Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us about their time at Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport.

What to Expect

Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport consists of two modern terminals (Domestic and International) that offer plenty of options for dining, shopping and services, on both sides of security, including some 24-hour convenience stores. WiFi is available and sporadic outlets for charging mobile devices can be found in both terminals. Additional comfort can be found through fee-based access to one of the airport’s first class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

Traveller reviews have generally focused on the International Terminal, as the former Domestic Terminal closed down at night. If you have slept in the new Domestic Terminal please write a review. Travellers generally report good sleeping conditions in the International Terminal, with the staff viewed as friendly and accommodating to overnight sleepers. The terminal is clean, with an assortment of comfortable airside seating (including recliners and armrest-free couches), and plenty of quiet nooks conducive to sleeping. Potential sleep hindrances include mosquitos and weak air conditioning that makes for warm and humid waiting times. For uninterrupted sleep, there is a hotel onsite and some other hotels within a quick shuttle ride of the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

A recent reviewer (February 2018) warned of security strip-searching people and stealing their money.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
