to staying in hotels, staying in a villa will be a new experience for them. They are familiar with the whole process of reservations and booking in a hotel whereas renting a villa can be a whole different experience for them.

Here are some things you should consider asking your tour agent before booking a villa. These things will help you to ensure that you enjoy the perfect accommodation with your family and friends.

1. Location- As you know hotels are generally rated according to the services they provide like staying in a 5-star hotel will give you a much more luxurious stay than any other rated hotel. Similarly, you can opt for villas depending upon your budget. If you book a luxurious villa you will be provided with every amenity with luxury and comfort. You will be provided with a theater room, kids' playroom, private spa, tennis court, natural landscapes, and much more, all for your total enjoyment. Quality villas include wonderful staff that assists you with every detail of your vacation, from reservation to check out.

2. Facilities- Different people expect different things so it is very important to discuss with your agent about the things you want in your villa like a swimming pool, kids play area, theater room to keep your kids and your family entertained. If you are a person traveling with your work, you can ask for an office space with an internet facility too in your villa. You are also provided with professional staff to help you with making your stay easy.

3. Staff and service- People’s opinions can vary when it comes to staff and services. Some people ask for an in-house chef and butlers for all-day till their vacation ends while some prefer to be independent and want a chef and butlers only when needed. You can even ask for sample food tasting if you want to hire a chef and can tell him about your allergies to any sort of vegetable, fruit, or dairy products. Besides this, you are provided with staff for daily cleaning, laundry services, and pool cleaning (if included in your villa). You can also ask for arrangements for a barbeque night or a movie night for you and your family.
 
4. Style- Villas are usually privately owned homes so it is mainly designed by the owner or the developer of its own taste so it’s quite impossible to have similar looking properties in terms of style, architecture, and furnishings. It’s important that you feel comfortable and lives up to your dream house fantasy for a few days during your stay, make sure to ask your agent what style of a villa you are looking for. You can find villas with modern style, colonial style, country French style, Victorian style, contemporary or traditional style villas with antique touch in it. Also keep in mind that security deposits are required for any kind of damages to the property or the things in it so be careful with expensive artifacts and antiques available in the villa because the damages can be included in your bill while checking out from the villa and it can be a hefty one, so if you are traveling with children always keep this in mind.
 
5. Online reviews- One of the best options when choosing a luxury villa is to look for online reviews written by other customers and go through their experience of staying at the villa. Reading the reviews of other customers who have previously stayed in that specific villa can give you a hint of knowledge and details of everything you need to know about the villa and its services, from the perspective of a guest. Reviews are a great way to break through all the advertising present and get an honest opinion on the good and bad features of any particular villa.
 
6. Customer service- The customer service of any villa is the most important feature in providing a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Before selecting any villa, it is a great idea to take a look at the customer service the villa offers. Customer service includes the staff and the way they handle your responsibility. You must check if the staff provided to you is helpful and quickly and diligently responds to your concerns. Before making final reservations at any villa you must ensure that you are fully satisfied with the quality of their customer service.
 
7. Safety measures- One of the most important things that you should check while booking a villa is its security measures. Make sure that there is CCTV surveillance installed in the villa and the area you are choosing to stay in is safe from any kind of theft or mishappening.
 
8. Check-in and check-out- This is the important aspect while booking a villa which most people overlook. Your check-in and check-out depend upon the arrival and departure of your flights. On the other hand, some villas generally have their specific check-in and check-out timings which may or may not suit your schedule. So it is very important to discuss this with your agent so that the owner is aware of your situation and do not cancel your bookings and you are charged with no extra cost.
 
Considering all these points will likely help you in choosing the right villa for your vacation. You can even book villas online which is considered an easy option. You can find great deals and offers on villas in Bangalore if you are planning a vacation there.
