Bali On A Budget: 9 Resorts That Offer Day Passes In Bali

Bali is home to some of the most luxurious resorts in the world. With miles of pristine beaches, crystal blue waters and the perfect mix of tropical foliage and green countryside, it’s no wonder that more than three million people flock to this island nation each year. If you are looking for world-class accommodations, you can absolutely find them in Bali.

But the question is, can you afford them?

Yes. You can. Even if only for a little while, thanks to a nifty guest pass program offered by some five star Balinese resorts. This program allows non-guests of the property to purchase a pass that allows them to enjoy the pool amenities of the property for a day with all the same privileges resident guests have.

So, which resorts offer these passes and how can you get your hands on one (or more) of them? Read on to find out.
