DPS Airport Overview

bali airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport (Code: DPS).

What to Expect

Bali 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 restaurants 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 guide below for locations and rates.

Sleeping in Bali Airport

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 guide below or read some traveller reviews for more tips.
