Why Stay in Nusa Dua
Often overlooked by travelers, Nusa Dua is an excellent Bali neighborhood to stay in.
While it may not be as hip as Seminyak or as happening as Kuta, Nusa Dua has its own charms. It is mostly known as the home to Bali’s famed five-star resorts which promise untold luxury and relaxation. But beyond that. Nusa Dua is great for beach lovers, those looking for an active holiday, or anyone who wants a slice of peace and relaxation.
Geger beach, with its warm waters and white sand, is a must-visit for any beach lover. Water sports lovers can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and other water activities at the beaches in Nusa Dua. Want to get out of the sun for a bit? The famed Bali Collection shopping mall is a shopper’s haven which features a mix of international and Balinese brands.
When the sun sets, enjoy a cocktail (or two… or three!) at one of the beachside or resort bars. You’ll also find a plethora of dining options within the resort complexes, and can indulge in a wide range of cuisine.
While accommodations in Nusa Dua are generally quite high-end, there are some affordable villas with a mid-range price tag. But if you’re ready for a splurge, you can’t go wrong with a luxury villa in Nusa Dua!
