 The Alena Resort Luxury Genuine Experience by Pramana
Stay in a Bali villa and you’ll never want to stay in a hotel again! For the sense of privacy and intimacy, larger living spaces in a single compound comprised of separate pavilion and an added bonus of a swimming pool surrounded by tropical gardens. So hard to leave!

Car Rental:
Good for four people.
First day – IDR500k
Second day – IDR600k
Third day – IDR500k
Fourth day – IDR200k


Roughly IDR75k per meal (Indo cuisine)

Entrance Fees:

First day – IDR500k
Second day – IDR600k
Third day – IDR500k

TOTAL ESTIMATED EXPENSES: IDR3,191,500 (excluding accommodation and souvenirs)

You can check accommodation in Airbnb,, trivago. I didn’t include in the expenses as we have different preferences but I must say, stay in a Bali villa!

 Bring USD and tell your driver to drop you off in a money exchange center outside airport. Best deal is in Ubud
 You may contact our driver slash photographer Yan Nik. He can also customize your itinerary
 If you have adapter, bring it as they have round hole socket in the hotels
 Bring sunblock and water, always. They do not have “service water” in their restaurants
 Cheapest to buy pasalubong is in Tegalalang
 June – November are rainy months in Bali
 Buy some snacks in convenience stores
