6 Tips for Planning a Girls Trip to Bali
Search for cheap flights
Spending as little as possible on your flights will free your budget up for all the other fun activities Bali has to offer. You can get flights to Bali at great prices from the major hubs in Australia, under $300 return if you book at the right time.
When looking for cheap flights to Bali the best thing to do is to look at Google Flights. You can look at the calendar and identify the cheapest dates to fly. You can also set up a fare alert and receive email when the price drops or starts to rise on the fares you’re looking at.
Sign up to airline mailing lists and like their Facebook pages to keep an eye out for any special promotions that pop up. I Know the Pilot is another great site for monitoring airline sale fares.
Avoid the school holidays
Bali is a super popular spot for Aussie and Kiwi families to head in the school holidays. If you’re a mum taking a break from your kids for a few days or a group of girls headed off for a week’s holiday, you’ll want to avoid the Australian and New Zealand school holiday dates. Not only will flights be more expensive over the school holidays but accommodation prices will also rise.
Pick the right area in Bali
Picking the right area of Bali to stay in is key to enjoying your trip. You’ll want to choose a spot that suits the type of holiday you’re after. If you want an action-packed week of nights out, then Kuta is the place for you. If you want to chill out, do yoga and eat raw then you’ll love Ubud. If you want laidback nightlife, a nice beach and great restaurants then head to Sanur. Surfy girls who like a relaxed vibe and cafe culture will love Cangu’s black sand beach. Fashionistas who want to lunch, shop and spa will feel right at home in Seminyak. Bali has something for everyone!
Rent a villa
Renting a villa is the ideal way to enjoy a getaway with friends or family in Bali. You get to relax together in luxury, chat all night over a bottle or wine swim in your own tropical pool.
Renting a villa can be a much more affordable way to vacation in Bali with a group of friends. Splitting the cost of a villa between you works out much cheaper than everyone staying in a separate hotel and you get so much more space for your money.
Contact Bali Villas and they will be able to find you the perfect villa for your group. They have villas across Bali.
Prepare to pamper yourself in Bali! Bali is the ideal destination for women who love to look after themselves. You can do anything from a cheap massage on the beach for a few bucks to full on luxury day spas.
And it’s not just massage either. You can do all sorts of weird and wonderful treatments at Balinese spas. Ayuverdic massage, milk baths, clay facials. All for a fraction of what it would cost you in Australia!
Pack light and shop in Bali
Bali has great shopping! All those gorgeous, flowy dresses you see on Instagram can be bought in Bali. It’s worth packing light on the flight over to allow yourself plenty of room in your suitcase for all the gorgeous stuff you pick up in Bali.
If you like crafts and jewellery then you’ll easily be able to pick up lots of locally made trinkets as you shop. Bali also has lots of great clothing boutiques with local designers offering unique outfits. Seminyak is a great place to shop so even if you’re not staying here, head down for the day to wander the boutiques.
Homewares are also a great buy in Bali. If you like the boho vibe, then leave some room for handcrafted homewares in your suitcase. Or better yet, book an extra bag on the flight back home!
