Sanur or Nusa Dua?

hi i going to bali with 2 of my girl friends this dec. we are staying 3 nights contiki seminyak, and intercon jimbaran bay. we are having trouble deciding between hyatt in sanur or nusa dua? We are definately staying at contiki first and intercon last so the hyatt is somewhere in teh middle, and its posing a bit of travel problem (a big of a zig zag ending up furthest away from teh airport). Any suggestions and ideas of how long it takes to get between sanur and jimbaran, and nusa dua to jimbaran - or opinions on whcih hyatt resort is better? cheers

Hi i am a regular at both hyatts as well as stay at many other places. both hyatts are different. in terms of which is in the nicer area to stay as far as being more 'balinese' good restaurants and shops and a great village atmosphere the bali hyatt at sanur wins. the grand hyatt is newer very beautiful and a large hotel. the room size is also larger. the bali hyatt is 'older' but has the most beautiful gardens and relaxed atmosphere. you can walk to a number of shops and restaurants. nusa dua is a purpose built tourist area but you are more 'isolated' from the local villages, restaurants and shops etc and it is more expensive. there is the 'bali collection' a group of shops and restaurants walking distance from the grand hyatt but once again more expensive and really tailor made for tourists.

the good thing is no matter which hyatt you choose you can use the free hotel shuttle bus to go between the two. it takes about 30 minutes and the trip is scenic and enjoyable.

don't worry about time between your 3 hotels. it is not far between any of them. seminyak and jimbaran are only approx 30 min from sanur. the trip is short and inexpensive just use the blue bird taxis to get you around.

just check on the contiki as they are changing management in november and are undergoing changes and renovations.

here is a link to the article
