The Westin Resort Nusa Dua: Your Perfect Family Getaway In Bali

Getting There

Relaxation Lounge (Medium)The Nusa Dua beach is home to the finest five-star resorts in Bali. The Westin Resort Nusa Dua is set right on this beautiful white sandy beach waterfront, offering its guests a stunning location for that perfect relaxing beach holiday.

The water sport-filled Tanjung Benoa beach is Bali’s most exciting peninsula for marine-based activities and only few minutes away by car from The Westin Resort Nusa Dua.

From Bali new international airport, which connects the UAE and GCC directly through regional airlines, the hotel is a mere 20 to 30 minutes by car.

About The Hotel

Spa Bale (Medium)You will be welcomed at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua in the traditional Balinese way with ladies in local costumes performing a welcome dance as you get out of the car, offering you flowers from the island and greeting you in Bahasa language.

The most impressive feature of the Westin Resort Nusa Dua lobby is certainly its remarkably high ceiling in natural wood, imitating the style of an Asian pagoda and contributing to setting the scene from your arrival.

The hotel stretches across from the main entrance up to the beach, with a main building hosting the reception and other facilities and wings located on each side for the rooms. In the middle of the resort, tropical gardens, water ponds with fishes and several pools – including a salt water pool – complete the holiday picture.

A new wing with modern rooms, an Italian restaurant and its own swimming pool was added to the resort 3 years ago when the international convention center (part of the hotel facilities) hosted the Miss World contest and later on the APEC summit.

The Rooms

Each of the 433 newly refurbished guestrooms and suites feature the acclaimed Heavenly® Bed, famous to the luxury hotel chain, to restore your mind and body with a restful night’s sleep.

The contemporary guestrooms were all designed with touches of nature and traditional Balinese accents to reflect the local Premium Room - Kingsize bed (Medium)surroundings and maintain a tropical feel. Guest rooms average 38 sq. meters in size and all rooms and suites feel spacious with
a balcony providing either an ocean, pool or garden view.

The hotel also features apartment type rooms or family suites that will be highly appreciated by families or groups. These feature two bedrooms each with its own en-suite bathroom and a shared living room in the middle. A children’s play area is even available within this room category.

During our visit at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali, we stayed in the new wing with a modern and spacious room featuring a large bathroom with central bathtub and separate rain shower, as well as, a small terrace and separate dressing room.
