Asia Dreams - - ELEGANT ESCAPES -

Artis­tic flair, cul­ture and el­e­gance are all ev­i­dent from the mo­ment you draw up at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Re­sort. Along the drive­way, the ter­raced gar­den with its wa­ter seep­ing through the bricks takes its in­spi­ra­tion from Bali's renowned rice fields, while the im­pres­sive stat­ues out­side the lobby are es­pe­cially eye-catch­ing. In­side, there are paint­ings, wood carv­ings and lines of cop­per bells as you head to­wards the im­pres­sive cir­cu­lar open-air lobby, which it­self has Cir­cle of Life carv­ings all around the ceil­ing.

The ex­quis­ite ar­chi­tec­ture and dé­cor show a dis­tinct ap­pre­ci­a­tion of art, es­pe­cially Ba­li­nese, while the spi­ralling stair­case gives an im­pres­sion of the French Re­nais­sance and Baroque eras. All of this mag­nif­i­cent el­e­gance is per­fectly framed by the sun shin­ing brightly on the re­sort's lush gar­dens and the sparkling In­dian Ocean be­yond.
