For those business travelers, finding a hotel with a good location, free Wi-Fi, and meeting spaces is important. Take a look at our expert picks for the best business hotels in Nusa Dua, in the southern part of Bali, and start planning your trip!
Though this upscale, 494-room resort draws mostly couples here on leisure, its impressive conference facilities make it a hub for business events (it offers a wide rage of meeting rooms and event spaces, the largest of which can accommodate up to 400 guests, cocktail or theater style). There are also six bars and restaurants, including the 24-hour El Patio Coffee Shop and the dinner-only Sakura Japanese Restaurant, which serves sashimi, sushi, and teppanyaki.
Situated at the end of a quiet road lined with other luxury resorts, this clifftop resort is just five minutes from central Nusa Dua. Its 81 villas and suites blend of contemporary and traditional Indonesian decor, and have top-notch amenities and balconies looking over the ocean. There are two excellent restaurants and two meeting rooms with audiovisual equipment and catering services, as well as free Wi-Fi throughout the property.
Formerly the Bali Hilton, the 541-room Ayodya Resort Bali is a sprawling, upscale beachside property with an enormous spa, a fitness center, and lagoon-style and infinity pools. Extensive meeting facilities also make the Ayodya Resort an obvious venue for conferences and events, and there are plenty of restaurants with cuisine ranging from Italian pastas to Japanese teppanyaki. Most rooms have attractive Balinese decor and marble bathrooms are lovely, though some furniture looks a touch dated -- still, they're a great value for this caliber. While the beachside location makes the Ayodya Resort a popular choice, just note that there's little within walking distance.
The Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa is a luxury family-friendly property located right on a quiet sandy beach in the Nusa Dua Peninsula, an area home to many other high-end resorts. Its 382 rooms are spacious, sunny and upscale, with plenty of traditional Balinese touches such as delicate wood carvings and flower designs, and furnished terraces, some with direct access to the lagoon pool. There are also seven meeting rooms, lots of event space, an outdoor amphitheater, a fitness center featuring tennis and squash courts, two large pools, and a diving center with free scuba diving lessons. Varied dining options range from casual Italian to Balinese fine dining, but food gets mixed reviews.
The 127-room Sol Beach House Benoa Bali is an upscale all-inclusive situated on a beautiful sandy beach in the Tanjung Benoa area. Large rooms have contemporary decor with a few traditional Balinese details, as well as private balconies, spacious bathrooms with rain showers, and free Wi-Fi. The hotel has wedding and meeting services (including indoor and outdoor venues), three restaurants (including a 24-hour buffet and an Italian eatery), and a spacious fitness center with cardio and strength-training machines.
