Situated on the sizzling Nusa Dua Peninsular in southern Bali, just over 20-minutes’ drive from Denpasar International Airport, Conrad Bali is a five-star oasis that ranks among the finest luxury accommodation establishments on the famed ‘Island of the Gods’ and the wider world at large. Serving as one of the finest luxury brands of the renowned Hilton Worldwide Group, the Conrad name is synonymous with lavish accommodation, unquestionable style and first-class service. The Bali branch of the Conrad family is certainly upholding the lofty standards set by the international brand. The resort has won a plethora of awards including a top ranking on TripAdvisor, a 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, and was also named both Indonesia’s Leading Resort and Leading Spa Resort at the 2014 World Travel Awards.
Conrad Bali comes with a set of pretty high expectations, and as we wandered through the lobby after our arrival, we realised that we were about to experience something pretty special. To view this offer in a new window, click here.
After checking-in without a fuss, we were shown to our rooms – little slices of Balinese-inspired paradise! Our Deluxe Garden Room was simply beautiful and was adorned with gleaming marble floors and charming dark timber furnishings.
These rooms feature either a king-size bed or twin bedding, private balcony or terrace, and a gorgeous marble bathroom stocked with premium amenities from leading brands such as Shanghai Tang, Tara Smith, or the iconic Aromatherapy Associates. This room category offers enchanting views of the surrounding tropical gardens; however, Deluxe Resort Room upgrades are also available and grant breathtaking partial ocean views. Guests choosing this room type will also receive a bonus USD$100 resort credit to really get the VIP treatment. If you’ve brought the little ones away on a tropical holiday, the resort also offers plush accommodation in a range of Deluxe Family Rooms catering for two adults and up to three kids. There’s plenty of space for the whole family to unwind with two interconnecting bedrooms containing a king bed and twin singles. Those looking to embrace the very best of Conrad Bali are sure to be tempted to upgrade to one of these spectacular Conrad Club Suites boasting an incredible 110sqm of space, as well as a separate living room with laidback lounge and dedicated dining area.
Conrad Club Suites are located in a private wing away from the main resort and also come with an array of exclusive perks including an adults-only swimming pool and nightly cocktails between 5:00pm and 7:00pm. To view this offer in a new window, click here.
As expected with a five-star resort of this calibre, the on-site dining options at Conrad Bali are simply stunning.
There are four restaurants to choose from, in addition to a trendy poolside bar dispensing thirst-quenching drinks and all-day snacks.
We tucked into a delicious international buffet breakfast each morning of our stay, complete with live cooking stations featuring eggs done your way, fresh waffles and paper-thin crepes.
We were also treated to a handful of exotic dining experiences including a ‘Taste of Bali’ buffet dinner complete with live cultural entertainment, a five-course tasting menu dinner at Eight Degrees South, and a traditional Japanese feast at Rin Restaurant.
The resort’s signature afternoon tea experience is a definite must-try and features an irresistible selection of sweet treats and savoury delights.
Conrad Bali is home to a sensational selection of on-site facilities to keep any type of guest blissfully entertained. A 24-hour fitness centre, retail village, fully equipped business centre and more lie in wait.
We particularly loved lounging beside the lagoon-style swimming pool (one of the biggest in Bali!), and indulged in some signature pampering at the acclaimed in-house Jiwa Spa.
We can highly recommend an oceanfront massage at the Beach Bale, the traditional Bamboo Massage and the super-luxe flower bath.
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 by climbing aboard the resort’s free daily shuttle bus. 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. Enjoy fantastic savings on tickets, as well as return transfers between the resort and the theatre are also included.
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, Conrad Bali is a getaway spot that will redefine your definition of tropical luxury. For a true five-star experience, this place is tough to top! To view this offer in a new window, click here.
‘Superb service’ Five out of five stars – Reviewed 12 April 2015 “If you are looking for pure luxury then I cannot recommend the Conrad Bali any higher. Stay in the Conrad Suites which will include daily sumptuous breakfasts plus afternoon tea and evening cocktails and finger food. Unless you want large meals this will fill you up on any given day. There are acres of pools, the beach, the day spa….all excellent. Eight Degrees South is a great restaurant for seafood and a romantic dinner. The Conrad Bali staff are so friendly that it defies description.” ‘Phenomenal Place to Relax!’ Five out of five stars – Reviewed 9 April 2015 “We were on our way to see the Komodo Dragons on Komodo Island and picked this hotel in Bali because we HiltonHonors members and had a good experience at the Conrad in Hong Kong last year. No disappointment here. The place is immaculate. The breakfast is great. And they offer a Kids Club during the day that our children absolutely loved. Everyone from the bellmen to security guards are so nice. We will definitely stay here the next time we come to Bali.” ‘Family Luxury’ Five out of five stars – Reviewed 25 March 2015 “Our family of four stayed at Conrad for Easter 2015 this amazing hotel has a wide range offerings, and I was amazed by the size of the resort and it was like a village itself offering ultimate luxury for whatever need you should have. Special thank you to the staff at the Kids club who arranged a wonderful birthday party for our son. If you go to Bali, I highly recommend Conrad and you will love the lagoon pool that is definitely the biggest pool I ever been in, and very family friendly.”
