Luxe villas with swimming pools, alfresco bathrooms, and hot tubs at this lush beachfront resort in Nusa Dua
Set within lush gardens inspired by Balinese rice fields, Mulia Villas’ vast open-air lobby gives way to a curling stairway that leads down to an exclusive, guests-only library, lounge and restaurant. Quirky artworks decorate the walls and budding orchids dot the exquisite wood stained tables and shelves. Although the villas are part of the mammoth Mulia resort complex, this intimate retreat feels very much like a private hideaway. The 108 villas are scattered around the gardens and feature spacious yards with stepping stones leading to thatch-canopied seating areas and private, current-controlled pools. Indoors, vaulted ceilings frame chunky furniture in green, bronze and gold, and a luxe bathroom with a rainfall shower behind a frosted glass door. Guests can also lather up in a discreet outdoor shower, or soak in the two-person Jacuzzi. Brit-based Aromatherapy Associates amenities are provided for an indulgent, spa-like experience. Equipped with a juice bar, hydrotherapy pools, an ice room, and color-, music- and aromatherapy saunas and steam rooms, Mulia Spa is not your typical day spa. The treatment list is traditional though and offers an indulgent selection of Balinese massages. Guests have access to the the Lounge, which encompasses a cozy library and an intimate dining room, and for evening entertainment head to ZJ’s Bar & Lounge, Nusa Dua’s only nightclub.
In the Area
Nusa Dua, an enclave of high-end beach resorts, is home to three popular surf spots — one of which is within walking distance of the Mulia. Nearby Uluwatu attracts surfers from around the globe, while Kuta is lined with boutique shops. No trip to Bali is complete without an afternoon in the village of Ubud, about an hour from Nusa Dua. You’ll find museums, boutiques and painters’ studios, as well as locally made handicrafts and unique gifts at the Pasar Seni market.
