Bali is one of those places that, when you simply hear the island’s name, you imagine impossibly blue waves splashing against absurdly gorgeous golden beaches, while you sip an extraordinary cocktail with a name you can’t even pronounce. Normally, it’s the kind of dream destination some of us will only ever visit through the magic of TV and movies, but things aren’t normal these days.
Strange times sometimes call for exceptional opportunities.
Like most tourism havens that have been hit hard by closures, Bali and her people have faced unprecedented challenges and made significant sacrifices. Closed for more than a year, this nation is ready to bounce back in a big way, but also with a focus on patience. The “Back to Bali” campaign was launched by Finns Bali, the popular, vibrant beach club, not only as a means of reinvigorating the economy, but also offering travelers something they don’t find in a lot of deals: flexibility.
“There are no words to express how excited we are to welcome travelers from around the world ‘Back to Bali’,” said Beau Whittington, Chief Operating Officer at Finns Bali. “We created this campaign to make the dream of Bali travel start to become a reality again. This campaign is not just about Finns, but the entire island and every industry that relies on tourism. While we realize there is a long road ahead, this first step is monumental, and we look forward to welcoming the world to paradise.”
In this case, it’s the flexibility to merely pay a $69 (U.S.) deposit now and then pay the rest and actually travel within the next three years. The total cost is approximately $350, which is a fraction of the true value of $1,050 in credits for accommodations, food and beverage, and the Finns Bali VIP membership. (Airfare isn’t included, however.) Picky visitors needn’t stress, though, as the credits can be transferred between the three categories for the sake of keeping the getaway customized.
And with more than 100 hotels and resorts and 500 villas to choose from, in addition to 150 tour operators, the Back to Bali campaign is ideal for families, couples, and solo travelers.
It’s for anyone at any time. Within the next three years, of course.
