For those of you who just can’t wait to get to Bali, we have put together a list of our favourite options for your mandatory stay! Just as Bali has always done things in its own special way, quarantine here is no exception. There is a reason it’s called a “Warm Up Vacation” in Bali, and that is because the resorts want to make it as comfortable and enjoyable as possible for you!
10 Places to take your “Warm-Up Vacation” in Bali
Things are certainly changing and moving fast here on the Island. We are excited to see more airlines applying to land in Bali and for now that means a mandatory quarantine period for all arrivals (although there are whispers that it is looking to be removed by April). Currently those who are fully vaccinated AND received a booster, the quarantine period is 2 nights/ 3 days, for those fully vaccinated it is 4 nights/5 days. Those with children under 12 that are not vaccinated, the children follow you quarantine (currently Foreigners who are unvaccinated or have only had one dose are unable to access tourist visas).
