Practical Information

Climate
Bali has a tropical rainforest climate with a fairly stable temperature throughout the year (22-33°C). It is cooler in the mountains. The south coast is on average 5°C warmer than the north coast, but the north coast is generally dryer. Around Villa Mangga doesn’t usually get the rain that poors in the mountains. The driest period is from April to November.

Religion: Over 90% of the Balinese are Hindu. You’ll see small sacrifices (thathed cane basket with flowers and rice) anywhere. Many ceremonies are taking place regularly and you shouldn’t miss the beautiful Hindu temples. Be prepared to wear a sarong when entering a temple. Our staff performs the same traditions at our own 2 little temples.


Money: 10.000 IDR (Rupiah) = about 0.70 euros. ATMs are in Lovina and Seririt. Credit cards are not widely accepted.

 

Visa: Most European citizens can buy a Visa on Arrival for 35 USD or 25 euro. Please check at your embassy if other rules apply.

 

Food and drinks: The meals prepared by our cook are made from freshly bought ingredients from the market in Seririt and prepared according to high hygienic standards. In Lovina there are many restaurants, some small supermarkets and a western bakery. In Seririt and Singaraja there’s a large Hardy's supermarket. In our own village Kalianget there is very limited stock, but we promote to buy at least some beers there.
