It will come as no surprise to anyone who has stayed at Awarta Nusa Dua Resort & Villas that this bijou Bali property has been named World’s Best Boutique Hotel by the U.K.-based Boutique Hotel Awards.
With just 14 private villa residences set amid lush, frangipani-studded grounds in the Nusa Dua area, Awarta beat out more than 300 nominees from over 80 countries at the recent awards ceremony in London.
It also took home the award for World’s Best Culinary Excellence, a tribute to the property’s two outstanding restaurants, Ru Yi (for Chinese fine dining) and The Long Table.
Excellent service and a luxurious spa contributed to Awarta’s top spot, but the reviewer also raved about the beautiful fusion of traditional Balinese and Chinese architecture, bamboo-lined passage ways, plunge pools with waterfall features, and curated vegetation that includes four century-old bonsai trees.
