      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.

      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

    • From Malang airport to Sendang Biru - how?

      by Barkay Online Now Apr 7, 2011 at 12:10 AM

      I with my wife arrive to Malang by air from Jakarta at the end of May 2011.
      We plan to go to the village Sendang Biru and Pulau Sempu and stay there for 3-5 days.
      Can we get to this village from airport? How much does it cost?
      Or we weed to go to Malang first and take a transport to the village there?
      Can you recommend us a hotel or a guesthouse in Sendang Biru? Do we need to book a room in advance? I couldn't find it in the web.
      Is it possible to come in contact with an english-speaking local as a guide there?
      Thank you very much.

    • Kusuma agro or Surya Indah

      by ikira Online Now Apr 2, 2010 at 9:19 AM

      Hi Vts

      I will be arriving in Batu Malang from Jogja during 20th May.
      Is now the season for apple, orange ?
      Our agent recommend us to stay at Kusuma agro and we saw a blog recommending Surya Indah. Both also in Batu. Which one is more worth the money?

      As we only have one night in Batu. The next day after lunch we will depart to Bromo. Is Kusuma Agro too "much" for us? Shall we go for cheaper accomodation? Any good recommendation?

      id we stay in Budget hostel, we can we go to visit Apple plantation? Can we enter kusuma agro just by bying their 20 000 rph ticket?

      Please advice.. many thanks.

    • malang or probolinggo

      by musaphir Online Now May 14, 2008 at 12:15 PM

      we have three days to spend around the surabaya region. various VT posts indicate that surabaya is a huge port city and may not merit a three day stay. we have threfore considered malang/batu or probolinggo as extensions. could travelling with a baby prove challenging travelling to probo.

      how much could taxi fare cost to probolinggo?

      we have received some extremely useful suggestions from some members (harish e.g) but would like to cover mt bromo if possible.

      all ideas welcome.
