1. There are four distinct restaurants to suit all taste buds

Tamarind Mediterranean Restaurant is the hotel's signature bistro, with many tables set up on powder-soft sands. Here, you can dine on both Western and Asian favourites underneath a thatched roof, all while admiring sweeping Indian Ocean views. For fine dining, the award-winning Raja’s is at your fingertips for elevated Balinese cuisine, or opt for a laid-back evening at the international all-day diner, Wedang Jahe – perfect for when you’re craving flavours from home. Finally, a fusion of tastes from Hong Kong's bustling streets to Japanese seafood is served at Maguro Asian Bistro.

2. There are three bars to whet your whistle  

An oceanfront bar with ample shade to hide from the sun is a tropical holiday essential, and Nusa Dua Beach Hotel has the perfect tiki hut that delivers just that. Enjoy the Beachfront Bar’s minty mojitos and Cosmic Coladas or refresh at the Pool Bar with a homemade non-alcoholic cooler with lychee, lime and cane sugar. At night, pick a premium nightcap from the Lobby’s extensive back bar, featuring top-shelf spirits, après-dinner aperitifs and herbal teas – perfect for winding down after a day in the sea.  

3. Kids can go wild at Gecko Kids' Club  

No little soldier gets left behind with the resort’s extensive program of kid-friendly activities at Gecko Kids’ Club, including culturally immersive dance classes, Balinese dress-up, coconut leaf weaving and temple visits supervised by qualified staff. With a choice of morning, afternoon or half-day programs, kids aged three to 12 years can watch movies, draw, play on the beach and colour to their heart's content (or until your massage is done).  

4. There is a day spa just for adults

Nusa Dua Spa’s menu is inspired by the ancient healing rituals and natural bounty of Bali and its product partner, Sensatia, is the renewable force behind each tranquil treatment. Succumb to relaxation during a citrus massage, enrich your skin with an anti-oxidising facial or spend quality time with your partner during a couple's treatment. Beyond the massage bed, the spa offers aromatic saunas, steam rooms, a whirlpool and a 25-metre lap pool. With devoted therapists, aromatic suites and calming music, you're sure to emerge feeling renewed.  

5. Golf pros will be near the island’s best courses  

Teeing-off on championship green is some peoples’ idea of paradise and luckily the Nusa Dua Resort complex is close to the 18-hole Bali National Golf Club. Other golf courses nearby include New Kuta Golf Course, the green at Handara Golf & Resort and even Bali Beach Golf Course in Sanur. Whichever you choose to practice your putt and drive, Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa is on hand to be your (almost) caddy with transfers.

6. There is a daily schedule of classes and experiences 

Balinese culture is so rich and varied that it would be a shame not to pick up a skill or two on your island escape. Every Monday, guests can try their hand at fruit carving – creating sculptural art out of seasonal fruits and vegetables – or learn how to combine traditional herbs into Javanese beauty treatments. Tuesdays are reserved for coconut weaving classes, Fridays for Balinese dance classes and certified scuba diving lessons take place thrice weekly.  

7. There's a Palace Club Lounge for the A-list experience

Boasting a long list of alum including royalty and presidents among its past guests, Nusa Dua Beach Hotel is well acquainted with the little luxuries that take your holiday to the next level. When booking a Palace Club room, guests are privy to the exclusive benefits of the hotel’s executive lounge. Access to the lounge includes daily afternoon tea with canapes and evening cocktails served with cheese and nibbles. All this indulgence is topped off with private check-in service and leisurely late checkout.
