The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Nusa Dua
After I went for a morning jog though the rice paddies next to Furama, Miriam and I packed up our stuff on Thursday and drove two hours south to Nusa Dua. Richa arrived shortly after us, and we headed downstairs to the beachside bar for celebratory cocktails. Miriam was starting to feel better by now and we were all happy to relax.
5 days in Bali was not on the original trip plan.
I'd been to Bali probably 3 times while living in Singapore, and each time I found it overrated, grubby, and generally less appealing than places like Phuket and Ko Samui. However, it's rainy season in Phuket, and getting to Ko Samui is a pain (Bangkok Airways monopoly), so our Singapore …
Bali – this tropical island in the Indonesian archipelego is our wild card at the end of our journey. While the itinerary for the past 5 months had been loosely planned, we left this last month up for grabs. I had hoped to finish with Vietnam, the children were lobbying for a repeat visit to Thailand and Andy was remaining uncommitted – …
... appealing, it also was quite reminiscent of a construction zone. I had a basic lunch, which seemingly didn't kill me and kicked back with my book. Well that was until someone decided to start using an angle grinder in the middle of the "restaurant" which I took as my queue to exit.
Once again, the touts were out in great force. I somewhat felt like I looked like a walking money machine, and if they could hassle and cajole me enough ...
So after a flight filled with screaming children, we finally were in Bali. And it was raining, no kidding. But luckily it was just a quick shower and then the sun came out! Incredible first day in Bali. I had a bit of a stiff neck, so Dan walked the beach southwards past the other resorts. Quite pretty. Then back to the Conrad where we went about ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa Nusa Dua
Just returned from 9 days at the Sheraton. My wife and I had a lagoon access room - ground floor so you can jump into the pool - with beautiful views facing towards the main pool - the opposite side of the corridor rooms would not have been as good for the views, but probably even quieter.
Stayed at the Sheraton for over two weeks. As a resident of Hawaii, we have our pick of many fine resorts. This hotel would compete with the best of them. The staff is a cut above and the hotel complex is pure luxury and relaxation. Best part of it was the fact that we would have paid three times more in USA and received less. What a value! I was told that the meals at the hotel where a little pricey. I strongly disagree. Excellent quality and presentation. Try the hibachi or private bale for a rare treat. Great location to see the island. Restaurants and spas as far away as Kuta will provide transportation from hotel, giving you endless selection. Best of class in Nusa Dua area.
We have stayed in the Sheraton Laguna Nusa Dua for 8 days and were captured by the stunning landscaping and the excellent service. Before we commenced on our journey we studied reviews on several websites (also on the tripadvisor) to select the hotel we deemed most suitable for us. Here I want to add a small thank you for all the people who take the time to write reviews as it was very helpful in the selection process - and we did indeed get rewarded with a dream holiday.
Myself and my girlfriend visited in February 2005 for Chinese New Year. The staff were, without exception, extremely helpful and welcoming.
Wonderful and romantic
The perfect place for a Honey moon. Excellent room decor,we actually stayed in a suite with a huge bathroom.Many facilities and excursions to visit Bali by private taxi available at the Hotel.
Sheraton takes the lead over Westin (next door)
We just spent two nights at the Westin (next door) and two nights at the Sheraton. Sheraton gives you a better return for your dollar by far. The staff and rooms are excellent. They offer 24 hour butler service with complementary freshly brewed coffee any time of the day. Fresh fruit (oranges, apples, etc) are also available in the lobby (free of charge) all day/night. Nusa Dua in general has very good security. Made for a great, relaxing, enjoybable stay.
Fabulous resort hotel
Was there Oct 2003 for 4 nights. Great resort hotel - nice rooms, easy access to the beach, nice spa, wonderful pool network, fabulous rock pools at low tide, within 10 mins walk of a local cafe complex. Great holiday for families with kids. Wanted to return this year, but cancelled my plans due to the the recent bomb in Jakarta.
The best pools in Asia
Great hotel in a great location: 30 minutes by taxi from the airport, 20 minutes from the famous Uluwatu temple.
The huge pools were fantastic, the beach nearby, the rooms clean and the staff friendly and helpfull.
Restaurants prices were quite high unfortunately.
My husband and I visited Sheraton Laguna Nusa Dua for our Honeymoon in June 2004.
We stayed at this hotel in 2001. We have travelled to every continent, and usually stay at top hotels. This one knocked our socks off!!! The staff were wonderful, the room was gorgeous, food was great (the absolute best breakfast buffet I have literally EVER experienced...anywhere!).
