FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
• Who is Teaching Yoga on this retreat? We have the great fortune to have 2 Teacher Guides, Silvia Mordini E-RYT and Jacob Young RYT. You’ll find more about your 2 Guides: Silvia Mordini and Jacob Young on our Guide Page http://www.alchemytours.com/your-guides/
• Do I need a visa to visit Bali? Yes, depending on your nationality. U.S. passport holders will need to show a passport valid for six months after the arrival date in Bali, a return ticket and $25USD (in exact change) for a 30 day visa. Visa regulations have been in flux in Bali for almost a decade so it is recommended that you check with your consulate for the most up to date information.
• How do I get from Denpasar to the retreat? Transfers are included via private transport. If you have any questions regarding your arrival time and transportation availability, please contact Alchemy Tours (firstname.lastname@example.org) before booking. Occasionally flights arrive into Denpasar in the early morning hours (1-5am) which can make timely transfers difficult.
• What is the electrical currency/outlet in Bali? Bali utilizes the standard British plug (two flat blades and one flat grounding blade) and the European plug (two round pins) and is at 230V. Adapters will be necessary if you are taking any electrical items.
• Do I need any inoculations? Generally speaking, traveling to foreign countries exposes you to new germs and diseases. All inoculations or malaria tablet inquiries need to be directed to your physician for an accurate assessment of your individual need or preference.
• Is there internet access on property? While we hope you’ll try and unplug… yes, there is wi-fi on property.
• What will the weather be like? Because of it’s equatorial location, Bali tends to have fairly stable weather with the ‘wet’ season occurring between mid November and April and the ‘dry’ season between May and October. It is generally always hot with temperatures hovering in the mid to high 80s and up.
• Will I need to ‘dress’ for dinner? The dress code is completely up to you. It is very warm well into the evenings so dress for comfort over fashion. There is no ‘dress code’ in this relaxed and kicked-back atmosphere.
• How do I book an optional excursion? All excursions can be booked at the retreat at any time during your stay. If there is something that you know you absolutely MUST experience while in Bali, it’s best to book early in the week to avoid disappointment.
