As our Travel Team once again set a course for Bali, we were thrilled at receiving the news that we would be staying at one of our all-time favourite resorts – the Grand Hyatt Bali in Nusa Dua.
Planning a trip to Bali? Stay at the Grand Hyatt with our amazing deal.
A peaceful oasis far-removed from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, the resort and leisure district of Nusa Dua on Bali’s scintillating south-east coast is the perfect destination for a tranquil tropical escape. With the ideal combination of pristine coastlines, uncrowded beaches, a culturally-enriched local community and an amazing array of world-class resorts; Nusa Dua effortlessly sets the scene for a relaxing getaway.
When you’re seeking sheer Balinese luxury and indulgence by the beachfront, there are few better places to base yourself than the incredible Grand Hyatt Bali.
The Grand Hyatt Bali is comprised of 636 superbly styled guestrooms and suites ensconced within low-rise Balinese villas inspired by the island’s traditional villages. The charming villas are surrounded by serene lakes, landscaped gardens blooming with native flowers, and one of Bali’s most extensive lagoon and river-themed swimming pools.
The Bali Grand Hyatt’s breathtaking 650 metre stretch of pure beachfront is, in fact, Bali’s biggest beach and easily one of it’s most beautiful.
The five-star establishment has over 20 years of history and after a warm welcome, we were ushered to our room without delay – stopping here and there to admire the breathtaking tropical gardens along the way.
Our King Grand Room was a plush Balinese haven for the senses. Elegantly fitted with gleaming teakwood and marble furnishings sourced from central Java and boasting spacious interiors (total living area of 49-sqm); the room entails a cosy daybed enclave and a private balcony overlooking the tropical gardens or lagoon.
A luxurious batik robe and fluffy slippers perfectly complimented the lavish en-suite bathroom replete with separate glass-walled shower and bath.
We also jumped at the chance to stay in an upgraded Secret Emerald Pool View Room which contains all the comforts of a Grand Room but with the added extravagance of granting easy access to a series of private emerald Balinese swimming pools and Jacuzzi – pure paradise!
The sparkling emerald waters were a hit with guests of all ages…And provided cool refreshing refuge from the blazing Balinese sun.
As is expected with the prestigious Hyatt brand, the resort presents guests with a dynamic range of tantalising on-site dining options. We could take our pick from five restaurants and three chic bars that offer an extensive and diverse selection of international and locally-inspired cuisines.
Our mornings usually began at the charming Garden Cafe with satisfying breakfasts enjoyed amid the cooling sea breezes.
The poolside bar’s juicy fully-loaded burgers were an absolute sensation!
Serving as the resort’s signature restaurant, Pasar Senggol is a must-try Nusa Dua dining experience. Inspired by Bali’s bustling open-air fresh food markets, the unique eatery serves up a sumptuous array of authentic Indonesian and Balinese dishes.
We indulged in a mouth-watering all-you-can-eat buffet dinner featuring delights such as succulent jumbo prawns, roast suckling pig, traditional Javanese pancakes and many more tantalising morsels.
Aside from dining under the stars, part of what makes Pasar Senggol so magical is the accompanying live cultural show. We were thoroughly entertained by the non-stop celebration of Balinese history, art, song and dance.
We also sampled some satisfying Italian fare at the in-house Salsa Verde Italian Restaurant. Our three-course meal showcased the finest facets of traditional Italian cooking – from rich pasta dishes with authentic sauces, to decadent desserts like irresistible pannacotta with just the right amount of wobble.
We particularly loved the restaurant’s spectacular al fresco Salsa Bar – the panoramic rooftop bar is perfectly positioned to capture the beauty of the setting sun while sipping on sunset cocktails and mingling with fellow guests.
Not only offering plush accommodation and world-class service, the Grand Hyatt Bali is home to an incredible range of on-site facilities. Five sensational swimming pools, three flood-lit tennis courts, a nine-hole putting green, and a private beach with a plethora of water-sports activities are at your disposal.
The fully-equipped Bay Club Fitness & Health Centre also houses state-of-the-art gym facilities, an aerobics studio, glass-back squash courts, a sauna, and an inviting Balinese whirlpool.
A hit with our travelling troupe, the award-winning in-house Kriya Spa promised unrivalled indulgence and delivered in spades. The term ‘kriya’ means ritual in Sanskrit, and the spa provides treatments that draw upon the traditional Balinese healing philosophies of Hindu, Jamu and Ayurveda.
The extensive range of therapies aims to promote positive health, delay the ageing process and enhance longevity with the use of natural herbs, roots and essences. Settling in for a one-hour traditional Balinese massage is a must – our group (blissfully free of any lingering back and neck pain) highly recommends it.
There’s plenty to see and do while in Nusa Dua – feel free to immerse yourself in the retail, entertainment and dining delights of the famous Bali Collection Shopping Centre located just a minute’s walk from the resort. The home of famous designer brands, live musical performances and distinguished restaurants; Bali Collection is a premier destination to see and be seen at.
The engaging Bali Nusa Dua Theatre is also nearby – where the incredible Devdan Cultural Show takes centre stage and leave audiences spellbound with a mix of traditional song, dance and flair.
For something a little more sedate, why not relax by the poolside…Or head off to the beach to top up your tan!
Regardless of whether you’re a first-time visitor to Bali or a seasoned traveller, the Grand Hyatt Bali will not only exceed but redefine your holiday expectations.
