Marriott Vacation Club expands its footprint in Nusa Dua, Bali perched in the hills of the island’s southernmost region, about 20 minutes away from the airport and close to the area’s most popular beaches and cultural sites.
Nestled in the tranquil community of Nusa Dua, Marriott’s Bali Nusa Dua Terrace combines the best of vacation ownership and a lifestyle resort experience. The resort features 88 units offering one-, two-, and three-bedroom luxury apartments designed to feel like a private residence with a spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen, separate bedroom suite with a spa-like bathroom, and outdoor terrace with a private plunge pool. Each apartment’s interior features artfully-blended rich hues and intricate wood carvings as well as pillows, throws, and other décor with colorful patterns, gold accents, and diverse textures to reflect the joy and spirit of local Balinese culture – specifically, the annual Galungan Celebration, which is one of the island’s most important traditions. Apartment amenities include a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and in-unit washer and dryer, with baby/toddler items such as cribs and highchairs available upon request.
Owners and guests of Marriott’s Bali Nusa Dua Terrace have full access to the shared amenities at the co-located Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort. The 5-star hotel currently features:
Four Outdoor Swimming Pools include main pool, lap pool, and kid’s pool. The lagoon-like jungle pool is a stand-out, embodying the natural beauty that the island is renowned for, surrounded by lush greenery and a man-made waterfall.
Six Anticipated Food and Beverage Outlets: Days can begin with an espresso at R Bar, an artistic lobby bar where guests and locals can mix and mingle over a full cocktail program and live music. Atomic 17 is the resort’s poolside lounge, which serves fresh juices and smoothies during the day and handcrafted cocktails in the evening. Main restaurant Backstage Food Theatre offers a wide selection of local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as live cooking demonstrations from chefs. And, still to come is Lion X, a contemporary Chinese restaurant with traditional Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine handmade daily, as well as Tanah Liat, a pottery atelier by day and an arts-and-craft-inspired restaurant in the evening serving fresh seasonal seafood and plant-based dishes. Additionally, opening early next year, Nusantara by Locavore will serve authentic Indonesian cuisine.
The SPA at Renaissance features a thoughtfully curated menu of body treatments, facials, and massages inspired by ancient Balinese techniques and using only fresh natural ingredients. For an immersive wellness experience, guests can craft their own products at the Spa Mixologist Bar under the guidance of expert artisans.
Children’s Activities: For travelers with children 4-12 years old, the complimentary Lava Land Kids Club is the ultimate playground. Kids can play and mingle in the spacious indoor and outdoor play area inspired by volcanos, with large colorful structures, sand pits, and rock-climbing walls.
Owners and guests can explore the island by visiting some of the most favourite tourist attractions such as The Museum Pasifika, Pura Geger, Serangan Island, and Bali Camel Safari. Beyond the resort, culinary delights are found in every corner of Bali. Must-visits are the Art Café Bumbu Bali, known for its authentic Balinese recipes spearheaded by acclaimed Chef Heins von Holzen, and Warung Bejana Nusa Dua, a staple for authentic Indonesian cuisine offered via their Balinese “Rijsttafel”, a collection of small plates served in multiple courses that offers a feast for all the senses.
Translating to “Two Islands”, Nusa Dua features two headlands, each topped with a temple. Plus, just minutes away are some of Bali’s best natural and cultural sites, further establishing the region as a coveted destination for travelers seeking balance between tranquility and adventure.
Owners and guests can explore deep cultural connections by visiting The Museum Pasifika, which showcases works of art inspired by the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the Pura Geger temple, a premier cultural landmark and one of the town’s most coveted natural sites overlooking the ocean from a forested bluff.
