A curvy pool snakes around the interior of the resort.

The Grand Mirage Resort’s huge beachfront main pool is lagoon-shaped and features islands, a swim-up bar, and several sun loungers on the large deck. (shown here is only one portion of the pool.)

Grand Mirage Resort and Thalasso – Two resorts: one with massive gardens and sea views, the other solely for families.

There are two sections to the resort, about 100m apart and accessible by golf cart along the lovely beachside path. One part has seemingly endless lawns and lagoon-shaped ponds. All types of accommodations are spacious and feature an elegant design. Most also offer genuine ocean views. The main pool has a swim-up bar, and serenity is guaranteed at the adults-only infinity pool. The other part of the resort is appropriately called Family Paradise. Uniquely designed for those with children, everything is bright and cheerful and packed with facilities for youngsters. There are five types of rooms for families, including the alluring Kids Suites and Girls Suites. Attractive all-inclusive packages include meals/drinks, water sports, and traditional performances at its own amphitheater. The beach is clean and pleasingly distant from jet skis.

Grand Mirage Resort and Thalasso – Local Transport

  • Walking & Cycling: Almost everything required is within walking distance. The main road is long, flat, and comparatively quiet, and bicycles are available for rent at the resort. A lovely beachside path passes the resort and stretches the entire length of Nusa Dua to the south. Cycling is also fun along the main roads in Nusa Dua, which start about 2km away.
  • Cars & Taxis: Driving anywhere in Bali is not recommended, but renting a car is possible – book through a local agency or at the resort. Taxis – which are reasonably frequent, cheap, and comfortable – are the best option for anywhere in southern Bali. For longer trips, charter a car with a driver. Ignore drivers hanging about the streets and organize through the resort.
  • Motorbikes: These are easy to rent at agencies along the road and useful for getting around Tanjung Benoa and Nusa Dua – less so for elsewhere in southern Bali. A popular way to reach anywhere around the region is a motorbike taxi called an ojek. Book one at a fixed rate using the downloadable apps Grab and Gojek.

Grand Mirage Resort and Thalasso – What’s Nearby?

Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars

Distances are from the main resort gate.

  • Bumbu Bali – Long-established, endearing décor, and renowned for its Balinese cuisine. Great experience. Ask about cooking classes. Less than 300m south down the road.
  • WMK Coffee & Kitchen – A new favorite. Always popular for coffee and brunch. Tasty meals, quick service, and great value. Less than 500m south.
  • Black Tom’s – Large setup, often with live music. Some tourists eat/drink here 2-3 times a day. TV sports. Ask about free transfers there and back. Barely 200m south.
  • Starbucks – Caffeine fix (and light meals) at the famous chain next to the Family Paradise section of the resort.
  • The Tree Pub & Restaurant – Unfussy café/bar serving excellent, reasonably priced meals. Friendly staff and very happy hours. About a five-minute walk south.

Nearby Shops

  • Minimarts pepper the main road but little else to excite shoppers. Most places to eat, drink, and shop at the Bali Collection shopping center in central Nusa Dua closed in 2020-21. Some had reopened by mid-2022, and more will open up later. This delightful outdoor mall is about 3km south down the main road and ideal by bicycle – especially via the beachside path. Otherwise, the free shuttle bus provided by Bali Collection may recommence and pick up passengers at the resort.

Water Sports

  • Tanjung Benoa is the water sports center. Jet-skiing, parasailing, and banana-boat rides, among others can be arranged at the resort or, more cheaply, at Bali Apollo Dive & Water Sports. Reliable, well set up, and a better value than anywhere in Nusa Dua. Find prices on the website. About 400m south of the main resort via the beach.
