Hotel Bualu was the first hotel in Nusa Dua and offers tranquility and a relaxed style. Its proximity to the beaches of Nusa Dua and affordable rate make this a good choice for those wanting to escape the madhouse of Kuta.

Atmosphere:
The atmosphere is of a low key older hotel that is tucked away in a quiet place. The hotel actually felt deserted when I visited. Plenty of plants, grass and trees and the 2 pools give a relaxing feel outside.

The blocks of rooms maybe not be a lot of people’s image of Bali.

Location:
The hotel is opposite the Hilton and close to the golf course. Its also 300 meter from the beach. The shopping in Kuta is 25 minutes away and the Seminyak nightlife is 40 minutes. Nusa Dua Galleria is 2 minutes drive but has limited offerings.

Luxury Scale:
I wouldn’t call this place luxurious although it is tranquil, does have nice grounds, 2 pools, a restaurant and AC rooms that come with mini bar, IDD and cable TV.

Staff Friendliness:
The receptionist smiled at me and was polite. Mr Oka Dira the Front Office Manager was very nice too.

Weird Stuff:
This was the first hotel in Nusa Dua built before the construction of the ?Nusa Dua Resort Complex’ and isn’t a resort although it is surrounded by resorts. There are some weird dragon sculpture climbing up pillars at the entrance to the restaurant.

What makes this place unique?:
This hotel is unique because it is an affordable option in the heart of an expensive resort area. It has close access to the golf club, beach and provides a quiet place to relax.

Why would you stay here?:
I would stay here if I was looking to surf Nusa Dua everyday as the location is prime. Also for a family who likes a quiet, tranquil location, with some extras like the restaurant, pool, AC, TV, but doesn’t want to spend $200 a night.

Why would you stay somewhere else?:
I would stay somewhere else if relaxation wasn’t my prime motivation. Access to Balinese culture is limited and shopping and nightlife requires a 30-45 minutes ride.

For backpackers the price might be a little steep and for people wanting genuine luxury this might not fit the bill.
