10. Surprise Room in Ubud Villas (Rooms start at USD 46)
Ubud Villas are chic and classy, but notorious for being expensive as well.But do you know – you can actually stay in one of these fabulous villas on a budget?The folks who manage a group of these villas offer a special rate to stay in one of the spare rooms in their villas at a fraction of the published rate!So where’s the catch? Thing is, there isn’t really one. You just have to be OK with having to potentially move to another room during your stay (since this offer is for a spare room).But for short term stayers, chances are actually very low, so you’ve gotten yourself a really good deal.
