Extensive improvements and expansion of the terminal facilities are due for completion by mid-2013. A second airport in the north of the island, linked to Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport by rail connection, is also at the planning stage.
Information desks (tel: (361) 751 011) are located in the arrivals areas of both terminals.
From Denpasar, follow the signs for Kuta, from which the airport is clearly signposted.
Bus: Buses from the airport are infrequent, so are therefore not a recommended option.
Shuttle: A cheaper alternative to the taxis is a bemo (shared minibus), which can generally be found a short distance from the car park. In addition, many hotels operate courtesy shuttles.
Taxi: Taxis are available outside Arrivals and operate on a pre-paid voucher system. Vouchers are sold at the official taxi desk close to the airport exit. The fare to Kuta is about Rp50,000 and to Denpasar around Rp90,000. Journey times vary considerably depending on traffic.
Fax, photocopy, secretarial and internet facilities are available in an executive lounge in the International Terminal. A number of other VIP lounges are located in both terminals. Meeting and conference facilities are offered by several local hotels, including the Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali (tel: (361) 755 577; www.holidayinn.com), which is 10 minutes from the airport.
There is a 2,000-capacity single car park adjacent to the terminals, containing both long- and short-term parking spaces.
Thrifty, Toyota, Hertz and local operators are represented at the airport. Car hire desks for these operators are located in both the International and Domestic Terminals.
