Hugging the east coast of the Bukit Peninsula in South Bali, Nusa Dua is home to many of Bali’s best five-star stays.

Fringed by palms and powdery white sand, this gated tourism enclave is free of the honking taxis and traffic jams you might find elsewhere. It’s also one of the safest places to holiday in Bali.

And with its calm ocean and good mix of activities for all ages, it’s a popular destination with families.

Jimbaran’s seafood barbecues, Uluwatu’s surf breaks, and Tanjung Benoa’s watersports are an easy taxi ride away.
