Whether you take the day trip to Lembongan Island or a romantic weekend away for two, the Waka Nusa will show you the real Bali that often hides itself behind a veneer of 20th century Western sophistication. At the Waka Nusa Resort you will begin to fully appreciate the inherent grace and dignity of the Balinese people as you involve yourself in the rich culture and scenic splendour of the Island. The Waka philosophy is based on a deep and enduring love for the natural environment of Bali and the other Islands of Indonesia. Everywhere, visitors are surrounded by pristine clear waters and coral reefs, the beauty of nature and the smiling grace of the Indonesian people.
The luxury 16-metre Waka Sailing Catamaran will deliver you across the Badung Straight to Lembongan Island and the resort of Waka Nusa. The Catamaran has a large spacious cabin able to accommodate 20 people seated and up to 10 outside. The voyage to the island takes approximately two hours and complimentary food and beverages are served by the friendly and very professional crew throughout the trip.
Nusa Lembongan is situated 12 kilometres East of Bali and the Waka Nusa faces Sanur and the well known Gunung Agung volcano. Here, time has stopped and the Balinese traditions and culture are still the same as they
were many years ago. The Waka Nusa has 10 Lanais (villas) built amongst a palm tree
plantation edging the white sand beach of
Tanjung Sanghiang; a turquoise lagoon and coral reef with the Segara temple and its centuries old Kapok tree as its setting. The architecture is inspired by the romantic round shaped buildings and the materials used are in harmony with the natural landscape and local tradition.
Upon arrival at Lembongan Island you go ashore in glass-bottomed boats and at the Waka Nusa Resort you’ll receive a traditional greeting and welcome drink you can then either laze by the pool or get straight into the many activities available including: surfing on one of three great reef breaks or you can go snorkelling at ‘play ground’ reef or have a trip around the coral reefs by glass bottom boat and watch the multitudes of tropical fish, go by vehicle to the village of Lembongan and see the underground house and seaweed farms, or you can lie on the white sand beach in front of the resort, play volley ball or just relax with a massage from soft Balinese hands.
For lunch you’ll enjoy a wonderful Balinese meal at a long buffet table, sitting with new friends, and the food and drink are endless. After lunch you can relax or take part in the activities programme again and if you change your mind about going back – no problem you can check in and stay for the night. Back to the boat tired, suntanned happy the sails are raised and it’s back home to Benoa Harbour. On the way sunset cocktails and afternoon snacks are served and with a setting sun you can reminisce on an unforgettable Waka Nusa.
Waka Nusa is your own private retreat on a tropical Island staying in a comfortable grass-roofed lanai, far from the trials and tribulation of the modern world. An experience you will carry in your memory for years. A romantic night on an enchanted island, sleeping under a blanket of a hundred thousand stars, lulled by the trade winds in the palm trees and the distance breaking of the surf on a coral reef. Wake to the songs of the birds, and breakfast on luscious local fruits, fresh baked breads and world famous Bali coffee while gazing out over the sea.
At Waka Nusa you will experience something different, something steeped in Balinese cultural traditions in a truly amazing setting. Getting to the Resort is simple and easy, which is located at Tanjung Sanghyang bay, Lembongan Island. Transfer by catamaran about 2 hours from Benoa harbour across the Badung strait and just 30 minutes by fast boat from Sanur bay.
