Since we launched The Bali Sun in 2019, it’s been a wild ride!

We’ve gone from a tiny site with a few hundred readers to being Bali’s biggest online daily newspaper for tourists, digital nomads, and expats.

Over 400,000 of you visit the site every month, and readership just keeps growing. 

First and foremost, The Bali Sun is dedicated to bringing you all the up-to-the-minute news and happenings on the island and around the province.

But we want to bring you more of everything Bali…so we created The Bali Sun Premium, and we think you’re going to love it.

We know our readers love a good deal, and this, we feel, is the deal of the century.

For USD 3.99 a month, our readers get the full The Bali Sun Premium experience or save 20% and pay just USD 39 a year.

‘Sign me up now’ we hear you cry! Here’s everything you need to know!


Ad-Free Experience

Yep, you read that right, The Bali Sun Premium members can enjoy an ad-free reading experience; both on mobile and on desktop (just remember to sign in to The Bali Sun Premium across your devices!) 

Travel Savings 

This is perhaps the most exciting part of the premium package. We are stoked to have partnered with some of Bali’s hottest brands to bring you exclusive travel discounts.

We will be adding more travel savings discounts every month, and the process is super simple.

For activities and experiences, IRL, simply flashes your digital Bali Sun membership card; for activities and experiences that require online booking, you’ll find all your discount codes in the travel savings card section of the site.
