Melia Bali 

Traditional Balinese family-friendly beach resort

24-acre gardens are home to the traditionally designed and down-to-earth Melia Bali.

Beachfront in Nusa Dua is a prime resort location, but this Balinese bolthole doesn’t just rest on its exceptional setting. There are wonderfully natural-feeling gardens scattered with palms, bougainvillea and water features, and the resort has an authentic Balinese style with teakwood, deity statues and thatch all used in abundance. Then there’s the YHI Spa which sits in a shaded corner of the resort, not too far from the slither of golden sands; our go-to spot for a well-deserved treatment is without a doubt, one of the open-air massage gazebos that are located poolside, hidden away in the gardens or just steps from the beach.

Why we love Melia Bali

  • A wonderfully positioned resort located on Nusa Dua's beach and surrounded by tropical gardens

  • Immerse yourself in Balinese culture with a traditional dance class or cooking lesson

  • Be pampered in the YHI Spa or in one of the open-air massage gazebos

  • Practice your golf swing on the resort's simulator
