Experience Balinese heaven
The mere mention of Bali conjures up images of a lush tropical paradise. The idyllic Indonesian island is famed for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies and pristine white beaches. With magnificent religious sites such as the cliff-side Uluwatu Temple, there’s so much to discover. It’s also a hot spot for yoga and meditation retreats.
Skirting the island, stunning coral reefs teem with sea life, making it a top destination for scuba diving. Then there’s the Balinese culture, best sampled at a gamelan percussion performance or one of the thousands of Hindu temples. To the south of the island, the beachside enclave of Nusa Dua is an exquisite resort town.
The Melia Bali Hotel
Ideally situated on the tranquil shores of Nusa Dua, the Melia Bali is a unique sanctuary of exotic beauty, comfort and relaxation. The perfect location for your dream holiday. Imagine a romantic meal in the beachfront restaurant, while enjoying spectacular views of the sun setting over the tranquil reef fringed lagoon.
By day, you’ll have over 10 hectares of awe-inspiring tropical gardens to explore. And to cool off, there’s an enormous lagoon swimming pool winding through the grounds of the hotel. The gardens are complemented by the hotel’s contemporary tropical architecture and bold interior design. All in all, the Melia Bali Hotel expresses the absolute essence of Bali.
There’s a huge variety of rooms, suites and villas available, all with patios or terraces and lavish marble bathrooms. We highly recommend the Garden Villas, set in their own private section of the resort, each with a private plunge pool. Décor is sleek and contemporary with locally inspired artwork.
With a 24-hour coffee shop, Southeast Asian and Japanese fine dining, and a Mediterranean á la carte restaurant, there’s a wide range of cuisine to tantalise your taste buds. There’s also a relaxed beachside eatery serving sizzling grills, tapas and pizza. You’ll be spoilt for choice.
Activities for all the family
From yoga lessons to water basketball and beach sports, the hotel has plenty to keep everyone occupied. There are lots of cultural activities, such as cooking classes and temple visits. There’s also a spa with 10 treatment rooms, massage gazebos by the pool, a beauty salon, and a fully equipped fitness centre. Children are looked after too, with a wide range of fun activities ranging from fish feeding to kids’ nights out.
The Melia Bali is within walking distance of Bali Collection, the main shopping centre, and an 18-hole golf course. It’s also close to the Museum Pacifica, which has a vast collection of artworks from across the Asia Pacific region.
