Recently opened, Renaissance Nusa Dua Resort is the second Renaissance hotels in the Island of the Gods that brings its theatrical design and unexpected mindset to Nusa Dua, Bali
Perched on the hills above Nusa Dua and overlooking sprawling views of the lush green canopy and Indian Ocean, the resort offers for both business and leisure travellers alike and features world-class facilities. As soon as you walk into the lobby, you will be blown away by the chic interior design and the attention to detail.
Drawing inspiration from the grand theatrics of traditional Balinese dances, especially the Barong Dance, the design of the Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort pays homage to one of the oldest forms of performing arts of the island. The resort is an ode to the richness of Balinese culture, brought to life by the meticulous design work of P49 Deesign. Created as sacred rituals and for entertainment, traditional Balinese dance routines are heavily influenced by nature and guests can discover these highlights in the ‘Good versus Evil’ murals and prints at R Bar, the vibrant industrial-style design at the Backstage, as well as the charming dance performance patterns adorning the backdrop of the ballroom.
The resort boasts 310 stylish guest rooms and suites that are thoughtfully-designed as a tribute to the island’s heritage – with a Balinese mask pattern on the ceiling, a modern invention of ‘Balinese dancer’s head’ gobo light, and turquoise-accented walls for a sense of calm. Featuring breathtaking views of the island, the rooms are seamlessly designed, with spacious bathrooms. A homage to the natural elements of the island, decorative wall ceramics adorn the walls to enhance the look of the space, with a freestanding ivory bathtub as its centerpiece.
Food and beverage are well catered for and Renaissance Bali Nusa Dua Resort has several venues to choose from. There is an all-day dining restaurant Backstage, which presents wide selections of local and international favorites at its buffet and live stations. Lion X is a contemporary Chinese restaurant with innovative offerings such as Dim Sum as well as Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine with modern twist. The authentic Indonesian restaurant, Nusantara by Locavore, spotlights the country’s culinary heritage with a fresh look at its regional cuisines. A pottery atelier and cooking lab by day, Tanah Liat transforms by evening into an arts-and-crafts inspired restaurant featuring locally sourced fresh seasonal seafood and plant-based cuisines.
Atomic 17 is the resort’s resident pool bar, which serves fresh juices and smoothies as well as purist cocktail as the day progresses. For a more relaxed ambience, R Bar situated in the lobby area,
is the right place to unwind over crafted cocktails, cold-brew coffee, and more by an expert mixologist and barista.
