Ever looked forward to a tropical break only to fall ill when you arrive? A change in place, weather and food can sometimes leave you suffering from certain health woes and this is only made worse when you are unprepared. Whether it’s just a common cold or a nasty bout of traveller’s tummy, you don’t want to spend your days in bed when you should be chilling outside, making the most of the sun, sea and surf in Bali.
It’s better to see a doctor and get medication when you’re feeling a bit under the weather. So, where to see a doctor in Bali?
Bali Doctors and Hospitals
Bali has a selection of hospitals and clinics offering healthcare services that can be trusted and are of sound quality, some at par with international standards. From small, specialized clinics to all-encompassing hospitals complete with ICUs and emergency rooms, there is a range of healthcare services depending on the severity of the problem and your proximity to the closest option.
Bali International Medical Center(BIMC), Kuta
This is the best and one of the most recognised hospitals in Bali. If you’re looking for a hospital with an international setting where all doctors and nurses speak English, then this is the place to go. This hospital caters almost exclusively to foreigners in Bali. Most insurance companies have a tie-up with them so you won’t be have to pay upfront and the hospital will directly bill your insurance company. The facilities, treatment and attention given at BIMC is remarkable. They have a 24 hour medical center and also a doctor service available on calls to hotels or villas in Bali. BIMC also has a new hospital in Nusa Dua.

SOS International, Kuta
Most expats in Bali prefer visiting BIMC or SOS for the western standards offered here and the ease of payments through your insurer. For any medical emergencies, SOS offers quick medical assistance. They also offer a fleet of air ambulances for emergencies that require medical evacuation.

Both BIMC and SOS are western owned and operated, and are well connected for access from Kuta, Nusa Dua and Sanur. Since these clinics are headed by American, Australian, and British doctors, they are more expensive than care at the local Indonesian hospitals and clinics. Hence, it’s always better to have travel insurance.
Sanglah Public Hospital, Denpasar
This is the local public hospital in Bali and is good enough to cater to major illnesses, accidents and surgeries. They also have ambulance service for emergency.
