Bali Itinerary & inexpensive hotel in Seminyak

Jump to last reply

I have finalized most of our Bali itinerary and many thanks to this board.

We have our first night where we arrive at 1:30 am still unbooked. From there we have 3 nights at the Alila Soori and then 3 at the Hanging Gardens. To get the rate i wanted at the Alila it was a 3 night stay, so the night we arrive very late, we will stay closer to the airport. After looking at a map, Seminyak seems "on the way" to the Alila, but maps are often deceiving. If so, I think we will spend that first night in Seminyak, wake up early the next morning and check out the general area briefly (so I can have a better idea next time we return to bali :) ) If I am wrong, I know Jimbaran is close to DPS, so we will stay there or in Kuta - its just a night- before heading to Soori.

As for going to Alila Soori, the hotel has quoted $60 USD for a one way airport transfer - is this an ok price? it is 90 mins - 2 hours from DPS. Also any time of day to avoid the drive due to especially bad traffic?

I know this board recommends the driver at 'my bali friend'. Before contacting him I want to have a better idea of our day trips. One day trip we want to do is possibly hiking one of the 2 volcanoes, the smaller one. We're in our ealry 30s and in decent shape, I like hiking but not for 8 hours - so Batur seems more appropriate. Any thoughts? Which hotel, either the Alila Soori or hotel in Ubud is more convenient to get to Batur? Again, I'm asking experts here because maps are often deceiving. Also if you don't recommend Batur or have another similiar hike...any tips are greatly well as things to do near the Alila, I know there isn't much there...which is part of the reason we are going I suppose.
