Long stretches of white sand border the town of Nusa Dua and separate the quiet streets and indigo waters. Soaring coconut palms shade the coastline amongst the hidden cafes that fill the air with the seductive aroma of freshly brewed coffee. The aromas of nutmeg and clove emanate from the market before fading beneath the scent of wild hibiscus growing around the outskirts of town. Your flight will land at Ngurah Rai International Airport where your private transfer will meet you upon arrival. You will pass the gates that lead into Nusa Dua to find a hotel that blends contemporary luxury with architecture inspired by Balinese tradition. Two islands to the east resemble mounds rising out of the Indian Ocean as the sand glints against the lapping water as surfers take to the waves breaking past the reef.
After settling into the comforts of your resort-style accommodation, you will make your way to Pandawa Beach for an introduction to the captivating mixture of land and sea. Towering limestone cliffs hide the long beach, and the cliffs contain human-made arches inside which stand statues that depicting heroes from the epic of Mahabharata. Colorful waistcloths decorate the white stone statues that elegantly bring together the splendor of Bali’s nature with the community’s deep connection to heritage.
