Bali joins MasterCard’s Priceless Cities Programme

Bali is second city in South East Asia included in the programme.

MasterCard has added the popular tourist destination of Bali to its Priceless Cities programme.

Bali is the second city in Southeast Asia to be part of Priceless Cities, three years after the launch of Priceless Singapore in 2012.

The introduction of Priceless Bali marks an extension and evolution of MasterCard’s existing “Destination Bali” programme that has been running for the last five years, during which cardholders have enjoyed access to a wide range of over 200 benefits and privileges available locally.

MasterCard holders will find numerous novel experiences with Priceless Bali, such as the opportunity to take to the skies on a private helicopter ride for an aerial view of the famed Uluwatu Temple that sits atop a 70-metre tall limestone cliff facing the open ocean. Or to do a guided culinary adventure on the Bali Food Safari to mystery restaurants.

Those who love art and design can spend an afternoon with internationally acclaimed French artist, Pascal Morabito, and even stay at his luxurious 12-bedroom villa that is used as a private gallery for his works.

Food lovers can indulge in a private Balinese feast prepared exclusively for them in their villa, while being entertained by a traditional Balinese dance performance.

There is a host of complimentary benefits including yoga classes, private massages, surf lessons, and horse riding, when booking at any one of the 700 luxurious villas available through Ministry of Villas.

Deborah Goldingham, Head of Marketing, South East Asia for MasterCard, said: “According to MasterCard’s Asia Pacific Destinations Index, this year Bali is expected to welcome over 7 million visitors who will spend US$11 billion and Priceless Bali will definitely strengthen the island’s appeal as a coveted getaway destination as we uncover hidden gems and allow visitors to re-experience Bali in surprising and unexpected ways.”
