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
My 8-day stay here has been one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I cannot find fault with anything. The people were amazing. The room was large and spotless. The food was fantastic and varied. No matter where you wandered around the hotel there was always someone to greet you and to take care of your needs. But I must give a special mention to all the team who serviced the pool and beach area - Aris, Admaje, Adi Darmawan, Gus Jack, Dadus, Yudiana and Adif were absolutely at their job and could not have done anything more for us. They made our trip to the Poll and beach so enjoyable every day.
An amazing experience and I have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel as a great place to visit for a relaxing holiday.
Loved this restaurant everyone was so amazing and friendly, helpful and they even sang to mum on her birthday, it was so sweet, she loved it. The food was good, would have been nice to have a few cocktails included, but the cappuccinos we're amazing, best I had all holiday.
Excellent service from most staff. The four stars are for them. Every staff greeted us when we past them. I informed the reservations team that I am celebrating my birthday week and was presented a birthday cake on arrival. Every issue that I highlighted to the staff was resolved to their best efforts.
I stayed in a basic suite on the 5th floor. The suite is huge. The room has a luxurious feel but there are many little hardware issues (inadequate soundproofing, switches felt jammed, water ponding in shower room, scratches in the plastic bath, exposed light bulb, not so quiet and irratic air-con, insufficient or no air ventilation in bathroom, dust in some areas, dirty floors) that makes it less of a luxurious experience for me.
The breakfast on my last day was underwhelming. Every dish that I ordered or took was overdone. I wasted a lot of food that day. I didn’t order iced cappuccino but one staff brought it to me twice before he realised that it is for the next table.
We went to the beach after breakfast. the staff was busy setting up or cleaning. No one came over with water - this is just an observation, I don’t need water but nearly every review here mentioned that they were served the moment they set down on the deck chairs - maybe I didn’t sit on it long enough or have anything on me that identifies me as a guest and not some walk-ins taking photos. The beach is quiet but not private, not sure if it’s guarded (I went once at night and there was no guards on the left side near the villas) , anyone can walk in on the paved pathway from other hotels. There are guards standing near the next property on the right side (Mulia?) - noticed two guests from another hotel biking through St Regis and turning around, not sure if they were denied entry to the next property or the path ended there.
