Hi. On my way back from hols near Sorong I will have about 7 hors before my flight. Even counting check in time for the second flight etc., it leaves me with 5 hours. Any idea of where to park myself? Is there any lounge, spa, even day hotel within the airport?
I am travelling to Bali for 14 nights in June and I am seeking advice on where to visit and for how long.
This is a loose plan so far however I am open to suggestions!
4 nights Seminyak
3 Nights Ubud
3 Nights Gili T
4 Nights either Lombok with a day trip to Uluwatu during our stay in Seminyak or 3 nights in Uluwatu and an extra night in Gili T with day trip to Lombok.
In terms of what we are looking for on our trip, we are looking for a variety of things. We are a young couple and like going out and partying however we also want to do lots of cultural things as well and see some temples. We prefer to stay in five star hotels/villas and we have already chosen ones we like in Seminyak, Ubud and gili T.
Ideally we would like at least one destination on our trip to include nice white sand beaches however we are not big water sports people so that is not mandatory. We have decided against Nusa Dua though as we want to experience more of what Bali has to offer rather than stay in a 5 star resort the whole time.
I would also like to swim with turtles which I have heard you can do in Gili T and see some waterfalls which seem to be abundant on Lombok however I was wondering if this could be a day trip?
I want to visit all of the above at some point during the trip however I am undecided on whether to do a day trip to Lombok when in Gili T and stay in Uluwatu for 3 nights or to visit Uluwatu for a day trip while in Seminyak and then stick with Lombok for 4 nights. My main concerns are how few and expensive the nice resorts are in uluwatu are (I am finding it difficult to find the right accommodation in terms of price, availability and service level) while I have found this to be easier on the north side of Lombok I am concerned about the travelling time staying in Lombok will add on to the trip and that the nice beaches seem to be much further south far from the hotels in the north?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I have a thought on travel route in Bali (7nghts) and would like the experienced members to comment on the pro & cons
....Go direct from airport to Sanur and stay for two nights (leaving one case in local storage)
Then travel to Ubud for two nights
Then travel up onwards over hills to Lavina or Pemuteran (recommended by lonely planet) for two nights
Then take west coast road back and stay in Seminyak for one night before collecting case & departure
I am estimating travel time in car with driver, subject to traffic....are these correct?
30mins from Sunur
2.5 hrs from Ubud to Lavina
3 hours from Pemuteran to Seminyak
25mins Seminyak to Airport
I look forward to your comments
Is lonely planet ebook on Bali worth buying and upto date?
I head off in a few weeks and wanted to ask members if any had bought it and thought this ebook was a worth while addition for their trip?
Will not go diving so don't need it on that front.
While writing can members advise if Sanur is worth a two or three day visit .....current thought is to perhaps head straight there from flight arrival as it should only take 25mins with roads being quiet late at night.
All thoughts welcome and appreciated
