Getaways are a mainstay in our calls, and this incredible Balinese resort is the latest addition to our Nusa Dua hitlist – here’s why.
This weekend, carve out some time for yourself to unwind at an all-inclusive resort paradise that is scenic, relaxing and oh so picture-worthy. Whether you’re a resident lusting after a healing retreat, or a visitor flying out here for a tropical holiday, we reckon a stay at Meliá Bali will satisfy all your sunshine-filled vacay dreams.
Meliá Bali has our vote for bringing together modern creature comforts while staying true to its local roots. Think contemporary facilities housed in a compound dotted with stone sculptures, alongside landscape paintings showcasing its Balinese soul.
As soon as you enter, the staff cheerily greet you in sarongs with batik prints, and the music you hear is played on traditional local instruments like bamboo xylophones. If that isn’t a warm Balinese welcome, we don’t know what is.
In the market for something more immersive? Dive into workshops that let you try your hand at creating traditional art or whipping up your fave Indonesian dishes.
Soothe your nerves
The beach beckons with bean bags laid out on the shore, the garden is filled with the scents of native flora, and it’s all decidedly relaxing. But if we wanted to take de-stressing to the next level, we’d head straight for a Yhi spa massage at a breezy outdoor gazebo while enjoying the greenery.
Good news for parents: The family package options are here to brighten your day, with activities to keep your kids occupied so that you can enjoy a spot of rejuvenation in peace.
Less environmental guilt equals a more enjoyable vacation. Lift your spirits with the knowledge that Meliá Bali is an eco-minded resort with continuously evolving sustainability practices.
We’re talking energy-saving architecture that allows lots of natural light in to decrease the amount of electricity used; plastic reduction initiatives like the use of straws made from cassava starch and other natural ingredients; waste management that promotes recycling and more.
Already packing your bags?
We know, a few nights at a beachfront sanctuary like this is hella tempting. This gorgeous enclave gives you access to accommodation, dining and spa options under the same roof with the All-Inclusive Package. It’s also a mere 20-minute drive from Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport and walking distance to shopping centres and tourist attractions.
As you get booking, look to THE LEVEL for exclusive services and benefits tailored to your needs – whether you’re seeking access to tranquil, adults-only spaces or a children-friendly stay for the family.
For friends, solo travellers or couples wanting some peace and quiet, make a beeline for the adults-only areas (no kids!). These include a private lounge (complete with free cocktails), beach and pool bar (serving up complimentary afternoon tea).
On the other hand, the family option gives little ones access to special amenities, an exclusive children-friendly pool and even a selection of in-room games on request. There’s also a designated beach area and lagoon bar where the whole fambam can regroup for some breezy quality time.
