Most flights to Aus­tralia from Den­pasar, Bali, leave around mid­night and, with stan­dard ho­tel check­out time of 11am or noon, that means an af­ter­noon and evening to fill be­fore take-off. How clever, then, of Spa Venus at Villa Kubu to come up with Pre-Flight Pack­ages that in­clude com­bos of pam­per­ing treat­ments and use of a pri­vate pool villa with op­tional room ser­vice and the prospect of screen­ings in an air-con­di­tioned movie room. De­spite the sin­gu­lar name, Villa Kubu is ac­tu­ally a tucked-away com­pound of one, two and three-bed­room cat­e­gories of ac­com­mo­da­tion, plus in­ter­con­nect­ing vil­las for up to eight guests, within walk­ing dis­tance of Seminyak Beach. There’s a pack­age launch of­fer through Novem­ber of $123 plus 21 per cent tax and ser­vice for four hours for four guests, in­clud­ing a trans­fer to Den­pasar air­port. For longer-stay guests, there are also spe­cials of 33 per cent off tar­iffs un­til Jan­uary 8, with ex­tras that in­clude spa treat­ments, kids-dine-free deals and late check-outs. The Pre­Flight Pack­ages must be booked at least 24 hours in ad­vance and are sub­ject to avail­abil­ity. More: vil­lakubu.com; elite­havens.com.
