Set on nine hectares of tropical grounds, Nusa Dua Beach Hotel and Spa (62-361/771-210; nusaduahotel.com; doubles from US$150)—the original tenant in south Bali’s resort enclave—has been welcoming guests for the last 29 years. The hotel’s 382 guest rooms and suites have a new lease of life, courtesy of the multi-million dollar renovation, without forfeiting any of their Balinese design features—Deluxe rooms are furnished in neutral tones and local artifacts while an 80-square-meter Palace Club suite features hand-loomed fabrics. Similarly, the hotel spa—arranged around a 25-meter lap pool—retains its sense of quintessentially Balinese treatments. Its fine dining restaurant, Raja’s, serves traditional Balinese cuisine, while the Buddaya cultural theater stages live performances twice a week, offering guests the chance to see the Legong or Kecak dance.
