One of three beautiful pools at The Westin Resort.

The Westin Resort Nusa Dua – Compact, convenient, understated luxury, and excellent for families.

Smaller and more personable than some rival resorts nearby, The Westin offers so many types of rooms and suites. All are very comfortable, functional, and warmly decorated, and views from the floor-to-ceiling windows include the gardens, pools, or ocean (at a distance). This self-described “luxury family resort” also provides excellent accommodation options for those with children. The Westin faces a scenic, sheltered bay with immaculate sand and calm, shallow water and three pools shaped like lagoons – one even has a “waterfall” and “beach.” The kids club, with a shady playground, trampoline, and special spa, is among the finest in Nusa Dua. Unusually, it accepts children aged from a few months to 12 years in separate areas that are large and secure, indoors and outside. The Westin is also centrally located, so everything that Nusa Dua has to offer is within a short distance on foot or by bicycle.

    The Westin Resort Nusa Dua – Local Transport

    • Walking & Cycling: Walking along the beachside path is often quicker and more scenic than the main streets through Nusa Dua. The roads are flat and comparatively quiet and 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. Also, organize this through the resort.
    • Motorbikes: These are easy to rent (ask at the resort) and helpful in getting around Nusa Dua and Tanjung Benoa – less so 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 or Gojek.

    The Westin Resort Nusa Dua – What’s Nearby?

    Best Nearby Restaurants & Bars

    The best way to access the places listed below is on foot along the lovely beachside path.

    • The Laguna – The neighboring (and associated) resort is only about 100m south of The Westin. • Banyubiru has daily themed dinner buffets and an extensive a la carte menu all day. • Cornerstone Deli offers a tempting array of tasty treats. This delicatessen-cum-café also sells wine and homemade ice cream. • Kulkul Beach House provides a charming seaside setting and all-day dining. Adults-only vibe and eco-friendly focus.
