Set on Bali’s south-eastern coast, 40 minutes from Denpasar airport, Nusa Dua is a private enclave where you find some of Bali’s best hotels that line white sandy beaches.

There is a small market square lined with good restaurants, shops and stalls to browse. You can also tee off from numerous golf courses, or see the Barong performances at the artistic village of Batubulan which is home to a host of galleries and craft shops, as well as the ornate temple of Pura Puseh.

Take some time to discover some of the many other beautiful temples in the area and visit the museums near Nusa Dua. Surrounded by forests and overlooking the sea, Pura Gegar, an intricately carved stone temple awaits, while not too far away Museum Pasifika houses artworks from the Asia-Pacific area.

If you are keen to take your adventure to the next level, we can even arrange for you to climb the steps of Mount Agung to Mother Temple Besakih on its slopes. It is situated almost 1000m up the side of Gunung Agung, and is considered one of the holiest Hindu temples in Bali.
