Australians know where to escape on their holidays. Our number one vacation destination is Bali. Beautiful island, beautiful people and beautiful accommodation. As you drag yourself through this hump day Wednesday I give to you the fabulous eye candy that is Villa Massilia, a tropical compound of 3 villas in the beach resort of Seminyak. Daydreaming in front of your work computer can begin now … unless you are lucky enough to make the journey to this slice of heaven in real life. I’m checking availability right now.
