When Daniel was planning his 40th birthday, he had a simple idea in mind – to bring a bunch of friends together for a fun, relaxed destination holiday.
“I’m not really big on parties for myself, but my friends are spread all over, between Sydney, the US and Europe, so I thought a group holiday would be fun. I sort of settled on Bali because it’s easy to get to and was the place my friends from home (the US) wanted to visit. I also knew that I’d have lots of options for a group catch up there.
I’d pretty much only ever stayed in hotels on holiday. But a friend kept suggesting a private villa, because we’d have the place to ourselves and she thought it would be better value. I started looking into it, and the idea of our group being together in one place, with our own private pool and bar, instead of spread out across a resort, that’s what convinced me. And she was right – it was actually way better value than a hotel.”
If, like Dan, you dream of a destination birthday celebration with your friends or family, imagine that against a backdrop of stunning beaches, cliff sides and rice paddies — That’s the reality of an Elite Havens birthday or celebration of any kind.

4. Impeccable service
In choosing the perfect villa for Daniel’s celebration, the Elite Concierge knew exactly what he wanted.
“Elite Havens had quite a few of the villas I was looking at on their site, but then I started chatting to them and they were so helpful, it was a relief to actually talk to someone who knew the areas I wanted and kind of knew exactly what I wanted. I told them what I needed and my budget, and they shortlisted a few properties that were all actually incredible. It helped cut a lot of corners and ease some of the stress having someone kind of organising things for us.
They helped me choose a second location, suggested more villas, and then coordinated transfers and everything. It was all done with one payment. It was so seamless. I didn’t appreciate it at the time because it was such a busy holiday but looking back, it was so well done. You know they’ve done this before.”
The Elite Concierge is available to take care of all your needs. If you wish to set up a birthday party or a celebration of any kind, they will make it happen for you. From babysitting to arranging transport, VIP arrival services to stocking the fridge pre-arrival, they have you covered.

“Do some basic research so you know where you want to go, and try to have an idea of your budget and number of people. Don’t be afraid to outsource the work to the experts. It doesn’t cost anything extra. In fact it saved us money because we weren’t paying hotel prices for our cocktails by the pool! I’m a bit of a control freak with things like holiday planning, but once you know you can trust the people you’re working with, it’s such a good feeling to let go!”
