Taxi or Driver and Vehicle to Uluwatu from Kuta for dinner

We would like to have sunset cocktails and dinner at the Bulgari hotel.

We are staying in Tuban

What is a better way to go?

Shalll we get a taxi either way

Or get a driver and vehcile to wait for us

(we anticipate being there for 4-5 hours)

Vehicle and driver has been quoted as 250000 rupiah

Does anyone know how much a taxi fare would cost?

Many thanks

My guess is the taxi will cost about 100,000 each way. Probably better to get the driver.

I agree with Yamanote, a taxi for instance from the airport to Nusa Dua is around 110,000Rp. If you are going from Kuta/Tuban to Uluwatu return and have a quote for 250,000Rp, I think that's very reasonable.

Phew, 4 - 5 hours is one very loooong dinner...good for you!

Oh our plan is to have cocktails by the Bulgari bar and watch the sunset

Then have dinner at the restaurant next tot he Bar

(4-5 hours included travel time approx 30mins each way for the drivers time)

Thank you, I will confirm my ride with the driver and transport rather than taxi

I was concerned that the way back to Kuta be open to be charged extra as taxis arent that frequent in the area

You can also do that at the Ayana (Rock Bar) if you don't want to drive so far to Uluwatu.

Decent restaurants there too (but expensive) or have a great and inexpensive meal at Pepenero at Temple Hill, Jimbaran.

Thank you for advice

Yamanote, I have a soft spot for the Bulgari hotel, I kinda think its fair!

My husband bought me a Bulgari watch for my birthday

Its only fair that I buy him a Bulgari cocktail! Or maybe two!

BTW I have booked a driver and vehicle, rather than going by taxi

Thanks again
