      Accommodations near Kupu Kupu Barong Villas or closer to town

      Ubud Dec 31, 2014 at 7:27 AM

      I'd read some really conflicting reviews of the above place, and while the setting looks fantastic, the food looked awfully lacklustre and expensive. Given that it's a bit off the beaten path, are there any other places of the same range and style nearby that you could recommend? Or....even closer to town, but preferably with elevation.
      We arrive Friday evening.
      Thanks.

      Transport for 3 day trip (Ubud, Nusa Dua, Kuta)

      Bali Jan 6, 2015 at 9:29 PM

      Hi all, It seems hiring a private car / tour guide+driver is the best way to go around Bali. I am arriving to the airport early 8am in March 7 and departing about the same time in March 10, so that leaves me with three full days of sampling the island. I have already booked accommodations in Ubud, Nusa Dua and Kuta. My question is with transportation and if it is feasible to get a driver (or at least the same booking serivce) for the duration of the trip, and a rough estimate of the costs? Would be great to get contact details of drivers you've tried so I can start inquiring too.

      My route and estimated travel time is as follows:

      Day 1: Airport (8am pick-up)) >> Tirta Gangga >> Ubud hotel (3pm drop-off)  -- halfday trip

      Day 2: Ubud hotel (10 am pick-up) >> Taman Ayun >> Tanah Lot >> Nusa Dua hotel (4pm drop-off)  - halfday trip

      Day 3: Nusa Dua hotel (1pm pick-up) >> Kuta hotel  (should I take taxi instead, and how much?)

      Departure: Kuta hotel (6:30am pick-up) >> Airport   (should I take taxi instead, and how much?)

      Thanks! Ellie

      I am planning to fly to Jogja in the first week of June to visit Borobudur and Prambanan. I hope to be able to stay at the Princess Manohara Hotel (if room is available) and wonder if this is a good time of the year to visit both UNESCO World Heritage sites, re: weather wise and people wise (how busy it gets at this time of year)? Appreciate any relevant advice.

      by MaBaWiTa Online Now Jun 8, 2011 at 11:30 AM

      We are in the process of preparing our July/August visit to Java.

      One of our questions is: is the next programme/route feasable to be carried out in one day?
      After breakfast in Borobudur (no sunrise event, Borobudur temple complex being done in the day before) via Kepit and Wonosobo to Dieng plateau, visit Dieng plateau, then via Lake Telaga (short visit) - Kertek - Parakan - Temanggung - Kaloran - Bandungan/Salatiga; sleep in Salatiga or Bandungan or Ambarawa.

      The trip would be carried out with a car + driver.

      Many thanks in advance for a motivated reply!

      by dragoninn Online Now May 18, 2010 at 12:11 AM

      Hi, I have just booked my flight to yogyakarta next week and is frantically looking for a hotel near Borobudur as most of them are already fully booked due to Vesak Day.
      An exception is Lotus Guesthouse, which i called up and the person in-charge said that they should have a room available for me on vesak day, but I just need to call back to confirm it a day before...
      My questions are:
      Is this the 'right' way of making a hotel reservation? with no formal reservations etc what if they don't have a room when i arrive?
      And can anyone enlighten me on the distance it is from Borobudur? Is it at walking distance?

      Thanks so much and hope to get some feedback from you kind souls pretty soon... :_)

    • First time visit to Borobudur - Many questions

      by amytoh28 Online Now Apr 9, 2007 at 10:26 PM

      Dear VTers,

      Am planning a 5D4N trip to Borobudur sometime August or September 2007. Will be flying in to Solo via Air Asia and have the following questions which I will much appreciate it if I could get feedback on:

      1. How long is the journey from Solo to Yogyakarta by taxi and how much does it cost?
      2. Do I need to pre-book a taxi or can I just get one on arrival?
      3. Is August and September 2007 ok to travel in terms of weather?
      4. Is 5D4N enough for the trip, taking into account that I'll fly in/out f rom Solo and would also like to visit Prambanan and Mt Bromo. The flights in/out of Solo are before noon.
      5. Any good hotel recommendations that is clean, cheap (budget is USD20/room/night)?
      6. Any trusted guide recommendation?
      7. How much should I pay for rental of a car (for 2 pax) or a van (for 4 pax) daily with fuel/driver cum guide/insurance?
      8. What else should I see/do in Yogyakarta and/or Solo?

      That's about all the questions I could think of now and thanking everyone in advance for their invaluable feedback.

      P.S. Noted that the forum for Borobudur is a bit 'quiet'.
