The huge modern and lush complex for hotels Nusa Dua in Bali was constructed by the government under then President Soeharto. He decided to plan and construct an exclusive luxury hotel complex in the southern part of the island. It has security check points at its entrance gates; which makes it an ideal location for important international conventions. Of course it does offer many facilities catering exclusively to guests.
I made a short movie when touring it watch in on YouTube
To reach the lobby one has to pass an impressive stone relief that reminds me of Borobudur Temple in Central Java, this one is modern with Balinese touches. At the entrance I was greeted by a Bamboo Gamelan musician (typical orchestra and instruments). The sound immediately did strike a chord and brought me back to the first time I visited Bali. This typical tune was one of the first impressions a guest had arriving at a hotel in Bali many years ago and this memory, this particular sound stayed with me and reminds me of Bali. Today, not many hotels do employ artists like this any longer, sadly enough.
The lobby also in this hotel is immense without being heavy. The roof construction is a masterpiece and the theme is nautical with sails as accents. It is a long building with many different areas of interest for the guests. Here one can find the check-in counter and other administrative services. Straight ahead from the entrance is the bar or lounge area and towering over everything are corridors and access bridges to the rooms.
This building with services and guest rooms sits in the middle of a lush tropical garden including a fish pond and a glorious pools, one of them salt water. Also this property has access to the sand beach and the ocean that can be quite calm and family friendly and sometimes rough and dangerous, depending on the tide, the wind and weather.
If you stay here you will get special services like a lounge to rest complete with showers to ease the waiting time if you arrive early morning or depart late at night and your room is not available yet or any more.
In the back of the lobby or the first thing you see and pass when entering the property of The Westin is the Bali International Convention Centre with facilities like meeting rooms and more accommodation for bigger and smaller conferences. When organizing a gathering with a huge number of people it is important to have easy access to the property, capability to keep the participants separate from other tourists and at the same time give them plenty of amenities when they have their free time. You get all of this here at the Hotels Nusa Dua in Bali The Westin.
