Bon­jour, a Sof­i­tel staffer with a warm smile said as we ar­rived at the Sof­i­tel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Re­sort. Sur­rounded by sway­ing palms, white sand beaches and invit­ing turquoise wa­ters, the much-an­tic­i­pated Sof­i­tel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Re­sort brings all the key el­e­ments of a pre­mium in­ter­na­tional beach­front re­sort to one of the world’s most sought-after hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions. One of the lat­est ad­di­tions to Bali’s list of most lux­u­ri­ous five-star re­sorts, Sof­i­tel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Re­sort of­fers lux­u­ri­ous fa­cil­i­ties and qual­ity ser­vice that re­flect the brand’s com­bi­na­tion of French el­e­gance and flair with warm Ba­li­nese hos­pi­tal­ity, rich cul­ture and fine arts. The ho­tel com­prises 415 rooms and suites in­clud­ing 17 pri­vate vil­las, 22 pres­tige suites and 376 lux­ury rooms. Stay­ing at this prop­erty with gor­geously land­scaped pools and gar­dens set against an im­mac­u­late stretch of white sand bor­der­ing the In­dian Ocean, you will in­dulge in a fine blend of French el­e­gance and unique Ba­li­nese cul­ture. Sof­i­tel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Re­sort is ideal for business, leisure or fam­ily fun. The re­sort has ev­ery­thing needed to en­sure that ev­ery stay is a mem­o­rable one. You need not go hun­gry at the re­sort. Con­cep­tu­al­ized by Blue Plates in Sin­ga­pore, the re­sort presents an eclec­tic set of din­ing op­tions with three restau­rants, two bars and a club lounge. In­spired by a “food mar­ket” din­ing con­cept, KWEE ZEEN serves Pan Asian menu in a re­laxed din­ing at­mos­phere with each ate­lier high­light­ing a dif­fer­ent cui­sine from dumplings to hot grills. This is sim­ply a must-visit restau­rant. My favourite CCC (Cut Catch Cucina) fea­tures multi of­fer­ings with a steak­house, Ital­ian Osteria and Sea Grill while Ar­ti­san high­lights clas­sic In­done­sian favourites in­clud­ing sa­tay grills. From LE BAR (lobby bar), to L’OH Pool Bar, and the CLUB N5 Beach Club lounge, you can also choose from one of the three dif­fer­ent bars of­fer­ing dis­tinc­tive views and set­tings ideal for drinks and en­ter­tain­ment. You must try Sun­day Brunch here at the re­sort, it is the talk of the is­land. After spend­ing a day by the la­goon pool, we headed to the re­sort’s So Spa. Well … a trip to the Sof­i­tel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Re­sort would not be com­plete with­out pam­per­ing your body and mind at their So Spa. As we en­tered the premises, the sound of the trick­ling wa­ter wel­comed us, and aro­mather­apy se­duced our senses. We had a very re­lax­ing Ba­li­nese mas­sage. I love the fact that in­stead of an eye pil­low, the ther­a­pist used a spe­cially de­signed cold te­abag to cover my eyes. That helped to re­move the puffi­ness I had from never-end­ing dead­lines. Dur­ing the mas­sage we felt a sense of re­lax­ation, re­vi­tal­iza­tion, re­ju­ve­na­tion and in­ner peace. It seemed like all the tired­ness was sim­ply rinsed away. Those of you who are into spa and holis­tic treat­ments would love the fact that the re­sort is not only home to So Spa but also Bali’s very first aes­thetic, well­ness and life­style clinic to open within the lush pri­vacy of a lux­ury re­sort ho­tel – Vi­etura Bali ar­ti­san of anti-ag­ing. The holis­tic treat­ments that Vi­etura of­fers are 100% non-in­va­sive and non-sur­gi­cal, em­pha­siz­ing anti-ag­ing as­pects and pro­vid­ing in­stant and long-last­ing re­sults. The aes­thetic treat­ments fo­cus on an­ti­ag­ing, skin health, fa­cial sculpt­ing and body sculpt­ing, with the lat­est trends in aes­thetic and well­ness treat­ments in­clud­ing no-pain in­stant face-lifting, bo­tox and face shap­ing, acne emer­gency res­cue, fat freez­ing and same-day slim­ming, unique state-of-the-art colonics treat­ments, med­i­cal full body detox­i­fi­ca­tion and hang­over rem­edy. All the treat­ments help to re­veal the ‘new you’, while you en­joy the lux­ury ser­vices and sur­round­ings of the Sof­i­tel Bali Nusa Dua. Now you can book a stay at the re­sort and check out as the new and bet­ter you. We saw a lot of fam­i­lies dur­ing our stay at the re­sort. We had a peak at the re­sort’s Kids Club which is packed with fun fa­cil­i­ties and ad­ven­tures. The re­sort’s kid’s club con­cept of learn­ing, ex­plor­ing, and fun is brought to life through ex­ten­sive fa­cil­i­ties com­pris­ing an out­door kids’ pool, read­ing room, nap room, video game con­soles and a host of ac­tiv­i­ties from cook­ing classes, yoga for kids and var­i­ous beach games. There were a lot of happy and smil­ing faces to be seen. With Sof­i­tel’s hall­mark In­spired Meet­ings con­cept, the re­sort is all about business too. The con­cept com­bines the lat­est con­fer­ence tech­nol­ogy with a pas­sion for ex­cel­lence. The re­sort of­fers an ar­ray of in­no­va­tive meet­ing and event fa--

cilities com­pris­ing a Grand Ball­room, a Re­treat Grand Room, four meet­ing rooms, and one board­room, fea­tur­ing state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy and ded­i­cated concierges, with names taken from tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese dances and mu­si­cal in­stru­ments that in­voke imag­i­na­tion and in­spi­ra­tion. The re­sort of­fers some of the largest meet­ings and func­tion fa­cil­i­ties in Bali, with the Grand Ball­room able to ac­com­mo­date up to 600 guests, the­atre-style. When you are plan­ning your next event or con­fer­ence, this re­sort is the ideal place.
