Hotel Nikko Bali, Benoa Beach
Hotel Nikko is a part of The Grand Aston Bali Beach Resort. It has been a top-notch hotel in Tanjung Benoa Peninsula and a great one when you want to get away from the crowds of tourists. This hotel lets you create an exclusive and personalized experience with friends, partners, and family.
When visiting the place, you’ll be greeted with a spacious lobby rich with Balinese art style while served with Japanese hospitality which makes you want to come back every time. Hotel Nikko has around 188 rooms and suites designed to inspire elegance and harmonized with nature. The service is always excellent which makes you want to go back every time you visit Bali. What’s great about Hotel Nikko is it offers many all-inclusive packages and discounts that you can find on its website.
Note: Our favorite suite is the Oceanfront Rooftop Suite accompanied by a king-size bed and rooftop balcony that let you enjoy the majestic Indian Ocean view. Here, you may feel elegance and tranquility when recharging your body before and after activities. If you’re going with a family, you better choose Family Suite and get one king-size bed with bunk beds. It’s rather spacious and comfortable but you still experience the traditional Balinese architecture.
Samabe Bali Suite & Villa
Nusa Dua has many luxurious and elegant resorts and villas, but what makes Samabe Bali different is the white-sand Bali's southeastern beaches that make the blue ocean looks magical. Samabe Bali also offers the ultimate privilege of Luxury Bali All-Inclusive where you’ll get a 24-hour butler service, special welcome amenities, the full gamut of premium meals and world-class beverages, endless entertainment, and spa treatments. These are created with the purpose to make your travel to Bali becomes a highlight in your life.
Samabe Bali is a great getaway for honeymoons, family, and friends! Bringing your big group of friends to stay here is perfect since they’re accompanied by 42 luxurious and contemporary aesthetic villas.
Note: The beaches are not direct access from the resort, you need to go down to small steps to be able to explore the white-sand beaches. What makes it worth staying in this resort is the direct view of the Indian Ocean when you wake up and the touch of fresh nature that keeps the weather cool. Our experience in this resort is 8/10 as it was close to other attraction destinations we want to visit and you can still feel the exclusivity from the crowds since most tourists are staying in Canggu and Uluwatu.
The Laguna Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua
The Laguna is part of Marriott and a famous 5-star destination for your travel getaway in Nusa Dua. Same to Samabe Bali, The Laguna is located in Bali's southmost white-sand beaches. What we love about Laguna is it has direct access to the beaches and there are many water sports activities served by the resort that you can try! It has many small pools to shoot a picture and videos without worrying about others taken on pictures.
Our first experience in The Laguna is amazing and we’re in awe with the lobby interior which has a bamboo leaves kind of lamp hanging on top with a dim light that makes it romantic yet aesthetically pleasing. We’re staying at Guess Room with 1 king-size bed that has a lagoon view and easy access to the Lagoon. The room is spacious, elegant, and luxurious, with a white flowery aesthetic. It makes you comfortable what we love about staying here is the great service and delicious variant of foods every morning.
Note: What we love about here is the seven lagoon-shaped swimming pools being shoot from above by drone. This is a great piece for video making in Bali and they have easy access to restaurants and bars so you don’t have to worry about looking for high-quality and healthy foods since there are six restaurants to try. If you’re booking the all-inclusive package (you can choose the package range from 2 days) then they will give you a free daily spa treatment!
Melia Bali Resort
Another 5-star luxury resort we recommend Luxotic guests try is Melia Bali Resort. Melia Resort Collection is the best summer escape route for luxe travelers. They have direct access to the beach which is perfect for water sports activities and kids-friendly spots. Melia Bali Resort is facilitated amazingly with gardens and swimming pools, the resort is perfect for family and group vacation stays because of the spacious rooms and interior it offers!
Staying in Melia is a very strategic location that makes it easy for you to explore southeast Bali with shopping, food adventures, nature exploration, and cultural and spiritual learning. When we stay here, we get 25% off our stay since we’re a member of Melia Collections. If you’re staying here, try the All-Inclusive service where your activities are already planned and included in the price so you only need to relax and prepare for the day.
Note: The restaurants are great in this resort! They have two best restaurants you should try Sorrento Mediterranean Restaurant and El Patio Restaurant. We try the YHI Spa where we try we are treated to traditional spa rituals for the mind and relaxation of the body. This is a worth-try spa at the end of two days before leaving to feel relaxed after long activities exploring Bali. They have an amazing guide for family night activities and Balinese cultural exploration visiting many temples around Nusa Dua. If you need a car to rent along with the guide, you can come to the reservation and they will give you numbers to choose based on your Bali exploration destinations!
With these luxury resorts in Bali, you don’t have to think much about the food, quality of accommodation and amenities, or even relaxing activities, from yoga to just lying in the jacuzzi or swimming pool. Some of the options above are located near beaches, so you don’t have to pay extra to enjoy Bali's southeastern beaches while sipping your favorite drinks in the pool bar.
