Indonesia’s best-known island, the holiday mecca Bali, is said to be close to tropical paradise. So, Nick Ross took advantage of the cheap airfares to find out if this haven for surfers and holidaymakers is more than just another Costa del Sol. Photos by Nick Ross.

Latin jazz plays in the background as I look over Legian Beach in Seminyak. Surfers ride waves and beachgoers sun themselves on a not-so-sunny, almost white sand beach. I am in Kudeta (think coup d’etat), one of Bali’s most iconic bars. Last night Jose Padilla of Cafe Del Mar fame played his hallmark concoction of beachside lounge music that has helped him sell five million albums.

After a week it became clear that room costs were just the start of the holiday expenses: for every dollar spent on accommodation, another was spent on food and drinks.

Private Homes & Villas was born out of frustration and two very grim holidays. I personally have found it extremely difficult to find decent and impartial information on villas to rent. As a result it has gone into ‘the too difficult tray’ and I have stayed in a hotel instead. Now in the absence of anything else we decided to do something about it.
