Our “No Risk” COVID-19 Cancellation, Deferral and Refund Policy

​The standard cancellation policy applies to all stays, however where a guest is unable to travel to the location of our properties, due to travel restrictions put in place as a result of COVID-19 then we do offer the following additional rights for cancellation, deferral of stay and refund.

For all bookings made after 1st April 2020 for stays from 19th December 2020:

  • Guests can defer their stay any time up until 30 days before check-in date and transfer 100% of what they have paid towards another stay at the same villa within the next 12 months of the same or greater value.
  • If guests have not notified us of deferring their stay by 30 days before check-in, then the second payment shall be due and payable in full.
  • After making the second payment, guests can still defer their stay with us any time up until 7 days before check-in date and transfer 100% of what they have paid towards another stay at the same villa within the next 12 months of the same or greater value.
  • If guests fail to request deferral of their dates at least 30 days before original arrival date, or fail to make the second payment as requested, then we shall do our best to work with the guests, but reserve the right to cancel the booking and retain up to 50% of the total amount due and payable.
  • If guests are unwilling or unable to defer their stay, then we reserve the right to retain up to 50% of the total amount due for the guests stay, and will refund anything paid by the guests above this back to the guests.
  • If by the end of 2022 guests have been unable to travel on either their original dates, or on their deferred dates, then we shall make a full refund of any amount paid by guests, less any bank charges/credit card fees or exchange rate differences.

For all bookings made after 1st April 2020 for stays before 19th December 2021, during which period special COVID-19 monthly and daily rates apply:

  • Where a guest is unable to travel to the location of our properties, due to travel restrictions put in place as a result of COVID-19 then the guests shall be entitled to a full 100% refund within 7 days of the dates of their original stay, less any card processing fees or exchange rate losses as appropriate.

Covid-19 Bali International Flight Restrictions

Except for the exceptions below, the Indonesian Government has announced that international tourists are not currently allowed to travel into Indonesia until 2021 at the earliest.

As of 10th September 2020, travel restrictions have been put on any travellers to Indonesia by 59 countries, due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Jakarta. Please check the situation before booking your flights to Bali therefore.

Foreign nationals already in Bali or Indonesia, and with a stay visa, are able to travel to Bali from other locations within Indonesia subject to the same restrictions as Indonesian citizens (see “Domestic Flight Restrictions” below)

Currently only the following foreign nationals are able to enter into Indonesia:
1. Foreigners already with a valid work permit or stay visa
2. Diplomats
3. Humanitarian, Medical, and Food Aid Support 

Any person coming to Indonesia must have a valid Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test. Full list of obligations is below:

If there are no PCR and rapid tests (available) in certain locations, the (travel) documents can be completed with a health certificate of being symptom-free from hospital doctor / health center.

Covid-19 Bali Domestic Flight Restrictions

On 8th June 2020, Indonesia changed the advice so that only a Medical “COVID Free” certificate with a “Rapid Test” were required for any person wishing to take a domestic flight. This is likely to change shortly (currently 10th September) as the “Rapid Test” only tests for anti-bodies, and is deemed unreliable by the WHO as it gives many false positive results. Masks continue to also be required for any passengers taking domestic flights within Indonesia.

Full list of obligations to be met by domestic travellers coming to Bali:

The Indonesian government also increased the occupancy allowed on domestic flights from 50% to 70%.

Most domestic airlines now run regular scheduled flights to Denpasar from Jakarta and some other major Indonesian cities.

COVID-19 Bali Local Restrictions

Batu Belig / Seminyak Beach on 12th July 2020

Since 1st July 2020 all public beaches in Bali are now open and accessible to the public. Bars, restaurants and most other tourist attractions in Bali are currently open and accessible as normal, but please check individual businesses to be sure.

Some regencies including Klungkung regency (where Bougain Villa and Villa Rosita are located) require a Certificate of Health from guests in order for them to stay, but almost all other locations do not (including Karangasem, Gianyar and Badung Regencies where all of our other villas are located.)

There are no check-points or any other travel restrictions on travel within Bali.

Covid-19 Bali Villa Closures

Klungkung Regency, where Villa Rosita and Bougain Villa are located, still requires all guests to provide a Certificate of Health issued by a doctor or hospital.

Bougain Villa has however been inspected and awarded a special certificate so that guests are able to stay at Bougain Villa without any restriction.

We are in the process of getting the same inspection certificate for Villa Rosita, however at this time Villa Rosita is only able to accept guests that have a Health Certificate.

All our other villas in Bali remain open without restrictions, including our ocean front villas (Villa Anjani and Villa Talia Vashti) in Karangasem (a different regency) where there is no requirement for guests to provide a Certificate of Health.

Covid-19 Bali Local Villa Protection

We have however taken several additional measures at all our properties to protect the safety of our guests and staff against Covid-19 including:

  • Before and after each set of guests leave, the villa is thoroughly cleaned, and in particular all surfaces wiped with soap and water or anti-septic
  • Hand Sanitizer is provided at the entry to all villas, and all staff and guests entering the villa are required to use it.
  • All staff will wear masks at all times while they are working at the villa.
  • Only staff and guests are allowed in the villa while guests are staying and upon guest request, access to the villa by staff can also be limited.
  • Any signs of fever, or any case of Covid-19 in the same village as any staff member, will result in the staff member being quarantined at home for at least 14 days.

The additional cleaning does take more time, and so we have also temporarily pushed back the standard check-in time to 3pm.

If there are not guests staying the night before, it is no problem to arrive earlier than 3pm, but otherwise the staff do need the full 4 hours after guest check-out at 11am to clean and prepare the villa for you.
