Travel Tips

  • MONEY CHANGERS

    We recommend that you DO NOT change money at small counters displaying “NO COMMISSION”  signs. We recommend that you use the following money changers

    • PT. CENTRAL KUTA
    • PT. BALI MASPINTJINRA
    • PT. MADE PUTROE BAKRI

    Please ask our reception staff for location details

  • TRANSPORTATION

    When using taxis we recommend that you use the BLUE BIRD TAXI group. Phone bookings can be made with reception. We also advise that, when booking by phone, a minimum fee of IDR 30,000 will be charged.

    Our reception staff can arrange for you to hire a CAR or MOTOR BIKE during your stay. Rates are available on request – we do, however, advise that you are in possession of an INTERNATIONAL DRIVERS LICENCE before driving in Indonesia

    If travelling on your own, by taxi from the airport, we strongly advise that you book your taxi at the TAXI COUNTER at the airport. These taxis have set rates, to all parts of the island, and this will assist you in not being taken advantage of by unscrupulous taxi drivers waiting outside the arrivals terminal

  • MEDICAL CARE

    The hotel has a DOCTOR ON CALL service but, should you require hospital care, then we recommend the BALI INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL CENTRE located on Jl. By-Pass Ngurah Rai in Kuta

    Applying abroad for a Visa

    Visa regulations, Bali, Indonesia

    If you have a passport from a country that is not listed above then you have to apply for a visa abroad - in one of the Indonesian embassies or consulates. Visas are issued to those persons who are visiting Indonesia on government work, on business, for social-cultural activities and for holidays (purpose of visit).

    If you wish to stay longer than 30 days then you could apply for 60 days Visa - depending on your purpose of visit (e.g. sponsor letter needed). Note: A standard 30 days Visa on Arrival can be extended in Indonesia in one of the immigration offices (or with the help of an agent). A 30 days free entry stamp CANNOT be extended.

    For further information please contact the Indonesian Embassy in your home country. Make sure you start to apply a few weeks before your departure and get all necessary documents ready. Visas available: Single Entry Visa, Business Visa, Socio-cultural Visa (Social Visa), Tourist Visa, Government (Diplomatic/Service Visa), Multiple Entry Visa, Temporary Stay Visa.

    Calculating the Days - Overstaying in Indonesia

    Good to know:
    - The VoA and free stamp is NOT VALID FOR ONE MONTH. It's 30 days
    - The day of arrival counts as day one
    - The day of departure also counts

    Even if you leave or arrive 5 minutes after midnight, that "new" day will be counted as a full day.

    Overstaying

    If you overstay you will have to pay a penalty of 300.000Rp per day. Up to 3 days is usually no problem, you will simply pay the fee at the immigration counter without getting hassled (stay polite at all times and say you miscalculated or run into troubles catching a bus from Java, etc).
