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.
