Bali Silent Retreat Bali island map

Location & Transport

Bali Silent Retreat is located 1.5 hours Northwest of Ubud and 2-2.5 hours North of Denpasar airport by car. The airport is in Denpasar (airport code DPS), the Ngurah Rai airport.

You will need to book a DayPass to enter for the Day – with an orientation tour.     If you want to just walk around and check it out, send an email to bsrbookings@balisilentretreat.com, asking for a tour;  the staff will prepare for your arrival and organize a tour for you.     Sorry- ‘drop ins’ aren’t practical, as our guests are in silent sanctuary, as well as, the  kitchen harvests our organic vegies and prepares for a specific number of guests.

Be careful if you are using Google Maps to navigate, as it takes you by way of a washed out bridge.
It only works if you divide the route into three sections:

  • Ubud/Denpasar/Kuta etc to Mengwi
  • Mengwi to Jalan Batukaru Tabanan
  • Jalan Batukaru Tabanan to Bali Silent Retreat.

Other Transport

It is fine to hire your own driver, but it’s best to ask Baby Ketut to chat with them about directions.

We do not encourage you to use Uber. Many guests have reported frustrating experiences with Uber drivers.

Please arrive to the retreat before 4pm.

Your flight will need to arrive at Denpasar Airport by noon: (One hour to pass through immigration and two hours for the car trip to the resort, and 1 hour for check-in and a full site orientation.) Our reception office closes at 5:30pm.

If you cannot arrive to the retreat by 4pm it is no problem, Baby Ketut will recommend a hotel for the night and then collect you first thing in the morning so you can enjoy an inspiring introduction to the retreat.
