We are Americans living in Europe. Due to high prices of flights out of Zurich, we are looking at a "package" deal to Bali in April, rather than going independently. We have narrowed hotel choices to the Intercontinental and the Nusa Dua Resort. I have been reading so-so reviews especially on the Nusa Dua Resort. We are looking for a nice beach - we like to snorkel and swim. Also, does anyone know, is the IC directly on the beach? Are there restaurants and shopping within walking distance? We like to lay by the pool and beach during the day, go out for dinner and walk around the shopping and beach area at night. Is this what I would find near the IC? Any comments would be appreciated.
