A recent trip back to Bali saw us luxuriating at Conrad Bali, and we couldn’t be more thankful for the stay. Sure, there is no lack of luxurious resorts at The Island of Gods, and we have been to several beautiful ones. But Conrad Bali is one at Nusa Dua that left great impressions on us, and it was hard to say goodbye.
Sitting along the coast of Nusa Dua, Conrad Bali has a series of rooms and suites that cater to various preferences. Soak up in the gigantic pool that is surrounded by lush palm trees, or suntan on the sandy beach – just at the foot of the property – that spans across 350 metres.
We put up at the Conrad Suites – a private wing that is adjacent to the main resort, and comes complete with an adults-only pool and Conrad lounge.
We woke up to peaceful mornings, and if you are feeling more diligent, set your alarms to wake up for the sunrise yoga.
All guests of Conrad Suites are entitled to daily complimentary afternoon tea and evening cocktail at the lounge, and we couldn’t have asked for more. Laundry services are also on the house, and the housekeeping team made it so easy for us to have clean swimwear and pressed shirts.
The restaurants within the property are of pretty high standards, too. Our favourite has to be Eight Degrees South – a beachfront al fresco dining outlet that serves a contemporary menu.
It also offers a private romantic dinner by night, where you and your lover get a pavilion to yourselves, and an exquisite multi-course dinner is prepared specially for you in a candlelit setting.
Otherwise, Rin is a Japanese restaurant that whips up both traditional and interesting fusion creations. The affordable menu is a plus point. You know, when you go for a resort holiday, you just don’t want to get out to hunt for food. You have to try the Stir Fried Yaki Udon (RP140k). It comes with a slow-cooked pork belly that was so melty, we had it every day during our stay.
And the highlight of Conrad Bali? Its Infinity Chapel, of course. Dubbed as the most iconic chapel in Bali, this wedding venue that floats two metres above sea level is extremely popular. Stunning architecture with a fine marble walkway, this is what wedding goals look like, and we are honestly so tempted to celebrate our intimate nuptial here.
