Bali is one of the most popular tourist des­ti­na­tions in the world. The is­land of­fers in­cred­i­ble ho­tels, restau­rants, pri­vate vil­las, spas and beau­ti­ful beaches. I of­ten visit Bali for a va­ca­tion or business trip and en­joy dif­fer­ent and new ex­pe­ri­ences when there. On my last trip, I stayed at The Chedi Sakala. This min­i­mal­ist ho­tel was so very com­fort­able and I en­joyed the ser­vice, food and the room. Four rea­sons to stay at The Chedi Sakala Bali:

NEW AC­COM­MO­DA­TION

I’m al­ways cu­ri­ous to stay at new ac­com­mo­da­tion, so when I heard that there was a new Ho­tel in Nusa Dua, I did some re­search and found The Chedi Sakala. When on a business trip last month In Bali, I de­cided to stay here. The ho­tel is lo­cated just 30 min­utes’ drive from Ngu­rah Rai In­ter­na­tional Air­port via the re­cently opened Nusa Dua toll way. The re­sort is ac­ces­si­ble to shop­ping, din­ing and the cul­tural pur­suits as­so­ci­ated with a hol­i­day in Bali. Upon ar­rival I was es­corted to the lobby which of­fers a beau­ti­ful view, es­pe­cially a semi-cir­cu­lar area in the cor­ner from which I could see a stun­ning view of the pool and the beach. A cold towel and cool fresh bev­er­age wel­comed me dur­ing check-in. Then, a friendly mem­ber of staff took me by golf cart to the ho­tel room. It was quite some dis­tance but the pool along the way was amaz­ing.

THER OOM

My room was a Chedi Deluxe Suite, very spa­cious and com­fort­able, while black and white dom­i­nated the room. Fit­ted with air-con­di­tion- ing and wooden floor­ing, the room came with free wifi, cof­fee maker, and six bot­tles of com­pli­men­tary min­eral wa­ter. My room fea­tured six ar­eas: a kitch­enette, din­ing area, a cosy liv­ing area, bal­cony area, bed­room and large bath­room area. Ameni­ties in­clude 42-inch flat-screen cable TV, lux­ury bath ameni­ties and free trop­i­cal fruit that is served upon ar­rival. My bed was so comfy, I had the best night’s sleep dur­ing my stay. Over­all, my room was very well ap­pointed, mod­ern and clean.

THE FOOD

Din­ing at The Chedi Sakala was an award-win­ning ex­pe­ri­ence from the start. Perched on the cap­ti­vat­ing sand­scape of Tan­jung Benoa beach over­look­ing the In­dian Ocean, Sakala Bali achieved in­stant recog­ni­tion for the

con­tem­po­rary French cook­ing of Chef Frédéric Boulay. The fresh­est lo­cal pro­duce and re­laxed beach am­bi­ence make this venue, open to the pub­lic, an is­land­wide favourite. Sakala Bali is my favourite restau­rant; I had a won­der­ful din­ner at this con­tem­po­rary Euro­pean fine-din­ing restau­rant. My five-course menu fea­tured foie gras, while wagyu beef was de­lec­ta­ble and pre­sented very ar­tis­ti­cally. My favourite was the choco­late plate; there were seven kind of choco­late on the plate and ev­ery one tasted per­fect. The Sakala Restau­rant is a must-try restau­rant in Tan­jung Benoa: ev­ery­thing was just per­fect and I would love to re­turn.

THE FA­CIL­ITY

The last mem­o­rable fea­ture at The Chedi Sakala Bali was the huge pool, which stretched the length of the ho­tel com­plex. This was ideal for re­lax­ation. For me, The Chedi Sakala Bali is a great place to re­lax. If you are look­ing for a lux­ury re­sort, spa­cious room, good per­son­al­ize ser­viced and good food for your hol­i­day, this is the re­sort to choose at Tan­jung Benoa, Nusa Dua.
