Bali is a travel destination famous for its incredible range of resorts to choose from.
Whether tourists want a classic coastal getaway in Kuta, a cultural retreat in Ubud, or a family vacation in Sanur, there is a destination for everyone in Bali.
One destination, however, has drastically grown in interest this year so far.
Nusa Dua is famous for being the most luxurious resort in Bali.
The coastal resort is home to some of the most expensive and exclusive hotels on the island and is the destination of choice for world leaders, celebrities, and tourists seeking that once-in-a-lifetime kind of indulgence.
Whether it’s down to excellent marketing, the influence of hosting last year’s G20 Summit, or the post-pandemic bounce back, it’s hard to say just one reason, but the demand for vacations in Nusa Dua has increased by nearly 100% in 2023 so far.

The General Manager of The Nusa Dua, I Gusti Ngurah Ardita, has told reporters how hotel occupancy in the resort area increased by 97.33% compared to the same period in 2022.
Ardita explained, “The average occupancy rate during January-June 2023 reached 67.33%, which experienced a growth of 97.33% from the average occupancy rate in the same period in 2022, which only recorded a figure of 34.02%”.

It must be taken into account that Indonesia’s borders did not open for international travel until February 2022, which does influence the hotel occupancy data – however, a nearly 100% increase in demand for travel to Nusa Dua is telling.
Travelers are clearly looking for luxurious destinations with access to five-star facilities and the pristine sandy beaches that Nusa Dua offers in droves.
@justanotherprgirl Enjoy the most unhinged voiceover of all time. 10/10 would recommend the Apurva Kempinski Bali in Nusa Dua though 🏝️ #bali #nusadua #indonesia #apurvakempinskibali #traveltok #balitravel #balitrip #luxuryhotels #luxuryresort #fyp ♬ original sound – Just Another PR Girl
But it is not only demand for hotels in Nusa Dua that is increasing.
Nusa Dua is known as being a part of the island with fewer attractions and sights than areas like Ubud, meaning it is often overlooked by tourists who are seeking a more action-packed vacation.
Yet the tourist attractions in Nusa Dua itself are also increasing in popularity.
Ardita explained, “The Water Blow Peninsula Tourism Destination Are, which is one of the natural tourist spots, recorded tourist visits of 27,741 during that period, or grew 69% compared to visits in the same period of 2022 of 16,450 people.”
The Water Blow at Nusa Dua is an incredible sight. Furious waves come rolling into a tiny cove on the Nusa Dua Peninsula, resulting in a huge crash of water coming up and over the rocks.
It is an exhilarating sight and certainly not to be missed during a visit to Nusa Dua.

Nusa Dua may be synonymous with ultra-luxurious and exclusive hotels, but the world-class resort is more accessible than many travelers realize.
The premium destination is home to a great range of hotels, many of which offer great value for money.
Novotel Balu Nusa Dua, for example, has rooms available in the high season starting from USD 145. Similarly, Mercure Bali Nusa Dua offers tourists 4-star accommodation and service from USD 45 per night throughout the year.
With the demand for vacations in Nusa Dua increasing, those planning their next Bali adventure can be sure to find great deals popping up left, right, and center.
Tourists can look forward to total rest and relaxation in Nusa Dua.
The resort is home to some of the best spas on the island and, to the surprise of many, an incredible food scene.
Of course, with five-star resorts comes five-star dining. Foodies are spoilt for choice when it comes to fine dining in Nusa Dua, with the Koral Restaurant at Apurva Kempinski and Kayuputi at The St. Regis always featuring high on the foodie bucket list.
