A wide view of a meandering pool surrounded by palm trees and other flower plants.

The Laguna is a family-friendly luxury beachside resort with seven gorgeous pools, some with sandy areas, islands with trees, and one for children.

The Laguna – Faultless luxury among vast tropical gardens in a superb location.

The enormous, beautiful grounds allow for a wide variety of rooms, suites, and villas superbly furnished with subtle Balinese touches. The accommodations (some newly renovated) face the lotus-filled lagoons (after which the resort is named), and some are angled toward the sea. Many at ground level have direct access to one of seven pools – a couple large enough to feature ‘islands,’ ‘waterfalls,’ and ‘beaches.’ The actual beach out front is immaculately groomed. Plenty of family activities are offered, such as tennis, yoga, and water sports, and for the youngsters, there’s a kids club, children’s pool, and games room. The resort is perfectly located within a short stroll of all that Nusa Dua has to offer and access to the numerous facilities at the adjacent Westin resort.

Laguna – The Location

  • Area: Faces a glorious beach and is convenient for shops, cafés, and other facilities and attractions.
  • Address: Kawasan Pariwisata Nusa Dua Lot N2. Access is along the main road through Nusa Dua, a gated complex of luxury resorts in southern Bali.
  • How to Get There: The only way to/from the airport is by metered taxi or a chartered car with a driver. Depending on traffic, it takes about 20 minutes (12km via the tollway).
  • Handy to: Bali Collection mall. Café/bars at The Bay Bali. Museum Pasifika. Headland with temples and views.

Laguna – The Basics

  • Guests: Less of a family vibe than most rival resorts nearby. Children are welcome, but many guests are couples of all ages.
  • Kids Club: The Westin Family Kids Club is in the neighboring (and associated) Westin resort, 100m north via the beachside path. There is also babysitting for children up to four years old in a separate area. Large and secure, indoors and outside, this kids club is one of Bali’s finest.
  • Beach: Perfect beach: wide, spotlessly clean, immaculately raked, and lined with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and gazebos.
  • Views: Mostly of the gardens, ponds, pools, and/or lawns. Some rooms are angled towards the beach but promised ‘sea views’ may disappoint.
  • Kitchen: All villas feature a decent kitchenette.
  • Private Pools/Jacuzzis: The three categories of villas have a private pool.
  • Parking: Some free and secure spots, but think long and hard before driving anywhere in Bali.
  • How to Book: will have the best rates.
  • Phone: +62 (0)361 771 327

  • For Families: Many rooms and suites have connecting doors and two single beds, so families can easily book adjoining rooms. Some villas have two bedrooms, a kitchenette, and a substantial private pool.

Laguna – Local Transport

  • Walking & Cycling: It’s often quicker – and certainly more scenic – to walk along the beachside path than the main streets through Nusa Dua. These streets are flat and comparatively quiet and are ideal for cycling. Ask reception about renting a bike.
  • Cars & Taxis: Driving anywhere in Bali is not recommended, but renting a car is possible and should be arranged through the resort. Metered taxis are abundant, cheap, comfortable, and the best option for anywhere in southern Bali. For longer trips, charter a car with a driver through the resort.
  • Motorbikes: Easy to rent (ask at the resort) and useful for getting around Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa – less so for elsewhere in southern Bali. A popular mode of transport is a motorbike taxi called an ojek. Book one at a fixed rate using the downloadable apps Grab and Gojek

Laguna – What’s Nearby?

Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars

All places listed below are best accessed on foot along the lovely beachside path.

  • The two neighboring resorts – The Westin (100m north) and Meliã (200m south) – provide several tempting options and are easily accessible via the beachside path.
  • At the Bali Collection mall, 600m south via the beach or road, are:
    Bebek Tepi Sawah Restaurant – Pleasant outdoor setting. Specializes in roast duck, but other options are available.
    Bebek Bengil Dirty Duck Diner – Shady, breezy, and comfortable seating. Famous for crispy roast duck, but other options are available (primarily Indonesian).
    Nusa Restaurant – Impressive menu with some ‘Western fusion’ options. Not as expensive as imagined and has great service. Colorful beanbags along the path. Also, a pool for guests.
  • Several simple and inexpensive cafés along the access path to the northern headland in central Nusa Dua, about 300m south of the resort via the beachside path.

Nearby Shops

  • Sadly, most places to eat, drink, and shop at the Bali Collection shopping mall in central Nusa Dua closed in 2020-21. Some had reopened by mid-2022, and more will open up later. This delightful outdoor shopping center is 600m south of the resort via the main road – follow the signs. (The free shuttle bus, once provided by Bali Collection, may recommence and pick up passengers at the resort.)

Nearby Attractions

  • Museum Pasifika – Impressive museum within the resort. Definitely worth visiting for the vast selection of arts and crafts from across Asia and the Pacific region.
