A TikToker was shocked to discover that she accidentally reserved an entire hotel for her family vacation in Bali, Indonesia.
Jas posted a TikTok last week explaining how she snagged a hotel for her family of seven thinking she had reserved a private villa.
The video quickly went viral, amassing over 3 million views, as people tried to wrap their heads around what happened.
The social media manager shared that she booked the lodging her grandparents had selected through Airbnb a year prior, spending about $3,000 for a week.
She admitted that she anticipated issues, knowing that Indonesia has been increasing prices trying to deter tourists, but was excited to take her family on a beautiful vacation.
Jas reported that a week before her family was set to check in, the owner messaged her on Airbnb and informed her that the property is under new management and had undergone several changes, including pricing, from her booking a year ago.
She said that the owner was blown away by the low price that she paid through the vacation rental site and continued to question how she scored such a great deal.
“I was like, ‘How do you mean, how did I get this price?’ ” Jas recounted. “I just booked it. I don’t know what you want me to say.”
She said that the owner continued to message her frantically as he explained that the property was actually a whole hotel, but finally came to terms with the fact that he would have to “take an L.”
When Jas and her family finally made it to their destination, Jas noticed that the place had a few markers of a hotel, including an ATM in the kitchen, 12 bedrooms, a full-time bartender, a kitchen, a chef and a restaurant.
She described the place as “nice for an Airbnb,” but “quite disappointing” for a hotel.
The host then reportedly told Jas that because she got a “special rate” on their stay that other people would be coming to stay with them on the property.
“I was like, ‘Um no. I don’t know what this special rate is or what discounts they gave me, but I just booked it. I didn’t do anything,’ ” she attempted to reiterate.
Jas told the owner that while she appreciated the great deal she got, there was “absolutely no way in hell” that she would accept having others on the property with her family, as she was led to believe that she had booked the entire place.
“It’s a huge f–king villa, but a small hotel,” she explained.
In the end, Jas was able to keep the entire property private for her family and enjoy a lovely vacation.
The Post reached out to Jas for comment.
She shared pictures on Instagram, noting that the trip had always been a dream of hers.
“My grandparents are so amazed by everything and even on the rainy days sat in the villa my grandma says she feels like she’s in heaven,” she wrote.
While Jas and her family thoroughly enjoyed their time in Bali, many locals are fed up with the influx of tourists who they claim dishonor their culture and disregard their laws.
Anti-foreigner sentiments have been growing, as tourists have been caught having sex in public, breaking traffic laws, working illegally as tattoo artists, smuggling drugs and disrespecting sacred grounds, leaving native Indonesians feeling resentful.
