The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali
Travel Blogs from Nusa Dua
You start with an hour to Heathrow, courtesy of that honourable chap Stephen Whaley, then having dropped your bags you hang about for a couple of hours, then you hang about at 37,000 feet for a little over 12 hours vainly trying to get much sleep. Then you spend an hour clearing Singapore Immigration, collecting bags, checking in for JetStar flight …
So we made it.
After all the packing, the tough decisions about which shoes to leave behind and which trashy novel to read on the plane. In between packing for the family and sneaking toys out of the suit cases when the children weren't looking, only to find that same toy had mysteriously reappeared. After a momentary panic attack and the …
The day we arrived, it was sunny and this day was no different. Blue skies and lovely warm weather. We loaded up on the buffet breakfast which at $12 for Helen and I each and free for Lilli, was good value. We dropped Lilli off at the kids club which had a trampoline, so that she could make some friends and have a bit of a play. Kites. There are a …
Today we checked out of the Mercure Harvestland which was very clean and new but very small and, well, meh. Going into Nusa Dua, though, is like entering a separate kingdom. The dividing line is district. On one side is typical struggletown Kuta, on the other is clipped lawns, spotless gardens and security (secmen) aplenty. The taxi driver was …
The Westin was a large hotel, the room was compact but very comfortable, the balcony was tiny and a little pointless. The weather was overcast, cool and fresh a pleasant change to the temperatures of Dubai the restaurant food was fabulous but along with the drinks expensive. On the first evening we walked up the coastal path past all the hotels to …

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali
This hotel is perfect if you're looking for beach and relaxation.
We stayed 14 nights in the Royal Beach Club and were treated like royalty. Excellent rooms, excellent staff.
spent seven days at westin with my family. the hotel was newly renovated with a fusion of western and a touch of balinese decoration. the room we had was great, facing the pool and beach at the royal beach club. it even has a living and dining area with a large bedroom and a large bathroom with twin basin, separate shower and tub. the balcony was extra large with two lounge chairs with a view to die for.
I stayed three days and two nights at the Westin and enjoyed my short stay. The Westin standard room was good, the pool was great, especially the basketball hoop by the pool, and the beach was safe and secured. You can shuttle or walk off the property to shop and eat. The staff was very nice and professional. I would go back tomorrow if I could.
Service this bad, tot i'm in westin KL
From rude staff to unapproachable management... i'm in bali to relax, not to experience Bad Attitudes!!! So pretentious! Hate Westin Bali!
My parents and I just came back from Bali, where we stayed at the Westin Nusa Dua for one night. We stayed in a Royal Beach Club Terrace room and I personally found the experience very satisfying. The room included hotel transfers and access to the Royal Beach Club lounge, which provides breakfast, light lunches, and high tea. The hotel allowed us an early check in at 9am and late check out at 4pm the next day and still only charged us for the 1 night we booked. The room is not as spacious as other hotels on Nusa Dua and the bathroom is not equipped with an exhaust fan, but it is still a pleasant room with very comfortable beds. The room also includes a complimentary plate of chocolates and a fruit basket with fruits that will last you at least 2 days. The staff encourages guests to feed the squirrels roaming the grounds, which is a fun activitiy for children. One thing to note is to avoid Ikan restaurant when hungry and try other restaurants at the hotel instead. Overall, I am most impressed with the service. The staff are friendly and eager to help. I rang the express service for some pimple cream and they brought me a tube within 20 minutes. My father wanted to play pingpong but had no partner to play with so one of the staff obliged. What was unexpected was that a Westin staff met us at the airport to escort us through check in up until we went into the waiting room. A wonderful end to a short stay in Bali..
First class with kids
The Westin is a great place to stay if you have children and stay in a family room. We have three kids and the family unit on the ground floor was perfect. They cater well for children with a good and cheap(er) kids menu, things to do, good pool and beach access, playstation and cable tv in the rooms and very friendly and helpful staff.
Breakfasts were great too and they tried very hard to do an Indo cappucino!
Problems: not many other kids to play with, changing of the daily "program" without warning.
Western Hotel planted in Bali
The Westin is a great hotel if you are looking for a Western Hotel planted in Bali. The Hotel has a great Gym and a nice pool. The property is almost entirely full of rooms and convention rooms so there isn't much space for a lush garden. The lobby is Grand.
The rooms are much better than their neighbor at the Sheraton.
The one drawback is that they do not have baths in every room and there are a chunk of rooms directly above the resturaunts so very noisy
If you can afford it, the only hotels possibly better than the Westin Resort, Nusa Dua, are the Ritz, Amandari, and the Inter-Continental. The Ritz is out of this world fabulous, with a price tag to match. Just go there for dinner at DAVA restaurant. The Amandari is too quiet -- perfect for monks and honeymooners who don't want to be disturbed. Also very expensive.
We just spent two nights at the Westin and two nights at the Sheraton (next door to the Westin). Although we were greeted with a friendly staff and service (including a refreshing lemon drink), after our daytime excursion, we returned to our Westin room at night and found ants crawling all over our bed sheets and night stands!! We informed the front counter of this and requested our rooms to be changed. They paraded us across the front lobby where staff were pointing at us and whispering. The next room had ants as well, but in the bathroom and not on the bed and nightstand. the bathroom had an awful sewage smell though and the AC did not work properly. (The AC was better in our previous ant-filled room)
