Relaxing Nusa Dua Cliff Hotels; with Far Views

Nusa Dua cliff hotels are the next destination after having visited the luxury complex and its gentle and wide yellow sand beach. I had spent quite some time within the lavish compound and wanted to see what is happening to the outside, the part of this Bali peninsula that sits on top of steep cliffs and very few small bits and pieces of beach down below. 

I started by driving around the superb golf course along Jalan Nusa Dua Selatan toward the famous temple Uluwatu. The St. Regis Bali Resort and The Mulia Hotel are just outside the Bali National Golf Club, still along the yellow and shallow Nusa Dua Beach. There are also some restaurants and a big one for groups. 

Then pretty soon, one drives uphill, through fairly dry and rough greenery; these are the lime stone cliffs that raise out of the ocean. Of course, the view from here is magnificent, even though we are far from the edge. Up here more hotel holders decided to develop a luxury retreat.  

Extraordinary and Operating Nusa Dua Cliff Hotels

  • The Ritz Carlton 
  • Samabe Bali Suites & Villas
  • Ulu Segara Luxury Suites & Villas 
  • The Shanty Resdience Nusa Dua 
  • Asmara heavenly Residence Nusa Dua 
  • Banyan Tree Ungasan

and many more


Up here there are plenty of building sites too; many hotel owners decide that owning a Nusa Dua cliff hotel is a better or maybe more dramatic position to satisfy discerning guests coming to Bali. 

More Stately Hotels to Come

While I was contemplating this idea and trying to figure out who was building the street got worse and worse and also steeper and steeper. All of a sudden I looked up what compared to a dry river bed with big boulders in the middle. Few cars still ventured down and only one Mercedes ventured up before me. Since he made it, I decided I will give it a try too, although my rental was not the same class of quality, quite the opposite.


I don’t know what pushed me to move forward. Maybe a sense of adventure that I still have in me regardless my age; or perhaps the way back looked as scary from up in the middle of a rough natural road. Well… long and dauanting story short; I made it to the top and was back on a regular road again. 

I turned into a little street to go and have a look at the Pantai Gunung Payung. I drove by a very new golf course still under construction. Some of the greens had some players on them already. A bit further down I found a little commercial center with a temple and some kiosks selling snacks and drinks. I enjoyed young coconut jus served still in the fruit.


There is a small beach all the way on the bottom of the cliff and about half way down there is an amphitheater under construction. It will probably be used to present the typical Balinese Ketcak Dance performed at sunset with the ocean as a back drop. It will be amazing!


In a few years I want to drive this scenic route again with the expectation that it is restored to a beautiful street and all the dirt piles turned into luxurious Nusa Dua cliff hotels with outstanding service and plenty of activities for their guests.
