Bali “the love par­adise” awaits wel­com­ing you new­ly­weds. It ’s time for you to es­cape and re­lax as a cou­ple, and no city does chic and ro­man­tic bet­ter than Bali. And if you want an ex­otic lux­ury that will beat your imag­i­na­tion, Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa is the per­fect place for you.Built in 1983, Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa has wel­comed kings, queens, pres­i­dents and other dig­ni­taries over the years. The amaz­ingly beau­ti­ful land­scape of Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa cre­ates a spe­cial ro­man­tic at­mos­phere, with the white sands of Nusa Dua Beach, three out­door pools, and a choice of world-class restau­rants to com­plete your love story. Upon check-in, the ho­tel staff es­corted us to our room. What struck me the most about our room was the la­goon, the clear blue wa­ter was so invit­ing. Our room, dec­o­rated with Ba­li­nese fur­nish­ings, had a spa­cious ter­race and di­rect ac­cess to the la­goon with views of the trop­i­cal gar­dens. You will never go hun­gry stay­ing at the re­sort. There is a wide range of restau­rants that will take you on culi­nary de­lights from around the world. For au­then­tic Ba­li­nese cui­sine, try Raja’s restau­rant, take a culi­nary tour of Asia’s most flavour­ful dishes at the Maguro Asian Bistro. For some­thing sim­ple, the fresh wood oven baked piz­zas at San­dro’s Pizze­ria is highly rec­om­mended. If you are lucky enough to stay at the Re­sort on a Mon­day or Wed­nes­day, I truly rec­om­mend you to join a din­ing and cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence, Bu­daya Cul­tural The­atre of­fers live dance per­for­mances. Our per­sonal favourite is the Tamarind Restau­rant. There are a lot of rea­sons why we love this restau­rant; Firstly the lo­ca­tion, Tamarind is by the beach­front, which means that we can en­joy our lunch with the front view of the ocean. We also love how unique the restau­rant looks as it is built en­tirely of bam­boo, over twofloor lev­els, the Kitchen and Lounge is an all day at­trac­tion on Nusa Dua beach, so you can­not miss it. But the main rea­son why we love this restau­rant is the food. Tamarind serves lo­cal flavours with an in­ter­na­tional twist. The menu of­fers a di­verse se­lec­tion of bistro favourites and con­tem­po­rary Asian dishes, the choices of food are wide, we loved to dine here, and we tried many dishes. I must say they all looked sim­ply de­li­cious. Hello, sun­shine! I said to my­self as I opened the door to our pri­vate ter­race. Who doesn’t like to wake up to warmth on our skin right af­ter a good night sleep? We had a great time yes­ter­day ex­plor­ing the ho­tel, and we slept like ba­bies. Af­ter I did my short stretch rou­tine, I took a bath and along with my part­ner, we took a stroll on the beach side. Through­out our

stay, it felt like those days when you don’t feel like do­ing any­thing ex­cept lay­ing on the comfy bed, and my favourite spot was one of those comfy chairs on the beach. Just lay­ing around, soak­ing in the sun and en­joy­ing the scenery. There is only one more thing that would make our stay at Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa com­plete, that was a trip to the spa. And that was what we did pre­cisely. We had a tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese Mas­sage, the mas­sage started on my back and shoul­der, and with each stroke, I felt more re­laxed. The ther­a­pist used tra­di­tional oil mixed with spices, herbs, and flow­ers that made my skin feel smooth. It was so sooth­ing that I al­most fell asleep. 90-min­utes passed by like a sec­ond, and sud­denly the treat­ment was over. We felt so re­laxed af­ter the mas­sage, all the tired­ness and body ache was gone, and we felt com­pletely re­freshed, and slightly hun­gry af­ter­ward. Be­cause we stayed in Place Club room, we were en­ti­tled to the Palace Club priv­i­leges, one of which is ac­cess to the evening cock­tail at the Palace Club Lounge. So, it was time for an evening cock­tail at the Lounge; we en­joyed our cham­pagne and wine while soak­ing in the serene sur­round­ing and we saw the gooses and ducks play­ing in the pond. Dur­ing our stay here at Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa, we saw a lot of cou­ples get mar­ried, and some were hav­ing their pre wed­ding photo shoot. Hav­ing stayed at this re­sort, I can un­der­stand why many cou­ples like to take their photos at this beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion. And for those of you who are plan­ning a wed­ding, Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa is graced with some of the most beau­ti­ful gar­dens and a white sandy beach for un­for­get­table wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions. Choose from the Tem­ple Gar­den ad­ja­cent to an au­then­tic Ba­li­nese tem­ple, the beach­front wed­ding bale or the breath-tak­ing jetty over­look­ing the ocean to make your wed­ding sim­ply per­fect. For those who love lo­cal tra­di­tions, let Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa take you on an en­chant­ing jour­ney into the heart of Bali, where the mul­ti­cul­tural faces of the trop­i­cal is­land merge into a mag­i­cal and mem­o­rable mon­tage that you will al­ways re­mem­ber. We truly en­joyed the time we spent at Nusa Dua Beach Ho­tel & Spa. It was sim­ply the time when we just stopped to smell the roses.
