The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua

Indulge in a luxurious retreat at The Laguna Resort located in the exclusive Nusa Dua area. As one of the luxury hotels of the world, The Laguna Resort is arguably one of the best hotels in Nusa Dua. Nestled on one of Bali’s most spectacular beaches overlooking the glittering Indian Ocean, The Laguna is built around 5,000 square metres of beautifully landscaped lagoon swimming pools. Each room, suite and private villa is elegantly appointed providing the utmost in style, privacy and comfort. This makes it ideal for honeymoons. Steps from the resort, and fringed by palm trees, a dazzling white sand beach awaits with several cabanas for shade and beachside wellness treatments. Whilst it would be easy to enjoy the stunning ocean views for the duration of your stay, and nothing else, The Laguna also provides a myriad of excursions and activities. With activities ranging from an evocative journey with an expert chef on a visit to Kedonganan Fish Market followed by a Balinese cooking class, to an array of water sports and dolphin tours, to relaxing treatments at the serene Lagoon Spa, there is truly something for everyone.  And for children aged 4-12, the Children’s Learning Centre at The Laguna’s sister property, The St. Regis Bali Resort is the perfect environment for children to have fun whilst learning about Bali’s culture. With elements of art, music, dance and literature designed to both stimulate and entertain, half and full-day programs are available to suit your needs.

With such a concerted approach to elevating the experience of adults and children alike, this beautiful resort has unsurprisingly been the recipient of countless national and international awards for its exceptional hospitality, spa, and overall approach to environmental sustainability. However, The Laguna Resort and Spa is also renowned for its award winning restaurants which are undisputedly some of the best in Nusa Dua. Banyubiru, overlooking the turquoise blue lagoon and The Laguna’s Hindu temple features pan-Asian and International cuisine with live stations and themed buffets. And for a beachfront dining experience, Arwana offers unparalleled coastal cuisine with fresh seafood.

Sample Bali Holiday Itinerary

Day 1

Indulge in a sumptuous breakfast at Banyubiru as you prepare for your first full day in Bali. Bordering a beautiful white sandy beach, spend the first day soaking up Nusa Dua’s white sand beaches. Bali’s location near to the equator means that the island has an average year-round temperature of 26-27°C and average highs of 33°C in the peak season. For a light lunch and divine cocktails enjoy the delights of Kulkul with a range of lights bites from tuna tataki rolls to healthy salads, and of course Indonesian staples such as nasi goreng. There are also lots of child-friendly options available too.

Retire to your room for a quick power nap as you adjust to the new time zone before diving into one of seven pools at The Laguna. There is one main swimming pool, which is surrounded by sun loungers and hammocks and offers a full pool service. But children may also enjoy the two “sandy pools,” which imitate the comfort and feel of a beach.

Take a late afternoon stroll through the exotic gardens before dinner. At Banyubiru dinner buffets take place every evening from 6pm to 11pm. Banyubiru’s talented chefs present pan-Asian and international fare that spans the world, from Japanese sushi, to delectable Italian food, tasty Indian delights and more. The sheer variety and diversity makes Banyubiru perfect for travellers with children. Every Wednesday and Sunday, diners can also enjoy a traditional Balinese dance performance during dinner after the blessing ceremony.

Day 2 

Enjoy a second gourmet breakfast at the resort before exploring Ubud located approximately two hours away. With taxis and private drivers on hand, there are a variety of ways to organise a trip in Bali’s cultural epicentre. Depending on the number of people in your party, the interests, and the occasion there are plenty of attractions and experiences on offer. If you are after an adventure, try your hand at river rafting along the Ayung River or the Campuhan ridge walk through rice fields and the most gorgeous hillside vista in the region. For fun, visit Ubud’s monkey forest. Besides watching playful monkeys swinging through canopies, lazing along pathways or pinching bananas, the site offers magical walks along paved pathways through leafy forests and ancient temples. For culture and history, the Tegalang Rice fields, Luwak coffee plantation and Royal Palace are unmissable. Just outside of Ubud, but equally impressive are the Tegenungan Waterfall and Pura Tirta Empul. For over a thousand years, Balinese Hindu worshipers have been drawn to Pura Tirta Empul (Holy Water Temple), whose sacred springs are said to have been created by the God Indra and possess curative properties. This tradition still continues almost unchanged, and today, aside from worshipers, tourists from all over the world also come to bathe in its refreshing blessed water.

 

Should you find yourself walking through Ubud’s main high street searching for a sublime authentic lunch spot there are two extremely popular warungs that we would recommend. The Fair Warung Bale based on a unique model worldwide centred on the principle of self-sufficiency. The restaurant prides itself in reinvesting 100% of its profits into the local community. The restaurants small size and limited seating means that we always recommend booking ahead. Across the street, Melting Wok serves flavourful Asian fusion cuisine. As with many of the restaurants and warungs in the centre of the design and layout of restaurants is undoubtedly important due to the tight spaces. However, here you never feel like you’re on top of other diners.

After a full day of exploring return to The Laguna for another dinner, or order room service as a treat.

Day 3 

After breakfast, spend the morning on the beach trying out some of the water sports and water based activities at the resort. In the afternoon, we recommend indulging in a few hours of pure and utter relaxation at the Lagoon Spa. The Lagoon Spa is inspired by the Seven Pillars of wellbeing – life, balance, harmony, beauty, vitality, aqua, nature and nutrition. Blending intricate local rituals with effortless traditional approaches the Spa provides a serene retreat for mind, body and soul. If you are travelling with children there are plenty of activities on offer at The Children’s Learning Centre meaning you can spend a few hours of adults only time knowing that the children are well looked after. The Children’s Learning Centre prides itself on being a cultural beacon for Bali that provides a compelling program for children aged 4 to 12. With lunch provided and activities changing daily, you can completely relax and unwind in perfect bliss.

After pampering your body, treat your taste buds to a delightful a la carte meal at Arwana. One of the best beachfront dining options in Nusa Dua, Arwana offers some of the finest seafood on the island, with chefs selecting a fresh variety from the market each morning. With dishes of baked scallops, poached black cod, and signature lobster thermidor to name a few, savour a range of exquisite seafood delights.

Day 4

Dedicate the majority of your fourth day in Bali to shopping. The Bali Collection in the main shopping hub located within the resort town of Nusa Dua. This spacious shopping complex houses several fashion boutiques, art and craft galleries, accessories and jewellery shops and also provides live entertainment guaranteed to make your shopping experience fun and exciting.

Enjoy a quick lunch at one of the many restaurants in and around the Bali Collection before heading to Uluwatu Temple for the sunset. Uluwatu Temple, also called Luwur Temple, sits on a 70-metre-high cliff protruding above Indonesian Ocean. Because of its unique location, visitors to the temple have to take a long stone stairway to reach it. There are hundreds of monkeys roaming along the path outside the temple. And although the monkeys look tame, some visitors find them a nuisance as they often grab food off a visitor’s hand and snatch visitors’ belongings. As with all locations with enviable sunset views, it can also be quite busy too so we do not recommend this particular activity for travellers with small children.
