Travel & Accommodations

Flying to Bali

Which airport should we fly into? Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport (airport code DPS).

Do I need a visa? Indonesia does not require visas for US or South Korean citizens staying for tourism for less than 30 days. However, please make sure your passport will be valid at least 6 months from the date of arrival in Indonesia and has at least two blank pages. You will also need to provide information regarding your departure flight out of Indonesia, so make sure you have the flights booked!

Where to Stay

There are many lovely places to stay in Bali, many within a short distance from the wedding venue. We recommend the the following hotels (note: public rates for most of these hotels are cheaper than their group rates, so check their websites or third party booking website):
We recommend our guests to stay in hotels or Airbnbs in the Nusa Dua or Uluwatu. Please Google Map distances and peak travel times prior to booking. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

How to Get Around

We have provided a general list of popular travel options, but please make sure to check with your hotel concierge or host as well. (Also see: https://www.traveloffpath.com/taxi-uber-or-grab-in-bali-2018/):
Taxis: Taxis are a convenient and relatively cheap way of getting around in South Bali. Blue Bird Taxis are reputable. We would recommend avoiding other taxi companies. If you do choose to use other taxis, only get into those that have metered fares and be prepared to have cash on hand (credit cards are not always accepted, much to our dismay).
Grab: Uber is not available in Bali. Fortunately, Grab (aka the “Uber of Southeast Asia”) is very prevalent, and fares are often very cheap. Be aware that pick up times can be long, your driver may speak very little English, and payment must be in cash. Also note that it will be very tough getting picked up by a Grab driver from the Denpasar airport and certain hotels due to the local “taxi mafia.”
Private driver: Private drivers are a great and affordable option if you are planning to explore several parts of the island on the same day. From our experience, rates can be $50-60 for a full day. Private drivers recommended by a hotel often come at a premium, so make sure to do your own research! We will aim to provide recommendations - please be sure to check back or ask us directly.
