NUSA DUA is where you want to be seen in Bali. Unlike the somewhat oversaturated areas of Seminyak and the slightly maddening Kuta district, Nusa Dua plays on exclusivity. There are only 20 resorts on the secluded land, all the better for you to immerse in solitude and tranquility – the main reason you’re on an island holiday anyway.
One of the most attractive resorts on Nusa Dua is INAYA Putri Bali, a five-star resort that makes you feel completely isolated despite being on one of Asia’s most popular islands. While great for couples and honeymooners, the resort is equally suitable for families armed with kids – minus the stress that’s commonly associated with family holidays.
The hotel’s Deluxe Pool Access room on the ground floor is a favorite among families because of its direct access to the communal lagoon pool through a private balcony, perfect for the kids to splash around while you read the papers. A bonus: The rooms overlook lush tropical gardens and a private verandah should the need for a fancy tea strike.
Parents can also opt for the Two-Bedroom Suites consisting of two spacious bedrooms that can fit up to four adults and two children. This category of rooms comes with personalized butler service, Club benefits, a foot bath ritual upon arrival, plush suite toiletries, a choice of pillows, and a marble bathroom with a separate deep-soaking tub and rain shower.
The hotel’s 19 exclusive villas at The Village too are excellent for some quality time if traveling in a large group. Each villa is attached to a private plunge pool that connect to a 130-meter river-styled pool, perfect if you’re willing to splurge on added privacy. While great for large parties, do note that children under 12 are not permitted to stay at the villas.
Naturally, the hotel’s three-tiered infinity pool that face the emerald waters is a highlight for kids especially with a designated children’s area for parents to keep an eye on their tots. If your kids prefer to swim in the ocean, the pristine, private shores are simply but steps away. Those sandcastles aren’t going to build themselves.
If the little ones start to get restless, the hotel’s Tamaya Kids Land program is aimed to entertain and stimulate kids ages five to 12. Daily activities are scheduled including picture-frame making, nature walks, pencil-case making, story-telling, face painting, and hair-braiding sessions. This way, parents can relax by the pool with the assurance that their kids are taken care of.
While the kids are away, parents can sneak in a booking at Inaya Dewi Spa. Ease those tired joints with the Dewi Journey Package inspired by seven Hindu goddesses and Bali’s cultural heritage. The treatment starts with a footbath ritual and reflexology, continues with a revitalizing body massage, and wraps up with a luxurious facial treatment to keep those pores unclogged.
For a lovely family dinner, Homaya Restaurant celebrates Indonesia’s complex cuisine with market-fresh ingredients and long, communal tables for social dining. Here, indigenous cooking traditions are retained while guests are taken across the archipelago by way of its diverse culinary styles – the only way to cap off a picture-perfect moment in Nusa Dua.
