Built in 1983 but refreshed by a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2011, the Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa is one of Bali’s longest-running resorts, and has played host to royalty and international dignitaries. Its 382 rooms retain their Balinese heritage—as seen in the beautifully carved teak doors—but have modern conveniences like flatscreen televisions and WiFi. The spa was a pioneer among spas on the island, and still has an extensive array of water features and treatment menu that emphases traditional healing rituals. The resort complex is also home to five restaurants and four bars, offering international, Western, Balinese and Indonesian cuisines.
In the Area
The resort is located on the southern part of Bali, just a 15-minute drive from the international airport and within easy reach of many of the island’s cultural and natural attractions. Historical sites include the temple at Tanah Lot, which is especially beautiful at sunset; Klungkung Palace, once the home of the oldest Balinese kingdom; and Tenganan, one of the original Aga villages, where people still live as they did centuries ago. For more contemporary entertainment, the Bali Collection shopping and dining complex is a five-minute drive away. And for watersports enthusiasts, Tanjung Benoa offers everything from scuba diving to wake boarding.
How to Get There
This hotel is the most authentic Balinese hotel in the Nusa Dua strip. The gardens and beach settings are beautiful, calming and very clean. Care for the environment is also very important and is shown in the setting on the beach.
The staff are outstanding , very well trained , always welcoming and willing to help in any way they can. There are sufficient restaurants to choose from each with its own choice of food styles. The food is inexpensive by western standards , however the location nearby to The Bali Collection area means there are further eating and shopping opportunities. There is a shuttle bus provided.
We stayed in the Palace Club rooms which are definitely worth the extra supplement . You are treated like honoured guests, the staff are outstanding and do remember you from previous visits.
I especially liked the canapés served with evening drinks and afternoon tea both of which are complementary.
The bedrooms overlooking the gardens are just so nice with a huge bed , proper bath, shower room and plenty of space. Free WIFI is complementary are you would expect.the transfer to and from the airport took less than 30mins and can be arranged with the concierge.
The main swimming pools are very child friendly and safe . The beach is tidal but very clean, swept every morning. There are several,themed dinners with Balinese cultural dances each week which are worth seeing . All in all excellent hotel and we will be returning for a fourth time soon.
Overall, the facilities and service are really good. The room is cozy and clean yet the toiletries are quite low quality. However, the balcony outside of my room is facing the pool side so it’s really noisy when they’re having the pool party until late at night. Aside from that, the beach by the resort is amazingly beautiful.
Nice hotel located on the beach with plenty of loungers to choice from. We enjoyed eating at the beach front restaurant, excellent food and service.
Large pool again with plenty of loungers and a nice pool bar
I came to take a break after a rather exhausting tour to the North of Bali. Nusa Dua Beach Hotel made up for everything, the beach was great as well as the property - perfect Holiday Feeling. I higly recommend the Hotel also in Terms of Price for value!
The hotel is lovely the grounds and gardens stunning with a white sandy beach and warm seas and staff are excellent. But it is in the luxury area of Bali where there are many similar luxury hotels and the restaurants prices reflect this. There is a modern complex close by with many restaurants and shops but all purpose built. If you are happy to just eat drink and sunbathe you will be very content but we were disappointed that there were no local places to walk to just hotel after hotel. We took a couple of tours which were excellent and felt we were seeing a little of the real Bali but wouldn't return to the Nusa Dua area as we felt we were rather out on a limb.
