You don't need prescription for Cialis at Century or Gaurdian or Watsons Apotek (I don't buy Viagra so can't comment).
I buy 20 MG tabs, which are alot more cost effective if you bite them in thirds. The cost is about 350 k for a packet of 2 (which gives me 6 shags).
Thos Blue pills
Keep in mind that if you are from OZ, you can get a prescription from a bulk billed doctor for free. Then go to a chemist and get you tablets. The price has changed and they are now only A $15 for four.
If you live in the US, our socialist health fund has its benefits!
Or they can take a page out of the Thailand business model and raise prices to offset the decline in revenue.
I just checked the Sanur prices for hotels on the web. Almost all hotels on the web have prices $100 USD or over with many in the $200 plus range. No special deals being offered. I don't know if they offer better prices to walk ups but that appears to be a dying trend in the hotel biz overall. Now they just point to the rack rate.
As for me, I just found a two story 1 bedroom villa with AIR BnB a few minutes walk west from their Main Street for $50 per night. More $$ left over for hobbying.
Hotels 30% occupancy
Just ask any of the bigger hotels and that's the approximate number being quoted.
And what's the answer to improving this situation.
Build more bloody hotels! In Bali.
Madness if you ask me.

That is hard to believe considering all the 747's and large Airbus landing in Bali. But after reconsidering the fact that those are mostly Chinese, Korean and Taiwanese tour groups it is possible.
Sanur is mainly FIt's (free independent travelers), that are families that are composed of European and Americans. But 30% is a shock. I remember after Sep 2002 .
You couldn't find a tourists. But to be that low is amazing.
You guys that are paying these insane prices at the Spas are crazy. Go to BKK and get better treatment for $65.00 for 2 hours. You are driving up the price by paying that much. The average wage in Bali is 2 juta a month. That's roughly $ 260.00.
In my quest to try more upmarket places I next went to Riverview Spa.
It's easy to find and I was staying reasonably close by in Seminyak so I just walked there. I was greeted by two guys and one of them explained the services to me in English. I chose the Luxury Room (the VIP room was in use, but I wouldn't have chosen it anyway as the only difference is that it seems to have a pool), with two girls for two hours. They then brought out the only three girls that were available. All three were attractive and early to mid twenties. I chose one and asked her to pick the other girl. The total cost was 2.3 M.
The girls then took me upstairs to the large room, undressed me and started the massage. They started off wearing kimonos and their massage skills were excellent. They soon took these off and progressed to more erotic massage and we were soon entangled together having a lot of slippery fun. Eventually this moved into some serious BJ and fucking (all covered) and I discovered that the girl I had chosen, because she seemed a little shy, was actually the real goer of the two and loved having my big bule cock inside her.
After the sex, we moved into the spa tub and had a bit more play there and they then washed me off.
This was expensive sex for Bali, but the premises are top notch, and the girls were willing and fun. One had some English but the other very little. I asked them if they get mostly bules here, given the prices, but they said it was mixed with both locals and bule.
Bali Exotique Spa
On my latest trip to Bali I decided to try some more upmarket places.
First stop was Bali Exotique Spa in Renon. I went there by taxi and it's a little out of the way so the taxi driver had some difficulty finding it but we got there eventually.
The premises are good, although just starting to get a little old and worn but nothing major. The photos on their website accurately show what the place looks like. I was greeted by the female receptionists and it quickly became apparent that they don't see a lot of bule here as everything was conducted in Indonesian. Fortunately my Indonesian is reasonable but she went through the options very quickly and so I wasn't clear on precisely what was different for each package so I just went for the 'full service' package which was 900 k for two hours. She then showed me photos of the girls on her phone and I selected one that appealed to me.
The receptionist then took me to the room which included a spa and a separate bathroom and I waited until I was joined by my 'therapist' whose name was Renata. She was attractive with a good body, although I later discovered some stretch marks on her belly. She undressed me and then led me to the large bed like massage table and started an excellent massage with her initially dressed but then removing her clothing until she was naked so she was able to give me a body slide and rub her pussy all over me. Her massage skills were excellent.
On turnover she asked me if I wanted a BJ and said the price would be 1 m. I laughed and we quickly negotiated full sex for 700 k. Over the top for anywhere else in Bali, but I knew I would be paying top dollar here. It was well worth it as her service was simply excellent, some of the best sex I've had anywhere.
On finishing and returning to the reception area I declined the meal which was included in the price as I wasn't at all hungry. While waiting for a taxi, a local guy came in and they explained things to him and the prices were the same as they quoted me.
In summary, a good place for a more upmarket experience and I would certainly recommend the service from Renata, although it may be difficult to navigate the process if you speak no Indonesian.
Can't say I know as I don't drink there.
What I can tell you is Triple be will close in late August.
But re-open down the road on the other side.
The owner of the land (77 X) died recently and the son will not renew the lease.
I did an audit on this bar as a mate was interested in buying it but I soon changed his mind!!
No money to made there with out significant cash input and little chance of a good return.
My assessment is that most of the bars are struggling in Sanur at the moment apart from perhaps Casablanca.
Hotels are running at 30% occupancy so it figures the bars are struggling too.
Hope they are more successful with that than Brown Sugar.
BTW: Is Brown Sugar also on decline?
Sorry for answering so late, but ISG is now blocked by my internet provider.
The massage is better in Onasis, specially with not too young lady, but the girl are more beautiful in Riverview. For the service everything depend from the girl.
Last year, I've had great fun with two girl, who are now married with bule.
889 X in Jln Blanjong has closed.
The leaseholder has commenced demolition of the buildings.
4 are will be made available for villas most likely.
Limling Bar on Danau Toba is up for sale.
In the meantime the owners have taken a lease out on the old Angels location.
On Danau Poso.
The bar should open late June / early July when renovations are completed.
The word is the the owners are contracting new girls from Jakarta for this establishment.
Yep, that's been my experience in Bali. You can go to any pharmacy and buy the pills without a prescription, including the state-owned Kimia Farma (orange and purple signs). TTG.
P.S. At " . This girl's story does not really add up as she wants to return to Jakarta for Ramadan. " It may not make sense to you or to me, but it sounds about right for Indonesia. About mid-week this coming week, the whole country comes to a screeching halt.
Other islands near Bali
I am spending next weekend in Sanur before embarking on a visit to Nusa Lembogan and Gili Islands-Trawagan. I have visited the latter island once before several years ago and know it's best to BYOG, however, wondering if the same rule applies to Nusa. I suppose I could try to bring someone from a Sanur X house or some other venue but that seems fraught with problematic issues. Has anyone spent anytime in Nusa?
I mentioned to the WG I have been with in Bali a few times about accompanying me and she immediately blurts out 'How much you pay me'?
Of course, I know that I would have to pay her but was hoping for a bit more subtlety.
Blue pill, etc.
Regarding the purchase of Mr. V, et. Al. , I was able to purchase a non-generic blue pill for about $15 USD) at a small pharmacy just a few days ago directly off the main drag of Legian in Seminyak. I was not under the impression a prescription is required due to the ease of purchasing. The pharmacist never blinked an eye at my request.
Yesterday, while relaxing on the beach, a guy came up to me to trying to sell viagra and cialis. I was sending him away when he noted he also had Kamagra jelly, which is hard to find here. As I purchased several of these from street vendor kiosks in Bangkok, I asked to see the box. They were packaged the same as in Bangkok and contained 7 to a box. He asked for a ridiculous price of 600.000 rp. I told him the price I paid in Bangkok, which is 50 bhat per package. I eventually paid him 150,000 rp for the box or about $11 USD. Have not tried it yet but the packaging seems legit and I prefer it over the pill. The guy also said you did not need a prescription here for Viagra and it's sold over the counter so really no need to have the hotel staff do it for you. And you don't know where the hotel staff is going to get the stuff. He could just as easily call this guy for the generic stuff as pay a visit to the pharmacy and pocket the difference.
On a separate note, a WG I have seen two times in Bali told me she just arrived from Jakarta last week and is looking for a waitress job here. However, she is dismayed at the pay. Apparently the waitresses earn as a standard about 2 million rps per month. A short term apartment (and I am sure it's dismal) here rents for 1 million rp. No wonder why girls have to supplement their income. However, this girl's story does not really add up as she wants to return to Jakarta for Ramadan, which starts later this week so maybe she came looking for a few quick scores, like me.
Thanks for the acknowledgement Barri. Paragraphing was never my strength.
My pleasure. Re the blue pill, I guess it will depend on where you stay. I've stayed at some very nice resorts over there and I wouldn't imagine the staff assisting as such. In this case, I stayed at a cheaper place on Poppies, so there were a number of staff making direct approaches to me on all things girly action. My bloke was a cleaner and general dogsbody. He initially offered to get me a massage or something more. Said he could take me somewhere to get a girl but I suggested 1 be brought to me. I asked that he get me a blue pill first, and if all was good I might get him to arrange a lady. I guess he was obliged to do the right thing so he might make a few more $ out of me to get a girl down the track. He got mine direct from a chemist (which I believe locals can do, but visitors can't). He would have been skimming some $ off the top for sure, but fair enough. I'd suggest you make an early approach to one of the staff and if they can't do it they will put you onto the right person. The staff at my hotel are paid the equivalent of $180- per month so any chance that they can make some more $ they will be all over it. Good luck and look forward to you post!
