The uber luxe Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with a refreshed look, new dining concepts and très chic lifestyle outlets!
When it comes to the best beachfront hotels in Bali, there’s SO many to choose from. From sleek suites and private villas, to glittering pools and white-sandy beaches on your doorstep – the options are as endless as the ocean horizon. But when we want to experience luxury living right on the beach, complete with gourmet dining destinations and lavish accommodation, we make our way to the très chic and ever-magnifique Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort.
A perfect marriage of French elegance with Balinese charm, there’s nothing quite like Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort – so much so, even celebs and world leaders have stayed at this luxe address! And with its stylish suites, sophisticated dining spots à la Paris, Nusa Dua beach just footsteps away with water sports galore, there’s so much to love about this beachfront resort.
And as if we need more reason to put Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort on our Bali bucket list, the resort has been recently revamped for its 10 year anniversary on 20th December 2023. So, we headed to Nusa Dua to take a sneaky peek! For starters, the luxurious suites and villas have been given a stunning new look, while some of our favourite foodie destinations (hint: one of the best Sunday Brunches on the island!) is now even more sumptuous, alongside a number of new outlets to live your VVIP life…
A glamorous makeover for a more luxurious stay
As one of Bali’s most high-end addresses, Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort is home to hundreds of elegantly designed rooms fit for a VIP. And the best bit is, these rooms, suites and private pool villas have now been given an upgrade for the big 10th anniversary, making way for an even more glamorous stay. We love the bright new colour palettes, the contemporary interiors and the new granite flooring – the best way to say bienvenue to your home away from home!
You’ll be able to live it up in all the rooms, but we say why not go all out and stay in the Presidential Villa. The 2,022-sqm private pool villa boasts three bedrooms, a spacious open living area and a dining room, as well as an additional swimming pool. With the recently added jacuzzi (complete with in-room amenities by L’Occitane, no less!), you’ll want to nab the master bedroom. Spend the whole day here and immerse in Sofitel’s Art De Vivre topped with Balinese culture, or venture outside to the villa’s lush lawn that’s also been revamped!
Cooking up something new and fabulously sustainable
Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort’s famous Cucina Restaurant has reopened with an invigorating new look and an authentic Italian-Mediterranean menu, served up by the expert staff who now wear zero-waste uniforms. Think food from the heart made with locally-sourced ingredients, courtesy of Chef Patrizia Battolu and her culinary team. And yep, the highly sought after Cucina Brunch now offers a melting pot of cuisines too, running from 11am, all the way through until 5pm! The famous Sunday ritual now combines brunch with a soirée by the shore at the resort’s beachfront lounge, Toya Beach Bar & Grill – think live DJs, happy hours and fish feeding in the sea!
This sea-breezy lounge has been refurbished to give you the ultimate afternoon atmosphere by the beach. Taking centre stage is the bar, with its brand new beach shack-chic design. The indoor and outdoor dining area invites you to a laid-back barbecue dinner, while the beach area is decked with sunbeds and fire pits for day-to-night lounging with a cocktail in hand.
Add on some VVIP experiences
If you’re an Accor Live Limitless Platinum member or above, get ready to experience the crème de la crème of luxury, plus VVIP benefits galore! For starters, you’ll have access to express check-in and check-out services, as well as the new-and-improved Club Millésime. The exclusive club lounge is decked out in sleek design and contemporary decor, where you can wine and dine all day, and be pampered by the professional butlers. Stop by in the morning for an upscale breakfast, then enjoy a sophisticated high-tea in the late afternoon. Come back again in the evening, where canapés and a glass of wine await before dinner. And if you’re planning a special event? The resort’s spacious ballrooms and function rooms have received a makeover too, ready for your next elegant celebration!
For upgraded French-Balinese luxury where you can sleep, eat and play in style (all just footsteps from the beach), we couldn’t think of a better way to spend our Nusa Dua vacay!
