Spending 1 month in Bali/Lombak.. need advice!

by travelz0r

Hi All,

I am 26 years old and will be traveling to Bali for one month in June/July. I would like to hear some ideas on parts of the islands to visit/stay. My plan at the moment is to fly in and check into a temporary hotel until I find a place that suits me. I will want to see much of the islands (Ubud, Lombak(Kuta), Mawi Beach +more) and so I am open to changing hotels a couple of times.

Really I am looking for advice in the following areas:
1) Air travel from the States is going to run me about $2,000 if anyone has suggestions how to lower this cost (is it reasonable?)

2) Ideally I would like to stay in a remote place with not too many amenities, except for a shower and mosquito netting - any suggestions on what locations these can be found? close to a beach would be nice

3) Will I be okay not booking things in advance considering June/July dates?

I know it is cliche since I am a tourist but I do not want to be around tourists. I want to be in a peaceful place but where I can taxi/bike to food/fishing/civilization.

Thanks in advance you are all a great resource from what I can see in the posts read. I am open to suggestions and look forward to hearing from you all!!

Hi,
If you are considering Kuta south Lombok may I suggest you try www.mimpimanis.com in a small village about 1.5 kms from Kuta. Owned by an English woman Gemma married to Made a Balinese from Lombok.
Set in the village allows you to see daily life and get a feel of place. Being June and July you will need to book ahead to ensure you have a room as they are only small and get booked out.
Here are a couple of reviews from travellers who have stayed there.

I personally stayed there in Nov 2006 ( and finally got to meet Gemma in person - we had been on various travel forums over the years) and thoroughly enjoyed my time there, celebrated my birthday and Gemma and Made went out of their way to make it a special day for me with a special freshly caught fish dinner that night.

Try the gili Islands just off the coast of Lombok. Its somewhat remote, is a realdex place with no cars, trucks or motos. It has quiet beaches and a laid back reggae kind of night life. I'm thinking thats your kinda place.

Thanks for the responses. I have read about Gemma as well, perhaps it is time I sent her an email to check her availability. I am sure she will have good ideas on places to visit as well.

Another question is it possible to buy cell phones there with some minutes on them to use in emergency?

Also I heard the Gili Islands - Trawangan, Meno and Air - had many tourists, is this accurate?

June is the start of our peak season, and July is full on peak season. With that in mind hotel availability is not as readily available without advance bookings as it would be during non peak time travel here.

Spending a month in Bali and Lombok during this peak season period sort of puts you between a “rock and a hard place.” You see, the old adage, “the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray” (or something like that) applies to Bali more than anywhere else in the world I can think of. Pre booking and pre-planning your trip has the advantage that you a “place certain” every night once you are here, but on the other hand, that certainty is at the price of flexibility and an ability to follow your gut or heart once you are here.

Also, your desire (quite understandable IMHO) to not be around other tourists is getting close to mission impossible during the times you have chosen to be in Bali.

April or May would be far better for you if you have such flexibility.

On the other hand, with all that said, if you just want to hunker down and re-charge your batteries for a month without a desire to take in the local culture, then the advice you’ve already been given about Kuta, Lombok is perfect. Kuta, Lombok is drop dead gorgeous with pristine white sandy beaches and a very laid back…”who cares what time it is” atmosphere.

Travel Tips for Kuta

Local sentiment regarding terrorism

by phil_uk_net

Not a fond memory but a very sad one. The terrorist attack on Bali in October 2002, besides directly affecting those killed and injured and their families, has devastated a lot of local businesses and severely impacted the local economy.
Hotel occupancy rates were running at 25-30% in January 2003 when they should have been full. Taxi drivers, restaurant workers and a host of other local people who survive by providing goods and services to tourists were struggling badly.
This T-shirt seems to sum up local sentiment quite succintly.

Traditional handicrafts and art

by victorwkf

There are many shops at the Kuta area selling traditional paintings and handicraft items, mainly made from wood and rattan cane. These items are very beautiful and worth a buy for your house or as gifts to friends. Remember to shop around for the cheap deals and always bargain to get a good price.

delicious luscious

by aalayaa about luscious

it's a chocolaterie in a pink building near sunset road.
you can find all kind of chocolate, and on the back room there's a restaurant.
the place is upstairs, so you can get better view. there's also tables by the balcony.
during the day, it's not recommend to have lunch outside because it's gonna be too hot, but at nite, it's really ok chocolate, no one can get away from its temptation

Seminyak

"Seminyak"

Seminyak is situated ± 4 km north of Kuta Beach. Althoug it's a bit crowded, it still is more quiet as Kuta. The main street, Jalan Legian is a pretty street for shopping; it also counts a lot of charasteristic Bali style buildings.
