Why It’s a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare between San Francisco and Bali starts at $1,321 with taxes for travel in mid-September (Singapore Airlines). Add to that $375 per person, including tax, for five nights at Parigata Resort and $210 per person for three nights at Sahadewa Resort, and you’d be paying $1,906 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $14 less than that, this package covers the flight, eight nights’ accommodations, daily breakfast, a full-day tour, all transfers, and all taxes and fees.
More An additional set of cultural tours—two half-days and one full-day—is available for $135 per person. Extend your stay at Sahadewa Resort starting from $80 per person per night, based on double occupancy. Upgrade your accommodations starting from $104 per person.
