We had a 4 night stay in this resort in summer 2012. Just got around to writing about it now, but the memories have stayed with me and will do so for some time I think.
The Nusa Dua Beach Hotel is one of the original resorts built in the Nusa Dua part of Bali. This also means it is one of the oldest and a few years back may have become a bit dated and in need of a freshening up.......well, mission pretty much accomplished. The owners of the resort are some middle eastern investment arms of an oil rich state in the middle east, and they have recently injected funds to re-do the resort. It was almost completed when we stayed there last year, so perhaps should be completed by now.
Peter S, the GM of the hotel was a very gracious host and went out of his way to make me and my family (wife + 3 kids) feel completely at home. We were upgraded to a nice one bedroom suite on the ground level and provided access to the club facilities which meant nice breakfasts, high tea snack, and happy hour drinks gratis. The facility itself boasts a few different restaurants, two swimming pools, morning yoga sessions, gym, kids playgroups, function rooms etc etc.
Rooms are large, clean, well thought out, with all the usual amenities of a 5 star resort. Bathrooms also good sized and seems like new fixtures have been added, which is always a nice touch. LCD TV's with DVD players, good linen, nice firm but not stiff mattresses, soft pillows, new towels, and many other aspects which is plainly obvious to have been recently put in place all make for a good value and a pampering type of atmosphere for people staying there.
The beach is a 1-3 minute walk from the hotel depending on which part of hotel you are staying at. Mall/resto area a 10minute walk away from hotel on main road of Nusa Dua.
Nusa Dua is located about 15minutes drive from the main Kuta strip area where alot of the action tends to happen, but we were happy to be in a place where we could just hang around all day and be content. About a 20 minute drive to/from airport depending on traffic. With traffic these days in bali, it's useful not having to go into some of the other parts of the island. whole family was in love with the resort and we did not want to leave...actually inquired about extending the stay but our airline tickets would have charged a big penalty for the change, so we decided to forgo.
All in all....not a single negative thing to say about the place. Would definitely stay there again in the future.
Depending what you plan to do at the resort, you can choose one closer or farther away from the beac...
