hotel in the 250$ range, where should I stay?

Preference is top quality beach front.

Please assist, thanks.

Currently the only hotel my agent has given me is the Grand Hyatt.

hi lakerlove,

for that money actually you have quite a wide range. In Nusa Dua if you are a beach lover for swim in, you wouldn't be happy with grand hyatt, but if you don't mind about that this hotel is good, just renovated their lobby and some part of rooms. The area is huge. The best location for swim is in Nikko Bali at nusa dua, and Intercontinental at Jimbaran (but only the singaraja wing rooms that just renovated). For the hotels, Ritz Carlton, Karma Jimbaran, Four Season, The Oberoi.

hope it helps.

cheers,

marala

hi lakerlove,

In that case the Grand Hyatt would be perfect for you! It's awesome actually, but not so good for swim in the front of it.

cheers,

marala

i stay at the grand hyatt and swim in the beach there. the staff keep the sand clean there are lots of sun lounges and the hotel is fantastic. i have just done a review of this hotel and i have included photos, you can see the inside of a renovated room. the renovations when i stayed there in july had a minimal effect. they were doing some paving and upgrading the conference rooms. the swimming pools and the area around the beach is very relaxing.

the hotel is top quality. the advantage of this hotel is it is within a very short walking distance of the bali collection (old name galleria) the other nusa dua hotels use the shuttle bus from the shopping centre.

hi, the room i posted photos of was a refurbished room on the ground floor facing the ocean. you can get more expensive rooms but personally we are always happy in the type of room photographed. the hotel is very large it is divided up into 'villages' ie north south etc. if you want to have ocean views or be close to the beach just ask. there are also rooms which surround the 'balinese pool' this is very relaxing and pleasant. to be honest i have stayed in all of the different 'wings' but i don't mind a bit of a walk. my only preference was ground floor for my last stay as i don't like the idea of a room upstairs with a young child who could climb up on the balcony railing.

remember if you are allocated a room you are not happy with the ask to be moved. they are very accommodating.

you will be given a voucher for a free welcome drink which you can use at a number of different places. the salsa bar overlooking the ocean at sunset is ideal!

ps we take our duty free alcohol and buy coke etc from the nearby 'bali collection' shops this saves a lot of money instead of using the mini bar!

i will try and post some more photos with my hotel review today so you can see more of the hotel

sorry, forgot to mention get a taxi from the airport it is much cheaper than booking hotel transfers through your travel agent. exchange some money at the airport also the rate here is pretty good and better than you will get at nusa dua.

the money changer at bali collection giving quite good exchange rate, and if you faced the nusa dua main gate, in the right side of you, you will find the central kuta money changer, their rate is better than a hotel and bali collection rate.

note that money exchange rates anywhere in nusa dua are not as good as elsewhere. particularly low at bali collection. i never exchange money there. i travel to bali every year and stay all over bali and the rates in nusa dua have ALWAYS been lower. best places are kuta area, sanur, denpasar, and the airport is good particulary because you need some money to get started. hotel exchange rates are always amongst the lowest.

only ever use authorised money changers with no commission. shop around for the best rates and check their calculations, then count your money for yourself before you move away from the counter.
