“Life is magnifique” claims the glitzy Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort – and, should life be anything like a stay at the five-star hotel, we’d be inclined to agree.
Set against a backdrop of the glistening Indian Ocean, this resort has views for days and an alluring white-sand beach, the likes of which are surprisingly hard to find in Bali.
Making the most of its prime location, the Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort recently opened a glamorous new beach club, Manarai Beach House.
A welcome place for guests to let their hair down in the otherwise quiet (comparative to the rest of Bali at least) Nusa Dua, it offers two spacious pools, an open-air restaurant, a bar serving exotic cocktails, private cabanas, comfortable daybeds and crackling firepits.
A brainchild of the ISMAYA Group – also behind the likes of Blowfish, Mr. Fox and Dragonfly – it’s no surprise that Manarai puts on a great party. Elrow and Jonas Blue are among those who have performed here but the vibe is more beachside chill than the pounding house music of other Bali venues.
After dancing the night away, return to the sanctuary of the Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort and its first-class facilities.
Top of the list has to be the incredible lagoon pool, offering a jacuzzi and the elegant L’Oh Bar, offering chic loungers and a swim-up bar with submerged underwater seating. Opt for a Luxury Pool-Access Room and you’ll be able to step directly from your private terrace into the pool.
For kids, the lagoon boasts a sandy area with slides. In fact, there’s a whole host to keep little ones entertained, with the Kids’ Club offering arts, crafts, a dedicated tech area classes including baking and yoga.
Grown-up activities include sunrise yoga, cookery courses and a fully equipped fitness centre with sauna.
There’s also the tranquil So Spa, offering a range of relaxing treatments including massages, facials and scrubs.
Sounds pretty “magnifique” to us…
