REJUVENATE IN BALI

JULY 16 - 24, 2023

 

TRIP DETAILS

Bali is known for its iconic beaches, floating breakfasts, superb spa treatments, volcanic mountains, and magnificent coral reefs, and it's no surprise that so many travelers seek to explore this beautiful paradise every year.


Furthermore, Bali is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, known for its lush jungle, relaxing beaches, and mouth-water cuisine that keeps you coming for more. While staying at the Sankara Resort in Ubud, Indonesia, you will have an extraordinary off-the-beaten-path travel experience.


During your stay in Ubud, we have a slew of exciting activities and events planned for you. Poolside, we have straw hats and shades. Welcome to the world's most expensive cup of coffee and pose in front of Lemyung Heaven Gate. We'll walk through a Balinese village, meet locals, and learn about Balinese culture through storytelling and dance. And our private group yoga class on Soulcare Sunday will help you reconnect with yourself.

The Sankara Resort (or similar Class Hotel)

                                                                                     

A hidden gem in the traditional village of Kumbuh, Mas – Ubud, the resort is elegantly embroidered on a breathtaking spacious landscape surrounded by exotic plantations of the Balinese frangipani, mangosteen trees, and the arrays of coconut trees and red palm trees are to be found amongst the collection of many rare trees.

The resort is luxuriously outfitted with a 8000 sqm infinity pool protrudes from the lobby. This resort’s center piece is skirted by palm trees and an arched wooden sundeck inviting you to lay back and ease off on one of the pool chair and let the cool breeze drifts you away.

The Sankara Resort is only 90 minutes away from the Ngurah Rai International Airport and about 15 minutes easy drive to the world-known Ubud center. Encompassing a collection of 30 Balinese styled rooms and villas, the resort is nothing but a peaceful retreat where any soul will immerse in a total relaxation.

FAQ

Below are our most popular questions for our Rejuvenate in Bali Travel Event. If your question still has not been answered please email us using the button below.

What are your Cancellation and Refund Policies? Does my trip include Travel Protection?

Please see our Cancellation and Refund Policy here for more information.

No, travel insurance is not included in your travel package. We highly recommend that you protect your investment by purchasing some sort of travel insurance. When registering for and booking this trip, each traveler must indicate whether or not they wish to purchase travel insurance. Your initial deposit must include the full cost of coverage.


Will I require a Visa?

Yes. ALL US Passport holders MUST arrive with at least 6 months of validity on their passport in order to be granted entry and a Visa on Arrival. Please plan to pay at a min. of $35 for your Visa. 

Is it necessary to be fully vaccinated in Indonesia?
Yes. Unfortunately, you will be denied entry into Bali if you are not fully vaccinated OR cannot show an official statement from your health care provider stating that you are exempt from vaccination.

Do I REALLY need to purchase Travel Protection?

Yes, according to our observations. While it is not required for our Rejuvenate in Bali Travel Event, we strongly advise you to purchase travel insurance for your trip regardless of whether or not it is purchased through us. As we like to say, having travel insurance and not needing it is preferable to needing travel insurance and not having it. Please keep this in mind when registering for our event. 

Do I need to take a COVID test before arriving in Indonesia and returning to the United States?

The Republic of Indonesia has updated its COVID entry travel restrictions as of April 22, 2022. You will be required to arrive with a  negative COVID test taken within 24 hours of your scheduled departure flight. Further, there are quarantine protocols in place should you need  to follow them. Read more on these and all COVID entry restrictions from the Republic of Indonesia.  


Please be advised that as of June 12, 2022 the United States has lifted its COVID testing requirements allowing US passport holders to re-enter the country without having to complete a COVID test within 72 hours of your return flight home. 


Is it safe to travel to Indonesia during a pandemic? 

Safety protocols, procedures, and some travel restrictions are currently in place under The Republic of Indonesia law to ensure the safety of both nationals and tourists during this time. Tourists are still encouraged to wear facemasks and practice social distancing in public places. 


What happens if my roommate cancels and I still want to travel?

If your roommate cancels and you stay on the reservation, it will be converted to single occupancy and you will be invoiced at the new rate.


If your roommate cancels after you have paid in full or after the entire booking has been paid in full, you will be held responsible for any additional costs. Because there will only be one person in the room, your reservation must be changed to single occupancy. This is because your reservation was initially booked at double occupancy, which resulted in a lower room cost.


Are flights included?

Yes. Roundtrip flights from Philadelphia (PHL) are included in your travel package. However, all participants are responsible for their own transportation to/from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). 


Do I need to exchange my currency? When should I exchange?

Yes. The Indonesian Rupiah is the Republic of Indonesia's official currency. You'll need to exchange your currency, which you can do before you arrive by visiting your local bank. Alternatively, once in Bali, you can exchange at the airport or any authorized financial institution offering currency exchange services. As we get closer to departure, we'll send an email to all registered guests with more information on where you can complete currency exchange. It is best to keep small bills on hand at all times because they are easier to tip with. We recommend visiting XE Currency Converter for rates and comparisons.


Do you offer Roommate Placement?

We do not, unfortunately, at the moment. However, this can change at any time, especially if you find yourself in need of a roommate. If this is the case, please email us here and let us know if you would like Roommate Placement Assistance in the future!


This is the first time I'll be traveling with your Travel Agency. 

Will there be any meetups before our departure date?

First and foremost, thank you for your participation. We can hardly wait to meet you! Unfortunately, we no longer host pre-departure meet and greets. We have, however, planned a very fun and exciting poolside get-together to kick-start our week in Bali. So grab your straw hats and shades!


What is the age range of your company’s Travel Events?

Our itineraries attract and are carefully designed for women in their forties and fifties who want to travel, reconnect with life, spread love, and good vibes, and live on purpose. These women are professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners, mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, and friends, as well as trendsetters and innovators. Most travel events cater to women between the ages of 40 and 55, but women in their 30s and 60s have joined us!


What is the trip pace of your company’s travel events?

Our travel events are intended to be enjoyed at leisure. All of our tours have an off-the-beaten-path vibe, allowing our clients to fully immerse themselves in the destination. You'll notice that each travel event has its own theme and pace, depending on the itinerary. Our Bali Rejuvenate Getaway will include culture and history, entertainment, yoga and soul-care, gastronomy, and beaches. However, expect to do a lot of walking.


Is there someone from The Globe Trotting Divas, LLC who will be with the group for the entire trip?

Absolutely! At our host hotel or resort, our owner, Anitra, or one of our friendly and knowledgeable Travel Events Hosts will always greet you. In some cases, we will arrive a day or two ahead so that we can properly prepare to welcome you. For this particular tour, a Travel Events Host from The Globe Trotting Divas, LLC will be ready to greet you at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) and will travel to Bali and remain with the group.
