As I was traveling on Singapore Airlines' Business Class cabin from Denpasar to Singapore, I was given access to the Premier Lounge at the Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). If you are traveling in coach or if you do not have lounge access, there are restaurants that you can choose from at the airport but the prices are actually quite high.
