Δ Getting to Bali

The international airport for Bali is Ngurah Rai International Airport.  All students need to fly to Denpasar (DPS).  The easiest option is to let your hotel/resort know when you are coming and they can arrange a pick up from the airport for you.  Next option is: Taxis are available at the airport in the arrivals section. Please make sure you negotiate the rate prior to getting into the taxi, which will be around 30 AUD.  Another suggestion is to share a taxi with others who may be heading to Ubud.  Also, ensure there is not too much luggage as they will charge you extra for that.  Depending on traffic it can take from 90 mins to 2 hours to get to Ubud.

Δ Visas

Please ensure your passport has a validity of a minimum of 6 months.  For visa information kindly check: https://www.bali.com/visa-indonesia-entry-requirements-bali.html Immigration rules for Indonesia change all the time. However, most passports will be granted a 30 day tourist visa on entry. Kindly check your local Indonesian embassy for any updates prior to your travel.

Δ Insurance

As much as we put our trust in Shiva, you may consider getting medical insurance for the trip. For a smooth no stress retreat, medical travel insurance is highly recommended. A hospital suitable for expats will be in Nusa Dua which is approximately 2 hrs away from Ubud.  The cost for emergency care or hospitalizations is greater for a visitor to Bali.

“There’s nothing we need to do. All our power comes from the attitudes through which we see the world and our experiences. As does all our pain and frustration. At Spanda we focus on what’s happening ‘inside’ using the body, energies and mind, eventually revealing what we really Are.” – Ava
