A little about the resort
The Republic of Indonesia attracts touristspristine landscapes, imposing volcanoes Gunung-Batur, Kintamini, Gunung-Agung, tropical forests, endless beaches and ancient temples. Our fellow citizens not so long ago appreciated the benefits of recreation in Bali, and therefore gradually the number of Russian tourists on the coast of the island is growing every year.
Nusa Dua is an elite resort stretchingalong the coast with mangrove groves. The city has the most luxurious hotels and the best beaches on the island. In addition, the resort has a promenade with cafes, boutiques, restaurants, water centers called Galleria.
To the north of the town stretches the sand strip of Tanjung-Benoa - a former fishing village, on the territory of which a chain of five- and four-star hotels is built.
In Nusa-Dua, there are significant tides andebbs. In the sea they bathe till 9 am or after 15:00. In the daytime, the ocean leaves, exposing the beaches, at such a time the depth is about half a meter. Deeper water remains only in the lagoons.
In Nusa Dua, public transport is representedonly minibuses. But they do not enter the main gates of the city, so the beaches can only be reached on foot or by taxi, there are also shuttles that run along the coast every half hour.
Attractions in the resort
Dusa-Nua is an elite tourist protecteda city with limited access. This oasis in Bali was built for whimsical and demanding tourists. The best five-star hotels in the city boast extensive territories, beautiful swimming pools, tennis courts and their own beaches. But at the same time in Dusa Noi there are no sights: no markets, no traditional Balinese villages, no tents with delicacies. The real life of the local population can be seen only outside the artificial luxury of the city. Almost all the complexes here offer equipment for sea sports, as this is the main local entertainment.
To see something interesting, you shouldgo to travel around the island. In Bali, there are enough interesting places worthy of attention: the monkey forest, the Tanakh-Lot temple, the Bali-Barat park, the Batubulan village, the island's botanical garden, rice terraces, the marine park and the safari park, the Besakiy temple, the Taman Ayun temple, etc. .
In Bali, treatment programs forimprove blood circulation, reduce the manifestations of cellulite, destroy the deposits of fat, moisturize the skin. Most of the procedures are based on the use of algae, sea mud and salts. Also for medicinal purposes, use a variety of baths (with sea water, algae, hydromassage, flower, etc.).
Mercure Bali Nusa Dua: reviews
Speaking of the hotel, I want to refer to the reviewstourists who had time to visit it. How good is Mercure Bali Nusa Dua (Indonesia)? Nusa Dua is an excellent elite resort with good hotels, one of which is our complex. The hotel is on the second line and is surrounded by its own garden. Distance to the coast is about 1000 meters. According to the guests, the hotel has a fine shuttle service to its own beach, so there is no problem to reach the coast. Walk to the shore for about 20 minutes. The hotel's beach is very clean and well maintained, it is enclosed by plantations from bushes. The hotel staff issues towels. On the coast there are sunbeds, and instead of umbrellas - trees, in the shade of which it is very good to relax. Ebb on the coast does not spoil the whole picture, you can swim. On the beach wanders a lot of pesky traders offering their goods.
The hotel does not have a rental bike orcars, but on the way to the shore there is an institution where you can rent a bike. But the machine can be ordered through the Internet. She will be driven to the hotel and then taken away. The cost of renting a car is about 70 000 rupees per day.
The territory of the complex is rather big and very green and well-groomed. The hull is not on the road, but slightly off the beaten track, which makes street noise do not reach the guests.
In Mercure Bali Nusa Dua 4 * (Bali) there are twopool (for adults and children) with overflow. At night, the water is turned off, so the noise from it does not interfere with sleeping. The pools are beautiful and clean, near the recreation area with sun loungers and umbrellas.
The hotel has a good spa center, where you can visit the massage sessions, and a large gym with excellent training equipment.
Hotel Mercure Bali Nusa Dua (Room Descriptiongiven in the article) is not new, but inside it is maintained in good condition. According to tourists, the rooms are good and clean. In the apartments on the fourth floor there are no balconies, on all other floors they are available. If you do not like the proposed number, then at the reception you will try to help in this matter, replacing it with another. The hotel staff is very friendly and tries to please their guests. Rooms are cleaned and towels are changed daily. In case of detection of breakdowns of equipment in the apartment, it is necessary to inform the attendants at the reception desk, as a rule, such questions are resolved quickly enough. In the rooms for guests there are slippers and bathrobes, which are periodically forgotten to change during cleaning. Daily in the room is left on a bottle (300 ml) of free water for each guest. It, certainly, does not suffice, but nevertheless such attention is pleasant.
General impression of the complex
I want to pay special attention to food.According to holidaymakers, the restaurant's menu in the hotel is quite acceptable, here they prepare excellent dishes, but you need to be prepared for the fact that local food is very acute. Even if you want to dine in another place and do not like too spicy seasonings, then try to choose something from European dishes. Although local food is also very tasty, especially seafood. Eating in nearby cafes, like in other places in the city, is not cheap. In general, the food in Bali is quite expensive compared to Thailand. From the hotel to the shopping center, shuttle buses run free, where you can always get there and back.
In general, Nusa Dua is a very quiet resort forcompared to other cities in Bali. There are no noisy discos and night shows. The main entertainment can include sea entertainment (surfing, diving) and sightseeing trips around the island. In terms of attractions the city is very poor, they are simply not there. But all over the island there are enough interesting places that are definitely worth a look. The hotel always has a representative of the tourist operator, who will be able to give you information about trips. On the street there are many points where guides actively offer excursions. However, experienced tourists do not recommend using their services. Through the Internet you can find a personal guide who will travel with you on the chosen route. This trip is most interesting, because you are not tied to a group and anywhere you can be as long as you want.
It is convenient to travel around the city by taxi,the cost of travel is not high, especially if you order a car with a counter. From the airport to the hotel you can get by yourself. But during the departure you can use the free shuttle service.
The bulk of tourists in Bali are Asians.Therefore, all hotels are focused on them. Russian can not be found so often. The same situation is in the Mercure Bali Nusa Dua, in which the rest are mainly Chinese.
Instead of an afterword
Summing up the conversation, I want to note that,according to tourists, Mercure Bali Nusa Dua 4 * - an excellent place for a budget holiday. The cost for hotel services is much lower than in similar resort complexes. But at the same time, at an acceptable price, guests get quite acceptable rooms, good food and rest on the complex's own beach.
