Nusa Dua in Bali is the last word in luxury in this Indonesian Island. Stretches of white sandy beaches along crystal clear waters of the seas makes Nusa Dua one of the most prestigious locations of luxury resorts. It is just the place to be in for a complete rejuvenation of a weary body and tired soul.
Nusa Dua in Indonesia is not only acclaimed as an exotic resort destination but also an international class conference center. Nusa Dua is the regular venue for all ASEAN (the Association of South East Asian Nations) conferences. Whether you surf in the morning, massage in the afternoon or tee off in the evening, Nusa Dua is an ethereal escapade. Even lazing in the sea beach watching the sea waves gently caressing the shores is a charming experience.
Activities in Nusa Dua
From Nusa Dua a visit to Mother Temple Besakih ï¿½ the resident deity of Bali, is almost mandatory. A full day tour to Barong Kintamani Volcano and Lakes offering views of Bali villages and paddy fields is enthralling. A walking tour to Mengwi Temple, through Bali Monkey Forest and the countryside is quite thrilling. For cycling enthusiasts, a full day downhill tour with buffet lunch will be a veritable pleasure.
The Bali Hai Lembongan Island Reef cruise in an air-conditioned cruise boat is an exhilarating feeling. And in the evening there is nothing to beat the Bali Hai sunset dinner cruise under a tropical evening sky. In the evenings enjoy ethnic Kecak, Sanghyang, Trance, Fire and Monkey dances in all its splendor and gaiety.
