The brand focuses on location (the Lloyd's Inn Bali is located near plenty of eateries and shopping spots) but offers a tranquil immersive experience at the same time.

Hotel Review: HOSHINOYA Bali (Jalak) - Private and Luxurious Garden Pool Villa with Terrace in Ubud

My favourite way to get from Singapore to Bali is on Singapore Airlines Business Class (the 787-10 Dreamliner has a great regional Business Class product that is ahead of its competitors). Alternatively, you may consider flying on KLM’s 777-300ER Business Class product if that timing or price point suits you better. With all that being said, I usually fly in to DPS on SQ942 and there is usually only a short queue at immigration (just make sure you head to the line first before going to the bathroom). After I collected my bags, I was met with a private driver from the HOSHINOYA Bali who then escorted me to the car. Read my review of the Jalak Villa-type here in this luxurious Ubud property!

Hotel Review: Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort (Ocean Front Suite) - Luxurious Cliff Edge Property

One of my travel highlights this year is traveling to Uluwatu in Bali - the flight from Singapore to Bali is easy and I highly recommend Singapore Airlines' Business Class product on the 787-10 Dreamliner. I have flown it multiple times and I really think that it is the best regional Business Class product out there. The American Express Platinum Concierge somehow managed to negotiate with the InterContinental Bali Resort on my behalf to convert the airport transfer (which was included in my room rate there) into a private transfer to Uluwatu for a fee. As such, it was not long before I arrived in Anantara Uluwatu Bali Resort for one of the most luxurious weekends that I have ever spent in Bali.

Is Singapore Airlines operating 787-10 Dreamliner to Bali (DPS) This Year?

I will be flying to Bali again in September and when I logged in to my KrisFlyer account today to select my seats (even though I have already booked this flight a long time ago), I realised that the seat map in Business Class has now been replaced with a 1-2-1 configuration (as opposed to a 2-2-2 one that I have previously taken). Since Singapore Airlines is planning to replace the older A330-300s with the new 787-10 Dreamliners, this can only mean one thing (I think!) - my flight in September is going to be on the brand new Regional Business Class product!
