Holidays to Bali


Think Bali, think beaches. An exotic beach break destination, you’ll have your pick from family friendly NUSA Dua and Sanur in the south with calm waters for swimming to the lively surfing spots of Seminyak and Changgu and intriguing black sands on the northern coast of the island. But wait - there’s so much more to Indonesia’s most popular island!

Pair your lazy beach break with time in Ubud, the cultural and spiritual heart of the island where luxury resorts sit nestled within rice paddies and monkeys play among sacred temples. Or go island hopping and discover uncrowded beaches on the quieter, less-visited Lombok and explore an underwater world snorkelling in the Gili Islands. Can’t decide where to go on your Bali multi-centre holiday? Our Travel Specialists can help plan your ultimate getaway.

Bali Holidays Travel Information

There are regular flights from major UK airports into Denpasar in Bali, but no non-stop journeys.

  • Currency: Indonesian Rupiah
  • Time difference: GMT +7
  • Flight time from the UK: 19-22 hours is typical
  • Airport Information: I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar is the only commercial airport in Bali. Transfers to southern beach resorts are quick (around 1 hour) and Ubud can be reached in 2-3 hours dependent on traffic
  • Visa: Visa on Arrival (US$35 payable by cash/card)
  • Language: Bahasa Indonesian & English is widely spoken, but Balinese is the native language
  • Getting around: Transportation is easily available for local journeys - either metered or by negotiation in advance
  • Weather: Wondering when to visit Bali? The dryer months to visit are from May - October, with the main rainfall occurring December - February after which the paddy fields of Ubud and interior of Bali can be a vibrant green!
  • Multicentres: Although Ubud is only a short (1-2 hour) journey from most beach resorts in the south of Bali, we recommend a stay in the cultural heart of Bali to truly get a handle on the incredible culture of this beautiful island! You can also combine with a stay on the quieter and calmer beaches of northern Bali or the beautiful Bali Barat National Park in Menjangan, North West Bali
  • Hotel check in/check out times: Vary from hotel to hotel, but tend to allow check-in from 16:00 and check-out at 11:00. Please check with your consultant for specific times, and they can advise late check-out/early check-in rates if required. Most hotels will store luggage and allow you to use facilities if you would prefer not to do this.
  • National drink: Arak (rice wine) is widely available, but we recommend trying some of the incredible local fresh fruit juices
  • National dish: Nasi Goreng is the national dish of Indonesia, but there are many Balinese specialities like Babli Guling (Roast Suckling Pig)
