Southern Bali Coast...is there a hidden gem hotel and beach for recharging? Something for surfers, sun worshippers, swimmers, running and gym addicts, spa lovers and kids, too?
The Rainbow Tourism Concierge found one in Nusa Dua that just happens to be in the IGLTA and HRC Equality family, too. Rainbow Tourism video visit.
Gays, lesbians and gay families will easily find all the ingredients needed for a recharging Bali holiday at the brand new Courtyard Marriott Bali. One reason is that Nusa Dua has beautiful weather and blonde beaches, which are clean and suitable for sun bathers who are looking not only for a great tan but serenity. (You can't say that about a lot of the Bali beaches in other well-known resort areas).
The Courtyard has its own lagoon-size pool, but for those who want to lie on a white sandy beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, the hotel's beach club is just the answer. They take you there in 3 minutes by shuttle, just behind the shopping area called Bali Collection.
Just 15 m from the shoreline there are two tiny islands, hence the region's name. At low tide, you can reach both by foot and explore for a few minutes each before getting back to the club. Unlike some other hotels, Courtyard offers complimentary sun loungers and umbrellas along with dedicated beach facilities such as showers, restaurant and bar with sea view for sipping on a cocktail and relaxing
Peninsula Beach is also great for surfing, and you can rent a board on site. A short stroll from the sand and there are cafes selling the two favorite beach drinks – fresh young coconut and cold beer. When ready for fine dining or poolside meals, head back to your Marriott.
If there for romantic escape, try their treatment package for couples such as the 90-min exotic massage or age-defying collagen facial.
This brand new, fresh-concept and simply decorated (not traditional Balinese) hotel is a charming little hidden gem. It is also a spa destination that welcome everyone, from children to couples. There are 12 uniquely designed treatments including traditional balinese massage, bamboo massage and reflexology, as well as a fun children's treatment package using edible ingredients.
