Bali’s Nusa Dua is home to some of the most luxurious five star properties on the island. The area is predominantly made up of beachfront resorts and I recently spent three wonderful days at the Westin Nusa Dua. Offering both an intimate couples haven and a friendly family holiday experience this resort has so much on offer to ensure guests have a memorable time.

The resort’s lobby is one of the most extravagant, yet welcoming in Bali. As guests arrive they’re greeted with a cool towel, welcome drink and musicians playing traditional Balinese music. As is expected with a five star hotel staff are always on hand to assist with guest queries and holiday plans. The resort is large, but not overwhelming. My room was a few minutes walk from the main pool and beach but I felt like part of the Westin family during my stay.

The Room

The wow factor of all rooms at the Westin Nusa Dua are their Heavenly Beds. I can only imagine it’s comparable to sleeping within a fluffy cloud. To assist guests in getting the perfect nights sleep, complimentary lavender oil is waiting on the night stand.

No amenity has been forgotten in the bathroom fit for a queen. Guests can choose to either take a shower or relax in the free standing bathtub. You can pack and store your luggage out of site in the huge closet area.

My spacious Premium Room included a desk and sitting area which complimented the design. A cozy glass front balcony overlooked the lush and well manicured gardens. For those looking for a family package holiday the Westin Nusa Dua also offers family suites and two bedroom suites that will cater for those travelling with children.


The Grounds

Located on a beautiful stretch of sand with calm waters, the Westin Nusa Dua provides cabanas, beach chairs and lounges for their guests to relax in the sun. One of the wonderful things about Nusa Dua is its exclusivity. There is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying a resort holiday and the Westin Nusa Dua creates the perfect environment to do this.

Their three pools provide ample opportunity for all guests to enjoy their stay. I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing by the main pool, taking a dip each time it got too hot. The gardens are immaculate and the palm trees complete that paradise vacation feeling.

Activities and Wellness

The Westin brand prides themselves on incorporating wellness into their guests experiences. Their mantra is one that resonates with me ‘Wellness Through Travel’. At Westin hotels across the globe you’ll find top of the range workout studios and in room work out options.

In creating a sense of community Westin hotels also offer daily running sessions with a trainer, exploring the local area along with options such as yoga and meditation. Apart from using the workout studio I also took part in a morning yoga class. While on holiday this really is such a rewarding way to start the day. With approximately five wellness sessions a day, six days a week, the Westin Nusa Dua should be your go to Bali wellness retreat.

Also on offer for guests are a range of daily fun activities. Aquacise classes, kayaking, tennis lessons and Balinese dancing are just a few of what’s in store for your stay. I opted for the cycling tour which lasted around an hour and took me out of the resort, along the beach, to a nearby blow hole and even through some local villages. The staff who look after the activities are great fun, always smiling and joking with the guests.

Of course a family resort wouldn’t be complete without a kids club. The range of actives on offer for the little ones will keep them active and entertained for hours. Meaning more relaxation time for the parents!

A number of on site restaurants ensure guests can vary their dining choices and cuisines. Guests can sample options from the Westin’s eat well menu during breakfast at Seasonal Tastes. Fresh juices, superfood smoothies and healthy options are all available. I was very impressed by the amount of options available for breakfast. As someone who has a weakness for Indian cuisine I was very happy to see a tandoor for breakfast! The Westin Nusa Dua also has onsite a tapas bar, beachfront dining and a Japanese restaurant.

For an amazing family experience I can highly recommend The Westin’s Family Sunday Brunch at Prego Restuarant. You can read more about it via a post I did for Our3kidsvtheworld right here.

The verdict

I had been to The Westin Nusa Dua prior to this stay for pre wedding drinks when my sister’s best friend got married here. I’d originally presumed it was just a resort for couples and those looking for a honeymoon in Bali. However, after staying here it became evident that the resort does offer both a romantic escape and a family friendly atmosphere. It was probably a good experiment staying here on my own as I could definitely see myself coming back with my husband and my family. Don’t be put off by Nusa Dua’s secluded location if you want to get out and about. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to and from Kuta a number of times a day. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I hope you get the opportunity to stay here as well.

My stay was hosted by The Westin Nusa Dua. As always, the opinions are my own.

One thought

  1. Looks like such an amazing hotel. We love Westin hotels and this is the reason why – so much to offer. The yoga, pool and bike riding would have to be the stand outs here. It’s on the list!
