FAQs

U.S. passport holders will need to show a passport valid for six months after the arrival date in Bali, a return ticket and at least two empty stamp pages in your passport.  If you do not have the validity or appropriate number of blank pages, please apply for a new passport in plenty of time for your trip.

As of June 2015, U.S. passport holders are exempt from needing to get a visa as long as the travel is strictly for tourism purposes and the stay is less than 30 days.  Visa regulations have been hit or miss for travelers and the ultimate decision for the need to obtain a visa-on-arrival is up to the immigration officer when you deplane.  It is recommended that all travelers carry enough U.S. cash to pay for a visa should the officer deem it necessary.  The current visa-on-demand cost is $35US, however we’d recommend carrying $50 in case of a price change.  Please check the State Department for up to date information.

Citizens of all other countries should check with their government for entry requirements.

Make all travel arrangements into Denpasar (DPS).  Please be aware that you will need to depart the US one to two days before the start of the yoga retreat, depending on the flight schedule you chose.

Bali utilizes the standard British plug (two flat blades and one flat grounding blade) and the European plug (two round pins) and is at 230V.  Adapters  will be necessary if you are taking any electrical items.

While we hope you’ll try and unplug… yes, there is wifi access on both of our properties.

Because of its location, Bali tends to have fairly stable weather with the ‘wet’ season occurring between October and April and the ‘dry’ season between May and September.  It is generally always hot with temperatures hovering in the mid to high 80s and up.
