The St. Regis Bali Resort’s soaring lobby leads to a black-sand pond glowing with the light of 100 flickering tiki-torches. Inside, past a two-acre tropical garden featuring carnivorous plants, the 123 suites and villas are cosmopolitan with a dose of island lilt, kitted out with patterned rugs over hardwood floors, louvered windows, gauzy curtains and rich brass textures that are offset by local fabrics in soft jades and oranges. Some accommodations include private Jacuzzis, beachfront access or direct slips into the 40,000-square-foot lagoon. Rounding out the resort are three fine-dining restaurants and two bars, non-motorized watersports and a full-service Remède Spa with an outstanding reputation.
In the Area
Calm waters, sandy beaches, and high-end hotels — not to mention three-manned security checkpoints — have made Nusa Dua a tourist-friendly enclave. Unfurl your towel at Pantai Geger beach, which offers especially calm waters and maintains some local character. If you get tired of the ubiquitous watersports, mosey down the footpath that runs from Ayoda Resort north along the water almost to the top of the Tanjung Benoa spur (over four miles in length) and passes two spits with temples along the way. Looking for some culture? The Pasifika Museum showcases the arts in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific, offering paintings by Gaugin and a variety of wood and stone artifacts.
How to Get There
I visited in November and had the most incredible time. The service, staff, food and the resort are fabulous.I absolutely loved my stay at The St. Regis Bali Resort, and as a solo traveller never once did I ever feel bored or lonely. I love the fact that the hotel is spread out over so many lush acres, and that there are so many dining options. I felt totally relaxed, having treated myself to some spa time, as well as spent lots of time relaxing on the private beach. The staff are absolutely wonderful, and the service impeccable. I actually cried when it was time to leave.
I will be back!
I can't say enough good things about this resort so I will just summarize below:
1- service: service is impeccable. Staff are attentive, thoughtful, efficient and genuinely friendly. A big thank you to Carlos, one of the managers, who ensured that our first trip with our two months old baby was perfect.
2. Landscaping/privacy: the landscape is just genius. You get hundreds of meters of fresh and salt water pools surrounding the property, all of which are bordered with dense vegetation of a variety of trees, bushes and flowers, so you feel there is No one else around. The villas have plunge pools and are also hidden behind vegetation for optimal sense of privacy.
3- food: there are several restaurants in the property- my favourites were the Indonesian and fish restaurant next to the beach.
We first stayed at the St. Regis Bali in 2017. We have been looking forward to this return visit a year later. As in 2017, we were in a Gardenia Villa with easy access to the main building and the Kayuputi restaurant.
We took full advantage of the delicious offerings at Kayuputi - first, with a lunch on Day 1, followed by the decadent Astor Diamond Sunday Brunch on Day 2. In 2017, I had wondered how a Sunday brunch could last four hours. This time, I didn't question the timing; I simply enjoyed the decadent offerings, course after course.
For those unfamiliar with the St. Regis brunch, it is not a buffet. Rather, each course is brought to the table. One can turn down the offerings or ask for extra helpings. There are also a la carte menus that one can order. We ended up ordering one of each dish to share. All the food is followed by a dessert cart, which we did not turn down.
Breakfast at Boneka is served buffet style. However, there are additional items that one can order. Let's just say that we did no go hungry at the St. Regis.
Service is friendly and professional throughout the hotel. We did not use the Remede Spa this time but took time to visit it to purchase some of the Remede toiletries. Unfortunately, the toiletries were not available for sale this time.
This hotel offers unparalleled luxury at its best!
Merci, Nico, et bonne chance en Chine!
If I had to say what could made my stay at the St. Regis better, the only thing I can think of is that my stay at this hotel was too short! For everything else this was an amazing stay thanks to the impeccable service and astonishing location. Starting with the arrival at the airport, the hotel provided complimentary transportation with VIP treatment. After a full day flight there is no better welcome then this. Check in was personal and smooth. The hotel has only suites and villa’s and to my pleasant surprise I was upgraded to a salt water lagoon villa that is simply stunning: it feels like home but then way better! The service is greatly enhanced through a butler service that never felt intimidating and was very natural. Augus explained all featured and made sure all wishes were granted. Dining options were excellent with high quality food. In particular, the local restaurant is a must with authentic Indonesian dishes that contain all local spices including their famous and delicious sambals (in my view the world’s best spicy condiment). Breakfast is an experience with signature items that I never saw before such as the lobster omelette and the fois gras egg Benedict. Delicious and a perfect start of the day. The beach is really beautiful and, especially for Indonesian standards, very clean. Picturesque views and the ideal place to join a cool drink or snack. The staff treat you as a royalty and they were all exceptionally friendly, warm and professional. It is the ‘invisible hand’ that makes this place what it is. Status recognition is sublime and included a very interesting chocolate (!) based toiletries gift box that I never saw before. Upon check out there was one last surprise: transportation to the next destination was again complimentary. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I can’t wait to visit this gem again.
Planning a honeymoon after the wedding which only took few weeks and it turns out perfect!
My husband and I would like to have a super laidback honeymoon; a chance to unwind from bustling busy daily life. We choose to stay in St. Regis for the first 2 nights of our total 4 nights in Bali.
We did choose a good one! We greeted by wonderful people from the security on the vehicle check point where we presented with frangipani and a heartful welcome along with welcome by the concierge and butler who gave another sweet surprise (white rose with sweet message) and took us around the resort before showing us to the room.
When we enter the room, we are surprised by not only 1 but 5 little surprises for us. Chocolates, bathtub filled with roses and frangipani, couple swan made from towels and more chocolates. The butler also offered us to do the St. Regis legendary unpacking and packing service for our luggage. We were so blown away by the hospitality.
Not to forget their wonderful breakfast; we ordered Boneka River Lobster Egg Omelet and Farms Egg with sunny side up. Everyone in the restaurant were very helpful and accomodating.
We spent most of our time on the beach or if not in the swimming pool which was so nice, clean and relaxing.
My husband and I felt so relax throughout our stay and will definitely come back soon. We would like to thank everyone in St. Regis who make our honeymoon moments to remember.
