... been when I throw plans put the window and just do stuff. I am so glad. Kristi suggested we come here. The hotel itself is beautiful. Shortly after checking in, I am already out laying the pool getting some sun. I really do like it here and can't wait to go out and see the island over the next few days. When we arrive we find out that yesterday was a big holiday here. ...
... pictures before heading back to Beachwalk mall.
A few days ago, I remember coming across a sign which provides free transfer from the mall to Bali Collection. As we have researched, Bali Collection is a shopping mall. This immediately forms the image of mega air-conditioned shopping centre that my friend and I have always fond of. We originally wanted to take the free shuttle bus from Beachwalk Mall to Bali Collection. As we checked with the timing, ...
... a long walk down. We saw our first wild monkey here. To get back up from the beach the stairs were built inside a rock, nice and snug. We then went to Uluwatu Temple which is filled with monkeys that have figured out that if they steal stuff they'll get food. The view from the top was so pretty. At one point we had to walk through monkeys that surrounded us on every side. I of course chose this moment to touch a fat monkeys tail which he made known that ...
... would pay for their ****. They were actually quite annoying, needing to say "no thanks" every 10 seconds. I suppose it is important to remind myself at this point that I really am in a third world country for all intents and purposes. Whilst great effort has been gone to dress up the tourist locations, you don't have to scratch too deep to get some insight into the real Indonesia. It is also something to think about when the average wage here ...
... a day later it seemed to have worked. We didn't do much for the rest of the day apart from sit by the pool, swim, read and fall to sleep occasionally. The two Melbourne girls, who we now knew were Sky and Hope, joined us around 15:00 for a chat - they had been away from the hotel most of the day 'fly fishing', which in Kuta involves hanging on for dear life to an inflatable which is pulled ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Nikko Bali Nusa Dua
Wonderful vacation that we will never forget!!!
Tommy at pool bar is wonderful, he is great employee.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation that we will never forget!!!. We felt very welcome here. All staf were very friendly and nice. The best customer service I have ever encountered in my life. We would tell all our friends how great nikko bali and the staff. ( Ms. Shelley Humphrey # 3401, 2 - 9 July 2006)
My husband and I had 4 nights at the Nikko in Bali, and let me tell you...4 nights is not enough time!!!! We chose to stay at the Nikko since it was not in the tourist/shopping area (trying to avoid staying where the Kuta bombings had been occuring in the past.) Honestly, i had some reservations on going to a country that was having terrorist attacks, but my husband made a valid point - would we avoid ever going to New York again since there was the World Trade Center bombing? I have to say, I don't feel scared to go to New York. But, i still wanted to take precautions in Bali. So we stayed at the Nikko, it's about 30 minutes from Kuta on a private beach and security at the entrance of the hotel (they check the cars for bombs before any car can enter). The view of the ocean from the lobby is absolutely breathtaking! The weather was great during the time we were there. The pizza at the poolside restaurant is SO YUMMY! The staff at the hotel was very attentive and pleasant. The room was nice and clean (the bed was HUGE - I think it was 2 queen beds stuck together) We spent our days as such: an hour at the breakfast buffett, then having an hour massage at the spa, then spending a couple of hours at the pool, then lunch poolside, then showering/changing to head out to Kuta for dinner, shopping and then 2 more hours of massage (at 8 American dollars an hour for full body, and $6 for an hour of reflexology, we could NOT resist!). By the time we were done with the massages (usually around midnight or 1am), all the other shops were closed (they close by 10pm, the bars stay open much later, but we never went to any of the bars/pubs - again, i was nervous about the bombings). Keep in mind that you lose an hour a day for travel to/from Kuta (half hour each way) This was our routine for all of the days except for the day we took our excursion! i HIGHLY recomend doing the white water rafting!!!! It was VERY fun, and shows you a different side of Indonesia. You see the beautiful, green jungle (I felt like i was on a Disneyland ride because it seemed so perfectly beautiful - only thing missing was the safety mechanisms!). The white water rafting was quite an adventure - lots of bumps and near flips. You also have to look out for the LOW bridges (lean waaaaaaay back, otherwise you're head will get hit!) and low hanging trees that will whip you as you fly by. We paid $30 each for this excursion and it includes transportation to/from (pick up was 8:30am, drop off at 4:30pm - long day), equipment, guide, buffet lunch. BEWARE: at the end of the rafting you have to walk back up to the top of the mountain...up these HUGE rock steps that are carved into the mountain side, and there must have been hundreds and hundreds of steps! I'm talking MAJOR STAIR MASTER (on a good note, helps your legs and butt look fabulous when done!) I recommend purchasing the excursions from the street vendors, not the hotel (hotel was about $25 more). LOOK OUT FOR: money changers on the streets who will try to rip you off while exchanging your money!!!! We encountered 4 in a row who tried to trick us. You will give them your money, they will count out the Rupiah, then they will stack it back up for you, while "palming" some of the money without you seeing. Of course my husband would recount the Rupiah before leaving the table, and there would be much less then what they orginally counted! Since they were then caught, they would then say they are exchanging at a different rate then what is on the board. At that point we would take back our own money and leave for the next one. (good thing was that they never tried to keep you from taking back your money) ALSO LOOK OUT FOR: money changers who have calculators that are rigged to calculate wrong! One money changer used his calculator and I thought that the numbers looked awfully lower then should be. So when i took another calculator, he freaked out, and i saw why! TIP: bring your own calculator. All in all, the vacation was great! If it weren't for my fear of the bombings, i would have liked to stay in a hotel in Kuta because it was more central to the restaurants and shopping and cheap massages! If you are looking to stay away from the hub bub, then Nikko is great. VERY private beach and quite, relaxing hotel, isolated in it's own space. My husband's opinion is that he wants to stay somewhere away from the busy areas, with the option to drive there when he wants. That is exactly what we had!!
Stayed for 9 nights. Due to it being the off-season we got an upgrade to an ocean view room (but I would probably pay extra and go to the pool room if I went back again) Service is 5 star so no complaints about that.
When my parents an I went to Bali in July 2003, I had no idea that we were going to stay in Nikko. But as we arrived, I could see the ocean right from where I got out of the car. As I went to the lobby, the view of the Indian Ocean was just breathtaking. I have never seen such a landscape. What's even more fascinating was that the room is huge, they used wood flooring instead of carpet, the bathroom (I think) is covered with marbles, the bed and sheets (oh.. the bed) are comfortable and soft, the beds are twins but in a full size. What suprises me the most is the beach; bluish turquoise and white sand. I decided to sit on the sand for 3 hours to enjoy the sound of waves and colors of the beach. What more can you expect from a resort.
A lovely 7night stay Feb10-Feb17. Best reserved for special celebrations as this is priced above the average resort.
In may 05 I visited the Nikko Bali,the holiday was a joy from the minute we landed at the airport! When we arrived at the airport we were greeted with neclaces made from fresh flowers and greeters dressed in traditional balonise outfits. In the coach on the way to the hotel the rep told us a lot about bali and its culture it was veryinteresting.
Situated in the South East corner of Bali, the Nikko Bali occupies an exclusive and secluded spot all on its own. No other hotel neighbours it - and from the observation tower above the hotel you can see the Nusa Dua complex and hotels (starting with the Hilton) over a mile away.
Pool is great!!
We didn't stay here, we stayed at the Niksoma, which was fantastic. However, we did drive here and were shown the rooms and the grounds. The pool looked fantastic and the staff were very friendly and willing to show us around. We will stay here next time we go to Bali. It's perfect if you don't mind being too far away from Kuta / Nusa Dua.
