Living in Bali

Welcome to BALI!

Looking for places to shop, eat, get a massage? Here are some places our teachers have recommended.

Sign up for the Bali Update sponsored by Discover Tours. You will get a weekly email updating you on Indonesian News (In English) as well as events in and around Bali.


Sanur Beach has a reef and so has no waves. It is nice when there is high tide. People tend to do water skiing and kite surfing here. You can walk for ages along the path past many hotels and little market stalls. It is really interesting going down there on a Sunday afternoon when all the local families go. There are many cafes and hotels where you can stop and have a meal or drink along the way.

Geger Beach in Nusa Dua is one that any taxi driver will know. It has white sand, you can park right on the beach and rent day beds and umbrellas at a far cheaper rate than Seminyak and it is very child friendly for swimming.

Bingin Beach is on the Uluwatu Peninsula. It is a good surfer spot and also good for swimming. There is a really laid back vibe. Although not easy to find, it is worth a visit. You will have to walk down (and up) quite a few steps! It is a great spot for sunset beers.

Uluwatu Peninsula – they do the Kekak ‘fire dance’ there at sunset/ around 5:30pm – worth a day trip there or go after a trip to Dreamland beach or Bingin beach. Watch out for the monkeys who will steal things out of your bag and take mosquito repellent.

Padang Padang – white sand, gorgeous views and a temple right on the sea edge. One of the main 9 holy sites in Bali Hindu religion. A great surf and swimming area.

Echo Beach (near Canggu) has a fantastic seafood BBQ each Sunday night. This is THE ONE to go to and not to be missed for a sunset drink right on the water and a seafood platter and beers for USD 10. The sand here is dark grey but the water is great for surfing and great for a swim.

Double Six – Many of our families head here August through November to surf and grab a bite to eat.

Be a Tourist

Here are some things to do on the weekend, during the holidays or when friends come to visit. This list is by no means exhaustive, but it will get you started.

Bali Bubba – Do you have friends or family coming over to Bali with children? If so, they will probably be interested in knowing that they can rent everything they need for their baby/toddler from us during their stay.

Waterbom – This water park makes for great day out for kids and grown ups too. Water rides, pools, food to eat makes this a good alternative to the beach.

Bali Safari and Marine Park – This is a very well maintained zoo and park which also houses a small water park and the Bali Agung Theater.

Other Places of Interest:

Bird Park Bali
Monkey Forest
Tanah Lot
Tirta Gangga Water Palace

White Water Rafting & Bike Tours

Mount Agung and Besakih (Mother Temple) – a long day trip or do this as a side trip if you stay in Ubud. Mt Agung is the largest active volcano on the island and Besakih is the largest and holiest temple.

Mount Batur and Lake Batur – again a long day trip or a side trip from Ubud. You can drive down into the volcano and check out the Villagers fishing in the lake. There are some great photo opportunities here.


There are two types of shopping in Bali, market shopping and store/mall shopping. When market shopping, you can barter over the price, which can be fun. They will give you a price in rupiah and then you negotiate. Usually start at 30 or 40% of the prices they say and then come to a price you are willing to pay. Never pay the full price. Usually you end up paying 50-70%. You will know you have gone to low if you walk away and they don’t chase after you. It is recommended you don’t start bartering if you are not serious about buying. There are market stalls everywhere in Bali, selling the same things, so you can check, negotiate and see what the going rate is for things before you buy. In the regular shops and malls, everything will have a set price so you cannot barter.

Malls-Most expats frequent the Beachwalk, Lippo Mall  and Mall Bali Galeria .

If you are into shopping, check out Jalan Legian. This is one very long street with endless shops. You could spend days going along. The Kuta end is more touristy with mainly Surf shops and market stalls and heading north towards Seminyak is more Boutique and original.

You can’t go wrong with heading to Jalan Laksmana or it used to be called Jalan Oberoi so some taxi drivers will call it that. It’s heading towards the beach in Seminyak, and if you keep going you’d drive past the Oberoi and land at Ku De Ta. There are loads of great shops there to check out. Stand out ones are Magali Pascal and Lulu for great summer dresses. They’re upmarket ones but really nice designs as well as a smattering of leather bags, jewellery and other accessories.

Grocery Shopping

Hardy’s – This is the main supermarket in Sanur. You can get most things here, but they can be expensive.

The Pantry – This shop is great for cheeses, cold meats and other treats. It is all imported and you will be able to get many Christmas treats as well as wine in here. Go here for food and wine before Hardy’s as it is cheaper. It is attached to Café Batujimbar which is great as well and is across the road from Hardys.

Raja Meat – This is an Australian butcher located in Sanur. Everything is frozen as it has come from Australia. Good meat and you can order a ham or turkey for Christmas if you want

Lotte Mart – On the By-pass, this is a warehouse style store where you can buy in bulk. They only take cash (or charge 5% to use credit/debit card). The beef and ribs are always good.

Papaya – Specialty shop, operated by Japanese, with a fresh baked goods section.

Carrefour – The biggest grocery store on island.  You can get just about anything here from tvs and juicers to fresh baked bread and wine

Dijon – Another specialty shop like the pantry located by the big round about just as you turn onto Sunset. Small cafe next to the store. Nice for a light lunch.

Bali Deli – Another specialty shop like the Pantry located on Jalan Danau Tamblingan near the Hyatt. Another Bali Deli is located in Jalan Kunti in Seminyak if you can handle the traffic!

Gourmet Garage/ Caswell’s – Specialty foods with a cafe attached.

Spoil Yourself- Spa

Spas in Bali vary from extremely to cheap to extremely expensive.  The old saying “You get what you pay for” applies in most cases.  Once in a while you will find a little spa that does a great job for next to nothing, but you have to be prepared to look around. Below are a few of the tried and true used by families and faculty at BIS.

Glo – Located in Sanur on Jl Danau Poso, you can get massages, spray tans, facials, manicures, pedicures, and a really good cut and colour with an Australian stylist.

Aroma – Located on the by- pass in Sanur, this spa is very new. Check with our PTFA. We have a BIS number. If you have a treatment done here, they will donate a percentage back to the PTFA.  Relax and support our school at the same time.

Panache – Also in Sanur. This less expensive shop does cuts, colours, manicures, pedicures and a host of other treats.

Esthetic – Located in Seminyak- Hair, waxing, massage, manicures & pedicures, facials- down the street from Grocer and Grind- 0361737361

Bodyworks – Located in Seminyak and offers the works.

Cozy – Two locations: one on Sunset Road just after the Dewi Ruci roundabout and the other is on Jalan Dewi Sri. Many believe they offer the best massages and reflexology in Bali. Be sure to try the hot ginger tea.

Jari Menari – Off Jl Legian
