Belajar Bali

Belajar is a luxury retreat in the heart of Canggu with 8 beautiful suites, a pool, jacuzzi and a stunning communal space. Everything about Belajar is aesthetic, from the sunken couch to the lampshades and the door handles. There are staff onsite 24/7, housekeeping staff during the day, and security overnight. 

The staff are able to help you with scooter rental, taxi day trips or organising a spa day for you in your suite. 

When you arrive at Belajar, you will be greeted by the friendly staff team with a welcome drink and shown to your suite.

Location of Belajar

Belajar is located on a popular street in Canggu called Batu Balong. Despite being such a busy area, being at Belajar is so peaceful and you feel instantly away from the hustle and bustle of the street nearby. 

Belajar is around a 5-minute drive from the beach and a short walk from a supermarket and cafes and restaurants. Unfortunately, it is not suitable for those who require accessible accommodation.

Relax in the Lounge area

The sunken couch area was one of our favourite places to relax in Belajar. Paired with a unique wooden table and surrounded by aesthetic ornaments this is a peaceful spot to relax and read a book under the air conditioning.

The communal area also features an open staircase that leads up to an open hammock which is laid out with cushions and blankets. There is also access to a small cold water jacuzzi that looks down to the pool area and suites below. At the opposite end there is a lovely quiet library area with a selection of books and comfortable seats to relax on. Perfect on a rainy afternoon.

Unwind in the Bedroom 

We stayed in suite number 5 during our stay at Belajar, however, all of the suites are the same. Outside the suite is a swing and a bean bag and all suites look out onto the pool area. The sliding doors open up to a bed in the central area featuring a blanket and gorgeous cream cushions. There is a full-length mirror as well as a dressing area and an open wardrobe framed with a draped curtain. There is a safe and international plug in the bedroom as well. 

The bed is extremely comfortable and everything about the suite feels very luxurious.

Get Naked in the Bathroom

The bathroom in your suite at Belajar feels nothing short of luxury. The closed glass roof with bamboo lined below gives you the feeling of showering outside without the mosquitos.

In the bathroom, you will find a hair dryer as well as hand soap and moisturiser and shower gel and shampoo.

Cook up a Feast in the Kitchen 

There is a small kitchen area in Belajar with a fridge and a hob which you can use if you are wanting to cook. Unlimited tea, coffee and drinking water is available here and there is even a milk frother and a soda stream, how about that for added luxury? 

A gorgeous long wooden dining table is the centre piece in the communal area which sits underneath low-hanging wooden light shades. Even the tone of the lights creates a relaxed mood and atmosphere in this area.

Indulge in the Local Food

Being located in the heart of Canggu on Batu Balong, you won’t be stuck for choice when it comes to finding some local food. There are many great restaurants within walking distance of Belajar or you can go a little further and find somewhere closer to the beach. 

Some of our favourites include, Crate Cafe, Cafe Coach, Warung Ava and Brunch Club.

Before You Leave for Bali

Before you set off on your way to Bali, there are a number of things you will need to get organised to ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey. These include what to pack, where to stay and what is the best insurance for your trip to Scotland. All of this is discussed in detail below.


How to Get an Indonesian Visa

As for the Indonesian visa itself, getting a visa for Bali is relatively straightforward if you come from one of the listed Visa on Arrival countries. If your country is on this list, all you have to do is turn up at the airport with a valid passport and you will be granted 30 days in the country. This costs around £28.

If you wish to stay longer than 30 days, you will need to buy a Visa on Arrival Extension. You will then need to extend your visa a further 30 days either by yourself or by paying a visa agent to do so for you.

You can read our full guide to extending your Indonesian visa right here.

How to Get Around Bali

With so much to see and do around Bali, it begs the question of how you should plan to get between all of these activities. When in Bali, you really have two options to get around: self-drive scooter or hiring a taxi driver.


Renting a Scooter in Bali

By far the cheaper and better option to get around the island, renting a scooter in Bali is the easiest way to see as much of this island as you can. Renting a scooter can cost as little as £3/day, with the cheaper rates being offered for long term rentals.

You can rent a scooter from your hotel or homestay itself, or if you are staying in a populated area such as Uluwatu, Canggu or Ubud, you can rent a scooter from a number of shops nearby.

Go Jek and Grab

When you arrive in Bali, one of the first things we would recommend doing is downloading the apps Go Jek and Grab. Both of these apps work similar to Uber in the UK, you can order a taxi on them and you can also order food. If you are not confident in driving a scooter we would definitely recommend this option.

Hiring a Driver in Bali

An easier and much more relaxing way of exploring around Bali is to hire a personal driver to chauffeur you between sights for the day. You can either book a tour online with a detailed itinerary and a set price for the sights you want to see, hire a driver from around the streets of Ubud and barter a price, or book a driver for a day from an online taxi app, like GoJek or Grab.

The cheapest of the above options is definitely with the online taxi apps, who have a set price and do not overcharge for these services. If you want to enjoy a slightly more upmarket experience, booking a a day tour experience will give you a bit more for your money.

You can view the best tours available for around Ubud right here.

What to Pack for Your Trip to Bali

Given the climate of Bali in general, packing for this trip is relatively straight forward. In the southern lowlands of Bali it is hot and humid most of the time, however if you venture into the northern highlands the temperature will drop with altitude.

When it comes to the weather, Bali is a tropical country meaning it has two seasons: wet season and dry season. Bali is one of the best holidays in Asia in September During your visit to Bali, it will most likely rain, and if you happen to visit during the wet season, it will rain a lot. Make sure you pack a waterproof or a poncho for your days out adventuring to avoid getting too drenched.

As a general rule for packing for Bali, it is best to think “layers”. Pack a few light layers of clothing, including a jumper and a waterproof, and wear as many layers as you want according to the weather.

For our full list of items that we pack no matter where we go in the world, check out our full packing guides over here.

Given the beautiful sights and scenery that you are no doubt going to see around Bali, we highly recommend packing a good camera for your trip. If you want to read more about the cameras we use and why we love them, check out the link below.

What is the Best Travel Insurance for Bali

I know travel insurance is the least enjoyable thing to purchase and look at when you’re planning a trip, however, you wouldn’t want to be without it in the event that something happened. Accidents can happen anywhere and the extortionate medical bills will ruin your trip if you are not covered.

To ensure you have a stress-free trip with no worries about potential medical bills, make sure you cover yourself when you travel. We can recommend using SafetyWing, a backpacker-friendly and cheap insurance company that provides good coverage and support. It is also nomad-friendly, unlike most other insurance companies, meaning you do not need to worry about being out of your home country for too long.
