Diving around Bali - magical tropical colours



Traveling to Bali from Australia is conveniently simple and fast, just get on a plane from Adelaide, Perth or Darwin and you will be landing on Bali relatively quickly and comfortably.

Arriving from Europe will take you a few hours more - but thanks to code-sharing and airline alliances you have plenty of choices. Often the cheapest flights go through the Gulf-states and offer relatively short transfer times and mostly brand-new fleet of aircraft. Both, Emirates and Qatar Airways offer multiple flights to Denpasar.

Flights via Jakarta (Indonesia), Bangkok (Thailand), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) or Singapore may be a good alternative, as these cities are well worth a stopover and are well connected to all major European airports. Flights via Jakarta have proven to be considerably cheaper than flights to Bali. Connection flights towards Bali are easily booked with AirAsia or Lion Air. 

We are happy to arrange your pick-up from the airport, please just forward us an email and your travel itinerary in advance. 


Many major tour operators throughout Europe offer packages to the Candi Beach Resort & Spa through their catalogues. This is probably the easiest way to find the most suitable offer, including transfer from the airport to the resort.  For divers, who plan to combine their trip to Bali with a live-aboard, for example in the Komodo national park, we recommend checking with a specialised operator for diving holidays. 


In order to enter Indonesia, EU citizens are required a passport which is at least valid for six more months and contains at least one free page. Since 2015, citizens of the EU, Australia and many other countries may enter Indonesia without visa for a maximum of 30 days. Visa-free stays may not be extended, thus in case you plan to stay for a longer time, you may want to buy the extendable visa at immigration. One week before its expiry date, it may be extended for another 30 days - after that period you will have to leave Indonesia. Citizens of non-EU countries please check with the Indonesian embassy in your home country for visa requirements.

Since immigration rules change often, we kindly advise you to check well in advance of your trip to stay up to date. Your travel agent, the Indonesian consulates and embassies as well as their websites will provide the latest information.


For information about entry requirements and visa, please check the website of the Indonesian Embassy in Sydney.
Our US customers may find the page of the Indonesian Embassy in Washington helpful.
Customers from the UK best turn to the Indonesian Embassy in London.

Usually, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of your home-country will also provide valuable information about Indonesia. Having a look on their websites might be worthwhile.

For information regarding the climate in Candidasa, please have a look here.

To make entering Indonesia a bit easier, there is the option to handle the VISA and customs declaration online in advance. We strongly recommend our guests to take advantage of this option. In the foreseeable future, this will be the only way to enter. And you definitely don't want to rely on the airport Wi-Fi for this.
