St. Regis Hotel in Bali.

The opulent St. Regis features a massive lagoon-style pool with direct access from some villas, a huge swim-up bar, and lots of natural shade.

St. Regis – Five-star excellence with opulent villas facing a flawless beach.

This vast resort offers excellent amenities and Balinese touches, such as gamelan players in the lobby. The main saltwater lagoon-style pool is large, and the extensive gardens are full of coconut palms. Located on one of Bali’s longest and loveliest beaches, all villas feature an idyllic seafront location. Tranquil, private, and secluded behind walls and foliage, the villas feature ultra-modern appliances and furnishings, as well as plunge pools and thatched gazebos. The stunning suites in a building facing the sea feature ornate furnishings, walk-in closets, and sunken bathtubs. The kids club offers more culturally engaging activities than most resorts. The St. Regis sits just outside the gated complex of Nusa Dua but is still within walking distance of the golf course and affordable shops and cafés.

St. Regis – The Location

  • Area: Faces the magnificent Geger Beach. It’s not as isolated as other resorts that are also outside Nusa Dua; walkable to a few facilities, and often quicker via the beach.
  • Address: Kawasan Pariwisata, Nusa Dua, Blok Lot S6, Nusa Dua. Along Jalan Raya Nusa Dua Selatan, the main road between Nusa Dua and Bukit Peninsula to the south. About 800m south of the Southern Gate of Nusa Dua, a gated complex of 4 and 5-star resorts, and one of the most popular tourist regions in southern Bali.
  • How to Get There: The only way to/from the airport is by metered taxi or chartered car with a driver. This takes about 20 minutes (13 km via the tollway), depending on traffic.
  • Handy to: Golf course.

St. Regis – The Basics

  • Guests: Caters to all types of travelers – from large families to honeymooners.
  • Kids Club: The Children’s Learning Center is for those aged from 4 to 12. It offers a better-than-average range of activities and facilities, including lessons in Indonesian dance, language, cooking, and music.
  • Beach: Postcard-perfect, with white sand and a path linking the resort with the rest of Nusa Dua. The beach is virtually private because no public comes this far south, but there is not much shade.
  • Views: Suites face the sea and offer lovely views; villas feature direct beach frontage but are secluded behind walls.
  • Kitchen: Larger villas feature fully-equipped kitchens, but these are designed for (and likely to be used by) butlers.
  • Private Pools/Jacuzzis: All villas and some suites feature private plunge pools.
  • Extras: Shuttle bus services to Nusa Dua, including Bali Collection mall.
  • Parking: Plenty of free and secure spots, but think long and hard before driving anywhere in Bali.
  • How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.
  • Phone: +62 (0)361 847 8111
  • Email: Send a message through the resort website.

  • Smoking Rooms: Check with management about smoking policies, which are stricter here than at most resorts.
  • Best Room: The Grand Astor Presidential Suite is on the top floor for maximum views. Massive and spread out over 2 levels, featuring unrivaled extras like chandeliers, marble flooring, a grand piano, and a private infinity pool and jacuzzi.
  • For Families: Many suites and villas have 2 bedrooms. Ask the management, which is very receptive to any configuration of rooms and beds.

St. Regis – Local Transport

  • Walking & Cycling: The comparative isolation ensures that guests will probably need to walk a lot to facilities nearby. Cycling around Nusa Dua is pleasant, especially along the beachside path, but less so around the hilly roads south of the resort. Ask the reception about bike rentals.
  • Public Transport: In lieu of any public transport or shuttle buses around Bali, the Kura-Kura Bus company links Nusa Dua with Ubud and the rest of southern Bali, but schedules are convoluted and routes confusing.
  • Cars, Motorbikes, & Taxis: To go anywhere within southern Bali, metered taxis are abundant, cheap, and comfortable. For longer distances, charter a car with a driver for a negotiable fare. Driving a car is not recommended anywhere in Bali; however, motorbikes are a fun and easy way to get around Nusa Dua and neighboring Tanjung Benoa, but not elsewhere in southern Bali. All transport options can be arranged at the resort.
  • Local Shuttle Buses: Free shuttle buses link major hotels in Nusa Dua with the Bali Collection mall (see below). This is a great way to reach other resorts, beaches, and facilities in Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa.
