Nusa Dua is the best option - epicurean is

talking nonsense re kids... The Kuta Legan experience is one of hippies, grey dirty beaches, very suspevt sewage control in the ocean and wall to wall hawkers,.

As sf_drkeith said "We wished we had stayed there the last week too because it was easy and cheap to take a cab over to Jimbaran & Kuta".

The number of times I have been languishing in Kuta/Tuban/Legian thinking WHY did I do this. Usually the choices involved surfing kids, partying teenagers etc.

You can take cheap cabs to party or to enjoy a sunset or two..

As far as the accommodation goes, just make sure you get the best you can afford.

No, Nusa Dua is AN option, and you are entitled to your opinion, as am I.

I do not stay in Legian/Kuta, prefering Seminyak which seems to be missing a hippy population, but that is beside the point.

As you started a new 'string' I am not sure what the initial question was, but if it related to kids, I might have said that Nusa Dua during school holidays can be a bit of a nightmare if you are looking for peace and quiet. I can say this with some experience after 20 years of staying in the Nusa Dua hotels.

Hawkers are just part of Bali, and I do not find this onerous, but then again, each to their own.

I really don't think that you can lump Seminyak into the same area as Kuta/ Tuban/ Legian. (especially Tuban and Kuta they are poles apart from Seminyak as social environments!)

If you do not like the so called hippies, beaches and the hawkers it's easy, don't go to Bali.
