Nusa Dua

Conrad Bali


168 Jalan Pratama, Nusa Dua,


The most family-friendly of Bali’s resorts, the Conrad has over 1,000 feet of pristine beach fronting a calm, child-safe lagoon—and a plethora of activities that take advantage of the setting. Friendly, switched-on staffers in khakis and sneakers guide older kids and parents in water sports like parasailing, kayaking, wakeboarding, and sailing; they also run the Kura Kura Kid’s Club, where younger kids participate in Balinese arts and crafts, kite-making, and sandcastle-building contests. The resort’s 298 rooms, spread among seven acres of gardens, are spacious and contemporary (no delicate antiques to knock over—just clean-lined furniture and comfy couches); each comes with a stuffed toy monkey and rubber bath turtle for the little ones. The onsite restaurants include the casual, poolside Eight Degrees South—great for lunchtime wraps, burgers, and fish and chips—and the more refined Spice, where adults can enjoy Middle- and Far-East cuisine.
