Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport Guide (DPS)
Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport is located 13km (8 miles) south of Denpasar, close to the Kuta resort area.
Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport is the third busiest in Indonesia and is the main airport serving the ever-popular tourist hotspot of Bali. Browse our Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport guide for information on how to get to the airport, where to stay nearby and facilities within the terminals.
A second airport in the north of the island, linked to Denpasar Ngurah Rai Airport by rail connection, is currently at the planning stage.
Information desks (tel: +62 361 935 1011) are located in the arrivals areas of both terminals.
From Denpasar, follow the signs for Kuta, from which the airport is clearly signposted.
Bus: A public bus runs from the airport to central Denpasar (journey time: 50 minutes) but its departure times can be infrequent and sporadic (ask at the airport’s information desk for assistance). For this reason most visitors choose to use either a shuttle or taxi service to travel to their destination.
Shuttle:A cheaper alternative to the taxis is an abemo (shared minibus), which can generally be found a short distance from the car park. In addition, many hotels operate courtesy shuttles to and from the airport.
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. Expect to pay roughly Rp50,000 for a journey to Kuta and around Rp90,000 to Denpasar. 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: +62 361 755 577; www.holidayinn.com), which is only a short drive 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 numerous local operators are represented at the airport. Car hire desks for these operators are located in both the International and Domestic Terminals.
