More information on Bali Mountain Retreat


How do I get to Bali Mountain Retreat? Can you arrange transportation?

The easiest way to get to Bali Mountain Retreat is using our Private Transfer Service. Our driver will pick you up from the airport or your accommodation in Kuta or Ubud with an air conditioned vehicle. Alternatively, you can hire a private car and driver to bring you to Bali Mountain Retreat. Please refer to our Location & Maps for more information.

After recent experiences, we strongly recommend using our pick up service as we are difficult to find and Balinese drivers automatically go to their father Temple Batukaru. This detour adds 1 1/2 hours to the trip as we are not in this area. The price then usually rises. Be aware, taxis will not come up the mountain on these roads. Our local drivers know a shortcut that will reduce the trip by at least 45mins.

Note: If you are driving yourself please contact us for the map of the best route to Bali Mountain Retreat.

What is the weather like on the mountain? Should I bring a sweater?

Bali Mountain Retreat is located at 700m on Mt Batukaru. The temperature is comfortable year round. The evenings in Winter (July and August) may be cool, so we advise on bringing a sweater at that time.

Do you have air-conditioning in the rooms?

We are very fortunate not to need a/c here at 700m on the mountain. The weather is a comfortable year round, much cooler than the coast and all rooms are equipped with fans.

I am Vegetarian/Vegan. Do you have food options for me?

Absolutely! Our chef has a complete Vegetarian menu with many Vegan options. Let us know in advance if you have more specific dietary requirements and we will do our best to accommodate them.

Can we trek ourselves without a guide?

Yes, we can provide you with a map of the area which shows the treks you can walk yourselves. Our guided treks have the added bonus of a local guide with valuable information of the area and culture. Learn more about our Treks here.
