These Bali Hotels Have All-In Quarantine Packages That Let You Leave The Room During Isolation For Swims, Yoga & Other Activities
Quarantine, but make it feel like a vacay.
Bali has just reopened to vaccinated international tourists this month, and Singapore Airlines is relaunching direct flights — albeit non-VTL ones — to the island from Feb 16. Before you hastily book that long-awaited vacay, there are a few things to know. After all, a Bali getaway now is not like what you remember from carefree pre-pandemic days.
Under Bali’s current travel requirements, all foreign visitors are required to serve a five-day quarantine upon arrival in Bali, and this will have to be pre-booked before their arrival (at the time of writing, there are over 60 hotels approved for quarantine).
But isolating in Bali doesn’t always mean being cooped up in a room. Some hotels in Bali are offering all-in quarantine packages, more affectionately known as ‘warm up vacations’ so you can get into vacay mode even before your actual holiday starts.
By and large, these deals include accommodation, all meals, and most importantly, the mandated two PCR tests that visitors are required to undergo. Some will even do your laundry for you. And unlike most quarantines where you’re confined to the room, hotel activities are also included in the package, so you can leave the room or villa for a yoga sesh, a dip in the pool and more at designated zones for quarantining guests. Quarantine, but make it feel like a holiday.
But before you go, there are a few logistical matters to note. All international visitors to Bali are also required to be fully-vaccinated, have applied for a B211A e-visit tourist visa (Singaporeans included), have a negative PCR test within 48 hours of departure, and hold travel insurance with at least US$25,000 coverage (check the latest travel requirements here)
And while there are VTL flights between Singapore and Indonesia via Jakarta, there are currently no VTL flights from Bali to Singapore. In other words, if you fly direct between Singapore and Bali, you will still need to serve a stay-home notice (SHN) for seven days upon return to Singapore.
