RECOMMENDATIONS

Welcome to THE WĀVE BALI villas and welcome to Canggu!

 

We compiled a list of places to make your everyday ‘villa life’ with us as easy and enjoyable as possible:
From where to get the best coffee just a few footsteps from your villa, how to find a local supermarket, where to get cash, etc. (please forgive us – we couldn’t list all the beautiful places around).

GoJek” (it's like Uber) – the MUST-HAVE app while in Bali! Download the app and the island will be at your fingertips for transport & restaurant deliveries to your doorstep on their trusty motorbikes. Besides car rides, you can opt for a scooter pick-up in the app for a quicker commute, especially in heavy traffic. We recommend selecting 'GoRide Comfort' for a more spacious scooter experience.

Getting a local sim-card, the easiest place to get it is directly at the airport upon arrival. Best provider:"Telkomsel"  (red white logo) as they provide the best network.

Scooter: Bali is known for its scooter environment. While you can rely on personal drivers and GoJek taxis, we highly recommend renting your own scooter to fully experience the island in a personalized way. If you're new to riding a scooter, consider starting with a smaller rental one. Many guests have tried it for the first time here and quickly adapted, falling in love with the experience after a short adjustment period. If you need help with scooter rentals, we can help.
