    Off to Bali, in two days , spending a week on outskirts of Kuta , in some resort Krtonya or something like this. This will be with grown up family. So I am guessing other parts of Bali need to be seen. Thinking of Airport to Amed , then into Ubed, then into Kuta with Family to finish.
    Want to have good accommodation of around $45 a night all should be clean , have Fan & Air con and a pool .How much from Airport to Amed, I know series of Villages .. Is this a daft plan ?
    Help please , leaving on jet plane tomorrow night :-)
    Thought I might throw in a little lite baiting re the Ashes for the Oz in Bali !!

    Far too late for any useful information for you I would be guessing.

    Amed is a long way from Denpasar airport - It would take two+ hours to get to the Amed area. Also, the area called Amed is spread out over a long strech of coast, and I wouldnt think a taxi driver from Denpasar would have much clue on where to take you, if you have nothing organised.
    I think yYou would be better to stay in Kuta or Sanur initially and organise bus transfer or a car and driver rental to take you, as well as somewhere to stay

    Agree that Amed is a fair distance from the airport - but I think it's worth going to, in my opinion. Much more laid back than Kuta - I would tend to leave it to the end rather than the start of the trip.

    If you've got money to throw about, I believe you can get a boat from Padangbai, Sanur, or somewhere down that area. And some of the more resort type hotels will probably offer transport.
