The Novotel Nusa Dua Bali is a mid-sized hotel sequestered within the idyllic Nusa Dua planned resort community in Bali’s southern peninsular. Bali is blessed with fertile soil, abundant water, and a tropical climate. All these combine to create a lush, verdant environment for flora and fauna to flourish.

The centerpiece attraction is a two-tiered pool, situated amidst the garden courtyard.

Circumscribing the central courtyard are the rooms, which range from deluxe rooms to apartments. They are comfortable, and adequately furnished, although housekeeping could be a little more comprehensive and conscientious.

Other facilities include the spa–de rigueur in any self-respective island resort these days. Co-located within the spa building is the fitness room, which while not outstanding by any means, will suffice for a quick workout to trump the afternoon lethargy.

The Nusa Dua beach, a five-minute ride via complimentary hotel golf cart, boasts fine sand and azure blue sea, although the waves can be formidable. But standing at the union between sea and sand, dwarfed by the roaring waves and enveloped by the indigo sky, one can achieve a sense of perspective, serenity, and equanimity.
