We have arranged for special conference rates at the conference venue, the Sheraton Senggigi Beach Resort. For your convenience we also list a number of other accommodation options. Please note that most rates are per room (single or double occupancy); where there is a price difference between single and double occupancy, this is noted. In March 2009 the exchange rate was about IDR 11,500 per USD. Most Indonesian hotel rooms have one king-size bed (queen-size in cheaper hotels); if you would like two separate twin beds, you must request this at the time of booking. This option may not be available at cheaper hotels.
