7 Reasons to Stay at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua

In many cases when I stay in bigger, well-known hotels, I tend to feel like I could be anywhere in the world as the settings are very similar: nice lobby, modern rooms with comfy bed, and a sizable shower and bath.

But this is far from the case at Sofitel in Nusa Dua, Bali. The moment you enter the lobby, you immediately feel as if you are somewhere exotic, somewhere special. I just love the way Sofitel kept the traditional Balinese architectural design, but stayed true to its brand by adding a touch of French flair.

After checking-in, I was given a tour around the Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua property. While walking around, I knew right away that I would stay in the resort more so than explore Bali itself.

Check out these 7 Reasons Why Sofitel Needs to be a part of your itinerary on your next visit to Bali!

1. The Room

One of the sexiest rooms I’ve stayed at so far.

The moment I entered through the door, there was this elegant fragrance that (I kid you not) tickled every sensation in my body, which ultimately set the tone/the vibe of the room.

Overall, there was a lot of thought that came into decor of the room. Every little detail creates a cozy, modern, and sexy ambiance.

You’ll love it.

2. The pool lagoon

When you check-in to Sofitel, make sure you ask for the room with the direct access to the pool lagoon.

Why walk to the bat when you can swim to the bar?!

3. L’OH Pool Bar

Speaking of the bar, the pool bar at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua has great selection of food and drinks.

I also very much enjoy the atmosphere and vibe here. One of the highlights of my stay at Sofitel was meeting a mother and daughter on their vacay from Australia at L’OH pool bar. We chatted for a bit and I ended up being the adopted son and brother for the duration of my stay in Sofitel!

4. The short walk to the beach!!

Sofitel has their own private beach with lounge chairs and cabanas waiting for you!

5. The Sunday Brunch

Every calorie was seriously worth it. I wasn’t even ashamed doing the walk of shame back to the buffet line.

6. The SPA!

When you are in paradise and been baking out in the sun all day, it’s not a bad idea to visit Sofitel Bali’s Beauty Clinic to make sure you are still looking fresh after all that sun exposure 😉

It was a crisp, clean, and woodsy scent which complemented the exotic location of the resort, but also had undertones that resonated with the Sofitel brand (aka: sexy)

7. The Staff

Well, it goes without saying the staff at Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua was so hospitable and gave first class treatment the moment I checked-in until I checked-out. But what I loved and remember the most was being greeted with “Bonjour” at any moment and at any time I passed a Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua staff.


Loved having our own pool off our room. Staff were lovely. Buffet breakfast was great! The beach lounges and permanent shade huts were awesome!



Sofitel Bali has an amazing interior design of the room and hotel ground area. It is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Staffs are friendly and what we like the most is the architecture and plantation design and layout of the hotel, walking around inside the hotel is a delight. Swimming pool is much better than we expected, with a nice pool bar and swimming tunnel in both wings with beautiful plantations. Hotel buffet was great with many options and dishes rotate throughout the week so we have always had surprises for the two times we went there for dinner. Furniture in the room is modern and comfortable.



Food was fantastic, the best breakfast I’ve seen in a hotel. Easy taxi service from hotel but must bargain your fares. Many different attractions and places to see in Bali. A true lost paradise!!

Location was good, nice walk to main shopping area of Nusa Dua. Swimming pool offered comfy day beds with quality towels with a swim up bar for cocktail hour each afternoon.



The swimming pool was amazing staff spectacular.everything was beyond perfect will definitely visit next time!
