Indonesia is hoping to reopen Bali to tourists by October, however, and even if you don’t fancy being among the first wave of travellers, there is a good deal you can secure for travel in 2021.
Conrad Bali’s deep discount offer
From now till 31 May 2020, guests can book a special rate at the Conrad Bali for stays between 1 July 2020 and 25 December 2021.
I asked about a few different dates, and got the same price quote, so I’m assuming it’s a fixed rate regardless of when you stay (the usual blackout dates like New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day apply).
What’s great is that the rates are available all the way up till December 2021- you couldn’t even book that far on the hotel’s website if you were so inclined. All bookings need to be made through the reservation department directly. To book, email [email protected] with booking code: SNSL
What does the rate include?
The rate includes:
- Accommodation for two people in a Deluxe Garden room
- Daily breakfast for two
How does it compare to regular prices?
Considering that rooms at the Conrad Bali usually cost 2,000,000 ++ IDR per night (unless you book in April, where I saw quite a few days pricing at around the 1,600,000++ IDR mark), this could potentially be a very good deal.
Do note, however, that this offer will not earn Hilton points.
Bookings are non-refundable, although this would contradict Hilton’s global Covid-19 waiver policy, which states:
Any individual reservations you make—even those described as “non-cancellable” (“Advanced Purchase”)—that are booked between today and June 30, 2020 for any future arrival date can be changed or cancelled at no charge, up to 24 hours before your scheduled arrival day.
I’m not sure which policy trumps which, so double check with the reservations department if in doubt.
A lot of Bali hotels are currently offering really good deals for prepaid stays, so it’s worth checking out the Facebook page of your favourite resort.
I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable locking in prepaid plans for 2020, but for 2021, I’m willing to make an exception.
