Poste restante in bali or the gilis?
17th May, 2014
Has anyone used poste restante in bali (sanur or kuta) or the gilis? I need something sent to me and I am unsure if poste restante is still offered as a service. Alternatively, I might be able to have it sent directly to a hotel in the gilis but I don't know where I'll be staying til I get there. Ideas or advice?

I used to live in Sanur a couple of years ago and poste restante was still running at the small office on Jl Danau Buyan (a short walk from "McDonald's corner") - I'd assume it is still going.

An update: poste restante is still in existence in sanur, despite sanur post office staff denying it! We were turned away because the worker was stressed by the 30 plus people lined up. Even though my husband spoke indonesian and tried many ways to get the package, we were told that only denpasar accepts packages. After an unsuccessful trip to denpasar p.o., we returned to sanur, this time with the name of the person who signed for the package (thanks to online tracking). This time, the same p.o. staff found our mail. So poste restante does work but is highly dependent on the frame of mind of the staff member!
