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
Stayed here for 4 nights in a Palace Club room. Breakfast and afternoon tea were very delicious with many options to choose from. Rooms were spacious and clean. Best perk of booking this room was that it was directly connected to the pool so I can go for a morning or evening swim easily. Sometimes the cleaning staff forgot to give more shampoo, conditioner, or hand towels after each cleaning so don’t forget to check this when you’re back in your room! Also, the shower water is not hot, just lukewarm and it uses filtered ocean water. For a hot shower or bath using tap water, you have to use the bathtub. My hair became so much softer after switching to using the bathtub water instead!
Grand old hotel with classic colonial features including fantastic gardens with ponds and ducks. Five restaurants available, food of varying standard but all pricey. The hotel staff where all charming friendly and helpful which was a plus. The swimming pools where fantastic large and crystal clear. But my big gripe was the sea from the beach knee depth all the way to the reef, no swimming or snorkelling !
The place was right on the beach the food was lovely, would definitely recommend. It was quite close to the shop and you could get a shuttle bus to the shop every hour. The swimming pool was a nice size and lots of sun beds.
My husband and I are just back from our honeymoon, the majority of which we spent in this hotel. Such a lovely relaxing stay with really friendly staff. We were upgraded to a suite when they heard it was our honeymoon which was a great start and much appreciated! We ate in 2 of the restaurants here which were nice and other restaurants nearby offer free transport which we made use of. We were always able to get a sun lounger and its nice to have the choice of the beach as its so close or use of the pools which weren't too busy during our stay. Would definitely recommend and only sad we couldn't stay longer. Hopefully this will not be our last visit!!
excellent hotel, nice gardens. beautiful pool and very kind staff. Nice clean private beach with lovely views. Restaurants were very clean and food fantastic. Our room was clean & spacious and beds were very comfortable
