Bali International Airport has multiple international and domestic direct flights, including Dubai, Sydney, Singapore and Jakarta. With a lack of efficient public transport options, it is best to pre-arrange a driver to pick you up from the airport as taxis tend to charge a premium rate. From the airport to Kuta (surfing hotspot) takes around 30 mins and cost IDR 75k, to Ubud (home of the famous rice terraces) 2 hours and IDR 400k, and to Lovina (Northern hotspot) 3 hours and IDR 450k.
Bali is teeming with luxury hotels and villas across the Island, with each area retaining a unique atmosphere to suit all travellers. In Ubud, find yourself an eco-resort or boutique hotel overlooking the beautiful rice terraces or rainforest and enjoy the laid back vibe.
