GENERAL INFORMATION

Climate in Bali

From April to October, it is comfortably warm, temperatures range from 29'C - 34'C. From November to March occasional tropical rainfalls occur, which last but few hours a time. The average daily temperature is within a constant range of 25'C-31'C.

Money Exchange

Our Indonesian currency is called the Rupiah, abbreviated as Rp. For the best exchange rate, you will find a bank or money exchange in most of the larger hotels. Please beware of "money changers" outside of the hotels, often a higher rate of exchange is offered, but sometimes you are not given the correct amount of money, always check you money before you leave. When cashing Travellers cheques your passport will be required, and the cheque must be counter signed in front of the cashier. Travellers cheques are also accepted at many shops. Credit card that are commonly accepted here in hotels, restaurants, and shops are: Visa, Mastercard, Diners Club and American Express. Personal cheques are rarely accepted anywhere.

Phoning Home

From Bali, this can be very expensive, so check the rates first! Most hotels have IDD, direct dialing. Once you have an outside line, dial 001 then the country code then drop the 0 from the STD code. Remember the time difference, Bali is 8 hours ahead of GMT and 7 hours ahead of BST-i.e. Noon in London in the summer is 7pm in Bali.

Postal Services

Cards and letters can be sent from all hotels, contact the reception or concierge for stamps.
