“Hip, modern, minimalist Nusa Dua hotel and spa with individual pavilion rooms and private infinity pools”
Each hillside pavilion is set within its own walled garden with a private swimming pool. Whether a 1-Bedroom, a Deluxe 1-Bedroom or a 2-Bedroom Pavilion, the style and layout is consistent, with ultra-minimalist clean lines that please the eye.
Sliding glass doors open into the large bedroom where there's wardrobe space for a diva and enough gadgetry to keep tech-fiends happy. Beds have mosquito nets and the hotel is regularly sprayed (we visited in rainy season and didn't see any).
Chic bathrooms with fine terrazzo flooring have twin basins and delicious aromatic hand-made products. Each has an indoor and outdoor shower as well as a bathtub, but the highlight is stepping directly into the pool from your bathroom.
Outside, the kingsize daybed is set under a pillared veranda. Here you overlook your pool, listen to the built in music system and snack on the fresh cookies provided.
The Deluxe 1-Bedroom Pavilions are larger with softer sand coloured interiors. Their rates include additional benefits: daily half-board dining or spa treatments, plus evening cocktails.
If you venture out of your room, you'll find the Faces restaurant set in a bright and airy pavilion with an open kitchen, next to the main pool. Here meals are served throughout the day.
Expect modern European and Asian cuisine using mainly organic produce. Dishes are light, full of flavour and beautifully presented - perhaps perfectly cooked cumin-seared scallops with potato mash and spicy harissa.
We were also seriously impressed with the imaginative breakfasts, which included the best selection of eggs we’d seen in some time. Try the Bale Benedict or bacon and egg burger – both superb.
Come evening, you can also relax with signature cocktails and global tapas in Tapa, a stunning raised bistro where DJs and acoustic musicians often add to the chilled-out ambience.
If you want to break out, take a taxi to Seminyak (or use the hotel's free transfer service within Nusa Dua).
